In this episode, I'll be joined by our special guest, Michelle Vandepas, co-founder of GracePoint Matrix Publishing. Michelle has made her career helping people write and publish books to help them grow their personal or business brand. She is a leading expert for entrepreneurs who want to share what they’ve learned with the world by becoming an author.

As a book coach and publisher, Michelle has worked with thousands of authors over the past 20 years to publish and promote their books and their work. She has been featured in numerous media outlets speaking about her passion for ‘purpose and profit’ and she is going to be featured in an upcoming documentary called “Wisdom from Thought Leaders" alongside the Dalai Lama and Sting.

She is also an esteemed TEDx speaker and TEDx Speaker Coach.

You will find lots of great information in this episode, including different ways you can publish your first book and the mistakes first-time authors should be avoiding. Michelle also reveals some of the basic things first-time authors should know before they write and publish their first book.
