    The Think Big Manifesto

    By Michael Port with Mina Samuels

    A New York Times Bestseller, The Think Big Manifesto is a personal manifesto for thinking bigger about who we are and what we offer the world, and it is a political manifesto for doing big things with others.

    Before politics became a bad word, it was, as Plato defined it, the process by which groups make decisions. This is a manifesto of collaboration. It is not about one person thinking big alone on the island of their dreams. It is about one person thinking big and showing others how to think big and so on and so on. In fact, inspiring others to think big is perhaps the single most important act of any one individual becoming a Big Thinker. Each newly-minted Big Thinker will necessarily bring more into the fold. To think big is to desire, above all else, to help others to think bigger about themselves and what they can do in the world. Thinking big is about coming together with other Big Thinkers to do big things in the world. It is about building a community of Big Thinkers.

    The Contrarian Effect

    By Michael Port and Elizabeth Marshall

    Sales is the most vital function in any business, yet traditional sales methods are outdated, failing, and in need of a serious makeover. The Contrarian Effect offers a counterintuitive approach to sales that’s more than just a novel idea—it really works.

    Michael and Elizabeth and explain how doing the exact opposite of the traditional sales wisdom, when done right, leads to better relationships and more sales. They debunk the traditional wisdom, piece by piece, and offer specific, actionable strategies and principles that help salespeople close more sales every day. The Contrarian Effect shows readers how to leverage the power of collaboration, build credibility through honest conversations, relate and listen to customers rather than just sell to them, realize that customers are smarter than most salespeople give them credit for, and attract them through “enthusiastic buying.” For anyone who wants to discover a new way to sell—and do it successfully—The Contrarian Effect is the first step in a new direction.

    The Referable Speaker

    By Michael Port and Andrew M. Davis

    You spend a ton of time building your personal brand to generate more speaking opportunities. You write a blog, record podcasts, post on Instagram, and upload to YouTube. You refine your speaking website, work on that book, participate in Clubhouse, and comment on LinkedIn. You share your expertise and insight freely. All of that hard work might get you one gig. And, unfortunately, none of those things will guarantee you the next gig. But what if you became a referable speaker?

    In this ground-breaking guide to building a speaking career, New York Times bestselling author Michael Port, co-founder of Heroic Public Speaking, teams up with bestselling author and world-renowned keynote speaker Andrew Davis to show you the fastest, most practical way to increase your fee and generate more leads. Discover precisely how event organizers select their keynote speakers, what you can do to win them over, and even how to set your fee.

    Port and Davis show you why you need to stop investing in marketing yourself as a great speaker and start investing in your speech. Because, unless you’re famous, event organizers won’t buy you (or your personal brand). They’ll buy your speech, then your idea, then you―in that order.
