Michael Ford II's Summary

I have held a few different roles at The Dow Chemical Company, my present employer. I am currently a Grinder Operator.

I am an avid writer and blogger. My goal for my time with The Dow Chemical Company is to continue to progress and hopefully land an opportunity to write for the company.

My dream is to become a world-renowned author and highly sought-after speaker. I want to help others reach beyond their present circumstances and fulfill the true desires of their heart.

My first effort toward this dream comes in the form of my debut novel, "So You Have a Dream...Now What?" which was published in September 2011.

My book, endorsed by bestselling author, Dan Miller (48 days to the Work You Love), will challenge men to pursue their dreams instead of simply dreaming about them.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Be blessed,

Michael Ford II
