About the Authors

Highpoint Life Publishes the Engaging Roadmap to Fullfillment,  Travel Forward

 

“It starts with being conscious of small things,” says Murphy. “Maybe you held open a door for someone and, instead of a mumbled “thanks” he looked you in the eye and really meant what he said. Perhaps you were in a rush on the highway but eased up to let someone over in front of you—and she waved. You felt those moments.”

 

 

About the Author

Mark Murphy quit his corporate job and in 2002 embarked on his own Travel Forward journey. Father, husband, entrepreneur, speaker, CEO of his own company and a regular travel contributor on Fox, CNN and NBC’s Today show, he has hiked, sailed, climbed, kayaked and rickshawed his way through more than 50 countries around the world, touching and learning from humanity in all its forms as he continues to Travel Forward.

 

“Mark Murphy is unflappable in his excitement and interest.”

Sacramento Book Review

 

“Mark is one of the authors whose presence we highly anticipate,

and whose advice we value.”

—Audra Lower, Host, The Better Show

More Endorsements For Flip the Pyramid

Here’s what other advance readers have had to say about Flip the Pyramid:

 

“A gutsy write-up, full of passion, truth and feet-on-the-ground practical teachings. This is not pseudo-Guru ephemeral talk. It’s real, practical and a must read for those who are willing to learn that businesses today need the right core values and the engaged human capital that can translate into success…and so much more. (The chapter summaries alone are worth the price of the book.)” —Alberto Romero, Director of Fisheries & Sustainability at Lumar Natural Seafood

 

“Greg Slamowitz has applied the best of business research and thinking to the actual workings and culture of Ambrose.  He’s a thoughtful practitioner who ‘walks the talk’ of employee engagement and culture impacting the bottom line.  Greg shares his mistakes and successes in such a way that we can all benefit from his experience and make the business world a better place in which to work. This book will save you a lot of heartache – read it before establishing any company or undertaking a major change in your business.”
—Lynn Buschman, Director of Operations at Lingraphica

Highpoint Publishes first Lifestyle Book, Wake Up, Man Up, Step Up

 

 

“Far more than a crisis book, this step-by-step tool is a whole course in healthy adulthood,” says  Bill Kauth, cofounder of the New Warrior Training Adventure of the ManKind Project and author of A Circle of Men and We Need Each Other: Building Gift Community.

 

“Most men aren’t aware that the old model of masculinity is outdated and ineffective in today’s culture,” explains Arata. “The absence of a healthy, functioning model of masculinity often causes emotional pain in men that is unbearable, demanding significant life changes and generating the proverbial ‘wake-up call,’ whether that be a divorce or other personal crisis. My book provides a practical seven-step Roadmap for how you can transform large or small crises into opportunities for better relationships, happiness and success.”

 

Wake-Up, Man-Up, Step Up is available now in a paperback print edition through Amazon, Barnes & Nobel and other online retailers, and can be ordered by all book retailers  through Ingram. E-book editions will become available for Apple devices, Kindle, Nook and all other readers in late January.

 

 

“Wake Up, Man Up, Step Up is a book that enables you to discover yourself and lead.”—Warren Farrell, Ph.D., author of Why Men Are the Way They Are and The Myth of Male Power

 

“The journey to authenticity is the most critical journey for all leaders of life. Ray Arata gives us the tools to step back in order to step up to our deepest, most sacred obligation: authentic, heartfelt service to all those we touch.”—Kevin Cashman, author of The Pause Principle: Step Back to Lead Forward and Leadership from the Inside Out

 

In November Highpoint Life published the acclaimed children’s title, Sparkle & The Gift by Ayn Cates Sullivan, PhD, with illustrations by Belle Crow duCray  (hardcover;$18.99; 978-0-9839432-4-2), a beautifully illustrated  parable which follows the amazing adventure of a forest nature spirit named Kachina.

Highpoint Launches New Imprint for Children’s and Lifestyle Authors

 

 

Highpoint Life’s first publication in the children’s category is Sparkle & The Gift by Ayn Cates Sullivan , PhD, with illustrations by Belle Crow duCray  ($18.99; 978-0-9839432-4-2). This beautifully illustrated  parable follows the amazing adventure of a forest nature spirit named Kachina, who travels a long way to the world of people  and uses the healing power of light to change the lives of a lovely couple named Joseph and Marta.

 

“The world is full of fabulously talented children’s book authors and illustrators, yet only a very few get past the gatekeepers at major publishing houses,” said Michael Roney, President of Highpoint Executive Publishing. “Thanks to the new wave of distribution systems now shaking up the industry’s old guard, we are able to bring these authors to the world—publishing full-color hardcover books that will delight readers everywhere and make our authors’ aspirations come true.”

 

Highpoint Life also incorporates lifestyle titles by innovative authors and practitioners who are forging new territory in their respective fields of professional focus. In the next few months it will publish 5 Steps to Thrive: Rewire Any Crisis Into Opportunity by Carol Buckfire Benson and Paul Benson; Wake Up, Man Up, Step Up: Transforming Your Wake-Up Call Into Emotional Health and Happiness by executive leadership coach, diversity consultant and speaker Ray Arata; and the gorgeous poetry title, Gather Up Your Soul by Bartholomew John Erbach with photos by Sarah M. Clarehart.

 

Since 2008 Highpoint Executive Publishing has specialized in business books by executives and entrepreneurs who were looking to take their reputations and visibility to the next level of thought leadership. Successful titles have included Potential: Workplace Violence Prevention and Your Organizational Success by Bill Whitmore, Chairman and CEO of AlliedBarton Security Services, Travel Unscripted by television travel impresario Mark Murphy and (with SelectBooks) Frontline Profit Machine by Ziad Khoury, which became a Wall Street Journal and USA Today Business bestseller. In February 2013 Highpoint will publish Flip the Pyramid: How Any Organization Can Create a Workforce That is Engaged, Aligned, Empowered and On Fire! by Greg Slamowitz, Co-CEO of Ambrose PEO.  All of Highpoint titles have been published in both print and e-book editions.

 

The frontier, however, has been economically publishing and distributing full-color hardcover titles using the new tools. “Although Highpoint always has had top-flight design and development expertise, it’s only recently that the new printing and distribution resources have become viable for quality color publishing,” said Roney. “We recognized the opportunity and pursued it.”

 

Highpoint Life is accepting manuscripts and book proposals now.

 

 

“Highpoint Life provided friendly, professional guidance, development and publishing expertise for our book 'Sparkle & The Gift', allowing us to bring Sparkle’s inspirational message to the world. I hope many other children's authors and illustrators will follow Sparkle's lead and dare to share their gifts also. What a delight to have a beautifully designed book, after all positive contributions bring a smile to everyone's lips.” — Ayn Cates Sullivan, Ph.D., author, Sparkle & The Gift

 

“Highpoint Life’s publishing know-how and expert take on today’s dynamic marketplace has been instrumental in the development and publication of my book 'Wake Up, Man Up, Step Up.' I unequivocally recommend the pros at Highpoint when it comes to getting from “A: to “B” in publishing. — Ray Arata, author, Wake Up, Man Up, Step Up: Transforming Your Wake-Up Call Into Emotional Health and Happiness
