Take Control Of Your Future And Reap The Rewards
Self-published authors have a pretty steep learning curve if they want to joint the ranks of the bestsellers.

Who Doesn’t Love SWAG???
I’m a big “Shark Tank” fan. Love the way they refer to themselves as a venture capital firm on steroids. Well, maybe only Mr. Wonderful made that reference…in one episode.

Of Course I Want You To Stroke Me…Er, My Ego
If you’re an entrepreneur, you need to have a thick skin. You’ll come into contact with plenty of naysayers who will try to blast your ideas to smithereens. Don’t let them break your stride. LOL.
