I got this email. Just now. I must admit that part of me ponders the implication of being called a little genius (does it mean I’m smart but not that smart, or does it mean the person who wrote it is physically huge and therefore considers me a tiny guy–albeit a smart tiny guy? Hmmm…) Most of …
Yeah, I heard the stories. About authors sitting alone, un-approached, un-approachable, ignored. I’m determined to not make that my story.

Hi, I'm Michael DiLauro, author ofThe Net Present Value of Life
First off, that money I spend my life counting? Not mine.
That's because I'm an accountant, an accountant who writes.
I love to write; I live to write (Cliché? Melodrama? Does that picture make me look fat?)
I write about money, I write about business, and careers, and true success. And I write about how cool it would be to meld passion and careers.
But hey, look at me getting philosophical and heavy. And we only just met.
If you'd like to read about people with careers that set their soul on fire, then I know you'll love my book.
In the meantime, stay awhile, poke around, and please leave a comment. I'd love to hear from you.
Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope you enjoy it.
P.S. If you're thinking, "Well, he's an accountant. He probably wrote some stupid, boring accounting book."
Well, please check out what others have said here.
And I didn't pay them either. Trutfh.
