Disadvantaged Young Man Makes a Name for Himself

This story of a young man who triumphs despite many of life’s disadvantages, and grows into a strong leader in the San Antonio community. Eventually working with his mentor, who is one of the leading change agents, is empowering and encouraging.

Lots of history, and examples of his younger years. Hoping to read more about his experiences and triumphs at the next level too.

Congratulations Lorenzo.

A jump start into a new way of thinking

I read this book thinking I was going to learn some business skills I needed and maybe something about tacos, but what I gained was entirely different. Lorenzo has a different perspective on how to grow in life that will ultimately push you forward in business. One thing he teaches is that it's much easier to grow together than it is to try and succeed on our own. We will grow so much faster if we surround ourselves with smart people and learn everything we can from them. He gives life examples and lessons on how working hard, learning as much as possible, and giving back will not only make us successful at work, but better humans.
