ABOUT SELF-PUBLISHING SCHOOL:

Click here to check out a video from our CEO Chandler Bolt to find out what it’s like to work at Self Publishing School.

Self-Publishing School is an online education company that teaches people how to write, market & publish their first book in as little as 90 days.

We provide people with more opportunities, confidence & income through publishing a book.

Our program is by far the best on the market which is why we have one of the highest student success rates of any online training company. We genuinely care about the success of our students and provide a great avenue for them to be successful.

Our company is driven by 2 unique viewpoints:

  • It’s not about the book. It’s about what the book does for you. We believe that “Books Change Lives” and we believe in the power of “Leveraged Impact” (changing lives through books)
  • In going through the process, our students learn a lot about themselves and conquer fears, challenges & limiting beliefs they never knew existed.


They’re also surprised by all of the opportunities that pop up once their book is out in the world.

The purpose of our company is to disrupt the publishing industry and show people that self-publishing is not only an option, it’s the BEST option.

The publishing industry is broken. Big publishers are antiquated and inefficient. They take advantage of the people doing the hard work…the authors. Our company exists to show people there is a better way…

…a way that doesn’t involve: using a publisher, wasting 2 years of your life, giving away all of your …a way that doesn’t involve: using a publisher, wasting 2 years of your life, giving away all of your creative liberties, giving away all of your book royalties, and relying on a publisher that doesn’t do any marketing for your book.

Self Publishing School made the INC 5000 in 2018 (#2,699) and in 2019 (#1,483) as one of the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in the US.

As we always say, “the best is yet to come”. We’re excited to continue climbing & growing thanks to our incredible team & customers.

There are currently 34 full-time, and several part-time team members at Self Publishing School working remotely from across the country and around the world.

All team members are “A players”, with a love and passion and a drive to do great work and make the world a better place.

You won’t find grumbling, negative co-workers here. People at SPS are passionate and excited about what they do!


About the culture:

Here are the company core values. We call it “The SPS Way”:

  1. Honesty & Integrity Always Win
  2. Fail Fast, Fail Forward, Fail Often
  3. Hard Work & Continuous Improvement
  4. Everyone is Responsible for Facilitating Change
  5. Best Is The Standard

Although the team is virtual at SPS, the culture is alive and well…often referenced as one of employees’ favorite parts about working here.

2-3 times a year the team meets in a unique city in the US (sometimes internationally) for a 3-5 day company retreat…planning the next quarter, connecting in person, having fun, and celebrating wins.

The environment is very fast-paced, and high growth. The company is growing fast, meaning a high level of accountability, responsibility, and autonomy for everyone on the team.

We’re constantly investing in the training & growth of our team members through book clubs, courses, training, and live seminars. All employees are given $15,000+ worth of training and continued education upon being hired by the company.

Since you’re working remotely, you can say goodbye to the dreaded commute (meaning more time for family & fun). This isn’t your average 9-5. Hours are somewhat flexible as long as you get your work done. That being said, due to the growth & pace of the company, it’s not uncommon to work 40-50+ hour weeks.

Because of the company’s growth & hiring needs, there’s a huge opportunity for advancement and promotion if you’re a fast learner.

Overall, the culture of the company is high growth, fun, empowering, and motivating, with support from a world-class team of people who love what they do.

In 2019, Self Publishing School was certified as a “Great Place To Work” by GreatPlaceToWork.com.
