Life gets busy. Has The Promise of a Pencil been gathering dust on your bookshelf? Instead, pick up the key ideas now.
We’re scratching the surface here. If you don’t already have the book, order the book or get the audiobook for free to learn the juicy details.
The Promise of a Pencil doesn’t lay out a methodology for improvement in some area, or present an argument for a certain set of actions, or provide education about some aspect of psychology or economics.
It simply tells a story. That story, however, is abundantly rich in simple, honest truth about the detailed steps that one man took to build a world-class and world-changing organization from the ground up. In these pages, Adam Braun shares how he left his job at elite management consulting firm Bain & Company to found Pencils of Promise, a “for-purpose” organization that builds schools in the developing world. There are layers upon layers of insight here, available to anyone who will take the time to connect the dots.
Sir Richard Branson says, “For anyone with a big dream to transform the world, this book will show you how to get it done,” and Gary Vaynerchuk calls the book “A perfect step-by-step guide to building the life you’ve always wanted on your own terms. Pay attention to the details and apply them to your passions.”
