About the Author

After graduating from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a master's degree in education, Garry Fitchett abruptly chose not to enter the teaching profession. Instead he followed his heart and became a business executive and eventually co-owned a business development company. Despite his business success, he longed to find deeply meaningful work that would allow him to display his authentic self. In the spring of 2012, he sold his business and embarked on a three-year intellectual journey to answer the riddle of how one goes about finding his or her authentic work. Life is a Bicycle: If You Stop Pedaling You'll Fall Off is the culmination of that philosophic journey, revealing the efforts of his research and self-reflection.
