It's because of the buts. Isn't it?
You're ready to write with intention, (Yay you!)...
PUMPED about putting your story out in the world, (Hell yes!)...
BUSTING to share your unique, powerful message, (It's amazing!)...
AMPED to launch your 7-figure coaching empire with this incredible concept of yours, (You're one step away)...
FEELING c sure you'll inspire a generation of folks to deepen their experience, (Yes, you will)...
You've declared to the universe that...
YOU. ARE. WRITING. A. BOOK.
(you even told a couple of peeps)
Enter, the But Family, the uninvited houseguests of the writing life whose voices sounds suspiciously like your own.
"BUT ... I couldn't get past the first page."
"BUT ... it's waaaayyy harder to write every day, than I expected."
"BUT ... I don't know how to make this idea and some blog posts into a book."
"But ... I'm going to piss some people off if I tell the truth."
"But ... I'm getting nowhere and I have 80,000 words to write by October."
Wherever you are right now,
I can help you get where you need to be.
This isn't a course, and I don't do packages that promise you'll have a book in some amount of time. If you are looking for a checklist, a template or a guarantee, I'm not your coach.
I won't be supporting your self-diagnosed writer's block. It isn't a thing. I won't let you get stuck. I will find a way to work with or around your time limitations, support your work style, strengthen your content and coach you through your self-imposed limitations.
Oh, and I won't let you quit —because people need to hear your story.
What you bring with you ...
- your somewhat conceived book idea,
- a clear idea of what you plan to include,
- the book's intended purpose for you,
- your life, your business, and the goal.
- (we'll work out the rest together.)
This goal is yours, and yours alone. Maybe you've always wanted to be a writer, and this book has been simmering on a back burner for a decade. Fantastic! Let's write it! Your goal might be to self-publish the book to launch a business. You might be a writer who wants an agent who can get you a Big Five publishing deal. Let's get you there!
Oh, and I won't let you quit —because that's (in part) what you're hiring me for.
How does coaching work?
Coaching with me is all bespoke, customized to you, your writing process, or your project's needs. If you have a book deal and need 60,000 perfectly polished words in three months, you'll need more support from me than a writer who is giving herself a year to draft a memoir before considering how to publish it.
I fill my docket with the juiciest work I have right now. Because I'm a coach, co-author, collaborator, and publishing project manager, I fill my schedule as the choice projects come. If I can't block the time to help you the way you need it, I won't say yes. That's the way I work.
I base my fees on how much of my time you want (weekly one hour checkins, bi-weekly half day sessions, or daily project management will all have different time and costs involved.
Hang on a sec'...
Need more details on how we can work together?
Clients work on a monthly retainer with me, (none of that hourly logging or nickel and diming.) I ask for a minimum three month commitment to hold your spot. Included with every call (phone, audio, video) I review some pages of your writing.
