LOUISVILLE, Ky., Sept. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Business Strategist & University of Louisville Professor Henrietta Pepper announces the release of her first book, Out of The Gate: What Inspires Us Drives Us Forward.
The book is a compilation of stories rooted in the blended life of faith, family and friends. Kentucky author, Henrietta Pepper, shares her relatable stories which readers can absorb and embrace through their own personal lens.
Donna Barton Brothers explains in her foreword, “Henrietta creates a brilliant analogy when comparing the smooth or treacherous conditions of life to the track conditions at a Thoroughbred race track. As a former jockey and now horse racing reporter and analyst for NBC Sports, I can relate to the stories the author poignantly relates beyond track conditions to everyday life.”
“The author’s Kentucky roots provide the perfect backdrop to motivate you to push to the finish line in healthy mind, body and spirit through all phases of life. Out of the Gate is truly thought-provoking.”
