"This book gives you an actionable plan for how to be more productive. If you're sick of all these books that talk and talk about incoherent ideas and then give you no way to take ACTION, then this book is a must read for you. I've read all the top authors in the personal development category, and the thing that Chandler and James do BETTER than the like of Carnegie, Tracy, Canfield, Ferris, etc.. is that they GET TO THE POINT. They don't just write words for the sake of fluff.This book is pure gold, and if you read it you will take away at LEAST three points on how to be more productive..GUARANTEED!" ~Darren Boulton
"I've read A LOT of material on productivity. Everything from scientific journals to quick "5 Things To Do...." to everything in between. When I first opened the ebook I really was expecting a laundry list of tips and tools and for it to be useful in a couple areas, but that was about it. BOY WAS I WRONG.... and I'm really glad I was. The Productive Person is a true plan for hacking productivity in a way that creates longevity and gives your new routines staying power. The authors present you with everything you need (including example schedules), but then leave you to commit to the changes. NO BS list of 10 tools here that you will abandon in 3 days.
On top of the content, it's a quick read (like 40-something pages) that could be done in under an hour, minus a couple thought provoking questions they pose to you. Useful, concise, blunt but entertaining. What more could anyone wanting to make some changes in this area ask for?" ~Josh Winkles
About the Author
Chandler was bitten by the entrepreneurial bug at an early age when he saw that he could make a lot more money working for himself. While his friends were off searching for jobs, he was out starting businesses.
He began early (age 11) by selling his personal snacks at scout camp and, by age 17 he hired his friends to help him operate his landscaping business that earned him $10,000 for college. All in all, by age 20 he started and ran over $320,000 in businesses.
During this time, he taught other college students to run their own successful businesses and received the "Entrepreneur of the Year" award from Young Entrepreneurs Across America.
Chandler now speaks to students across the country teaching them the lessons he's learned as a young entrepreneur and encouraging them to take the entrepreneurial leap.
James has been an outlier his entire life.
Brought up in a small town where most of his peers truly embodied the "small town" mentality, James was always looking for ways to grow. A rule-abiding rebel growing up, James continuously found ways to push societal limits as far as he could, just out of curiosity.
When he was a sophomore at The University of South Carolina, he started his own painting business with Young Entrepreneurs Across America and over the next 3 years progressed up the executive ladder to become the first YEAA executive in the state of SC.
After one year of college, James left his general manager with YEAA role to pursue his ultimate passion in life: professional speaking. Leaving guaranteed revenue streams behind, with little money in the bank, James began his professional speaking career.
Within 6 months he was booked for collegiate orientations and multiple leadership conferences, and - oddly enough - he even created a personal growth workshop for a local theater's apprentice program.
James now has the privilege of traveling the country sharing messages about positivity, Gen-Y, peer leadership, productivity, and much more.
