Gold Star Press

Stories  From  Business  Professionals  Who  Give  Before  They  Receive

A Published Book is the New Business Card!

A published book brings instant credibility, prestige, and visibility to a business owner.
Using a published book rather than a business card for high potential clients is much more impressive than a business card that gets lost or tossed aside.

People do business with people who they know, like, and trust.

The question is, how will people get to know you, like you, and trust you?
The answer is, through your story.
Story is one thing we all have in common.
When we are vulnerable, when we are transparent, we allow people to see the real us.
When people see the real us, they relate.
Being relational rather than transactional in our business means people will do business with us again and again and again...
