Meet the Author


John Lawson, founder of 3rd Power Outlet and ColderIce Media, started his first business while still in high school. Later in life, John discovered how profitable online selling could be, and his company 3PO was born. Just five years later, it brought in $1 million in sales. To date, 3PO’s 300,000-plus transactions have garnered more than $25 million.

Mixergy calls Lawson a “power seller.” American Express hawks him as their “featured businessman.” Startup Nation says he’s the “savviest” in social media, and Small Biz Trends named him “Influencer of the Year.” He is an award-winning social media strategist, spokesperson for several corporations, commercial television personality, and a sought-after keynote speaker and instructor.

Debra Schepp is the author of 19 books, including How to Find a Job on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Google+, eBay PowerSeller Secrets, and How to Make Money with YouTube. The Washington Post named her YouTube book among the top 10 business books of the year.

She has been interviewed many times by national media, including LIFE Magazine, Forbes, and Entrepreneur magazine. She has also appeared on many radio shows and her work has been featured in publications such as Newsweek, The Chicago Tribune, Parade, and LIFE Magazine.

As a former editor for McGraw-Hill and Gartner Group, she has been writing about living and working online since the 1980s.
