An Amazing Day


Thank you. In the first day of release, The Impact Equation has received over 100 reviews, almost all of which are 5 stars.

Thank you for your support, your attention, and your help in making a book like this succeed. Chris and I could not have done it without you.

Beyond anything else, it really goes to show that you can really bring people together if you are giving, helpful, and deliver value again and again.

I hope that I’ve been able to help you by writing this blog. If you’re new here, I look forward to being able to deliver more as time goes on. I have lots left up my sleeve. :)

Writing here is actually one of the most rewarding parts of my career, in this little internet box. :)

If you have not had a chance to pick up the book yet, I hope you’ll pick it up today. Click here to order it, and thank you for taking part in making this an amazing week for us.

Thank you.

P.S.: Here is an amazing review that was created by Keith with some help from the book. It’s a great example of how amazing content helps you stand out.

    Congrats to both of you on the success, it’s truly more than deserved. It’s taking me a while to get through, its jam packed :). I’ll gladly review when I’m finished.

    The number of reviews on launch day still blows my mind! You should see if Amazon could tell you what the record is for a single day. I wouldn’t be surprised if The Impact Equation just raised the bar.

    Thanks also for including a link to my site and review. I had a lot of fun making it. If you look closely, you’ll see that the book background I used actually has a lot of subtle differences than the real one. To get it to work right, I built the my own yellow and white background in Illustrator and then added the zoomable text in Prezi. Just a fun little tid-bit of went into it.

    Congrats again!

    Hi Julien,

    I am glad my advance purchase copy got delivered to me here in Germany a little ahead of it’s promised date.

    Good stuff in there…. Some things I was already sort of planning and tossing around, you guys re-primed my pump. In fact, I visited your blog here because of the comment on page 177, about “offensive” material.

    Congratulations to you both and I look forward to reading whatever else you have put out / will put out.

    Thanks again,
