Now that I've actually achieved a lifelong goal of writing an international #1 bestseller, I can probably say that the biggest positive is that I just feel so pleased, satisfied, and fulfilled with the achievement, and I'm happy also that I can use it in my marketing material. It forms a pretty strong piece of credibility for me to move forward with my career.
I'm the managing director and co-founder of EGN. It's a network for senior executives and business owners, and I have the franchise rights for Singapore, so that's where I'm working. We have 420 members at the moment. So my job day in and out is conducting and running confidential peer groups for these executives. I needed some more credibility. I had a lot of ad hoc PR articles and so on, but I didn't really have something that stood out. I wasn't, for example, able to charge for my keynote talks and so on, and this was one of my biggest challenges. How do I step up the game to be able to charge money for the keynotes I'm given.
Some of that has to do with getting this book out. It's called "Prevention Myths: Why Stress Tests Don't Predict Heart Attack and Which Tests Actually Do". I co-wrote this with my friend Todd Eldridge, and we've got several different categories of international bestseller coming out of the blocks. That happened because we worked with John North and Evolvepreneur.
"You won't regret the investment in yourself and the realisation of your dreams." "I’m the author of “How To Lead A Corporate Spin-Off”. I wanted to take a few minutes, with my book in hand, to thank John North and his team at Evolve Global Publishing for helping me get my book and make my dream a reality.
"If you have an idea, if you have a book, if you've written a book, can I tell you sincerely that you will do no better than talk to John North at Evolve Global Publishing." I am very, very pleased to tell you that Evolve Global Publishing has done a wonderful job with picking up this manuscript and getting it published, softcover, digital, hardcover; anything I wanted has been no problem.
He actually went above and beyond what I expected. By the time I'd written the book, I was so exhausted. I had run out of time, energy and inclination to actually go through the publishing process by myself. It was at this time that I met John North from Evolve Global Publishing. He picked up the process for me and he ran with it. He was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and he was ever so helpful throughout the whole process.
Hi, I’m Aly, and this is my book! And I wrote it because of John. I’ll tell you all about it in a minute. So, my name is Alena Norman, and I was born in Russia. I’ve traveled to many different countries and done many different things in search of my personal meaning. And I think I’m getting much closer to understanding what that is. And I’m talking about Energetic Leadership.
Hi, my name is Karen Phillip, and I'm the author of Communication Harmony, that Evolve Global Publishing published for me a few months ago. What my life was like before Evolve Global Publishing was, I guess a bit lost. I had al this information that I wanted to share with the community and the public that I knew would be beneficial for them, and I did have an experience with the last book that I wrote that wasn't all that positive. So, when I contacted John at Evolve Global Publishing and went through all the steps that he goes through with all of his authors, I started to feel more comfortable and confident that the strategies he was using would actually work this time against what didn't work last time.
I was very happy when I heard that John North had a great designer team, and indeed they gave me suggestions that I wouldn’t have thought of, and the result is a cover that I love.
I published the book at the beginning of August this year, and by the 29th of August, it had reached best-selling in 14 categories in 4 categories, which is why I can call myself a “Best-Selling Author” now. That was in no small part to John’s and Evolve Global Publishing’s services in getting me that fantastic achievement.
