About Your Host

Rachel Rodgers is the bestselling author of We Should All Be Millionaires: A Woman’s Guide to Earning More, Building Wealth, and Gaining Economic Power.

Rachel’s debut book sold more than 200,000 copies, hit the Wall Street Journal bestseller list, was named one of Audible’s Top Audiobooks of the Year, and led to media appearances on Good Morning America, The Drew Barrymore Show, and more.

Following the success of her first book, Rachel negotiated 2 additional deals with HarperCollins Leadership plus a 3-book deal with Audible.

Since Rachel’s first book came out, her company, Hello Seven, experienced a surge in visibility— growing from $2 million in annual revenue to $12 million.

Rachel believes that if you have the desire to write a book, this desire is arising for a reason. Someone's life will be forever changed because of the words that you write. 

However, to make 6 or 7 figures from your book, you need to be smart and strategic. With the right plan, you can make your book a massive success not only creatively but financially, too.

Who You'll Meet Who You'll Meet Who You'll Meet Who You'll Meet Who You'll Meet Who You'll Meet Who You'll Meet Who You'll Meet

My long-time writing partner. You’ve seen Alex’s clients and their books on the Wall Street Journal bestseller list, Amazon bestseller list, winning the NAACP Image Award (Outstanding Instructional Literary Work), Pinnacle Book Award, featured in The New York Times, Forbes, Parade, and numerous other accolades and media outlets.

Founder of an award-winning PR and publicity firm. She got me (and my books) featured on Good Morning America, The Drew Barrymore Show, in The New York Times, and more. She represents household names like Tony Hawk and Christy Turlington. And, she loves educating authors on how to get major press even if you don’t have a publicist (yet).

My NYC literary agents who represents authors like Dolly Parton, Gabrielle Bernstein, Tracy Anderson, and Misty Copeland. They are looking for projects that have great publicity potential. They have provided 6-figure book deals for existing clients of Hello Seven. Do you have a book idea that they ought to know about?

“Writing a book was one of the best things I’ve done as an entrepreneur and CEO.

My book led to priceless media opportunities and brought thousands of new customers to my company—people who discovered us because of the book.

My business grew exponentially between 2020 and 2023 thanks in part to my book and the visibility it created.

If you want to take your business to the next level, writing a book can get you there faster.”


The Retreat


Today, you’ll brainstorm book ideas, vet each one, and hone in on the winning concept. You’ll determine:

  • What exactly will readers gain from your book?
  • What’s the message you want to bring to millions? 
  • What’s the argument for why your book needs to exist? 
  • What makes your book different from similar titles? 
  • And, what’s your why—why do you want to write this book in the first place? 

By the end of Day 1, you’ll have a clear concept for your book and tons of motivation to make it happen.

Today, you’ll begin writing a book proposal that leads to a 6 or multi-6 figure publishing deal. 

Don’t know how to write a proposal? We make the process easier by giving you a template to fill out. The exact template that led to numerous deals for my clients and my own books, too. 

By the end of Day 2, you’ll have a strong first draft of your proposal. Over the next few days, you’ll get feedback and refine it.

What’s happening in the publishing industry right now? What are agents looking for? How can you get a book deal even if you don’t have an enormous platform (yet)? 

Today, you’ll hear from top literary agents and my editor at HarperCollins Leadership. Get the low-down on what makes publishers want to throw money at you. (It’s not just the size of your audience.)


By the end of Day 3, you’ll understand how to secure the book deal of your dreams.

Before offering you a deal, publishers want to see a sample of your book. You need 1 to 3 sample chapters, completed and ready to share. 

Today, you’ll begin writing your book manuscript. Learn writing techniques to get the words flowing, tell better stories, and create a book that readers rave about to their friends.

By the end of Day 4, you’ll have 1 chapter written, or a portion of 1 chapter, depending on how quickly you type. Either way, it’s exciting progress. You’re officially writing a book!

