作者簡介

Adam Chiocca was born in New York City, and was raised on Long Island, through age five, then grew up in Plymouth, Massachusetts, and Bedford, Massachusetts. He graduated from Bedford High School in 1995, and then went to Penn State University, graduating with a B.A. in Theatre Arts, in 2000. In 2009, he earned his first Master’s from Northeastern University, and then in 2014, earned a second Master’s from Northeastern. At the time of this book’s publication, Mr. Chiocca is in his 15th year as an ELL/ ESL Teacher. Adam and his wife, Maimuna, are the proud parents of two boys, Abraham and Aaron. Adam is now on a great mission to change the world, and so goes forth with faith, courage and confidence.

Last year, in 2019, Adam wrote and published his first book, 50 Days to a Better Life, and enjoyed appearing on several TV morning talk shows, while on a 3-month nationwide book tour, through 30+ major American cities, starting from Boston, driving across America, to Los Angeles, and back. He was featured on NBC, ABC, and Fox affiliates in Memphis, Tennessee (ABC 24, WATN), Palm Springs, California (Palm Springs Today, KMIR NBC 6), Baton Rouge, Louisiana (WGMB Fox 44), Birmingham, Alabama (Good Day Alabama, WBRC Fox 6 News), and Augusta, Georgia (WJBF ABC Fox 6 News). Adam was also interviewed for a longer segment, at KABB Fox 29/ WOAI NBC 4, in San Antonio, Texas.

In this, his second book, Adam courageously shares his vision for the company he’s building. He has decided to advance confidently in the direction of his dreams, which is to be a late-night talk show host, just like his idols, Johnny Carson, Jay Leno, and David Letterman. Adam enjoys comedy, and singing and dancing, and has envisioned how he can build an entertainment/ media empire around him, so as to provide jobs for thousands, and to provide more opportunities to young people of color, and underprivileged youth. While building his good, mission-driven, entertainment/ media company, he has also developed a grand plan to build 14 Hip Hop dance studios in 14 major American cities. The plan is to build them in Boston, New York, Philly, D.C., Baltimore, Atlanta, Charlotte, then up to Chicago, and Detroit, then over to Los Angeles, and back to Houston, Memphis, Birmingham, and Jackson, Mississippi.

Adam credits Wayne Dyer with saving his life. In 2018, Adam finally acknowledged he had a drinking problem, and was suffering from anxiety and depression. The tears and the pain were powerful, and yet, through the teachings of Wayne Dyer, Adam was able to discover his soul. Realizing the spirit within was paramount in Adam’s recovery. Adam realized he could help others to change their lives, and so then wrote the rough draft to his first book, 50 Days to a Better Life in about two weeks. The words poured out, over the next few months, as Adam realized that Wayne Dyer was also right about co-creation. God, and the universe, are active participants in what we create. Adam practices daily meditation, and credits meditation with being central to his recovery. From the depths of despair, Adam learned what you should do with your life, if you really want to be happy, and that is to give it away. Being in service to others, Adam learned, is one of the keys to living an inspired life.

Adam loved singing and dancing all through high school, and through college, and then in New York City, when he tried to become a big Broadway star, following college. The dream didn’t come true then, but it never died. Adam realized another key to happiness, and that is to go after what you really, truly want. Adam feels total joy when he’s singing, dancing, and entertaining, and hopes that you enjoy his sense of humor, which he knows he inherited from his mom.
