Sample Chapter

The most simple definition of an “underdog” is a person, group, or team who is expected to lose. On the flip side, the individual, group, or team expected to win is known as the “favorite” or “top dog”. In the case where an underdog wins, the outcome is an “upset”. These terms are commonly used in sports betting and politics, but the term is believed to have first been used in the blood-sport known as bear-baiting where the "top-dog" was trained to attack the bear's head and throat, and the "underdog" was trained to attack the bear's underside. The top-dog had a better chance of surviving and of beating the bear, whereas the underdog was more likely to die and losing…ALMOST invariably! This is a book about being an underdog and not only surviving but WINNING!!! Winning when all the odds are against you! When everyone BELIEVES there is NO WAY YOU COULD WIN!!!

H & R Block, Jackson Hewitt and Liberty Tax are the three largest tax preparation companies that have ever existed. While these industry giants currently enjoy being the “top-dogs” of an industry that consists of nearly 40,000 companies employing over 130,000 people that serve nearly 150 million individuals and 2.4 million corporations, none of them started out at the top and a guarantee that they’ll collect their current piece of the $8+ billion industry in future years is anything but a sure thing. Aside from taxes and climbing from the bottom to the top, they all have one thing in common – my father and I. This is their story, our story, my story, a story about underdogs, and, most importantly, a story for underdogs.

Are you an underdog? Have you ever been an underdog? Do you know what it feels like to have EVERYONE BETTING AGAINST YOU??? Only the person reading this knows the true answer to that question, but it’s a safe bet that most of you, like me, are. You see I believe each of us in an underdog at most moments of life. God didn’t put you on this earth to make it easy for you. You have to work hard and overcome obstacle after obstacle to achieve greatness in this tough world we live in. I was raised in an environment that, as I realized later in life, could influence any run-of-the-mill, normal, everyday, “underdog” to make it their mission to shred through any obstacles that stood in the way of realizing the status of “top-dog”. We trained, we practiced, we worked we got knocked down BUT we got up!!! You have to get up!!! You don’t have a choice. Life will give you obstacle after obstacle to overcome. It is how we react to these obstacles that determine our fate in life.

No matter what you set out to do, whether you want to become an entrepreneur, a professional athlete, apply for a new job, or whatever it is, many of us feel like an underdog in life. Many of us feel like we don't understand how we can compete. How can we compete against these big companies, big government, or against these people that are taller, stronger, faster and better than us? How are we going to survive in the playing field against the person, the company, the people, or the business that has everything going for them? It looks like everything is going against us. It looks as if the “top-dog” will win hands down. Will we get knocked down? All of us get knocked down! All of us have struggles and tribulations. Getting knocked down is INEVITABLE!! Getting back up is not!! It is a choice we get to make each and every moment of our life! Do we win the day?

In this book, I will share with you the ups and downs that my family has gone through in our years in the tax business. I will share you obstacle after obstacle that has stood in our way. How even when things got tough underdogs ALWAYS STAND BACK UP! From reading it, I hope you will learn how to compete when all the odds are against you. I hope you will understand what it takes to win as an underdog. You will hear stories from real life underdogs trying to survive in this world. If you have ever felt like an underdog, bet on an underdog or just all around love underdogs like I do then this book is for you. I want to help you win as an underdog.
