2019 Year-in-Review

Desire, Discipline and Determination Hits the Amazon Best-Seller List

In April 2019, I co-authored "Desire, Discipline and Determination: Lessons from Bold Thought Leaders."  

Packed with powerful stories of how desire, discipline and determination can impact your life, career, business, finances, etc., this book became the platform for me to share my triumph over tragedy and how I went from poverty and 'prison' to becoming an entrepreneur, investor and savings passionista. 

The stories in this compilation project are so compelling that the book hit Amazon's best-seller list, in multiple categories, in one weekend. 

Also check out opportunities to have "Desire, Discipline and Determination" as a giveaway at your next conference or event. Contact us (via our contact form) and inquire about bulk orders. Buy in bulk and save!


Saving Solutions Generates Buzz for the Book and the Biz

Saving Solutions secured several opportunities to generate buzz for the book, as well as the business in 2019. 

This year I was interviewed on two podcasts: DC Radio's "Champagne and Credit with Muriel Garr" and "Power Station," a podcast within the Podcast Village family. I served as a speaker at two small business events hosted by PMC Studios in Washington, DC.  I also delivered a transformational keynote address at the 4th Annual Xccelerate Business Conference, one that left audiences touched, moved and inspired.  

Listen to my Power Station interview.
