FREE Leadership Books for State Officers

Dear State Advisor or State Director,

This post is NOT about my speaking services. It IS about partnering with you in the great work you do. But bear with me during the first few sentences as I give a little background…

The 2013-2014 school year was a tipping point for me. I was asked to share the DIRECTION DETERMINES DESTINY message with over 22,500 students, advisors, and educators in 16 different states (visiting some states multiple times).

Since then, I’ve been privileged to speak to approximately 100,000 more students, advisors, and educators, and honestly, I’ve stopped counting states (smiles).

Yet the number of people I’ve been privileged to speak to was not the tipping point for my company. What was it?

The Tipping Point

As a State Advisor or State Director, you are bombarded with requests from speakers who want you to hire them. When I started speaking to student leadership organizations June 2010, I decided to take a different approach. From the beginning, my goal was to serve state advisors and state directors whether you hired me or not. Do I hope you hire me? Of course. But do I believe in your mission enough to serve you with no strings attached? Absolutely!

We hit a tipping point when I asked my team the question, “What can we do to serve student leadership organizations above and beyond their expectations?” We decided the best way to add value to you is to help you effectively equip your state officers for their leadership journey ahead by providing personalized, signed copies of my student leadership book Who Wants To Be Normal, Anyway?! to ALL YOUR STATE OFFICERS. Yes, you read that correctly… ALL YOUR STATE OFFICERS.

Needless to say, the response has been amazing! To date, we’ve been privileged to give away more than 3,000 books. The picture below shows one of our typical days for mailing books out during the summer.

Who Wants To Be Normal Anyway by Kent Julian

Let’s Do It Again

When I speak at state conferences and training events, I constantly have state officers thank me for giving them this book. Many even share their favorite success strategy from the book. Each conversation reminds me of the important work you do, and how I’m privileged to partner with you.

So let’s do it again! I would like to send ALL YOUR 2017-2018 STATE OFFICERS personalized, signed copies of my student leadership book Who Wants To Be Normal, Anyway?! There are no strings attached to this offer; it’s my way of partnering with you to invest in the next generation.

In order to receive these books, simply fill out the information in Part One of the survey below. Part Two of the survey is completely optional and designed to help me know how to better serve you. We will gladly send books to your team whether you complete Part Two of the survey or not.

Here to serve,
Kent Julian
