By Matthew Barbis, Founder & Chairman

The Rose Brucia Educational Foundation

Tomorrow night, March 18th at Barnes & Noble at 150 E. 86th Street at 7pm, Best-Selling Author Lori Ann LaRocco will be launching her new book “Opportunity Knocking” published by Agate Publishing and donating her royalties to The Rose Brucia Educational Foundation.  We are inviting all our supporters and the general public to join us.  All attendees will have the opportunity to purchase an autographed copy of the book while helping support The Stranger Safety Awareness Program that is available, free of charge, to all parents, teachers and elementary schools across the globe.

In honor of LaRocco’s support, Barnes & Noble will also donate a percentage of the March 18th purchases to the foundation.  To ensure that your purchases benefit The Rose Brucia Educational Foundation, please use book fair voucher #11321908 at the checkout when you make purchases in-stores or online. The voucher will remain in effect online through March 23rd.

Known as “the producer with the trillion-dollar Rolodex”, LaRocco knows how to get business leaders and entrepreneurs to talk.  She has worked with leaders from many different industries, and brings their knowledge to light with her “Opportunity Pyramid”.

Opportunity Knocking is a wonderful compilation of business ideas, compelling leadership stories and a realistic peek into the personalities behind the corporate veil. Lori Ann LaRocco brings otherwise inaccessible business leaders right to the reader. Her unique style allows the reader to gain insight into each individual business mind and then she breaks down their techniques and ideas for easy implementation. I thoroughly enjoyed her own comments at the end of the chapters. I would recommend this book to all who enjoy their work – from those just starting out to the most seasoned in the business world. A great read!

But don’t take my word for it – listen to what some of the greatest business leaders in the world have to say:

A must-read filled with big ideas from some of the best in the business. LaRocco breaks down the steps to achieving success with a unique and actionable strategy. Compelling“, says real-state mogul Donald J. Trump.
