I dedicate this book to three important people in my life who serve as my inspiration:
To my wife, Debra. There is no other human being on the planet who demonstrates more of a zest for life and an uncanny knack to connect with people; she inspires me to believe in possibilities by always asking the simple question, “Why not?”
To my daughter, Alex. Although Alex is not a product manager or a corporate leader, she inspires me because she is passionate, creative, determined, and undeterred by adversity.
To my mom. When I was 17, she sat with me and inspired me to be a better writer, especially when I had to dissect A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man; and she’s still a brilliant editor, beyond what she may even acknowledge herself.
