We ALL get stuck, but the question Amplify author Trish Hunt is dying to ask you is: How long do you allow yourself to stay there?
To learn how to break through to a better you, check out this article from LA Weekly featuring Trish and her new book, “From Stuck to Unstoppable: The Power of Intentional Decision-Making in Life and Leadership."
Finding the right publisher is critical to your success as an author, and it requires careful research and consideration. Look for a publisher that aligns with your vision and values, and seek recommendations from fellow authors or industry professionals.
Remember: a successful publishing partnership is not just about getting your book in print but about building a long-term relationship with a company that supports your growth and success as an author.
Creating a powerful foreword hinges on two key elements: the contributor and the content.
Here's how to select the right person to write your foreword and what to include.

"You don't have to be great to get started, but you have to get started to be great." - Les Brown, world-renowned motivational speaker.
Don't wait for perfection or the "right time" to begin pursuing your dreams. The most important thing is to take that first step, no matter how small it may seem.
By starting, you'll gain momentum, learn from your mistakes, and build the skills and confidence you need to achieve your goals.
"Swipe: The Science Behind Why We Don't Finish What We Start" offers the key to break free from failure, disengagement, and regret.
Tracy Maylett and Tim Vandehey explore the "swipe" impulse caused by our high-tech culture, revealing how it hinders us from reaching our goals.

👉 Breaking free from societal expectations and embracing their achievements without fear of being seen as boastful.
👉 Recognizing their role in shaping history, amplifying achievements, and creating new pathways for the future.
👉 Letting go of imposter syndrome to confidently vocalize and share their successes.

Wondering how authors feel about their hybrid publishers? Josh Bernoff has the answer.
After surveying a collection of nonfiction authors across publishing models, Josh found that those who worked with a hybrid publisher felt more positively toward their publisher than their traditionally published counterparts.

We can't wait to see the continued impact their book, "Working With Gen Z", will have on shaping the future of our workforce.
Unlock the secret to pain-free chapter writing with a systematic approach by Josh Bernoff in this article published on Jane Friedman's website!
Bernoff always starts by establishing a precise objective for the chapter, followed by a comprehensive outline to help map out the chapter's trajectory. This allows for the most efficient and ultimately creative construction of the chapter, leaving room for you to craft an engaging opening story, develop a compelling main idea, and seamlessly bridge the connective material.
The bottom line? Prioritize progress over perfection at this stage. Refinement comes through the editorial process later in the overall production arc.

In a world filled with noise, simplicity cuts through the clutter. Embrace the power of clear and concise writing to ensure your message shines bright and resonates with others.
In a recent New York Times article about remote work by Emma Goldberg, organizational psychologist and Amplify author Tracy Maylett highlights the importance of understanding the underlying motives behind apparent dissatisfaction and objection from employees.
"What appears to be a grumbling or complaint is in many cases a request for understanding. When you look at change, the most dangerous people are people who are quiet, because you don’t know what they’re thinking. You can’t address their concerns."
