Book Review: Dream Big by Bob Goff
One of the most asked questions I get from potential clients generally starts with this theme: I know I have a story and a purpose, but I have no idea what to do with either. And I certainly don’t know how to build a business and make money from a story or purpose. When they say something like this to me, I hear: I’ve got a big dream and a calling on my life. What I don’t have is a plan to tell people who I am, what I do, and why I do it.

My Vanishing Country: A Memoir by Bakari Sellers
Part memoir, part historical and cultural analysis, MY VANISHING COUNTRY is an eye-opening journey through the South's past, present, and future. Bakari Sellers learned early in life that there is a difference between being “southern” and being “country.” “Country” is Denmark, South Carolina. “Country” is Sellers’ father, Cleveland Sellers. “Country” is the forgotten rural Black Belt: once a reference to fertile soil, but now known as the chain of the nation’s most impoverished states. MY VANISHING COUNTRY (Amistad; May 19, 2020; ) is Sellers’ poignant ode to his father, a significant figure of the Civil Rights movement, a roaring ballad to the abandoned rural South, and a moving reflection on fatherhood.
