From the Inside Flap

What invisible boundaries come between people and their dreams?

Isn't the playing field the same for everyone?

How can ordinary people break away from the pack?

Why do some people enjoy phenomenal success in everything they do?

In Turning Passions into Profits, Chris Howard, a leading authority on personal influence and effectiveness, helps readers break through boundaries to achieve wealth and power. He gives eye-opening insight into the playing field and the rules of the game of life, and provides innovative techniques and concrete tools for expanding the playing field, rewriting the rules, and winning the game.

Each individual's personal rule book is based on learned behavior and personal experiences that shape his or her perspectives. Turning Passions into Profits helps readers recognize and overcome their stifling, self-imposed rules and limitations and move toward a more fulfilling and rewarding future.

"Change your focus and take charge of your life" is Howard's mantra. He provides actionable techniques to get readers on the fast track from today's frustrating status quo to tomorrow's infinite possibilities. This inspiring, empowering book includes thought-provoking exercises to complete and strategies to incorporate into every facet of life, including Creation Technologies, modeling, Strategic Visioning, building teams and rapport, and communicating with power. Readers learn about six hallmarks of powerful communications that influence people and special techniques to inspire confidence.

For years, Howard has studied the lives and characteristics of a diverse group of people, some from quite ordinary backgrounds, who became extraordinarily successful, including Bill Gates, Richard Branson, Warren Buffett, Donald Trump, Rupert Murdoch, Oprah Winfrey, and Nelson Mandela. He zeroes in on common characteristics and shares his insight to help readers learn from and emulate the strategies of the masters.

Turning Passions into Profits is part practical, part philosophical, and all-powerful. It's not a one-time read; it's a lifetime reference for those who want to quickly close the gap between where they are and where they want to be.

From the Back Cover

—Garry Janson, host of The Wealth Creator Radio Show

"As a direct result of Chris's unique approach, I have restructured my entire business and lifestyle. I now no longer feel overwhelmed. Every skill learned and applied compounds the results I see. I have profited as much as $500 thousand in a single day and have seen a net result of more than $2 million."
—Phil Anderson, former Mr. Australia and owner, Five Star Fitness Centres

"You can't afford not to know this information. I think this should be required reading in every business school in the country. These are the skills that guarantee success."
—Robert Shearin, MBA and multimillionaire investor

"Chris Howard is to wealth and leadership what Tony Robbins is to motivation¿Chris has become one of the leading speakers all around the world."
—Mark Deo, host of The Small Business Hour on Los Angeles's 97.1 FM, CBS Radio
