Description
A little treasury of life lessons from a father to his daughter 

"Twenty years from now, what will you remember about your dad?" NBA executive Pat Williams, father of 19, asked his kids one day while sitting at the dinner table together. Today, he and his daughter Karyn, a rising country music star, share those answers. 

The Takeway, filled with practical advice, valuable information and heartfelt insight, is based on 14 lessons Karyn Williams treasures most from her amazing dad such as "Dare to Live Big," "The World Will Take Care of the Jerks" and "Never Stop Building Your Resume." With each heartfelt chapter, readers will "take away": 
  • Inspirational ways to deliver lasting truth to kids
  • Practical ideas for making the most of teachable moments at every age
  • Companion music Taking You With Me, an original song and recording from daughter Karyn, included as a free download with the book

The Takeaway promises to feed valuable information into every parent's heart and life that is rich in nutritional value for raising children who will go out and impact the world.

When All Is Said and Done, What Will They Take Away from You?

The story you've shared for generations across the holiday table, the moment you stopped to connect as you rushed out the door, or the pickup game of ball--"it's oftentimes the things we take for granted or bypass altogether in the fast pace of life.

As parents, we try to teach our children important lessons--"but are usually left wondering, Is anything I'm saying getting through? As children, we tend to think our parents' advice is old school and doesn't apply to our lives. But guess what? They were listening, and it does apply.

In The Takeaway, Pat Williams, father of nineteen multicultural children and senior vice president of the Orlando Magic, and his daughter Karyn, a rising music star, remind us of twenty simple, yet essential, truths for living a happy and fulfilled life. These memorable jewels of wisdom are lessons for all time that everyone can take away and apply to their lives. Practical and profound, this straightforward book can change your life for the better!
