About the Author

Wendy Lipton-Dibner is known internationally for her uncanny ability to move people to action. President and Founder of Professional Impact, Inc., she works passionately as a speaker, author and consultant, helping her clients avoid the frustration of failure and the tragedy of a life half-lived. An expert in organizational and personal development, Wendy wakes up every day excited about knowing precisely what she wants and how to make it happen. But she didn't start that way. Wendy spent 30 years searching for the unique impact she could make in the world, reinventing herself over and over. She added layers of education, certification and skills until she had amassed a wealth of knowledge and experiences, all the while searching for answers to the questions: Who am I and what do I really want? Wendy's passion for the stage led her to perform in vocal and theater productions. Her lust for knowledge propelled her to do graduate work at Duke. Her love of teaching prompted her to serve as a university instructor. Her talent for research brought her to conducting organizational research - publishing her results and presenting to the U.S. Senate. Her entrepreneurial drive compelled her to build a full-service spa where she broke industry standards for retail sales. Her deep desire to make a difference drove her to volunteer for non-profits, receive certification as a psychotherapist and open a private practice, and then to purchase a motivation franchise where she set world records for sales and customer service. Then she found it - the career that would allow her to do everything she loved while making a significant impact on every life she touched: She combined her unique set of knowledge and skills into practical and inspiring programs for people worldwide via in-house training and public events. Wendy helps people make exponential changes in record time. Her high-energy, entertaining style, coupled with her powerful strategies for motivation, alignment and differentiation have enabled tens of thousands of people in small businesses, Healthcare and Fortune 500 organizations to dramatically increase productivity, collegiality and revenues. When Wendy speaks, people change. They change what they do, they change what they feel and they change what they get. Visit Wendy online at www.ShatterYourSpeedLimits.com.

More About the Author

WENDY LIPTON-DIBNER, M.A. is a 3-time bestselling author and internationally recognized authority in business development through effective impact and ethical influence. President of Professional Impact, Inc. and founder of The Action MovementTM, her unique strategies for business design, content marketing, sales and leadership have helped clients increase revenues exponentially by creating measurable results for the people they serve.

A music and theater major, Wendy shifted gears when she became fascinated by the social psychological factors that move people to action. She received her Masters Degree in sociology and social psychology from Duke University and while presenting her research at an academic conference, was recruited for a position as a university instructor and director of organizational research studies. Her research led to an invitation to present at a high-profile committee hearing at the United States Senate. Her presentation influenced a decision that has since served millions of people and the experience led Wendy to question whether her work was allowing her to make the impact she truly wanted to make.

Wendy decided to leave her research position at the university to open her own business. She had no idea how to launch (let alone operate) a business, but she typed up a proposal and brought that, along with her hand-drawn napkin design and tons of enthusiasm into her local bank.

The bank gave Wendy a $50,000 loan to open a full-service styling salon to be used as a social laboratory for business growth. Wendy applied her social science background to develop and test formulas that would move people to action and within 3 months, her retail and service sales skyrocketed well beyond industry standards. In only 3 years, she became a sought-after consultant and trainer for small and mid-sized businesses, sharing the formulas she'd created for sales, leadership and customer service.

Driven to make a more lasting impact on people's lives, Wendy sold her salon, got certified in 3 schools of psychology and built a private practice specializing in sales professionals. Her proprietary blend of psychotherapy, sales and leadership training helped her clients dramatically increase revenues and led to a swell of invitations for consulting and training for Fortune 100 organizations where she became known for creating measurable results in record time.

Seeking to grow her impact even further, Wendy purchased a franchise from Success Motivation Institute and sold their motivational programs as an add-on to her training. By the end of her first 30 days, she became their U.S. Sales Leader and volunteered to teach "competitors" her success secrets. That was the game-changer for Wendy. As she stood on that stage, looking out at her first international audience of over 5000 entrepreneurs, Wendy discovered her passion for using platform speaking as a tool for collaborative impact.

