Robert Kiyosaki

“Without Steve Harrison and his team, Rich Dad Poor Dad never would have become the #1 personal finance book of all time”


Video Transcript

“Hi ... I’m Robert Kiyosaki.  Probably best known for the book: Rich Dad Poor Dad. I'm here to tell you how Steve Harrison and his association helped me through the maze called book publishing.

You may or may not know this, but Rich Dad Poor Dad was turned down by every major publisher. Without Steve Harrison and his team, Rich Dad Poor Dad may have never made it to where it is today, the number one personal finance book of all time. He helped guide me and my little book through this huge maze called the book publishing business.

If you're a struggling writer or have already wrote a book and it's not doing that well, you want to do it better, or you're dreaming and thinking about or contemplating, "Is it time for me to write the next great novel," or non-fiction or whatever it is, and if your message is worth telling, and if your story is important, then please consider contacting Steve and his very professional team to get you through the cut-throat world of book publishing.

Without Steve and his team, Rich Dad Poor Dad would never have been an international bestseller, the number one personal finance book of all time.

Thank you.”

Beware the ‘I’m not ready’ lie and don’t let it hold you back

For many years, I’ve been teaching people what the most successful authors and experts do differently from all the rest.

Want to know one of the BIGGEST differences?

It’s simply this…

Most people say to themselves, “I’m not ready yet to <fill-in-the-blank>.”

“I’m not ready yet to get speaking engagements.”

“I’m not ready yet to get publicity”

“I’m not ready yet to put up a website”

“I’m not ready yet to finish my book.”

But sadly “I’m not ready yet” becomes the theme of their life.

The most successful authors, experts and entrepreneurs, however, don’t act this way.

They essentially say to themselves, “I will get started now even though I don’t feel ready and I will learn from my mistakes in the process.”

That’s what Tony Robbins did.

Unlike most people who think they have to have their book written and published before they can began getting media interviews, Tony began speaking and doing interviews long before he ever had written his first book.

He’s done pretty well, right?

This “ready-fire-aim” approach is very counter-intuitive to the perfectionist inside of us.

But it’s common among the high achievers I work with.

Want to know if you truly not ready or just afraid? 

Ask yourself this question:

Suppose a busy writer from a major national magazine called you today and asked to interview you right now because they were working on a story about your topic and their deadline was today.

Would you say yes to the interview?

If so, you’re ready to begin getting publicity.

If not, ask yourself why you would say no.

Make sure it’s not perfectionism, or fear, or doubt holding you back.

“I’m not ready yet” usually means “I’m afraid to make mistakes” or “I must know that I will do everything perfectly before I even start.”

Don’t put so much pressure on yourself.

Ask yourself, “How could I just get started and learn as I go?”

Just because you’re not ready to swim in the Olympics doesn’t mean you’re no ready to jump in the pool.  Truth is, if you don’t jump in today, you’ll never win the gold tomorrow.

If you answered yes to the question above, I would like you to consider – just consider – attending my National Publicity Summit, April 25-28 in New York. 

Request info now to read about how people just like you who didn’t feel ready got publicity on radio talk shows, featured in major magazines and appeared on national TV – often for the very first time in their lives.

In fact, if you don’t yet feel ready to attend my Summit and meet the media, you’re not alone.  In fact, I’ve discovered that feeling is often a reason why you should attend.

I realize that you probably don’t feel ready – particularly if you’re new to the publicity game.

That’s exactly why my coaches and I are going to work with you and train you one-on-one so that you ARE ready when you show up in New York.

Plus, when you meet the media, you’ll find that in addition to pitching them on giving you coverage, in many cases you’ll also get invaluable feedback and guidance which will help you improve your future publicity efforts.

At my last Summit, one of the attendees came up to me at the opening cocktail party. 

He said something that I’ve heard countless times, “Steve I’ve already gotten my money’s worth from your National Publicity Summit even though it hasn’t even started.”

I asked him to explain.

