Publisher's Summary

USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestseller.

Founder and CEO of Blue Air Training LLC, James “Chef” Barlow sparked a multi-billion dollar industry that didn’t exist, and the first fully weaponized, civilian-owned, airborne training provider in support of the US Air Force was born.

Blue Air, now a global brand, paved the way to a new frontier in contracted airborne services, and leads as the gold standard for national defense. The Boy Who Grew Wings is the incredible true story of a boy who wanted to become a fighter pilot, conquered stage-four cancer, raised two boys as a single military dad, and his battle against all odds to make his dreams come true. Dreams do come true. Through it all, James never forgot the mission or his dream. He used those circumstances as rocket fuel to motivate him to overcome any challenge or obstacle thrown at him until he crossed the finish line.

Failures and setbacks don’t define you; James considers everything that he overcame a blessing that forged him into the man, father, husband, and leader he is today. Your mistakes, setbacks, and failures don’t define your worth or your potential - your dreams, talents, unwavering determination, and grit, ability to pivot and solve worthy problems - all while expending the necessary energy and effort to see it through represent the true value of a person.

The torch passes to you. Do you possess a dream deep inside of you that refuses to leave you? Do you have the gumption to see it through, no matter what, and focus all of your energy to manifest it like James did with his dream? Then listen on, and let’s find your true north together.
