Recently had the honor of interviewing international bestselling author Patrick Snow. And I’d have to say that his mission of supporting entrepreneurs in writing and publishing books to use as a lead generation tool for attracting more clients was beyond impressive.

Over the years, Patrick has served more than 1,200 clients in publishing their books, many of them having become highly paid speakers, coaches, and consultants.

He is a testament to his belief that writing and publishing a book, where you get 100% of the rights and 100% of the profits, is the world’s greatest marketing secret of all-time.

He is the international best-selling author of Creating Your Own Destiny, which has sold upwards of one million copies in five languages and 108 countries worldwide since 2001. This book and his second book, The Affluent Entrepreneur, have both been purchased by John Wiley & Sons.

Patrick is also a contributing author to Chicken Soup for the Soul. His newest book, Boy Entrepreneur was published in 2014 and his next book, Providing Massive Value will be published soon.

Originally from Michigan, Patrick graduated from the U. of Montana in 1991. He resided in the Seattle area for more than 20 years until 2013, when he moved to the beautiful environs of Maui, Hawaii. He recently just moved into his newly constructed ocean-view home on Maui where he often hosts publishing workshops and seminars.

Patrick travels the world as a keynote speaker working for corporations, associations, and network marketing. He has given over 3,500 speaking engagements over the past 25 years on three continents.

As an author, he has sold upwards of a million books in five languages and 108 countries since 2000. As he is fond of saying:

I have made almost every mistake one can make in the publishing business, hence as a publishing coach, I can save you time and money while helping you publish a world-class book that you own 100% of the right and keep 100% of the profits.
