Bringing a map to show people your journey is almost an essential item. Kid's will love an inflatable globe, but — careful — it will turn into a game of football.

The Book Tour Arrives in Wisconsin

Currently, I am in Wisconsin, my home state. I have been really impressed with the hospitality and friendliness. It’s so refreshing not to be lost in the shuffle. And I’ve discovered that one of the best ways to bring my book to life is by speaking to the local schools. It can be overwhelming at times to be the center of a mad rush of 150 students, but I love to see their eyes sparkle with inspiration.

I shall be here a few months as I try a new strategy of planting some seeds. I have discovered in my traipsing around the country is that a rolling stone gathers no moss, but it also gathers no community either, and I’ve come to believe our greatest resource on the planet is our network of friends.

So, I’d like to extend an invitation to join my adventure even if it is only for a day or only for a mile. See the Book Tour Home Page for more details.

Celebrating the book

Students from Argentina holding their certificates of achievements and their copy of “Cayendo Hacia Arriba” the book that we created together. In my opinion, the celebration of the book is the most important step. It helps the students realize their purpose in life, take a step of action with their passion.
