YOU’VE GOT 2 PATHS IN FRONT OF YOU NOW…

PATH ONE

  • You keep going in circles feeling frustrated and defeated that your book isn’t getting seen.
  • You go it alone only to end up with a book that sits on the shelf, not making the impact you intended.
  • You ignore the opportunity to grow your message and take it to the grave with you.
  • Every time someone asks, “How’s your book doing?” you die a little inside.

PATH TWO

This is the one where you decide to take control of your calling – for yourself, your readers, your business and ultimately the world. This is the path where you choose to get help to bust through blocks, gain clarity, boost your confidence and receive support to finally publish and market  your book so you can become…

  • An author who is published and impacting people with your message
  • An author who feels happy, fulfilled and accomplished
  • An author who is living that “something more” they’ve yearned for
  • An author whose words transform lives around the world

If you're a published author soon-to-be published author or want to re-launch your book and you are ready to take your author, speaking, or coaching business to the next level, you need to be in the Branded Author Club.

HI, I'M ERIC REID 

As a ghostwriter, writing coach, and professional editor and publisher, I’ve worked with hundreds of authors over the years. So, I know how hard it is to find the knowledge and resources needed to become a successful, profitable author. Especially if you are choosing to go the path of self-publishing or assisted self-publishing.  That is why I created the  Author Academy - because every author deserves a home and a team. A place to get information, be challenged, and connect to inspiration and coaching from a team that cares about your dream and your success.

As the founder of Success Life U and Co-founder of Skinny Brown Dog Media, it’s my goal to help authors like you not only write great books but to find and grow the audience they need to sustain your author career and make an impact in the world.

Branded Author Club is a place where smart authors come to grow beyond the book and move from writer to published author to Authorpreneur.

 

What is an Authorpreneur?

It's a mix of two previously opposing words, “author” + “entrepreneur”.

Authorpreneurs apply entrepreneurial skills and mindset to making a sustainable and ongoing living as an author-publisher.

They learned how to promote, market, sell and profit from their writing, not as a one-off, but through the dedicated application of proven business models.

As self-publishing has matured, it's clear that indie authors who are serious about making a living from self-published books need to treat their writing like a business. To indies with a business background, this is a natural progression, while for others, it's a harder transition and there's much to be learned.

Through Author Academy and the Branded Author Club membership, Success Life U offers guidance specific to this group of authors who need to divide their time and other resources effectively between creating, promoting, and marketing their books and running their author business.

TESTIMONIALS

"I was part of the workshop on creating your own one-liner for your business, and I found it super, super helpful. It was a clear three-step formula for creating your one-liner, and it brought a lot of inspiration to me and a lot of clarity for what I want to exactly serve in my business and also who I want to target for my business. I also really loved it when you provided examples and the level of feedback you provided."

"I just wanted to share my experience. I cannot tell you how pleased I am to receive his training. Eric's teaching and support are extremely helpful, and he is very knowledgeable. This programwas very valuable, extremely valuable. As a matter of fact, with his coaching, I kept saying this is part of the program too. Because his coaching really made a difference for me, and I know he'll make a difference for you. I'm thankful, and I'm grateful for this program."

Here's what you get each month...

YOU BECAME AN AUTHOR BECAUSE... 

  • You wanted to make an impact.
  • You had something to say.
  • You’ve been dreaming about being an author since you were a kid.

THEN BOOM.

It's turned out to not be quite what you thought.

You are finding out it’s not just about writing, it’s about getting yourself and your book out there so you can actually build an audience and sell some books.

The problem is that authors have to keep a lot of balls in the air: writing, editing, pitching, and marketing. There is no way you can know it all; that is why Branded Author Club was created.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

3 Key Benefits

IMPACT

You’ll try to decide whether you’re emotionally, financially, and physically ready to take the plunge. But until you become a parent, you’ll never know how amazing, enriching, and challenging your life could be.

The same is true for publishing your book. Until you do it, you will never see the impact you can make in the world and the lives of other people. Don’t believe me, ask any of our successful Authorpreneurs.

INCOME

The brilliant ideas you have kicking around in your head aren’t earning you any money. Only once you commit those ideas to paper and hit publish will you earn income from your thoughts.

How can you make an impact in the world if you don’t have the income to have your message be heard.

Your book can earn you a stream of passive income simply by existing in the right space.

INFLUENCE

Leadership expert John Maxwell says that influence comes from other people who give it in response to who they perceive you to be.

Writing a quality nonfiction book is a perfect tool to show others who you are and what you have to offer so you can build influence, make and impact and use your income to transform lives.
