Red Bank – For years, Chris Ruisi of Holmdel has brought his business knowledge to the offices of entrepreneurs, business leaders and other professionals, teaching them how to play to their full potential. Now he’s put that information into a new book, Step Up and Play Big: Unlock Your Potential to be Exceptional in 8 Simple Steps.
Ruisi will be holding a book signing and launch party at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 26, at The Oyster Point Hotel Grand Ballroom, 146 Bodman Place.
Twenty percent of the proceeds from Step Up and Play Big will go to the Wounded Warrior Project, an organization that embodies the principles contained in the book.
“When a young man or woman makes the decision to serve, they have taken the ultimate action to ‘step up.’ Wherever they may serve, regardless of the role they play, they must realize their full capabilities in order to ‘play big.’ ” Ruisi said.
Chris’ youngest son demonstrated his willingness to Step Up and Play Big when he made the voluntary choice to serve.
Ruisi is a professional speaker and mentor. He was COO/CEO at USLIFE Corp. and the founder of The Coach’s Zone, which offers executive coaching to improve business results. He mentors and guides executives and business leaders to find their “stretch” point to learn the full measure of their capabilities.
