Disrupt Yourself: Choosing Courage Over Comfort, On Purpose (Hardcover)
This story is about the power that everyone has to inspire others, especially when we value human connection and the courage to be uncomfortable.
After performing on stages that he once dreamed about as a child, then writing Overnight Success and The Storymaker, professional speaker and entertainer Morris Morrison knew there was another story that needed to be told. After sitting in a North Carolina DMV as he waited to renew his driver's license, Morris noticed two things: first, he noticed the influx of national and international people moving to the Carolinas, and second, he couldn't help but notice the amount of people sitting with their heads looking down into their phones. After becoming obsessed with the lack of human connection in our world today, Morris Morrison's first fictional release, Disrupt Yourself, was born after he asked himself one simple question: what would happen if everyone actually talked to each other, instead of being distracted by devices.
