This will change your business forever! Free Summit

Grab your free ticket to listen to over 25 bestselling authors talk about becoming a bestselling author.


Today I’m going to share something pretty cool with you that I think will take your business to the next level.


But before I get to that, answer me this:


Why do most people want to write a book?


Let me explain the “most” part of that statement…


There’s a classic New York Times article from 2002 (old, yes, but still relevant!) by Joseph Epstein that shared results from a survey of Americans.


The survey found 81% of people had a book in them, and should write it.


Assuming that percentage holds true today, there are about 250,000,000 (that’s million) people in the USA alone who deeply want to write a book.


According to Bowker estimates, there were 625,327 books self-published in the United States in 2015.


I’ll save you some time and crunch the numbers for you:


Of all the people who want to write a book, only .2% ever publish (if we extrapolate this data to the rest of the world).


NOTE: this is VERY basic math, with several assumptions...but even if we doubled or tripled the number of self-published books, we’d be at less than 1%.


Crazy, right?


So why then do most people want to publish a book?


Well, for many, writing is a passion. Finally getting your name on a published book might be your dream since you were a kid.


(it was for me)


For others, it’s a livelihood. I can’t say for sure, but I’m sure a good percentage of those books published in 2015 were by authors with more than one book under their belt…


But those aren’t the only reason you should write and publish.


If you’re an entrepreneur, a freelancer, a consultant, a speaker, or just someone who wants to be known as an authority in your space, writing a book just might be the biggest thing you could do for your business and brand.


Why?


Publishing a book will:
  1. open the door to new clients and customers
  2. build your credibility and authority
  3. expand your audience and increase your influence


And no, this isn’t an exaggeration.


My friend and publisher, Jesse Krieger (founder of Lifestyle Entrepreneurs Press), has published and sold tens of thousands of books around the world from authors in numerous genres.


When it comes to his authors who are writing a book for business reasons, he says the results are the same, time after time.


If the author can get the book out there the right way (more on “right way” in a sec), it inevitably leads to:
  1. New clients
  2. New speaking gigs
  3. More press
  4. A greater perceived authority and expertise in the space (which means more of #1 through #3 above - a virtuous, self-cycle)


Okay, so maybe I’ve made the case for self-publishing…


The question is, how do you and I do it the “right way?”


I’ve told you a bit about my friend Jesse Krieger in the last two emails I shared.


He’s an international best-selling author. He has worked with 100+ authors, from all around the world, to help them achieve their dreams of writing and publishing their best-selling book.


And next week, Jesse is hosting the first-ever “Bestseller Summit Online.”


Click here to get your free ticket for the Bestseller Summit Online.


Jesse has invited over 30 best-selling authors and book marketing experts to join him at the Bestseller Summit Online, including:
  • Steve Olsher → NY Times best-selling author of What is Your What, and creator of The Reinvention Workshop
  • Ajit Nawalkha → co-founder of MindValley, Blinkwebinars, and Evercoach, and mentor of his private mastermind, Zentrepreneur
  • Chandler Bolt → 6-time best-selling author and creator of Self Publishing School
  • Guy Vincent → founder and CEO of Publishizer, a crowdfunding platform funded by 500 Startups
  • Tom Morkes → founder of Insurgent Publishing, which ran the marketing campaigns for New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and dozens of Amazon bestsellers, including setting a record for #1 most funded Nonfiction book on Kickstarter (beating Seth Godin from the top spot)
  • Dave Chesson → best-selling author, Amazon SEO expert, and founder of Kindlepreneur
  • And many, many more


This is the first and only time all of these speakers will join together for one purpose: to show you how to write, publish, and most importantly, leverage your best-selling book to grow your business and brand.




You might be thinking to yourself, there are a lot of summits out there. What makes this one so special?


