Paperback: 224 Pages
Publisher: Thomas Nelson (February 9, 2021)
Successful businesswoman and daughter of NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt Sr. shares her story of growing up in the world of auto racing and the lessons she learned along the way.
Just like a racecar as it takes to the track, each of us needs a certain amount of fine-tuning for our journey through life. In Drive, Kelley Earnhardt Miller, daughter of Dale Earnhardt Sr. and sister to Dale Jr., opens up about growing up in the world of NASCAR, sharing the lessons she learned about being a successful business leader and what she discovered, often the hard way, about winning in life.
Kelley never felt she was winning at anything until she began to deal with the thoughts and feelings that were driving her decisions and taking her in the wrong direction. Her journey of transformation is what empowered her to run the family business in an entirely different way than she had previously and to lead people not only with her head but also with her heart.
Drive offers nine important lessons learned about winning in business and in life, given not as a formula for greatness but as insight from a fellow traveler on a journey that is sometimes difficult, painful, unexpected, or confusing—and sometimes exhilarating and joyful:
- Be Authentic and Approachable
- Know How to Make Decisions
- Position for Success
- Let Go to Move Forward
- Customize Your Communication
- Aim for the Win-Win
- Manage Your Emotions
- Balance Your Work With Your Life
- Lead from the Heart
Become a stronger person and a more effective leader by facing the truth about your own life in a healthy way, and then drive to the win!
