I connected with Micki on Linkedin and learned that she does book reviews for books that attract her attention. Here is the one she did and posted on Amazon for my first book “CONNECTING PEACE, PURPOSE & PROSPERITY”
Thank Micki great to have a review from a very experienced book reviewer and author herself!

Connecting Peace, Purpose & Prosperity
By Rob Severson
Rob Severson writes a survival guide and memoir for his own family; one which the population at large can benefit from as well. Based, in part, on his own experiences, the author shows how others can benefit from them. According to him, it’s all about “fundamentals,” or “world-view.” Severson sites Tiger Wood’s ability to focus on the ” fundamentals” of the game of golf as an example of how others can ” follow through” (as in the golf swing) to ensure peace, purpose and prosperity in their own lives. And through this process, using coping skills to find inner peace, giving God control and accepting/extending forgiveness, our lives can reach the fulfillment that most desire.
Using his own life successes and failures to make his point, Severson states that in order to form relationships mutually beneficial to all parties, it’s essential to put ” God first, others second, and finally yourself . . . Which will instill purpose in people in all areas of their lives. This leads to finding ways to survive in life–” take no more than you need,” without depending upon government handouts — yet make enough to support your family and give to others.
This book is an interesting read as the author relates the story to his own children and readers will find a connection with the family, spiced with gentle humor and laugh out loud deprecation of his own trials in life. By sharing his own lifetime experiences he helps others to learn from both his mistakes and achievements.
As in all areas of marketing, selling yourself is essential to selling anything else. Severson discovers this through his life journey and gives pointers on accomplishing individual goals; which goes hand-in-hand with “purpose.” His conclusion sums up what all people strive for most — happiness. This short handbook for success by Rob Severson, is a book to be kept, read, and re-read as a simple concise recipe for both financial success and personal fulfillment.
