Jay Papasan is a self-proclaimed bibliophile with a book-hoarding problem. Not a bad tendency as Gary Keller's co-author and head of KW Publishing.

Spending several years editing at HarperCollins Publishers, Jay came to Keller Williams Realty International in a tech writer capacity. After hearing of a company initiative to break into the business book arena – and a chance encounter with Gary – Jay was recruited to help author The Millionaire Real Estate Agent. They wrote what would become a serial bestseller and an industry must-read in just three months. Since then, Jay's co-authored a number of bestselling titles including No. 1 Wall Street Journal bestseller The ONE Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results. Today, when he's not writing or researching the next big book, he's out delivering keynotes and presentations on their bestselling titles.

When it comes to business, Jay says Keller Williams' focus on people is what separates it from the competition. He's come to have a deep appreciation for real estate businesspeople and the industry itself as an incredibly democratic career venture that rewards hard work, strategic thinking and integrity. Being part of a team with an emphasis on delivering great products, training and coaching to help others achieve their goals is what keeps him ticking.

So, what's Jay's ONE Thing? His family … with books as a close second, of course. When he's not on the lookout for dragon eggs with daughter Veronica, or wondering at the Lego creations of his son Gus, he's running a thriving real estate business with his wife Wendy – or enjoying the sights and sounds of Austin with all three.

Chris Guillebeau is a New York Times bestselling author and modern-day explorer.

During a lifetime of self-employment that included a four-year commitment as a volunteer executive in West Africa, he visited every country in the world (193 in total) before his 35th birthday. Since then he has modeled the proven definition of an entrepreneur: “Someone who will work 24 hours a day for themselves to avoid working one hour a day for someone else.”

Chris’s first book, The Art of Non-Conformity, was translated into more than twenty languages. His second book, The $100 Startup, was a New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller, selling more than 300,000 copies worldwide. His latest book, The Happiness of Pursuit, was published in September 2014 and was also a New York Times bestseller.

Dr. RJ was playing super league rugby in Canada when a recruiter from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA offered him a scholarship to attend chiropractic school. His older brother was a chiropractor, but RJ didn’t know too much about chiropractic except for getting the occasional adjustment when he was in pain. He left Canada and moved to Davenport to play rugby and attend chiropractic college.

While attending Palmer, Dr. RJ started developing some digestive issues. He thought he was healthy based on how he looked and felt but soon started having more symptoms. He went home to Canada and ended up in the hospital. He was soon diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and cirrhosis of the liver.

The medical solution for Dr. RJ was to take multiple medications for the rest of his life, which would leave him unable to have children. Dr. RJ felt that living without the chance of having his own family would ultimately be the end his life. He sunk into a deep depression and thought he’d never find his way out.

Dr. RJ had a friend who asked him a life-changing question while going through his health struggles. The friend asked, “What would you be willing to do to get your life and health back?” Dr. RJ replied, “Anything!” He then went to see a corrective care chiropractor his friend recommended. While under the care of this doctor, he was educated on subluxation and the body’s innate healing power. He also learned that from X-rays one could see what was wrong with a person’s spine and correct it through specific and scientific chiropractic care. This was something he had never learned in school.

The chiropractor took seated X-rays of Dr. RJ to find the true cause of his problems and start correcting his subluxations. Dr. RJ and Dr. Michelle, who had stayed together through his struggles, spent their last months in chiropractic college flying all around the world to specialize in becoming corrective care chiropractors.

By the time Dr. RJ graduated in October 2006, he had lost 75 lbs and no longer had diabetes or cirrhosis. His blood pressure and cholesterol were within normal ranges and he regained his health and life through specific and scientific corrective chiropractic. He knew then he wanted to bring pure chiropractic care to his community and share it with as many people as humanly possible.

Dr. RJ and Dr. Michelle have been married since 2007. They have two young children, Jayda and Justus, both of whom were born at home and adjusted within seconds after birth. They’re both healthy children who have never been to the medical doctor. Dr. RJ’s family is the love of his life and his spare time is spent with them.
