At one point in his own life, author and speaker Andy Andrews needed some motivation for himself. But now, he’s been requested to speak by four different presidents and has written a book explaining how to find success within yourself.

His latest book, “Mastering the Seven Decisions that Determine Personal Success,” is a step-by-step instruction manual on how to be a better person. Andrews knows from experience the hard work it takes to master that feat in life.

For Andrew, it was a long way to success. At 19, his mother died from cancer and a car crash took his father away — leading Andrew to drop out of college and become homeless.

He talks with Growing Bolder about how a library card helped transform his life for the better.
