Turn Your Book Into A Business
More than 600,000 to 1,000,000 books are published in the U.S. alone each year. So how do I get noticed in a very crowded space? Well, it won't happen because you wrote a book and received a contract from a publisher. Understanding a couple truths are essential: Publishers publish and distribute. Agents make connections and help negotiate contract. Authors sell books. In this workshop I will use over two and a half decades of corporate banking and business experience to help you approach your creative craft from a business owner’s perspective. What are you selling? What is your expertise? And, what is your brand? Learning to strategically present your book to the world through the lens of these questions critical to building an “Expert" platform.
