Motivated by inspirational "seeds of knowledge" implanted in him by his Mother, a single Black woman, Eric Otis Simmons went on to accomplish some amazing things in life - despite seemingly impossible odds. In his Memoir, the Author takes the reader through his genealogy research to learn more about himself, to when his Mom was assaulted at gunpoint, to walking on and making Auburn University's basketball team at 5'7," 147 pounds, to the time he closed a $25 million sale in Hong Kong and more. In between, he masterfully ties together what his Mother taught him and shares how he turned those valuable lessons into successful stints in his various Corporate America Sales/Sales Management roles with Fortune 500 employers AT&T, GE, IBM, and MCI.
