Have you dreamed of becoming an author? Of writing a book?
Years ago, Melanie was reading a Christmas letter Hal wrote and laughed aloud, it was so entertaining. She remembers thinking, “Writing is Hal’s true gift, but how in the world could an engineer become a writer? That’s just a silly dream.”
Dreams can come true.
It was only a few short years later that we wrote our first book, Raising Real Men. We’ll never forget the first time it was for sale. Melanie was giving a workshop on parenting boys. At the end, she mentioned, “Hal and I have written a new book. We only brought a couple of boxes.” People got up and started leaving. She was so embarrassed, thinking they didn’t want to hear about it.
Instead, they were racing to buy it.
Within a few months, we were full-time authors and speakers. Unbelievable!
If our dreams can come true, maybe yours can, too.
We’ll show you exactly how we did it — and help you do it, too!
