People Who Inspire - Book Cover with TimEveryone has a story – our neighbors, friends, and the strangers we pass by. If we just take a moment to have a conversation, we can be inspired.

That’s the idea behind the “People Who Inspire” series at I’m pleased to announce that a collection of these stories has become a book!

Drawing a circle on southwestern Pennsylvania, I set out to find the stories of ordinary people who are living extraordinary lives. The 27 people you’ll meet in this book all have ties to a 50 mile radius of Pittsburgh, PA. Some were born and raised in Connellsville while others reside nearby.

From eight year old Emily Ruggieri who honors her deceased father by collecting Girl Scout cookies to brighten the lives of patients and their families at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh to 101 Eunice Arthur who simply lives to be happy – each one offers hope and inspiration.

Their lives are intertwined by geography, but their stories capture the unique challenges and triumphs people everywhere face each day. It is the choices they have made that will inspire you to live a life filled with passion and purpose.

“People Who Inspire” can be found online at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Wherever you are, take a moment to have a conversation with someone today. See the good and be inspired!
