In the Author’s Own Words:

Luck Can Change is the name of my website because I fervently believe that whether in career, relationships. or in any other worthwhile endeavor, no one is condemned to bad luck their whole lives. This is true for a person, family, or even a community: luck can always change.

Whenever there were times when I felt down on my luck–and there were many–I thought about Colonel Saunders, who started the Kentucky Fried Chicken franchise at age 62, or Grandma Moses, a gifted painter who achieved recognition at age 78. Recent inspirations for Luck Can Change include the Boston Red Sox winning the World Series in 2004 for the first time in 86 years, and the Cleveland Cavaliers, who won a championship last year (2016) for that town for the first time in 52 years.

Don’t give up–there’s always hope. Luck Can Change.
