Forever in Print.
Let’s write a world-changing book together.
You’re The World’s Best Kept Secret.
Somewhere deep inside you, there’s a burning desire to write your first book. Not just ANY book — a stellar, well-written book that authentically represents the humble genius that is you.
You procrastinate because you’re unsure of where it will lead or where to even start.
Even if you muster the courage to begin, you simply don’t know where to turn or who to trust.
Countless “book experts” offer to write and publish your book, but you’re just not confident in their ability to create a book that you’ll be proud of — one that lives up to your reputation.
Your family, friends, and peers constantly pressure you to write a book. But it feels nearly impossible to fit it into your already hectic schedule.
You might even have convinced yourself that your book isn’t a priority right now.
We’re here to tell you, now more than ever, the world needs your book.
The World Doesn’t Need Another Vanity Book.
While the self-publishing book industry has convinced millions of people that a book is one big business card or a platform to tell your story, most self-published books languish in a stack in someone’s closet, because the author doesn’t have the time, resources, or knowledge of how to market and sell them.
Too often, the outcome is only the creation of another book… that no one reads.
And a book can’t change the world if no one reads it.
World-Class Experts Write
World Changing Books.
Let us remind you who you are.
You are a CEO, or maybe a Founder, Doctor, Scientist, Coach, Consultant, Attorney, Government Official, Astronaut, Engineer. Or perhaps you’re a polymath who wears more than one of these hats.
Either way, you are a successful, high achieving, world-class expert. And world-class experts know that nothing beats the gravitas of a traditionally published book. Or the prestige of being on the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, or USA TODAY Best Sellers’ lists.
You understand that writing a book is both an opportunity and a responsibility.
To entertain us with interesting, vital, paradigm-shifting information that helps us think differently.
To enlighten us with your real world expertise, experience, and wisdom that help us live more powerfully.
And most of all, to leave a legacy of value for future generations.
Welcome To World Changing Books.

The Generational Impact Of Trees
“The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit.”
— Nelson Henderson
Trees are essential to life on earth. They clean the air we breathe, protect us from natural disasters, and provide homes and food sources for many species.
Each year, 15 billion trees are cut down. In the U.S. alone, 32 million trees are required to print 2 billion books. And up to 5 trees worth of paper are required just for one author who sells a thousand books.
In collaboration with National Forest Foundation’s Sapling Program, 2% of our gross profits will go to replanting trees.
