I’m excited to introduce you to my first new book for 8 years: 17 – The little way to get a lot done

It’s a limited edition book written off the back of a pop-up group.

The 17 Group has been running since 1st July and ends tomorrow.

What started simply as a way to kick start the second half of 2020, has developed into something quite amazing.

And I have been writing like crazy; bringing together ideas, tools and techniques from the last eight years and combining them with the activity of the 17 Group.

And now I’m launching 17 The Book. It’s packed with; how to’s, life and work hacks, motivation, stories, inspiration and ways get more out this thing we call life!

And when I say amazing offers – I mean amazing!

    The book will be Brilliant because it was written by Michael, all of Michael’s work is just fabulous. It will be full of positivity, eccentricity and lots of fabulous snippets of useful, easy to read and put into practice ideas – with the emphasis being on action.

    Really looking forward to this book coming out – I feel like I got more done in the 17 days of the pop-up group than in the entire first half of the year! You can’t beat the feeling of being super-productive and having loads of fun at the same time.
