Richard is the author of The 8 Traits Successful People Have In Common: 8 To Be Great

This book has been called “the ultimate guide to success.”

It’s a real-life, practical guide to achievement – and at the same time it’s entertaining, funny, and inspiring.

Author Richard St. John spent ten years researching success and doing face-to-face interviews with Bill Gates, Martha Stewart, Richard Branson, the Google founders, and over 500 other extraordinarily successful people.

He analyzed every word they said, built one of the world’s largest, most organized databases on success, and finally discovered “The 8 Traits Successful People Have In Common.”

These “8 To Be Great” are the foundation for success in anything, whether it’s business, science, sports, healthcare, arts, or life.
