A book about career and personal "do-overs"
In 2008 I lost everything: my career, my health, and my peace of mind. I was the CEO of a multi-million dollar organization when, in less than twelve months I was forced into retirement, suffered a shattered femur and several weeks later, a pulmonary embolism. My professional "fall" was chronicled on the front pages of local and regional newspapers--the details stored permanently on the Internet. The "coconuts" of a 24-hour news cycle, Google, indie bloggers, and zealot reporters is something every business person in a leadership role may face at some point in their career. This book is about how to avoid that moment or be prepared for it, and how to recover "if and when" it happens. Dodging Coconuts: How to Survive the Storm and Rebuild Your Life examines my process through this "coconut storm." I believe sharing my story will help others learn from my mistakes and live better, more balanced lives
