It goes without saying that everyone wishes to live a life that matters. But
how do we harness this potential and positively impact the world around us?
In Be Audacious: Inspiring Your Legacy and Living a Life that Matters, author
and motivational speaker Michael W. Leach offers a simple, four-part game
plan for overcoming adversity, living authentically, uncovering purposeful
passion, and developing vision. Leach encourages readers to embrace
nonconformity—to "shed the shackles of societal norms"—in pursuit of
their dreams. Fresh, vulnerable, and contemporary, this call to action speaks
to millennials and any others who aspire to break out of the box on the path
to a purposeful journey uniquely their own.
