Publisher's Summary

Through the Fires is a triumphant comeback story in life and business. Robert Carr reflects on decades of struggle that took him to the brink of financial ruin at age 50. Carr would later make a fortune in the card payments industry only to lose almost everything in 2009 after one of the most devastating data breaches ever. Carr's story is a vulnerable and honest depiction of holding on and staying true to the values that in the end became pillars that supported the turbulent times and allowed him to break through more than once to thrive in both business and life. This is a message of hope for aspiring young people just starting out in a career, the seasoned professional, and everything in between.

Listeners will cheer out loud for the way Carr shapes culture and fosters employee respect, incentive, and growth and how that impacts motivation, productivity, and, most importantly, loyalty!

    Story
    "Living Through Life Challenges"

    This Book is an awesome testament of having Values that are principle-centered and living by those values, no matter what. It is about given back no matter what your challenges are in life because someone can always use an hand up (not a hand-out). This books will inspire you to continue to pursue your dreams no matter your age.

    Story
    "A refreshing view of the rule values plays in business"

    I truly enjoyed this wonderful, sober story of how one man can make such a big impact.

    I specially enjoyed the personal stories of struggle that bring to life the man behind the businessman.

    In today's environment, when headline news are filled with leaders who have fallen from their position as a result of making decisions that are not aligned with their espoused values, it is refreshing to see that there are still leaders who live by their values, permeate those values through their organization, create sustainable results, and make a difference in this world.

    Thank you for this wonderful gift.
