He has appeared before more than 5000 civic, social and business groups on marketing, writing, health, motivation, relationships and money. Look at the list of but “some” of his books.
Pete attributes the success of his books to the fact that he writes for the MASSES, in LARGE letters, SMALL words, he researches his topics like Columbo, he CANDIDLY tells what he wants to convey, and most of his books sell for under $10. Each can be read in a few hours.
“If you are familiar with my style of writing, you’ll recognize that I want each book to ‘tell a story’ with hopes that it is both informative and enjoyable to read, and that you understand what I’m saying. I like to ‘slip in’ messages so it won’t seem like preaching. It will not read like a textbook, but one you can learn from and (hopefully) enjoy.
“And gosh, I get blasted by MANY writers, English teachers, and grammarians because of my CAPITAL letters, italics, quotation marks, bold letters, and unmistakable (faulty) punctuation. I just want my readers to not MISINTERPRET what I’m saying! I write as if talking to a friend, and since I’ve been writing WRONG, I’ve sold more than 40 million books.
“ I write for COMMUNICATION, SUBSTANCE, and TRUTH. I “talk” to readers in my books the way I’d talk to a friend. My books on MLM companies have helped over 3 million become millionaires, and tens of thousands with an annual income of from $50,000 to $800,000. In this horrid economy with so many needing “some” money, I try to get them an additional $1000 a month (to start, part-time) and move on from there.
” NO! You won’t need a college degree or a dictionary at your side to read what I write. I also do FREE radio shows around the world. I LIKE what I do and I play business like a game; I have fun and like to WIN the game. My YOUR HOME-BASED BUSINESS book has sold more than 7 million copies, and it sincerely HELPS people regardless of the company; it SELLS and TEACHES.
“It’s perfect for any MLM in that it explains what a Pyramid Scheme IS and ISN’T, and it tells WHY you failed before, and HOW you can NOT FAIL – this time. It is (presently) my favorite book. I’m candid and “tell it like it is.” My books on companies help you make an “informed decision” before you join some crackpot business. I implore you to TELL- not SELL! I thank God every day for my good fortune.
