Passion comes from inside. Stoke it.
Setbacks happen. Find your way around, over, and through them.
Be willing to receive, then give back. Pay it forward.
Many young people--perhaps four out of five or more--are dissatisfied with their jobs. Why bother to pursue a dream?
It's up to you to create your custom-tailored career and define success your way. How? Combine your burning passion with drive, determination, strategy, and commitment to pay it forward; and find and nurture mentor support, stay steady on your path, and see the fireworks. Success on Your Own Terms will show you exactly how to do it.
Living parallel lives as a business executive, Christian hip-hop media owner, and author, James Rosseau has merged the streams of his three passions to make a difference in his own life and the lives of countless others.
Learning to make and keep six promises during his diverse career, Rosseau now shows young people how to develop a plan for themselves.
These stories, lessons, setbacks, and triumphs--from the neighborhoods of North Philadelphia to executive leadership--reveal new possibilities in an inspiring blend of smart strategy, hard work, and willingness to connect to help others.
