Author Feature: Nancy Nelson – Helping Women Through Crisis and Grief

Tags : 

Crisis. We don’t know why or how it will happen, but if you’ve lived long enough, it’s not a matter of if it will happen to you, but when. Now, we don’t mean to be the bearer of bad news or come across as negative. If anything, we believe that people can only survive with hope and help. But many of us here are also old enough to know that life isn’t always a fairytale and crises do happen to everyday people. Webster defines a crisis as: “an unstable or crucial time or state of affairs in which a decisive change is impending-especially one with the distinct possibility of a highly undesirable outcome.” (Source)

Sometimes you can bring a crisis on yourself by a series of bad choices, and other times, you’re simply thrown into one.

Meet Nancy Nelson, Certified IPEC Professional Coach Specializing in Resiliency, Transition, and Grief

It’s easy to look at Nancy’s certifications and think: “Great, another academically certified expert. They can’t relate to me, they don’t know what I’ve gone through.” We hear you and completely understand that sentiment-many of us at The Book Professor have it too. But Nancy is different than just your average certified professional coach. She’s lived what she teaches and has come out on the other side still standing to share her own journey through crisis and grief.

Her Story

Nancy’s story isn’t pretty. Trapped in an unhappy marriage, she asked her husband for a divorce. A few days later, he disappeared. His phone, his wallet, and his money were still in the house, but Bob was gone. The police conducted an extensive search, but he was nowhere to be found. Even the cadaver dogs couldn’t find a scent. Under the cloud of suspicion, Nancy did her best to hold things together for herself and her kids. But where was Bob? Her book, Lessons From the Ledge, is a harrowing tale of living through Bob’s disappearance and the aftermath of what was eventually discovered.

Nancy lives in the northwest suburbs of Chicago with her 19-year-old son, Sam. Frequent visits from her 24-year-old daughter, Jillian, and the daily antics of Winnie the Rescued Wondermutt and Boltie Bolterson, the mighty chihuahua, keep her occupied and usually laughing. Widowed in 2010, she completed her BA in Applied Behavioral Science in 2013, and her certification in Life Coaching from IPEC in 2015. Normalizing grief and understanding the aftermath of suicide is her passion, as well as helping people grab their individual greatness.

Lessons from the Ledge was written to guide women in crisis to dig into their resilience, to push past the pitfalls, and to reframe the pain, so they can thrive instead of merely survive. The book will be available in July 2017.  Mark your calendars. This book is for EVERY woman!

“If even one person finds truth in what I write and feels less alone, all the struggle is worth it.”

-Nancy Nelson

Client Profile: Craig Hughes – Teaching You How to Grow Your Small Business

Tags : 

If you’re an entrepreneur looking to grow your small business, you’ll definitely want to read this book written by the owner of a taxicab company. We know what you’re thinking: Why would the owner of a cab company ever write a book, and what could I possibly learn from reading it? This man started out with a small taxi company and battled his way up to building a multi-million dollar business.

Meet Craig Hughes, Founder and Chairman of Total Transit, Inc., in the Phoenix, AZ area.

grow your small business

Craig knew nothing about the taxi business when he purchased an unsexy, dilapidated cab company in 1984. Since that time, he has grown that business to be the busiest taxi dispatch in the United States. Total Transit does $140 million in business each year and has enjoyed a 35% growth rate over the past 7 years. That is success by any standards!

Learn how to grow your small business

When Craig first came to us, he had an idea for a book that would help entrepreneurs get over the hurdles of moving from the start-up stage to the expansion phase. The purpose of Craig’s book is to inspire small business owners who are cash strapped, spread too thin, and feel trapped by their business to take action that moves them from their current all­-consuming, hands-­on approach to the freedom of a self-­sustaining enterprise. His book aims to teach you how to grow your small business so that you can enjoy true success, and not just wear the title of “small business owner.”

 

 

Craig understands the frustrations that small business owners face. There comes a time when they become the biggest obstacle to their company’s growth. Everything comes to a halt until they can solve the problem, call the customer, send the invoice, perform the service, etc. They feel trapped and want the business to start working for them, rather than continue working for the business.

