From the Inside Flap:

Make it BIG! contains the wit and wisdom of Frank McKinney, perhaps the most contrary real estate mogul in the world. With long blond hair, rugged good looks, and colorful Versace vest, you might think McKinney was riding his motorcycle to a recording studio, rather than to close a multimillion-dollar real estate deal. He does things his own way––with a rock star’s flair–– and his story shows that you don’t have to meet the expectations of others to achieve success; you just have to meet your own highest expectations.

McKinney started with nothing but a vision of what he wanted to be, the premier creator of ultra-luxurious "speculative" mansions in the world. With perseverance, a willingness to take enormous risks, and dedication to living life to its fullest, his dream has come true and has made him the undisputed king of luxury "spec" real estate. With a style and flair all his own and a never-say-die attitude, McKinney rode his motorcycle to riches creating and building luxury homes for those who can afford them. Uniquely, he designs, contracts, builds, furnishes, and sells each of his homes without a particular buyer in mind, risking a fortune on each deal. Having sold "spec" homes for as much as $28,500,000, there seems to be no shortage of people who like what McKinney does–– and like the way he does it.

Success is supposed to have its price, but McKinney shows that you can balance your work and play and keep your individuality and your personality while riding to the top of your profession–– whatever your business is. On his unconventional path to success, McKinney always remembered the lessons he learned and the spiritual guidance that got him there, turning those lessons into forty-nine secrets of extreme success. In Make It BIG! he shares the story of his rise to real estate superstardom and the forty-nine simple philosophies that have made him the success he is today, including:

  • Training Yourself to Take Bigger Risks
  • Creating a Niche in Whatever Marketplace You Desire
  • Becoming THE "Go-To" Person in Your Industry
  • Persisting and Persevering Each Day
  • Learning What Makes Highly Successful People Tick
  • Living a Life that Truly Rocks!
  • Sharing the Successes You Have Been Blessed With
  • Leaving a Legacy of a Life Lived with No Regrets

This book is a guide for creating larger-than-life results, and doing it with excitement, passion, and fun. Make It BIG! will give you the secrets for achieving extreme success–– but on your own terms.

About the Author:
