About EMI

The Birth of EMI

The Original EMI Team, March 2015

Turning Tragedy into Truimph

After Cameka “Ruth” Taylor experienced a devastating relational crisis in 2014, she felt commissioned by God to go the extra mile with the “extra time” given to her. This was the birth of Extra MILE Innovators. In January 2015, Ruth registered EMI as a personal development and book publishing business in Jamaica. Her vision was to write and speak to transform lives, one heart at a time, in Jamaica and around the world, using the tools that transformed her life.

Within a year after her relational crisis (a broken engagement), in March 2015, Ruth published her memoir, “Heartache Queen Unshackled” and has since then published four other books for herself. Two of these books became Amazon bestsellers (When Trees Talk and Design to Win Road Map).

As a Christ Follower, Ruth’s mission in life is to exalt God and empower people to win in this life and the next.

In July 2018, Ruth embraced full-time entrepreneurship and stepped out in faith to become an Authorpreneur. Additionally, after being pressed by friends she had been helping for free to publish their books, Ruth began offering publishing services to Indie Authors as a viable business.

After making several publishing mistakes, Ruth forged a partnership with an overseas publishing company (N.D. Author Services) to publish her own books on a budget. She now leverages this partnership to help struggling Indie authors with a dream, to publish affordably and teaches them how to become author–entrepreneurs (authorpreneurs).

Uptown Quality at Downtown Prices

Have you ever bought a clothing item Uptown, and then see a friend or family member in the same item, only to find out you paid twice as much because they bought theirs Downtown? Those who live in Jamaica understand this very well. There is an old business district in Kingston, Jamaica known as Downtown where you can get a variety of quality products at affordable prices. If you were to buy these products anywhere else, you are likely to pay at least two to three times more. Well, that’s the experience we are trying to create in EMI in publishing books for Indie authors, and by teaching them Authorpreneur Secrets.  In this way, they will end up with professional quality books at affordable prices.

EMI believes that people should live purposeful, fulfilling and effective lives for the glory of God and the good of humanity.
