The Benefits of Becoming a Published Author

Why You Should Consider Self-Publishing Your Book


Notable Quotes

“What are the broken record conversations that you have with every new client or prospect? So, these are the things that you just keep repeating over and over and over again. One of the best ways to stop talking about it is to write a book on it and just point to that book.”
Chandler Bolt

“My advice for folks is don’t look at someone’s highlight reel and their destination and compare that to your journey. It’s so easy to see where people are at and not see where they’ve been.”
Chandler Bolt


Episode Summary

Many of us have probably thought about writing a book, and yet so few of us actually get to writing, and even fewer get to publish books. Lucky for us, there’s a solution to this author dilemma—from narrowing down what to write about to actually getting a book out there—and that’s the Self-Publishing School.

In this episode of Health Coach Academy, we’re talking to best-selling author and Founder and CEO of The Self-Publishing School Chandler Bolt to talk about just how instrumental books can be not just in sharing your message to a wider audience, but also in growing and scaling up your business.
