SPOTLIGHT: HOW DID I GET HERE? by Andrew Fitzgerald Plus Giveaway!

About The Book

Publication Date: February 14, 2023


As he woke up after dying for the second time, Andrew Fitzgerald asked himself, “How did I get here?”

As he and his wife left Ireland and stepped foot on American soil to begin their lives in the US, he asked himself, “How did I get here?”

As his wife delivered their baby after four miscarriages, he asked himself, “How did I get here?”

As he sat in a customer sales meeting and negotiated the new listing, authorizations, and launch for what is now the no.1 Hard Seltzer in the USA, he asked himself, “How did I get here?”

As he stood on the first tee about to play golf with one of his sporting heroes and a three-time major champion, he asked himself, “How did I get here?”

As he sat in a board room meeting, asserted himself, and rebuked some negative assertions about him, he asked himself, “How did I get here?”

In this poignant memoir about resilience, Andrew Fitzgerald shares his story of immigrating from Ireland to America, only to return to Ireland, and then back to America for good. He explores his struggles with health crises, corporate culture, miscarriage grief, and adapting to his new country.

You’ll follow Andrew’s story as he shares his key learnings from the highs and lows of his journey, such as:

  • Talk about your challenging experiences; find someone to help you process your feelings
  • Follow your dreams; know they’re right for you no matter how they sound to others
  • Give yourself time to adjust; when making big life changes avoid running back to what was comfortable
  • Be true to your values; define what your values are and stick to them
  • Learn to trust; trust yourself, have confidence and don’t forget your purpose in everything you do
  • Negotiate in partnership; practice techniques that are customer-centric and deliver a win/win for your customer and company
  • Celebrate success; you deserve it

Andrew will affirm and demonstrate in his book that the journey is just as important as the destination, with the stark realization that the journey filled with highs and lows is sometimes more fulfilling than the destination. So come with Andrew on this journey to learn how he overcame the various obstacles in his life, flourished, and ultimately traveled the road to resilience a key trait you too can develop in your personal and business life.

​Resilience is for everyone…..Are you ready?
