33. Becoming the 'Six Figure Woman' - Michelle Kulp
After her e-book languished a year on Amazon.com, Michelle Kulp focused her legal researcher skills on finding out why. “A year later, I published a book called, Never Work Again: Six Secrets to Earning a Playcheck Instead of a Paycheck. In one day I had 2,128 downloads of that book.”
How Did You Start Using Your Talents?
Plunging into a 24-month learning period, Michelle continued her research and worked with a coach. She put everything she’d learned into creating a six-week online course, sold online. Half her students got to the bestseller list. The other half read the course work but decided it was too much work.
The Most Impactful Turning Point?
A career she had loved for years in law gradually changed. Finding herself spending 75 percent of her time doing work she did not like, she began considering other options. A 1992 meeting with singer Billy Ray Cyrus (described on her website) caused her to focus on discovering her dream.
The Most Powerful Lessons Learned?
When she recognized that Amazon.com is a search engine, just like Google, but with one big difference: Amazon has actual buyers. Google has people who are mostly researching, looking for free information. “So, if you publish on Amazon, you’re going to connect with people who are ready to buy.”
