In this transformation book, Jim Hasse identifies seven career builders parents can use to help their middle school student with cerebral palsy learn how to leverage disability's competitive edge, a key factor in disability development and career readiness.

Jim, a global career development facilitator (GCDF) who has athetoid cerebral palsy, illustrates each of those seven bits of career advice with a transformational story from his own experiences. For each short story, he defines the issue at hand for learning how to live and work well with cerebral palsy, showing how his parents and others helped him personally resolve the situation, and providing a potential path parents can follow as mentors for their own middle school youngster.

Chris Chappell, a C6-7 Quadriplegic, is a dedicated disability advocate. From peer mentoring, career counseling, life-coaching and legislative crusading, Chris has been on the front lines of SCI (Spinal Cord Injury/Paralysis) advocacy for more than 15 years. In addition to his corporate career as Vice President of Investments at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney in New York City and Graduate Relations Coordinator at Colorado's Craig Hospital, Chris has developed a successful commercial Voiceover and Audiobook narration business (Dublot, LLC). Chris and his family reside in Littleton, Colorado.

Valuable Life Lessons

This book provides inspirational stories from the authors personal experience growing up with cp and successfully navigating the business world as an adult with a disability. His stories and advice to parents of children with disabilities is practical and inspiring. The messages are also totally applicable to all, not only to those with physical disabilities. I appreciated the bullet like summary and restatement of key points at the end.

Jim discovers something new about himself – one story at a time. I felt Chris, the narrator, was just as excited about what he was saying as I was.
