Michael Hyatt. I was first introduced to him back in 2003 when Dave Ramsey was in negotiations with Thomas Nelson on his Total Money Makeover book. I still remember the day we went over to Thomas Nelson to do the book contest pitch. Dave had brought in one of his friends, Ron Sorbo (link 1 , link 2), to play the steel drums while Dave and Michael discussed the concept the Total Money Makeover contest…$50,000 and a trip to Cancun if I recall correctly. Well that was 2003, and now Michael Hyatt has become a power users of blogs and social media…possibly the leader in the world of book publishing executives.
