I interviewed Vic Conant, Chairman & CEO of Nightingale-Conant for my Journey To Success Radio show.
I have been a fan and customer of Nightingale-Conant's for over 30 years now, from the time when they sold cassette tapes.

Vic's father, Lloyd Conant, was the original business partner of Earl Nightingale. Lloyd wrote the mail order copy for the programs that Earl recorded.
Vic Conant had the great fortune of growing up surrounded by the works of the modern legends of the motivation industry like Napoleon Hill, Earl Nightingale, Dale Carnegie and Norman Vincent Peale to name a few.

His Dad, Lloyd, used to have a speaker in every room of the house, including the bathroom. Vic recounts, “When Dad played Earl Nightingale’s recordings you listened no matter what you were doing!”
After graduating from the University of Michigan and a tour of duty in Viet Nam, Vic eventually joined the family business just as it started publishing other authors besides Earl Nightingale—the first of whom was Denis Waitley and eventually the Who’s Who of business and self -improvement.

Vic took over as president and in 1986 and has spearheaded its growth to over $40mm in sales making it by far the dominant publisher in its field.
Vic has undoubtedly worked with more of the great self-improvement authors than any other human being alive today.
And when an upcoming author in the human potential field wants to get published it is just natural for him or her to seek out Vic and Nightingale-Conant.

Nightingale-Conant produces the Your Right To Be Rich program in conjunction with the Napoleon Hill Foundation.
This is the most comprehensive Napoleon Hill program I have ever come across.
It is also now a requirement to become a Napoleon Hill Foundation Certified Instructor.
