License to Live is where Heart of Darkness meets Chicken Soup for the Soul. It is the story of Elvin Dowling, an African American who not only to saw the world while mingling with those who rule it, but also gained the life experience to inspire others.
His story begins in an overcrowded apartment in a South Florida ghetto, winds its way through Capitol Hill in Washington, DC (and, from time to time, the White House), and lands on Wall Street, the financial capital of the world. "I am blessed and highly favored. To say that God has been good to me is an understatement when you consider the obstacles placed in my way and the losses I have endured."
By sharing the harsh realities of his upbringing, the author delves into the heart of lifes challenges while providing a roadmap for you to defy the cruelties of life. He reveals reactions to his own troubles, and unveils the detours to lead you to destiny rather than defeat. An eye-opening and heart-stirring message that sheds light on the truth that your past does not dictate your future.
Elvin Dowling is an acclaimed speaker, author and America's leading advocate for achieving greatness by embracing change. The former Chief of Staff for the National Urban League, Elvin has risen through the ranks in some of Americas leading advocacy organizations in spite of overwhelming obstacles. Today, his story of hope inspires others to step into their greatness.
