Vance – Central Texas

Cortney, I enjoyed your book. It is easy to read and to the point. I am the superintendent of a school in central Texas. I would like to purchase some paper-back editions of your book. It will be great if I can put one in the hands of each teacher here. I am always looking for easy reads that have substance for my teachers. I am thankful for people like you – the ones that have the courage to step out and take chances.

I received a link to download a free e-book copy. I read it and I couldn’t stop reading it because it is so awesome to me. It is a great down-to-earth read. It keeps you interested; it’s inspiring; it’s direct and to the point. It’s encouraging, and it’s spiritual. This young man gives his testimony with no apologies about his faith in God. I not only read it, but I’m reading it again. I will read it again and again! That’s how valuable this book is!

When I began to read this book, I could not put it down! “Stuck in Neutral” is an above average book. From the onset, purpose is demonstrated and defined through an individual’s personal relationship with God. If you are stuck in a circumstance or situation, take your key, place the key in the ignition of your car called LIFE, and begin your quest on the road to live LIVE LIFE IN DRIVE by reading this book.

New Book Coming 2015 – “Stuck In Neutral: How to Achieve Success by Living in Drive”

In 2015 I will be releasing my 2nd published book. This book is nothing at all like my first.

Stuck In Neutral: How to Achieve Success by Living in Drive will be nothing like any other book you’ve ever read in your life. It’s wisdom, knowledge, insight and Biblically-based principles will change your life forever if you apply them to every area of your life. Its core message is that anyone, anywhere can achieve success and “live in drive” if they take personal responsibility for their life, put forth Level-10 effort and have undying determination and faith.

Everything that I have written in this book is what I have learned through my life’s struggles, trials, tribulations, successes and victories. If you take these principles of success and apply them to your life, I guarantee you that you will be successful and fulfill all your lifelong dreams. “Stuck In Neutral” is a self-help and personal development book. However, it’s not regurgitated, recycled self-help information you’ve heard from the majority of motivational speakers. These are principles of success that took me from college dropout to award winning graphic designer, national radio host, published author and serial entrepreneur.

This book differs in that this is self-help from a Biblical standpoint. In the book I’m not explicitly quoting scriptures in each paragraph, but I do make reference to several specific scriptures. This is my personal experience- these are the principles that have personally help me to become the man I am today. My prayer is that it will help other people find themselves and help them live the life God created them to live.

In this book you will learn how to:

  • Identify your gift and discover your purpose
  • Believe in yourself and build “God-confidence”
  • Maximize your greatest asset – YOU
  • Use failure as an opportunity to learn and grow
  • Overcome fear, and more

Stuck In Neutral will be released January 2015. It will be available as a hard copy and as an e-book everywhere that books are sold. In the meantime, visit

At the end of the day when you lay your head down on your pillow, you are the only one who’s responsible for the outcome of your life. Strive to make adjustments, not excuses. LIVE LIFE IN DRIVE!!