Smart authors begin promoting their books 12 months before it hits the shelves. You should do the same. Today, learn how to market your book like a Million Dollar Author. 

Entrepreneurs: learn how to use your book as a marketing tool to drive more attention to your website and bring thousands of new leads to your business.

By the end of Day 5, you’ll have a marketing plan to hit bestseller lists and ensure that your book is a financial success.

Attend a coworking session (online) to get more writing done, bang out another chapter, put the finishing touches on your proposal, and tie up any loose ends that you didn’t complete during the retreat.

Pitch your book and shoot your shot! 

Present your book idea to a panel of literary agents (online). Agents give feedback on your concept and positioning—and strategic advice to get your book sold. 

One of these agents may offer to represent you, though this is not guaranteed. Whether they say “yes,” “no,” or “maybe, make a few tweaks and circle back to me,” you get priceless suggestions to land your dream book deal faster.

A note from Rachel

Hello, future author! 

Once you have a successful book, it unlocks unbelievable doors.

A hit book brings thousands of new customers to your company. It gets you booked for interviews on NPR, Good Morning America, in The New York Times, and beyond. It leads to paid speaking gigs at double your previous fee. 

My first book took my business to a completely new level. The same is possible for you.

Being published brings you emotional riches, too. Your book is part of your legacy. Your words exist in people’s hearts and minds, on shelves, and in libraries, even after you're gone. 

I know there’s a powerful book inside of you. 

Work with me and let’s unleash your bestseller into the world.

Here’s a checklist so you can make a quick and confident decision.

If you answer “Yes” to all (or most) of the following statements, come to this retreat.

  • I have a book idea or several ideas.
  • I want to write a nonfiction book (not fiction).
  • I want to get a traditional publishing deal (not self-publishing).
  • I want my book to be not just okay but excellent—a book that’s so good, people text their friends (“You need to read this!”) the instant they finish reading. 
  • I want feedback from experts to make my book proposal—and manuscript—the strongest they can be.
  • I’m excited to learn all the different ways I can leverage my book to make money, including my book advance, royalties, additional deals (spin-off product line, etc.) paid speaking gigs, and creating an offer that people buy immediately after reading the book. 
  • I want my book to put $100,000 to $1,000,000 in my pocket over the next few years.
  • I want to use my book as a marketing tool to bring thousands of new leads/clients/customers to my business.
  • I have an audience of at least 10,000 people (social media followers, mailing list subscribers, podcast listeners, etc.) who’d be interested in reading my book once it’s out.
  • Or, if fewer than 10,000 people, I’m willing to put in the work to grow my audience quickly (and I want to learn how to do this!)
  • I want to meet agents, editors, and other decision-makers who are “in the room where it happens” (to quote Hamilton) where publishing deals get made. 
  • I recognize that I probably won’t get my book written and published unless I get a push. I need guidance and accountability to make this happen, and I need distraction-free time to actually write.
  • I have the funds to invest in this retreat. Or if I don’t have the funds right now, I’m excited to create the money I need ASAP (raise my rates, sell a package, nudge a client to pay an unpaid invoice...) and make this happen for myself.
  • I will feel disappointed if I reach the end of my life and never get around to writing my book. This is part of my legacy and I feel a strong sense of purpose to do this.

This retreat is not for you, if:

