In The Leader within Us, business leader and experienced mentor Warren Rustand finally puts in writing the basic principles of what he calls a life by design— that is, a life that, through deliberate choice and hard work, reflects the vision and aspirations of the person living it. These are the same principles that Rustand has enacted in his own life and has taught to many other adults who have come to him for guidance. You will find his story, and some of their stories, in this book.
No matter where you begin, no matter your age or ability or circumstances, there is always the possibility for growth, for redemption, and for success. This book is a blueprint for making significant changes, setting and achieving your goals, and living a life you can be proud of. It will help you be the person you want to be, starting today.
