Are you Ready to Reject Middle Age? Get Started with FINDING ULTRA Pre-Order Giveaways!

So excited to finally announce the launch of my new website for FINDING ULTRA !  

www.findingultra.com

First, a HUGE shoutout of gratitude for the eminently talented team at Sandbox Studios  — the boys that put in the long hours to make this happen.  James Gilbert, Reis Paluso and Marshall Caswell, I thank you for your design aesthetic, tireless coding and attention to detail.  Simply put, you guys rule.

Check out the site and let me know what you think in the comments section below .

Sure, the site is cool.  Downright awesome, in fact.  Have you ever seen a website for a book that is this cool?  I haven’t.  “But so what?  What’s in it for me?” I hear you ask.

Actually, quite a bit.  If you are struggling with weight, declining health, fitness — or most importantly, feel disconnected from your “true self” and  dreams long ago abandoned  — lost or flatlined without a roadmap, tools or inspiration to take your life back, then this is just the thing for you.   A PERSONAL WAKE UP CALL TO ACTION.  

Let’s be honest.   I would really like you to pre-order the book.  In fact, the book’s success depends on it.  But more importantly, I’m simply passionate about going wide with my message – a message I know and trust has the power to catalyze and sustain personal change and growth.  Why?  Because I’ve seen it happen.  Not just in myself, but in many people I have worked with over the years.  Powerful tools for life transformation and sustained, continuous personal growth that have revolutionized the way I live my life.

If they worked for me, then believe me they can work for you too.  

Are You Ready to Reject Middle Age?

“The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.  What is called resignation is confirmed desperation.”

– Henry David Thoreau, Walden (1854)

True then.  Even truer now.  Unfortunately, we live in a society in which we have completely lost touch with what truly moves us – our most “authentic” selves overwhelmingly discarded in favor of playing by the rules.  Doing what’s expected of us.  Who we were meant to be and what we want out of this short life — in the truest sense of these phrases — hasn’t just been de-prioritized; it’s been eradicated altogether.  Countless lives hijacked by fear, wasted and decaying in office buildings and cubicles just so we can pay the bills.  Living for the weekend, we reward ourselves with time wasted on a rotunda of empty (and all too-often fear-based) distractions we call entertainment.  Immersing ourselves in mind-numbing media, poisonous food, consciousness-altering substances and unhealthy relationships to ease the pain of our collective dissatisfaction, we further disconnect ourselves from our fellow man in favor of Siri.  Then impulsively spend money on products we can’t afford in a desperate attempt to fill an empty hole of discontentedness that just grows deeper.  A vicious cycle that over time becomes so entrenched, we feel powerless to change, ultimately losing hope.  Too many of us just give up altogether, resigned to live the rest of our days in numbed disillusionment.  The Matrix, it seems, is actually real.

No wonder we’re pissed.  I was.  But I found a way out.  And you can too.  Let me take you there.

Are You Ready to Discover Your Best Self?

On it’s surface, the book will show you how to radically improve your diet, revive your health and unleash your inner power with more vitality and enthusiasm than you thought possible.  And to be sure, it will motivate you to get up off that couch – with tools to start moving your body, retrain your mind and connect with your soul purpose.  It will inspire you to dust off that latent goal that has been nagging at the back of your mind far too long — maybe as long as you can remember.  And galvanize a plan to finally bring it to life.  But the book is so much more than that.  Seamlessly woven into the narrative is a roadmap to unleash your own true self.  A catalyst to re-discover what — deep down inside — truly moves you.  Inspiration to uncover those abandoned dreams deferred.  And unleash your personal power to pursue and achieve the happy and authentic self dormant within all of us that yearns to not just tolerate life, but celebrate it with a full embrace.  

Join me.  And let’s break free.  Together.

Ready to begin?  Let’s do it.  Here’s more than a few totally killer limited-time offer incentives to get you to act now.

FREE PLANTPOWER SEMINAR: 100 books is a lot to ask.  Of anyone.  So guess what?  I will come to you to perform a live speaking engagement at a location of your choosing – your local bookstore, school, corporation or multisport club/retailer (travel & accommodations not included; I will sign all pre-ordered and purchased books on site). And of course, all attendees will also receive a free copy of our JAI SEED eCookbook and Meditation Program as well.  At the current online book sale price of $16.49, all this will cost you only $1,649 (and possibly less due to certain bulk order discounts) — a paltry sum for a speaking engagement, let alone 100 books.  Pool resources among friends to buy the books, take care of the travel, then charge admission for the seminar if you like — and keep all the proceeds.  I have no doubt you’ll end up profiting in the end.  Think about it.  Then DO IT.

Of course, smaller orders make for great gifts — particularly for Father’s Day, which is right around the corner.  The perfect motivation dad needs to get off the couch and into gear.  Not to mention that personally signed copies make for a unique and nice personal touch.

If you happen to run (or be employed by) a mid-to-large sized corporation, this book will make great gifts for your employees or co-workers.  And with over 50 appendix pages bursting with plant-based nutrition and fitness information, it’s the ideal book for every company all the way up to Fortune 500’s looking to buttress their corporate wellness programs, improve the health and productivity of their workers and slash long-term health care costs.  And to sweeten the pot further, in such cases I will make available free copies of our JAI SEED eCookbooks and Meditation Program to all your employees, free of additional charge.

Not a CEO?  Convince your boss to make the investment in the bulk book purchase and you reap the reward.

In return for all of the above offers, I only ask one tiny favor:

PLEASE REVIEW THE BOOK ON AMAZON

I’m not asking you to write a good review.  Of course, I would love that.  Only asking you to call it as you see it as soon as you have had a chance to read it.  The number of reviews posted on Amazon is very important in terms of raising the book profile, influences retailer orders and  positions the book for long-term viability.  So just be cool and follow through on this for me.  Appreciated.

How does all this work?  

It’s easy.  Just e-mail your proof of purchase to  [email protected]  — forward the receipt you get from your on-line retailer of choice (see right hand margin of this page for links) and we’ll follow up with you for your mailing info and fulfillment.

For any questions concerning bulk orders, please e-mail [email protected].  Discounts may be available.  Appearances booked in 2012 based on availability.  Travel/Accommodations not included.

Thanks for helping make my dream a reality.  May this book help you in the manifestation of your own dreams.

If it does, then I’m a happy guy.  And that, my friends, is the whole ballgame.
