Texas Entrepreneur, Larry Powell, Successfully Launches

post-9/11 Life’s Little Book of Survival Quotes

Dallas, Texas.  January 31, 2014.  By 2001, Larry Powell had built his advertising agency into a nationally recognized, award-winning company that was rapidly approaching the $1 million mark.  Then on September 11th, his upward trajectory and client list plummeted as a result of the Twin Towers terrorist attacks.

Along with millions of Americans his personal and business life was torpedoed by the domino effect of great loss.  Throughout the post-9-11 years, he combatted a series of tragedies that could cripple the strongest of people. 

While embracing this period of rebirth, Powell gave great consideration as to how he could help others face and overcome emotional upheavals.  So he gathered over 1,000 inspirational quotes from notable people throughout history into Life's Little Book of Survival Quotes:  How to Stay Inspired and Motivated to Succeed During Tough Times, to remind people there is light at the end of the tunnel.

“I wrote this to show people that no matter how they’re feeling or what they’re going through, it WILL NOT last forever,” Powell says.  “And just the right word at the right time can make all the difference.

Within a few short months after publication, Life’s Little Book of Survival Quotes has received five-star acclaim from his growing readership on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Good Reads and other literary venues:

“This book is a wonderful compilation of quotes that range from common sense, to profound wisdom, to Biblical instruction.  While the title appoints the book as ‘little, it is certainly ‘big’ on advice and rich with content from many perspectives.  If nothing else, some of the quotes will make you laugh out loud, and leave you wondering why you may be fretting over a situation at all.” ~ Vince Jackson

Today Powell is a Dallas-based marketing and advertising consultant, as well as life/business coach, mentor, speaker, philanthropist and educator -- all of which have been foundations for developing his Life’s Little Book series of affirmational enlightenment. 

Underpinning his drive to affect change are four key components:  The human spirit, survival, diversity, and the "mojo" (the magic) in his passion for success -- all of which have been assimilated into his work with organizations such as the Boy Scouts of America, Habitat for Humanity, Boys and Girls Clubs of America, Texas Christian University, and dozens of others across the United States.

“Black Enterprise” magazine and the “Dallas Business Journal” -- that both feature articles of growth, survival and strategies for business success – have showcased his success in an industry notorious for burnout and failure.  But like the mythological phoenix rising from ashes, he survived against all odds and is living a life of renewal and inspiration for millions of people. 

Powell believes that without the rollercoaster of the ups and downs of his own life, he wouldn’t be the survivor he is today.  And Life's Little Book of Survival Quotes:  How to Stay Inspired and Motivated to Succeed During Tough Times wouldn’t be finding its way to bookshelves all around the world.
