In this swift and exhilarating narrative, Doug tells the astonishingly true story of his remarkable journey from generational poverty to wealth independence. Doug Wallace and his seven siblings barely survived childhood, fleeing in the night from landlords, scrambling for food, and burning down the only house they ever owned to collect insurance money. Doug unflinchingly reveals the painful experience of class prejudice and life on the fringes of society. Yet even as his family continued to slide deeper into poverty and despair, Doug found comfort in meditation and prayer.
In Everything Will Be All Right, Wallace digs deeper into the class barriers faced by generational poverty victims, combining personal anedotes and compelling personal experiences to cut through the layers of ambiguity and bias which functions in ways to hold back the impoverished. Doug recounts his own decisions, mistakes, and daily struggles to make the right choices for himself, his career, and his family.
Wallace’s story of self transformation is a compelling reminder to readers that it is never to late to achieve wealth and happiness using ordinary skills most people take for granted.
