The Traveling Shoes by Wayne Elsey

The Traveling Shoes

I've written a lot in my years as an entrepreneur. However, this is the book I'm most proud of writing..

Global business leader and philanthropist, Wayne Elsey, announced the publication of his latest book, The Traveling Shoes, which was illustrated by Jerry Rosembert Moise. Unlike his previous books, which dealt with leadership, business, and self-development, this book was written for children.

Elsey is the world’s leading social entrepreneur helping organizations raise money through shoe drive fundraisers. These fundraisers also keep footwear out of the trash and provide inventory to more than 4,000 micro-entrepreneurs in developing nations seeking work opportunities to help themselves out of poverty. The book was written from the point of view of his six-year-old granddaughter, Aubree. As his oldest grandchild, the story tells of Aubree's experience, as well as that of her brothers, Aiden and Jaxon, and their family making a social impact with shoes.

Upon the book publication, Elsey said, "I've written a lot in my years as an entrepreneur. However, this is the book I'm most proud of writing, because it explains how we can each make a positive difference in the world—including children. You're never too young or too old not to help someone else. Since my family is my priority, aside from my businesses, I'm also happy to have the opportunity to create a legacy for my grandchildren that I hope they will treasure someday in the future when they have grown."

This book is available at Amazon.
