Technology and social change have come together to present us with an absolutely incredible opportunity. We can publish a book and put it out to millions of people all over the world at no cost and zero risk of failure.

An award-winning writer and author, Chapman has delivered more than 300 seminars and talks throughout the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia. From 2003-2010, he was the president of Publishers & Writers of San Diego (PWSD), a professional association with nearly 500 members and affiliates, and a regular instructor at the Independent Book Publishers Association University.
He began his formal education in publishing as editor-in- chief of his high school newspaper and concluded with a Bachelor's Degree in Publishing from George Mason University, earned with a 4.0 GPA. During this time, he also self-published his first book, landed his first book deal, and started his first publishing venture — all at the age of 21.
Professional highlight: Being chosen out of 548 applicants from all over the world to be part of a 15-person group coached by best-selling author and marketing mastermind Seth Godin at his office for one full week in 2014.
