Frank Siccone and I go way back to the early 1970s when we were graduate students at the University of Massachusetts. Later, when we had both moved to California, Frank and I were presenters at a national self-esteem conference, and I had the opportunity to sit in on Frank's session. He gave one of the most insightful presentations on the power of personal responsibility that I had ever heard. Since then, I have always thought of Frank as the ultimate expert on this topic. As a result, I asked Frank to collaborate on a series of workshops for teachers. Later we also co-authored a book on the subject of self-esteem and responsibility. Every time we worked together I learned more and more about the principles for successful living that Frank teaches. His insights and reflections have been very helpful to me on my life's journey.
