From Foster Care to Millionaire: A Young Entrepreneur’s Story of Tragedy and Triumph by Cody McLain
Cody’s story offers all the components you’d expect from the success story of a young entrepreneur with Asperger’s—motivation, drive, perseverance, focus, and passion. You might call it a rags-to-riches tale, and you wouldn’t be wrong. But that here-to-there narrative is only the top layer. Cody’s story unfolds to reveal a narrative that is more complicated and yet simpler, more central, to the human experience. What remains is the story of a boy, burdened like all of us with deep wounds and great gifts, searching for a purpose. What remains is a story that will inspire readers to find their true calling and work like hell to achieve their dreams.
