    Jan 24, 2019

    If you think cruising down the highway on a custom chopper is the ultimate thrill ride, try running your own business. The same outlaw spirit that drives some people to strap on a helmet and hit the road drives other people to risk it all and build a business from the ground up. Bikers and entrepreneurs share at least one trait. They do it their way without compromise. That’s the opening liner note of a book entitled The Ride Of A Lifetime, written by Paul Teutul Sr. Paul is the founder of Orange County Choppers, one of the world's premier builders of custom motorcycles. He formerly ran a family-owned steel fabrication shop before he began building custom bikes as a hobby, eventually founding Orange County Choppers in 1999. Since 2002, he, his family, and his business have been the subject of the hit TLC reality TV show American Chopper.

In a new book, Shaking The Globe: Courageous Decision Making In A Changing World, Blythe McGarvie guides readers on how to absorb the world’s diversity and to build upon his or her global citizenship by using the “FISO Factor:” skills to transform themselves from a conventional leader into a courageous one.AMA_Edgewise_0919.mp3
