    An extraordinary look into one of the most popular and successful dynasties in the racecar history; a man known simply as the 'Intimidator' driving the most well known black #3 racecar yet many may not know he started with a hot pink '56 Ford sedan and his real name was 'Ralph' Dale Earnhardt Sr and he was worth 70 million dollarsBehind the scene of the public fandom it was a troubled life and emotionally and physically took a toll on Kelley as she shares her most intimate and deeply profound innermost feelings about her father her love of her family her need to protect her brother Dale Jr and her constant struggles to fit into the world of stock car racingIt's a tough sport but even harder when you can't gain attention when you feel ignored when all you want as a young impressionable child is LOVETo be accepted to be appreciated to be loved what greater gift exist in the world?That father daughter bond was absent partly due to being on the track partly because of his off track fan appeal partly due to his other extended relationships including his second wife Teresa dating before his first marriage had even endedHow to measure up go to school get a job be successful get married have kids raise a family all of this and was discussed in aiming to please the man himselfDale Sr was married 3 times and divorced twice He left school in 8th grade He was a seven time Winston Cup Series Champion and one of the most beloved drivers in the sportTo Kelley she wondered where she fit into his inner circle Was it due to her father's upbringing was it because of Teresa's interactions was he distant because of his own inner workingsWhatever the reason she may never know but she felt it all immensely because she's someone who Leads from the HeartAs a child she felt she was always sharing her father with her fans Today she has come to respect and appreciate those fans who continue to follow this family regardless of being on or off the trackIt's a fine line with finding a lifework balance and it's not often easy when raising a family supporting a spouse being a cheerleader for others but you can't be both a cheerleader and a Debbie DownerIt's important to take time off to prioritize to have your voice heard When the 41st President George HWBush suddenly passed away during her writing of this book she noticed that while he had been so successful in life he was often referred and remembered by how well he treated others For his kind heart his emotional appeal his love for those around him and it showed by the huge outpouring of support his death had upon the worldListening understanding assisting others in times of needs that's what is important in life be it as a business or as a personAs human beings we are in a constant state of evolution always seeking the next best thing always on the move looking forward Yet we need to take the time to 'smell the roses' to 'appreciate one another' to learn from our past mistakes and to know the difference between skills and passionFollow your dreams is a true statement along with dreaming big but going after your passion wholeheartedly will never fail if you support it with your skills and talentThere are a number of fields of study out there today Courses such as Criminal Justice are often filled in high numbers Yet think it through and know that if you're not exactly thrilled to be a police officer than you might want to focus on the core subjects as her own daughter KarsynKelley has lived a life with highs and lows and while two divorces wasn't easy she notes that you have to let it go Negatives weigh you down and tear away at the fibers of your natural beingYou can't control everything of what happens to you but you can choose how you respond to it allIn closing Maybe he was a great race car driver and knew how to handle the public the media but he wasn't a great dad and that's what mattered most to meKelley has shown time and time again that she was and is the foundation behind many of the decision making processes in DEI and beyond and that she is a strong and determined woman who knows how to get her voice heard We hear her and we admire what she's accomplished and continues to explore develop and conuer

    I am huge Earnhardt family fan and a life long NASCAR fan so I jumped on the opportunity to read this book when it came out I appreciated the insights on the famous family from a point of view I hadn't heard before Some of that came across as a little bitter and there was lots of selfish finger pointing I don't want to unfairly judge someone's life story however I do feel I can judge the writing style The choice of words and stories felt very one sided and a little unfair especially for someone who said they had been through therapy to copeAs a woman in business I hoped I could glean some new tips to take back to my life as a VP I appreciate and agree with the 9 lessons presented in the book however this book read very much to me as a mom's advice on business rather than a straight set of tools anyone can apply As a woman in business I want to be supportive of women in business but this book focused too much on emotional factors and work life balance for my taste The writing style was very conversational which didn't uite land with me and my career needs I could see this book being most impactful to a younger person trying to navigate the waters of business for the first time That said getting in the door is half the battle some times and going into the family business and having success is uite different than making your way on your own

    Well writtenThe book is well written and very informative The stories Kelley shares about being a protector door her brother and their relationship makes her sound so down to earth The book also made me look at my life choices and the steps to become a happy productive and fulfilled person
