Carrie writes openly about her desire for a couple’s first marriage to be their only marriage. She knows that using tools like Christian faith and sound money management will help couples achieve this goal. Carrie is like me 15 years from now. She is awesome.

Carrie’s posts are a regular encouragement to me.

I know I’m joining the ranks of countless other bloggers who wish they had Michael Hyatt’s success, and are writing about him this week. However, I can’t think of a good reason not to.

I admit it. I’m an evangelist.

On Tuesday, May 22, influential blogger and former CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishing, Michael Hyatt, published his new book called Platform. He’s been promoting this book for a while now, and I’ve been very excited to purchase it. In fact, I even had it preordered.