If I had to narrow it down, I think the top 3 reasons you need to attend this event are:


  • Get cutting-edge strategies from authors and publishers who are walking-the-walk (so you can avoid costly mistakes and pitfalls)
  • Get access to experts that would typically charge thousands of dollars for their time, right in the comfort of your own home (the only other option would be fork over $1,000+ to go to an in person seminar or conference...not to mention travel and hotel costs)
  • Meet like-minded authors & entrepreneurs to connect and grow your business by interacting with Jesse and all the speakers during the summit, AND through an exclusive private Facebook group.


I truly believe writing a book could be a turning point for your business and/or brand.


That’s why you do NOT want to miss this event.

Remember, this event is FREE to register for but only for a limited time.


Make sure to claim your free spot while there is still time:




Once you sign up, make sure to ping me inside the FB group.


I’ll be there connecting with others and soaking up some great knowledge :D


That’s it for today.


Take care!

FREE Bestseller Blueprint

Is it just me, or does the idea of becoming a bestseller author really intimidating?


Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against hard work…


But sometimes I feel like the advice for marketing and publishing a book is pure overwhelm.


Think about it.


What’s the typical process for writing and publishing a book?


  1. Outline your book
  2. Pick a title (make sure it’s SEO optimized!)
  3. Write your manuscript...and then 3 years later:
  4. Look for an editor
  5. Realize you don’t have $10,000 for a “professional” editor - hire someone on Upwork with questionable portfolio
  6. Get feedback from editor
  7. Rewrite your entire book (it was all wrong)...and then 3 months later:
  8. Check in with your editor
  9. Get more feedback to rewrite the book again
  10. Fire your editor
  11. Write your final draft
  12. Scrap your old title - come up with a new title
  13. Look for a publisher
  14. Realize you need an agent
  15. Try to get an agent
  16. Send book proposals to hundreds of publishing houses...6 months later:
  17. Decide to self-publish
  18. Hire an interior formatter
  19. Find a graphic designer for the cover
  20. Get your first cover back from the designer
  21. Throw out the cover and ask for a new one
  22. Pick a new title (this is it)
  23. Get a website
  24. Try to get it looking good but give up because it’s so time consuming and you still have a book to publish
  25. Pick a publishing date
  26. Wonder: how do I market this thing?
  27. Try “marketing” on social media...give up because no one is hearting your tweets
  28. Hit publish
  29. Look at first day sales - good, looks like you got a couple sales (Mom came through!)
  30. Check sales a few days later - 0…
  31. Cry deeply


Overwhelming, right?


But what if it didn’t have to be like this?


What if the process of writing and publishing was simple?


And what if you could essentially guarantee being an Amazon bestseller by following a proven, step-by-step process?


According to Jesse Krieger, founder of Lifestyle Entrepreneurs Press, and someone who has published multiple international-best-selling books, there is a better way.


And Jesse has taken his learning and compiled it into a new guide:


The Bestseller Blueprint (click here to get free access)


The Bestseller Blueprint is a guide that will show you what’s working RIGHT NOW in the publishing space.


No generic information compiled from some random Amazon forum last updated years ago…


No fluff.


The Bestseller Blueprint will show you how to:


  • Finish the manuscript and rough draft of your book 70% faster than normal (this is the process that Jesse’s authors go through so he can speed up the publishing process)
  • Quickly and affordably design a killer book cover and interior layout for your book
  • Implement a campaign to build your email list before you launch your book
  • Find readers and customers on Amazon who you wouldn’t otherwise be able to reach - thanks to a special trick
  • Roll out your launch calmly and confidently - always aware of what steps to take next
  • Build on your book launch to grow a 6-figure business as an author, speaker, coach, and entrepreneur!


And did I mention it’s free?

Here’s the deal:

You don’t need to feel overwhelmed about publishing your book.


Not only that, but if your goal is to become a bestseller, it’s totally within your reach.


Throw away the stress, the uncertainty, and the guesswork...


Say hello to your new best friend, who will walk you through each stage of your book launch process, from idea to Bestseller:




Make sure to grab it before it’s gone (only available for a limited time).


Next week, I’m going to share some information about a new virtual event that’s going to show you how to implement “The Bestseller Blueprint” from start to finish…


More on that later.


Best wishes to you in your writing endeavors!
