Abuse, discrimination, poverty—these were the major themes of JT McCormick's childhood. As an adult, JT added a new theme to the mix—success. JT McCormick went from the slums of Dayton, Ohio to being the CEO of a multimillion dollar company. Being a single mom myself, the story of JT's mom REALLY hit home. There were many times I needed to put this book down - a lot of painful moments, yet his resilience is what keeps me reading. Very powerful - if you need a "well if he could do it, so can I" kind of read? This is your book!
