Presenter: Evan Tarver

Evan is a copywriter, fiction author, and business owner with experience in finance and technology.

He contributes nonfiction articles to various business publications, writes a weekly blog on self-improvement at www.evantarver.com, has a published personal finance book, and openly admits that he’s a “business nerd.”

However, he’s also a regular nerd who pens full-length fiction novels that span from the historical past to the dystopian future.

Each piece of writing, whether it be a one-page finance article or a 400-page fiction story, is meant to provide readers with lasting enjoyments and actionable takeaways that better their lives and encourage them to act.

In 2002, I was named Family Physician of the Year by the North Carolina Academy of Family Physicians. In 2010, I became a Fellow of the American Academy of Family Physicians.

Because ultimately, the key to true happiness is self-improvement through positive experiences, and all of Evan’s works seek to accelerate that self-improvement and spread those positive experiences.

Some of his ideas explore the social environment on the macro level, some of his ideas explore the transformative power of personal growth on the micro level – while most of them probably fall somewhere in-between. But everything is written to inspire people to shift the way they think; it may not be a big shift, but it will always be a positive one.
