Our Campaign Success Coach - The Manual

This 73 page e-book, written by C. Michael Pickens, contains the basics of what every potential candidate needs to make the decision to run. More importantly, it outlines how to WIN. It is in work-book format, allowing potential candidates to reflect on and articulate their will to run, skills, abilities and resources. Click on the cover to download this important resource!

C. Michael Pickens’ book is not only an excellent handbook for how to organize a functional campaign, but also helps build the mindset for every individual in the team. I thought I knew everything after running my first campaign. This book shows how to go about taking actions to give your campaign peak efficiency. This book is both motivational and inspirational. I am excited to be putting these skills to use currently helping out on another campaign, and can’t wait to put them to use on my second campaign!
