How do you overcome rejection to launch a successful business? That’s what my guest, Julie Broad, discusses in this week’s episode of Reflect Forward.
Guest: Julie Broad is the founder of the self-publishing service firm Book Launchers and Amazon’s Overall #1 Best Selling Author. Julie knows what it takes to be a successful self-published author. Through Book Launchers and her popular YouTube channel, BookLaunchers.TV, she helps subject matter experts write, publish, and promote nonfiction books that will boost their business.

Episode in a Tweet: If you feel compelled to make an impact with your unique and special message, you have the potential for a book inside you!
Background: Julie Broad is on a mission to help you get your story on paper. She believes that a book is the best way to share your experience, become a thought leader and make an impact. During this episode, Julie and I talk about the effort it takes to author and publish a book and how she helps people become published authors through her company, Book Launchers. We talk about the writing process and the different ways you can go about publishing the book that’s inside you.
We also discuss how she started Book Launchers, which stemmed from her failure to get a book deal that she was expecting. After experiencing severe disappointment, she picked herself up, started a company and self-published a bestselling book – all on her own via the self-publishing process.
I appreciate Julie’s willingness to share her successes and failures and how she approaches running her company. At the end of the episode, she gives this great advice: “When you go through challenging times, just remember that the challenge will give you a gift that you’ll be very grateful for. It will create momentum or innovation or something else great in the future. Don’t be afraid of the challenge.”
