About the Book

“It Starts at the Dinner Table,” is a self help book to help 11-25 year olds to set goals and plan out their life, so that they can be successful. To often, young people drift along in life and lose too many valuable years wherein they could be productive. We fall into the 40/40/40 rule of life. What happens is our parents encourage us to get a good education in order to get a good paying job. It goes like this. We get serious about life at age 25 and work 40 hours a week for 40 years; and then retire on about 40% of our income from Social Security, and any monies that we have saved from our retirement plans. This book teaches you to get ahead of the curve by showing you how to set attainable goals. Studies show that people that write down their goals reach their goals three times more often than people who don’t write down their goals. It Starts at the Dinner Table is knowledge shared by five generations of Haleys. It will help you practice simple habits over time that will help you not only be successful, but discover your destiny to impact the world!
