Editorial Reviews


"QUITLESS was a veritable masterclass in how to face adversity with grace and humility! Each author's personal contribution to the larger story of persistence helped inform a truly inspiring narrative about what it takes to get everything you want out of life. Here's a secret: it starts with getting back up!" 
Tamara Nall | President and CEO at the Leading Niche

"A profoundly moving and down-to-earth collection of human trials, tribulations and steadfast determination in the face of adversity! I was hooked from the very first chapter!"
Shawn Johal | Business Growth Coach and author of The Happy Leader

"What happens when you take successful, inspiring and thoughtful leaders from all over the world and ask them to collaborate on one book? QUITLESS happens. An anthology like none I've read before, the sheer authenticity and no-holds-barred approach to storytelling had me hooked immediately. Regardless of where you may be in your professional journey, this book is a must read!"
Rick Orford | Co-Founder and Executive Producer at Travel Addicts Life, and bestselling author of The Financially Independent Millennial

"Somewhere between banging your head against a wall and refusing to see anything but the finish line of the race you began ages ago, lies the subtle art of persistence. Woven across a myriad of sometimes-shocking, sometimes-outrageous stories, QUITLESS is the triumph of the human spirit over any and all obstacles that would stop you from achieving that which you are meant to do."
Sanjay Jaybhay | Bestselling author of Invest and Grow Rich

"Reading QUITLESS was like adopting the drill instructor most of us could benefit from having in our lives - it fired me up and made me remember there's important work to be done, right now, today! No one's going to make your dream come true for you - you've got to have persistence!"
Kristin Cripps | Real Estate Broker and Empowerment Expert, bestselling author of ShePreneur and InvestPreneur

"What amazed me the most about QUITLESS was the incredible diversity of each author presented in the book. All came from different walks of life, different educational backgrounds and different economic circumstances. And yet, regardless of their inherent differences, each tells a powerful narrative about the value of looking adversity in the face and refusing to back down. If this book doesn't motivate you to get out there and get after it, I'm not sure what will."
Tom Fedro | President and CEO, Paragon Software Group Corporation, bestselling author of Next Level Selling

"The idea of "success" has become so ubiquitous in our everyday vernacular, it can sometimes be hard to remember what the word actually stands for. QUITLESS was the crash course in redefining that ideal. A brilliant and uplifting journey through the trials and tribulations of what it means to go after all the things you've ever dreamed of doing."
Sid Mohasseb | Transformational and Motivational Speaker, and bestselling author of You Are Not Them!: The Authentic Entrepreneur's Way

"If you don't believe in destiny, this book will, at the very least, make you believe in persistence! Rather than the tired, proverbial wisdom, "keep your head down and do what needs to be done", QUITLESS approaches the topic in a wholly unique and invigorating way. By presenting such a diverse range of successful individuals from all different backgrounds and walks of life, you're encouraged to remember that all of your power comes from nowhere else but within!"
Mike Putman | Founder, Custom Travel Solutions

"QUITLESS was everything you hope for out of an anthology and more! An amalgamation of successful individuals from all walks of life sharing their highs, their lows and most importantly their truths. It was gratifying to know that just because my journey doesn't resemble the people around me, that does not in any way negate its importance or its potential."
Orad Elkayam | CEO, MoGi Group and President, TransPerfect

"QUITLESS is a beautifully woven tapestry of human experience in which each author brings to the table the unique wisdom, anecdotes and life lessons that have propelled them out of mediocrity and into the fullness of their own actualized potential. Easily one of the most inspiring books I've read this year."
Michael Flory | CEO, Director, and Board Member, MRFH, LLC

"Too often we are all only presented with the highlight reel of flashy CEO's and mogul entrepreneurs. We see the success in all of its glorious trappings, but not the truth of what was sacrificed to get there. In QUITLESS, we are given a backstage pass to the other half of the narrative, the real half. Each author of the anthology bravely puts his/her story on the line, and shows us that to be truly successful it takes a lot more than just a fancy business card - you have to learn how to pick yourself back up, likely more than once!"
Trissa Tismal-Capili | Executive Coach and Speaker, Boss Transformed

"I delighted in reading such fascinating stories of classroom teachers, PhDs, writers, Air Force pilots, and entrepreneurs. Many of the stories in this anthology offer profound take-home value and great insight. Be it that I recognised myself for better or worse in its pages, or found inspiration to try what the authors shared. QUITLESS is a great collection! I was deeply moved by the honesty and integrity of each of the authors willing to share their stories in something as permanent as print. A strong and valuable reminder of the critical importance in remaining receptive to all that life has to offer - the good, the bad and the ugly (for those who remember Sergio Leone's famous movie)."
Andreas Schweitzer | Managing Director, Arjan Capital Ltd
