About the Book

Found Treasure: Gems of Great Leadership and Personal Skills offers the field-tested wisdom of a successful insurance executive, coach, teacher, and father whose background and experience have led him to unearth a wealth of insights for finding a satisfying and successful path through life. Lloyd “Skip” Amstrup has refined and polished the gems he has collected through his own education and history and presents them in a practical and approachable resource.

Found Treasure suggests that fifteen f-words embody a collection of gems that help to define who each person is and what he or she aspires to accomplish in life. These topics include failure, faith, family, fear, feelings, flexibility, focus, forgiveness, framework, freedom, friendship, fruitfulness, fundamentals, funniness, and the future.

Each chapter typically begins by introducing its focus and then shares some stories that refine that focus. Then some guidance, advice, and wisdom for navigating life’s journey follow. Finally, the chapter introduces its f-word and ties it to the chapter’s topic. The book ends with a helpful guide to further resources for living.

This book serves as your practical companion offering guidance for personal development leading to the fulfillment of your life’s goals—both personal and professional.
