You Said It

 Another success story from APSS member Denise M. Baran-Unland: My team and I have not only learned practical tips that actually work, we've learned the strategies that make them work. Since 2020, we have learned more through (APSS) than through all other sources combined - ever since I started writing my first book in 2008. And we have increased our sales every year because of it.

  • I've also received several invitations to speak this year and sold books at every event.
  • A local TV station has contacted me to schedule an interview.
  • I have one corporation that is potentially interested in purchasing books in bulk.
  • I have a presentation scheduled with a government agency in early 2024, the result of a successful meeting with its board chair.
