Welcome to this episode of the Real Fast Results podcast! Today you are in for a real treat. The special guest is Kathryn Guylay. She comes to the publishing industry with a background in management and consulting as well as non-profit management. As a numbers person, she actually received her MBA in Austin, Texas, at UT. One of the coolest things about Kathryn is the fact that after graduating, she went on to work for dozens of multinational corporations across many diverse industries. She stumbled into publishing many years later, after writing her first book. It is titled Mountain Mantras: Wellness and Life Lessons from the Slopes
. Since then, she has written two children’s books, and her latest non-fiction book was released just a couple of weeks ago. It is Look before You Leap: The Smart Author’s Guide to Avoiding the Money Pit and Achieving Financial Success in Publishing
Kathryn’s books have gone on to achieve nine awards and Amazon bestseller status. She is also a coach as well as a publisher, plus she received the 2016-2017 Woman of the Year award from the National Association of Professional Women. She also has an extensive media background, and she has been featured on such outlets as ABC, CBS, Fox, MPR, and other media outlets. Please welcome Kathryn to the show… [bctt tweet="People get so exhausted with the book development, they don’t have the energy for the marketing & publicity." via="no"]
