Powerful Experiences of an Aussie Maverick Building a Legacy

Waukesha, WI: The Power of I Am . . . So I Can”, a book by Iain Macfarlane, explores an almost unbelievable memoir of life experiences from sheep farming at age four to his business coaching career more than six decades later. Moving from the Australian Outback to being a CEO in the U.S. required discovering the life lessons from each of his incredible experiences and applying them to the creation of business tools and operations guidelines for results and legacy-building. This book shows you “How to Use Your Life Experiences to Drive Your Life’s Legacy”.

Working as a young child with a dog to herd sheep was about the power of delegation. Training at the East-West Center in Hawaii taught the importance of cultural, rather than linguistic, communication. Hitchhiking across Asia and India opened his mind to commercial choices to improve world economies. A PRESENT-FUTURE Mindset helped to forecast wins for venture capitalist-backed companies, as well as independent organizations from Heinz, to ACE Hardware, to Harley-Davidson dealers.  It may read like fiction, but it will leave you with the resources you need to build a real-life legacy of professional and personal prosperity.

Iain, a conceptual advocate in nature and in practice, resides humbly in Madison, Wisconsin with his wife of fifty years. Iain helps leaders work toward innovative, positive legacies; his adventures in business and worldwide relationships still continues today.

“I cannot thank you (Iain) enough for your vision and support, but most importantly, your friendship.”

- Jim Brandenburg, World-renowned National Geographic photographer, documentary film-maker,

And author of many best-selling books, including “Chased by the Light”

“As it applies to business, Iain is a tenth degree master in the art of business.”

Jason Huett, Kicks Unlimited Martial Arts
