Book Review by Bo

John’s books are always very inspirational and full of outstanding advice from the standpoint of a successful business leader as well as coach, trainer, mentor as well as a motivational speaker. Many of his books have such great amounts of advice and useful information it’s hard to not rate his material with 5 stars and suggest to get your own hard copy for both your private and business library.

John writes his materials using his abundant years of experience as a business leader and equally important from a Christian point of view, as he is not only a solid business leader, but is also a Pastor and fellow Christian. He sends the message of and practices what he “preaches” because he is a serving leader and not a self serving one.

He practices and stresses being a mirrored image of the type of person your followers can look up to and he constantly is helping develop other leaders and team members to allow them to constantly grow and improve.

John is one who shares his wealth of knowledge and is a very inspiring person both as a business leader and as a Christian, father and all around friend.

I hope my review of his book helps answer any questions about his material and please feel free to ask about any of his books, as I have all of his literature. I’m a very solid fan and believe in his works as being reliable sources of material for any business leader or person wishing to improve themselves or their team.