His book, Get Out Of The Way: How To Grow Your Small Business From An All-Consuming, Hands­-On Approach To A Self­-Sustaining Enterprise, shows business owners and entrepreneurs a way to grow their business while gaining more freedom from its day-to-day demands. The book will be available in August 2017. Mark your calendars. You won’t want to miss this one!

How to Write a Nonfiction Book When It Hurts

Tags : 

This year, our focus is to find 117 Solutions to our most difficult problems, an effort we call 117 Solutions in 2017. I’m encouraged by the response we’ve had, but I also feel humbled when I’m asked how to write an inspirational nonfiction book when it hurts. Not all stories are pretty, especially those about child abuse.

Sean Carney is one of my heroes. He’s a big, burly man, tough in a kind-hearted way, and he has the kind of laugh that would get you in trouble at church. Deeply generous, Sean lives large, and he shares his blessings inspirational nonfictionwith everyone around him. He should have died when he was 20.

Inspirational Nonfiction; A Painful Story

Sean wasn’t sick, but he grew up in a sick environment that was punctuated by regular incidents of the worst kind of child abuse, inflicted on him by his uncle. The son of a violent father and a depressed-to-the-point-of-being-disabled mother, he had to take the family reins when he was just twelve years old, getting his brothers up for school and cooking their dinner at night. It’s no wonder he became angry and violent, and at 13 he started using drugs: pot, PCP, crystal meth, alcohol, cocaine, and heroin. At 17 he became a father. By the time he was twenty, he was on the needle. Even though he drank and drugged, he could not escape the PTSD from the sexual abuse.

Sometimes you can’t tell when children are in trouble. Sean’s family looked like the richest people in town. He was an All-Star in Little League and hockey, he played army, went to the beach and played in the woods, and he was even a track star. He looked like the run of the mill mid-western kid, but Sean had a secret that burned a hole inside him. His rage was always just under the surface, and it frequently exploded.

 

A business owner since he was 17, by the time he was 20, despite his drug use, Sean’s strong work ethic made him a phenomenal success. But inside his head, the abuse still tormented him. He was full of self-loathing and felt he was never good enough. Angry to the point of planning his uncle’s murder, he was a loose cannon. How could he feel any different? Look what happened to him.

But that’s not the end of the story. Sean turned his life around, and he is writing an inspirational nonfiction book that will encourage other down-and-outers and show them that they can turn their lives around, too.

What’s the Purpose?

The purpose of Sean’s book is to show people who have lost faith in themselves and feel hopeless about their future, that no matter what’s happened to them or what they’ve done, that they don’t have to be defined by their past but can be prepared by it to live out their unique purpose and become the person they were truly meant to be.

There are over 27,000 reported cases of child abuse every year, but how many more don’t get reported? Hundreds of thousands of adults carry those scars, and I’m grateful that Sean Carney  stepped up to tell his story and offer hope and help to others. Living with the after-effects of child abuse is a problem, and Sean offers a solution. His inspirational nonfiction book may be painful to write, but it will be the voice of hope and help to those who have suffered similar situations.

117 Solutions in 2017

How about you? What do you know, what have you been through, what have you discovered or developed that can help others? What inspirational nonfiction book could you write that will bring hope to others? Please join us in our effort to find 117 Solutions in 2017!

The purpose of 117 Solutions in 2017 is:

  • To create a groundswell of solutions to problems that have, until now, seemed too big or impossible to resolve
  • To unleash the answers that are trapped inside of people
  • To change lives, save lives, and transform society
  • To use your life and your gifts and your resources to MAKE THINGS BETTER. Not because you must, but because YOU CAN!

Making a Difference with His Nonfiction Book

Tags : 

I hope you are following our mission to find 117 Solutions in 2017 because you will meet many ordinary, yet inspirational people, who are working hard to make this world a better place. Tom Hofmeister is such a man.

inspirational people

I met Tom at a conference several years ago and was immediately impressed with his work. I knew right away that he was one of the inspirational people in the world who need to share their story in a nonfiction book. He owns and operates elder care facilities that are nothing like anything I’d ever heard of before.

