“Val Hale’s new book, Seven Keys to a Purposeful Life, is a must read. Each principle is profound and impactful, and I look forward to applying these principles to business as well. Having known Val Hale for many years as an iconic leader in locations ranging from universities to regional chamber to the helm of GOED Utah, I can attest that he is a living embodiment of the outcomes that these seven keys represent. I will return to this book many times.”

“Here’s what I learned from ‘Living a Life That Matters: You don’t need money to be happy, to forgive, to be gracious, to be kind and to build amazing relationships with those you love.  Val’s 7 Keys will unlock the windows of heaven.”

“It’s about time that one of my favorite and most exemplary people shared his personal formula for a successful life!  Val’s unsurpassed class, dignity and selflessness–especially in the face of setbacks–makes his wisdom in these pages all the more invaluable. A ‘quiet professional’ with the stealth of a Navy Seal, Val is often observing in the background, trusted by everyone, and ensuring the success of others’ missions. That’s why he is a sought-after leader. His timely and personal message is profoundly universal, yet simple. This is a must-read book for anyone seeking o make the most out of every minute, personally and professionally!”
