After reading the Four Hour Work Week by Tim Ferris, Tyler Wagner decided to drop out of college and start his own journey. Being a student with over $80,000 in debt, he didn't have the resources to attend big conferences. Instead, he wanted to go for coaching. Six months later, Tyler contacted event organizers asking for a free ticket to their event. Almost every 100+ events gave him a ticket to their conference. On one occasion, in particular, Mastermind Talks, he met Tim Ferriss backstage.
On His Book, Conference Crushing
After attending these events, Tyler wrote his first book, Conference Crushing - a 70-page guide on networking in events. Going from a dropout to best-selling author, the people who doubted Tyler would make it after becoming a college dropout were now paying attention.
At this point, Tyler was getting paid to speak on stage. So he also started his own tribe, Authors Unite. "I started out with one-on-one coaching that was a low ticket item. At first, it was great." Then his time became minimal with global clients when he realized he hit the ceiling. So Tyler decided to create online courses to scale his business at high-ticket pricing for their book marketing services.
From ghostwriting to book editing, PR, marketing, and media kits, Author's Unite brings the critical services a severe author needs to write, edit, publish and market their book - no matter their industry or vertical.
