Interview How I became a self-published millionaire
Interview How I became a self-published millionaire Interview: "How I became a self-published millionaire" Joseph Alexander is a writer, a musician, and a professional marketer here at Reedsy. HeÃ¢â¬â¢s also the co-author of the new book Self-Published Millionaire. We sat down with Joseph to talk about his book, his independent publishing brand, and his journey from private guitar tutor to self-sustaining author - as well as what you can learn from it. Hi Joseph, the title of your book is Self-Published Millionaire, so I guess the first question is: are you a millionaire?Well, yes! As strange as it still feels to say it, I passed the $1,000,000 net worth mark about a year ago, and Ã £1m not long after. My company will bring in about $800,000 this year in royalties, and this has been increasing by about 10-20% each year for the last 6 years.How did you make that happen?The short version is that I was sitting at home teaching private guitar lessons and writing down what I was teaching. The same questions kept coming up repeatedly, so I decided to write out the exercises I was giving. I stored these on my computer and, lo and behold, I eventually had enough material for a book. A friend told me about KDP and the rest is history. Self-Published Millionaire is now available for online purchase. If you have any questions or thoughts, please leave them in the comments below.
