Keys to a living faith that offers peace in the face of

Jim Patton thought he was dreaming big. His first life-long financial goal was to make $20 an hour. But latent business savvy, his Wall Street Journal education, and God's plan for his career intervened, and now he makes more than that every minute.
He learned mostly the hard waygetting fired from his first job, losing everything in a major acquisition, and watching a partner walk away with profits that should have been his.
Jim Patton is founder and senior managing partner of KPAC Solutions, a private equity firm that acquires distressed manufacturers and turns them into profitable manufacturing powerhouses. Many have been ailing subsidiaries of Fortune-1000 firms that, in the hands of Jim and his team, become world leaders in their industries.
Jim is an experienced negotiator, senior investor and founder of many acquisitions involving distressed manufacturers, distributors and construction companies on a global scale. Negotiations have involved comprehensive acquisition agreements, including long-term post-closing production agreements.
Turning around distressed companies is not only Jim's profession, but it's also a metaphor for his life.
His book, Life in the Turn Lane, tells his remarkable story and what he has learned from the turns. I have about 25 copies of Life in the Turn Lane for ITEX. They retail on Amazon for $24.99 would like to make it $25 even. It is a hardback book. The shipping is $4.90 per book via US post office Priority Mail. If they have a UPS number, then no shipping. I read the book and it is great. The author is a Believer.
