A little bit about Polly...
Polly Letofsky was 37 years old when she sold everything she owned, left her home in Colorado home and started heading west – by foot – to become the first woman to walk around the world. She walked across four continents, twenty-two countries, and over 14-thousand miles.
Over her five years of walking and living one step out of her comfort zone every day, she developed a set of skills in goal setting, creating a clear vision, problem solving, adapting to culture, and team-building. When she wrote her book about walking around the world and got ripped off in the publishing world, that launched her into taking those newly developed skills to start a new business -- My Word Publishing, a company that helps authors professionally self-publish their books while maintaining 100% of all their rights. My Word Publishing has now grown into a publishing library of over 700 books, ten publishing consultants, 35 editors, and representing authors from 14 countries.
