Scratch N' Sniff Resumes and Other Dangers of Thinking Outside the Box is a nonfiction collection of stories of my adventures in business, leadership, homelessness, art, pain, and faith.
From experiences with terrible bosses and how to deal with them without becoming one, to the bizarre and humorous events that includes the infamous Swear Shirts incident.
It also features:
· My recommendation on which art I want you to take down off the walls of your home and office and throw out—all of them.
· My years of working with homeless philosophers.
· Dealing with horrific pain in the chapter about living with the angel of death, which includes the one item every man will ask, "where can I get one of those for my wife?"
· Finally, my guaranteed way to supersize your faith in only ten steps with an unconventional new look at one of the most familiar sets of guidelines known to mankind.
My multifaceted life experiences in a unique, insightful, humorous, and touching book that will make you laugh and cry and think.
