JP Maroney is an American entrepreneur and CEO of Marocom Group, a collection of companies and joint ventures involved in publishing, media, training, consulting and internet commerce.
Self-described as a serial business-builder, JP started his first venture at age 19. Soon after marrying, JP and his wife, Tonya, launched an advertising and marketing agency that created print media and eventually ventured into radio marketing campaigns.
At age 22, JP and Tonya created their first magazine, a travel-oriented publication called Escape Magazine. That led to JP buying a weekly classifieds marketing newspaper called PennyWise.
At age 25, JP lost everything — went bankrupt, and had to scramble to survive — working as a waiter, shoe salesman and pizza deliveryman. But, his fortune changed when he started publishing another magazine, then sold it in 1999.
Then JP launched yet another business as a speaker, author and publisher of training programs. Today, as co-founder and Chairman of Marocom Group, JP controls ventures in publishing, media, training, consulting and internet commerce.
A thorough researcher, writer and best-selling author, JP is the author or co-author of more than 30 books and audio/video learning systems. His articles and columns appear in dozens of print and online publications throughout the US and Internationally. He has also collaborated, organized and published business and self-improvement books with more than 70 other speakers, trainers and consultants.
A frequent keynote and seminar speaker, JP has lived through what most speakers can only “talk” about. He teaches proven principles, ideas and strategies that have been hammered out on the anvil of experience.

I just watched a short video called “What is Bookwise”
Any author would want this.
It’s the quickest way I’ve seen to be in a real business.
Why would you want that? Tax savings, another channel to get the word out about your book, and an incredible network of authors and readers for your book.
And then there’s the global literacy project.
Watch the What is Bookwise video now and leave me a comment with your thoughts.
