Hi, my name is Leslie Householder
In the year 2000, I had an experience that absolutely changed my life, so I started teaching classes to help others experience the same kind of transformation.
But that didn't last long, because I was a busy mother of 5 children, with another one on the way. My husband was working more than two hours away from home, while we lived in a 2-bedroom fixer-upper, trying to get it ready to sell. As you can imagine, putting events together on top of all this with any regularity was more than I could handle. But to avoid feeling guilty for not sharing what I had learned, I decided to write a book.
That's when The Jackrabbit Factor was born.
When it was complete, I was convinced that the message it contained was important enough, and powerful enough to have my pick of publishers - but that was not the case.
Every publisher I contacted rejected me. Eventually, out of sheer frustration, I finally threw up my hands and said, "FINE, I'll just do it myself!!"
Through intensive research, and investing in thousands of dollars in training from various book and marketing coaches, I self-published my book and eventually became a three-time best-selling, award-winning, internationally published author of The Jackrabbit Factor, Portal to Genius, and Hidden Treasures: Heaven’s Astonishing Help with Your Money Matters. (I also became a contributing author to multiple Chicken Soup for the Soul publications.)
It was a harrowing journey, fraught with frustration, disappointment, and exhaustion, but it was also exhilarating! I learned a lot, and I know I can save you from a boatload of pain. I hope you'll allow me to help you. I want to save you time, money, and frustration as you go on to successfully achieve ALL of your profitable author goals!

There is truly an unlimited number of ways to create a global reach for your message. As I met other authors who had been successful, I realized that MY best strategies were only a FRACTION of the strategies available for getting your message out in a big way.
That’s why I hand-picked a few other authors to contribute to this program (shown below), who have valuable insights and fascinating experiences of their own from which we can ALL learn. With so many strategies gathered into one place, you'll be able to choose the ones that make the most sense for YOU!
