Self Help : Success Coaches

Motivational Authors and Speakers


Motivational speakers and trainers (e.g. Mormon, Stephen Covey, former Hindu monk John Gray, and Anthony Robbins, Andrew Weil, Iyanla Vanzant, Wayne Dyer, Phil McGraw, etcetera).

Since Colonial times, Americans have devoured "success literature," those pragmatic guides to a better life from authors including Ben Franklin, Dale Carnegie and Covey. Today they're called self-help books, and they constitute a $563 million-a-year publishing juggernaut. Books are just one avenue to a brand-new you. From seminars to CDs to "personal coaching," the self-improvement industry rakes in $2.48 billion a year, according to the research firm Marketdata Enterprises, which predicts double-digit annual growth through 2003.

Secular Motivational Speakers CNN: "Many of these speakers write their own bibles, self-help books full of fixed formulas and fancy phrases. But do they provide a lasting benefit? -- a more efficient and happy work force? Or do they just give workers a rush that dissipates faster than a two-drink buzz?"
