    Hi Jonathan.
    Rick Shaver has shared enough with me that I am quite excited to meet you tomorrow.
    I am an ad guy who somehow became President of a wealth management company.
    I quit my job in December to write and shoot my first motivational book.
    It’s called Take Your Seat.
    It’s a motivational book intended to get people to stop saying, ‘One day I’m going to…’
    to ‘This day I will…’
    I have taken a Director’s chair as a symbol of directing your life.
    That chair has travelled with me to some incredible locations that you no doubt have been to as well.
    Each chapter will have about 2000 words and six feature photographs to accompany the story.
    I look forward to meeting you and sharing some of my own stories with you.
    See you tomorrow.
