'A Man Makes His Own Luck' by Daniel Younghusband

'A Man Makes His Own Luck' is the next step in a lifelong journey towards achievement and big goals. In spite of being legally blind, a Type 1 diabetic, and being born with a rare form of dwarfism, Daniel has led a full life; from growing up in Africa with plenty of adventures in the bush, to immigrating to New Zealand at the age of 18 with his family. He doesn't believe 'disabilities' should hinder anyone from achieving their goals or ambitions. Coming after building Paua by Dan, a successful microbusiness creating beautiful paua shell and fine silver jewellery, he hopes this collection of his own life lessons and overcoming obstacles will inspire others to push themselves and make their own luck in life.
