The #1 thing your book, brand, and business needs even more than greater visibility
What would you give in exchange for more of it? Your reputation? Bank account? Friends or family? Your soul?
The quality of your soul is much more valuable than the quantity of your followers.
Your book, brand, and business doesn't need more visibility. Rather, it needs more vision. When we lose our way—which we all do—we're tempted to go after a quick fix...visibility. However, in these moments, what we truly need is something else...vision.

I talk about this in Elixir Project a book that took me more than 2 years to research and write. Since the release of Elixir Project a few months ago, we’ve been getting countless emails, messages, and letters from readers who said the story helped them regain a clear vision for their lives.
And that’s why I’ve personally bought you a hardcover copy of Elixir Project ($29.99 retail value). I’d like to physically mail you the book. It’s FREE for you. All I ask is that you cover the shipping and handling.
Each copy comes with an orange envelope contain
