Do you have a book in your head?
Statistics show that 81% of people have a story they want to write, but very few actually do it. For most, this is because they either don’t know how to enter the publishing process, or they feel their writing isn’t good enough. Self-Publishing for Profit was designed to help you overcome both of these fears by giving you detailed publishing guidance, while simultaneously helping you become a better writer.
Produced by veteran independent author and self-publisher Chris Kennedy, Self-Publishing for Profit details the plan he used to sell almost 40,000 copies of his books in his first year, after starting with nothing but a story. Not only will readers learn how to produce ebooks, but also print books, audio books, and more!
Self-Publishing for Profit is the first book that gives authors all of the tips required for success. It not only shows how to design business and marketing plans that will help them be successful in the short term, but also how to improve their writing skills for long term success. It does so without requiring large outlays of cash, giving new authors a two-pronged strategy for success that anyone can follow.

6 Ways to Maximize Profit Margins is out topic today on The Core Business Show with Tim Jacquet. When you say, “Business is good,” do you mean you have a lot of customers or that you’re making great money? Many companies are generating lots of revenue and paying the bills, but they are still not netting much profit. In fact, some owners might not even be aware of how short they’re falling until they review the books at year-end. A number of factors contribute to killing a business’s profit margin, and reversing them can make the difference between just meeting payroll and making a profit. Use these five tips to find ways to increase your company’s profits. This show is sponsored by Apple Capital Group, Inc. #thecorebusinessshow #applecapitalgroup #applecapital
