“It has been my honor to have utilized the expertise of Jim Donovan, to assist in the creation, design and marketing for my book. Without Jim’s coaching, expertise, advice and know-how, the book would still be in my head or in my computer. Jim is inspiring, knowledgeable, creative and focused and made my book a reality.” Terri Levine, Coach and Author
“Working with Jim was incredible. With all of his experience he knew exactly where I was at in the Self-publishing process. He knew what I needed and who I needed to contact. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!” Laura Duksta, Author – I Love You More (#7 New York Times Bestseller)
You know you’re capable of more than your demonstrating . . . if only you had some help
You have big ideas but just can’t seem to find the time to implement them. Like Michael Gerber wrote in The E-Myth, “You’re too busy working in your business to work on it”

You’ve worked a number of years, learned all sorts of things, have any number of interests and are passionate about something that other people want to know about.
I’ve been there. Since 1996 I have been selling books, audio programs and services online. I’ve been hired to speak (for pay) to companies, associations, government agencies and schools. I’ve also organized and promoted public seminars and created partnerships with non-profit agencies to provide value and create income for us both.
I’ve been involved with marketing products on the Internet since 2002 and have learned, usually the hard way, what works and what doesn’t.
Beware of the people telling you how easy it is to build an online business. It’s not!
I have taught Information Product Marketing at New York’s Learning Annex and elsewhere. I am a member of the Small Business Advocate Brain Trust and have been part of the Expert Panel at the legendary JV Alert Live conferences with Ken McArthur and I have shared the stage with the gurus of the self-publishing industry.
My early years in the broadcast television industry and, later, as a pioneer in the use of video in business gives me a unique insight into the use of video in business communication.
As an author, I have sold more than half a million print books worldwide and reached more than 100,000 people with my new digital offerings. I have negotiated foreign rights contracts and initiated special sales of more than 15,000 paperback books in a single order. For the record, the average non-fiction book sells less than 2,000 copies in total.
I have coached numerous authors onto success. One former client’s book landed on the New York Times bestseller list.
In addition to my books, I am the creator of the multi-part audio programs, “Stop Living Paycheck to Paycheck,” “This is Your Life, Not a Dress Rehearsal,” and “How to Write, Publish and Sell Your Book and Turn it Into a Never-ending Money Machine.”
As I said, I’ve been there.
Did I make mistakes?
You bet I did. Costly one’s. That’s one of the main reasons I’m offering this service at this time. It truly hurts me when I see people wasting their hard earned money on products and services they don’t need or aren’t ready for.
And it hurts me even more when I see someone give up on their dream because they’re stuck and don’t know where to turn.
Taking what you know and turning it into an income stream is not hard but it can be tricky. There are a number of steps that need to be followed and a specific process for creating your ideal model.
My promise to you is that I will be with you throughout this process and have you up and running, in most cases in three months.
At that time you may choose to go on your way or continue to work with me. I have worked with some clients for a year or more but it’s up to you. The minimum time you will need to ensure your success is three months.
