About the Author

As the best-selling author of three books focused to assist business professionals in becoming more productive (The Power To Get In by St. Martin’s Press, TEETH, Does Your Value Proposition Have Any? by Forward Publishing Group, and Accelerants by Penguin Group/Portfolio) Michael A. Boylan has had a successful career spanning over 20 years in the development and writing about best-in-class, step-by-step, productivity-enhancing processes which Fortune 500 organizations have embraced and adopted for their business professionals because the content has produced measurable results for the employees and their employer organizations.

Appearing on CNN, CNN-FN, Bloomberg Financial, ABC News, Fox and Friends, and other network television interviews, and being awarded one of the highest-rated keynote speakers Microsoft Corporation has ever hired to address over 6,000 attendees at its largest global event, World Fusion, Michael’s highly anticipated fourth book, Reach For Me, The Story of My Son Connor, is destined to positively impact the lives of the more than 35 million parents, families and related caregivers of special-needs children in the U.S. alone. With a 20-year track record of developing step-by-step processes that have helped people enhance their lives, and as the single father of a special-needs child himself, Michael has set forth to help the millions of parents and families of special-needs children of any diagnosis via the step-by-step process known as The Connor Principles, to help caregivers better manage all the hills and valleys that will come at them over a lifetime of caregiving.
