Major life transitions such as leaving the protected environment of school or starting a new career can be daunting. It is scary to face a wall of choices, knowing that no one is going to tell us whether or not we are making the right decision. There is no clearly delineated path or recipe for success. Even figuring out how and where to start can be a challenge. That is, until now. As executive director of the Stanford Technology Ventures Program, Tina Seelig guides her students as they make the difficult transition from the academic environment to the professional world, providing tangible skills and insights that will last a lifetime. Seelig is an entrepreneur, neuroscientist, and popular teacher, and in What I Wish I Knew When I Was 20 she shares with us what she offers her students—provocative stories, inspiring advice, and a big dose of humility and humor. These pages are filled with fascinating examples, from the classroom to the boardroom, of individuals defying expectations, challenging assumptions, and achieving amazing success. Seelig throws out the old rules and provides a new model for reaching our highest potential. We discover how to have a healthy disregard for the impossible, how to recover from failure, and how most problems are remarkable opportunities in disguise. What I Wish I Knew When I Was 20 is a much-needed book for everyone looking to make their mark on the world.

"There are people who put their dreams in a little box and say, 'Yes, I've got dreams, of course I've got dreams.' Then they put the box away and bring it out once in a while to look in it, and yep, they're still there. These are great dreams, but they never even get out of the box. It takes an uncommon amount of guts to put your dreams on the line. That's where courage comes in." Erma Bombeck Although financially independent by the age of 33, T.R. Locke was frustrated. He'd abandoned the Hollywood dreams of his youth in exchange for a comfortable life in suburban Chicago as a college administrator and commercial landlord. So after much soul searching inspired by Oprah Winfrey and Joseph Campbell, Locke decided to sell everything and move his family across the country to finally "follow his bliss" in Hollywood as a screenwriter. With candor, wit, and humor, this book reveals the 23 things he wishes he'd known before he followed that bliss... to bankruptcy. Whether you have dreams of pursuing a career in Hollywood or not, this book will inform and entertain you, challenge your assumptions, and make you laugh out loud. Through the promised protection of anonymity, Locke persuaded a number of successful Hollywood TV stars, movie actors, Grammy-nominated singers, writers, comedians, platinum-selling record producers, TV execs and behind-the-scenes production personnel to speak more openly and honestly than ever before about the hard lessons they learned on their way to making it in Hollywood, and to reveal the secrets that led to their eventual success. The result is invaluable lessons in the power of dreams and persistence gleaned from the combined experiences of more than a dozen successful artists and celebrities. Go inside to learn dozens of facts about Hollywood that will surprise you including: - Why Hollywood makes the same movies over and over again. - What you don't know about how contestants on "American Idol," "Survivor" and other shows are chosen. - Why certain people become stars and others don't regardless of talent. - Why top actors get paid millions per film even if the film stinks. - What one TV superstar says is the secret to making it as an actor in Hollywood, New York or anywhere. - What one Grammy-nominated singer says is necessary to succeed in the music industry. - What one multi-platinum rap producer says, had he known sooner, could have earned him millions of dollars more. - Secrets to getting an agent. - What writers should never tell any producer. - How to handle criticism and rejection. - What one thing never to say to the president of any production company. - When moving to Hollywood is not a good idea. - And many more... T.R. Locke is a screenwriter, author and humorist. He lives in Burbank, CA with his wife Lisa, his daughter Aja, and their dog Lala. His screenplays include: "Prophets and Kings," "Lunar Options," "Oprah Winfrey Hates My Guts," "The Exorcist's Apprentice," "Elijah - The Original Superhero," and "Poker Night."

www.friendsofwoahteeforliberia.org My book will be used by the Educational Systems (especially predominately black institutions) in the U.S.A, Liberia and the World to educate generations yet unborn about the U.S./Liberia relationship, How Liberia was founded and why. The book will also educate the readers about the causes of the Civil Conflicts that have torn the country to pieces and destroyed hundreds of thousands of lives and properties. Students of history in black institutions of the U.S. will dismiss the concept that the continent of Africa is a country and that there is no such thing as wild animals sharing the same homes with Africans. Americans will gain an awareness of Liberia. This book could bring a more closer tide between the citizens of the U.S. and Liberia. Through this, the establishment of city to city and institutions to institutions partnerships could come about easily along with student exchange programming.
