Welcome to the Action Takers Authors Blog!
Are you tired of feeling unfulfilled in your corporate job? Do you dream of becoming an entrepreneur and following your passion? Then let me introduce you to Lynda Sunshine West, the founder and CEO of Action Takers Publishing Inc. This is her story of how she went from feeling unfulfilled in the corporate world to living her dream and passion every day by founding Action Takers Publishing Inc.
Jumping Out of Corporate and Into Entrepreneurship
After spending 36 years in the corporate world with 49 different jobs (20 years as a legal secretary with her last job working for a judge in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals), Lynda Sunshine finally decided to take a leap of faith at the age of 51 and pursue her dream of entrepreneurship. She spent the first seven years as an entrepreneur trying to figure out what business to run, who to serve, and how to make money until she discovered her passion for book publishing.
Book publishing was an odd choice for her because she was never a reader or a writer and had no interest in either. However, in 2015, when she decided to break through one fear every day for an entire year because she realized her fears were stopping her from living her life, things started to shift.
The Self-Help Journey
She started reading self-help books like "Three Feet From Gold" by Greg Reid and Sharon Lechter, "The Success Principles" by Jack Canfield, "Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook" by Gary Vaynerchuk, "Never Eat Alone" by Keith Ferrazzi, the Entrepreneur's Bible "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill, and many others. These books were the start of a transformation that Lynda Sunshine wasn't expecting.
Her first step into the Authorship Journey was signing up to be part of a collaboration book (a book where several people come together to write just one chapter) and it was a great way to get started. That was in 2015, the year she was breaking through one fear every day for a year.
Breaking Through One Fear Every Day for a Year
After the year was done, her mentor, Greg Reid, highly recommended that she write her own book about breaking through fears every day for a year. So she wrote "The Year of Fears."
After "The Year of Fears" was published, she asked herself a simple question: "I was in a book, I wrote my own book, what is my next natural state of progression?" That was when she decided to follow her mentor's footsteps and put together her own collaboration book.
It was May of 2020, and Lynda Sunshine launched her first collaborative book, "Momentum: 13 Lessons From Action Takers Who Changed the World." What started as a "fun thing to do" turned into something much greater than she ever imagined.
With her newfound passion of writing, bringing people together to share their stories, and helping people get their messages into the world to make a greater impact on the planet, Lynda Sunshine continued to publish her next two books, "The Fearless Entrepreneurs" and "Invisible No More; Invincible Forever More," both of which became #1 International Bestselling books in less than five hours.
Founding Action Takers Publishing
Lynda Sunshine realized that book publishing was her true calling and asked Sally Green, a speaker and multiple-time International Bestselling Author, to join her mission of empowering 5 million women and men to share their stories. Sally agreed and became the Vice President of Author Development at Action Takers Publishing. The team continues to grow, and with Lynda Sunshine and Sally at the helm, it's a well-oiled machine.
