"This is a large-hearted and graciously written handbook for existing. No crystals, nothing “funny,” just a followable, easy-to-digest guide up the mountain of life, where Deitch proffers up a better view and clearer air. In short: reading this book will make you a better person.”
"From a pioneer in the financial planning industry, I expect practical advice. From a Tony-award winning Broadway producer, I expect entertainment. Joe Deitch is both of those people, and this book delivers on both of those expectations."
"Insightful, practical, and full of wisdom . . . Elevate is for those who know they have so much more potential but struggle with things holding them back. Deitch transforms decades of experience and thought into a clear path to better awareness about the obstacles and practical action."
"Elevate is a treasure trove of Joe’s discoveries as to why and how we make the choices in life that have lead us to where we are today. Through in-depth conversations, Joe has shared much of his life’s work with me, giving me knowledge that has enabled me to better myself. Elevate is his gift to the world and his quest to share his 'journey of increased awareness and enhanced performance.’”
"Destined to be a modern classic, Elevate tackles perceptions about life and common sense, gives them bones, and shares actionable direction. It left me knowing more about what makes me tick and gave me the tools to make impactful and lasting changes to my life."
"I've known Joe Deitch, professionally and personally, for many years. Evident in every conversation we have had is that Joe is a thoughtful, fascinating man, with great insights on life and business."
“As I approach my 80th year I firmly believe that if you stop learning you should lie down and let them throw dirt on you, because you are already dead. Read (this book) (Elevate) and you’ll learn some new ways of not only thinking about life but, more important, doing life.”
"I told Joe Deitch months ago after I read the draft of Elevate that I could not wait for it to be published. Read it, study it, think about it, and implement it. Real happiness and success is not about what you know, what you do, or how much money you make. It is about who you are.”
“Joe is one of those rare people who has achieved much success in many different businesses. But what I also admire in him is his ability to truly savor his life and relationships. In Elevate, he distills the principles and practices that have worked for him and so many others. It is an insightful and eminently actionable book. I only wish I had read it many years ago, and I will send copies to my daughters.”
"Reading this book is like accepting an invitation to an inspiring, enlightening conversation with a good friend. Joe’s reflective questioning woven throughout nudges us toward greater understanding of ourselves and how to reach our potential, in any field or endeavor. The insights are timeless, and will provide guidance throughout life's stages. This book is perfect for a recent graduate or anyone navigating a life transition."
