Michael Port books

Bestselling author

I've been called an "uncommonly honest author" by the Boston Globe, which made me proud, and a "marketing guru" by The Wall Street Journal, which is kinda cool, I guess. But seeing that I can't stand the guru-izing of self and business help authors, kind of embarrassing at the same time.

I've written 5 bestselling books including Book Yourself Solid, Beyond Booked Solid,
The Contrarian Effect, and The New York Times Besteller, The Think Big Manifesto.

As featured in:

  • The New York Times
  • The well street jurnal
  • The boston globe
  • CNBC
  • INC
  • Entrepreneur Magazine
  • ... and others

Professional Speaker

I appear regularly on MSNBC and work hard to receive the highest overall speaker ratings at conferences around the world. I speak on marketing, sales and thinking big.

Please know that when you choose me as your keynote speaker, you won't be getting a vanilla sugar cookie. You will, however, get a slightly irreverent, usually funny, surprisingly knowledgable, compassionate and passionate performer who hits his mark every time and leaves his audience a little smarter, much more alive, and thinking a heck of a lot bigger about who they are and what they offer the world. Email me for booking info, rates and more.
