From the Back Cover
You can create a living by relying on your ingenuity and wit.
The Three Stages to Creating a Niche are:
1. The inspiration. Look inside yourself to find the burning desire and strength to establish your niche, or mission in life.
2. The creation of your book. You'll learn how to write and self-publish your book.
3. The promotion of your message. Reach out and share your book and your message through an assortment of potent techniques, including videos, radio interviews, and the internet.
Dissatisfaction with the status quo, or being laid off a job, may be an opportunity to change the direction of your life, and a chance to get on a path where you could determine your own fate.
Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
More About the Author
My first book, "Fix em Up, Rent em Out," was an award-winning finalist in the 2008 National Best Book Awards (USA Book News). This was followed by, "Turn Your Home Into a Rental House Instead of Selling It," co-authored by my wife, Angy. It was named BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR by USA Book News.
Along with Angy and sons, Jason and Bryan (affectionately known as "I want" and "buy me,"), I continue to buy houses, repair them, and rent them out. I also teach classes and seminars on "Mr. Lincoln and Storytelling" and "Inspire and Engage your Audience with Stories."

Terry has a very interesting story to tell about how he started investing in real estate, and what prompted him to take that "next step" and write his books. This book is a quick and easy read that is sprinkled with quotes. I found it both informative and entertaining at the same time.
In his newest book "Carve out Your Niche", Terry talks about creating your perfect life; one that allows you to live your passion. He also gives us a blueprint for telling "our story" or writing the book that lives inside of us. He manages to break down this subject so well that we are left feeling like we too can do it.
Terry covers important topics such as identifying your niche. He defines your niche as "the world you live in; a world that you create that is built around a profession that is spiritually satisfying to you".
He also talks about how his niche of buying fixer upper houses has created a better, more secure life for him. This book is not only for folks interested in real estate investing, but for anyone committed to creating a better life for themselves. Terry demystifies the whole process of how to write a book and get it published.
Last but not least, he breaks down all of the components of marketing your book to the masses. This information alone is worth the price of the book.Read more ›
And so it is with this latest offering from one of the most practical, mellow and laid-back author's in this genre I have ever read. Terry Sprouse is real, has his feet planted firmly in reality, and is willing to share is wisdom with all of us. More about wisdom later).
In this book, the author has turned his hand to the self publishing industry which is becoming wildly popular. As with his first work, Mr. Sprouse has kept his head out of the clouds and unlike so many books of this nature, has not promised the reader that they will become the latest Stephen King, Earnest Hemingway, or James Patterson. No, we are given a very nice little game plan to help supplement income, have some fun, explore new world and indeed, help other people.Read more ›
I found his unique "Inspiration, Creation, Promotion model" to be a real valuable tool, giving me food for thought regarding my own life plan. Terry gives really practical advice and ideas to follow to make yourself a place in the market, and I mean "your-self". Terry explains how every person has the experience in a particular area of their interest that they can become an expert in, and passionately make money from and teach others to do the same. In this book I was taught to celebrate my individuality, to embrace it and not follow anybody's path but my own. Therein lies your own niche. Once you become an expert and build a business you can write about it and make a ton of money. This is powerful stuff. The author goes into great detail about how to write a book and even set up a company, it's like a manual for life. It's encyclopaedic detail of creating, designing and marketing books is second to none, this is really an all encompassing book.
There was also a deep spiritual message to this book which resonated with me, the idea that we're here on a mission and that our personal fulfilment will only come once we begin working on our mission. The book talks about gut feelings, inner guidance, meditation and I really feel this to be true, I think this book has helped me make some decisions about going forward in my life. The story about the "2 million year old man" really got me thinking.Read more ›