I’ve visited a number of nursing homes over time, and not long after I arrived, I always wished that my visit was over. Why did it smell so bad? Why were there so many wheelchair-bound residents parked in the halls? Why did most of the people sit in their rooms all day? This was the last stop on the journey of life, and I sure didn’t want to end up there.

Enter Tom Hofmeister of Elderfire Lodges.

Tom is building a network of elder care facilities that you wouldn’t recognize. He is solving the problem of parking your parents somewhere while they wait for the end. His lodges are bright and vibrant communities. They capitalize on the talents of their residents and get them involved in running the place. His lodges are destinations for community events, which bring in local residents for art shows, community meetings, and the Boy Scouts. The lodges are never sterile and antiseptic. Rather, they are built like a home with all the comfortable amenities you find in your own residence and, as a result, they are a favorite destination for family dinners and celebrations.

Far from feeling like they are parked and waiting for the end, his residents don’t have time for that. They’re too busy working with the local garden club or teaching their valuable skills to others. That’s the kind of place I want to live when I finally have to leave my home.

And, yes, Tom is writing a book. The purpose of his book is to introduce families of aging adults to this alternative approach to adult care, which allows them and their loved one to feel safe, secure, and respected, without increasing costs or sacrificing a home environment.

And, no, Tom is not a writer. He’s just an incredible person who has a solution that he wants to share with the world. Take a look at what Tom has to say about inspirational people who are not writers and how they can still put their story into a nonfiction book.

Tips to writing good copy

I am so proud of how far my client, David J.P. Fisher, has come! Not only has he published his book Networking in the 21st Century: Why Your Networking Sucks and What to do About it, he has also been able to author various versions of the book tailored specifically for LinkedIn, millennials, and within your company.

David J.P. Fisher (D. Fish) is a sought-after speaker, coach, and author. Building on 20 years of experience as an entrepreneur and sales professional, he combines nuanced strategy and real-world tactics to help professionals become more effective, efficient, and happy. As the president of RockStar Consulting, he works with individuals and organizations to develop more effective networking, sales, and entrepreneurial skills. 

David had been working on a book for six months and came to me with his first draft. He knew that he needed help crafting a coherent message out of everything he had written, and was looking around for an editor, which is how he found me. Along with editing, he knew he also needed someone else to help shepherd his writing to the next level. I wanted to catch up with David now to ask a couple questions about his experience and what is next for him. Take a look at what he had to say.

Featured Author: David J.P. Fisher

How was working with Nancy? What was great about it? What was difficult?

“Working with Nancy was fantastic. She really dug deep into the material to find the most powerful themes. She kept expecting the best from me, which made for a great book (and some late night writing sessions). It’s never easy to have someone tell you that you have to scrap one of your chapters that you worked on because it really doesn’t fit. But I trusted her and she was absolutely right on the money.”

How is your life now that you have completed your book? How do you feel? What have you experienced?

“Writing the first book was definitely a big hurdle, but I found that it was like running a marathon. Once you do one, you look back and want to do it again. I’ve published three shorter books in the ten months after publishing my first book, and there are more on the way. It’s definitely helped build my professional credibility and stature as an expert in my field.”

What is coming next for you?

“More books – I want to publish five in twenty fifteen, so I have one more left.  And more in twenty sixteen.  I wrote the books to help support my speaking career and that’s taken off as well.  So twenty sixteen will be a very busy year!”

Congratulations, David, on all of your success and wishing you the best for the future!

Writing a book online: Q&A with Lindsey Jacobs

Future author Lindsey Jacobs on finally sharing her story

Future author Lindsey Jacobs on finally sharing her story

In recognition of our upcoming Spring/Summer 2016 Group Writing Program kickoff, we wanted to take time to highlight our aspiring authors. Today, we are highlighting Lindsey Jacobs, a blogger and aspiring author who is writing her book, When Opportunity Knocks. Lindsey is a 40-year-old single mother and nursing student. She has completed the Ironman and is now driving for another achievement — to write her first book. Lindsey blogs about her experiences at RamblingRunnerGirl.com.

Tell us about your book. What inspired you to write it? 

How to write a book online lindsey jacobsI have always loved writing, and the dream to write a book has been alive in me from a young age.  I have written a couple children’s books (unpublished and sitting in my home office), and made notes for a fiction novel, as well as trying to keep up with my blog Ramblingrunnergirl.com that I started about three years ago.  However, the book that I am now working on is not at all what I had in mind when this dream began.

