Our Core Values:
1. Deliver Extraordinary Service
At Motivational Press we believe anything worth doing is worth doing exceptionally well. Motivational Press differentiates ourselves by doing things in an unconventional and innovative way. We go above and beyond the average level of service to create huge WINS for our clients.

2. Embrace and Drive Change
Motivational Press recognizes that the publishing industry is in the midst of transformation. With the arrival of new technology, Motivational Press not only handles the fast-paced change constantly evolving in the publishing world, we embrace it with open arms. Motivational Press never accepts or becomes comfortable with the status quo but is always thinking of ways to change processes, perspectives, and opinions, hopefully for the better.

3. Create Fun and Interactive Collaboration
Motivational Press is committed to making the book publishing world a little more fun and a lot more interconnected. We realize that its good to laugh at ourselves every once in a while. Our work shouldn’t be synonymous with drudgery. Motivational Press is always looking for a chance to fully engage in our work and bring out the fun and interactivity in it.

4. Be Adventurous, Creative and Open-Minded
Motivational Press is bold without being reckless. We’re not afraid to make mistakes because, after all, thats often the best way to learn. Motivational Press takes risks and is open to our clients taking risks too. As long as we learn from them as a team and use them to make better decisions in the future. Motivational Press believes in a gut feeling that can always be tested and evaluated before released publicly. Everyone can develop a gut feeling about business decisions as long as they are open to new ideas.

5. Build Open and Honest Relationships with Communication
Motivational Press is an open book. Our honesty when interacting with others leads to strong relationships built on trust and faith. We use these relationships to accomplish so much more than we could otherwise. It’s not easy getting there! Motivational Press always strives to act in integrity, is compassionate and loyal, and is a good listener. At the end of the day, it’s not what we say or do, but how we make people feel that matters the most to Motivational Press.

6. Build a Positive Team and Family Spirit
Motivational Press wants to build a family, not just a team with our authors. As a manager, we serve those we lead by removing obstacles and enabling our clients to succeed. As a family, we watch out for each other and care for each other. We work together and play together because our bonds go beyond the typical publisher-author relationship.

7. Do More with Less
Motivational Press is always on the lookout for how to make ourselves more efficient and improve our operations. There’s always room for improvement and we always feel a sense of urgency when making those improvements. We strive to not only be a great service company but the greatest service company in the world. We strive to set and exceed our own high standards for getting more done with the same or even fewer resources than before.

8. Be Passionate and Determined
What keeps Motivational Press at the forefront of publishers out there? It’s our passion for our business and our culture. We’re inspired because we believe in what we are doing and where we’re going. We don’t take “That’ll never work” for an answer. We have a positive and optimistic attitude because it inspires everyone around them.

9. Be Humble
Motivational Press knows that despite all the great things the Motivational Press Family has accomplished in the past, there will always be challenges ahead. No matter what happens, we are always respectful of everyone. We love to celebrate our individual and team successes, but not in an arrogant or boastful way. We believe in a quiet confidence because in the long run our character will speak for itself.

Fabulous Publisher!

I'm so happy I chose Motivational Press to publish my books! In addition to doing an outstanding job with the cover, formatting, and other publishing issues, the company has also helped me with various author matters. I've taken outstanding courses in marketing and writing books. Motivational Press has made great press releases for me and made an excellent website, media kit, and speaker's kit. The publisher has done savvy review campaigns. One of these helped my DADLY Wisdom book become an Amazon bestseller. The company also offers consulting for authors, and Justin Sachs, the CEO, has been the best in helping me set and attain writing and marketing goals. He helps me stay on track with my writing when life gets busy. As an author, I hope to inspire the world with my writings, and thanks to Motivational Press, this hope has become a reality!

Motivational Press Inspires Authors To Achieve Their Passions!

High-Tech, High-Touch, High-Quality—are the defining elements of Motivational Press’s business model, their corporate DNA. These are three good reasons as to why I am a returning customer. Yes, they are in the book business and beyond—they are in the learning business; they have electronic books and hard copies; they share knowledge and information not only through standard books, workshops but they also have a robust online presence; and their products inform, entertain and inspire people to achieve their passions.

Great Company To Do Business with!

I have had a fantastic experience with the folks at Motivational Press over the past few years. They are the best hybrid between using a traditional publisher and self publishing. They take care of all the book layout, design, distribution and then pay higher royalties! They get the book on the street in 90 days! Highly recommend and very trustworthy

by Jeremy Bennett on 4/9/2017

Highly Recommend!

Working with Motivational Press was one of the best decisions I have made in my writing career. Super easy to deal with, prompt, and always willing to go out of their way to make sure I am receiving the attention that I need. I would highly recommend any author to work with this amazing group of people. Jeremy Bennett Author of, The Solution: Learn How To Truly Beat Stress & Anxiety

A Publishing Tribe

Motivational Press supports my writing, encourages my creativity, and gives me a feeling of being valued. My questions and requests are always taken seriously and attended to. As an author, that is precisely what I hoped for from my publisher! I have worked with a few other publishing companies before but they didn't behave as though we were all on the same team. However, Justin and the entire staff at Motivational Press treat their authors like part of the tribe. It is refreshing and a necessary ingredient for continued creativity.
