From Idea to Influence: How to Harness the Power of Publishing for Credibility and Brand Growth with Michael D. Butler

There are 8.1 billion unique stories right at this moment, but not all of them get to be heard. Most of them are buried because of fear of criticism, uncertainty about our writing abilities, or apprehension about revealing deeply personal parts of our lives. Nonetheless, we must recognize that there is power in written words. It is not only about honoring our experiences but also leaving a precious gift for future readers hungry for wisdom, empathy, and connection. 

This week, Daniel is joined by Michael D. Butler, also called The Simon Cowell of Book Publishing. Michael is the founder and CEO of Beyond Publishing, a company that is helping authors become published worldwide. As a bestselling author himself, Michael has given thousands of talks around the globe and is passionate about helping others share their transformational stories. He now lives his dream of traveling the world and using the power of storytelling to make a positive impact.

Listen in as Daniel and Michael discuss how taking ownership of your past pain can unlock your potential and how to turn your life experiences into a life-changing book. They also share top tips for writing your book in just one hour, how to build your brand through writing, how to leverage your book to expand your reach through coaching and publishing, how to reach bestseller status, and more! 

“Most people get stuck in their story and they don't write their book because they're not Ernest Hemingway. But Ernest Hemingway wasn't Ernest Hemingway until he wrote his first book. So write that first book to become famous to create the momentum in your life.” —Michael D. Butler
