News & Opinion: inBubbleWrap: My Orange Duffel Bag giveaway!

By: Sally Haldorson @ 8:20 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

As Sam Bracken, author of My Orange Duffel Bag, says below, "Everyone has their own story." By all accounts, Sam Bracken's story is one of success. He graduated with a 3.9 GPA as #11 out of a class of 720 and won a full ride football scholarship to the Georgia Institute of Technology, graduating with honors, and then received his MBA from Brigham Young University's Marriot School of Management. He is now an executive with FranklinCovey Media Publishing. But we all know that judging a book by its cover (more on that later) is a risky practice, and Bracken's book, My Orange Duffel Bag, will, from its first page, give evidence that Bracken's journey has been anything but easy. But out of hardship, Bracken fought to change the direction of his life, and his book, My Orange Duffel Bag, provides readers with not only his life story, but a philosophy of radical change for everyone. Enumerating 7 Rules for the Road to reset the course of your life, or simply re-inflate your levels of thankfulness and dedication, Bracken's message is this: "Not everybody is brought into this world in the same environment. However, our choices determine our level of happiness." We are giving away 20 copies of My Orange Duffel Bag this week on inBubbleWrap.
