    Linda Leon - Book Marketing Professionals with Kevin Hunter - TBFS Radio

    in Business

    Host Kevin Hunter features guest Linda Leon of Book Marketing Professionals on The Business Forum Show. Ms. Leon states that her best learning experience was simply having to sell. Here on TBFS Radio, we sometimes meet business owners that are getting ready to get ready. In Ms. Leon's case, she just had to do get out and there make it happen.


    Here's a note from Linda:


    "My challenges came as a result of the personal learning curve that I had to take to learn to sell books. I had been ripped off by a predatory company, that is why I have the passion for authors. This was before print on demand and was left with a garage full of books to sell. It took me several years to get those books out of my garage but it was the best training I could have received in book marketing."
