Choosing to work with authorpreneurs is my jam.
“You have gone as far as you can go on your own.”
The speaker’s words echoed in my mind as I deliberately wrote them down in my notes. I was prepared for this event to be just another workshop, just another seminar where I would feel inspired and encouraged to be the badass femme entrepreneur I know I am created to be. You know, the events where you leave fired up, but return home, stuff the notes in your files, and go on, business as usual. Yea, nope. That was not this conference. This conference was going to make me own my failures and embrace my possibilities.
And there it was the F word (not that one). Failure. Yes, I had done it. It felt bad, but not as bad as I had nightmarishly imagined. After five years, my book coaching business, by my own standards, was a flopping failure. Yet, here was my SHEro to tell me that she had failed at her business, too, and for more than a decade! Woah! What was I cryin’ about? This SHEro is Nicole Roberts Jones, the bankroll your brilliance expert (coaches need coaches, too).
In less than hour, she convinced me to stop heaving the baby out with the bathwater and really, really do the work to tap into the business that is uniquely me. Without hesitation I signed up for Nicole Roberts Jones‘ self-paced coaching program. I am discovering my own FIERCE factor.
So far, I delightfully discovered that
- Most of my clients are women.
- Most of my clients are entrepreneurs.
- Most of my clients want to write and publish multiple books.
- Most of my clients struggle with self-publishing.
- Most my clients struggle to advance their book idea
There they are: the possibilities of my own fierce.
Before when asked, “what do you do,” I would respond: “My superpower is helping authors get their book ideas out of their heads and onto the page.” And this is still true. Like other budding wonder women, my other incredible powers are surfacing, such as advancing you from author to authorpreneur.
In 2018, I want to guide authors toward stepping into or upping their authorpreneur status by breaking free from seeing their book idea as just a book. It is a book and more. Comment below about your successes and difficulties as an author.
