The road to Success (in any endeavor) need not be a lonely or isolated one.
This new book offers a unique system of support which combines the practices of barter, sharing and mentoring.
"A Swift Kick in the Can'ts" is a 21st Century version of age-old customs and practices.
Peer-Mentoring is a powerful method for achieving Success in a focused, targeted and accelerated way, by providing support via a "Success Buddy" system, which anyone can create either in person, by phone, Skype or email.
Beginning with clearly defined goals, two individuals with complementary skills and resources form a mutual "support for success" contract to achieve real results in any category of Life (Career, Health, Personal)
The book describes the historical and anthropological foundation for these idea and practices, beginning with the reciprocity customs of various tribes and clans (in a chapter contributed by anthropologist, Dr. Gabriella Djerrahian); the custom and history of barter and the Zeitgeist of the current "Sharing Economy".

Your honest review is appreciated!
The practical "how-to" sections include a detailed section on Goals – how to identify and overcome resistance to setting goals, and how to set meaningful, specific goals in all categories of Life. (Career, Health, Personal)
Having set goals, the next steps are to identify what Skills and Resources are required. Here is where the heart of the book - the section on Peer Mentoring comes in.
