Your Guide to Better

Receive insight to improve all your relationships: personal and professional. Strengthen yourself, your marriage, your family, as well as your workplace and community.

Author Jim R. Jacobs takes the common experiences of being on the road and applies them to our daily lives, asking readers to rev up their hearts and minds to achieve a smoother ride.

Life's Potholes

Whether you’re already sailing along with cruise control or maneuvering life’s potholes, these stories will give you the motivation and relationship skills to find and own your lane.

Filled with car metaphors, hot rod memories, deep insights, and rear-view mirror humor, these books will teach you what your driving instructor never did — from what not to do at a car wash to the history behind giving “the bird.” 

Best of all, the car metaphors will make you recall and ponder the life lessons every time you get in a vehicle. Because cars are an integral part of our daily life, those frequent reminders will result in lasting change. 

You’ll experience less road rage, more safety and security, more sing-alongs, and more appreciation for your fellow travelers. 

The joy ride awaits you on the first page.
