Every month we feature a title we think really shines. This month’s featured title is Owning the Dash by Anthony C. Delauney, releasing April 2, 2019!
Why We Love It
April is Financial Literacy month, and Owning the Dash is full of information and best practices that will set your family’s feet on the path to financial fitness. It’s also a book with heart: Anthony’s goal is to provide families with strong financial resources, giving them the best possible opportunities for success and happiness. But what really sets this book apart is its unique, heartfelt inspiration. Anthony tells it best himself.
From the Author
On January 17, 2015, my cousin, Greg Plitt, passed away. Greg and I grew up together, and he was like an older brother to me. His parents are my godparents. Greg discovered early that in order to find happiness, he needed to take ownership of his life and find value in himself. From this knowledge, he built a fitness empire that changed the lives of thousands for the better.
When Greg passed, his videographer and close friend Mark created a tribute video highlighting several of Greg’s most valuable life lessons. The first time I saw the video, which can be found below, I knew that my own life moving forward would be forever changed. I’m still learning from my cousin and am grateful for every life lesson that he shared. His legacy lives on in Owning the Dash and the thousands that he inspired.
When writing Owning the Dash, I had many ideas about topics that could go into the book. Each time I watched my cousin’s videos on life and fitness philosophies, I discovered more comparisons between fitness and finance. In essence, both require a growth mindset and clear goals. On a drive to the gym one morning, the title and foundation for the book became abundantly clear. Greg’s app started to play the soundtrack from his “Sweat Equity” video. Owning the Dash was born.
