BOOK BASED ON THE LIFE OF...
George DeMartino, podcaster and now author, will be the first to tell you about his two accomplished boys, shortly followed by a brief anecdote about always pushing himself and others to achieve their dreams. It’s a sort of mantra for George, that you can achieve your dreams if you just believe in what you’re doing and push to accomplish your goals no matter the obstacles.
This is the passion he instilled in his two sons and all those that surround him. All of this has led him to the publication of this book where sharing his stories and those of others will hopefully serve to motivate and inspire you to Dream, Believe on your path to following your dreams.

Your support will help to inspire children to achieve their dreams. 98% of adults never achieve a dream or goal they have in their lifetime. My hope is that by sharing this book with their children.
