Look what I received!!!!! Go buy Ryan Blair’s book, Rock Bottom to Rock Star!  A must read!   The Excuse Department is Closed! #rb2rsimg_1984

The term ‘rock star’ is no longer exclusive to someone on stage holding a mic.  A rock star can be anyone who embodies the qualities of success, and lives a life that lets them own their own stage. You can be a rock star CEO, employee or mom, and shine in whatever field you choose to pursue – no matter where you came from, or how many ‘rock bottom’ moments you’ve experienced along the way.

Ryan Blair has battled extreme obstacles: life as a former gang member, balancing a demanding career with single parenthood, building and selling multiple companies, and making and losing tens of millions of dollars (sometimes all in one day). He’s had a lot of success… and plenty of rock bottom moments.

Rock Bottom to Rock Star is about learning to take those moments at the bottom, when you’re beaten down, exhausted, embarrassed, and cornered, and using them to propel yourself forward. Much of his advice is counter-intuitive, and definitely NOT what you’d learn in business school.

You never have to be a millionaire to be a rock star; you never have to quit your job. You can start wherever you are, in whatever industry or position you’ve already chosen. But you have to start NOW. This book will show you how.
