Children’s books are a great way to diversify your income and make an impact. Whether it’s because you want to do it as a business, leave a legacy message to the next generation, or just do something that’s out of your comfort zone, children’s books are a great way to call in new opportunities and customers.
I’m joined by children’s book author and publisher Miriam Laundry to discuss the benefits of writing a children’s book, what you can expect from the publishing process, and some effective tools to make this dream a reality. Miriam originally set out with the goal to empower 100,000 children to believe in themselves. She’s since gone on to quantifiably have an impact on over 1 million children simply through children’s books. Miriam is the real deal and I can’t wait for you to hear our conversation about what happens when you’re consistent, tenacious, and passionate.

(5:03) Chris asks Miriam, “I’d love to kind of back up before we get to the whole children book empire talk and start out with your entrepreneurial story. Is that cool with you?”
(11:17) Chris asks Miriam, “A lot of people want to write a children’s book, don’t they?”
(13:10) Chris asks Miriam, “Can you tell us about how you were able to work out such a partnership with Jack Canfield?”
(15:55) Chris asks Miriam, “What was the world record that you were trying to set that got you into the Guinness Book of World Records?”
(17:20) Chris asks Miriam, “You’ve actually gone on now to quantifiably have an impact on over 1 million children simply through children’s books. Unpack that for me a little bit.”
(20:21) Chris asks Miriam, “Of the 50 books that you’ve helped other people publish, what percentage of those were people doing because they wanted it to be a small income source? And what percentage were just because they wanted to check if off their bucket list and get a message out to children?”
(22:23) Chris asks Miriam, “Let’s talk about the ones that did it for a side hustle or for a small income.”
(25:34) Chris asks Miriam, “How long does it take to write a good children’s book?”
