Richard St. John knew how he had found success and how he lost it. A self-described average guy said he  found success doing what he loved, then he spent more than a decade researching the lessons of success — and distilling them into 8 words, 3 minutes video and one successful book.  Find out the insight he gained from his500 interviews of successful people.

The resulting book, Spike’s Guide to Success: Stupid, Ugly, Unlucky and RICH, has spawned a new avenue of success for St. John as a motivational speaker and talk-show star. His newest book is 8 to Be Great: The 8 Traits that Lead to Great Success.

“It’s so great. It’s such a boost of confidence. This book really gives you a lot of self-esteem about who you are, and that you really can be somebody.”
