8 to great
Why is MK Mueller being referred to, by readers of her latest book, as the next Stephen Covey? Because this single mom took her lessons from a life challenging experience and turned them into an 8step process that is helping tens of thousands of adults each year, and more recently, high school students, to find greater happiness and success.
8 to Great has become her passion and she now takes it to the boardrooms of Fortune 500 companies, homeless shelters, universities, prisons and the stages of international conferences. Dr. Phil mentioned 8 to Great on his show in January. Mike Dooley, from The Secret, believes her new book explaining the process could change the world.
Like every motivational speaker MK had a rock bottom experience: she spent a month in a domestic violence shelter, leading to lifechanging insights which she immediately began sharing with others by starting a support group with five neighbors. In no time, hundreds were gathering to hear her message each week.
In 1997 Mueller published her first book, Taking Care of Me: The Habits of Happiness, which has sold over 80,000 copies and has been translated into Spanish and French. It includes the story of her recovery from domestic violence along with hundreds of success stories from her coaching clients.
In 2003, MK launched her 8 to Great Curriculum for middle and high schools. It is now taught in 12 states by over 600 certified trainers and growing rapidly through word of mouth and a national sales team.
Most recently, she finished the book that the curriculum is based on 8 to Great: The Powerful Process for Positive Change. The principles include startlingly fresh and simple definitions for risk, dreams, and a positive attitude definition that is sure to be in Webster’s dictionary in the next decade.
