Maybe this is a topic you know well: Have you ever struggled with sharing your work and books in the world?
Yep - it's normal to feel that way, especially if it's a new venture or you're just figuring out the style that works for you. And even if you have been doing this for awhile, you may still hate promoting your business because it's just not your thing.
I have guidance for you in this show to approach promotion in a different way that will hopefully alleviate some anxiety and change your feelings about putting yourself out there more.
New show for awake and conscious entrepreneurs, authors, healers, experts, and teachers! 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.
Many of us as healers, spiritual guides, and experts are doing business in new ways as part of the global shift. As we follow our dreams and create our unique path as we go, often times being financially supported becomes up as one of the main priorities on our minds. Will the right clients show up? How do I promote my work without giving it all away? What do I have to do to receive financial abundance?
Your work is bigger than just you, so I have created an online course to support the energy of abundance as you grow your business and help more people. Mastering Abundance In Your Spiritual Business is for anyone who wants to establish their offerings with confidence and get results - is that you?
We'll look at the spiritual importance we give money; why your business is the perfect opportunity to look at karmic patterns and old programming; the significance around determining your rates and pricing; and important considerations to be...
Whether you are looking for clients or readers, you need to know about the sales process that drives people to say YES to you.
We'll talk about the 3 types of leads that you will encounter as you share your business + books with a growing audience.
Plus, I'll share how to be aware of when others are trying to sell to you so you can determine - objectively - what an effective sales strategy experience is (hello, someone relatable and honest) and what is not (yikes, those dang solicitors in the mall!).

What trends are emerging for authors and entrepreneurs in 2018?
Let's take a look at what is most likely to increase in popularity, decrease in effectiveness, and bring in more results from your target market.
1. More video and live videos for content and connections
2. Dedicated vs. Hobbyist entrepreneurs and authors
3. More defined target markets required
4. Longer sales process needed
5. Diversifying content across more platforms, media, and distribution channels
6. New trends in email marketing
7. Business with a conscious connection
8. Offline connections gain priority
In the long-run, you will most likely want three formats for your books: ebooks, paperbacks, and audiobooks.
Perhaps you already know that and have it on your never-ending To-Do list. Some authors prefer hardback versions, too.
In this video, I share with you the reasons WHY each of these 3 formats matter for your author platform, revenue channels, and professional expansion.
I hope this helps you prioritize and stay focused on what you are creating for the long-term.
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....
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?
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:
Are you thinking, "fail-fast?! No thank you - I'll pass on that!!"
Of course -- we all want to avoid failing in business or with our books.
But it is important to know what "fail-fast" means - and why is it so very-very important right now.
In this new podcast show, I'll explain the "fail-fast" concept, why it works FOR you, and how to approach your offerings with new expectations so you can create better results. Starting listening right here.
