Gary Laney reached #1 Amazon Best Seller with his new book, “The Power of Strategic Influence! 10 Success Factors of Highly Influential Leaders.” The book, from MindStir Media, has received positive feedback from readers, reviewers, and even highly regarded entrepreneurs.
This positive reception was enough to propel the new release to the top spot on Amazon’s Business Management, Systems & Planning, Strategic Management, Business Systems & Planning, and Strategic Business Planning category Best Seller lists.
Shark Tank’s Kevin Harrington not only endorsed the book, but he also wrote its foreword and recorded a video endorsement of the book, which was posted on YouTube. In the video, he says, “If your goal is to rise to the top of your company or industry, you should pick up a copy of The Power of Strategic Influence.”
In addition to Harrington, Laney’s book received a glowing review from John T. Hewitt, the founder of Jackson Hewitt. Hewitt said, “Gary has created a fascinating look at what makes people happy and successful.
Most important is the concept of building and using influence to achieve your goals. A positive mental outlook and accepting personal responsibility should ring true for all of us. What you think and believe shapes your attitude and your future.”
The Power of Strategic Influence contains interviews with twelve well-known CEOs to teach readers how to build their personal influence on business and make a positive impact on the business world.
The book posits that the focus of strategic influence should not be what you get, but what you give. It teaches how to access, utilize, develop, expand, and ultimately constructively use your influence to help make the world a better place.
This people-first mindset only makes sense given Laney’s background of success as a CEO. Laney is the CEO of Success Masters, and he’s a previous high-tech executive and serial entrepreneur.
A dynamic speaker, Laney has motivated tens of thousands of entrepreneurs, business professionals, and salespeople. Before his entrepreneurial run, he spent 25 years as an executive in corporate high-tech and commercial publishing and became known for his ability to turn around businesses and create dramatic revenue growth.
