Hey, Glenn: This isn't a "What Should I Do?" question, so I hope you don't mind answering. If not, that's fine, but I really would like to know.

I attended a teacher's conference several months back where you were the featured speaker. You were quite inspiring. Because of you, I now instill inspiration and motivation into all my lesson plans to encourage my students to achieve more and rise to levels once thought impossible.

At the end your talk you said that your book will be coming out soon. When will it be released and where can I buy it?

If you'd prefer to not answer this in your advice column, would you please just e-mail me the answer?


The Inspired Teacher


Dear Inspired Teacher: Thank you for asking, and I'm truly glad I was able to inspire you to inspire and motivate your students. The educational world NEEDS more passionate teacher like you! You're awesome!

As for my book release...initially we were to release it this summer (2008). But it's now scheduled for a fall 2008 release. You'll be able to purchase it online at,, and possibly through a few more online bookstores, and perhaps some very cool and selective independent book stores throughout the country.

But why are we holding off to release in the fall? Well, allow me to share. I am honored to announce that I have been asked by Linda Forsythe ( to be a contributing author in her upcoming book series for the book "Walking with the Wise 4 Overcoming Obstacles" which is scheduled for release this summer. Hence, my fall release.

What is also an honor about being in Linda Forsythe's book is that I will be contributing with some of the greatest people in this industry -- people I've admired and respected for many years. My name will grace the printed pages along with Jack Canfield, Jim Rohn, Les Brown, Professor Yunis (Nobel Peace Prize Winner), Marshall Sylver, Brian Tracy, Dr. Wayne Dyer, Bob Doyle, Bob Proctor, Michael Beckwith, John Assaraf, Ken Varga, Deepak Chopra, Esther Hicks, Dan Kennedy, Loral Langemeier, Chuck Norris, Ibn Ali (nephew of Mahammad Ali), Sylvestor Stallone, Zig Ziglar, and many more.

I hope you now understand why we're holding the release of my book. But when we have the specific date of release, we will make many, many announcements for pre-sales. Go to my online press kit, hit contact, and drop me an E-mail requesting to be on my mailing list.

Here's to your continued success as an inspirational and motivational teacher! Never lose that passion!

All the best,
