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.
