About the Author

John Guarino, a street-smart kid from Queens, New York, and a Boston College graduate, is a former institutional equity trader. John was fortunate to leave his job at The World Trade Center twice, once just before the 1993 garage bombing, and in May 2001 just prior to the 911 terrorist attacks. Several years ago, he moved his young family south for a better lifestyle and to support his parents. John's father Michael was the best man at his wedding. Proudly, John gave back to Michael during his brutal fight with dementia.
