Alan Fox has lived a long and joyful life, achieving tremendous success in many different arenas, both personally and professionally. He has advanced degrees in accounting, law, education, and professional writing. He has expanded his commercial real estate company, ACF Property Management, Inc. into a billion dollar enterprise since founding it in 1968. He founded Rattle Poetry Journal (in 1994), a nationally renowned publication including his conversations with noted poets. He’s an active philanthropist, founding The Frieda C. Fox Family Foundation, a non-profit that provides funding to youth education projects. And in the midst of all this, he has raised a large and loving family with his wife of nearly 35 years.

HOW DID HE DO ALL THIS? Alan attributes his happiness and success to consistently applying his People Tools, the simple, practical life lessons that he’s accumulated—and practiced—over the years.

Now after 75 years of joyful living, Alan is dedicated to sharing his wisdom with as many people as possible through his writings, public talks, and media appearances. His first book, People Tools: 54 Strategies for Building Relationships, Creating Joy, and Embracing Prosperity (January 2014) made two New York Times Bestseller lists and impacted the lives of thousands of readers worldwide. The second in the series, People Tools for Business: 50 Strategies for Building Success, Creating Wealth, and Finding Happiness (September 2014) made the Los Angeles Times Bestseller list, and has been featured on a variety of media outlets including The Huffington Post, Steve Harvey Show and The Meredith Vieira Show.

In his new book People Tools for Love and Relationships: The Journey from Me to Us, which will be released this August, Alan lays out time-proven techniques that you can use to enhance your connection with your spouse or partner, your family and friends—in fact with anyone who is important to you. From learning how to talk about money with your partner, how and when to apologize, to increasing trust and intimacy, each tool addresses a specific issue and provides a simple, straightforward approach that you can adopt to create a positive result.

ALAN’S MESSAGE IN EACH OF HIS BOOKS IS SIMPLE: the key to happiness and success in life is building strong relationships. That’s exactly what Alan has done throughout his life.

We only have today. Let's make the most of it.
