Publish Your Book
You need a publishing partner who understands the latest technology, market realities, and marketing strategies.
With close to a million new titles published each year, competition for sales and exposure is tremendous. Traditional publishing doesn't work or isn't available for the vast majority of authors. Fewer than 5% of books are published this way. You spend months "pitching" your book before finally giving up and choosing another path. In the meantime, precious exposure and sales have been lost.
What about self-publishing? Most authors who go this route wind up with an inferior product with little to no real marketing strategy or support. A potentially great message gets improperly developed and, as a result, sales and impact are diminished.
Consider HigherLife's unique collaborative publishing model as the ideal balance between traditional and self-publishing. You retain your rights and benefit from a full team of gifted writers, editors, designers, and marketing strategists who know how to artfully craft your message. Our work is customized and tailored to help you achieve your specific goals and reach your unique audience.

Recently I was giving a presentation to a group of up-and-coming leaders. It was a casual gig so I dressed appropriately (or so I thought) in my jeans and an untucked shirt.
