an inspiration… another guest post

I’ve spoken MUCH of Michael Hyatt and Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World in recent days.  This book has changed my thinking about my blog… my book… my platform.   I’m not alone.  The web is buzzing with the news of Michael’s newest release .

Yesterday, I invited Katherine in to share her thoughts on this book.  She shared her heart beautifully and her post was well-read by you.   Thanks for reading!

Today, I want to share one more review of Michael’s book with you.  Meet Tammy.  Tammy is wife, mother, daughter and friend.  I’m thankful to call Tammy a new friend of mine.  Here are her thoughts on Michael’s book….

incidentally… I’m guest posting at Tammy’s today, if you’d like to come over when you are finished here.

Michael Hyatt is an inspiration. If you’re not familiar with him, he writes about intentional leadership on his blog, which has hundreds of thousands of followers. He knows what it takes to share his message, and build a tribe of followers.

That’s why I was excited to read his new book, Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World. If there is anyone who can effectively teach us about getting our message heard, it is Michael Hyatt. He has done it well, and is graciously offering his insight in his new book.

“For the last five years, if I ever had a question about platform building, social media or standing out amidst the clutter, I turned to one place-Michael Hyatt. As an author who turned a blog into a book and made countless mistakes along the way, I couldn’t get my hands on Platform fast enough. Michael Hyatt has written THE handbook to one of the biggest cultural revolutions in the last fifty years.”

-JON ACUFF, Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author of Quitter

The great thing about this book is that it is not just for writers or bloggers. Artists, musicians, creatives, business owners, and anyone with a message to share, can gain critical, behind the scenes advice. Similar books may give you the motivation and inspiration to try something new. However, they rarely give you the practical steps and every possible resource to make it happen.

If you’re like me, you may have mixed feelings about the word platform. It has been used poorly by some people, and it can also seem somewhat self-centered. Michael had some great advice to help us understand the benefits.

1. A platform provides visibility – it makes it possible for everyone in the audience to see you.

2. A platform provides amplification – It enables you to be heard above the roar of the crowd.

3. A platform provides connection – Social media now creates engagement and intimacy that has never been possible before.

When I read this book, I felt like I was given an insider view to Michael’s success. He seemed like a friend sitting down and giving me every incredible resource to help me move forward. In fact, there is so much information in the book that you will most likely keep this as a reference manual to refer back to again and again. I am reading through the book for the second time, and I will continue to come back to it after I have completed the previous steps.

Not only is Michael sharing his incredible insights, but for THIS WEEK ONLY, he is also giving you over $375.98 in bonus gifts! Who can say no to that? The book itself is worth ten times its price. This is an incredible deal.

Make sure that you purchase the book before midnight on May 25th in order to get the bonus gifts. I promise it will be worth it!

“Michael Hyatt has given much of his professional career to helping others achieve their potential. And he helps others by pioneering a way and then teaching people his way. In Platform, he’s accumulated the best of his counsel and advice. If you’d like to expand your influence, read Platform and then read it again.”
