Simple Way To Become An Information Entrepreneur

Written by Jeff Smith

Do you think there is a difference between someone who writes a fiction manuscript and someone else who authors their own instruction, self-help or "how to" book?

This is an interesting question I've asked to many of my book coaching clients, subscribers and customers for our "Ultimate Information Entrepreneur's Success Package" (http://www.infoproductcreator.com)
