A results-focused membership community that teaches entrepreneurs, small businesses, coaches, consultants, freelancers, and agency owners how to get published, paid, and featured by large publications such as Forbes, Inc. Magazine, Entrepreneur, Business Insider, Fortune, SUCCESS Magazine, Fast Company, O Magazine, and more.
You’ll learn how to build your business, increase revenue, make a global impact, and book lucrative global corporate training opportunities.
Become a contributor and have your written, audio, and video content published on the largest publications in the world. How amazing would it be to see your profile on Forbes, Inc. Magazine, Entrepreneur, Business Insider, Fortune, SUCCESS Magazine, Fast Company, O Magazine, and more?
Not only is getting published in large publications great brand credibility for your business, but you can also get paid for your articles. Whoever said that you can’t have it all is wrong. You can create content for the millions of large publication readers, and you can generate thousand of additional dollars in extra revenue.
Having your written, audio, and video content published on large publications can help you build a large email list, sell books and products, build a lead generation system, get paid to write, and bring in new consulting clients. Large publications are social proof that’s understood by all, and just what you need to get consumers to hop off the fence and do business with you. You can build every part of your business.
Book Corporate Opportunities
Corporations will spend $385 billion dollars on training and consultants this year according to Forbes. That number will increase to over $400 billion dollars in 2022. The average corporate consultant makes $175,000 a year according to USA Today. If you’ve never thought about booking corporate opportunities, you’re missing out. You can get paid per training, license your online courses per employee, and set up training programs.
Listen, we get it.
You’ve used funnels, run paid ads, have a Facebook group, and tried all the latest marketing strategies. You’re posting consistently on social media but it feels like your message is getting lost in the noise. You feel like you’re still not reaching enough people.
With over 4.5 billion people using the internet every day, the opportunity to reach potential clients is exciting, but the noise can be even louder. Your consumer is being inundated with ads, inbox sales offers, and constant retargeting. They just don’t know what to do, and they’re tired of not getting value.
The reality is that the online business space is a red ocean where everyone is trying to go after the same client base using the same strategies. Your consumer is tired of being sold to every day in a cold way.
They’ve spent thousands of dollars on courses, coaching, products, and services that didn’t deliver or weren’t the right fit. Some of their experiences have been good, some terrible. Your consumer has trauma from previous negative experiences, and it affects their decision-making when they look at what you offer.
You know that if you could just find a way to show more people the true value you bring to the table, you’ll be able to break through the noise and reach your next level of business growth. You’ll be able to find and book ideal clients. You’ll be able to charge for the content that you work so hard to create.
You’re Working Too Hard.
You’ve put your blood, sweat, and tears into developing your skills, and you know what you offer has undeniable value. You KNOW it’s time to significantly increase the number of people who recognize what your business does.
Right now, your ideal target customers are consuming more content. They’re in a different place in their value investing journey and are very particular about what they’ll invest in. Standing out and having brand authority is important.
How much time are you spending:
- Working hard to find ideal clients who actually understand what you offer and are willing to invest.
- Writing daily posts (all over the interwebs) that don’t convert into consistent sales, and that only a few dozen people will ever see.
- Trying to break through the noise on social media, where every other post is from someone selling.
- Fighting price shoppers who question the value of what you offer.
This is NOT how you should be spending your time. You should be spending your time making an impact and serving high-end clients who love to pay you and see your value clearly. You should be publishing content in the places that give you visibility, create more brand authority, and lead to increased revenue.
And the way to do that? The way to stand out and attract these clients? And have people chase you to work with you because they know you’re worth every penny?
Get published & paid in large publications. Book corporate opportunities.
Hi, we’re Kimanzi and Cindy Constable
We’ve helped over two thousand entrepreneurs become contributors to over 100 large publications, and taught them how to leverage them to generate two million dollars plus for their business. We’ve help entrepreneurs secure over three million dollars in booked corporate training, licensing, and content services.
This is in addition to us having been published in 80 large publications and magazines ourselves and having done corporate gigs in 79 countries.

Join a community of fire starters that are committed to getting published & paid this year. Learn how to make your content work for you.
Think about it.
You’re already creating and publishing content all the time on social media, but you don’t get to put “Featured by Facebook Newsfeed” on your website to build brand authority. So, why not put that content on a platform that will:
- Give you access to an always new and high-level audience of potential consumers.
- Build backlinks for your website so that you can leverage Google’s search results and maximize one of the most powerful inbound lead generation opportunities in the world.
- Get organic opportunities just because you have publications such as Entrepreneur, Forbes, and Inc. Magazine showcasing your expertise.
The numbers tell a story:
- Inc. Magazine gets 69.19 million monthly visitors.
- Forbes gets 121.1 million monthly visitors.
- Entrepreneur gets 63.13 million monthly visitors.
- Fast Company gets 40.3 million monthly visitors.
- Business Insider gets 100.8 million monthly visitors.
Maybe you already know about the power of large publications and tried, but one of these things happened…
- You poured your heart into a piece just to get a rejection letter saying the article isn’t the “right fit at this time.”
- The editor had you checking your inbox for weeks until you finally realized, “they’re not going to accept my pitch.”
- You paid someone to get you featured and it turned out to be a high-cost flop.
All of these “failures” have left you thinking maybe you just can’t get in. And if you haven’t tried before, it’s probably because of one of these reasons:
- Someone, somewhere gave you the impression that large publications are reserved for industry leaders with millions of followers.
- You were told you need more experience before you could get accepted.
- Some little voice inside of you whispered, “I’m not good enough,” when you thought about giving it a shot. “Who am I to think I’m good enough to get a spot in Inc. Magazine? I don’t own a billion-dollar business.”
Sound about right? Listen, we’ve helped thousands of entrepreneurs step into the shoes of success and get published & paid.
Take a Different Approach
There’s a way to get accepted as a contributor to large publications, and it just requires a strategy that no one is talking about. There are two types of approaches online…
Type one is doing what the industry has taught them.
They’re on social media every day. Live streams for breakfast on Facebook, and outreach on LinkedIn for dinner. Putting in a ton of work and eventually finding a couple of willing leads who still want to undercut the price to “give you a shot.”
Type one has an inconsistent lead generation system. Maybe they come across one “big” month where they get a high-ticket client and get to relax a little. They start to see the light just to find that the next month they’re back on the battlefield hunting for that next big break that is too far and few between to be sustainable.
Why does this happen?
Because there is a LOT of bad advice out there. You’re being told that you’re not a real expert if you don’t have 10,000 hours under your belt. You’re being told that you have to hustle to build a 100,000 person following on Instagram to finally live the life you really want as an entrepreneur who has value to bring to the table.
You’re being told to do everything other than the one thing that will make your entire industry stop in their tracks. But, let’s talk about type two.
Type two is getting inquiries every day from high-level entrepreneurs and other publications. Type two is killing it and rarely gets questioned about their value because of the large publications they’re in. Why? Their ideal target consumers see their brand credibility.
Social proof is only effective if the person you’re marketing to gets it. There are a lot of things people might understand but they definitely understand being published & paid in Inc. Magazine, Forbes, Business Insider, Entrepreneurs, etc.
We teach entrepreneurs how to become contributors and use large publications to demonstrate their expertise. We teach you how to be in control of your destiny instead of chasing media attention. When you’re a contributor, people come to you — you don’t have to sell them on your value.
