Insuring Success: An insurance professionals guide to increased sales, a more rewarding career, and an enriched life.

This book is being published by Global Professional Publishing (GPP) out of the United Kingdom. The book is aimed at insurance professionals (agency owners, agents, brokers, company representatives and both real and animated mascots). I am down to one final chapter to write and it’s due to my publisher in November, so I’m a little ahead of the game. The goal is to have it available to purchase in early 2014. If you’re in the insurance business, please buy it and tell me what you think. If you’re not in the insurance business, buy it anyway and give it to your agent as a gift. They probably deserve a gift and this would be a good one!


Capt Jack with ballUnleashed: A guide to maximizing your career and enriching your life

The Best of Dan Weedin featuring Captain Jack the Pirate Dog – This is a compilation of the last 5 years of writing that I’ve been doing. Included is my work with Extra Points (my Monday morning mailing); my monthly column with the Kitsap Business Journal; my newsletters and blogs; and of course the musings and wisdom of the indefatigable Captain Jack the Pirate Dog. There will also be new material that has never been read before, called Fresh Fish. This book is completed and I’m in the final stages of editing and reviewing. My goal is to have this available for purchase in time for the holidays. Stay tuned.

Questions: Why would you want to read all my previous works? What value will you receive? Well, why don’t I let my readers tell you!

“I really enjoy reading  Dan Weedin’s weekly “Extra Points” memo.  He can take the simple things that happen in everyday life and write a story about it.  The story always has a point and is relevant in business even when the story is not about business. I find his ability to write stories with creative analogies every week to be simply genius!  Thanks Dan for entertainment and the little nuggets that come with your stories.”– Donna Himpler, Wells Fargo Bank

“Dan has a special knack of simplifying complex business strategies. His column in the Kitsap Business Journal, using everyday analogies relative to the business world, is especially beneficial for daily tactics and team building. His insightful nuggets are great reading for enhancing business success, whether you’re an entrepreneur or a corporation. I always find some practical take-away to pump up my work.” – Barry Hacker, Group Health Cooperative

Dan Weedin is a rare guy who instinctively finds quick answers to tough issues. I trust him implicitly, and I rarely make that statement. His weekly newsletter–Extra Points–is always relevant and demonstrates Dan’s pragmatism and ability to get to the heart of impactful issues. It would be well worth your while to spend a few minutes with Dan. You’ll thank me for it.”   – Dave Gardner, Gardner & Associates Consulting, Silicon Valley

P.S. If you’d like to be included in a special mailing list to get early announcements and discount opportunities for BOTH books, email me at and tell me you want to be added to the Book Club!
