The Value of This Training

We recently received $15,000 for just one of our consulting clients. Imagine if you could get just one $15,000 client per month. That's $180,000 per year and $1,800,000 over ten years. That's how valuable this training is.

We've hosted events where the tickets were $2500 per person and had over 100 people attend the event. That is a minimum of $250,000 per event and if you held just two of those per year you'd bring in $500,000. Over ten years, that would be $5,000,000.

As you can see, we would be easily justified in charging hundreds of thousands of dollars for this training, but we're not. The reason for this is simple: We are growing so quickly that we need more hands to help with the workload. While we could hire employees, we would rather have dedicated, entrepreneur-minded partners who take themselves and their work seriously and are willing to invest in themselves to get where they want to be in life.

For that reason, we are currently charging just $5,000 per tier for the Verified Literary Consultant Training and $10,000 per tier for the Certified Literary Instructor Course Training. Payment plans are available for those who may be a bit tight financially right now.

The most valuable investment a person can make is themselves as it is the only investment you can make where you have 100% control over how much return you get on it. The only people who do not make back far more than they paid are the people who don't put the work in to finish the content and work the content.

Why Literary Leadership/Thought-Leadership Training is Part of Every Program We Offer

"Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers."
- Harry S. Truman, 33rd President of the United States

Writers Lead the Leaders.
Consultants and Instructors Lead the Writers.

Bandy teaching.JPG

Writing is a leadership position. The words written today will not only impact this generation but every generation to follow after it. After all, we are still reading and being influenced by the words written by those who lived thousands of years ago.​

Great Leaders are Not Born.
They are Cultivated. 

Brandy Miller, Path To Publishing Verification, Certification & Training Program Coordinator

Most writers are not only unaware of their power to shape and form the world around them with their words, but they are untrained in how to wield their power effectively.  The same thing is true about artists, teachers, coaches, consultants, entrepreneurs, and parents. As a result, their work often goes unappreciated, is dismissed as insignificant, or diminished by the people around them. Many of them may hear on a regular basis, "Why don't you get a real job?" as if the work they do isn't making a valuable contribution. 

They can end up struggling to get the support they need to carry out the work that needs to be done, getting nowhere on important projects even when they can afford to hire a team or have a group of supporters because they can't get anyone to agree with the best way to handle things.

They can be deeply affected by critics and negative reviews to the point where it begins to affect their work and slow their progress. They often end up stressed out, frustrated, and feeling like a failure because nobody seems to listen to them or cooperate with them in doing the work that must be done in order to accomplish the great things they have in mind.

It can feel a whole lot like herding cats. 

Literary Leadership/Thought-Leadership Training:
A Stress-Less Approach To Leadership

Being in a leadership role often feels like herding cats. You’re trying to get people who don’t want to do what you want them to do moving in the same direction and working toward the same goals. Whether it is the clients you serve or the audience you attract, getting people to cooperate with you and take you seriously can be a challenge.

The reason most leadership strategies fail is that they fail to LEAD people by employing the 8 keys to literary leadership: Clarity, consistency, communication, connection, commitment, community, collaboration, and conversion.

Those 8 keys are what it takes to unlock the hearts and minds of the people around you to get them not only willing to follow you wherever you want to take them, but eager to serve you and help make your dreams come true with less stress for them and for you.

What Your 12-Month Literary Leadership/Thought-Leadership Journey Will Focus On:

Month 1: Clarity of Vision

Month 2: Commitment to the Vision

Month 3: Consistency of Action

Month 4: Connection with Those They Lead

Month 5: Communication of the Vision

Month 6: Community Building

Month 7: Collaborating with Other Leaders

Month 8: Conversion

Month 9: Listening for Understanding

Month 10: Empathize with Their Situation

Month 11: Ask Relevant Questions

Month 12: Determine the Possibilities

Literary Leaders and Thought-Leaders are excellent at recognizing and cultivating talent, locating and implementing creative solutions to complex problems, coordinating efforts among diverse groups of individuals, and are driven by an inborn desire to produce greatness within themselves and those around them. These are the people who seek not merely to create a book, but to develop a movement that will leave a lasting impact on the world around them, which will impact both current and future generations.
