Book Release | Make It Reality: Create Your Opportunity, Own Your Success...

As of late I've really been into reading and/or listening to nonfiction books by various celebrities and learning about the path that got them to where they are today. So when I got the press release for television producer Cris Abrego's book "Make It Reality: Create Your Opportunity, Own Your Success" I was really intrigued because it seems like the kind of book that has been up my alley recently. And because of that I thought that I'd share the details with the book with all of you in case any of you think it could be an interesting read like I do.

So here is the press release bit that intrigued me...

From Humble Beginnings To A Big Shot Reality
Cris Abrego, a son of immigrant Mexican parents from El Monte, CA, built an reality TV empire creating mega-hit television shows including: The Surreal Life, Flavor of Love, Rock of Love and Charm School. Now, as Co-Executive General Manager of Endemol Shine North America he shares his incredible journey of success in Hollywood through his new book, "Make It Reality: Create Your Opportunity, Own Your Success."

Abrego’s tell-all book, which now available, provides practical and motivating lessons collected from almost twenty years on the frontlines of television, including: how to visualize your goals and work tirelessly to attain them; when to take risks and push boundaries; and how to continually raise the bar for yourself and realize there are no limits on what can be achieved.

Abrego looks back on his humble beginnings in El Monte when he was only dreaming of doing something big with his life to his current days of working with the likes of Pitbull, Ryan Seacrest, Eva Longoria, Steve Harvey, George Lopez, Flavor Flav, Mario Lopez and Irv Gotti. "Make It Reality: Create Your Opportunity, Own Your Success" will give any reader the urge to take action, inspire creativity and take control of their life. Abrego proves that success isn’t about your pedigree or your connections; rather it’s about vision, leadership, and courage. He teaches that finding your overarching dream is the first step in achieving your goals.


Here is the description from Amazon:

As a young boy growing up in L.A., Abrego spent his formative years glued to his family’s TV set, forging his dream of one day working in television.  With unrelenting drive, he overcame countless obstacles to build his own reality TV production company in his garage, which, by his mid-thirties, he sold to one of the world’s largest television production companies, before being tapped as their co-CEO.
