More User Testimonials

"Writing and self publishing my first book was a daunting endeavour. Even more challenging was figuring out how to market it. I was a writer not a marketer, but now I had to be both. What if I could get David to share his expertise with me? Who better to learn from than the master of self publishing himself. And that’s exactly what I did. Okay, I wasn’t lucky enough to enlist David as my personal mentor, but watching The Chilton Method series of videos was the next best thing." - Liisa Atva, The Ask: How Much is a Small Business Worth?

"Dave’s experience gained from marketing the Wealthy Barber and LooneySpoons books, while helping countless other authors, gives him great acumen as to what does and doesn’t work. The course provided clear, specific guidance as to where to allocate valuable time and resources. I thought I would learn a great deal from this program, but it by far exceeded even my high expectations! It will easily pay for itself many times over by helping to focus on techniques that work while avoiding those that don’t." - Murray Baker, The Debt-Free Graduate.
