IM 050: Passive Income and The Art of Self-Publishing | Chandler Bolt

Should you write a book? Today, we chat with Chandler Bolt, founder of the Self-Publishing School, about the benefits of publishing a book, passive income, and more.

Guest Biography

Chandler is the author of 6 bestselling books including “Book Launch” and his most recent book titled “Published.”. He’s also the founder & CEO of Self Publishing School, the #1 online resource for writing your first book. Through his books, training videos, and Self Publishing School, he’s helped thousands of people on their journey to writing their first book.

Chandler was bitten by the entrepreneurial bug at an early age when he saw that he could make a lot more money working for himself. While his friends were off searching for jobs, he was out starting businesses.

He began early (age 11) by selling his personal snacks at scout camp and, by age 17 he hired his friends to help him operate his landscaping business that earned him $10,000 for college. All in all, by age 20 he started and ran over $320,000 in businesses.

During this time, he taught other college students to run their own successful businesses and received the "Entrepreneur of the Year" award from Young Entrepreneurs Across America.

Now he's scaling Self Publishing School, a company he's built from 0 to $7M in 3 years. The best is yet to come!
