Editing client publishes story of his fall

The latest Success Can Kill You Rod Jettonbook by editing client Rodney Jetton has been released. "Success Can Kill You: One Man's Story of Success, Failure and Forgiveness." During the 1000s, Jetton became the second youngest House Speaker in Missouri state history only four years after being elected to the state legislature. He was a powerful force in that state’s Republican Party and on the fast track to becoming Governor of Missouri, when his personal life exploded as he went through a very public and humiliating fall.

On Dec. 7, 2009, he was arrested for felony assault after a one-night stand with a woman he connected with on Facebook. Soon after that, he received a call from a former girlfriend telling him she was pregnant and he was going to be a father at the age of 42. Then, just a few weeks later, Jetton found out he was the target of a grand jury investigation from his handling of a bill when he was Speaker.

This book is Jetton's testimony of how the pursuit of power and his unparalleled political success almost destroyed his life. His candid way of explaining his mistakes and pointing out the dangers of putting his career in front of his faith and family will be of great benefit to driven leaders focused on accomplishing their goals. The book is available in both paperback and ebook.

In an economic climate where you face heavy competition, your writing needs a second eye to give you the edge. Whether you come from a big city like Phoenix, Arizona, or a small town like Last Chance, Idaho, I can provide that second eye.
