About the Book

This heartwarming memoir is about a man whose childhood was besieged with seemingly insurmountable twists and turns. His father died when he was four years old, and his mother died when he turned nine. He and his four siblings were raised by his grandmother, who was the pillar of his life. With self-motivation, can-do spirit, and an inherited gene for hard work, he overcame the demoralizing challenges of life to become a successful man in his own right. The story teaches inspiring lessons about setting goals and working hard to achieve them. Because of the people who came into his life and upon whose shoulders he stood, the author achieved success at every phase of his life journey. The Intriguing Journey of My Life will inspire all readers, young and old to dream big, to aim high, and to achieve and exceed their expectations.
