If you could meet yourself, come face-to-face with the person you truly are, would you want to? This is the question Samuel L. Jones asks himself in "The Man I Never Knew: How Leadership Can Be Developed by Faith, Family, and Friends." A native of the Mississippi Delta and former college athlete, Dr. Jones earned a bachelor's and master's degree from the University of Southern Mississippi and earned a PhD from Mississippi State University. He eventually became the dean of student affairs at Jones County Junior College. However, he realizes all too well that his life could have taken a different path, one of failure and hopelessness. In exploring the influences and opportunities that prepared him for a position of leadership, Dr. Jones inspires us to examine our own experiences and discover the leadership skills that are hidden within each of us. About the Author Samuel L. Jones received his doctorate in community college leadership from Mississippi State University in 2006. He also has a bachelor's degree in advertising (1997) and a master's degree in public relations (2002) from the University of Southern Mississippi.

He served as the assistant basketball coach from 1999 to 2003, student recruiter from 1999 to 2006, and assistant dean from 2003 to 2006. Having spent ten years developing his leadership skills in athletics and the administration forum, he is committed to being a trailblazer in the lives of his students and his community.

Using Just Be it as linguistic facilitator to the unified experience aims to assist others in the practice of increased awareness and gratitude for the opportunity to participate without harm.

Sharing authentic personal stories and profound life lessons, Kristen Moeller explores our pervasive human tendency to wait for life and to look outside ourselves for answers. What are you waiting for? Do you find yourself waiting for the right moment? The ideal relationship? The perfect job? Are you waiting for your “real” life to begin? Do think that the gifts of life are right around the corner? That one day you will arrive and everything will be okay? Do you endlessly search, yet never seem to find? Through the sharing of authentic personal stories and profound life lessons, Kristen Moeller explores our pervasive human tendency to wait for life and to look outside ourselves for answers. Too often we are “waiting for Jack”—whatever or whoever “Jack” is. So we don’t try; we give up. We sell out and we forget who we are. We are afraid to succeed, afraid to fail, and afraid to say we are afraid. But as Wayne Gretzky said, “You’ll always miss one hundred percent of the shots you don’t take!” Waiting for Jack will inspire you to get on the path, move forward and take the shot. And. to remember that you don’t have to wait for Jack! “Refreshingly vulnerable, witty and wise. Waiting for Jack feels like a conversation with your best friend over coffee. With an honest approach and take action message, Kristen Moeller motivates readers to make it happen. This book is a special gift!” —Robyn Spizman, New York Times–bestselling author
