About the author (2005)

Steve Chandler is a powerful motivational speaker who used his expertise to write his first book 100 Ways to Motivate Yourself: Change Your Life Forever. The book, which received the 1997 King Features Syndicate AudioBook of the Year Award, teaches interested individuals how to remove the barriers that keep them from realizing their dreams. Believing that anyone can become a highly energetic, super-motivated person, Chandler uses real-life experiences from such personalities as Arnold Schwarzenegger and Leonard Nimoy to prove his point. After the success of his first best-selling book, Chandler wrote Reinventing Yourself: How to Become the Person You've Always Wanted To Be to help people break down negative barriers and let go of pessimistic thoughts.

Sam Beckford has shared his successful business strategies and philosophy with thousands of other small business owners. The pair also wrote 9 Lies That Are Holding Your Business Back and The Small Business Millionaire.
