Today’s Topic: Using A Book to Define Your Purpose - Why “Wait and See” Doesn’t Work

What do I hear all day long every day? “I don’t know my purpose!” Or “I’ve always thought I should write a book.” And my first response about the book is - “Do it!!!” My first response about the life purpose is that you just haven’t found your passion.

I want to use this podcast to break down the break downs on what is being missed and why...

Today’s Topic: Don’t Be A Copy Cat - Writing A Book in An Authentic Voice

On occasion I have a client come through from a referral coaching system and, generally…as a result, some tend to follow (nearly verbatim) the methodology of the coach that referred them. I guess, when you hire a coach, you listen to what they have to say and take their advice if you like the direction they have led you in to date. But, I’ve been watching some clients...

Today’s Topic: How Do I Sell My Self-Published Book?

This is the question every single author has and let me start by telling you that every approach is as different as every result.

We’re gonna jump right in today…If you tuned in to my last podcast, I talked about a client that printed 300 copies of her children’s book and still has many of them sitting in boxes unsold. Well…she is now producing a novel and decided to go to a different Designer, not me, to...

122 - I Just Don’t Want to Spend the Money! (But… I Want A High-Quality Book!)

 

Maybe like you, I tend to have themes going through my business. I guess those themes are based on pop-culture, the Geo-political situation, or cultural norms most of the time. Like, remember that horrible phase of authors trying to out-do one another with the swear word book titles? Good God that was ugly! Yes, it got our attention, but was it good attention?

So, I guess it’s the state of the economy that draws us to today's topic - money! How do you know how much is appropriate when investing in your book project? It’s a question I’m being asked more often these days. Aspiring new authors call me up asking how they can cut corners to cut costs and my answer is generally pretty much the same - do the highest quality book you can afford - always! In this business you get what you pay for. You hire a horrible coach, you get useless coaching. You hire a bad editor, you get lousy editing. You hire a junior or inexperienced designer, you get lack of...

Today’s Topic: Using A Book to Open Up New Business Opportunities

Have you heard that writing a book can earn you a great income? Did you know it really has very little to do with book sales? Did you also know it can help open up new business opportunities?

Even as a Book Coach and someone that has worked in this industry for awhile now, I get the regular marketing ploy sent to me about how a book can earn you $10K immediately at your book launch; how it can skyrocket to best-seller...

Today’s topic: Setting Up Your Book on Amazon - The Good, Bad, and Ugly

When people think of books nowadays the first thing they think about is Amazon. It used to be so different when we had real local bookstores. It really does sadden me because people really gravitate toward Amazon now. Some of you see the complete picture of the pitfalls of Amazon, but most just don’t care. There is a monopoly on all things sold and many businesses are suffering as a result of it’s...

096 - I’m Too Busy To Write A Book!

 

Let me first say that no one is too busy to write a book! It’s a myth. It’s a cop out. It’s a lie!

078 - Greatest Lessons Learned After Becoming An Author

 

Hey Guys! How are you holding up with all the chaos in our world? I’m sorry I missed my podcast last week, but I was on the road traveling. I told you I bought what I am fondly referring to as the “super bus”? Well, the pups and I packed her up and took a drive to visit mom and dad in Michigan. I know it’s crazy to think I haven’t gone south in the winter, but with all the chaos in the world it was just time to go home for nurturing. Sometimes life gets wild and returning to familiar gives you a bit of grounding and comfort. So, here we are being mobile in the super bus! We have a home and an office on wheels! There is something quite freeing about this. With all the chaos we can pick up and go wherever we need. We aren’t bound anywhere. And we left Utah just in time for the arrival of snow! In fact, up on our arrival here in Michigan we had mid 70’d and sun. It was awesome to have a few nice days to get acclimated.

Anyhow, I hope...

015 - Tips For Defining Content (& Your Target Audience) For Your Book & Website

 

I have been really doing my homework lately on SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and all things content for both my website and my books and I wanted to share a few things about what I’ve learned.

I’ll be honest, it’s been a few years since I took the time to play in the online space. I really haven’t done much over the years to promote my business online or via events or social media. I’ve actually just been far too busy. In fact, all my marketing efforts and back-end business tools have always been something I just kinda noodled with in my free time and in between clients. I’ll also admit that I’ve never had a formal business plan, never a real formal sales agreement, and only the minimum content has ever been displayed on my website just to simply have an online presence. I always wondered why I needed to make the effort to do all these things if I had a thriving business. But, sometimes it takes backing up to go more seamlessly...
