Update on Book Sales

It has been a while since I updated my website due to some issues with WordPress. I was essentially unable to login until recently. I wanted to make this update back in April because it was ahead of schedule by a month! On April 3, 2014 I sold my 5,000th copy of the ebook version of my book, 25 Money-Making Businesses You Can Start in Your Spare Time! This was a goal of mine that I wasn’t sure I would reach. I am just amazed at how my book took off and some of the amazing reviews it has garnered on Amazon.com.

I suppose I should shoot for a loftier goal now — say 10,000 ebook sales? Sounds great to me! I will be sure to let you know when this happens. In the meantime, I launched the paperback version of the book and have been very busy raising my one year old daughter and starting a new business.

Thanks for the ongoing support, and feel free to post comments or questions anytime!

My New Book Video

Hey, check out my new video for my book, 25 Money-Making Businesses You Can Start in Your Spare Time! I created the video for my Amazon page to introduce myself to readers and to explain why I wrote the book and how it can help potential entrepreneurs to get started!

My Book Just Hit #1 on Amazon.com!

Money-Making NEW2My book, 25 Money-Making Businesses You Can Start in Your Spare Time just hit #1 on Amazon.com in the Home-Based Business category, and #8 of all books under Entrepreneurship!  My book is doing very well and I am close to achieving one of my personal goals for sales, within the next few months! Exciting times!

Another Book Sales Milestone!

I hit another milestone the other day in goal to be an author. I sold the 4,000th copy today of my book – 25 Money-Making Businesses You Can Start in Your Spare Time! I launched the Kindle book as an experiment after removing the content from my other book, Starting Your Own Business: An Entrepreneur’s Guide. It was one of the chapters in that book.

That was in late September 2012. And to my amazement it began selling quite well on its own. It has been a fun and interesting time since. My end goal is to sell more than 5,000 copies…and at its current rate, I think I just might hit that goal by May!


My Book Hit 2,000 Sales Today!

Today is a special day for me, and a milestone for my book sales.

My Book, 25 Money-Making Businesses You Can Start in Your Spare Time hit the 2,000 sales mark today! All in all, there have been 12,519 downloads since I published the Kindle eBook in September 2012.  The success I am achieving as an author has been tremendously rewarding, and has led me to write and publish several other small business-related titles in the past several months.

Self Publishing: Release the Author Inside of You

In November 2012 I took part in a local event (which also happens around the world) called Ignite Sault.   Participants had 5 minutes and 20 slides to talk about something they are passionate about.  I spoke about self-publishing.  I wanted to share my experiences in writing, creating and promoting ebooks on Amazon Kindle.  Below is the video:
