A Book Launch Hit Out Of The Park: RUNNING WITH MY HEAD DOWN

After months of writing a book—recording and transcribing interviews, composing multiple drafts, plus the editing and copy-editing—it’s finally time to PUBLISH!

This is the fun part of book writing–the final result of a huge amount of work.

At last, rather than just reading your book on a computer screen, you can hold in your hand an actual printed book, the tangible result of your vision.

I can never forget the time I held my first book, the biography of legendary concert pianist Vladimir Horowitz. The book took 3 ½ years to write, and at last, it was done.

 

And so it is for FRANK FIUME, a pioneer in the youth sports industry and founder of i9 Sports, nation’s leading franchisor of youth leagues and camps.

After almost a year of intense work, Frank has finally completed his personal memoir, RUNNING WITH MY HEAD DOWN, a riveting motivational memoir that reveals the secrets to finding your life mission.

 

Here is the riveting story of a boy from a tenement apartment in
Queens who was obsessed with the game of baseball.

He becomes a super-fan who
idolized the Yankees and devoured player statistics, collecting vintage
cards and organizing backyard leagues.

As he matures, he turns this passion for the game into a life purpose. Laser-focused, with nothing to lose, he runs toward his goal with his ‘head down,’ defying skeptics, ultimately becoming a pioneer in the youth sports industry.

Best of all, through all the ups and down of his life, he presents the reader with prescriptive strategies for enhancing personal success and happiness. 

Unlike any other author I’ve ever known, Frank is pulling out all the stops to hit a literary home run.

 

For starters, he’s hired the preeminent digital marketing guru in the U.S.. His name is Ken Gillett of Target Marketing, a cutting edge company that collaborates with such bestselling authors as Ray Dalio, Howard Marks, and Hillary Clinton.

Frank is also allied with Greenleaf Book Group, which has one of the best distribution networks in the U.S..

His book will be available in Barnes & Nobles, for pre-order on AMAZON,  and in every airport bookstore in the nation.

And that’s just the beginning, as all Frank’s TV, radio, newspaper and media appearances will be coordinated by Smith Publicity, which specializes in business book marketing, self-help book promotion, non-fiction book publicity and sports PR.

In his public speaking appearances, Fiume discusses the secrets to building a business from the ground up, entrepreneurial leadership, corporate life cycles, and the importance of personal development via seminars and retreats.

Frank’s speaking points include:

The Entrepreneur Identity Crisis: How to overcome the self-limiting belief that your identity is your business.
