L. Leonard Taylor was exposed to travel early in life by parents, both public school educators, that spent free summers towing him and his siblings around the country. Lawrence, as he is better known, left Detroit in the late 1970s in search of an identity beyond his city borders with a stint with the U.S. Navy. He became an avid chronicler of his travels to foreign lands in letters to family and friends. His frequent writing drew just enough praise to inspire him to develop storytelling skills of fiction and non-fiction.
A miraculous transformation propelled Lawrence, with a growing family, into a career in telecommunications delaying his inevitable commitment to writing. In 2005, Lawrence began searching for a method of transforming his life with writing at the core of his desire to change. In recreating his earlier self-styled transformation, Lawrence was able to identify six definitive steps in his effective change method and a process to identify a meaningful purpose at the core.
Lawrence is a student of human transformation and a believer of, finding and living on, purpose. “Finding my purpose was akin to washing off the window I'd been looking through that was covered with dirt. Living with meaningful purpose is not only possible, but is essential for raising humanity's collective consciousness.”
Lawrence is a father of three and grandfather to seven. He loves hiking and swimming and travels for exposure and constant change. Lawrence is captivated with observing others transform their lives and has a penchant for developing business opportunities. He believes that love, exposure and an open mind are of greatest value to personal development. Lawrence’s declared purpose in life “is to build and broaden bridges over the gaps that separate people,” because he strongly believes “anything that separates people, is not in humanity’s best interest.”
