The results are in! I want to thank everyone who participated in my recent informal survey, What do YOU think of when YOU hear the word bestseller? If you don’t know what I’m talking about, here’s the email I sent out to my subscriber list last month…
——–
NAME – really quickly…

My business coach and I are having
a bit of debate about what constitutes
being a BESTSELLING AUTHOR.

At the end of the day, it really
doesn’t matter what my
business coach and I think –
It only matters what YOU think!

With that, can you take this 30 second
survey so I get the information
straight once and for all!

Thanks for you help!

Dedicated to your success,

For 48.5% of you, becoming a bestseller is “very important.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And, 57.1% have not written a book and the main reason it isn’t complete is that it’s “in process.”
