Steve Forbes Speaking

Stature for your Success

If you want to be seen as a thought leader in your field—a person of outstanding authority whose observations are accorded instant respect, whose pieces of advice are almost treated as commands—then you need to make it clearly known. And one of the most powerful ways to achieve this rare stature is through book authorship. Bottom line: people have to know you’re there. And your book is the way to do it.

Our Author-Centered Approach Uniquely Propels Your Success.

Top leaders know that branding is not a luxury, it’s a necessity. Becoming an authority means that you and your brand are synonymous with trust and confidence, and that brand equity translates to greater pricing power and the ability to reduce marketing costs.

The single greatest accelerator for increasing your authority starts with authorship. However, the true power of publishing your book is only realized with an proven media strategy that leverages your status as an author and places you in a category of one with your growing audience.
