Biz Ops Bootcamp

Do you make more than $400 a year selling books?

Then you're a

 SOLE PROPRIETOR

So your books are starting to sell...

The hard work and words you have put to the page are starting to pay off. While you may not be able to quit the day job yet, you have a real growth business based on the content you create. You can see that the business is scaling up and you need to start acting like a business owner but don't know where to start.  

You are finding like many indie authors that there is more required than just writing. Sure you knew you needed a great cover and a good editor, but all this business stuff may have blindsided you.  

Just as you saw the revenues coming in you see federal and state taxes, license fees and reporting, all kinds of tasks that pull you away from words on the page. This is the world of indie publishing, and while there are dozens of resources for marketing and advertising, there is little about the actual ins and outs of running a profitable business.  

When you start to see corporate structures, the tax code and business processes as tools to get you the results you want then they change from obstacle to accelerator.  

You need a cost-effective solution to learn what you need to know.  

Now you can have it.  

This is the only course of its kind where you can learn a simple system for making sure you're running your writing business in compliance with tax law and learn solid business practices. You will learn how to strike the right balance between writing and the business of writing. Using this system, you will have a system that delivers the information you need to file your taxes and gives you insight into your business.  

Better still the system will scale with the growth of your business.

WHO SHOULD ENROLL?

  • If you earn between $400 - $11,500 annually from your book sales. 
  • If you wonder how to report your taxes from book sales or how to organize your business.

THEN SOLE PROPIETOR SIMPLIFIED IS FOR YOU

The four week course provides step by step instruction to build a system to manage your sole proprietorship. More than just a methodolgy to have an effortless and acurate tax return, this program teaches you a scaleable system that will take you from extra income through earning a living to creating wealth from your writing. Best of all it is purposely designed for Authors.

WHY LISTEN TO US?

Lisa and I have taken what we have learned managing the businesses of top indie authors and distilled our process down for early entrants to th business. The reality is that the majority of authors make less than $10,000 a year and if you do not operate the business correctly the IRS will rule that it is hobby rather than a business.

We have learned from operating dozens of businesses and a collective fifty years of business consulting that small business owners need a system to stay joyful and profitable. We can show you how to do that. While we are going to show you some industry specfic strategies most of what we teach is applicable to any sole proprietorship.

 I'm Joe Solari

I work with top 100 authors on Amazon helping them build out back-office operations and high-level strategies to grow their brand. I'll let you in on a little secret— they, like millions of other business owners—struggled when it came to setting up their business. All of them would have benefitted from having the guidance we offer in this course at the start of their career, and maybe even made more money. Certainly, they would have saved time and headaches.  

My teachings draw from my twenty years experience in entrepreneurship and consulting with hundreds of business owners who struggled with the same problems you face. We'll give you the foundation that millions of entrepreneurs (not just authors) need to build a solid business. You will tap into the experience, tools, and systems I have developed to simplify operations, shortcut your startup, and achieve exceptional results.
