Jonathan Charest - Mobile, AL

Fantastic book! I read one book each week and this book, by far, is on my list of the best.

"Fantastic book! I read one book each week and this book, by far, is on my list of the best. Such great transformational information that has an immediate affect. So many great concepts that are applicable today. I have highlights on almost every page. The tenants in this book is the missing piece of my business transformation. It has been an inspiration to read it. Thanks for having the courage to go through your own transformation and for having the willingness to write such a great guide...Many blessings to you and yours."

I can not tell you how much I enjoyed your book. I couldn't put it down because it was exactly what I have been trying to express to others, but couldn't find the words...

"I recently attended your presentation at the RBC expo in Chicago. The presentation was wonderful and I can not tell you how much I enjoyed your book. I couldn't put it down because it was exactly what I have been trying to express to others, but couldn't find the words, and thought it was wrong thinking because it goes against everything this business has taught us. Having my business partner read it next."

Joan Masover - Fairfield, Iowa

I want to THANK YOU so much for your wonderful book, and for the inspiring presentation I saw in Cedar Rapids last May. The book helped bring that inspiration meaningfully into my life. We're buying a couple of copies of the book for clients and prospects who've requested it - including the owner of a very successful local business, who felt that the principles you outlined apply to business and life in general, as well as to investing. Smart guy!

I found your book to be very powerful, thought provoking, moving, and inspirational. The list can go on and on. I have to admit there are things that I read that have become part of my normal language while sitting down with new clients. Bottom line -- Great Read!!

"Wow! Your presentation yesterday was fantastic. I'll admit, when Herb introduced you and raved about it being one of the best you'll ever see, I was skeptical. No more. You deliver an amazing message with passion, conviction and flawless presentation skills. It is infectious and resonates long after you finish. I just wanted you to know how much I appreciated it. Thank you for feeding my soul."

Best overall presentation I have ever heard. It hit me where I needed it and pumped me hard. Absolutely outstanding! Best two hours of my career. I would like a copy of this that I could show to my clients.

This is the best presentation I've heard since I had the pleasure of spending eight hours with Nick Murray in a wholesaling class! The positivity... very inspiring. I would like to see a longer presentation - a whole day!
