Defining moments often happen after we are done with all of the planning and right in the middle of a purposeful pursuit. As a result of these experiences, we learn from our struggles and find the courage to change. In Volume two of the Ten Toes Down Series, twelve authors share their defining moments with purpose, change, growth and courage. The saying Ten Toes Town is often used to describe a willingness to stand strong and do the tough work for greatness in any area. Each contributing author fearlessly pulls back the veil and gives an unfiltered glance at the growing pains that come with a defining moment. Collectively, they share wisdom that can help any person find the joy of pursuing their purpose no matter how hard it may seem! The Ten Toes Down series was created by Trey Ford, who is dedicated to assisting others create, build and expand any vision or idea. This project is personal for Trey as he continues to create platforms for the arts and serve in the community. Each participant was hand selected after completing a masterclass at the weekly Culture Lounge in Jacksonville, Florida at the historic Cookbook Restaurant. He believes that standing Ten Toes Down is the only way for success. Trey has locked arms with some of the most influential figures of Northeast Florida to promote unity and empower others to stand firm and go hard to achieve any goal!
