The first-time author recently published the story about lessons from his father, United Franchise Group Founder and CEO Ray Titus, and how those fundamental principles shaped his approach to business, leadership, and what he values most.
“The goal is to pay it forward,” says A.J. Titus. “The 18 lessons are quick but direct on things that help you and things I have reflected on my entire life. “The List” has motivated me since I can remember, and I decided that if I could write something that could help others, including my daughter, I wanted to do it. I want to give back to her the same way my dad gave back to me.”
A.J. Titus’s father, Ray Titus, has served as his son’s role model in work and life.
“‘The List’ grew from me sharing important basic principles about life, with my growing family, to now A.J. sharing it with everyone. He has taken it to a whole new level,” remarks Ray Titus. “Seeing “The List” through A.J.’s eyes has opened mine to how these simple lessons enriched our time together.”
