  • Last summer I went on a trip to Atlanta and randomly bumped into Michael Hyatt. I told him I had his new book Platform on my reading list. (Truth is, my reading list is pretty long which means I can’t get to a lot of really great books). But in the short interaction I had with Michael, I decided to bump Platform to the top of my list. It was truly a game-changer and influenced just about everything about how I set up and approach this website. I’d have been lost without him! You don’t need to meet Michael Hyatt in order to benefit from his experience and knowledge. Here’s a link to his book: http://astore.amazon.com/thoufortheeve-20/detail/159555503X
