Mar 13: 1] Will Your Way Back 2] To Pixar and Beyond
There’s adversity, and there’s extreme adversity. Most of us can handle life’s daily ups and downs. But how do you cope when doctors tell you there’s a good chance you’ll never walk again? What goes through your mind? How do you wrap your head around a forever changed life?
Will Your Way Back: How One Man Overcame Tragedy with a Winning Mindset chronicles James H. Osborne’s inspirational 9-year recovery from a road cycling accident, which rendered him quadriplegic. James said he had three choices, give up, accept it or … choose to fight. He chose to fight.
To Pixar and Beyond: My Unlikely Journey with Steve Jobs to Make Entertainment History is the never-before-told story of Pixar’s improbable success.
It’s the story of an animation company that was $50 million in the red, until Steve Jobs called Lawrence Levy one day, and made him the offer of a lifetime.
Working daily with Jobs, Levy became CFO of Pixar and implemented a plan that transformed the Toy Story company into one of Hollywood’s greatest success stories — it made Jobs a billionaire and resulted in a $6 billion sale to Disney. Levy shares his journey and how the ancient Buddhist philosophy, The Middle Way, played into his personal and business success.
