Would you like a rare glimpse behind the scenes of Nightingale Conant, the World’s leading company in personal development over the last 50 years?

On this week’s episode of Escape The Rat Race Radio, I am very proud to welcome former Nightingale Conant CEO, and newly appointed World Ambassador for The Napoleon Hill Foundation, Gary Chappell.

His name does not show up in the headline news. He’s not considered a guru. Yet, few people on the planet have touched the lives of so many other human beings. His efforts have helped give birth to countless spiritual, self-help, and financial gurus.

An endorsement and joint venture with this man is considered the pinnacle of success by many up-and-coming gurus. He has worked with Anthony Robbins, Brian Tracy, Denis Waitley, Joe Vitale, Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, Robert Kiyosaki, Earl Nightingale, and many, many others in the self-help and personal development fields. Many can trace their quantum leaps to the day they connected with this man.

Nightingale-Conant, which was founded in 1960, is known as the world’s largest publisher of self-help and career-building information in the form of CDs, videos, and digital downloads.

“We really target commuters, people who can use that downtime to educate themselves to further a career,” Chappell said. “We teach people critical success skills they don’t learn in universities.”

Retiring isn’t in Chappell’s DNA. As he says it, why would anyone ever quit changing lives for the better?

Chappell feels his greatest opportunity to help others lies ahead since he began working with The Napoleon Hill Foundation. Almost everyone he has worked with refers back to Napoleon Hill and his remarkable body of work. Chappell feels there’s no better wealth-building information out there than Napoleon Hill’s.


In this episode you’ll learn…

  • How Gary started as a Carpenter at Nightingale Conant and worked his way up to becoming CEO
  • Which was the first audio recording that Gary listened to which switched him onto a lifelong dedication to his own and so many others personal development
  • Out of all the great titles which Nightingale Conant published, one in particular remained the best seller for quite some time
  • How one of the greatest kung-fu fighters of all time credited his success to the book ‘Think & Grow Rich’ by Napoleon Hill
  • Which audio recording was the only ever spoken-word recording to earn a gold record
  • Why the internet has made it easy for many people to become self-proclaimed authorities, when actually they are not



‘When I first met Robert Kiyosaki he had just arrived from Australia where his book ‘Rich Dad Poor Dad’ was gaining ground, yet he had no popularity whatsoever in the United States.’

‘It was very inspiring to see how many people’s lives were changed by our programmes’

‘Andrew Carnegie felt like he had a plan that would help people follow in his footsteps, so he recruited Napoleon Hill to interview some of the greatest minds in the World, and the end result was the well known publication, ‘Think and Grow Rich’’

‘Once the cassette came out, that really revolutionised how recordings could be listened to. That really was the start of the growth period for Nightingale Conant’

‘For the most part, I worked my way up to the CEO position, by being very good at solving problems’

‘I believe there is now an over-abundance of information out there and it’s kind of hard to tell who to follow’

‘The thing about Tony [Robbins] is that he filled a room with more presence than any individual I’ve ever met’

‘The internet has only given us easier and quicker access to the information we need to be successful’
