Lessons From My Grandfather: Wisdom for Success in Business and Life

By Jeanette Perkins aka Beeba

Author: Marc Demetriou

Do you feel in a rut and long to switch gears and follow your dreams? But where to begin? Lessons From My Grandfather will show you the pathway to change and success.

An Ellis Island immigrant, Haralambos Georgiou Pistis – or just Charlie – came to a new country at age 16 with nothing but a bag full of dreams, courage, wit, and the desire to succeed — and he transformed his world. Through his steadfast willingness to work hard, and a determination to control life rather than allowing it to control him, Charlie succeeded on his own terms, finding happiness and financial security.

In these pages, Demetriou tells Charlie’s inspirational story, then applies his lessons to today. Over the years, Demetriou noted fifteen principles his grandfather relied on to guide his daily life.  These lifelong principles provide both clarity and vision for helping you recognize your unique talents, along with allowing you to identify and reach your goals in life and business. As Demetriou likes to call it, “success made simple.”

This book is sprinkled with Charlie-isms and quotes from many contemporary and historical figures who have achieved success. For someone looking for that catalyst to recharge and redirect your life, this may be the book for you.
