“Part of what it means to love someone is to care about their story and hurt a little bit when it comes to their challenges.” — Tim Sanders

Raised with the writing of Norman Vincent Peale and Napoleon Hill as part of his informal education, it’s no wonder Tim Sanders overcame a difficult childhood – where he was pushed aside in school due to his lack of focus – to become a best-selling author and technology leader in the early days of the Silicon Valley.
