Presidential award-winning speaker Dr Calvin Mackie offers a virtual BlackberryTM of lessons that will inspire and direct your life to greatness. Through a slideshow of poignant vignettes and laugh-at-loud anecdotes, Dr Mackie highlights the practical wisdom of his father, Willie Mackie Sr -- the uneducated sharecropper's son who built a thriving roofing business of 100 employees with a truck, a ladder, and a whole lot of attitude. From the hot gable rooftops of New Orleans to the set of a Spike Lee film, this book explores the extraordinary journey of the Mackie men and leaves you with a view you'll remember forever! A View from the Roof puts you right in Willie Sr's classroom on the roof, and teaches you how to: Master your craft, dominate your industry, and have more control over your financial fate; Transform your work into something that is meaningful without leaving your current job; Bring excellence to everything you do and develop an impeccable reputation for service in the marketplace; Find the mentor who will nurture your growth and help you make the right connections; Become a source of inspiration, love, and intellectual nourishment for your children; Conquer the fear of criticism and acquire the courage to take on new challenges; Be 100% prepared for disaster if and when the time comes.
