HOW TO BE A BESTSELLING AUTHOR LIKE DR. STEVE WEBB

Dr. Steve Webb saw a big problem he wanted to solve in the world. He wanted to stop school violence. Like most worthy causes, this is no simple task. But Dr. Webb learned that having a book was going to speed things up significantly. So, he put his faith in his author mentor by believing this was true, and he will be the first to tell you it was his smartest move towards ending school violence.

Before his book, things went forward with little steps. “Some” people would listen to him, some would invite him to speak for free. Others paid no attention to him or his practical solution.

His author mentor showed him how to position everything he was doing as a published author, even though his book had yet to be written. Surprised by the instant respect and attention he started to get, we set off over the next year to write his book.

Steve’s book was published in October, and we did a Bestseller Launch a couple weeks after.

Like all big successes, they appear to happen “overnight”, maybe even a miracle. In actuality, months of preparation of exactly what needed to be done to increase the odds in his favor and hard work made this happen. It’s never a complete surprise when another client becomes a bestselling author because they’re doing everything possible to get it done.

Education in a Violent World became a #1 Bestseller as a “#1 New Release” and Bestseller in numerous categories. This is when things really started to take off for this author.

Though he is just on his way to making schools safer for our children, the dynamic is completely different for him. More people in high places, the media, the speaking circuit,… you name it, are ALL willing to take his calls.

The most important thing to remember is that you can amplify your hard work so that the results are 10-fold. In other words, when you approach your important endeavor, do it as a published author. Better yet, be a Bestselling Author, and reap the “magical” benefits of this status.
