About Us

At Made for Success Publishing, we have been helping authors realize their dreams for over 15 years. Though the author creates the book, the book creates the legacy.

If you’ve ever had been struck by inspiration to write a book, you know how difficult it can be to know how to start.

Far too often, your wisdom, ideas, and experiences go undocumented due to a simple breakdown in transmuting them into a flowing narrative.

That’s where Made for Success Publishing can help.

Through our rich experiences of partnering with authors, we have cultivated a proven process to develop your book within 90 days. This 90 day period is like a raw iron forge, combining the right amount of heat, a bit of pressure, and every last ounce of your inspiration to create something truly remarkable.

We believe in walking every step of the way with you, from writing the very first words of your book, to the first book signing event at the local store.

Beyond that, we believe in visibility and clarity of our process, which is why all of your project details are housed in our visual project management tool to keep you up to speed on our strategy and all next steps.

Ambitious authors need ambitious publishers. That’s why we’ve engineered multiple different programs for our authors to choose from.

Meet Our Team

Bryan Heathman is a sought after speaker, author, and consultant. As a full-service book publisher,  Made For Success Publishing has given the world unique works by some of the top celebrities in the Personal Development space, including Zig Ziglar, Brian Tracy, Mark Victor Hansen, Jack Canfield, Loral Langemeier, and T. Harv Ecker. His consulting expertise comes from running hundreds of successful online promotional campaigns, starting with his brainchild iPromotions during the dot.com boom. Bryan’s techniques were forged by working with world-class marketing departments such as Proctor & Gamble, AT&T, Travelocity and Nissan.

A veracious reader herself, DeeDee Heathman's love of books easily transitioned well to the publishing industry. Having taught writing for 7 years to K-High School using the Excellence in Writing method, DeeDee is able to spot a “Winner” manuscript when she sees one. Her keen eye for both the creative and technical side of writing makes her an exceptional executive editor who guides her team with a passion for each book as if it were the only one she is working on! Hailing from California she enjoys anything that can be done in the sun (except running…and biking, both of which can be done in the rain but not very enjoyably), is an avid tennis player, skier and dog lover. She now resides in Seattle, WA, Made for Success Publishing HQ.

Katie is a self-proclaimed “swirly” person (aka creative) with a love for reading, writing, and encouraging people. Though she might be vertically challenged and innocent looking, she’s fierce–from the age of six to twenty, she raced motocross nationally and can probably beat you in a pull-up contest. When she’s not editing or helping our authors, you can find her singing in the car, laughing obnoxiously loud, or leading worship.

Being a left-brained, athletic, methodical, hyper-active kid at heart, Tyler does not fall into normal social constructs but seems to create new categories daily. While graduating with honors from CSUN, Tyler acted in many short films all around the LA area. Having wrote, directed, and produced 3 short films of his own, he can certainly be classified as a screen junky. He also achieved his black belt in karate hapkido at the age of 18. When Tyler is not pondering the best way to increase audiobook revenue streams or how to disrupt the publishing world, he can be found on the slopes of Stevens Pass or at the park in a pick-up game of ultimate frisbee.

Desiree is a digital nomad, always making opportunity out of where life takes her. She has a passion for wood burning, illustration, and spending as much time outdoors adventuring with her family as she can. Although she is from the Last Frontier (Alaska), she has spent the last five years traveling abroad, living in both Ireland and Canada. She recently made a welcome return to the states where she is currently embracing the cowboy lifestyle in Texas (y’all!), and enjoys working as a Executive Assistant and Graphic Designer for Made For Success Publishing.
