About the Author

Bill Jones was born the youngest of six children in a poor family in 1930’s Brooklyn. With his father in prison for 15 years and Bill himself suffering from Gran Mall seizures starting in elementary school, he knows what it’s like to live a childhood with very tough circumstances and little chance of future success. Yet out of this he forged an incredible career catering to the stars of stage and screen, and some of the most influential corporations of our time. Bill credits his success to his spirit of determination, willingness to take on new challenges, and inner faith in knowing that it would all work out if he just followed his dream.
