The Book Cot – Mayowa’s publishing agency that helps busy and successful entrepreneurs write and publish a book without the time it takes writing and publishing the traditional way
A Word From Our Sponsor: The Book Cot
A book is the #1 way to establish your credibility, authority, and expertise (next to being featured on Oprah..even then, a book will dramatically increase your chances!)
The #1 way to differentiate yourself (next to being featured on reality TV) is to write a book and use that to establish your presence in the market, exhibit your dominance and demonstrate your authority.
At The Book Cot, we’re committed to helping you amplify your reach, build your credibility online, become an instant authority and get more leads for your business with a published book.
We’re a professional publishing agency that makes the process of writing and publishing a book an easy walk for busy entrepreneurs who know the power of a published book, want to write and publish one but are too busy having fun running their businesses.
Since 2018, our proven system has helped hundreds of entrepreneurs, thought leaders, coaches, consultants, and experts become instant authority while leveraging their published books to get speaking gigs, invited to speak at conferences and guests on top podcasts.
What do you need to write and publish your best business card – a book with your name?
When you use our proven system, all you need is an idea, your expertise, and the end goal you want from having a published book.
We handle the content, and production processes like writing, editing, proofreading, cover design, publishing, and distribution – you need to block off some hours of your time for a week to “speak” your book. Then we handle the rest of the process.
And we don’t stop at that!
We also give you a proven blueprint you can copy to use your book to get more visibility, get on podcasts as a guest to share your expertise, and get more leads and paying clients for your business.
We focus on ensuring you have a direct path to ROI, which is the most important component. Plus, our entire book production system takes any heavy lifting of writing, preparing, and publishing a book off your plate.
We have also made business networking and becoming a published author work together in one single way.
For busy and successful entrepreneurs who might not be ready to take on a solo book project, we also have many multi-author book projects they can join as co-author for a fraction of the time and financial resources it will take to write and publish a solo book.
We have created a system for like-minded experts, thought leaders, coaches and consultants to share their stories and expertise in one book.
The relationships you form through these multi-author book projects on their own are worth more than their weight in gold.
You can become an instant authority in your field or niche while connecting with 10 to 20 amazing entrepreneurs like you with whom you share the same passion and getting exposure to the audience they have built for years.
Are you considering having a book in your name for more visibility, credibility, and the instant authority you get from becoming a published author? Would you like to work with a book publishing agency that wants you to win?
The Book Cot founder, Mayowa Ajisafe, has been in the book publishing space and advising about book publishing since 2014.
Hi everyone, my name is Mayowa Ajisafe and I’m the host of the Six Figure Entrepreneur Podcast.
And this podcast is something I started just for one single reason is to build a business from grand zero and from the scratch to a six figure business, or even more. It’s not really an easy thing.
And there are amazing entrepreneurs out there who have started and built something amazing, a business that actually solved a particular problem for the market and they have done so well.
And why not just bring these people share their stories to inspire and motivate upcoming and aspiring entrepreneurs to do more and to keep the entrepreneurial fire burning?
So every single episode of this show I sit down and have conversations with six figure entrepreneurs and even people who have built seven figure businesses from the scratch to share their story, to discuss about how they got started, how they got their first client, and how their business has evolved over time, the lessons they have learned, and also their expertise and their experience so that aspiring entrepreneurs out there can have something to hold on to, to also do the same thing that these awesome entrepreneurs have done.
And if you’re wondering, who am I to be a host of the Six Figure Entrepreneur Podcast?
Just like I mentioned before, my name is Mayowa and this is my own entrepreneurial story.
In 2011, after two years of leaving the University, I said I to myself. I needed a job and I just don’t want to have a job.
I want to have my dream job.
My dream job is working as a business development manager in a real estate company, even though I studied computer science in school.
And in two weeks I got my dream job.
But just a few months after my dream job, I’m not really fulfilled.
I only lasted six months and I left my only 9 to 5 job.
I left with just a few savings and my first business after I left my job really failed before I even started.
I started that business with a partner and I spent all my savings on that business and it failed woefully.
So I was broke and for almost two years.
I have to struggle and work my ass off to just make something work. And what I was doing then?
I stumbled upon a podcast back in 2012 that taught me how to write and publish a book.
I just picked up interested in publishing and writing books and that is how AuthosCrib.com, which then was just a resource blog to teach authors what I was learning at that time.
Over time, I started getting better in publishing and marketing of books.
And in 2014, my breakthrough finally came.
I got my first client who just reach out to me on Google, found me on Google, and reach out to me.
And I was paid $1,000 and that was very awesome for me.
That was the beginning of my entrepreneurial success.
And since then, I have worked with aspiring authors to write, publish and market their books.
And also, I have been a serial entrepreneur who has built ecommerce businesses along the line.
I just discovered that there are many entrepreneurs rising up today because entrepreneurship, when I started, was not really an amazing thing it was right now, then
Right now, entrepreneurship is a shiny thing people are proud to talk about.
Family and friends I can remember went against me and actually thought I was crazy and maybe I was crazy.
So I have been seeing entrepreneurs out there who are struggling to make their business work, who are actually struggling to build a business.
And why not create a platform where I can have amazing entrepreneurs like me to share their story and share their best tips and advice?
So this show will be released at least twice in a week.
And the format of the episode is very simple.
I asked my guests to introduce themselves. They would dive straight into the background.
We learn about them, how they got started, how they got their first client, and how their business has evolved.
You even get to listen to their revenue, like how they’re making money, what’s structure their businessed is right now, the lesson they have learned.
And also then we transition to the question round where I have to throw some awesome and amazing and inspiring questions.
I asked this amazing entrepreneur who are my guests on the show, some questions that are thought provoking that any listener listening will surely learn from.
After that, you just ask them where we can connect with them.
So that’s just a brief detail of the show format.
