John Early worked in the corporate world for over 25 years. From the outside looking in, it seemed as though he had it all: the beautiful family, the magnificent home, the nice cars and great vacations, the fabulous income with the big 401K. He had what most would consider the American Dream. This was John's idea of a dream, and this dream was all about him. Then suddenly, in an instant, like the Apostle Paul on the road to Damascus, John had an encounter with God that transformed his life forever.John takes the reader through that transformation and the total impact it had on not only his life, but on the lives of those around him, especially those closest to him-his wife and children. He lays out the 10 key bits of wisdom that were instrumental in reconciling and rebuilding those broken relationships. His road on this journey is paved with: Knowing your purpose, Character, Attitude, Goals, Teamwork and Trust, Respect, Courage, Regrets, Reconciliation, and Grace. This book shows all of us, no matter our circumstances or how dark our days may seem, that God is brighter still. Let God start to transform your life.
In April of 2011 John created The Shoe Shine Guys. A mobile shoe shine service that started with an idea, one truck, and a handful of clients. They now have three vehicles, a full service cobbler store, and hundreds of clients. The Shoe Shine Guys is adding new clients every month and receive calls at least once a quarter about expanding to other parts of the country. As a financial consultant John had the opportunity to speak in front of groups of 200-250 people on the merits of financial, estate, and tax planning. As a Christian he has been able to share his testimony and life story personally and through his blog that he has been writing for the past several years. He has had several articles written about The Shoe Shine Guys in the local Detroit, Michigan media since 2010.
