Michael Port

To say today’s guest “is the man” would be an understatement. Here is his *very* official bio:

Called “an uncommonly honest author” by the Boston Globe and a “marketing guru” by The Wall Street Journal, Michael Port is a New York Times Bestselling author of four books, including (Amazon links below):

Book Yourself Solid – the mega bestseller now in it’s second edition;
Beyond Booked Solid – which Tim Ferriss said is a must read if you want a 4-hour workweek;
The Contrarian Effect – which was selected as one of Amazon’s top ten business books of 2008; and
The Think Big Manifesto – which is guaranteed to help you think bigger about who you are and what you offer the world.

Michael can be seen regularly on MSNBC and receives the highest overall speaker ratings at conferences around the world.

I invited Michael on the show today to really get to know the man behind the brand. How did this all happen? How did he build a brand and create his amazing career? What are some of the untold stories?

Enjoy the interview with Michael and, as always, welcome your thoughts, questions, and feedback below.
