I’ll cut right to the chase.

I’ve got a brand new book coming out on April 11th called Awaken Your Genius.

At a time when most people copy and paste what others are doing, I wrote a book to help you unlock your originality and unleash your unique talents.

I’m really proud of this book. (For the first time in my life, even my inner critic is happy!). The early reviews have been stellar. Here’s what Adam Grant says:

Pre-Order Now to Get Amazing Gifts

Here are three things you don’t want to miss:

  • If you pre-order the book before Tuesday, January 31st, you’ll get gifts worth up to 10x the cost of each book. Scroll down to see them.
  • If you pre-order the book by midnight EST tomorrow (Friday, January 27th), you’ll get 25% off at Barnes & Noble. Use coupon code PREORDER25 at checkout.
  • If you pre-order 2 books, you can download and read the ENTIRE book NOW, months before it’s published. More on that below.

Why Pre-Orders Matter

Pre-orders are everything in book launches. Retailers use pre-order numbers to gauge public interest in the book. The more pre-orders, the more visibility the book will get.

If you’ve been enjoying my weekly emails, pre-ordering the book is the best way to support my work.

Plus, by pre-ordering, you’ll get the gifts listed below. I hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I enjoyed putting them together.

You can order any version of the book (e.g., audio, e-book, hardcover, etc.) from any bookseller to be eligible for the gifts.

Remember: These gifts all disappear THIS Tuesday, January 31st.


Bonuses for Pre-Ordering 1 Book

If you pre-order 1 book, you’ll get a pack of 10, bite-sized, 3-minute videos that I recorded with life-changing insights you can put into action right away.

I was planning to put these videos in an online course worth at least a few hundred dollars. But I decided, for now, to give them away for free with a pre-order.

In the videos, you’ll learn:

  • My single best piece of advice RIGHT NOW
  • The secret to stop overthinking and start doing
  • A completely counterintuitive practice that the best thinkers use to generate original ideas
  • The one question you can ask to identify hidden time-sucks that clutter your brain and create overwhelm
  • Why you’ll never feel “on top of everything” (and what to do about it)
  • The surprising strategy that the writers of The Office used to boost their creativity (it’s weird . . . but it works!)
  • 3 secrets to actually remembering what you read
  • The one thing about me that surprises most people
  • Why there are stupid questions (and how to ask better ones)
  • Why comparing yourself to others is limiting your potential and stealing your joy (and how to stop doing it once and for all)

To get them:

  1. Pre-order 1 copy in any format at this link.
  2. Forward your receipt to [email protected]

Bonuses for Pre-Ordering 2 Books

All of the above PLUS:

#1. The digital version of the book, available to download and read NOW, before the book is released to the public.

You read that correctly.

Even though the book won’t be released until April, you can read it now.

Not just the introduction or the first chapter, but the ENTIRE THING. Months before the rest of the world has access to it.

This bonus is really special. Books don’t normally see the light of day before their publication date. This required lots of creative wrangling and negotiating. And the invitation will disappear promptly on January 31st.

#2. A 1-hour live, closed-door conversation with me. I’ll answer every single (reasonable) question that’s asked. If you can’t attend live, the event will be recorded so you can watch on your own time. You’ll also have the option to submit questions before the event.

To get these bonuses:

  1. Pre-order 2 copies in any format at this link.
  2. Forward your receipt to [email protected]
  3. Within 1 week, you’ll get access to the digital version available for all devices (including Kindle, Nook, iOS, personal computers, etc.).

Bonuses for Pre-Ordering 5 Books

All of the above PLUS:

  • Personalized Video Message: Want a personal pep talk from me? Or a birthday or special occasion message for a friend or family member? I’ll record a short video and send it to you.


  • Old Fashioned Thank You: A handwritten note from me, on fancy paper, snail-mailed to you, with one of my favorite quotes from Awaken Your Genius. I’ll sign and personalize the note to you. It’ll be suitable for framing.

To get these bonuses:

  1. Pre-order 5 copies in any format at this link.
  2. Forward your receipt to [email protected]

Bonuses for Pre-Ordering 10+ Books 

All of the above PLUS:

  • Wall of Fame: Your name (or your organization’s name) goes on the Wall of Fame on my website, with a link to your website or social media profile. I’ll also promote the Wall of Fame in one of my weekly emails.

To get these bonuses:

  1. Buy 10 copies in any format at this link.
  2. Forward your receipt to [email protected]

And remember: The pre-orders are discounted 25% at Barnes & Noble until tomorrow (Friday, January 27th). Use coupon code PREORDER25 at checkout.

P.S. I’ll have additional bonuses for bulk orders of 250+ copies. If you want a sneak peek at these once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, scroll down to the bottom of this page.