  • You want to write fiction.
  • You want to self-publish your book.
  • Your book is intended primarily for family and friends, it’s a personal passion project, and making money is not a priority. (Nothing wrong with that! But this retreat is not the ideal setting for you.)
  • Clear concept for your book, including a message and angle that makes your book different from similar titles. 
  • A winning book proposal that’s ready to share with agents and publishers, with all the necessary sections filled out, so you can secure a 6 or multi-6 figure publishing deal.
  • Invaluable feedback from award-winning editors (and other pros) to make your proposal as strong as it can possibly be.
  • Outline for your book manuscript plus a sample chapter or two written, and a plan to finish the rest.
  • Priceless connections with agents, editors, and other publishing industry professionals.
  • Relationships with bestselling authors and future authors, too—new friends who can endorse your book once it’s out, promote it to their audiences, and help you win. 
  • (Possibly) a literary agent who has agreed to represent you, or if not, a plan to get one quickly.
  • Stronger writing and storytelling skills to create a book that readers can’t put down. 
  • A plan to make $100,000 to $1,000,000 from your book through a combination of your book advance + royalties + paid speaking gigs + creating an offer that readers buy immediately after reading your book. 
  • Hope, excitement, and conviction that your book is needed in the world, and that it will change readers’ lives for the better.

We recommend you arrive early on March 2nd to get settled in your accommodations before the retreat begins on the 3rd.

Plan to depart the evening of March 7th, at the earliest.

Breakfast and lunch are included.

When you register before October 31st, your overnight accommodation (5 nights) is included, too, along with airport pick-up and drop-off. Reserve your spot before October 31st to take advantage of this excellent offer!

Please fly into Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

We can’t guarantee that you’ll get a book deal. Nobody can guarantee that. 

However, you’re far more likely to get a deal if…

(a) You have a strong, well-written book proposal that convinces publishers that your book is needed in the world right now, and will be a strong seller.

(b) You have a sample of your book manuscript (around 1-3 chapters) that’s compelling and exciting to read.  

(c) You have personal relationships with literary agents, editors, authors, and other people in the publishing industry who can make introductions and open doors for you.

(d) You have professional guidance (feedback, suggestions, tweaks) on your proposal and manuscript sample to make these materials as strong as they can possibly be. 

(e) You’re educated about the publishing industry, understand what publishers are looking for, and how to position yourself and pitch your book idea successfully. 

(f) You have a tenacious attitude, and you’re willing to be rejected 1, 2, 3, or even 20 times in a row if that’s what it takes to eventually find someone who says, “Yes.” (Many authors fail to get a deal not because their book idea is bad, or their writing is terrible, but simply because they give up too quickly.)

By coming to this retreat, you get all the important ingredients that we just mentioned. Rachel went to a retreat just like this in 2019 and left with crucial insights and relationships that helped her get a book deal. 

This doesn’t mean your publishing deal is “guaranteed.” But, it means you’re significantly increasing the likelihood that you’ll get the book deal of your dreams. 

You can earn $1,000,000 from your book. Do most authors achieve this? No. Is it possible? Yes.

How do you make a millie? 

Through a combination of your book advance (which can be anywhere from $25,000 to $250,000 or more, depending on your credentials and platform) + royalties from every book sold + spin-off deals + paid speaking engagements ($10,000 to $50,000 per keynote and up) + creating an irresistible offer that readers want to buy immediately after they finish your book. However, you need a strategy to pull this off and need to think bigger than most authors do. 

Come to the Million Dollar Author Retreat. Let us show you how to write a book that touches readers deeply and puts plentiful cash in your pocket. 

Yes. In fact, it’s ideal if you haven't written much (or anything) yet. 

Come with a book idea—or several ideas that you’re considering. We show you how to choose your strongest idea, write a successful book proposal, and begin writing a manuscript that readers will love.

Yes, however, please be open to tweaking your book concept, title, outline, and other components based on feedback from the team. Please stay open and receptive. One piece of advice from an agent or editor might send your book in a new (and even stronger) direction.

500,000 to 1,000,000+ new books get published every year. There are thousands of books on every topic imaginable: wellness, parenting, business, money, psychology, relationships, food, design, you name it, somebody has already written about it. 

You will bring something fresh to the conversation that hasn’t been said before. Your story, background, unique method or framework, point of view, or sense of humor—you have something that hasn’t been published before. 

If you’re not sure what’s going to make your book different from similar titles, come to this retreat and let us help you uncover what it is.
