Overview

Ninety-nine percent of the world's success goes to those people who find the courage to pursue their dreams with everything they have. We do not believe that success is somehow reserved for the smartest, most talented, best-looking or even the luckiest. We believe that the likelihood of your achieving your goals and aspirations is a direct function of the heart and will you bring to the pursuit.

This book will help you reflect upon your potential. We do not patronize with the bromide "you can be anything you want to be." The truth is that there are some limitations and factors beyond your control. Still, what everyone can do is maximize the likelihood of our success. In other words, we can take steps to improve our chances.

Each of us has enormous upside potential. Our observation is that most people aim too low - not too high. Far too many people underestimate their potential and the heights to which they can climb. We hope this book will find its way into the hands of such people, and that it will inspire them to reach a bit higher.

Jim Randel, a graduate of the Columbia University College and Law School, has made his living as an entrepreneur. During his 30-year career, Jim has been the lead investor in many real estate and business deals.

Jim has been a guest speaker at Harvard and NYU Business Schools, annual conventions for national organizations, and investor sessions in every large city in the United States. He has also appeared on numerous networks as an expert on investing. Recent engagements include ABC, CBS, Fox, Fox Business and BetterTV.com.

Throughout his career, Jim’s passion has been to teach and write. His first book, The Real Estate Game (CCH), was published in 1986 and received national recognition from investors and critics. From 1988 to 1990 he was a daily commentator on the Financial News Network (now CNBC). In 2006 he wrote Confessions of a Real Estate Entrepreneur (McGraw-Hill) which reached #1 in several Amazon categories.

In 2008 Jim founded RAND Publishing which, under the imprint, The Skinny On™, publishes a revolutionary line of illustrated non-fiction books.

The first book in this series, The Skinny on the Housing Crisis, was awarded First Prize in the prestigious Robert Bruss Real Estate Book competition sponsored by NAREE, a group of 600 journalists who cover business and finance. This was quickly followed by 7 more titles: The Skinny on Willpower, The Skinny on Credit Cards, The Skinny on Success, The Skinny on Real Estate Investing, The Skinny on Direct Sales, The Skinny on Time Management, and the newest in the series, The Skinny on Persuasion.

Jim lives and works in Westport, Connecticut with his wife Carol. They have four grown children and two grandchildren.
