I’ve gained tremendous perspective on what matters in life and what’s a real problem vs. just a nuisance
Saint Paul, MN (PRWEB) October 01, 2012
Five-star Amazon.com author, Tom Salonek (http://www.TomSalonek.com), is offering a free copy of his book Building a Winning Business in exchange for a donation to his friend's recovery.
Peter Quinn is Tom Salonek's best friend. Something happened a year and a half ago that fundamentally changed Pete's life (and, obviously, the lives of his family). While training for a marathon, Pete was struck by a driver who ran a red light. It left Pete paralyzed. His commitment to walk again is inspiring and, given he was a runner and the Twin Cities Marathon is less than a week away, Salonek wrote The power of Pete that was published in the Star Tribune. As the article explains, Pete was between employers when he was struck, leaving him without a job, without disability insurance, and healthcare insurance limited to the COBRA required time limit.
As thanks for anyone who makes a donation via the Donate button on Pete's video blog, Salonek is offering a free copy of his book Building a Winning Business: 70 Takeaways for Creating a Strong Company during Good and Bad Economic Times. To receive a free copy, email tsalonek(at)intertech(dot)com with your address and PayPal transaction number.
