Richard McMunn’s self-publishing career began when he wrote a guide for prospective firefighters 10 years ago. At the time, McMunn was himself working as a fire fighter and had no idea his guide would go on to be the catalyst for such a successful self-publishing business.
He is currently assisting almost 100 authors achieve success through self-publishing.
His first book was called How To Become A Firefighter and it topok him three months to finish, writing the book after his shifts with the fire service.
The book sold well through Amazon and he found himself having to drive round to post the orders in lots of different post boxes because he was filling them too quickly. He started writing new content and guides and before he knew it, he had 30 guides for sale and his business was booming.
He resigned from the fire service to concentrate on his business, How2Become, which went on to generate a six-figure income.
McMunn puts his success down to including dedicated content that focuses on helping people pass interviews and fitness tests for the jobs that they want.

He also encourages people to self-publish, rather than trying to find a publisher.
