“Leadership Is About Sharing Your Gifts. Every struggle teaches us something. That’s the gift. That’s why I wrote this book. Each of my struggles ultimately taught me something. Through those lessons I discovered struggle is the currency of progress. My hope is that my stories of struggle inspire you to view your struggles differently. You have more potential than you realize. There has never been a greater need for compassionate leadership. ” – Bobby Herrera
The book contains:
- Personal stories of his own struggles
- The life-changing lessons he learned