“Just the training alone has been worth the price of admission.  When I signed up, I didn’t realize I’d get so much training from you and your team.  Thanks to you and your coaches, I now know exactly what I am going to say to the media. I now have several excellent publicity hooks and my media-one sheet is done, and I’m clear on what I need to do to get the media’s attention. “

But then he said, “I almost didn’t come because I didn’t feel ready.”

I’ve heard this countless times – enough to know that the best advice I can give you is to trust your gut.

If you’re ready to soar to the next level, we’ll give you more training and connections than you can imagine.  But only you can decide to take the plunge.

We’re down to less than 39 of the 100 spots remaining, so if you’d like to attend get info now and we’ll see you April 25-28 in New York.

 Whether you attend the Summit or not, I really hope you’ll stop letting “I’m not ready yet” hold you back!

Jen Groover

As result of publicity she got by attending, landed paid speaking gigs plus got her products into Target, Kmart, and Sears!

Video Transcript

I'm Jen Groover, serial entrepreneur, author, motivational speaker, contributor to the media, and UN delegate.

It all began for me at the National Publicity Summit.

This event changes your life in so many ways you cannot even imagine, from getting featured in thousands of magazines, becoming a regular contributor to some of the biggest shows that you know, to writing multiple books, speaking all over the world at Fortune 500 companies.

It is just the platform that spring-rockets you into the next stratosphere of whatever it is that you want to achieve.

When I came here the first time, I had a prototype. I didn't have a book even thought of yet.

I came to learn how to speak more effectively and how to pitch to the media.

Everything that I learned not only got me in front of the media and on the media but also took my business acumen to the next level.

From the training and the connections made at the National Publicity Summit, I've been featured in magazines like Success, Entrepreneur, Inc., regular contributor for Huffington Post and so many more magazines.

I've been on ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNBC, Fox News, Fox Business News.

I mean there's almost too much to even keep track of because it's so powerful, and it never ends.

Once you learn the skill, it doesn't go away; it only gets better.

As a result of the publicity, I've been able to speak at companies like Toyota, Verizon, Avon, at high-level speaking engagements.

I've been able to get my products featured in major retailers, like Avon as well, Target, Kmart, and Sears.

It just is a game-changer in so many ways way beyond just getting featured in media, but that's just the beginning.

NOTE:  Jen is such a believer in the power of attending the National Publicity Summit that she’s become a compensated affiliate for the event.

Four Lessons from Mahesh’s Fox News appearance

Below is an article I thought you might enjoy. It's from one of our National Publicity Summit alumni who got on Fox News Channel's national morning show after meeting the producer at my event.


By Mahesh Grossman, author of Write a Book Without Lifting a Finger

A while back, I decided it was time to get some publicity on national TV to promote my book and ghostwriting services.

Shortly after setting that goal, I accomplished it by appearing on Fox & Friends, the national morning show on Fox News Channel that reaches millions of people across the country!

Today, I've got almost more business than I can handle and the Fox appearance has led to appearances on five other TV shows across the country. Here's how it all happened, and what I learned in the process:

1. Relationships are the name of the media game.

When I made it my goal to get on national TV, I took the plunge and went to the most expensive conference I've ever attended: Steve Harrison's National Publicity Summit, where I got to personally meet producers and reporters from major media outlets like CNN, Fox News, The View, 48 Hours, O the Oprah magazine and Forbes. It's like speed dating with the country's top media. I got brief personal meetings with each arranged and agreed to beforehand. No cold calls. No voice mails.

It was during one of those meetings at the Summit I spoke with the producer for Fox & Friends. I also made a great contact at Time magazine, and a former Oprah producer.

I've kept in touch with all of them and most have helped me to one degree or another. In fact without those relationships, I probably never would have gotten on national TV.

2. You need to be your own publicist.

I don't care if you've hired the best publicist or PR firm in the world -- nobody is going to do a better job promoting you than you are simply because no one cares about what you're promoting as much as you do. Plus, even if you have a publicist -- and I'm using one now to save me some time -- being able to come up with good angles yourself is essential to getting the most out of them.

3. Try to tie-in with the news

Before we had our personal meetings with the producers and reporters at the Summit, their staff trained me to come up with the kind of angles and ideas the media loves. For example, I learned one of the best strategies is to figure out how to tie-it into what's happening in the news.

