About the Author
Craig M. Chavis Jr. is an award-winning author and interdisciplinary coach on a mission to help entrepreneurs discover, embrace, and transform their purpose into profits. He is a serial entrepreneur, a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer, a former division-1 collegiate athlete, and received his BSBA from Samford University and MBA from the University of Tampa. Craig is also a super foodie, world traveler, and lifelong learner.
"I read the book as a long-ago Peace Corps Volunteer curious about what Mr. Chavis learned and did as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Peru that would test and teach him and fire him up to write an inspirational guide that others might use in creating and carrying out a business or project idea.
This book is not a school-like entrepreneur's business guide but is more about one's inner and outer approach to goals and problem-solving. In this 157-page book, he distills the core story itself into 33 pages, each one prefaced by page with a big fat chapter number followed by a left-hand page displaying a sign-sized quote from others that reinforces his point. Moves right along, bam, bam.
It is an easy read and reference in which one follows Mr. Chavis's ups and downs and what he learned in a tricky environment and in himself. He puts it out passionately, and plain and simple."
