Laurie A. Baum MSW:
Why did you write Blue-Collar Buddha?
To deliver a powerful message to as many people as possible: You can overcome anything and live a life without limits. What qualifies you as an authority on this topic?
My challenges were getting ripped off by unethical bosses, two battles with cancer, childhood abuse, years of Special Education, disappointing relationships and every kind of business problem you could imagine in the company I founded. But I’m here today, happy, healthy, wealthy and excited about life.
How do you help people make better lives for themselves?
I encourage and inspire them to reinvent themselves through ferocious self-honesty, a commitment to lifelong learning, an uncompromising work ethic and assuming full responsibility for every one of their thoughts, words and actions.
What did you learn on your own journey that you’d like to share with others?
My story is proof that you can balance outer success with inner peace and be happier than you ever thought possible. I know without question that if you believe in yourself and believe in your dreams, you will be unstoppable.
