Jim Kukral is taking a unique approach to book publishing.
Rather than going through a “traditional” publisher, as he did with his book, Attention! This Book Will Make You Money on Wiley, he is funding a series of books through pledges before writing them.
His new book series is called Business Around a Lifestyle and it will have three volumes.
Volume 1 will be about teaching you how to re-think what you have learned that has been holding you back. It will include interviews with successful lifestyle entrepreneurs and it will motivate you into beginning your own lifestyle plan.
Volume 2 is all about how to take the knowledge and passion that is in your head and turn it into an Internet business of some type. It doesn’t matter who you are, or what you know a lot about, or what you’re passionate about, you can build a business on the Internet. This volume will include the how and why in complete detail, with examples.
Volume 3 is all about building a business in the world of Affiliate Marketing.
There are a variety of pledge options that come with a growing list of perks as you go higher. Think of it sort of like Kickstarter goes B2B.
So after Jim raises funds for the books through pledges, he will write them and hire a production team of editors, proofers, and designers to refine the final product.
He’ll also use the funding to pay for video production and editing.
Does this idea have legs? Well, he just recently launched it and already has over $15,000 pledged.
