You’ve heard me talking about all of the things that we are evaluating in our business over here at the Wealthy Speaker School. And the next thing up for evaluation is book sales and how we fulfill book sales. I’ll tell you all about it in my short video below.
We are not going to give up writing and selling books but we are gonna give up shipping books. I guess I’ve probably been selling books for more than 15 years. The Canadian orders, I ship from here in my office in London Ontario. The American orders come out of a fulfillment house in Michigan.
But here’s what’s important to you. We are going to hand over the shipment of the books to Amazon. We’re going to load everything up on the KDP site and we are just going to collect cheques. We’ve been doing that for a long time, but now we’re going to do it for all of the product, for all of the orders and we are no longer going to fulfill books. Because why?
I’m a coach. I don’t want to be in the book shipping business, and that’s just because of where I am. I’m 58 years old. I’m looking at everything, deciding what stays and what goes, everything is under review in the business right now.
This means good news for you…
We’re extending the sale in our bookstore!
Simply use the coupon code “book50” to grab 50% off the sale prices until Friday at midnight.
WE’RE DONATING BOOKS TOO!
Are you a leader, or on a board? Are you apart of NSA (National Speakers Association) or CAPS (Canadian Association of Professional Speakers). If so I would love to donate some books to your chapter.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “donation”.
That will also apply if you are a Toastmasters chapter leader. We have some books called The Epic Keynote that are perfect for that.
Also, if you know of someone who is trying to start a speaking business on a very very tight shoestring budget, not everybody will qualify, but I want you to send me their story with “donation” in the subject line and we will ship them out a book.
I hope you’re going to take advantage of this. I hope I’m going to see some orders come in from the NSA and CAPS chapters so that we can do some good in this world and at the same time release ourselves. We’re going through this massive shedding process, and I’m very excited that you get to benefit from that.
See you soon, Wealthy Speakers!
