With so many people writing books, it can become easy to get caught up in the hype to become a published author.
Having a book is incredible:-
- It helps you to clarify processes (coaching, consultancy, training, business)
- It builds your credibility and reputation
- It is a fantastic marketing tool
- It gives you something you can turn into many other things (webinars and online courses)
Which is why it is important to know which is the RIGHT book for you to write, right now. Not just any old book because you have content, the one that will help you to reach your goals and fulfil your vision.
What will this course give you?
This course will guide you through a process to enable you to discover which book you should be writing. You will go step by step through a process which over a period of 10 days will enable you to know which book - for right now.
Why is it important to know which book?
Often aspiring authors start to write books which do not speak from their hearts and they lose motivation, but more than that the book needs to speak to other peoples hearts. Additionally, if you are going to use this book later to turn into an online course, coaching, face to face workshops, retreats and as a marketing tool, then it makes sense for you to think about this hard, before committing your time and resources.
How does this course work?
You will be given a task a day, which will enable you to get connected to your book. Each task will take around an hour or less. You are invited to share and ask questions in our student support group.
It is important to remember that this is a kick-starter course. The course has been designed to enable you to find the right book. Once the course is completed then the real work begins.
What happens at the end of the course?
You will have a completed book proposal and know which book (if any) you want to write.
You can take further courses which will help you to plan, write, edit and publish your book, blog your book and turn your book into a course. Or, you decide that you do not want to write a book at this stage and you use what you have discovered for something else.

I adore working with inspirational, enthusiastic, energetic people with strong messages. People who want to make a difference. I would love to become part of your onward journey, the one that sees you finding your voice, becoming the best version of you and rocking that out to the world.
My passion is helping you to discover the stories inside of you, and help you to share these so that you can leave your legacy, heal, share your inspirational message, have fun, and build a personal brand that really rocks.
I am an expert at getting your story out, and really finding the essence of what you want to say. And then saying it so that it is engaging and makes an impact.
I have a background in professional training, executive coaching and personal branding and I additionally combine these skills to facilitate this journey.
So who am I?
I have been described in many ways - enthusiastic, high energy, inspirational, motivation and fun. I have also been described as beautifully eccentric, which I do indeed take as a compliment. What you get is what you see. What I want for you, is to own who you are and to share your gifts with the world.
In between drinking white tea, experimenting with recipes and walking the the loves of my life - Ferdy dog, Marley Moo & Angel, I can be found writing. And I do a bit of abstract arty stuff with wire and wool.
