Work With Me

“I want to write a book.”

 

How many times have you heard that? How many times have you said it yourself?

 

You know that a book can help you position yourself and increase your profile.  And you finally feel you’re ready to share what you’ve learned with a bigger audience. But the thought of writing a book seems so overwhelming.  Here are some of the objections I’ve heard:

 

  • I have no idea how to start.
  • I’m not far enough along in my career yet.
  • I’m not a writer!
  • It’s too hard to figure out whether I should self-publish or go with a traditional publisher.
  • I don’t have the time.

If you are ready to take your coaching or consulting business to the next level, showing your thought leadership by writing a book is a great choice.  A book allows you to share your philosophy or approach with a much wider audience than you currently have.  It can position you as an expert and fuel the expansion of your business or jump-start your speaking engagements.

 

My superpower is helping successful coaches and consultants organize and package their skills and knowledge for a high-impact book.   I can help you capture your particular kind of genius and turn it into a book you can be proud of.

 

As to those objections:

I have no idea how to start.

I do!  Nothing gets me more energized that creating order out of chaos.  I’ll review the material you already have and map out a plan to get the book done.

 

I’m not far enough along in my career yet.

Wouldn’t a book be a great way to get you farther ahead?  Within the next 12 months, you could have a published book that will get you to that next step in your career.

 

I’m not a writer!

Are you sure?  Is that something you know? Or a story you’ve told yourself?  As a successful entrepreneur, you probably already do quite a bit of writing.  Let’s talk about where your skills really are.

 

It’s too hard to figure out whether I should self-publish or go with a traditional publisher.

The biggest issue for many entrepreneurs is time, so I usually recommend self publishing.  It can take months to find an agent and many more to find a publisher.  Then you write the book and wait 18-24 months before it’s printed and distributed.  With self-publishing, your book can be ready for promotion within the next year.

 

I don’t have time.

Most successful entrepreneurs are already very good at managing their time.  If you really want to make writing your book a priority, you will find the time.

 

Writing a book is a big step, but it’s also one of the most rewarding things you can ever do for yourself and your business.  Let’s talk about what you need and how I can help.
