There’s nothing ordinary about Michael Port, at least, according to his mother. But others seem to agree. Day to day, he runs one of the largest and most respected coaching programs for small business owners in the world at Booked Solid University.
Michael has been called “an uncommonly honest author” by the Boston Globe and a “marketing guru” by The Wall Street Journal. He is the author of four bestselling books including Book Yourself Solid, Beyond Booked Solid, The Contrarian Effect, and the New York Times Bestseller , The Think Big Manifesto.
He writes a monthly column on sales and marketing for Entrepreneur Magazine, another one for American Express Open Forum, is a regular guest on MSNBC and CNBC, and receives the highest overall speaker ratings at conferences around the world.
Michael didn’t start out as a author, speaker, and entrepreneur. He began as an actor. No kidding. You might even have been able to pick him out of a crowd from his starring and supporting roles in TV and film projects like Sex and the City, Third Watch, All My Children, Guiding Light, Central Park West, 100 Centre Street, The Pelican Brief, Down to Earth, Last Call, The Believer, and more.
Diverse in his personal life as well, Michael blends his yoga teaching past with his martial art present—holding the rank of black belt in Aikido and blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. With all this success, his most significant accomplishment and responsibility is probably just like yours, the job of being a devoted parent, son, friend, and citizen.
Michael’s mission to rally big thinkers – prospective, potential, wildly in-motion, and particularly bashful up-and-comers is officially in motion. He’s at the forefront of a movement of people that are starting personal, professional, societal and spiritual revolutions.
