The goal of our company is to serve the needs of the doctoral scholar as their  premier publishing solution.

The Refractive Thinker® Press offers a unique business model for the doctoral scholar to:

  • Publish with other scholars in an anthology format to share the expense and share the promotion,
  • Own their copyright,
  • Get their research out of the hallowed halls of academia and into the hands of business owners who can benefit and apply the wisdom of their research findings, and
  • Leverage publishing as a way to create and further their personal brand and reputation as a scholar as (a) faculty, (b) entrepreneur, (c) consultant, and (d) business owner.

In addition to publishing, we offer a 5-week coaching program  (What’s Next?) with Dr. Cheryl to unlock the mysteries of the publishing world to personalize what publishing can do specific to your unique situation.

Schedule your time with Dr. Cheryl.  The first session is a complimentary 30 minute session.  Please book your time in one of two ways:

(a) Calendy  

(b) Send an email [email protected]

We look forward working with you. Come join a #1 International Best Selling and multiple award winning team.
