“Almost every problem in your life and your business started as a failure to communicate.” – Mike Acker
Mike is the author of ten books and workbooks, including the best-selling Speak With No Fear, which spent two years as Amazon’s top book on overcoming fear of speaking and was also listed in Forbes “7 Books That Will Help You Conquer The Fear Of Public Speaking.” In addition, he is the co-author of Lead With No Fear and recently released Connect Through Emotional Intelligence along with Speak & Meet Virtually.

The son of drug dealers-turned-NGO leaders, Mike spent his childhood divided between Mazatlán and the Seattle area. Not only did this leave him fluent in Spanish, but it also gave him a personal understanding of what it’s like to be an outsider and a drive to push himself to his limits. He now lives on the Gulf Coast with his wife and son.
