The Smart Answer Is NOW!
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 Author Roadmap Will Help You Do It!
1. Explore Many Different Ways to Write.
You’ll find that most of the programs on book writing have one method they prescribe. Most of these programs are by people who have had success writing their books their way. There’s a good chance their way will just frustrate you.
And don’t be fooled by these fast, no-sweat methods: Write a book in a weekend. Really? Do you think you’ll write a book that strategically presents your knowledge and skills in a weekend? Or even eight weeks?
There’s no ONE best way that works for everyone. That’s why the Aspiring Author Roadmap 5-Session, Live Webinar shows you many different ways to create a book, easier ways, and even some that don’t require writing, to help you choose the best way for you to create yours.
Then 5 weeks of Small Group Coaching will motivate you to sustain your progress and give you solutions to your most pesky problems.
2. Process Plus Implementation.
This Aspiring Author Roadmap arms you with the step-by-step help you need to write your book, your way.
The program is based on the same process honed over the past twenty years of coaching clients to become successful authors and write the book that propels their business to the next level.
These are the steps that will help you to know your passion, purpose, and process with such clarity that you’ll have no excuse except to write your book.
The Resource Manual and Workbook immediately guides you through putting into practice everything you learn.
As a leading consultant in business book authorship with a track record of success, I know you can write a great book!
3. Plan for Success.
Too many times authors think they’ve written a bestseller only to discover how hard it is to sell their book. That’s why 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 know before you write it, how and where you will sell your book.
Think it’s impossible for first-time authors to secure a contract with a traditional publisher? If that is your goal, then this program will show you how to plan your publishing strategy.
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
Imagine handing your book to your prospects to showcase your expertise, to get more speaking engagements, or to sell as a product that reinforces your training.
How much more confident would you feel? How will you be compared to your competitors and viewed differently (hint: as the authority)?
You can do it! All you need is the incentive, the knowledge, and a clear vision that will make it easier, doable. And you get all of that in these 10 weeks of the info-packed Aspiring Author Roadmap.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to make your book happen and change your status from wanna be to professionally published author.
