She sat in the back of the room, watching the event leader impact the hearts and lives of everyone present and feeling restless.
After hundreds of hours in rooms like these, reading inspiring books, and listening to powerful messengers, she had realized something…
Her own heart longed to do the same thing – to help others who had faced the same challenges she had faced, but to do it with better information, the knowing that they aren’t alone, and some of the tools, skills, and strategies that had made her own journey easier.
But every time I sit down to work on the book, the presentation, or the workshop curriculum I’ve been inspired (and told, by my coaches and colleagues, I need) to create, it just doesn’t happen the way I imagine it should. The ideas, stories, and exercises just don’t flow together the way I want them to.
As she listened to the event leader offer an opportunity to make her dream a reality, she felt a familiar mixture of hope and frustration.
I’ve completed so many programs, but I’m still stuck.
I still feel invisible in every room.
I still don’t know how to tell people exactly what I do and where I’m going with my message…
or when my book will be done!
She looked at the offer and it hit her, I can’t do this alone, but I need someone to hold my hand through this process, or it isn’t going to happen.
And I would love to have it done one year from now…
you’ve been inspired to write a book or speak on a topic
people have encouraged you to tell your story
you know you have something of value to give to the world –
a message that is your destiny to learn, to become, and to share
it’s on your list, but it’s not getting done
you’ve started jotting ideas, but you keep getting stuck
now, when you think about your message, you say:
“I don’t have the time.”
“I don’t know where to start.”
“I’m not a writer or speaker – my message is flat.”
“I don’t know which stories to tell.”
“I started, but it got muddled.”
You’re not alone.
In fact, you’re like most new Messengers
(authors, speakers, coaches, healers, and CEOs)
The hardest part of…
writing a powerful book,
creating a memorable signature presentation,
or developing transformational curriculum
…is getting started.
But What If It Doesn’t Have to Be That Hard?
What If You Could Write, Publish, and Launch It in One Year?
Clarify Your Core Message
When you get laser-focused on the message under all of those other lessons you want to share,
and exactly who that message is meant to help, you’ll be clearer and relieved.
Connect It to Your Purpose + Story
When you ‘connect the dots backwards’ and see the Divine Hand in your story, message, and desire to help others,
you’ll be more excited and committed than you thought possible.
Decipher Your Divinely–Coded Branding + Framework
When your Divine Brand emerges, and you find the way to communicate your message that is completely in alignment with you, your personality, and your style, the rest of it – the stories, the lessons, the tools – will all fall into place.
Identify Likely Obstacles (Your Real Work)
When you see the stories of your life that need to be rewritten and healed and learn new ways to rewrite them,
you will hold the keys to your personal transformation and ongoing breakthroughs to
next levels in your writing, your speaking, and your life.
Let It Unfold + Develop in a Safe Community
When you move through this process in a safe, sacred environment, the feedback you get from others will not only help you develop and expand your ideas, but anchor you more deeply into the importance of
your message, story, and gift for the world.

Complete a Manuscript Edit: Content Editing, Copyediting, Proofreading
First and foremost, especially if you have not written the book with our coaching and support, I will make sure your Content is True to your Intention. Recommendations will be made, and then I will support you in making them, showing you exactly how to make the changes with easy models to follow. Once the Content is powerful,
I’ll have our editors make sure the style, grammar, punctuation are consistent and polished.
Design + Develop the Book Cover
Since this is the first thing the reader will see, the colors, images, and title/subtitle have to ‘grab’ their attention, but it also has to resonate with you and your message. I have a process that makes book cover development easy, and our incredibly intuitive and artistic designer works quickly, so we can get the book cover done and ready
for the marketing campaign. To see previous book covers we’ve worked on, CLICK HERE.
Write the Back Cover / Book Description / Marketing Copy
If the cover is impossible to ignore, the reader will usually flip the book over to read the description on the back cover before opening it up. The description/marketing copy has to be engaging and concise.
For samples of my work, see the Amazon Book Descriptions of the books we’ve produced.
Write Additional Pages: Front Matter + Invitation
Again, this is about not only creating an experience for the reader and honoring those who have helped you along the journey; it’s about transitioning the reader into a ‘follower’ or ‘client’ or ‘guest,’ giving them a way to stay connected to and
to keep learning from you if that’s what their heart is telling them to do.
Layout + Set Up for Purchase/Distribution
We will discuss which small press will best suit your needs, and then I will support you through the experience of working with that press to turn your manuscript into a paperback and ebook. This includes interior design and layout.
Because our books typically facilitate emotional experiences, it’s important that we create a congruent visual experience. We have to use some ‘visual tricks,’ so that they don’t feel like the material is
too much or too dense to work through. We want it to look and feel like easy, breezy reading and put them
in the right frame of mind and heart to absorb everything they can from the experience.
(May Extend Timeline Beyond 12 Months)
Uncover the Possibilities + Develop Your First Business Plan
We will develop your basic revenue model, clarify your direction for your launch, create a plan, and lay a solid foundation for your message-based business. Our goal is to help you create the business in such a way that it will not compromise your message, your ethics, or your personal life and goals.
Develop Your Brand Identity
We’ll work with you to develop your brand identity – colors, images, messaging – online and offline.
This means that we will develop your logo, business cards, letterhead design,
and your website and one social media platform.
Implement Your First Business Plan – Launch ONE Campaign / Event
I will support you in developing the strategy, the systems, and the policies you need to move your business forward and grow it quickly, and I will support you with everything related to your copywriting
(sales pages, emails, etc.), curriculum, and coaching support.
Identify Your First Online Strategy + 6 Months of Implementation
I’ve also partnered with a Social Media Expert to help you reach your goals. They will provide the road map, set up one social media platform, and implement the strategy for 6 months of your campaign, including a strategic starter online ad campaign. All of the offline strategy will
be created together, but up to you to implement.
Final Wing Training Before Launch – LIVE Support
Once the curriculum is developed and the campaign is rolling, it will be time for you to practice your delivery. I will invite you to practice (on us and our community) facilitating your curriculum, coaching, and inviting people to take the next step. This is an opportunity to get real-time, laser coaching on your speaking, facilitating, and coaching before you go out into the world and do it. I’ll help you identify areas for quick and easy improvement and give you on-the-spot
coaching and opportunities to adjust and practice more powerful approaches.
In 12 months (or less), you could move
from Inspiration to Impact.
Your dream to change the world + your life
could manifest in only 1 year (or less).
Plus you’ll have the Solid Foundation
for the future of your Message + Your Life
with the book,
and even the curriculum
and revenue model if that’s your heart’s desire.
But most importantly,
you’ll have Rewritten the Stories
before they can sabotage your dream.
