I knew that running my business didn’t allow me to fully focus on publishing my book and I needed to find a publishing partner.

The experts at Publish Your Purpose were able to guide me through the process while also allowing me to focus on my day-to-day duties of business ownership, resulting in a book that is not only a work of love but also a wonderful marketing tool.

I interviewed other publishers before I met Jenn and their main focus was solely just producing a book.

The difference in working with Jenn and her team is they not only supported my passion and purpose through this challenging process, but they shared in them and kept me focused as well. Thank you, Jenn, for being a great coach!

The Getting Started for Authors program has been an absolutely brilliant experience for me and precisely what I needed to assist me with clarifying my focus, refining my target audience, and outlining my book in a manageable way that produces results.
