How To Build a Piano Bench

Lessons for Success from a Red-Dirt Road in Alabama

Ruthi Postow Birch

A Humble Philosophy for Great Success

“Get an education, get off Petain Street, and amount to something.” These are the words that Ruthi Postow Birch’s father said to her when she was a little girl living on a red-dirt road in Pritchard, Alabama, a town that straddled the poverty line. And that is exactly what she did. How to Build a Piano Bench is Ruthi’s humorous and heart-warming story about growing up in southern Alabama, the life lessons she learned there, and how she applied that knowledge to build a successful business in Washington, DC. Full of anecdotes and advice on how to make both your strengths and weaknesses work to your advantage, this wonderful story will inspire and delight anyone who has ever had a dream to be something bigger than what they are.

Ruthi Postow Birch is a successful businesswoman, author, and speaker who has made people her life’s work. In 2001, she founded Ruthi Postow Staffing, recruiting temporary and permanent employees for business in the DC area. She is the mother of three boys and currently lives in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia, with her husband, Ron, their Wheaten terrier, Mr. Magoo, and a family of chimney swifts that return every spring to nest in their 18th-century chimney.
