Would you like to leave your job and make a living with your writing?
This book will show you how.
Named as one of the Top 100 Business Books of 2015 by INC magazine.
I spent 13 years working as a cubicle slave in the corporate world. I was miserable in my job and my creativity was stunted by the crushing daily grind.
Then I started writing books and blogging, using my words to create products and attract readers.
In September 2011, I left my corporate job to become a full-time author and creative entrepreneur and since then I’ve grown my business year on year – all based on my writing.
More importantly, I’m finally living the happy life I always wanted.
I’m not a Kindle or blogging millionaire and this is not a get rich quick scheme. But I will share with you how I make a six-figure income from writing books, blogging and marketing in an ethical manner.
This is the best time ever to make a living with your writing! Read on to learn more.
Available in ebook and print and coming soon in audiobook
