This book was a long time coming. There were many days I thought that it would never get to completion and it’s a testament to the help, support, patience and encouragement of many people that it finally is.
This book is the result of literally four years of constant research, reflection, and writing. It would not exist without the help of countless people.
The always amazing Seth Godin gave generously of his time to support this project by giving me an interview for the book at a time when this book was just a glint in the eye of the future. I don’t value that time lightly, because as the best-selling author of Linchpin, Tribes, The Dip, All Marketers are Liars, The Purple Cow and so many other bestsellers and as the most influential business blogger in the world and as the founder and CEO of Squidoo.com and as a very popular speaker, Seth’s time is priceless.

“Scintillating storytelling… backed by science. An all too rare combination. Bestselling Author Ken McArthur’s “The Impact Factor” reveals how small actions really matter if you want to reach the masses with your ideas, products or services. And best of all, Ken’s unique take on impact helps you cut through the clutter and get people’s attention in a noisy world. This book is a must-read for any entrepreneur, or anyone who wants to be one. I personally know Ken and have experienced first-hand the impact he has on people like YOU.

“Can one person really matter in the world? Ken McArthur says ‘yes, you can’. Through strong storytelling, Ken connects the dots to show you how your words, actions and choices make a difference – not just to others, but to your own success. But Ken doesn’t sugar-coat it: sometimes the choices we make, and events outside our control, have a negative impact. Still, if you feel like you’re not having impact, if you’re not creating the success you want, this book will give you a huge boost by listening to how other people’s stories and being inspired by them to keep reaching for success, connections and meaning in your life. As Ken says, ‘If you want life to come up “heads” and all you get is “tails,” you need to keep flipping the coin.’
“But inspiring stories aren’t enough to get you into action. So Ken has included practical advice as well, from marketing to mindset. In simple, digestible chunks, he outlines for you the steps you need to take to set goals, find your target audience and connect with them to have impact. Ah, but if we could only stop sabotaging our best efforts, wouldn’t that be great? Ken covers that, too. This book will give you the motivation and the skills to continue taking action — the best actions possible — on your dreams.”
~ Karyn Greenstreet, Passion For Business
“Ken McArthur is Truly Making a Difference! If there is a phrase that sums up Ken McArthur it is the Big Positive Impact he is making in life. Ken made a decision to live his life that way, but what I love is he observed that making an impact wasn’t an option. He saw good or bad, big or small, you make an impact. And he took it upon himself to enlighten us on how each of our actions can equal a positive change.”
~ Tracy Repchuk, International Speaker and Best Selling Author of 31 Days to Millionaire Marketing Miracles
“Everyone wants to have an impact. Few know how, or even believe it’s possible in today’s crowded world. Ken McArthur shows you how you are already having a major impact, whether you do anything or not, in “The Impact Factor: How Small Actions Change the World.” In the book, Ken makes an undeniable case proving that the tiniest of events can and do have major impact, then he shows you some spectacularly small changes in your thinking that can so easily change your current impact into a major positive force that can easily travel the world and change it as we know it.”
“Skip this book if you want. You’ll continue having a tremendous impact on the world, either way. But, that impact might not be the one you want, if you do skip it. I hope you choose to dive in! There’s no one on Earth I trust more than Ken McArthur to gently, lovingly, blow your skull right off the back of your head with the verifiable reality of how truly tiny your steps to greatness can be.
~ Alan R. Bechtold, best-selling author of “Will Work for Fun: 3 Simple Steps for Turning Any Hobby Or Interest Into Cash” (John Wiley and Sons), editor and publisher

“Well, having known Ken for years, and having gone to his jvAlert Live events a half a dozen times, at times travelling 10,000 miles just to be impacted by his caring attitude, whether him saying who do you want me to introduce you to, to small details such as is the room temperature too cold. It is funny, I’m involved in many prayer groups and I always make sure to tell the groups that we don’t realize how small insignificant actions can impact other people’s lives, and for others those small acts of kindness can change their lives whether it is a kind word, a smile, or a positive attitude. As a professor and entrepreneur I always remind myself what one of my students told me 10 years after she took a marketing class with me: “Sir, I only remember you telling me ‘ If you dream it you can achieve it’- Walt Disney”. I never thought that sentence would impact her so much, yet she started a sizeable company based on those words. Read this book and take small actions that will impact your micro as well as your macroenvironment. The only thing I have to say is that I wish I had written this book, but I’m glad it impacted my life.”
~ Bob Debbas
“Having worked for Encyclopedia Britannica, I know from having read “The Great Books” that a Great Book does not need an endorsement, and neither does Ken McArthur’s, “The Impact Factor”. So what’s my excuse for Highly Recommending this book? It’s really quite simple, The Impact Factor, so clearly opens up your Eyes, your Awareness and your HEART to the one small idea that so many Unhappy people are truly missing. The idea that most people, because of ignorance and a spirit of perfection, fail in a BIG way to do something small because they CAN’T SEE the Future Result of how their little thing can make a HUGE difference. This is the same little blind spot that almost caused me to commit Suicide. I hope you read the book and don’t miss this one small point. Just remember this simple quote, ‘NEVER underestimate the day of small beginnings’. KEEP SMILING…I love you”
- Deremiah *CPE, Inspirational Speaking Star, Author of “52 Great Weeks” and Nightingale Conant Life Time Achievement Award, Winner of the “Acres of Diamonds”. The 16 year old boy who overcame Suicide and LIVED to tell about it.
“ ‘That idea was not in this room when we walked in,’ is one of my favorite sayings, born out of working to build several businesses with my business partner, entrepreneurial psychologist Dr. Marc Kossmann. Everything we’ve done (from creating our Amazon.com #1 bestselling book to speaking in the US and Canada to creating hundreds of videos together) all start with a simple idea that is then added to over and over again. Ideas, connections, action – all vital for success.
And that’s what Ken McArthur does through his jvAlert Live programs. And I speak from experience, having been there, meeting people like Ken, Frank Sousa, Stefanie Hartman, Daven Michaels, Jane Mark and Phil Basten, and JoAnna Brandi.
Can one person’s actions or ideas impact millions? Absolutely, as you’ll find throughout this book. Here’s to Ken and all he does to impact the rest of us!”