When I was invited to appear on Fox, it was to rate the presidential candidates in terms of how honest they were about using a ghostwriter for their biographies-- since it was primary season, all the news channels were looking for some angle that hadn't already been used to discuss the election. If you can find a story a producer is already interested in doing (and most are always looking for new angles on stories that are already in the news), you're more than 90% of the way there.

4. Milk your appearance for all it's worth.

I can now say the Fox News Channel refers to me as "The Ghostwriting Guru." That's publicity you simply can't buy at ANY price. It wasn't more than a few days after my appearance I started plastering all of my promotional materials with that phrase. Plus, as I mentioned earlier, the fact I was on Fox makes it much easier to land segments on other shows.

I Forgot To Tell You This

You know what surprises people the most when they attend my National Publicity Summit?

It's how NICE and FRIENDLY the media are when they meet them in person.

After attendees experience my Summit, I ask what surprised them the most and they all seem to say essentially the same thing: "I was really nervous coming here but was pleasantly surprised at how friendly and open the media folks were when I met them. I can't believe they're just ordinary people like you and me."

If you've ever heard me interview the media during any of my teleseminars, you've heard firsthand how I seem to attract very friendly and helpful people.

I've found most journalists and producers are nice and friendly by nature. After all, the nature of their jobs requires them to have good people skills.

But there are also other reasons why they're especially nice at my National Publicity Summit.

Here are a few:

  • 1
    They're representing their show or publication. They want to make a good impression -- just like you do.
  • 2
    They are looking for good stories. They know if they don't make you feel comfortable you might get so tongue-tied they'll miss your story.
  • 3
    They're competing with other media outlets. If you have a good book, story or idea, they want to be the first to tell the world about it.
  • 4
    They enjoy meeting people -- especially at my event which helps make their jobs easier and is a lot of fun.
  • 5
    They know if they're not nice, I won't invite them back.
  • 6
    They're not in a rush or a hurry to make a deadline like they are when you call them or email them. As a result, they'll tend to give you more friendly attention.

Someone once said that FEAR stands for "false evidence appearing real."

Everybody who attends my National Publicity Summit battles fear and nervousness. It's perfectly normal.

You're going to have some butterflies in the beginning until you experience my event for yourself.

But now is the time to make those butterflies fly in formation.

If Steve Shapiro had let his fear prevent him from signing up, he wouldn't have landed a two-page spread in O the Oprah Magazine.

If Ron and Lisa Beres had let their fear and skepticism hold them back, they wouldn't have been booked on the Today Show or Fox & Friends.

If Connie Bennett hadn't learned to make her butterflies fly in formation, she wouldn't have been written up in Time magazine and featured in Woman's World -- valuable print publicity she owes directly to attending my Summit.

I could go on and on and tell you about George Pappadapalous who says attending my event led to his making an additional six-figure income.

Or Meryl Getline who's been paid $25,000 to give a speech after people saw her on The View.

Or Rory Cohen who secured publicity on The View, CNN, People Magazine and Entrepreneur by attending my Summit.

What ALL of these folks have in common is this: they were ALL a bit anxious about meeting the media BEFORE they met them at my event.

But they signed up anyway.

The only way to overcome your fear is to take swift action -- otherwise it'll cost you dearly.

Book Not Out? Avoid This Critical Timing Mistake

After working with more than 12,000 non-fiction authors, I can tell you that most make a big mistake.

They say to themselves, “Right now, I’m just going to focus on writing my book, I can’t even think about getting publicity. I’ll worry about that later.”

On the surface, it makes perfect sense, right?

But it’s one of the biggest mistakes you can make if you want to sell a lot of books.

I’ve found that 98% of authors think this way.

But it’s probably one of the reasons why 98% of all authors sell less than 500 books.

I’m convinced this “Wait-till-my-book-is-done” mistake ultimately causes you to miss out on being interviewed on national TV, getting featured in major magazines or having influential bloggers writing about you and your book.

Here are four specific reasons you really need to start your publicity engines long before your book comes out.

