Course Description

You are launching your first book, and you don't really know how to make it successful, right?

Or maybe you've launched a few books, but haven't had as much success as you should.

This is the right place to be. This course is packed with simple-to-follow lessons that will get your book idea onto the Amazon Best Seller list in no time.

What makes me qualified to teach you?

My name is Phil. I am not a traditional author, but I have written 3 books and each has made it to #1 on the Amazon Best Seller lists when I launched them. Plus, I'm the creator of some of the world's most popular online courses - with over 150,000 students and thousands of 5-star reviews like these ones from this course:

This course was great! I just published my ebook on amazon and like an addict I have been watching the download graph all morning!! I followed Phil's advice and its working - Ame Vanorio

This is the 4th of 5th course of Phil's I have taken. Phil has a great delivery. He uses live demos to help cement the information for you. I went back to a couple demos to walk through the process when I was finally ready to launch myself. - Frank Ward

By the time, I took this course, my book was already ranked #1...However, Philip supplied me with tools and tricks to implement into the existing book and for every other book I will author. Thanks for a well thought out course, Philip! - Fonda Clayton

MORE ABOUT PHIL:

I've always tried to live life presently and to the fullest. Some of the things I love to do in my spare time include mountain biking, nerding out on personal finance, traveling to new places, watching sports (huge baseball fan here!), and sharing meals with friends and family. Most days you can find me spending quality time with my lovely wife and our cat.

In 2011, I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Film and Television Production at Loyola Marymount University - one of the top 10 film schools in the country. While there, I was fortunate to make documentaries in Switzerland, Germany, Mexico, and India. After graduating, I worked at Participant Media shooting and editing short-form documentaries for their website TakePart. I followed that stint with a contract at Stanbridge College where I discovered online learning. I helped pioneer their online school there. Most recently, I spent 2 years working at University of California Berkeley with the media team. Throughout this time I built my Video School Online brand to teach others the skills that I have. In May of 2015, I left the 9-5 world to make my own path. Since then, I've made more money, worked fewer hours, and only have done the things I love each day.

I want to show you how to be a better creator, make money from your creations, and live the life you dreamed of.
