Prepare for the future from the inside out.

How keen is your self-knowledge? Who influences your understanding of others? When was the last time you really concentrated on your purpose, your resilience, your perspective? And what in the world is polvo?

In Control, Influence, Accept(FN), author Dan Moore guides you on an antic journey of self-reflection with a very serious goal: to help you cultivate your inner-self who will be ready for whatever the universe throws at you—the obvious and the odious.

From his days selling books door-to-door in the Arizona desert to trying Portuguese delicacies under the watchful eyes of his would-be in-laws, Moore has lived a life just on the edge of the ordinary . . . and he has extracted extraordinary insights from every colorful experience. In hilarious, everyman language, Moore describes his own inflection points and shows you how personal growth will help you get through when getting out simply isn’t an option.

In a world where the only constant is change, Dan Moore thinks you owe it to yourself to set positive patterns for the one and only asset you can actually control—you. No one knows what the future holds. Your best preparation is in the self you bring along.

About the Author

A New Mexico native, born and raised in Los Alamos, Dan began his career in 1974 with the Southwestern Advantage sales and leadership program while attending Harvard University. Moore paid his tuition by selling Southwestern Advantage products door-to-door. Upon graduating from Harvard with honors at the age of twenty, Dan was promoted to district sales manager. He continued his academic success by obtaining his MBA from Owen Graduate School of Management, Vanderbilt University, where he was an honors graduate and class speaker.

Among other roles with Southwestern Family of Companies, Moore served as SWA vice president of marketing and was credited with modernizing the company’s sales school, product line, and mission. In 2007, he was named president of Southwestern Advantage, where he served until retiring in January 2023. Over the course of his forty-nine-year career, Dan has trained over 100,000 people on how to lead, sell, and achieve their life goals. His greatest advice for students is, “Have a why that’s focused on a cause that’s bigger than yourself.”

Dan is a frequent lecturer at colleges and universities across North America and Europe and has traveled to fifty-nine countries. He has served as an adjunct faculty member at Owen Graduate School of Business and has hosted TEDx Nashville.

In his spare time, Dan plays guitar and piano. He prioritizes health, fitness, and yoga. Dan completed twenty-four half-marathons after age fifty-one and the New York City Marathon when he was fifty-six, finishing in the top half of 46,000 runners.

Dan and his wife, Maria, currently live in Nashville, TN.
