What Members Are Saying


“I saw you speak at an EO event in Detroit. I purchased your audio book, and I’d just like to say thank you. I am a dad to 18 month old twins, a husband, a family man, and an entrepreneur.   (Your words have helped me change the order of how I would have written the previous sentence by the way.)  Because of you I can’t begin to tell you how many times I have had to step back and tell myself I can’t control the situation, only influence it.  Maybe it’s both kids screaming at the same time, or it’s rush hour traffic, whatever it is, the approach you teach is priceless. I’ve even caught myself saying it out loud, “I can’t control this.” Thank You.”

–Mark V. Sliman, President, Duraflow Industries, Inc.

“This book shifted my perspectives about “Control”. It’s one of those books that I come across once in a while that makes an impact on how I work, think and live.”

“Power of Losing Control has served as a great platform for years for us at the bank. From the executive VP’s to the part-time tellers, [Joe has] helped my people define what they can control, let go of what they can’t, and find their power in the process. I get excited and a little proud every time I hear that another member of YPO has brought [Joe] in to work with their organization…I really believe that ’The Power of Losing Control’ will put [Joe] in the leagues of Steven Covey.”
