Michael Port

Best-Selling Author of Book Yourself Solid and Beyond Booked Solid

Michael Port has written five bestselling books including Book Yourself Solid, Beyond Booked Solid, The Contrarian Effect, the New York Times Bestseller, The Think Big Manifesto, and, most recently, Book Yourself Solid ILLUSTRATED, an innovative and completely visual version of his seminal work, Book Yourself Solid.

The Boston Globe called him, “An uncommonly honest author.” The Wall Street Journal called him a, “Marketing guru.” Canada’s Globe and Mail said, “The world needs more Michael Port.” He  admits, as much as he focuses on results for the people he serves, rather than approval, this kind of recognition is really cool for a guy who was a C+ student in high school. He's thankful to receive it. 

He's blogged for the Huffington Post and has written monthly columns on sales and marketing for Entrepreneur Magazine and American Express Open Forum. He is a regular guest on MSNBC and has been on PBS multiples times along with CNBC.

He runs the Book Yourself Solid Mentoring Program serving business owners from all over the world and The Book Yourself Solid School of Training, which certifies consultants in the Book Yourself Solid methodology.

Currently, he is developing marketing and productivity software programs based on the ideas and strategies in his books. 

He didn’t start out as an author, speaker, and entrepreneur. He began as an actor. No kidding. You might have been able to pick him out of a crowd from his starring and supporting roles in TV and film projects like Sex and the City, Third Watch, All My Children, Guiding Light, Central Park West, 100 Centre Street, The Pelican Brief, Down to Earth, Last Call, The Believer, and more.

More important than just work, is how one lives their entire life. Michael Port blends his yoga teaching past with his martial art present—holding the rank of black belt in Aikido and blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. He has achieved his lifelong dream of spending most of his time on the water. He's a United States Coast Guard Licensed OUPV Captain and, if the temperature is above 45 degrees, you’re likely to find him on his boat cruising the Chesapeake Bay. He's got it tricked out with cell and wifi boosters so he can lead webinars, do videos and the like, as clearly as if he were sitting in the same room.

However, his most significant accomplishment and responsibility is probably just like yours, the job of being a devoted parent, son, friend, and citizen.

Book Yourself Solid: The Fastest, Easiest, and Most Reliable System for Getting More Clients Than You Can Handle Even If You Hate Marketing and Selling
A complete, easy-to-follow roadmap for starting and growing a service business that works: 93% of clients who have used the Book Yourself Solid system in Michael’s live seminars and intensive coaching programs have increased the number of clients they serve by over 34% and increased their revenue by over 42% within the first year alone. Even so, it’s so much more than an ordinary how-to manual for getting more clients and raising a business profile. Michael draws his audiences into a journey of self-discovery that leads to a major and necessary shift in thinking about marketing and sales: If you feel called to share a message—your work—it’s because there are people in the world who are meant to receive it. The proven methods Michael teaches have helped thousands of service professionals realize their dreams.

Beyond Booked Solid: Your Business, Your Way, Your Life - It's All Inside
Book Yourself Solid focuses on the first basic function of business development—marketing. Beyond Booked Solid: Your Business, Your Life, Your Way–It’s All Inside, focuses on the second basic function of your business—innovation. It will help you discover your capacity to innovate in your business. Beyond Booked Solid gives you the strategies, techniques, and tips you need to build a bigger, better business. It will inspire you to take action and help you stay accountable so you build the best business that’s best for you. And by the way, growth (a bigger, better business) can mean many things—bigger revenues, bigger profits, bigger operations. What it will mean in your business is up to you. Growth is a very different challenge from booking yourself solid.

Think Big Manifesto: A Personal Manifesto for Thinking Bigger About Who You Are and What You Offer the World
Most people operate from only a fraction of who they are and what they are capable of. Why? Because it can be confronting to express yourself boldly in the world! The desire for bigness causes problems for people. They don’t know how to create it for themselves. They don’t think they are capable. They don’t think it’s possible for them. Even those who are successful need support in thinking even bigger because we are never thinking as big as we possibly can. Michael Port, the leader of The Think Big Revolution and the guy to call when you’re tired of thinking small, has his audiences design a Personal Manifesto for thinking bigger about who they are and what they offer the world in an authentic, meaningful, and prosperous way.

The 7 Simple Rules for Producing Remarkable Projects
The building of a business is the successful completion of one project after another. If you want to be successful in business, you have to learn how to produce remarkable projects—projects that other people are able to remark on. Why? Because your projects are your marketing. Remarkable projects will build your identity in the world because you will become known for being able to fulfill certain kinds of offers. You might think of it as reputation building, but it goes further. It’s also business building and “you” building. Remark-able projects are emergent. The future is uncertain; therefore, we can’t determine a result—we can only create circumstances for navigating to a result. Michael’s seven simple rules for producing remarkable projects help the entrepreneur create circumstances for navigating to remark-able projects.

Create Information Products For Money, Image, and Success
During this presentation, based on Michael’s 90 Day Product Factory course—the most successful information product creation coaching program on the Internet—audience members learn how to create an unlimited number of information products on virtually any topic. To many, creating multiple streams of passive revenue and becoming known as a expert in their field may seem more like a dream than reality. But after Michael’s presentation, they’ll be only a few clicks away from hearing the beautiful, melodic, “ka-ching, ka-ching” sound of their website turned cash register as the orders come rolling in.

If you want to truly TRANSFORM the way you present and perform on stage, then you must attend learn The Michael Port Method. I’ve been fortunate enough to attend three of these event experiences, and they have been incredible. It’s really amazing to watch an average speaker become a powerful speaker right before your eyes. Michael works intensely (but lovingly) with each speaker bringing out the absolute best in them. It’s something you have to experience first-hand to believe. Whether you aspire to speak on stage or on video, this is a great investment in your future.

Deborah “Debbie” Marini

It just became overwhelming to realize that I actually may have the possibility – maybe even a responsibility – to help people on a bigger scale. It was so overwhelming! Your Mom and Dad were sitting in front of me and I leaned forward with tears in my eyes and said “You must be so proud of your son. He has changed my life today”. It was such a moment of completeness. A moment of clarity that I was, at that exact moment, right where I should be.

Ishita Gupta

Can’t describe the feeling of being at the event. Your show was off the chain. Brave, honest, emotional in a way I haven’t seen from our peers. So impressed.The stage time with you was priceless. I have great friends and mentors, but our collaboration – the way you gracefully navigated it – shows me how much of a pro you are. Humbled to see you do your thing. Your feedback was spot on and felt right and what I needed to hear. I’ll ping you and Amy for private coaching soon. Can already feel a difference in how I want to show up. KNOW that your gift works.Your show made a difference. I could feel it. People talked about it after. The way you did it – the reality and the showmanship. It wasn’t just your confidence and ability on stage, it was your charisma, your grace, and the very palpable intention to help every person there.For that, gratitude beyond and beyond. You took us to a new level up there. So much so that thinking small wasn’t even an option anymore. Thank you.

Dyan deNapoli

A HUGE “Thank you!” to you, Michael, for the amazing coaching you gave me yesterday morning. I’d never had any coaching before yesterday, and I know your insights and suggestions will transform my presentations. And while it was really nerve-wracking to have to rework my talk on the spot in front of 200 people (yikes!), you put me at ease and made it a very safe space to work together in. And an ENORMOUS “Thank you!” to everyone in the auditorium for all of the love and support you so generously offered. I could feel you all rooting for me the whole way! It really was an amazing experience.
