Press Release

updated: May 29, 2018

Recent release “From the Outhouse to the President’s Chair” from Covenant Books author Robert L. Bliss is a remarkable true-to-life narrative describing the rigors of overcoming the pitfalls and obstacles in everyday and professional life with a positive attitude and the assistance of surprise mentors.

Robert L. Bliss, a native of Adrian, Michigan and now resides in Charleston, West Virginia. Having two degrees from Adrian College and one from Michigan State University, he has had an exciting career in business and higher education.  Having been president of four corporations and a wide range of positions in higher education, including one college presidency. At five other corporations, beginning in a consulting role, he was asked to assume the position of CEO to reverse severe financial difficulties.

Robert shares, “The caller on the other end of the line introduced himself as the president of a national headhunting firm. He invited me for lunch later that week to discuss a possible college presidency. The man, and his demeanor, prompted me to accept the lunch offer, but there were a lot of questions going through my mind. First, do I really want to make a change again? Second, why is the college seeking a new president, what are the challenges? At that point I didn’t have the name of the institutions, so it wasn’t possible to do a little advance research. Life was good right now with National Merit. Anything beyond my current position would have to be exceptional. Although, at the back of my mind was the recurring dream of one day becoming a college president. Maybe this would be that opportunity, and maybe not.  Waiting has always been difficult for me and this week was not an exception.

Readers will get to know Robert Bliss, his success story, and his positive mindset will rub off on them as an inspiration of perseverance, optimism and determination to succeed.

“From the Outhouse to the President’s Chair” may be purchased at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble.
