“I under-appreciated the power of a book by 10x.” -Dan Martell, Buy Back Your Time: Get  Unstuck, Reclaim Your Freedom,  and Build Your Empire“I couldn’t have made it without my agent, Lucinda Halpern, who managed to wrangle a hard-charging Marine twice her size and convince him that she knew best (she did). Or without Connor Eck, her right-hand man, who could delicately tell me when my writing was terrible without stoking my ire.”
—Jake Wood, Once A Warrior

“This book would not have happened had I not met Lucinda Halpern. Lucinda is an exceptional literary agent with an impeccable radar for big ideas. She helped me rummage through a mountain of possibilities, spotted the gems, and constructed a plan for showcasing them in a compelling way. If you ever have the opportunity to work with Lucinda, you should pounce. She is preposterously good at her job. Thank you, Lucinda.”
