“If you are there to serve people, at some point in time, you are going to be writing your book.”

“The first time he held his book in his hand, the thing that he told me was something transformed inside of him. Everything that he spoke was there in the book, there was nothing that he had not heard of before but when he physically held it, he started to believe that he’s an expert.”

“When you knock at the doors of all the traditional publishing houses, they are going to see what your online profile looks like. Chances of getting selected, of your manuscript getting approved is like 3% or something or even less.”

“For me to really impact my readers’ lives the reader should take action. Usually, the book inspires people. But what really makes people take action is when they sign up for your course, or they sign up for your coaching program. That is when you can add more value to people’s lives and see the real impact.”

“The book’s marketing doesn’t stop with the launch. I think that’s like a business card that you can promote for the rest of your life.”
