Paul Newton, May 2019 guest speaker #2:
“The Expert Author Effect—How to Write a Book that Automates Your Sales and Marketing”

Dr. Paul Newton, a 20+ year entrepreneur, built four chiropractic practices, two of which he grew to multiple-six-figures. He credits his success to creating a steady stream of new patients through public speaking. He sold his last location in 2012 to devote his energy to professional speaking and coaching. A year later he partnered with Bob Burnham, a multiple-seven-figure entrepreneur and publisher, to co-found Celebrity Expert Author, a marketing company that specializes in positioning entrepreneurs as the leading expert in their field with a bestselling book. He is the author of two Amazon #1 Best-Selling books and his company has helped hundreds of business owners achieve this status. He regularly addresses entrepreneurs about why a book is the best tool for growing your business and raising your prices.

He was amazed to find that being a published author gave him more credibility than being a doctor and that he was able to replace his practice income within just 3 months of publishing his first book. He now works with clients internationally from his home and schedules them around his favorite activities of snowboarding, standup paddle boarding, and high-intensity training.
