Subscribe to My Podcast and Get a Free Copy of "The Choose Yourself Stories"

I just sort of released a new book. It’s not on Amazon. I might never put it there. Or maybe I will in a few months. I don’t know.

That said, I think it’s the best thing I’ve ever written (well…equal to “Choose Yourself!”, it’s more like a companion guide to that book).

How can you get it?

If you subscribe to my PODCAST ON ITUNES and then send an email to with the subject line “Podcast Subscriber” then it will automatically be sent to you.

It contains more of my raw stories than my advice-driven stuff although I like to write both.

Here’s the table of contents. I hope you listen to my podcast and then get the book and read it and love me because I like to be loved.
