Description

Ever dream of quitting the rat race to chase your passion?

Meet David Putnam and Yair Lichtenstein, college buddies who ditched promising careers to open a tiny surf shop on the Caribbean shores of Aruba. In Little Giant, author Marcia Heath vividly recounts how the two Generation X trailblazers defied the odds to transform Bula Surf Shop into a thriving iconic brand...all while keeping their entrepreneurial passion (and friendship) alive.

Masterfully blending memoir, biography, and uncommon wisdom, Marcia reveals how David and Yair's bold choices inspired her own journey from burnt-out baby boomer to finding her true calling as a writer.

The world separates doers from dreamers. This book celebrates the rare few who are both.

Do you yearn for more freedom, fun, and purpose in your life? This captivating true story dares you to heed the dream knocking at your door’s heart.
