'Aspire' author and philanthropist Frank McKinney stops at Kearney Center on book tour
Delray Beach philanthropist and author Frank McKinney stopped at the Kearney Center in Tallahassee on Nov. 16 on his 20-city, 6,000-mile book tour for "ASPIRE! How to Create Your Own Reality and Alter Your DNA."
The book reveals real-life stories from McKinney’s interactions with 10,000+ homeless, billionaires, and everything in between; in addition to his own mind-blowing experiences.
Ultimately, the book is about reinvention. It’s about never settling for who we are born to be, or even what we think we’re capable of, and instead, breaking free of that limited mindset to create a new reality on our own terms.
Instead of stopping at the more typical tour stops of bookstores and book clubs, McKinney will be stopping at homeless shelters, soup kitchens, women’s shelters, juvenile detention centers, veterans hospitals, etc. to share his aspirational message, make donations, and give away prizes to the guests in attendance.
According to his website, McKinney has created and sold 44 oceanfront mansions on spec, with an average price of $14 million. He has built 29-nine self-sustaining villages over the last 19 years in Haiti, providing 13,000+ children and their families with homes, schools, clinics, community centers, churches, renewable food and clean water, and means to support themselves.
A best-selling author, actor, and keynote speaker, he has written seven books in six genres and starred in two movies. McKinney has raced in the Badwater 135-mile Ultramarathon 12 times.
As with all of his books, Frank wrote his latest bestseller in his Delray Beach oceanfront treehouse office.
All proceeds from the sale of "Aspire!" will benefit Caring House Project Foundation.
