Best of all, they’ll show you how you can pivot and profit, too, whether that’s through growing and monetizing Facebook groups, building and monetizing a podcast audience, being a military spouse who raises a strong family even during repeated deployments, creating your own TV channel, or some other approach! In an era where the cycle of ‘strong economy’ to ‘crashed economy,’ whether local or global, seems to be recurring with increasing frequency, discover how you can recession-proof your mindset, your skillset, and your business to write your own Million Dollar Story despite external forces.

And yet he recovered again, building a large team and employing lessons learned in not one but two global events so that he was ready for 2020! But … no more spoilers! You’ll have to read Million Dollar Story so you, too, can pivot successfully and be inspired to profit and WIN with purpose!
Through our lives and journeys as entrepreneurs one thing is certain - very rarely is it a straight and simple path, but the destination is worth the journey. I can not say how thrilled I am to see the growth of this series and the lives that it will touch as a result of these authors being brave enough to not only face adversity but to keep going, leading boldly and being courageous enough to share. And for you, reading these words… oh, what a treat you are in for with each flip of the page! To know you are not alone in all stages of life and business growth and also to realize that you truly are the author of your own story and how it ends is both freeing and powerful. Harness this power for good and to accelerate your own journey. ~ Kaci Brown, Co-Founder of Amplify My Impact
The Game Changer Book Series is a collection of these behind the scene stories. These are stories that most people never consider behind the scenes of a business or successful company. These stories are personal, connected to the authors’ hearts, and many of them are being shared for the first time with you, our reader. While reading this collection, my reaction was to think about this old adage: “Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about! Be kind, always…”
This book reveals some of the hardest times and the darkest moments that entrepreneurs live through. These are real and deeply personal experiences. Many of the chapters are about making bad choices, and overcoming mistakes. All of them share something in common: a turning point. The turning point that changed the author’s life forever. These stories are very dear to each author, and I am honoured to be able to share their experiences with you. I hope that each of these stories touches you the way that they have touched me.
