Getting, and Staying Motivated, is the Most Critical Part of Your Path
All the knowledge in the world about Craft, Marketing & Branding, and Business will be worthless to you if you stop. And most people do.
Publishing is a tough road, and the shoulders of that road are littered with broken dreams.
Because those writers gave up.
I'd love to tell you I pressed on in the early days without ever getting discouraged. That would be a blatant lie. I came centimeters from giving up multiple times. Truth be told, without my wife, I wouldn't be typing this sentence right now, and you wouldn't be reading it.
Looking back, I wish I'd had better perspective, and a plan to fall back on when the the road seemed unnavigable.
See, most people think Craft, or Marketing/Branding, or the understanding the Business side of publishing is the key component to success on this journey. So that's where they spend the majority of their time. But the most critical piece of publishing is staying in the game.
Winston Churchill once famously gave a speech that was only five words long, "Never, never, never give up." But it changed a nation.
In this session we use far more than five words, but we want the result to be the same. That when you finish this course, you'll be determined to follow your dream beyond the ends of the earth, and never let the whispers to give up take you away from it.

James L. Rubart is 28 years old, but lives trapped inside an older man's body. He thinks he's still young enough to water ski like a madman and dirt bike with his two grown sons. He's the best-selling, Christy Hall of Fame, CAROL, INSPY, and RT Book Reviews award winning author of sixteen novels and loves to send readers on mind-bending journeys they'll remember months after they finish his stories. He's also a branding expert, audio book narrator, and co-founder with his son, Taylor, of the Rubart Writing Academy. He lives with his amazing wife on a small lake in eastern Washington.
As I mentioned above, most writers give up. Don't be one of those, please? There's countless stories about people who were inches from success, and quit. But there are also stories of those who pressed through and discovered the finish line was far closer than they imagined.
Be one of the latter, yes?
If you're not sure you're going to make it, I get it. I was there. I'm still there, sometimes. Which is precisely why teaching this session is something I needed, and will continue to need.
I'm guessing you need it too.
Don't miss this. There's nothing to lose, and everything to gain.
