About the author: Adam Mark Smith is simply like you, a human being. He listened to a voice within him to write this book, a book that crystallized the healing process of both an abusive and lovely childhood, his admirable business career, the global public shaming he endured after protesting for gay rights in a less than mindful manner, and what he learned when he finally accepted it all. Adam loves dating his wife of 18 years and playing with his four sons by coaching their Little League teams, learning new tricks on the trampoline, riding bikes, wrestling, and falling off their skateboards. Now currently looking for his next career opportunity, Adam has held various roles in investment banking, accounting, and corporate finance at companies, including Intel, DLJ LA, KPMG, IBM, and of course, Vante. He is a certified life coach, has taught courses at the University of Arizona and Portland State University, and holds an MBA and CPA. Adam inspires others to lead their business and personal lives with authenticity, a heart of service, and courage to question their learned beliefs.
Snip from About the book: Finding balance between work and home, Adam settled into a rewarding life with a job he loved and an expanding family that gave it all meaning . . . until he made the choice to stand up for the rights of someone else. His now infamous protest began with the painful renouncement of many of the religious teachings that once formed his world view yet no longer made sense, and ended with the even more devastating surrender of his sense of safety and security.
As the journey continues, Adam has found that instead of seeking the ever-moving bar of financial success and approval of others, building the great personal wealth that comes from embracing imperfections and living an authentic life is worth any price.
