Make a Difference: From Being Successful to Being Significant
“If you are ready to achieve a higher level of success and happiness, then read and absorb the strategies in this brilliant book by Ron and Michael!”
♦ James Malinchak, founder of www.bigmoneyspeaker.com
♦ Recently featured on ABC’s hit TV show “Secret Millionaire”

“We need more books like this. Terrific story and a short read (which I like!). Both a counter-intuitive and powerful look at the principles that simply and easily take the reader through the actions that drive both personal and professional success.”
♦ Dr. Tony Alessandra, Hall-of-Fame Keynote Speaker and author of The Platinum Rule

“I learned more from this book than I did many college textbooks on philosophy. And the best part is that it’s a delight to read (unlike the textbooks). It’s more like taking part in a conversation than reading a book, making its lessons both more practical and accessible at the same time.”
♦ Carl Dickson, CEO, CapturePlanning.com, LLC

“The best investment you can ever make is in yourself. Ron’s book is full of valuable life lessons within stories, that will help you take your life and the ones around you, to the Next Level”.
♦ Dr. David Vik – Former Coach Zappos.com & Founder/Author – The Culture Secret.

“This book makes you think about your life – the way you live it. It focuses on the good form of self-interest and how you develop personally in the lifelong learning environment that is there today.”
♦ Jens Graff, Associate Professor, Solbridge International School of Business

“These 9 simple laws will get you where you are going at warp speed.”
♦ Rick Barrera, CEO, Author of Overpromise and Overdeliver: The Secrets of Unshakable Customer Loyalty

Michael lived in China for six years, Thailand for five years, and Vietnam for one year before returning to North Carolina. He’s a reading junkie, a bicycle nut, an avid hiker, and an NFL addict.
