The Business Class News Editors’ Choice Award 2018 is Announced

Over the past twelve months we have been reviewing new publications that have been submitted to our editorial staff. We decided that we would use the following criteria to award this year’s award-winning book.

  • Creative
  • Helpful
  • Unique
  • Thought Provoking
  • Mass Appeal
  • Drives Change

Earlier this year our Publisher, Karl Woolfenden interviewed a seasoned author, Dean Lindsay and we talked about the values and objectives that businesses and individuals need to put into play to help drive change and make an impact on future results.

Dean is an authority on creating change and focuses on progress.

His style of engaging an audience is unique and captures the key topics that are on everyone’s mind but don’t know how to execute and make them part of their daily lives.

Dean’s book,  How To Achieve Big PHAT Goals, met all our criteria for the 2018 Business Class News Editors’ Choice Award for Book of the Year.

So congratulations go to Dean for bringing such an informative book to print, that not only talks about what you should be doing, Dean lays out a clear formula on how to do it.

We are not the only ones that found Big PHAT Goals to be a must read;


“I love, love, love this book! As someone who has been dedicated to setting and achieving personal and team goals for the past 30 years, Big PHAT Goals took my understanding to the next level. I rewrote my goals within days of reading the book, following Dean s formula, and I am already experiencing even greater progress! This is a must read for you, as well as those you lead… and those you love!” — Catherine Monson, CEO, FASTSIGNS International, Inc.

“How to Achieve Big PHAT Goals (PHAT is an acronym for Pretty Hot and Tempting) is a step-by-step guide to creating goals we can get excited about, and then moving forward to achieve them.” –

“I strongly believe How to Achieve BIG PHAT GOALS by Dean Lindsay should be in the hands of every middle and high school student. At this time in their lives, teenagers and youth need all of the positive reinforcement and encouragement they can absorb and this book offers both in a fresh and powerful way. Dean s balance of humor, keen insights, varying text and quick page turning makes for an entertaining, while highly educational read. It is so easily digestible that students will never even realize they’ve been given an assignment in the form of reading. I recommend copies of How to Achieve Big PHAT Goals for every classroom in every school district that is committed to propelling young minds toward positive goal achievement.” — Cindy Gerhardt, President, Florida PTA