Since then, Wendy has delivered thousands of customized training and consulting programs in healthcare, Fortune 100, small business & non-profit organizations and spoken for hundreds of thousands of entrepreneurs around the globe. A sought-after media guest and keynote speaker, her bestselling books are required reading at businesses and in medical and dental schools and her Move People to Action Live Event and E-Course has been named, "The most comprehensive training ever created for impact-driven professionals."

Wendy serves as a trusted advisor and coach to doctors, executives, entrepreneurs & top influencers, helping them make an impact on every life they touch. She loves the time she spends with her clients - almost as much as the precious time she shares with the love of her life and business partner, Dr. Hal Dibner and their 4-legged son, Parfait.

When people come to me wanting to `get organized,' I know that usually there are deeper issues at play---issues of personal change that need to be solved to make things fall into place. Shatter Your Speed Limits addresses those issues and will enable my members and readers to get to the heart of the matter. Great questions for anyone to ask yourself about life and what's holding you back! I am excited to tell everyone how to shatter their speed limits so that the organizing advice we give can take root in the best possible way.

Wendy Lipton-Dibner has helped me shatter my own speed limits. She hired me for marketing advice, but soon I was asking her to coach me! Her advice helped me quickly double my sales, took my tennis game to a new level, and even improved my marriage. Her formula is simple but profoundly useful for anyone who feels stuck and wants to soar to new heights in any area of their life. Don't just read this book. Do what it says!

Shatter Your Speed Limits is truly a life-changing book! Wendy Lipton-Dibner speaks to the heart of everyone who realizes that time is money and that speed is a critical criterion for success. With her powerful Action Formula in hand, we have all that we need to break through barriers and move into high gear so we can achieve more in less time with maximum satisfaction. The dialogue in Shatter Your Speed Limits is brilliant and draws us into the story. We are more than observers - we participate in the characters' quests for success. Leaders of any size organization need to grab a copy and give it to every employee and then bring it home to their families. Bravo!

BRILLIANT BRILLIANT BRILLIANT! Like David, I 'downloaded [this] for later' years ago and am finally reading it today... you wrote it so I could GET IT (!): stories, examples, diagrams! GOSH, what a GREAT WAY to TEACH these steps! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!

Omg... just finished, tears streaming down my face... I have read self-help book after book, gone to therapy, listened to teleseminar after webinar, talked at lennnnngth with friend after friend, journaled for decades (and I'm thankful for every bit of it(!), yet NOTHING, nothing helped to unlock me - and aid my understanding of why I still haven't accomplished my hundreds of dreams - like this miraculous document you penned.

My deepest, most heartfelt gratitude to the author for writing it!!!.

As I started to read this book, I was confused. I thought SHATTER YOUR SPEED LIMITS, FAST-TRACK YOUR SUCCESS AND GET WHAT YOU WANT IN BUSINESS AND YOUR LIFE was a nonfiction book. It looked like a nonfiction book and is titled like a nonfiction book.

Yet from the first page, the reader is plunged into the life of three friends--Chelsea, Lisa and David. Their friend Ted is missing from their meeting. Eventually these three friends learn that Ted isn't coming back to their company but has taken his life in a completely new direction.

Each of these friends is stuck in a life situation. Through teaching from Ted, each one changes life directions.

Wendy Lipton-Dibner pulls the reader into her teaching using the story material. As the friends grow and change, the reader learns new tools for their own life. The writing is excellent as Wendy spins a great story. If we are honest, many of us are stuck in some area of life. If you use the principles in this book, you will SHATTER YOUR SPEED LIMITS. I highly recommend this book.

When I finished the book, I spent much time soul searching and realized that I had set speed limits, many of them imposed on me as a child, that I hadn't given much thought, before now. Since then, I've started - and completed - several projects that I had never had the courage to take on before. Wendy Lipton-Dibner's book will help anyone examine what it is that's holding them back, where it came from, and what they need to do to get over themselves.

What was I waiting for? Wendy helped me to see that I had the ability to just go do it.

Her action formula worked for me. A good read and potentially life changing if it touches you the way it touched me.

This book is a refreshing read, to learn the concepts in story format. As a psychologist, I easily recognized the solid theoretical constructs and understandings upon which the book is based. If you do the work and follow the formula, you will not be disappointed.
