Announcing a Special

"Bestselling Author Series"

of Live Interviews

HOSTED BY JANET GOLDSTEIN (ME) AND ELIZABETH MARSHALL

 

On a bit of a lark, and inspired by the great ideas and case studies we've been developing for  our 3-Day  workshop for authors, thought leaders, and experts–Book Breakthrough NYC, Elizabeth Marshall and I have pulled out all the stops with an
incredible "Behind the Bestselling Authors" live interview series
starting today, Thursday, July 8 at 4pm ET.  

This is a rare opportunity to hear leading business experts like David Allen, Susan Scott, Michael Port, Howard Behar, Shama Kabani and other authors we've worked with intimately talk about the business and strategy side of their publishing success. They'll reveal how they:

-> developed their ideas into messages, programs and bestselling books with staying power

-> built the RIGHT relationships to grow their following and achieve bestseller status

-> created a sustainable business, along with impact and visibility for their work and book
