Don’t you love meeting remarkable people?
You know, the kind of person that you exchange a few sentences with and immediately know you’ll be inspired by. You tell your friends about them later, not sure exactly what it was about them that impressed you so much.
I make an effort to surround myself with this kind of person because I’ve gained so much from them in the past. Just by living their lives they make me work harder and push myself to achieve more, to be happier, to live a fuller, richer life.
Over the years I’ve picked up a lot of useful pieces of advice from these people, while at the same time observing and trying to figure out what makes them tick. I’ve worked to apply many of these same lessons to my own life and have seen very positive changes as a result.
I wrote this book to share some of these tidbits of knowledge with everyone because I firmly believe that if the world has more inspiring, ambitious and remarkable people we’ll all be a lot better off.

Update: November 25, 2016
I’ve been making my living as an author, full-time, for nearly 7 years now. This book, and another one about personal branding, were the catalysts for that professional trajectory.
I had no idea what I was doing, but the satisfaction of creating a finished product, particularly via a channel that typically only allowed for transient-feeling posts and the like, was immensely satisfying. I got hooked. I also recognized that there was a wave headed our way (‘our’ being bloggers) in the form of Amazon’s Kindle. It was around at this point, but only barely. It wasn’t taken super-seriously just yet, and was mostly used to publish pulp fiction. I swam in the ‘affiliate marketing and PDF book’ pool for a little longer after writing my first real, paid book, but switched over not long after that.
