Writing a book was something I never thought I’d accomplish in my lifetime, let alone at the age of 19. When my mentor Roger first approached me with the challenge of writing my own book in 2019, I laughed it off as a joke. I was not, and still am not, the most capable writer. I could hardly finish my college essays that were due every week.

What I had, and like many people have, was a set of limiting beliefs based on my own self identity. After giving it some more thought, and seeking inspiration from other entrepreneurs such as Tony Robbins and Ed Mylett, I shed my limiting beliefs by taking immediate and massive action on the task at hand.

A few months later, here we are. My first ever book, What They Won’t Teach You, was published in June of 2019 and had become a best-seller on Amazon shortly after the launch day. This journey has been life changing for myself, and that’s why I want to share these 10 steps I used to make it all happen.

If anything, reading this guide, or even just the introduction, should push you towards taking the first action steps needed in this process. This guide has been carefully crafted in a logical order of steps to ensure that anyone, regardless if you believe in yourself or not, can write a book by simply following the steps laid out in this free resource.

I’m so excited to see the progress and results of those of you who make the commitment to this amazingly rewarding journey ahead.
