Publisher's summary

He spent over three decades proudly serving his country. But his greatest lessons came from one unique bond. For Dr. Burl Randolph, Jr., leadership began at home as a young boy. Though his father was a man of few words, he was molded by his parents' actions for a future filled with achievement. And when the decorated military officer faced his own retirement, he recalled the profound message his dad imparted many years before: "A man ought to always stay busy." Far more than a tribute to an instrumental figure in his life, Dr. Randolph offers a powerful narrative illustrating the mentoring influence a strong parent can have on a child's development.

Becoming a well-credentialed leadership expert in his own right, Dr. Randolph defended his country for nearly 32 years in the US Army, retiring as a colonel after three combat tours in Iraq. In this unique memoir and account of life-lessons-learned, you will discover:

  • Ways simple yet meaningful relationships can impart long-lasting wisdom
  • The value of being inspired to lead others
  • The potential impact of an influential mentor on generating respect, patience, and loyalty
  • Why knowing yourself is your greatest asset
  • How pursuing your passion will go far beyond a career to leave a legacy, and much, much more!

Inspired, Not Retired is an extraordinary homage to a bond like no other. If you like true-life stories of courage and resilience, learning how mentorship can help with pivotal transitions, and deeply felt love and honor, then you will be moved by Dr. Burl Randolph, Jr's astonishing biography. Buy Inspired, Not Retired to explore a man's deepest strength today!

Critic reviews

“The audio version lends emphasis and quiet power to Dr. Randolph's story, making Inspired, Not Retired a top recommendation. Motivational listeners who look for listening that enlightens, pushes, and admits readers into the wellsprings of the author's own life influences will find Inspired, Not Retired a compelling lesson in contrasts between leadership assets and becoming a role model in a child's life. While it might initially be chosen by those looking to retire, Inspired, Not Retired is not so much about how to relax, as how to become an effective leader and mentor in life.” (D. Donovan, Sr. Reviewer, Midwest Book Review)
