Business Fables

Why A Business Fable?

They’re the easiest, most powerful way to build your platform, create authority, drive business and attract new clients, get speaking engagements, and separate yourself from the competition.

And they’re fun.

Why Michael For Your Business Fable?

Michael Levin has ghostwritten more business fables than probably any writer alive.  In addition, he’s published five novels of his own – three with Simon & Schuster and two with Penguin/Putnam.  His work has been optioned and/or made by ABC, Disney, Paramount, and Steven Soderbergh – so he knows how to tell a story!

Also, if you’re going to hire a writer to do a business fable, you need one who understands the business world. 

As an entrepreneur, Michael started and sold his prior ghostwriting company,  Maybe you saw his Shark Tank episode!  (Season 3, episode 1.)

In his 30+ years as a ghostwriter, Michael has planned, written, or edited more than 800 business books…including two New York Times best sellers and an Amazon Kindle #1 business best seller.

Michael’s clients have ranged from CEOs like Alan Mullaly (former CEO of Boeing and Ford), financial services professionals at firms including MorganStanley, top business consultants, broadcasters including Chris Myers, Pat Summerall, and Leeza Gibbons, NFL athletes including Chad Henning, Maurice Jones-Drew, and Ben Watson, Baseball Hall of Famer Dave Winfield, and many more.

What’s Michael’s Process?

First comes the “test drive” phase.  You and Michael will brainstorm on several phone or Zoom calls to determine the lessons the book will teach, the story the book will tell, and the characters in the story.  Michael will then write the first 20 pages for your review and you’ll edit them with him.  If you’re happy with what you see, then you’ll go forward to complete the book.  If not, you can use the plan and the work with another writer and owe nothing further.

How Long Does It Take?

The whole process takes 90 to 120 days.

How Much Does It Cost?

The fee for the test drive is $12,500.

The total fee is $45,000 for up to 100 double spaced pages, $65,000 for up to 150 double spaced pages, and $85,000 for up to 200 double spaced pages.

The final “deliverable” is the complete manuscript, copy edited and ready to publish.  Michael will guide you in the publishing process and introduce you to the publishers with whom he has worked repeatedly. 

He can also show you how to market and monetize your fable. Ask about the “Book Monetization Initiative.”
