  • You should already be writing or intending to write books for publication.
  • You will need to set aside a small amount of time to list and fix the author problems I discuss.

One of the biggest struggles writers have is with their mind. Doubts, fears, negative thoughts, dealing with reviews and opinions. These things can derail your business and take energy away from what is most important...writing and publishing your books.

Through this training, I will help you gain a better understanding of how to deal with these problems, so you can build your business more easily by focusing on what you can do and what is most important for your ultimate success.

Too many talented writers don't get what they deserve because they are distracted with obstacles that are beyond their control. How you react to those obstacles can make or break you.

When you know what's holding you back, and you counter with the right methods, you will be able to free your creativity to succeed writing books.

Even if you question your ability to write good books, I will put that into perspective for you too.

You don't need to be a university educated author to do well publishing your own books. In fact, you could be doing yourself a disservice writing to that standard in most markets. You just need to write what your readers can enjoy reading as I will explain.

I focus on keeping everything simple so you can learn and get back to your writing.

The videos are short, the messages are direct, and they are based on the correspondence I've had over the years dealing with thousands of authors, many who have gone on to unbelievable success once their own belief systems have been reset correctly.

There are downloadable transcriptions of each video.

After you've completed this course you should have a whole new level of confidence that you can write, publish and profit from the skills you currently have now.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is for any writer and publisher who finds they are limited by their thoughts, fears and feelings.
  • Anyone who wants to create a more focused publishing business free from unnecessary distractions.
  • For those looking for a key factor in taking your book business to the next level of success.

I help people to succeed in business so they can enjoy the freedom that comes with a consistent income and financial stability.

There are so many opportunities to build wealth from the comfort and convenience of your own home, or wherever you choose to work.

Over the years I’ve worked with some of the most successful marketers on and offline, and in doing so it has allowed me to share the secrets of success with thousands of others.

I’ve had considerable success since becoming a full time internet marketer in 1998 and have taught thousands of people just like you how to replicate my success.

I have trained people on SEO, Video Marketing, Online Marketing, Offline Marketing, Press Releases, Facebook, Twitter, Google Search, Google AdWords and AdSense, Paid Advertising, Solo Ads, List Building and Email Marketing, Blogging, Persuasion Marketing and eBook Publishing and Marketing.

As a former accountant and business mentor, I know the importance of building a business that will generate an income for the long term. One that will give you the financial security that you need.

Everything I teach is based on genuine and proven business methods, so you know when you invest your time and money into anything I teach, you will get a positive return.

I've been publishing books on Amazon Kindle, iTunes and other online bookstores since the beginning of 2010.

There is no better way to live your life than on your own terms, with the freedom to do what you like, when you like.

You will learn how to do that, from what I teach.
