DOES ANY OF THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?
If any of the above (or more) feels familiar to you...
The truth is, when I first started out writing books, I had no idea what I was doing.
I was an award-winning journalist who had been featured in places like Time Magazine, BusinessWeek, and MSNBC.com. But I had never written a book. The opportunity to write one came after I did a very good job creating a series of workbooks for one of my clients.
"Can you write a book for us?" his marketing team asked me.
"Sure," I said. "I can write a book."
Wow, this is going to be great, I thought. Finally, I was going to get to learn more about my client's personal stories, not just the how-to of his program. I imagined his book becoming a bestseller, and maybe even a movie. I studied books on storytelling. And I did a great job interviewing my client, getting the highs and lows of his story. Then I spent four months bringing it all to life with words.
When I handed it in to the marketing team, I was so proud of what I had finished. I imagined this book becoming a huge success, like Robert Kiyosaki's Rich Dad, Poor Dad, or Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich. But the publicist had other ideas.
"It's a good book," he said, his voice flat. "But it's not marketable."
"We'll have to start over."
I was devastated. My thoughts consumed me. Why did I think I could write books? I'm a failure. I've wasted my time. Maybe I should go back to being a journalist. Here I was, an award-winning journalist. But I could not write a book. Like any self-respecting person, I wanted to crawl into bed and never come out again.
That book I couldn't write? I went back and wrote it again. And the second time, it was more than just "marketable." That book became a bestseller and was reprinted in five editions. Seven years after its publication, the author told me the book had formed the anchor of a business division worth $100 million.
I now run a successful media business that has helped to launch more than 400 amazing books and projects into the world. I'm proud to say that my company has helped scores of speakers, entrepreneurs, and thought leaders across the world to become successful authors.
And I did all this without going back to school for an expensive graduate degree in book-writing!
It all started the day that publicist said my book was “not marketable.” When he said that (after the depression and dragging myself out of bed again), I wanted to know: Why?
I set out to find the answer. I buried myself in a mountain of the most
successful books of the day, and I scoured them for clues. Over the next three
months, I figured out the elements of bestselling business books.
I turned those elements into a proven system that has literally produced
hundreds of both high-quality books and successful authors.
can almost hear you saying, “Helen, that’s great for you, but I can’t write a
book—even with a system. I suck at writing. Anyway, I don’t have time to write
Well, I’ve taught this system to countless people who thought they couldn’t even write a good blog post—let alone a book. And remember, I didn’t think I could write a book, either!
Since time immemorial, countless would-be authors have started to write books—only to let the project waste away and die months or years down the road.
The most successful authors and entrepreneurs find a way to hold themselves accountable to their work.
A strong, inspiring, supportive accountability structure is a MUST for you to succeed as an author, so you can take your business and your life to the next level.
We specifically designed this 60-day live course to deliver ONE CLEAR, ACTIONABLE STEP EACH WEEK for you to take on your book. Show up, follow directions, make progress. It's really that simple.
We also integrated PERSONAL ACCOUNTABILITY CALCULATORS AND SCHEDULE MAKERS into each module. Every week, you'll calculate exactly how much time it's going to take YOU, specifically, to complete your action steps. Then you'll create your writing schedule for the week and stick to it, to hit your benchmarks.
Finally, in this special event ONLY, you'll receive LIVE SUPPORT in out bi-weekly coaching calls and bonus workshops. I'll personally talk you through your writing blocks to keep you on track and moving forward.
My team and I have walked authors from all around the world through the same Create My Book System™ I share in the Ultimate Write My Book Formula. And those authors have experienced life-changing results.
We're talking about ordinary speakers and entrepreneurs, just like you, many of whom have never written anything longer than a grade-school essay in their entire lives.
But this system has allowed them to take their wisdom and personal stories, and turn them into professional books that attract credibility, revenue, and raving fans.
I've seen authors as much as double their income, with their book. I've seen experts who were virtually unknown catapult themselves onto the international stage through mainstream media. I've seen speakers boost their speaking engagements threefold, and raise their prices by 15%, 20%, 30% and more.
And what about for established speakers and entrepreneurs already earning great money? Will a book still help me attract even more credibility and revenue?
We all hit upper limits, and income plateaus have a nasty habit of cropping up right when you need to grow the most. When the plateau inevitably hits, writing a book is one of the most powerful tools you can use to shatter that glass ceiling—and quickly break through to the next level of success.
Your book is also one of the FASTEST ways to get to the next level in your business. Better yet, unlike some business strategies that can take months or even years to pay off, when you write your book, you'll start seeing results right away.
Collectively, they're attracted millions of dollars in revenue and made massive upgrades to their businesses—and their lives.
So to be honest, it's not a question of if this program works, (It does, and our authors have proven that—hundred of times over.)
