The Defining Path Reviews


His fourth book, The Defining Path – Your Purpose, Your Passion, Your Life, is an inspirational/motivational nonfiction for those who are struggling with finding out who they really are, their passion and purpose.

Deep down we all want to be the best versions of ourselves. We all want to be happy, fulfilled, purposeful, and successful, yet many don’t know the principles required to travel down and experience their path. We may have an idea or some knowledge but, for whatever reason, don’t do what’s necessary or put forth the effort, so some end up in a dark place, lost and full of despair.

Whether you are sixteen or seventy, college grads embarking on a new career, fledgling entrepreneurs, established executives, homemakers, CEOs, or retirees you’re all on the path of life. There are no exceptions! But are you pursuing the right path for you? Are you doing what brings you joy and self-actualization, a reason to rise each day with expectation? Just why are you here? And if in pursuit of that goal you suddenly realize this is not what you truly want to be and do, will you be considered fickle or flighty? No! Is it acceptable to reinvent myself several times? As many times as necessary. We are all evolving into our ultimate being.

The time is now for your defining path. And every day moving forward. Leverage your time and resources to propel you toward the career or volunteer position uniquely meant for you.
