Today’s guest is a 5-time bestselling author and the CEO of an online publishing business that grew to $1.3 million in the first year and is now on pace to do over $3.2 million in 2017. He’s helped thousands of people on their journey to writing and publishing their first book through his company Self-Publishing School.
He wrote and published his first book while in college and it was such a success that he dropped out of school. Realizing he could earn thousands of dollars a month in passive income was a huge epiphany. His life’s mission became helping other people unlock that same experience.
He was bitten by the entrepreneurial bug at an early age when he saw that he could make a lot more money working for himself. While his friends were off searching for jobs, he was out starting businesses. By age 20 his businesses earned over $320,000 and he received the “Entrepreneur of the Year” award from Young Entrepreneurs Across America.
