Michael Hyatt is the author of the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestseller, Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World. He is also the former chairman and CEO of Thomas Nelson publishers and has spent thirty years working in nearly every facet of book publishing. Most recently, Forbes magazine named him one of the top ten online marketing experts to follow and one of the top fifty social media influencers.
It’s no wonder because his blog MichaelHyatt.com is ranked by Google in the top one half percent of all blogs with almost 500,000 unique visitors a month. His podcast, This is Your Life, is consistently in the top ten in the business category on iTunes and downloaded by more than 350,000 people a month. He has more than 220,000 followers on Twitter and he is also the president and founder of Platform University—an online membership community designed to give people the inspiration, coaching and resources they need to get noticed in this noisy world. While Michael loves his work, it is not the most important thing in his life. That position belongs to his family. He has been married to his wife Gail for thirty-seven years. They have five daughters, four sons-in-law and eight grandchildren and they live just outside of Nashville, Tennessee. For more information about Michael, visit MichaelHyatt.com.
