My new book, Living Forward, just hit #6 overall on Amazon. I can't believe it! It doesn't officially come out until March 1. You can still pre-order here and get over $350 worth of free bonuses: http://buff.ly/1VNsXKo

New Blog Post: Why I’m Putting Ebooks on the Shelf for 2016
--------------------
I decided to go back to physical books for 2016. I used to be a voracious reader. My pace was about a book a week, sometimes more. But that all changed in recent years.
Even though I firmly believe that “leaders are readers and leaders are readers,” I have found myself reading fewer and fewer books with each passing year.
My goal for 2015 was to read twenty-six books. I ended up only finishing reading twelve. Worse, I actually bought 106 new books.

I could barely contain myself when the truck arrived. It’s finally here!” I said. The second the boxes were unloaded I opened one up. I couldn’t believe it. I was holding a copy of my new book, Living Forward!

Like any author, I was excited because holding that book represents years of work for me and my coauthor, Daniel Harkavy. But there’s another reason for my excitement. I know this book is going to change lives.

New Blog Post: Why I’ve Brought Comments Back
------------
A year ago I decided to pull comments from my blog. I did it as an experiment, but I was pretty convinced it was the right thing to do.
Then I wasn’t so sure. After a while, I missed comments. Still, I decided to stay with it for at least a year and measure the results.
Well, the results are in.

Introduction
I am a professional blogger and speaker.

I am also the author of the New York Times bestseller, Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World (Thomas Nelson, 2012). This is a book for anyone trying to create visibility for themselves, their product, service, cause, or brand.

I have spent most of my career in the book publishing industry, most recently as the CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishers, the seventh largest book publisher in the United States and the largest provider of inspirational live events in the world. I currently serve as the company’s Chairman.

I now devote my time to writing, speaking, and consulting. My blog is the top leadership blog in the world. I have written seven books. My podcast, “This Is Your Life,” is one of the top ten business podcasts on iTunes.

I have been happily married to my wife, Gail, for thirty-four years. We have five daughters and seven grandchildren. I live outside of Nashville, Tennessee. In my free time I enjoy reading, running, and golfing.
