This isn't some Rah, Rah bullshit book that's designed to make you feel good about having a fucked up life. I wrote this book to show those of you out there that are in the struggle, what's possible if you work for it. Nothing in life is free. Everything costs money or time. Allow me to save you both by reading this book. Some of the stories you will read in this book will be hard to believe, but they are true netheless. I've replayed many of these scenes and scripts in my mind a thousand times, trying to figure out how in the hell things went down the way they did. At age seven I was adopted by my step dad; at age eight I was put to work by my step dad; at age 17 I dropped out of school; at age 21 I was in prison; at 23 divorced; at 24 I filed for bankruptcy; at 27 I was in federal prison again; at 28 I was divorced a second time; and at 35 divorced a third time. And that's just the 50,000-foot view. This book will explain it all and how it was all part of a plan from the universe to push me out of my comfort zone and into the hands of everyday winners like you. I wrote this book to show those who are oppressed with their past that it doesn't matter if you can develop skills. The timelines may t be exact, so just go with the flow and enjoy the story. It's about the big picture, t a timeline of when shit went down. Look at each chapter as its own individual story. When it happened is t really as important as the fact that it did happen. Join me, as I share my journey and all of the ups and downs it took me on, with you. Oh, and for protection purposes the names of people have been changed. Also, if you're a cop or government entity, this is all entirely fiction so chill.
