I’ve written five bestselling books including Book Yourself Solid, Beyond Booked Solid, The Contrarian Effect, the New York Times Bestseller, The Think Big Manifesto, and, most recently, Book Yourself Solid ILLUSTRATED, an innovative and completely visual version of my seminal work, Book Yourself Solid.
The Boston Globe called me, “An uncommonly honest author.” The Wall Street Journal called me a, “Marketing guru.” Canada’s Globe and Mail said, “The world needs more Michael Port.” I must admit, as much as I focus on results for the people I serve, rather than approval, this kind of recognition is really cool for a guy who was a C+ student in high school. I’m thankful to receive it.
I’ve blogged for the Huffington Post and have written monthly columns on sales and marketing for Entrepreneur Magazine and American Express Open Forum. I’m a regular guest on MSNBC and have been on PBS multiples times along with CNBC. Here you’ll find 100’s of hours of my radio and TV interviews along with some of my articles and media mentions.
I run the Book Yourself Solid Mentoring Program serving business owners from all over the world and The Book Yourself Solid School of Training, which certifies consultants in the Book Yourself Solid methodology.
Currently, I’m developing marketing and productivity software programs based on the ideas and strategies in my books.
I didn’t start out as an author, speaker, and entrepreneur. I began as an actor. No kidding. You might have been able to pick me out of a crowd from my starring and supporting roles in TV and film projects like Sex and the City, Third Watch, All My Children, Guiding Light, Central Park West, 100 Centre Street, The Pelican Brief, Down to Earth, Last Call, The Believer, and more.
More important than just work, is how one lives their entire life. I blend my yoga teaching past with my martial art present—holding the rank of black belt in Aikido and blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I’ve achieved my lifelong dream of spending most of my time on the water. I’m a United States Coast Guard Licensed OUPV Captain and, if the temperature is above 45 degrees, you’re likely to find me on my boat cruising the Chesapeake Bay. I’ve got it tricked out with cell and wifi boosters so I can lead webinars, do videos and the like, as clearly as if we’re sitting in the same room.
However, my most significant accomplishment and responsibility is probably just like yours, the job of being a devoted parent, son, friend, and citizen.

Then call me at (414) FOR-PORT or send an email now. I’m known for consistently receiving the highest overall speaker ratings at conferences around the world.
And, when you choose me, you won’t be getting a vanilla sugar cookie. You will, however, get a slightly irreverent, often funny, knowledgeable, compassionate and passionate performer who hits his mark every time and leaves his audiences a little smarter, much more alive, and thinking a heck of a lot bigger about who they are and what they offer the world.
