About Us

An author-centric hybrid book publisher

Lifestyle Entrepreneurs Press is the gold standard for independent book publishing. Founded in 2014 on the ideal of serving entrepreneurial authors throughout their career, with attention given to each stage of the book publishing process – Writing, editing, design, marketing strategy, online brand presence, and of course international distribution wherever books are sold.

Founded by Jesse Krieger, following his experiences publishing and promoting Lifestyle Entrepreneur to be an international best-selling book, and seeing the publishing industry from the inside out.

Lifestyle Entrepreneurs Press has evolved over the years to become an internationally distributed publishing house, with authors in over a dozen countries and an international team that reflects the tastes and preferences of readers around the world.

We believe that book publishing is a process, one that unfolds over months and years, and our entire orientation as a company is to build a foundation of knowledge, wisdom and experience, accessible to all people in all places.

Lifestyle Entrepreneurs Press publishes at the intersection of truth and beauty, creating enjoyable ways for readers to consume and engage with your best ideas.
