Book Review:

How is leadership manifested? In this memoir and motivational book, Dr. Calloway outlines a program for aspiring leaders that answers this question. For those looking to improve and develop skills and step up the leadership ladder the strength of this book supports the notion that regardless of the circumstances of early life, in Dr. Calloways case poverty, anyone with the right drive and commitment can rise above difficulties and be all that they can be. I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone!

~ Pacific Book Review

From Poverty to Corporate Executive is an outstanding book that combines real life experience with classical, business, and technical theories. This book is synonymous with a great motivation story which inspires the reader it is clear that family, friends and the entire community are great sources of support in achieving ones purpose in life. [This book] was written for people in learning institutions and the working class. The book addresses why the mind behaves in a particular way during hard times and how one should utilize his or her brain to make a difference in future. The books main point is for one to take charge of life, finding people and opportunities that support their talents and dreams.

~Hollywood Book Reviews

The wise counsel offered by Jesse Calloway throughout [this book] should provide a solid platform for achieving success and becoming a leader. The first section of his book is autobiographical and candidly shares memories from his precarious childhood, including living in poverty with five siblings, the death of a parent, and a home life under the care of an aunt and uncle who had six children of their own. Rather than overwhelming or defeating Calloway, however, these challenges steeled him One of the most useful chapters, Lessons Learned and Lessons Shared, is a potpourri of topics, including mentors, bosses, peers, customers, collaboration, feedback, first impressions, second chances, and telling the truth [it] reads very much as if Calloway is providing one-on-one coaching to the reader.
