Step Out on Nothing
[how Faith and Family Helped Me Conquer Life's Challenges]Audiobook CD - 2009
Byron Pitts chronicles his story of overcoming a childhood filled with obstacles to achieve enormous success in life. Throughout Byron's difficult youth-- his parents separated when he was twelve and his mother worked two jobs to make ends meet-- he suffered from a debilitating stutter. But Byron was keeping an even more embarrassing secret: he was also functionally illiterate. For a kid from inner-city Baltimore, it was a recipe for failure. Pitts turned struggle into strength and overcame both of his impediments. Along the way, a few key people "stepped out on nothing" to make a difference for him. Through it all, he persevered, following his steadfast passion. After fifteen years in local television, he landed a job as a correspondent for CBS News in 1998, and went on to become an Emmy Award-winning journalist and a contributing correspondent for 60 Minutes--Container.
