What do John Grisham, Tony Robbins, and JK Rowling have in common?

These visionaries didn’t start at the top. Like all people of influence, they had humble beginnings. They were just trying to make ends meet as…

…A lawyer in a busy firm.
…A janitor in a corporate office.
…Or a single mother on child support writing the first few words of her book on a napkin.

The one thing they have in common is that they were as busy as you (maybe more). But that did not deter them from moving their vision into reality. Authorship, like any large venture, requires a blend of patience and perseverance. Equally important is a process and team to pull it all together.
