His name does not show up in the headline news. He’s not considered a guru. Yet, few people on the planet have touched the lives of so many other human beings. His efforts have helped give birth to countless spiritual, self-help, and financial gurus.
Chappell has a knack for identifying “diamonds in the rough,” polishing them up, and putting them on the center stage to change people’s lives for good.
An endorsement and joint venture with this man is considered the pinnacle of success by many up-and-coming gurus. He has worked with Anthony Robbins, Brian Tracy, Denis Waitley, Joe Vitale, Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, Robert Kiosaki, Earl Nightingale, and many, many others in the self-help and personal development fields. Many can trace their quantum leaps to the day they connected with this man.
His name is Gary Chappell and he is the recently retired CEO of Nightingale-Conant. Nightingale-Conant, which was founded in 1960, is known as the world’s largest publisher of self-help and career-building information in the form of CDs, videos, and digital downloads.
“We really target commuters, people who can use that downtime to educate themselves to further a career,” Chappell said. “We teach people critical success skills they don’t learn in universities.”
Retiring isn’t in Chappell’s DNA. As he says it, why would anyone ever quit changing lives for the better?
Chappell feels his greatest opportunity to help others lies ahead since he began working with The Napoleon Hill Foundation. Almost everyone he has worked with refers back to Napoleon Hill and his remarkable body of work.
