Inspiration, Know-How, and Confidence to Write Your Book
Would having a book help you attract more business, even a better class of business? You bet it would!
How frustrating is it to know a book can have such a tremendous effect on your business, and still, never get it done?
3 Reasons Why the Aspiring Authors Program™ Will Help You Do It!
1. Explore Many Different Ways to Write.
Most programs on book writing have one method, their way the way they wrote their books. There’s a good chance their way will just frustrate you.
And don’t be fooled by those fast, no-sweat methods: Write a book in a weekend. Really? You need a book that passes the quality test, showcasing you as the authority.
There’s no one best way that works for everyone. That’s why the Aspiring Authors Program™, 6-Session Live Training shows you many different ways, so you choose the best way, the easiest, for you to create yours.
The 6 Live Weekly Group Coaching Calls will motivate you, check in on your progress, and give you answers to your most pesky problems.

This process has been honed over the past 20-plus years of helping many different experts become successful authors.
These steps will give you such clarity that you’ll have no excuse except to write your book.

3. Plan for Success.
Write a book that is compelling and of interest to your target market. You’ll create a business plan that clearly aligns your goals with the book you write.
As part of that plan you’ll learn the best marketing ideas for you. You’ll know before you write it, how and where you will sell your book.

If your goal is to finish and publish your book as economically and quickly as possible, then you will be armed with the resources you will need for self-publishing print, ebooks, and audiobooks.
A Book You’ll Be Proud Of
