Sometimes it's nice to hear what you may have already read. I enjoyed directing the Inspired, Not Retired Audiobook because it required me to read along as I listened to the narrator, Jerome Ware, and it brought my story to life even more. Below are samples from Apple Books, Audible, and a self-produced versions.

“The audio version lends emphasis and quiet power to Dr. Randolph's story, making Inspired, Not Retired a top recommendation. Motivational listeners who look for listening that enlightens, pushes, and admits readers into the wellsprings of the author's own life influences will find Inspired, Not Retired a compelling lesson in contrasts between leadership assets and becoming a role model in a child's life. While it might initially be chosen by those looking to retire, Inspired, Not Retired is not so much about how to relax, as how to become an effective leader and mentor in life.”

This is a poignant narrative from narrator Jerome Ware on why Inspired, Not Retired was important to him, and why he narrated it. It was a great honor to work with him and this is a great piece.
How Do You Fight Back? Some significant events do not adhere to thinking through the fight, flight, freeze, and fawn stress responses, as you immediately know that you must fight back. That one-year period in my life was one of those times. #fearlessness #fightback #cancer #fightingback #selfesteem #standingup
