–> Are You the “Magic Connector” for Shel’s Next Book?
Want to get an acknowledgement in my eighth book, Guerrilla Marketing Goes Green: Winning Strategies to Improve Your Profits and Your Planet (co-authored with Jay Conrad Levinson), which will be published in 2010 by Wiley & Sons? Not to mention a few copies you can show around?
I am looking for a personal introduction to someone with enormous credentials in social entrepreneurship/green business who might like to do the Foreword for my forthcoming book.
Because this book can have an enormously positive impact on business owners and on society at large, we want it to have as large a reach as possible. I am hoping for a foreword from someone on the order of
- Al Gore
- Jimmy Carter
- Bill Gates Jr
- Wally Amos
- Muhammad Yunus (founder, Grameen Bank, Nobel Prize winner)
- Wangari Maathai (she won a Nobel for tree-planing campaign in Africa)
- Mark Zuckerberg (founder of Facebook)Biz Stone (co-founder of Twitter)
- Malcolm Gladwell
If you know any of these folks, or someone of comparable stature, I would be very grateful for an introduction. If you make the connection with someone who writes the foreword, I will not only acknowledge you in the book and on the website (with your URL, if you’d like) but also give you a few copies of the published book and also give you some very good publicity in my newsletters, etc.
Please contact me as soon as possible if you can help. http://www.frugalmarketing.com/contactform.shtml
–> My Quandary = Your Opportunity
You might have heard that the rights to my award-winning sixth book, Principled Profit: Marketing That Puts People First, got picked up by John Wiley & Sons, and it forms the basis for my eighth book, Guerrilla Marketing Goes Green (co-authored with Jay Conrad Levinson). The new book will include all but, I think, two chapters of Principled Profit, plus some 20-25,000 words of new material. Wiley will publish it in 2010. I’m especially proud of this because, following an e-mail introduction by one of Wiley’s business authors, I landed the deal and negotiated the contract myself.
But my problem is…my contract with Wiley forces me to stop selling Principled Profit by the end of this year. And I still have quite a few left. This was a groundbreaking book when it came out–one of the only voices showing that ethical business not only made good moral sense, but good business sense as well. While there are more resources in this area than there used to be, it’s still really hard to find this sort of solid, practical advice on both the theory and the implementation, in a nice, easy-to-read format that anyone can put into practice.
So I’ve got a deal for you! Want a copy for yourself? Take $5 off the original $17.50 price. Visit http://snipurl.com/kdq1j to order this remarkable book. Just visit and enter the code, GET5OFF. You’ll also receive my two newest e-books free with your purchase.

–>New Web Portal Puts All of Shel’s Stuff in One Place
Something I’ve wanted to do for a long time: have a single page that lets people sort themselves out according to what you’re looking for and how I can help. With over a dozen websites, it was getting pretty complicated. This page starts with several options for types of services, continues to a website directory, and then has a bio and contact options. Would love to hear what you think of it. http://shelhorowitz.com/
