The Publishing Story: Confident Investing
Paul Winkler (founder and owner of Paul Winkler, Inc. had previously self-published his book Confident Investing (by a different name). But the cover wasn’t what he wanted and the content was out of date.
So he reached out to us to update the cover, the content, and the look of the interior design. Plus he wanted to print a medium-sized print run of the book.
Specific Services We Provided
Once we understood the scope of services, we helped him with:
- Total project management
- Cover design
- Interior design and typesetting
- Printing an off-set, medium-sized print run
Our project manager worked closely with Paul’s team throughout the process to make sure the look and feel was what they wanted, the content updates were accurate, and that they could print the books they needed.
They published Confident Investing in January 2019 so investors around the world can better understand investing and become confident investors.
We especially enjoyed working with Paul and his team to create a custom, totally unique cover icon, which was used in different forms throughout the book to denote new sections. Plus, we pressed into the challenge of working with detailed charts and graphs. Even though challenging, this was a fun project because we got to work with four-color interior design to help Paul Winkler publish a top-tier book.
More About the Book
From the back cover.
“When it comes to personal finance, what you don’t know can hurt you. Paul Winkler has successfully set out to fix that. The only mystery is why someone didn’t write this book a long time ago.”—Charlie Wheelan, Ph.D., Senior Lecturer and Policy Fellow Rockefeller Center at Dartmouth University.
“Paul Winkler has written a refreshing, interesting, and educational new book that lays the foundation for developing and maintaining an investment portfolio to meet your own personal goals. Because developing and maintaining such a portfolio is not easy and will require a great deal of behavioral discipline on your part over the years, it is important to follow Paul’s advice to do this by working with a qualified financial coach and using the process map he provides in the book rather than trying to do it by yourself.”—R.
