Atlanta, GA — Got goals? Of course, you do! Whether you desire to lose weight, write a book, start a business, or anything in between, this book will inspire you to get it done! Dakota Jack, author of My 4 for 40, is helping motivate everyday people to do better, be better and improve their overall quality of life – forty days at a time!

Having battled depression for years, Dakota is brazenly familiar with the bitter side effects an unfulfilled life can bring. Fortunately, she discovered the overflowing joy that comes with having a sense of accomplishment – and a sense of purpose. Ever since Dakota started checking off a daily list of small goals, her life has positively changed. She can’t stop celebrating!

The plan/program Dakota created was simple. It focused on whole self-improvement, through goal setting and check lists; with a special emphasis on the number “4”. The results Dakota obtained, after just forty days, were astounding. Not only did she get within short reach of her primary weight loss goal, but she achieved so much more. The My 4 for 40™ plan infused Dakota’s life with success. It can do the same for you!

To take things to the next level, Dakota started working on a mobile application that would help users maintain focus and motivation, in order to continuously achieve short-term goals; using the My 4 for 40™ concept. Potential investors have already expressed interest! Hopefully, this life-enhancing mobile app will be available to the public soon.

Jack has also committed to funding four full scholarships to HBCUs, if the My 4 for 40 book sells more than 400,000 copies. Additionally, 4% of the 2019 profits from his book are being donated to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

“On the surface, I’m just another non-degreed, working-class, single mother of two. However, underneath that layer, I’m a goal digger – and I’m not ashamed to admit it.” – Dakota Jack

Dakota Jack is an intriguing, contemporary author from Atlanta, Georgia. She wrote and self-published her first book in 2012, entitled, I’m Not Pregnant, I’m Just Fat…Defeating Depression and Daring to Dream. Originally, the title was published under her birth name, Dedral Treadwell. It was later republished, in 2017, under the pseudonym – Dakota Jack. Within her debut memoir, Dakota revealed painful things about herself, most probably wouldn’t. She was refreshingly bold and transparent.
