Men in our culture are socialized to connect money and self-worth, and Dave Blanchard was no different. He WAS his Ferrari, his Rolex, his ski lodge. But what happens if you lose it all? Who are you then?
How do you build your worth back, find purpose in the suffering and heal your soul? How do you get connected to a power greater than you and meet your true, magnificent self?
Dave is the CEO of The Og Mandino Group, a company dedicated to helping individuals and organizations apply positive thought processes for success and higher achievement in business and relationships. He is also the bestselling author of many books, including Today I Begin a New Life, and the creator of the Habit Finder profile, a proprietary application that measures a person’s habits of thinking.
