NCF to benefit from local author who will donate 100% of first book proceeds to local charities

From Scenesarasota.  com  December 13, 2019
Local retired entrepreneur and philanthropist Mitchell Epstein has released his first book, Mr. Lucky: My Unexpected Journey to Success, with 100% of proceeds being donated to local charities, all supporting scholarships and less fortunate children and families in the community.

Epstein, a first-time author, was inspired to write about his own life’s stories, challenges and “Mr. Lucky” perspective while mentoring two local young men who were homeless shortly before he met them.  The book, a gift from the heart that Epstein hopes will inspire readers during this holiday season and beyond, demonstrates that you don’t have to be the smartest person in the room to succeed in the business world. His unique viewpoint – presented in an entertaining and easy to read format, enabled him to take what an associate called “the stupidest idea” ever and build the foundation for a business that was so successful it allowed him to retire at age 47.
