An actionable guide for quickly improving one's wealth, personal development, and happiness

Successful people don't sit around waiting for everything to be "100%" right or to be "absolutely sure" they will succeed. They don't need absolute assurance, because they realize life doesn't provide any. To get what they want out of life, they set specific goals and put together a formal plan to achieve those goals, one step at a time. Successful people know that the cost of failure is modest compared to that of inaction. Failure means they are smarter the next time. Inaction means there is no next time-there's only a lifetime of regret. In The Pledge: Your Master Plan for an Abundant Life, author Michael Masterson reveals how to become successful-and not just financially, but in every area of life. The book
Offers simple tips to making immediate changes and to establishing long-term goalsDetails strategies on becoming more productive at the office and defeating depressionExplains why simplifying goals into four major ones makes them much easier to achieve

The Pledge teaches readers how to start and finish projects they have been dreaming about for years, boost confidence, strengthen skills, build wealth, and enjoy life.

Michael Masterson has developed a loyal following through his writings in Early to Rise (, an e-newsletter published by Agora that mentors more than 400,000 success-oriented individuals to help them achieve their financial goals. Masterson has been making money for himself and others for  almost for decades. In that time, he's only taken two breaks-each time for two years. The first was after a stint with the Peace Corps where he came to appreciate relative values and the joy of teaching. The second came at age thirty-nine, when he retired from  the $100 million-plus business that he and his partner built. Over the course of his remarkably successful business career, Michael's been involved in the development of dozens of successful businesses, including two that grew beyond $100 million. At one time or another, he's owned and run companies that were public/private, onshore/overseas, local/international, service/product-oriented, retail/wholesale direct mail, and even profit/not for-for-profit.
