How do you know if you should set up a contract with someone?
If any of these 3 elements are involved in your work project, it would be advisable to have a simple contract in place to help - and protect - each person.
I make it easy for you to determine if it is a good idea in this new Biz Quiz video in the free library.
Publishing one book is a big deal. Publishing MULTIPLE books is a game-changer.
As you continue to publish more books, you will most likely start to see your income improve every month. I saw a reliable rise income in my bank account after I had four published titles. Two of my titles were on Kindle Select and two titles were "wide", which means they were available across multiple book sales platforms (Barnes N' Noble, KOBO, Apple, etc.)
An important factor you need to take into consideration for publishing multiple books includes your genre. There is a big difference between fiction and non-fiction titles, for example.
I hope this video helps with your expectations, long-term planning, and staying motivated to keep writing more content.
Two years ago, I felt inspired to create a special book that highlighted powerful stories from amazing women that was BIGGER than any one of us. My intention was to combine impactful stories into a book that would benefit even MORE people by donating all book royalties to a non-profit.
24 awesome women came together to realize this intention. Women for Women International was our non-profit of choice.
In 2017, we released our book, Modern Heroine Soul Stories, out into the world and garnered great reviews. We were deemed a "Hot New Release" on Amazon and word of mouth helped us connect with more readers.
And then just this week, we had an exciting achievement.
Our book became an International Bestseller in Spiritual Healing!
Modern Heroine Soul Stories is at the top of the charts in Canada and Australia right now, and at an exciting #2 in the UK - WOW!
The excitement expands even more through the increase in our donation amounts to Women for Women International....
Save yourself from unnecessary stress or setbacks by listening to the tips I have for you in this podcast!
I have learned many things the hard way, and sometimes on the longer path, so I hope this show gives you valuable information you can use for your author career and entrepreneurial spirit.
I cover 7 areas in this episode, including:
- Time commitments
- Investing money
- Figuring it out all by yourself
- Remaining flexible
- The importance of experimentation
The mental game of writing can be easier when you are focused and in flow - but we experience those periods of trying to force it, too.
I have guidance to offer you that has worked for me after completing 12 books. Hopefully it assists in changing around how you approach the pressure of "forced writing" so you can transition to "focused writing" that has flow.
Inspiring, real world stories every week about clients, readers, business and books to support building your dream career. We'll discuss Business and Books topics to help you grow as an entrepreneur, author, solopreneur, healer, or anyone offering their gifts to the world. With over 25 years of sales, marketing and business experience, Molly shares with you realistic insights, tips, training, and guidance to ensure your vision grows and expands with practical application and understanding.
Sometimes you have to break out of the inner struggle and open up to an unconventional creative process that works perfectly for you.
I struggled with "how to be a writer" for years, until I threw out all conventional advice that did not feel right or fit how I wanted to create.
Can you relate to feeling that way?
In this new video, I'm sharing with you what has worked for my (productive) writing style, plus pulling back the curtain on how I have written many books in a rather short amount of time.
I hope this opens you up to more possibilities in your own creative process!
Allow other people's success to inspire you to see what is possible these days. Just because it happened to them does not mean it won't happen to you.
We have more ways to succeed these days than ever before in human history - that's pretty incredible, right?
The Comparison Game can take you down the wrong tracks if you're not aware of what's going on. Need help moving through that?
More about this very topic on this week's podcast, Why Is Everyone Else Doing Better Than Me?
Validation may be an obvious need at times, but why would you be vulnerable in your business? Because times are changing, people have different expectations (often unconscious), and there are key reasons for allowing people to see - and feel - the real you.
We'll discuss how validation and vulnerability are linked together and can be unconscious drivers of what you're doing. You can be vulnerable in the wrong ways, unfortunately, so listen as I guide you with easy tips for harnessing your heart in your professional endeavors.
The results can be extraordinary and you'll feel new levels of motivation for your work in the world.
What type of content creator are you?
We are all surrounded by way too much information these days, for better or for worse, and we can lose track of where "ideas" come from. Did it come from you or someone else? Was it an idea you saw 'out there' or did you get inspiration from it within?
The answer is probably somewhere in the middle.
But to stay 'above board', ensure you are creating content from your own experience and not simply duplicating what someone else has already done.
We need more genuine voices contributing to the ongoing conversations. People pick up on what is true and real, and will eventually see through false copies or empty words.
Ultimately, we need your unique insights to help move collective knowledge forward. When we each contribute what we've learned, we all continue to grow exponentially.
Plus, I'm new on Instagram! Come over and connect with me right here:
With so much in front of us these days, it helps to know we are not alone in the challenges, struggles, and questions we face as authors and entrepreneurs.
