Author House, Feb 21, 2011 - Biography & Autobiography - 304 pages
Life extracts a price from us-and it is up to us to determine what that price will be. This book relates the true story of a young man who believes he has no future. Therefore, he pays the price for failure. He has no goals, no ambition, no work ethic, and no sense of responsibility. After years of self indulgence and numerous brushes with the law, he is on the verge of completely destroying his life. Then something in him ignites: a spark of hope. The spark becomes a raging fire. He finds himself consumed with a burning desire to excel. He learns to pay the price for success and his life is transformed. The dramatic events that motivated this man to rise to the top of his field will inspire those who feel uninspired and give hope to those who feel hopeless. The mature reader will enjoy a nostalgic visit. The teens and younger adult readers will discover the ingredients for success. All readers will experience a roller coaster of emotions.

About the author (2011)

Joe Hogan was born in the small town of Hamlet, North Carolina. He has experienced over seven decades of remarkable societal changes and has a unique viewpoint of the dramatic differences that occurred in our children from the forties to the nineties. He was the product of a dysfunctional home and took no interest in education or accountability until the overwhelming responsibility of a wife and child forced him to change.


Joe entered the financial services industry and received two degrees from the American College in Bryn Mar, Pa., Chartered Life Underwriter and Chartered Financial Consultant. He enjoyed an extremely successful management career with the New York Life Insurance Company and retired comfortably in 2000 at the age of 58.


Joe has previously published two previous books and now resides in a prestigious private gated community in Florida and enjoys golf, fishing, and spending time with his wife, three children, and grandsons.
