Most people would agree that there is power in words. Words can sway the masses, produce emotion, tell a story, provide information—the possibilities are endless. It is impossible to deny how powerful and impactful words can be.
However, whether or not people choose to use words to shape their lives is up to them. One woman has decided to use words to change the world and has made it her mission to ignite a billion lives with a billion words. Bestselling author and female philanthropist JB Owen founded the empowerment-driven publishing company Ignite Publishing to inspire people of all walks of life to share their impactful stories with the world. Ignite Publishing works with aspiring authors to guide them in the process of telling stories of powerful, personal moments designed to speak to the heart of every person, regardless of race, age, religion, or gender. By providing an uplifting environment, Owen has produced a space for breaking down internal barriers for authors to tell their stories in a way that is compelling and healing. Owen has published over 700 authors throughout her career, turning them into bestsellers in thirteen different countries around the world.
Entering publishing industry
When JB Owen entered the publishing industry, her vision was to impact the world in a positive way with the power of words. “I often tell new writers, the start is the hardest part; after that, it is all heart. Every person has a unique story to tell, and by telling our stories, we are able to impact the world around us. Maybe our story is touching to someone who can relate to our situation, or maybe they just felt emotionally moved by it. Either way, sharing our personal stories are important, and my mission in life is to motivate people to tell their stories in a way that is empowering and captivating,” said Owen, founder of Ignite Publishing. “Our focus is to Ignite a billion lives with a billion words—via print, video, TV, podcasts, social media, online training, workshops, live events, and our business-oriented Ignite magazine. We’ve seen the power behind Igniting others and how our devotion is making a difference across the globe. With authors in over 26 countries, ages 12 to 70, we feel the power of positive messaging and heartfelt connections is the foundation of real success.”
Launching the impact
Owen launched Ignite Publishing in February of 2018. Since then, the company’s published books have reached #1 in 197 categories to date. Owen continues to use Ignite Publishing to make her vision of igniting a billion lives a reality.
The powerful impact that words can have is undeniable, and Ignite Publishing has honed in on this idea to inspire people to share their personal stories with the world. The empowerment of authors will always be the company’s main focus, as JB Owen has always made a point to uplift and provide a safe space for authors as they tell their stories.
