I recently came onboard at 網站貼出發表,, 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

三星/四星 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,你會發現自己想將這些價值觀融入自己的生活、成為一個更好的人,以更強的內在力量、善良和勇氣去生活。精神方面的功課就像淋浴;我們要過更有意義的生活,就需要反覆被提醒。謝謝你,方蓁,為快樂人生寫了這樣一本智慧手冊,充滿鼓勵,讓人心平氣和。如欲瞭解更多資訊,可前往verakoo.com、訂購“Wisdom and Things”與了解方蓁第一本書“The Most Unlikely Champion”(《巾幗槍神 世界冠軍之路》。) 網站貼出發表, (原文出處為線上讀書俱樂部.
