Nanjar was very responsive during the design contest creating several different versions within a couple of hours of each request. He nailed my book cover and has also continued to work with me after the contest was finalized. He promises to continue with a few additional edits once I have my book description and blurbs finalized. Very good work!
Praveen was amazing, as always. I am a repeat customer and have never been disappointed. Prompt, thorough, and always high quality.
Fabulous! Thank you so much for your swift response! I appreciate your redesign help!
Loved this a lot! You have such a creative, clean taste! Super excited to have this as my new podcast cover :)

Harnessing Your Wealth A Guide to Millionaire Status
Billy Peterson has been in the financial services industry since 1996 after a rewarding career as a horse racing jockey. In 1995, the year before he retired, he led all jockeys nationally in Quarter Horse earnings. He worked for several multi-national investment firms before opening his own financial planning firm in 2009- Peterson Wealth Services Inc.
Billy received his BA from the University of Texas at El Paso in 1995 and later obtained both the CFP and CDFA designations. He has appeared in The Wall Street Journal online, KUTV-4 News, and his articles have been published several national and local magazines. During his racing career he was frequently featured on ESPN, TNT, TVG and other nation-wide networks and radio shows.
His biggest accomplishments are being the proud father of five wonderful children and being married to the love of his life. He resides in Morgan, Utah where he raises quarter horses, coaches the high school softball team and teaches his children the value of hard work and financial freedom.
This is my first book. I wrote this to help people understand the importance of making smart financial decisions, especially early in life. I lay out the process of how to get started investing, what makes sense and areas to avoid. I use a lot of personal stories as a way to illustrate various concepts. Most of the stories involve my experiences as a professional horse racing jockey and the spillover to the investing/financial world. I want to show people that its not overly difficult to become a millionaire. It just takes some patience and some discipline.
I would hope that teenagers and young adults would find the information in this book extremely valuable. I would like to see it utilized in financial literacy classes all over the country. It will also be valuable to older generations as much of the material pertains to retirement, tax minimization, government programs and debt.

What colors do you want to see in your design?
I was a professional jockey so I'm thinking of incorporating either a picture of me riding in a race or some other image. I also want it to be calming and not overly busy. I am curious of what a retro image will look like versus a modern image.
The message should convey that investing is pretty easy but at the same time- action must be taken to get started-the sooner the better. My book is filled with personal stories so its almost like a part memoir with the main message tied to obtaining financial freedom. The files that I attached below are my company logo. They do not need to be used for the design. I simply attached to show what I use for my company. I do not want the name Peterson Wealth Services in the design.
What to avoid
Too busy or too bright . I don't want it to look salesy or gimmicky.
