Eblast-Image_final.jpgClick to Enlarge(CHICAGO, IL)  November 3, 2014—Brian Marshall and Scott Garwood, founders of the high-performance coaching firm True Growth Partners, are launching a Kickstarter campaign to publish “TOP FUEL: Lessons from a Crew Chief”. The book shares the inspiring, life-changing comeback of Jim Oberhofer, the crew chief of the MAC Tools Top Fuel dragster at Kalitta Motorsports. The 30-day campaign is seeking $47,000 to publish the book and will kick-off on Monday, November 3. Full information about TOP FUEL, including an inspirational message from Jim Oberhofer on the importance of his story, is available at the Kickstarter site,  

“This book is nothing about money, nothing about fame, but it’s all about being happy,” Oberhofer says in the Kickstarter video.  “I want to help everyone learn from the mistakes that I’ve made in the past so they can find happiness and success in everything they do.” 

The book’s mission is to inspire others to live a life of significance through Oberhofer’s rapid rise to victory, his unimaginable losses, and the epiphany that transformed his life both on and off the track. It will inspire readers to break the barriers that prevent happiness and pursue a high-performance life where everyday moments are the most significant ones of all.  

The back portion of the book will include a detailed explanation of the TOP FUEL methodology that True Growth Partners implemented to lead Oberhofer’s team back to success.   As founders of TGP, Garwood and Marshall help companies and high-performance sports teams find “true growth” by providing customized solutions to break from nonproductive rituals and routines and create positive transformations. 

“Including the TOP FUEL method is a very valuable addition to the book,” said Marshall. “The same methodology we applied to help Kalitta start winning again can be applied to any company, team, or organization struggling to find significance in their personal and work lives.”

 The 30-day Kickstarter campaign for TOP FUEL will end on Wednesday, December 3.