Reason #1
Boost Your Odds of Getting Coverage By Giving the Media Advance Notice. 

“I wish you had contacted me earlier” is a familiar refrain from journalists and producers. Unless you have a breaking news story, the media need advance notice from you.

Book reviewers want review copies well in advance of your publication date.

Major magazine writers and editors work 3-6 months ahead.

Even radio/TV producers who work with much shorter lead times are looking for guests they can use many months from now.

Reason #2 
‘Dig Your Well Before You’re Thirsty’ By Building Relationships With Influential Media Before You Need Them

Let me ask you something. Suppose you were a producer of a radio talk show. You have people contacting you every day.

Who are you more likely to invite on your show ….the stranger you’ve known about for one day or the nice sweet guy who first introduced himself to you six months ago?

You can never start building relationships early enough with influential media.

That’s one of the major advantages of coming to my National Publicity Summit where you’ll be able to meet producers and journalists from many of today’s most influential media. It’s become a breakthrough way for authors and experts to land valuable publicity for themselves…..get all the info here.

One author came to my Summit while his book was just in the concept stage.

It wasn’t a coincidence that 18 months later he had landed a two-page feature. in the O the Oprah Magazine.

He had built the relationship early rather than late.

This IS a relationship game.

The question is….are you going to play it?

Or are you going to sit on the sidelines?

Only you can decide.

Reason #3
Make Your Book “Media-genic" So It More Easily Attracts Publicity AND Book Buyers

When a producer or journalist holds your book in their hands will they INSTANTLY see the story or segment they could do around you?

Will they see the hook they could use to get their audience interested or will they simply see a book by yet another author sharing yet another story and dispensing yet more advice?

The answer lies in making your book “media-genic.”

An often overlooked secret to making your book a media sensation is to get feedback from the media before it’s written and published.

John Jamison, a financial adviser who is a friend and client of mine was recently telling me about all the doors that were already opening up to him even though his book is practically hot off the press.

John says it’s because he has a KILLER title: Wealth Without Stocks or Mutual Funds.

But John says the title wouldn’t have even occurred to him had he not come to my National Publicity Summit and met a writer from Investor’s Business Daily.

That’s what happens when you start pitching at least some media BEFORE you write your book.

You’ll get invaluable feedback and suggestions which allow you to adjust your approach and thus, dramatically increase your odds of getting coverage.

In fact, at our National Publicity Summit, we encourage our attendees to not only pitch the journalists and producers on giving them coverage, but also asking for their suggestions on how they would pitch the same project if roles were reversed.

Reason #4
Building Your Author/Expert Platform for Influence and Profit

But what do you do if you start getting interviews and you don’t have anything to sell because your book isn’t out?

Glad you asked.

Whether your book has yet to be published or has been out for two years, my advice is the same: offer some great free information so people will get on your email list.

That way, you can stay in touch with them and build a relationship with them.

Building your list, your following, and previous media appearances are all part of building your platform.

If you have them, you’re more likely to get your book published by a major publisher.

These are just some of the many advantages to starting NOW rather than later.

Reason #5
You’ll Get More Publicity (and Certainly Repeat Interviews)

The sooner you can start doing media interviews – particularly radio shows via phone – the better.

Why? Because the more interviews you do, the better you’ll get and the easier it will be to convince producers and hosts to book you in the future.

Waited too long? It’s OK

Despite all the above, the truth is most of my clients come to me with their books already done and my team and I work with them to get the word out.

That’s normal.

But for your next book, dare to be a bit abnormal.

Now is the time to begin reaching out to media.

Now is the time to give you and your project the jump start you need.

Now is the time to decide to join me at my National Publicity Summit, April 25-28, in New York City and personally meet over 100 producers and journalists who do stories and shows for America’s leading radio/TV shows, newspapers, magazines and online outlets.

Previous attendees have been booked on the Today Show, The View, Fox News Channel, O the Oprah Magazine, Entrepreneur, Time magazine and many others.

 I hope to see you in New York, but if not, I urge you to avoid making the mistake all too many authors make – don't put off your publicity efforts till ‘later’ because ‘later’ will probably be too late.
