With $25, a sleeping bag, and the clothes on his back, Adam Shepard set out to a random city with a goal - to get a job, a car, an apartment and save $2,500 in the course of a year. He does it and he proves that with a the right amount of motivation and work ethic anyone can work their way up from the bottom.
The prose itself is a narrative of Adam's time in Charleston, SC. From his time in Crisis Ministries (a homeless shelter that works to get people back on their feet) to the time he left Charleston. There are several laugh out loud moments, some heartfelt moments, and some good pieces of advice for people looking to get back on their feet, or to get ahead.
