Bestselling author Lewis Howes was once a professional football player, until a broken wrist ended his career early. But since then, Howes has launched a multi-million-dollar business and hosts a leadership and personal development podcast called The School of Greatness. Last month, Rodale Books published his book by the same name, and this week the publisher is holding the Unleash Your Greatness Summit to promote the book’s core ideas.
Howes’ book offers tips and resources for overcoming adversity and reaching one’s potential, and he highlights eight specific principles, from creating a vision to being of service to others, that have helped him in his life. From Nov. 16 to 23, Rodale will host a free online summit inspired by the book, featuring videos and other content from 28 authors and speakers discussing how they found success. Aside from Howes, speakers include life coach Gabrielle Bernstein and Adam Braun, founder of non-profit organization Pencils of Promise, among others.
