Twenty percent of the proceeds from Step Up and Play Big will go to the Wounded Warrior Project, an organization that embodies the principles contained in the book. When a young man or woman makes the decision to serve, they have taken the ultimate action to "Step Up". Wherever they may serve, regardless of the role they play, they must realize their full capabilities in order to "Play Big". Chris' youngest son demonstrated his willingness to "Step Up and Play Big" when he made the voluntary choice to serve. Visit www.woundedwarriorproject.org.
What does it mean to Step Up and Play Big? It means that you have decided to take action, you are willing to accept the risks associated, and you are ready to work toward your goal. Instead of wishing, hoping and dreaming for a better life, job, house, team, body (you name it), you are prepared to roll up your sleeves.
Step Up and Play Big details how to affect the change you desire in eight clear strategies. Chris "The Coach" Ruisi, draws from his own years in the business world to help readers sharpen their vision of success, unlock their inherent and full capabilities, and develop the behaviors and habits necessary to reach their goals. He also walks readers through the pitfalls and roadblocks that will inevitably arise, because nothing worth doing is ever easy.
The book is available at Amazon.com. A full list of locations can be found at: www.chrisruisi.com and www.stepupandplaybig.com.
