About Michael Port

Michael Port is the best-selling author of Book Yourself Solid, Beyond Book Yourself Solid, Book Yourself Solid Illustrated, The Contrarian Effect, and The Think Big Manifesto and has been called an “uncommonly honest author” by the Boston Globe.  His latest book, Steal the Show: From Speeches to Job Interviews to Deal-Closing Pitches, How to Guarantee a Standing Ovation for All the Performances in Your Life, is all about learning to play the right role for every situation, motivating, informing, and persuading others, just by being yourself!

If “All the world is a stage”, why not write your own part?

Interviews, public speaking, sales pitches – these can all be super-intimidating.

Most people don’t really look forward to them. That’s a given.

But, what if you had a proven strategy for summoning the confidence you know you need to get the results you want?

Michael has taken his experience as a former stage actor, the experience that has allowed him to walk into the roles he most wanted in his life, and has built a system for others to follow so that they can do the same.
