"Over the years at my SANG conferences, I have had the good fortune of having people like Tony Robbins, Paula Abdul, Peter Guber, Jack Canfield, to Tony Hsieh of Zappos. What I have observed about superstar achievers is they tend to do things that separate them from their competitors. Michael is the real deal, and truly lives his message. In Michael Alden's new book 5% More, you now have the blue print to get more out of life and business by just doing 5 percent more."
Larry Benet, Chief Connector and Cofounder of the SANG Thought Leader Network, 25 Professional Networking Experts to Watch in 2015-Forbes
