Start Where You Are: Life Lessons in Getting from Where You Are to WhereYou Want to Be


    Ever since the story of his transformation from homeless, single father to millionaire became known the world over, Chris Gardner - whose life story both inspired the movie "The Pursuit of Happyness" and became a number 1 "New York Times" bestseller by the same name - has been inundated with two questions: 'How did you do it?' and 'How can I do it too?'. Gardner's power-packed, transformational reply is the basis of this long anticipated book. If you've had the rug pulled out from under you, or have been dealing with the loss of a home or a job, a financial crisis, or simply can't find the motivation to pursue new challenges, "Start Where You Are" abounds with life lessons that offer hope and provide a road map for starting anew. Accessible and inspirational, this is also the book for anyone ready to launch a personal or professional undertaking, or break generational cycles that hem in their potential.
