Want to be viewed as a “credible” business expert? By becoming a published author, you can increase your credibility factor by 300%!

With the technology available today, publishing a book is an attainable goal, and certainly worthwhile of your time and investment considering the significant marketing boost it can deliver. I invite you to read my entire article to find out more about how to add “published author” to your list of business qualifications.
