Do you have a plan for life? Think back on your life and how you arrived at where you are today. Did you envision where you wanted to be and then map out a strategy for getting there? Or, have you bounced around like a bumper car from one thing to the next?

The book gives you the opportunity to maximise your true potential at work and at home. Are you ready to build a bridge to the life you want?
