I first heard Weldon Long on Phil Taylor's Nightingale-Conant audio series titled Napoleon Hill's 17 Principles of Success and was blown away by his story when I found out more about him.
I was blessed to interview Joel for my Journey To Success Radio show.

The Power of Consistency is based on the fundamental premise that private declarations dictate future actions. In other words, we tend to take actions with the thoughts and beliefs we consistently have, and the cumulative results of those actions eventually create the quality and circumstances of our lives and businesses. Therefore, transformative change in life and business is possible when we reconstruct our minds and take responsibility for its content.
The Power of Consistency teaches you how to create a Personal Prosperity Plan, get deeply emotionally committed to the plan, and take consistent action toward implementing the plan for improved sales and business performance.
The Upside of Fear allows reader to experience the harsh reality of a criminal life and creates a riveting portrait of true crime at its fundamental level. From buying the duct tape for an armed robbery to saving the life of a prison guard, author Weldon Long recounts his harrowing journey of self-discovery and how he went from being a drunk in a jail cell to the CEO of a multimillion-dollar business. Twenty years of drinking, robbing, drugging, and lying led Long to more than a decade of time spent in prisons, jails, and halfway houses - and a more strained relationship with a son he barely knew.
Through the revealing perspective of an eloquent criminal, readers will discover how to use fear as a positive motivating force and use the mind to strengthen the will, even in the bleakest of circumstances. Long's story demonstrates that love can redeem even the most hopeless criminal, and that there can be no emotions stronger than the desire for redemption and the love of a father separated from his son by prison bars.
