Do you KNOW you have a book (or next book) in you . . .
But feel overwhelmed at the idea of writing, publishing, marketing?
Do you feel a stab when you see others’ Instagram posts about their new book while you spend another year un-published?
Do you SEE yourself on the bestseller lists on Amazon and the New Arrivals shelves in Bookstores but can’t seem to find time to write?
Do you KNOW your book can change lives but you worry what friends, family, or your exes will say if you write your story?
Do you KNOW you’re MEANT to write that book but fear, self-doubt, and the belief you’re not SOMETHING enough hold you back?
Imagine if –
You had a proven process to write your book in as little as 3 months, even if you’ve never written before.
You were empowered with the craft tools and mindset strategies to stay confident and motivated throughout the process.
You wrote the book you were meant to write and changed – even saved – lives with your message.
You are now a bestselling author, seen and sought out as an expert in your field, and are leveraging the book to open doors to more opportunities, more clients, more connections MORE JOY & FULFILLMENT than you’ve ever experienced before.
This is what happened for me and our amazing clients when we said YES to The Big Magic.
Our approach is unique in that our team are trained coaches as well as professional editors.
We focus as much on who you are inside and developing the leader you are here to be as on the crafting of the book. This way, when your book launches you are integrated, ready and aligned for the next level.
