#1 International Bestselling Author!

Ahem.

My name is Patty Soffer and I’m a #1 International Bestselling Author.

 

Holy crap! I never thought I’d get to utter those words in my whole life. Yet here it is.1393760_10202107915283106_580299908_n

WE DID IT!

I write for a living—ad copy, marketing copy, business articles, strategic documents and yes, books, books books. I have become an expert because I have done a million things in my life, both good and not so good. And I don’t think about writing or say I’m gonna write. I actually write. All the time.

You do by doing. No duh.

It pays off! This particular book, The Expert Success Solution, was a collaboration of 22 incredibly gifted, experienced, talented, funny, quirky, educated individuals led by publishing expert Rick Frishman and business leader Wendy Lipton-Dibner, who all understood something simple: We were experts in different areas and we were all writers. We all wanted to share our experience that would help others have a better business and life.

So the question became simple: Why would anyone buy 22 books when they could buy just 1?

That made sense, so off we went. After a 9-month gestation, with not one power play, temper tantrum or any other inappropriateness, the book was born this week, and in no time shot to #2 in the US and #1 in Canada.

Talk about a partnership. Responsibility. Accountability. Service. Education. Creativity. Shared values. Humility. Gratitude. The Entrepreneurial Spirit. This experience was off the charts.

I’m still in the clouds. I haven’t slept. I’m excited beyond all reason. But the best part? This book was written by service-minded people, so its contents will help those who read it.

I’ll paraphrase author and legendary TedTalker Simon Sinek, one of my heroes, by saying this: I’m not going to blather on about how “if this book could help just one person I’ll be happy. . ..”

Hell no. One ain’t enough, not by a long shot.

I pray this book touches the lives of millions of people and makes a positive difference for them.

Otherwise, what’s the point?

I want to thank my peeps who have hung with me, some for a lifetime. I could cry.

P.S. Here’s what grace looks like. Say hello to my co-authors. They rock.
