Michael DeLon: Creating Your Credibility

In this episode, Steve Fretzin and Michael DeLon discuss:

  • Looking for fit, not just for business. 
  • Using books to grow your business. 
  • Credibility, authority, and thought leadership. 
  • Discovering your story. 


Key Takeaways:

  • Having a book makes you an expert on that topic. It gives instant credibility. 
  • Working with a company like Paperback Expert allows you to speak to write your book, not physically write it yourself. 
  • In our culture, it is near sacrilegious to throw away books. Giving a physical book is more likely to be kept (or shared further down the line) than something like a business card or ebook. 
  • Tell the story that only you can tell. People remember stories. People connect through stories. 


“It’s your story. People are going to choose you; they’re going to buy you more than what you can do for them. How or why are they going to choose you? You want people who connect with you.” —  Michael DeLon
