Publishing a book remains the most effective way for an author to build a business, expand a brand and become recognized as a thought leader and expert.
According to Author Earnings, there were print sales of 793,119,000 in 2016, the latest data available. E-books sold 221,468,000 while audiobooks (a growing segment) sold 30,983,000 copies. That's over 1 billion in book solds in a year. And these numbers don't factor in sales from self-published books; a sizable market.
The message? People are still buying and reading books.
A book is a tool for getting your voice heard and being recognized as an expert. With a well-received book and one that's a bestseller, you get recognized on a national level.

Your coaching business grows, your stature rises, your fees increase—until you’re even more than a bestselling author:
