Joe Gleason Hits Amazon Best-Seller Lists with “The Soul of Success”

Joe Gleason recently hit ten Amazon Best-Seller lists in the United States and Canada with “The Soul of Success.”

Surprise, AZ – September 17, 2015 – Joe Gleason recently joined a select group of business experts and entrepreneurs from around the world, along with Best-Selling Author® Jack Canfield, originator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul® series, to co-write the book , The Soul of Success, Vol.1: The World’s Leading Entrepreneurs and Professionals Reveal Their Core Strategies for Getting to the Heart of Health, Wealth and Success. The book was released on September 10th 2015 by CelebrityPress™ - a leading business book publisher.

On the day of release, The Soul of Success reached best-seller status in six US Amazon categories - reaching as high as #1 in: “Direct Marketing” and “Marketing in Small Businesses” categories.  The book also reached  #9 in “Marketing,” #15 in “Marketing and Sales,”#20 in “ Entrepreneurship,” and #22 “Small Business and Entrepreneurship” categories. The Soul of Success became an international best-seller, reaching as high as #1 in “Direct Marketing” on Amazon in Canada. Additionally, The Soul of Success reached #8 in “Marketing,” #10 in “Marketing and Sales,” #12 in “Small Business and Entrepreneurship,” and #55 in “Business Management” in the international categories. Joe Gleason contributed a chapter titled “My Secrets to Success: Small Town Values and Big Time Dreams.”

 Joe Gleason learned about ethics from his grandfather, Tom Wells, in Byron, Illinois, a small farming community with just 2,000 residents. During the sale calls, Grandpa Wells would ask his customers about their farms and their families before assessing their needs for his products and services. By watching these interactions first-hand, Joe learned that being in business is trying to help people. 

Today, Joe has brought this small-town approach to Arizona where he continues to apply his grandfather’s lessons in his own family businesses: Gleason Financial Group, LLC, which specializes in income and retirement planning; and Gleason Investment Advisory, LLC, which helps clients manage their investments. Operating together, the firms take a comprehensive approach to managing clients’ finances.

Using comprehensive fact finding, he gets to know clients by identifying their retirement goals. Then through extensive research and planning, he develops a customized financial plan for each client. Maintaining strong relationships with his clients is a priority for Joe, who meets with each client at least once a year and encourages them to call him anytime with their financial questions and concerns. He wants his clients to know he is their financial ally.

His ultimate goal is to empower his clients to create their dream lifestyle -- whether it’s helping someone achieve the dream of traveling across the country in an RV or making it possible for them to spend more time with their children and grandchildren.

CelebrityPress™ describes the book:

Success is a concept universally embraced but individually defined. Our definition of success truly depends on our individual goals. For example, your goal might be monetary, a physical accomplishment or a moral achievement. To flesh out this topic, we are adding a few comments made by famous and successful people in diverse fields - similar and familiar concepts to those put forward by the Premier Experts® in this book.

Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed. ~ Booker T. Washington

You can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed. ~ Napoleon Hill

The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack in will. ~ Vince Lombardi

Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude. ~ Thomas Jefferson

 In our New Economy, the acquisition of success has been reformatted somewhat by business and industry even though its principles remain the same. The Electronic Revolution has changed the economic landscape as much as the Industrial Revolution. We now live more and more in "real time" and expect others to do the same. This era of instant communication has changed the ways in which we communicate and expect responses.

To succeed today, it is useful, perhaps essential, to have a mentor. Errors will be made, but to minimize them will speed up your journey. The Premier Experts® in this book will help you along the way. They have been there and know the road. Who would be better to guide you? They will illuminate your path to The Soul Of Success...

After such a successful release, Joe Gleason will be recognized by The National Academy of Best-Selling Authors™, an organization that honors authors from many of the leading independent best-seller lists.
