I recently came onboard at 女性户外运动新闻》网站贴出发表,, and one of my first clients was Vera Koo. To better understand, and therefore better connect and work for her, I decided to read her memoir,

 

I was already familiar with Koo’s reputation in the industry. I knew her as a champion shooter, with an incredible library of accomplishments in the sport. I also understood her as a kind and approachable woman, from meeting her in person at a recent trade show. When given the opportunity to scratch the surface beyond what I knew, I jumped. Wouldn’t it be great if all new clients had published their own memoirs?

What I found out about Vera, behind all the accomplishments, is astonishing. I found that I related to and had similar life experiences as her. I found she has an incredible depth and breadth to her life story, that I would have never imagined when shaking the hand of this intelligent, petite woman.

Vera Koo: Getting to Know the Memoir

虽然顾方蓁的 delves into the life and times of Vera Koo – it is a memoir, after all. It starts with her humble beginnings in China, details her immigration to the US at the age of 12. The stage is set, and the rest unfolds as the book progresses, explaining the struggle between being raised in a traditional Chinese household, and living as an American adult female. 

The timeline shifts between past and present, which kept me turning the pages. I always enjoy when a book gives a taste of information, and then jumps to another portion of the puzzle. This is an engaging way to cover ground. She details her accomplishments and struggles in male-dominated shooting sports. This information I anticipated, and thought Vera presented her journey clearly and efficiently.

她的人生哲理具有感染力,你会发现自己想将这些价值观融入自己的生活、成为一个更好的人,以更强的内在力量、善良和勇气去生活。精神方面的功课就像淋浴;我们要过更有意义的生活,就需要反复被提醒。谢谢你,方蓁,为快乐人生写了这样一本智慧手册,充满鼓励,让人心平气和。如欲了解更多信息,可前往verakoo.com、订购“Wisdom and Things”与了解方蓁第一本书“The Most Unlikely Champion”(《巾帼枪神 世界冠军之路》。) 女性户外运动新闻》网站贴出发表, (原文出处为线上读书俱乐部 .
