About the Book

René has done an excellent job of taking a favorite childhood activity and using it as an analogy for life and all of its lessons. His passion for cycling and for helping others shines through as he leads the reader to tools they can use to create success and fulfillment in their lives.

René was in the final stages of submitting his manuscript to Balboa Press when his mom, who was his biggest cheerleader about his book, passed away suddenly from a massive stroke. While her death had a major impact on René’s efforts to complete his book, he applied his own advice, using the tips that he mentions in this book to “keep pedaling” towards his dreams and goals.

Whether you’re reeling from a setback that threatens your dream… or trying to figure out how to keep focused on that dream… or wondering what to do about those friends who say you can’t succeed… or even if you lack purpose and simply want to find your passion… take advantage of René’s experience. Delivered in a warm, conversational style, his stories can show you that you aren’t alone. That you have what it takes to live a fulfilling life. The stories, along with tips at the end of each chapter, will help the reader move beyond obstacles that may be holding them back.

About the Author

René is a native Texan, born and raised in Dallas. An avid cyclist and outdoorsman, he enjoys hiking, camping, birding and canoeing. He also loves travel and connecting with new people. René has been certified in High Performance Workplace Practices, Situational Leadership, and Employee Coaching. In 2012, he completed a yearlong intensive coaching program with Jack Canfield. Afterward, Canfield selected René to join an elite group of trainers and coaches to be personally mentored in his Train the Trainer program. After years at a mostly sedentary job, an impulsive commitment to a 2-day, 150-mile bike ride had René scrambling for courage and endurance. Cycling helped build his confidence, both physically and mentally. It has given him the courage to take risks and inspired him to reach higher in all aspects of his life. The discipline that it takes to keep pushing up a mountain when his muscles are screaming in pain is the same discipline he uses every day in his life.
