Home Grown Legacy: Life, Ladders and Learnings in the World of Home Improvement is live on Amazon! Today marks the official launch of the book, a project that began way back in December 2017. That’s when a mutual friend introduced me to Erik on LinkedIn, where he published a post asking for recommendations for ghostwriters.
When we first talked, Erik informed me he’d reached out to a few qualified ghostwriters because wanted to take his time making such an important decision. I appreciated his process and his honesty. Ghostwriting is a collaboration that requires good synergy, commitment, dedication, organization and time. Both parties must make a concentrated effort to produce the highest quality book possible.
I still remember how excited I was when he called to tell me I had the job. From our first conversation, I could sense his passion for the project. By the way he went about selecting his ghostwriter, I knew he would be organized and methodical (which he was). I also knew this collaboration would be an education for me about the world of retail, home improvement, management, leadership, humility, and resilience.
My work gives me an opportunity to read and write countless books on a variety of topics. It fulfills my own passion for learning new things and engaging in constant, never-ending improvement. In this regard, Home Grown Legacy: Life, Ladders and Learnings in the World of Home Improvement is one of my favorite projects to date. I learned, laughed, and gained a renewed appreciation for risk-taskers like Bernie Marcus and Arthur Blank; hard-working retail employees, competent and compassionate leadership, the ability to overcome adversity, and steadfast commitment to community service.
