Turning Your Book Idea Into A Book That Sells
How To Structure, Write & Promote a Book. Self publishing and finding a publisher!
In September 2016 I was approached by the UK's leading non fiction publishers to write a book.
A TV celebrity, author and international coach helped launch my book next door to the Savoy on the 10th floor overlooking London in all it's glory.
TV Celebrity, Strictly Judge and International LA Coach Camilla Sacre Dullerup gave me rave reviews as did many international authors, business leaders and coaches.
That launch led to speaking engagements for WH Smith's, The NHS and Virgin Care to name just a few.
Fight the fear became Pearson's Publishers top Travel retail books and was in airports around the UK for over 2 years.
The book led to so many new clients, speaking gigs and opportunities (most of which I would never have dreamed of!) that I can't list them all.
It's sold in 5 languages and it turns out you can buy my book in a bookstore in South Africa - I know this because there are some big Mandie Holgate fans out there.
My latest book Taking Control Of Your Mind has a foreword written by the CEO of Lifehack, an online publication with 150 million readers around the world, Leon Ho AND a foreword from top Forbes, Inc, Huffington Post writer Gordon Tredgold.
I will teach you how to get amazing results from writing a book too!
In this course you will learn;
- Why it's important to know the aims of your book - what do you want it to do for you, your readers, your career and your goals?
- How to create the time to write a book.
- What to do before you start writing.
- Why your life can sap your motivation to write a book and how to overcome it.
- When to self publish (and when to get help.) Pros and Cons of self publishing.
- How to engage with publishers and what they will expect from you (and it's not just a manuscript!)
- How and why to establish your audiences (and the big mistakes first time writers make.)
- How to promote your book and become a thought leader for your area of expertise/passion.
- How to structure your book.
- How to overcome writers block FAST!
I do not claim to be an expert on publishing, I'm sharing my knowledge from the processes I've been through both through self publishing and working with publishers. I understand why publishers chose me, what they are looking for and how to get spotted because my publishers have told me on more than occasion why they chose me and it's crucial knowledge if you want to work a publishers and see your book in multiple languages around the world!.
I know what the process entails to be successful.
I know what they expect from you.
And I will share all that (and more!) in this course.
I've got this crazy belief that everyone on the planet can achieve anything they truly want to.
The thing is, it's not that crazy because my clients do create amazing things.
I combine 28 years of very successful business management and growth with my coaching skills to be able to bring you courses that are packed with strategies, ideas and techniques I know work because I've seen them work powerfully for customers.
I've helped make more than a few millionaires, and even if your ambition is just to sell part time and create a bit of "fun money" then that's fine too because these courses mould to what you want.
It obviously is not as powerful in a course as it is in a one to one or team coaching session because I'm not there to personally guide you through this but it's a very very good second best. And I've ways to ensure you feel like I'm there by your side through every course.*
I love my life. I help people overcome life long limiting beliefs, fears and obstacles that have seem insurmountable. I've helped people grow businesses when they thought they should quit and "Go and get a job" I've helped coaches find clients and turn their passion into a business and I've helped people reach the pinnacle of their careers. I don't need to know your industry or want the same goals as you because coaching is about helping you to understand and use the science of being you to achieve more.
My clients tend to find every area of their lives improve because my non directional coaching, combined with consultancy and mentoring is exceptionally powerfully. I trust in the process and amazing ideas and eureka moments are created leading to life changing results. It's an amazing process and I aim to share some of it here for you to benefit from and love too.
I'm often asked are you a life coach or a business coach?
A leadership coach or a performance coach?
A communications coach or a career coach?
A accountability coach or a personal coach?
And my answer. All of the above. Whatever is in your life and head is what is important and coaching helps you honour the human you are to get what you want out of your personal and professional life.
