Drew Goodman is a speaker, published author, and avid reader.  While pursuing a BA in History at the University of Utah, his love of books (as well as of long hours and small paychecks) led him to a part time job at a bookstore, which became an eighteen year career in the book business.  He’s watched and participated as the book selling landscape shifted, from the rise and fall of chain stores, the growth of internet book retailing, to the rapid evolution of the ebook.  The relationships he developed with booksellers, authors, and publishers, being a published (and self-published) author, and a hands-on fascination with computers and technology, has given him a unique perspective into the book industry.  He’s shared this knowledge with many self-published authors, teaching them about what helps a book sell, best methods of self-publishing and distribution, and how to get their books into bookstores.  

Drew speaks to audiences around the United States about how to more effectively connect with employees and customers to improve their businesses.  He currently reads and writes in Salt Lake City, Utah, where he lives with his wife, five children, one dog, and a three-legged cat.
