Are these the testimonials?

Well, yes, they are.

But first let me tell you about the guy teaching the course (me).

WRITER: I am the author of two novels, 8 non-fiction books, and hundreds of articles and blogs as a science writer, a business writer, and a sales and marketing writer.

PUBLISHER: In 2007, I founded a publishing company with a fiction and a non-fiction imprint, selling thousands of copies for authors across America. I sold the company in 2012.

BUSINESS CONSULTANT: In 2013, I worked as a business consultant with the Crankset Group. As such, I offered consulting services for business owners, helping them make more money in less time, get off the treadmill, and get back to the passion that brought them into business in the first place.

ENTREPRENEUR: I’ve founded, grown, and sold two businesses. Most recently, I co-founded with my wife an online school for children in Latin America to teach them about technology, entrepreneurship, arts, and mindfulness.

This course unites my passions for writing, publishing, and business. I want to show you how to write your first book so you can become a thought leader in your space and grow your business.

The Famous FAQs

Why 90 days and not 60 or 30 days?
Writing a book can take as long or as short as you want. I once wrote and published a book in two weeks.

There are courses out there that challenge you to write a book in 30 days, but for most people, it’s not practical.

I’m assuming your schedule is pretty busy and you can’t block 6 hours a day for writing, right?

So, 90 days will allow you to complete the program with a commitment of about an hour per day (weekends off) and finish with a full manuscript of around 40,000 to 50,000 words.

Now, if you are an overachiever, you can do it faster. I’ll cheer you on!

Who is this course for?

Chances are that you have already created content around your expertise (blog posts, podcasts, videos) and now want to share your knowledge in a published book.

What if I want to write a book but don't have a clear idea yet?
You can still take the course! During step one we will work together on refining your idea and topic for the book.
What is a business book?

Business and Money is one of the most popular nonfiction book categories, selling millions of copies every year. You can write different types of business books, including:

Company profile or biography: Your story, how you started your company , where it is now and what you learned. Example: Shoe Dog by Phil Knight.

Instructional: How to do something in business, how to launch a product, start a company, innovate, hire people, etc.  Example: The Lean Startup by Eric Ries.

Research Findings: Usually written by professors who detail their research or work with companies, surveys, or industry trends. Example: Good to Great by Jim Collins.
