Anthony Michalski (Tony) is the founder and owner of Kallisti Publishing — the premiere publisher and provider of top quality motivational, instructional, and personal development products, materials, experiences, and events that improve peoples’ lives.

Tony started Kallisti Publishing when he introduced the world to Charles F. Haanel and The Master Key System in 2000. Today, Kallisti Publishing is the only company in the world that publishes all of Mr. Haanel’s works.

Tony wrote and published The Master Key Workbook to compliment and expand Haanel’s philosophy of success. It is a best seller to this day.


Tony graduated from the Pennsylvania State University with a BA in Sociology/Philosophy. While at Penn State, he studied under such prestigious professors as Alfonso Lingus, Sue Tallichet (for whom he was a teaching assistant), Dan Conway, and Sam Richards. When not attending classes or frequenting Zeno’s (which is located directly above the center of the Earth), Tony wrote a little, worked a little, and played guitar in a nine-piece rhythm and blues band called Little Evil and the Rhythm Saints. He also played in the pit orchestra for many of the Penn State Thespians‘  productions, including The Wiz, West Side Story, Jesus Christ Superstar, and Little Shop of Horrors.

Following graduation, Tony worked in many capacities in many fields — or, as he likes to say, he was “the butcher, the baker, and the candlestick maker.” His experience includes working in a bank, as a loan officer, in sales, as a computer technician, as a computer network specialist, as a database specialist for a newspaper, doing layout for a newspaper, on the line in a book bindery, prepress for a book manufacturer, as the “computer guy” for a small company, doing web design, and as a business partner in an auto body parts concern. He also taught for a brief while ballroom dance.

Today, Tony concerns himself with expanding Kallisti Publishing. He is working on  a book about the axioms of success — to be entitled The Axiomsand explores other entrepreneurial ventures as time and opportunity permits. He writes extensively about Haanel’s philosophy of success and his personal experiences at
