There’s a book I own called The Barefoot Executive by Carrie Wilkerson. I was thinking about purchasing either the Nook or Kindle version, because I read it years ago and I’ve been thinking about whether or not I want to read it again to refresh myself with it.

After checking the price on B&N, I decided to see if there was a better deal on Amazon’s page for the electronic version. If you’ve ever been there, you’ll have noticed that they have that intriguing ranking system where people can write reviews of the books or movies they’ve purchased. For whatever reason, even though I already own the book, I was drawn to the reviews of the book.

There was a picture I came across that someone had posted. It showed a black woman and a white woman next to each other, although in two different pictures. Both pictures were mugshots, and both of the women had been arrested for some kind of child abuse.

Unless you’re connected to me on Facebook or are watching some of the videos from my personal YouTube channel, you probably don’t know what’s been going on in my life lately. If you don’t care, then don’t go any further than this. If you do, I’ve got more to share with you. At the end of this article I’ll have a point to make.

May I talk about myself as a leadership trainer and mentor for a minute?
Those of you who know me know that I write a blog on the subject of leadership and other things I believe are associated with leadership.

Let me share a story with you. When I was a kid, I lived on an Air Force base in Limestone, Maine. People used to ask who my dad made mad enough to send us that far up, but so be it.
I used to bowl in Saturday morning leagues, and I wasn’t bad as a kid. One year, a group of us decided we wanted to go to this state tournament for kids our age; I have no idea where it was at this point, but I wish I could remember it. Anyway, we left with our chaperone on a Friday, headed to this particular town somewhere in Northern Maine, south of where we were already living. I knew things were going to be somewhat different as soon as we went into the hotel.
