9781477659748: Yes You Can! How to Be a Success No Matter Who You Are or Where You're From, Vol. 1

"Yes You Can ! How to Be a Success no Matter Who You Are or Where You're From" is a practical guide on how to get off the couch and take control of your life to realize your dreams. Filled with stories of people who have made it, author and entrepreneur Bill Townsend takes you on a journey to discover how to become successful in career, life, relationships, or anything you set your mind to accomplish.

Yes You Can is filled with stories of everyday people who have turned their lives around to become successful. The result of over 1,300 interviews and surveys with business owners and successful people, Townsend takes you through dozens of examples of people from broken homes, immigrants, single mothers, and other backgrounds and shows you how they started living lives of significance.

The book, also available for Kindle, is ideal for people of all levels, whether a high school student getting ready for his first job or her first year in college, or a 28 year old wondering if he's in the right career, or a 45 year old second guessing whether he's made the right decisions. It even highlights seniors who refuse to retire and shows how they can do more than wait around for their Social Security checks.

As James Kellahin, multi-award winning television director/ producer/writer says,

"Sorry, Harvard, you don’t need an MBA to rock the world.

“Yes You Can” is more than a “look what I did” memoir or an ego trip about business. Don’t let the simplicity of Bill’s presentation fool you. Buy the ticket. Take the journey.

You’ll travel through Bill’s experience and discover stories of others who have created successful lives, careers, and relationships. No matter who you are, you can use these pages to take control of your life and become more successful immediately.

Here’s the director’s advice. Own your own future. Take two chapters a day and change your life. You’re the next great story. Get started living it. Ready? OK. And, Action!"

If you need motivation or a push to help find your true calling, Yes You Can is worth reading.
