Do the Best You Can't!
“This book should be a guiding light for any person seeking success in their career or any other part of their life. It’s about abundant optimism and how one can do more than they ever expected!” Guy Millner, Co-Founder, AssuranceAmerica Corporation, and Founder and CEO of Norrell Corporation who led its growth from zero to a $1.4 billion New York Stock Exchange Company.
“Bud Stumbaugh and I met 47 years ago right after both of us were elected to the state senate. His zest for life and excellence was obvious back then. This book shows his zest hasn’t dissipated over the years. Bud knows how to get things done. Read his book and you will too.”
Roy Barnes, 80th Governor of Georgia and recipient of the Profile In Courage Award in 2003 by the John F. Kennedy Library.
“Bud, your book is excellent! Really good! I've known for a long time that you are a good talker--dynamic, persuasive, energetic, thoughtful and skillful as a speaker--your book proves you are a good writer as well!” Dr. Billy D. Hilyer, Chancellor, Faulkner University
“Read this book and you will be blessed like me and thousands of others who have been inspired by Bud Stumbaugh. If you desire a life of great significance, Bud’s book will convince you it’s possible and will show you the steps to take to achieve it.” Dr. Mike Williams, President, Harding University.
“Read Bud’s book to learn how my career took me from Customer Service Rep to a Regional Sales Manager with salespeople in multiple states reporting to me. How did I, at the same time, celebrate life-changing victories as a wife and mother? As an associate in the company where Bud taught in classes and by example what is written in his book, I practiced his plan. That helped me achieve—at work and at home-- more than I once thought was possible.” Dalmirys Gonzalez, Regional Sales Manager, AssuranceAmerica.
“Bud Stumbaugh’s book is filled with examples of perseverance and finding pathways to success after, at times, multiple failures. His ever-present reminder to create a mindset to tackle challenges head on—even those we can’t accomplish—is valuable and motivational information.” Dr. Bonita Jacobs, President, University of North Georgia.
“Parents give this book to your teenagers! Don’t make them wait until their 20’s or 30’s to learn how to live a more meaningful life and excel beyond expectations. As I did, they’ll find Bud’s insights to be inspiring, entertaining and valuable as they take their next steps in life.” James Chalmers, 18-year-old Eagle Scout and Freshman Provost Scholar at Mississippi State University.
