Because I do advisory work, run seminars, and do paid speaking gigs in the world that I write about, there are inevitable conﬂicts. I have friends in some of the organizations that I discuss in this blog, as well as in my books and on the speaking circuit, and I have run seminars or advised some of the companies mentioned in the blog.
When there is a potential conflict, I will call it out at the bottom of the post like this.
Prior to starting my own business in 2002, I held the following full time jobs:
I almost never review products (such as software) so please do not ask.
I occasionally review books on this blog. However, I receive about 50 books for every one that I review so your chances of a review are very small. I know what it is like to write a book and to hope for reviews. The issue is that I just don't have time to read all the books sent to me. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
I occasionally post a book review on Amazon that does not appear here.
Important note about my Amazon reviews: All my Amazon reviews are five (or occasionally four) stars. This is because I'm too busy to read a book I don't like -- there's just so many great books waiting! If a book doesn't capture my interest within a few chapters, I put it down and don't finish. And because I won't review a book I don't finish, all my reviews are of books I've enjoyed and get a lot of stars.
