Top 10 Book Recommendations

I’m a voracious reader. I’m also an entrepreneur. These books have recently helped me with everything I do. I hope they can help you too.

4 Simple Ways to Make Your Blog Amazing

My full name is Christopher Guy Dessi. I love 80’s hair bands, the movie Goodfellas, brunettes, and black Lamborghini’s. I hate when people shush me, glitter, pleated pants, and math. When I was in fifth grade I passed a note to Danielle Bennett and asked her to meet me behind Lakeview Elementary so I could kiss her. She responded with an enthusiastic – “That’s gross.” Why am I telling you all this? Because building your personal brand is all about getting personal. Offering some insight into your personal life is essential for success in building a rock solid personal brand.

Russell Adler

There are many attorneys out there. Russ isn’t like any of them. That’s mostly why he’s my attorney. He’s the high hat of the beat. The bass player in the band. The dude that’s a little quirky, and always intriguing. I think these differences are why I’m drawn to Russ. They’re the reason why he has become more of a “consigliere” to me than hired gun. He’s the real deal. Genuine, grounded and a new kind of attorney with a new kind of approach to success that I thought worth sharing. I think you’ll agree.

Raymond A. Sanseverino

Today I have a special treat for you. Ray has been gracious with his time, his answers, and his life story. Ray inspires me. I’m sure he’ll do the same for you. Enjoy.

Dennis Simmons

This dude is fascinating. His life and the way he lives his life has inspired me. The way he shares his success and supports those that he loves is exemplary. He’s just one of those guys. I love him. You’re gonna love him too. Wait until you read about Dennis’s Grandson Reese. Read on, and enjoy.

Sheila Haile: That thought does not even cross my mind. I don’t believe you are a success until there is nothing left to do. And there is so much more I want to do…in all phases of my life. I don’t feel like I’ve accomplished the big one yet.

John Dokes

For John Dokes, CMO of AccuWeather it’s all three. Talent, smarts and good looks come naturally to John. I hate guys like that. But I just can’s find it in me to hate John. But sometimes I can get irked. A few weeks ago my wife and I had just finished listening to the “John Dokes Quintet” at a Jazz club called Kitano, and I was angry. I approached John after his set and berated him.

The One Surprising Time It’s Acceptable to be Naked at Work

So I was in this, co-working law firm-ish looking office’s conference room. I was starting to feel self conscious. Did I mention I was naked? Well, not totally naked. Pretty close. I had on boxers. But that’s not why I was feeling self conscious. What made me self conscious was the fact that I was in the conference room with 50 year old-ish Hasidic Jewish Father of 6 children.
