JEFF JOHNSON, AWARD-WINNING JOURNALIST AND BET PERSONALITY, LAUNCHES “PERSONAL BEST” BOOK TOUR
New York, NY (BlackNews.com) – In his newly released book, EVERYTHING I’M NOT MADE ME EVERYTHING I AM: Discovering Your Personal Best (SmileyBooks, Trade Paperback Original; $14.95), Jeff Johnson shares his “best practices” for achieving your “personal best” in every facet of life. Johnson reached his own personal best through a combination of life experiences learned in the trenches, professional and personal challenges, and invaluable lessons taught by mentors over the years. Now, with his new book, his goal is to inspire others to discover and fulfill their true life’s mission.
A success by any standard–award-winning journalist, Tom Joyner Morning Show commentator, BET broadcast personality, and motivational speaker–Johnson is a man on the move. Recently returned from filming an independent documentary in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, on September 22 Johnson will host a BET Town Hall Meeting on Health Care Reform to be held in conjunction with the Congressional Black Caucus annual legislative weekend. Whether he is coaching young professionals, mentoring urban youth, or spending quality time with his children, Johnson always seeks to find new ways to reach his personal best.
Known for a straightforward, shoot-from-the-hip rapport with his audience, Johnson brings that same dynamic style to his debut book. He delivers a powerful framework for those who need relevant examples and realistic help as they pursue their own personal best–regardless of their age or life stage. Johnson dares us to make sure we aren’t living somebody else’s dream.
