HANDS UP: John Mariotti Returns With A New, Fun And Informative Book

Mariotti explains how HANDS UP came into being. "After spending a couple of years learning to box, I realized that the lessons about boxing provided great metaphors for lessons in life and work. In fact, the subtitle of this book, “ti’s not about boxing; it’s about changing your life,” was a sign on the wall of the Sullivan Brothers boxing gym. The book came about after a series of sessions discussing the similarities between boxing, work and life. After allowing the nearly finished book to sit for a couple of years, I was encouraged to finish it and get it out where people could enjoy it. Here is the announcement.

HANDS UP is a story about two guys from Columbus, OH who decided to try their idea and fulfill their dream—to own and operate their own boxing gym. They didn't want to become one of the “cookie-cutter” franchise gyms. This was going to be “personal,” because boxing is personal, and the preparation needed, is something that each person must do differently. The Sullivan brothers wanted their gym to appeal to all ages, both genders—in other words—everyone. The reason is simple. The most important lessons in boxing apply equally to life, and work, and that’s what this little book is all about. The lessons line up so well, it's hard to forget them, once you've understood them. Life is hard; work is hard; so is boxing. But anything worthwhile in life, in work, and in boxing takes dedication and hard work. That's why this book is not just about boxing; it’s about changing your life!

You can get "HANDS UP” in both kindle and paperback at AMAZON.COM.
