BE THE HERO You've Been Waiting For is a profound call to action for each of us to step up, be real, and express ourselves with love and passion in the world. It is also a bold and beautiful reminder that each of us makes a difference in the lives of those around us. Rich and Yvonne are two of the most incredible people I have ever met. Their work has impacted me, my life, my family, and my work in a deep way and I am eternally grateful to them. Your life will be transformed by reading this remarkable book written by two visionary, authentic, and remarkable leaders who truly walk their talk!”

Rich and Yvonne manage to slip the mask off of our favorite super heroes and show us that they look and act just like us.

BE THE HERO is an incredible journey through the inner workings of their lives and my own. It filled me with love and inspiration and true hope that change is possible”

— Chris Prima
I just finished Rich & Yvonne's new book, "BE THE HERO You've Been Waiting For," and it's like a Challenge Day or Next Step To Being The Change workshop in writing. I LOVED it, and HIGHLY recommend it to ANYONE who is breathing!

If I used a textbook in my work as a Marriage and Family Therapist, BE THE HERO You've Been Waiting For would absolutely be it!”
