From what I remember, it is a male author within the last 20 years. There are two books I remember.
First it starts out with a homeless man under a pier and an older gentlemen talks to him, and tells him to start reading biographies on famous historical people.
Second book (same author) talks about an older gentleman who always carries an old suitcase. He helps others throughout the book.
I think the author’s name is Andy (but not sure). He is a best selling author. The first book is actually about himself and he goes on to be a multi-millionaire businessman.
I’m just looking for the author’s name. I know he’s done more recent books, but I can’t remember his name.
Thanks for your help in this area.
