THE MYTH and the Facts:  Your Book is NOT a Business Card

What if you turned your book into 18 streams of income?

Most authors have been taught that a book is just a business card. Sadly, this is why most authors stay poor. Notice the difference:

Business Cards
Cost Money
Are an Expense
Get Thrown Away
Decrease Space in Your Pocket
Change Landfills

Create Value
Are an Asset
Last Forever
Increase Influence, Impact, and Income
Change Lives

How you view your book and position it in the marketplace shapes your results and your riches—
or lack thereof.

For eight years, Kary Oberbrunner struggled to earn profit as an author. (Let’s just say he kept his day job.) Finally in 2012, he discovered the model that enabled him to go pro as a writer.

In Your Book is NOT a Business Card, Kary reveals his proven process for helping authors create a suite of products—18 streams of income in all—to service their readers’ needs while growing their profits. To date, more than 250,000 authors from all over the world have found success using this powerful model. His clients have effectively implemented it across multiple continents, languages, and genres—even with fiction and children’s books! 

Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author, Kary Oberbrunner will teach you how to make the most of your book:

    • Create a clear buyer’s journey that delivers real, life-changing results.
