From the Inside Flap
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.

Using a basis of NLP he developed related techniques that can speed you in the direction YOU want to take. One overall read is required to get an idea of the whole process. Then a more deliberate step-by-step approach to put these ideas into action. But with the thorough self-evaluation that is built into the text, with check-lists and spaces to write your results, this seemingly complex process is made more manageable.
I have yet to read better book around self-development and achieving your dreams. Get it.
I have recommended this book to my students and my clients. This book should be the must have for anyone who wants more than they have right now.
This book is sure to be a best-seller. YOU WILL NEVER REGRET INVESTING IN YOURSELF BY BUYING THIS BOOK.
This book is jam packed with fresh ways at looking at time-tested techniques, as well as, completely new strategies for directing your mind. GET THE BOOK!
