“I found out I was writing a poetry book at the end of last year and I had all of 45 days to put it together. And I wrote this entire book while I was traveling to Peru to go do an Ayahuasca immersion with some shamans in the middle of the jungle and I’ve never had to work on something so diligently before. Every single day. If I missed one day I would have been off track. I kind of fell into a vortex with this book, this poetry vortex.”

“I’ve worked as a journalist in politics for a number of years and the subject of immigration has always fascinated me, not simply because my family is a family of immigrants but also because of the fundamental questions that the issue of immigration raises: Who are we as a country? Who is an American? What does it mean to be an American? And how have those definitions changed overtime? So when I began this book I wanted to address those central questions through a personal lens and this is the result of that endeavor.”

“Our book is about influence. The question is: What is influence? On a very basic level, influence can be defined as the ability to move a person or persons to a desired action, usually within the context of a specific goal. Now that definition is legitimate and certainly works but I don’t believe it’s the substance of influence, which really is pull.”

“My book is about endurance; specifically, it’s about this emerging sport known “fastest known times,” which are basically trail records on the super long trails like the Appalachian Trail and Pacific Crest Trail. But it also talks about the really amazing people who have set these records, and some of them are my friends and mentors. I wanted to talk about them and then also share my experience as a record setter and illustrate how it was so empowering for me to realize that there is no gender divide when it comes to endurance.”

“I was inspired by my work as a veterinary internal medicine specialist. Although, if I’m honest, when I first started writing this book it was not going to be about my job as a vet. It was going to be about pretty much anything other than that. But once I started writing I realized that there was really only one story I wanted to tell, and that was the story of my patients and the things that they’ve taught me about life, and about medicine, and about being a veterinarian.”

“I wrote this book because, over the years, I saw how my perspectives, although molded and sculpted to warrant success, weren’t really the norm of athletes or most people. It’s a false misnomer that you have to have this angst or chip on your shoulder to succeed as an athlete, and science now supports that positivity and optimism are really the drivers of success.”

“The origin of this book came from a speech that I gave a few years ago about the importance of the first 100 days of the customer relationship. At the time, to be frank, I wasn’t sure whether it was a good idea or not. But I was asked to give a speech at an event where there was a contest, and the audience would vote on their favorite speech, and the winner would win a $10,000 prize that was a donation to the charity of their choice. Well, thankfully, the audience voted for my speech. And in that moment, I knew that there might be some legs under this idea.”
