Writing My First Book Was Hard, But It Doesn't Have to Be That Way for You

I remember the excitement at the thought of becoming a published author and all the doors it was going to open for my leadership development business and me.

I also remember the fear, self-doubt, and sheer overwhelm. And I especially remember feeling like there was so much to learn I didn’t know where to start.

So, I invested lots of time and money to learn how to successfully write, self-publish, and market a nonfiction book from the ground up.

As a total newbie with zero platform, I struggled along the way. But in spite of this, I successfully wrote, self-published, and marketed my first nonfiction book that impacts thousands of leaders around the world each year.

The book not only sold thousands of copies in five continents in its first year alone but was recognized by notable book awards at the local, national, and international levels. It’s also used to train leaders in workplace and university settings.

And you know what? With the tips, tools, and resources I’m going to give you, it’s a lot easier than it seems. It does require work, but it doesn’t have to be complicated.

Yes, you can do it too! And you can do it without struggling.

You’ll need to research, plan, and take action. And that’s EXACTLY what I walk you through in “How to Write a Nonfiction Book That Sells” self-paced online course. 

Here’s to your successful first nonfiction book!
