Everyone Has a story. Life – It’s A Trip is my story.

Or more appropriately, it’s a collection of stories from my life.

I was inspired to write a story a day, which I did for a month, back in 2014. I wrote it longhand using a notebook and a pen. Then I added a few more to it later and had it typed, edited, and organized into a free-flowing narrative.

After sharing the collection with some friends, I sat on it for more than a year despite encouragement from them to get it published.

All things in its own time, as they say. The time has come for me to share it with the world.

I read it in one sitting and really enjoyed it. Your book contains a lot of wisdom presented in an easy, understandable manner. A small manual on happiness.

I really like what you’ve written. In fact, I can hear your voice. You’re a fine storyteller…partly because you’re so alert about your life. Think lots of people will enjoy reading this and some will be inspired.
~ Barbara Winter, author of Making a Living Without a Job.

For the last eight years, I have been self-employed, and I have made a decent living letting my customer decide what my services were worth to them.

So I have decided to follow the same principle here, and let you decide what you want to pay for it. If after reading it you feel that it was worth more, you can always make another contribution. And if you think it wasn’t worth what you initially paid for it, simply drop me a line and I will be more than happy to reimburse you for what you feel you overpaid. After all, it is for you to decide what it’s worth to you.

(If you find it difficult to decide as to how much, try $10 or $20. You can always adjust it up or down later.)

    My favorite part was it wasnt telling me what to do or how to be. It was like chatting with Rasheed, who is one of my favorite people on the planet. His interview on my radio show was one of my favorite of all time!! Cheers brother! Great book!!!

      Hey Joe,

      Thanks for the Kudos bro.

      Yes, that was a fun couple of hours. If you have a link to that show it would be ultra cool if you can share it here.

      Thanks again, and Peace.

    Just finished the book: Life – It’s a Trip. To begin with, I like the double entendre of the title. I found the stories to be very interesting, and I enjoyed very much getting to know you better, Rasheed. Each story was a nice blend of your personal experience and what that experience taught you. Thanks for sharing them. Some interesting things I learned about you are that you have been a member of Toastmasters for 12 years, you used to manage a Pizza Hut in Chicago, and you now live in what you call a “mobile domocile”, a KIA mini-van (well, actually, I already knew that from your posts on Facebook). I didn’t know that you had travelled so extensively and been to all the lower 48 states and Canada. I also didn’t know that you grew up in India and Pakistan and came to the US at the age of 19, in 1974, I believe. The stories are all short, just a page or so, which I like, and are full of interesting thoughts and observations. Some I found very insightful and a few I would argue with, but all were thought-provoking. What I enjoyed most, though, was getting to know you, Rasheed. I think we first met back on Ryze, or at least we both started our social media experience there. I also had a venture into network marketing, a topic I’d like to discuss with you at some point down the road of life. Reading your book was a very good use of an afternoon (and I’m a slow reader). If you are reading this and haven’t yet read Rasheed’s book, I hope you will. I think you’ll find it very worthwhile.
