Lessons for Success, Quotes to Inspire Your Personal Best
edited by Lorraine A. Darconte

I am currently a proud member of Leadership Grand Strand Class XXXI. Leadership Grand Strand is a program sponsored by the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce to develop a corps of informed, committed, and qualified individuals capable of providing dynamic leadership for the Grand Strand area. The nine month program accepts 30 participants each year and meets monthly to work on team projects.

Our current class facilitator and fellow gsSCENE Steering Committee member, Eileen Soisson, was kind enough to put together a suggested reading list for us. While walking around Barnes & Noble and I realized how much time and effort would need to go into this program. I decided right then that I needed a daily motivator to keep me inspired and excited about my new endeavor. I came across this book, Lessons for Success, Quotes to Inspire Your Personal Best.

For those of you who know me, I am the Quote Queen. I believe that a good quote can be a one-sentence pep-talk and I often write down in a note book interesting things I hear from my friends, family and co-workers. This little book is perfect for someone like me who enjoys other’s points of view and learning on a daily basis. And hey, who can’t appreciate a little encouragement every once in a while? As Abraham Lincoln once said, “The things I want to know are in books,” so start reading!
