Why You Should Create Your Own Publishing Imprint

Matt is a writer who just finished the draft of his first book. He is planning now for the release of his book in a few months. Matt already decided to self-publish his book and make it look professional.When Matt goes to his print-on-demand company of choice, he has a few options: does he take the cheap route and let the company assign an ISBN to his title? Or does he provide an ISBN of his own?  Continue Reading…See More

"Joanne -- I have to watch my "thats" as well, although I got in the habit of purging those while in journalism school. My other overused word is "just". Every author I know has their own set of words to watch for!"

"Ryan, great post. I agree 100% we have to tell ourselves great stories and be exposed to great stories. Once repeating them to others over time we can benefit as if we've actually done the event. thanks for the message"

What story line runs through your mind?

I constantly have a story in my mind about myself. It’s like an eight-track player. The songs change every few minutes, but after a while, the loop comes back around and I’m listening to the same tape over and over all day.You experience this as well. Each one of us does. A loop that reminds you of who you believe you are, where you came from, and where you think you’re going.Every day there’s a story in your head.Occasionally, someone takes the eight-track tape out and puts another one in.

"Hi Ryan, Time was definitely my top excuse.  I didn't start my first real book, Fire Your Excuses, until I was 48. Everything changed when I realized there would never be more time.  So, my co-author and I wrote in 15-60 minute…"

"Yeah, I had to get over those thoughts, too. The best way I found to get over this was to have 1 or 2 people who believed in me AND in the book I was writing, and shared encouragement from them."

Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
I first saw 48days.net in early 2012. Justin Lukasavige was the first person I heard mention Dan's books, which led me to both 48 Days websites. I attended Coaching with Excellence (Sept 2012). I can connect with others, collaborate on ideas, and contribute to advancing projects I believe in and that match my strengths.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
Author, writer, innovative thinker. Self-employed.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I want to continue writing and publishing books, generate residual income, and help businesses craft great stories.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
Family: To have some acreage of our own for a home. We like small towns and rural lifestyle!
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
I'm a CS on the DISC. I've always had excellent skills with technology. I'm organized, love to read and learn, plan my work, and get things done. I like working in small groups and one-on-one. Routines are great.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?

More than one website?

Ryan - I found the same to be true of my Kindle free promo - did have sales but not as many as I would've liked.  Will be interested to hear what you would do differently next time.

That is awesome! I see your Amazon Reviews are rolling in - congrats!

Jeepers creepers, yes, we are ready to go for the book launch - I am overwhelmed with the outpouring of kindness and generosity. So excited to have our new home page up, our products page ready to go, and 100+ of the most incredible book launch team members on my side. Also gearing up for some workshops next month, podcasts, and monthly seminars (next one is 12/11 at 6am central if you are awake and want to join in - subject is virtual assistants).

My household of 7 is buzzing with excitement these days and everyone is pitching in to make it a family success. VERY exciting.

Hi Ryan,

Thank you for adding me as a friend.

Come join in the discussion. We have an exciting one going on right now. We are encouraging and holding each other accountable in journaling our "successes" and "safety steps". Just like life - no lurkers, only participants. 

They'll be an option for you to join the group if you haven't already. You'll probably find that option at the top middle or right hand side of the page once you get there.

See you in the discussion.

-joel
