Just Keep Swimming!
Jim Dorey was born and raised in New Jersey, USA. He is the youngest of five siblings in a working-class family. From an early age, the value of hard work was inculcated in him. Moreover, as a product of a public school and state university, Jim was blessed to meet many mentors who introduced him to opportunities that rewarded his optimism, work ethic, and ability to work in a SMART capacity. Eventually, he climbed the ranks to leading a one-billion-dollar business and earning Harvard Business School alumni status along the way. The author is a big proponent of reaching out to and lifting others in any way that he can.

Table of contents
Chapter 1. The beginning
In the first chapter, the author discusses the misconception that everyone comes into this world with a guidebook that helps them make all of the right decisions on their journey to success as if they were following some map. Little did the author know that just about everyone is on a similar trip feeling like the only person in the entire world without a plan. It took him many years to finally realize that it was not just him and that everyone was learning by making the wrong choices and mistakes. They, too, are growing, learning, and building a tool chest. This thought helped Jim develop a more healthy and realistic perspective to embrace the questions and the challenges that would guide him.
