If you are an entrepreneur, coach, consultant, artist, yoga teacher, digital marketer or any other business owner or you are looking to set up your own business, then having your own book is the best business card you will ever have.

Entrepreneurs have been publishing books to burnish their credentials and attract attention to their business ventures for a long time, but now it's a little easier thanks to the debut of print-on-demand publishing and other technological advancements. With a computer and the right software, almost anyone with good ideas and a way with words can be an author.

Patti Drewek & Iain Scott are the Co-founders of Book Catalyst, an online program that takes anyone wishing to share their expert knowledge with the world by writing their own book through a proven step by step process.

Book Catalyst is a 24 module online course that covers every single aspect of the book writing process, from planning your book outline, target marketing, creating a book website, interviews for your book, publishing and marketing your book….as well as giving you lots of ideas around the many additional income streams that can be generated.

Many people dream of writing a book, but are put off by the overwhelm of knowing where to begin, or the lack of time available to dedicate to such a huge task. Book Catalyst breaks the entire process down into manageable chunks and shows you exactly how you can write your book in under 24 hours if you stick to a plan.
