Nov 03, 2014 /prREACH/ -- New York Times best-selling author Joel Comm has brought together 39 “geniuses” who are passionate about their areas of expertise. “When meeting someone for the first time, names and handshakes are exchanged. Invariably, one person asks, ‘So, What Do You Do?’” said Comm. “The question itself is an invitation to discover the genius that is available all around us -- if we will just listen.”
In her story, Wagner recounts the struggle with stray voltage she faced along with her husband on their dairy farm. Laura's chapter begins with the day they sold their cows and the uncertainty they felt. But one thing led to another and several years later, Laura had earned a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science and was running her own web design business. In her story, Wagner states, "When I look back, there was never a definite plan. I just kept looking for the next door and pursued it to the end." She also observes, "Sometimes learning what you don't want is just as important as learning what you do want." Wagner's advise to anyone considering a change in their life is to "find something you love . . . and seek out ways to learn more."
“Readers will be inspired by 39 stories of regular people who make an impact on the world as they live their personal passion. They will be enlightened and encouraged as they identify the value brought to their lives by the people around them.” Comm said. “From exceptional parenting and exciting adventure travel to growing a thriving business to dealing with issues of personal growth, this book will take you to new places and encourage you to share your genius with the world.”
Like its best-selling predecessor, “Chicken Soup for the Soul", “So What Do You Do?” is packed with stirring and powerful stories. But unlike the former book, readers also will discover real-life tools they can use in their daily personal and business life. Whether their focus is on personal development, growing their business, or managing money, readers will find specific information to help them move forward.
