Publisher's Description

There are times in our life when we feel stuck. Our noble desires for a successful career and family life get bogged down or derailed by the challenges before us. Whether it be a difficult circumstance or our own limiting beliefs and fears, we can’t seem to get past what holds us back.

Jay Coughlan was confronted with a personal hell that started with making a terrible choice to drive home after drinking with his father. This decision resulted in a horrific car crash that killed his dad. Jay provides a remarkable story of perseverance from convicted felon to successful CEO.

Five Bold Choices helps you break free from the barriers that prevent you from realizing your untapped potential. What if the things you fear and avoid are portals to your success and significance as a leader at work and at home? No one seeks trials, but they can put us on a pathway toward realizing our true purpose and potential.

In this book, Jay Coughlan and best-selling author Larry Julian map out five bold choices that can get you unstuck and enjoying the journey God intended for your life. This book will not only inspire you to triumph over your most challenging issues, it will provide a practical plan to persevere and realize the true potential that lies within you.

Editorial Reviews

Big decisions often change lives. Five Bold Choices will positively inspire you to consider bold choices that could transform your life—and the lives of many others.
Tim Pawlenty, former Governor, State of Minnesota
Adversity brings opportunity, and how we deal with it determines whether we enjoy the journey. Five Bold Choices is a great guidebook for anyone who feels stuck and wants to get back on the path they were destined to live.
Jerry Colangelo, Chairman, USA Basketball; former owner, Phoenix Suns and Arizona Diamondbacks

Most leadership books train readers to share their successes and hide their failures. With stories of remarkable transparency, Five Bold Choices helps the reader see failure as not something to fear but an opportunity to grow.
Cheryl A. Bachelder, CEO, Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, Inc.; author, Dare To Serve

Five Bold Choices blends Jay’s riveting personal story with decades of experience as a CEO. The result is a book that gives us the clarity and courage to make the bold choices that make the most out of life’s greatest challenges. This book will embolden you to action.
Dan Buettner, National Geographic Fellow and three-time New York Times bestselling author of the Blue Zones: Lessons from the World’s Longest-Lived People

This little gem is worth a quick read. You will come away with some solid ideas to make your personal and professional life better.
—Tad Piper, retired Chairman and CEO, Piper Jaffray Companies
Any leader knows that bold choices either bring growth or disaster. Making bold choices wisely is the key. Based on profound personal experiences, Jay and Larry spell out five fundamentals that we all need as leaders, family members, and friends to make wise choices.
—Brad Hewitt, CEO, Thrivent Financial

Drawing upon their own professional and personal experiences, Coughlin and Julian not only offer their insights and wisdom as to how one can navigate life’s storms with clarity and conviction, but do so while leading the reader on an intimate journey emerging from their own spiritual and personal renewal. Be forewarned: reading this book will not only cause one to reexamine and reassess his or her current status in life, professional or personal, but will provide scriptural principles necessary to pursue a life of influence rather than a life of affluence. Coughlin and Julian use various passages of Scripture to drive home the strategic importance of being grounded and balanced, both spiritually and personally. I recommend Five Bold Choices to those individuals who may be re-examining their standing in life or who simply need quiet reassurance that they are on the right path.
Dr. Alan Cureton, President, University of Northwestern St. Paul, MN
Authentic! Transparent! Powerful! A clear framework that I can personally apply to overcome challenges. Jam-packed with relevant life-changing truth! A huge thanks to Coughlan and Julian for sharing Five Bold Choices with the world.
David Horsager, speaker, strategist, and author of The Trust Edge
