"A well-crafted reminder that we can be heroes if we only dare to serve."
Brigadier General Stacey Hawkins, USAF
"We need heroes! The kind who flash powers of courage, humility, and service. The kind willing to sacrifice for the greater good. In Heroes Wanted, Rodney gives us the playbook for this new perspective of leadership. Ambitious and inspiring, Rodney's insight helps us see that just when things seem to be spinning out of control, heroes rise to the occasion. A leader for such a time as this!"
—Dan T. Cathy, Chairman and CEO, Chick-fil-A, Inc.
"In his book Heroes Wanted, Rodney Bullard touches our heart and awakens the hero that is within each of us. With God at the center, he discusses the seven C principles that inspire our heart to do good, helping by word and deed those who are far away or maybe only 'three feet in front of us.' Heroes Wanted has a long shelf life, for after each chapter there are questions, mostly faith-based, that challenge us individually or as a group to contemplate the inspiring material that is before us. Thanks, Rodney—you did real good!"
—Coach Vince Dooley, Former football coach University of Georgia (1964-1988), athletic director (1979-2004)
"Heroes Wanted is an amazing book and a well-crafted reminder that we can be heroes if we only dare to serve. Rod Bullard lives this mantra every day and we are blessed that he's challenged us to do the same."
—Brigadier General Stacey Hawkins, USAF
"Have you ever considered answering an ad that says, Hero Wanted? That's exactly what Rodney Bullard is calling each of us to do!

You can be sure the long-term benefits will exceed any pension plan you've ever seen...a hero's legacy extends for generations! And, the best part? You can start today!"
—Mark Miller, Chick-fil-A, Vice President, High Performance Leadership, Coauthor, bestselling books The Secret: What Great Leaders Know and Do and Chess Not Checkers: Elevate Your Leadership Game
"This book is filled with heroic stories that build a compelling formula for instilling a guiding light of hope in others—written by a hero who constantly inspires me."
—Steve Reinemund, Retired Chairman and CEO, PepsiCo, Former Dean of Business, Wake Forest University
"Rodney Bullard is the rare one—a highly regarded corporate leader who ushers us toward inner awakening and the transforming power of faith. His Heroes Wanted gets to the heart of the dilemma we all face at times: how to break through the life-limiting barriers of doubt, fear, and conformity, and extend ourselves with confidence in every area of our life. His strategies and stories demonstrate how positive beliefs propel us toward our goals and can make us a powerful force for social good. Heroes Wanted inspires that can-do spirit, the courage and conviction needed to succeed in life and know that we are human and divine, the sacred link between heaven and earth."
—Susan L. Taylor, Founder and CEO, National CARES Mentoring Movement @CARES Mentoring, Editor-in-chief emerita, Essence magazine
"Rodney's message in Heroes Wanted is that every single person has value and every single person needs help. I've made it from the trailer parks in Georgia to the red carpets of Hollywood because of the heroes who have invested in my life. Now my passion is to do the same for others. They say that 'helped people...help people'—and that's what Heroes Wanted is all about!"
—Rachel McCord, celebrity model; author of Slay the Fame Game: How to Break into Hollywood & Social Media Without It Breaking You
