About the author:
Jerome Mayne hails from a small catholic farming community in East Central Minnesota.
Other than finishing high school 1985, he hasn't really completed much else. At one point, he secured a 21 month prison sentence and didn't even finish that (time off for good behavior).
Since high school, he had a kid, got married, had another kid, got divorced, went to prison, got out, had another kid, had cancer, lived, got married again and gained a step-son.
Somewhere in the middle of all of that he entered the world of real estate finance. A few years after electing himself CEO of the two companies he founded, the wheels came off and his world dropped to the bottom of society. He was arrested for his involvement in a white collar conspiracy that stemmed from his entrepreneurial climb.
Adversity, some self imposed and some not, has trailed him throughout much of his life. Surviving cancer, while in prison was probably the most challenging. Needless to say, he has a few stories to tell.
He is now a highly sought after keynote speaker on the topics of ethics in the workplace, fraud, white collar crime, and overcoming adversity. In short, he helps people make the right decisions, and stay out of prison.
He has spoken for such groups as, the National Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, Wells Fargo, FannyMae, Met Life as well as other Fortune 500 companies and professional associations.
He has written over two dozen articles for business publications and has appeared on national media programs sharing his life experiences.
On a side note, Jerome is an accomplished singer, songwriter, pianist, stand-up comic, improv comedy instructor, a hand model and commercial actor. He released his first album, Once Around the Sun in the 1990s.

In his intimate diary, Jerome Mayne shares his life saving lessons of ethics, morality, trust and humility, with wit and passion.
In his 20’s, Jerome was an aspiring finance professional on his way to the top. With his new family and his sights set for success, the world was his oyster. Lured by the prospect of big business, his career derailed when he joined forces with his future co-conspirators in a real estate scandal.
The nightmare begins with a hurricane of FBI investigations, criminal court and prison. His journey twists and turns through the psychological collapse of prison and cancer.
Through it all, one woman's undying devotion helps him climb back from the hollow existence of defeat, shame and self-pity, to a life of integrity, trust and self confidence.
This book is a real life lesson in corporate ethics and a story of overcoming adversity by finding comedy in the middle of a nightmare.
