After Al Parisi’s battle with brain cancer left him unable to run the company he founded and took public, he created a better job: CEO of the Parisi family. In this new role, he began writing daily notes to his daughter, Ann Marie, on her lunch bags.
Those notes became Lunch Bag Notes: Everyday Advice from a Dad to His Daughter. In this companion book, Al has written a year’s worth of notes to his son, Anthony. Commentary and action steps accompany each note, showing young men how they can improve their lives each day.
The notes contain lessons in leading a faith-filled life, developing strong relationships with friends and family, having a positive attitude, working toward success, using one’s gifts to serve others, and making sound choices in life. The book is also intended to inspire parents—particularly fathers—to communicate with their teenage sons.
