I am a professional ghostwriter. My passion is to help authors strengthen their brand, establish their credibility and prove their expertise. I've written and published 63 books on a variety of subjects (including 2 bestsellers), and ghostwritten 16 books. Previous to my writing career, I was the Director of Computer Operations for Trader Joe’s Company for 20 years, and before that the Vice President of Consulting for two computer firms. Some of my works include Focus on LinkinIn (an Amazon bestseller), Cyberheist (for KnowBe4), and Digitize or Die (as book coach).

Have you been thinking about writing a book seemingly forever but can't find the time? Do you have an idea for a book but you are not a professional writer?
That's where I come in. My mission is to listen and understand, and then clearly convey your message in your book so you get results. With over 35 years of experience as a senior manager and leader with a strong technical background, I can write about virtually any subject and help you get noticed. I've ghostwritten several books about subjects as varied as the Internet of Things, Computer Security, Product Sales, Property Management and dentistry.
Do you feel like a failure because you can't get more business or your hunt for a job goes on and on? Is every day a constant struggle to get by? Are you beginning to feel like there is no way to get ahead in this world?
I know how you feel because I've been there, and I've coached hundreds of friends and team members with the exact same problem.
Is it even possible for anyone to succeed in today's fast-moving and technical world?
However, if you look around, you will find there are people who succeeded. For example, Tony Robbins and billionaires like Bill Gates or Warren Buffett have made it big. How did they do this? Do they know a secret or was it just dumb luck?
There is a secret to their success, an overriding principle hidden deep underneath their accomplishments. Even Donald Trump used this secret to get where he is today.
Can you learn this secret? I'll tell what it is: you have to engage in professional networking. Just as important, you must do networking correctly to succeed.
Inside this book, you'll learn about business networking from real-world examples. When I first started as the Vice President of Consulting for a computer company, every day was a constant struggle to find customers. My stress went through the roof and my temper was short. I had to get the business flowing or we'd fail and it would be my fault. In desperation, I began to form a business network, reaching out to other professionals, talking to them and forming business relationships. My life started to change; everything got easier, and before long the projects were coming in seemingly on their own.
Later, when I decided to find a new job, I reached out to the people in my network, and within days had dozens of interviews, and, in a few short weeks found myself working two high-paying jobs at the same time.
You can use networking to prosper like you never have before.
In this book, you’ll learn:
The power of three simple words: Know, Like and Trust. Mastering these words and their meanings opens up a world of possibilities.
How to super-charge your professional network.
How to use your network effectively.
What you need to do to make your network work for you.
You'll learn all of this and more in the pages of this book. By the time you have finished, you'll know exactly what you need to do to succeed.
For the past 35 years, I've used networking to succeed as a Vice President of two companies and the Director of Computer Operations at Trader Joe's. I acquired customers for two consulting companies, and supported over 1,500 computers at Trader Joe's with a small staff of 8 people. All of this was accomplished by using the techniques described in this book.
You can continue barely making ends meet or you can learn from a leader and expert with 35 years of experience in business and industry.
Are you tired of getting little to no response from your LinkedIn profile? Is your LinkedIn profile a disaster? Is it so bad that you'd be afraid if your boss, a client or a potential employer saw it?
I get it. A few years ago my LinkedIn profile was barren with just a few paragraphs from my resume. I didn't understand the purpose of LinkedIn, and had no idea how to use it to my advantage. Since I'm a professional writer, it was almost shameful.
Did you know that if you have a poorly written LinkedIn profile you may as well be walking away from money sitting on the table? It's true - a properly written LinkedIn profile, used correctly, will result in leads from potential clients, employers, and other interested parties.
How do I know this? Like I said, a few years ago my LinkedIn profile was a disaster. That is, it was until Donna Serdula of LinkedIn Makeover helped me rewrite my profile to top-of-the-line standards.
Inside Focus on LinkedIn, you'll learn everything you need to know to write or rewrite your profile to attract your target audience, whether that be an employer for a new job or clients for your business.
Inside Focus on LinkedIn you'll:
Understand the unique importance of LinkedIn, which is one of the best ways to get employers and clients to come to you. Best of all, they'll be pre-qualified leads, for the most part, which means they are ready to hire or buy your products and services.
Increase your qualified leads by targeting your LinkedIn to the right audience.
Decrease the time you spend fruitlessly searching for anyone who will buy your products or services, or offer you a position in their company.
Explode the size of your professional network by spending as little as a few hours optimizing your professional brand on LinkedIn.
Define your Personal Brand and deliver an effective message to build a Professional Network that looks to you for answers.
Increase your business or job offers by several times the current level.
Increase your earnings while reducing the time you spend with unqualified leads and employers.
You'll learn all of this and much more within Focus on LinkedIn.
My name is Richard Lowe Jr, and I am a Senior LinkedIn Branding Expert, trained by Donna Serdula of LinkedIn Makeover. I am the Senior Writer and Owner of The Writing King, and have written several books about professional branding, business networking and social media.
You can continue to ignore the power of LinkedIn and by doing so pass up on countless qualified leads from clients or employers, or you can learn how to write your own LinkedIn profile from an expert with 35 years of experience.

Are you upset knowing that you have real writing talent, but no one buys your books? Are you embarrassed to tell your friends you've written a book because your sales are so pathetic?
I've been there. I was so proud when I published my first book, it was an incredible accomplishment. I told my best friend, and he shrugged and said, "how many have you sold?" I was ashamed to tell him not even my family and friends bought a copy, and resolved not to tell anyone else until I got a royalty check I was proud of.
Does this sound familiar? You've worked hard to write your book, and now your friends are mocking you for only making $20 for six months of difficult, creative work.
At least, that's what happened to me. It pains me to say that I made twenty whole dollars after six months. Even though the quality of the book was fantastic, I couldn't even get my friends to shell out five bucks for a copy.
But I put those six months to effective use and found out how to do it right. This book shares those hard-earned lessons that I've learned with you.
Inside this book, I'm going to talk about how to research and a topic that sells, how to write your book, how to publish it and how to market yourself so people want to buy anything you create.
I explain how you need to research your topics so you don't spend time writing a book that no one wants to buy. Nothing is more frustrating than that.
Next, you'll learn how to write your book, so that your reader understands your message and appreciates what you've written.
Third, you'll learn how and where to publish your masterpiece in simple terms that are easy to understand.
Next, you'll learn how to form a network of dedicated fans who are not only interested in your work, but demand more books from you and share everything you write with their friends.
You'll learn all of this and more in the pages of this book.
Over the past couple of years, after mastering these techniques, I wrote and published 63 books, including a bestseller, and am highly sought after as a ghostwriter and blogger. As the owner and senior writer of The Writing King, I understand how to write, publish and sell books, and am happy to pass along these techniques to you.
You can continue like you are doing now, hit or miss, or you can learn from an expert with 35 years’ experience in the industry.
Stop the endless "publish and pray" cycle.
