Sometimes you don't realize the missed or gained opportunity. The direction your life can take by either your "yes" or "no".
I visited Alex two times, in a month the idea for the book was created.
The animated short film, shows Alex telling Nate, how he helped him write a book. The Book, Nate the Dragon Stops Bullying, stuffed toy, bookmark and soundtrack music will be packaged as a kit and provided to schools across the globe to use in their curriculum.

This idea was inspired by my daughter, when she graduated college and was trying to find her first professional job. The concerns she had like, "not sure she will pick the right job and not sure I know what I want to do yet." A lot of pressure. Since my career has been all over the place, I thought it would be great to tell my story to her through a book and film. So, this is how the film was born. I'm currently trying to find a sponsor.
Since both of us had meetings in five minutes, we had to say goodbye. But, the kind man gave me his card and said, "By the way, I am meeting with Jesse White, the major of Chicago, in five minutes, I am going to introduce him to you and ask that he meet you. You are up to something big."
Wow, amazing where a "Yes" can lead.
