GROWING DREAMS is very, very, very, unique. It follows the example of the early 20th century authors who presented their books first in series form in the best magazines of that era.

The series was so well received that it has prompted Paluch to compile the first novel ever written with a landscape company as the backdrop. GROWING DREAMS is full of content and practical ideas as it systematically introduces the concepts of ORGANIZATIONAL EXCITEMENT, a blueprint for every owner to use to ENERGIZE their company and team.
