Meet Some of

My Clients

Dr. Joe Vitale

I have worked on several projects with Joe over the years. The latest book was Unexpected Kindness (2023). Most of his books sell well, and many are bestsellers. One notable project I helped him publish was a book by his father for his 90th birthday entitled The Most Contented Man. What started as cassette tape recordings in his home became a beautiful autobiography to share.

Dr. Susie Carder

Dr. Susie Carder, a best-selling author and international speaker, was able to leverage her book, sold to Simon & Schuster/Atria in a bidding war, for millions in revenue within the first year of its launch. Results are unique, though, because “Dr. Carder possesses a rare combination of strategic brilliance and operational acumen alongside her Ph.D. in Business and Finance that fuels her ability to transform businesses into the thriving enterprises they should be,” including her own.

Chantha Pak

Chantha’s book, Healing with the Power of Your Mind (2022), debuted as a #1 International Bestseller. She is a first-time author who had an incredible healing experience that she shares with others so they can do the same. Her dream was to have the foreword of her book written by Dr. Joe Vitale, who she had followed the work of for years. It just so happened that her book coach had connections. Her foreword dream came true.