As human beings we morph throughout our lives, and over the last couple of years it became apparent that I have an important story to tell about the challenges I have faced and overcome. While going through a very difficult divorce about four years ago, I took up a new hobby — the triathlon. I have been a runner since the ripe old age of nine, but swimming was something I always avoided.  A good friend of mine convinced me to give triathlon a shot and, somewhat begrudgingly, I did. Even with several marathons (26.2 miles) behind me, the 10k at the end of that very first triathlon was physically the hardest thing I had ever done. From there the challenge grew to complete a half Ironman, which is 70.3 miles. It ultimately grew to complete of a full Ironman, which involves a 2.4 mile swim in open water, a 112 mile bike ride in the foothills of Arizona, and ends with a full marathon, for a total of 140.6 miles. I did that on a November day in a little over 15 hours.

As I have taken on this new hobby, it has been very clear that the triathlon, specifically something as tough as an Ironman, is very much a metaphor for life because there are three distinct parts to it. Some things in life threaten to overwhelm and overtake us, much like drowning. There are other things that we can sort of “fake it til we make it,” even if we wipe out once in a while which, in my case, is like biking. And there are the things that we are passionate about that bring us joy. For me, that is the final leg of triathlon, the 26.2 mile run. Suffering  various forms of abuse in my life, as well as some tragic losses, has been a lot to endure. I have battled depression, anxiety, PTSD, you name it. But looking back, I can see how those things strengthened me and molded me into the person I am now, and am continuing to become. I learned a lot about myself on the journey to become an Ironman, and it is my sincere hope that the lessons I learned in that process can be an inspiration to others who may feel trapped in their life circumstances. It is never to late to break out of the box, put the past behind, and live a life that you love.

What made you decide to participate in our Group Book Coaching program?

lindsey jacobs writing a book how to write a bookIn the fall, just before I met Nancy, I became friends with Paul Gilbride, another St. Louisan who is also a client of Nancy’s.  We talked about our personal stories, and he became very excited about introducing me to his book coach. I, too, was thrilled with the idea. This sounded exactly like what I needed to do to jumpstart the book that was formulating in my brain. I wouldn’t have attempted an Ironman without some expert advice, so why would I try to write a book without it?

At the time Module One: From Concept to Concrete Plan was just about to start. I was nearing the end of my Medical Assistant externship and had planned to take a break from work/school during December before jumping back in to the Nursing program in January. I also knew that my first semester of nursing school would be a light load due to transferred credits, so the timing seemed perfect, and I was excited to get this project off and running (pun intended. 😉  )


The purpose of my book is to show athletic women, aged 30-45, who feel trapped in their current circumstances that they have many choices. I encourage them to choose a path of their own and push through their struggles and fears, so they can create a life that they love.


What has been your favorite part of writing a book online through the Group Book Coaching program?

My favorite part was working on my BookMAPs. As Nancy often says, “While you are working on your book, your book is working on you.”  This couldn’t be more true. I’ve done a lot of hard work over the last few years to become the person I want to be, but through the process of mapping out my book, I have had a front row seat to witness the progress I’ve made.

I think the part of the program that has been most helpful is how Nancy breaks everything down into manageable chunks. The very possibility of writing an entire book can be somewhat daunting. But I actually look forward to each assignment because I’m confident that while it won’t be easy, it is something I can do and enjoy.

I would absolutely recommend this program for other aspiring authors. I believe that each of us has a unique story to tell, but we sometimes hold back out of fear or lack of direction. Anyone who has ever had a dream of telling their story can benefit from this program.

What has it been like to take on the process of writing your first book?

I am still in the beginning stage of the first draft of my book, but it’s just a matter of time before I put the many thoughts in my head into words to create the book that is inside of me.

I am no stranger to setting goals. As a 40-year-old single mom and nursing student who has completed an Ironman, I think it’s fair to say that I am driven to achieve. I have always been goal oriented, but the process of pursuing this dream–writing my book–has reminded me that facing fears and being vulnerable are an essential part of living. We are only given one life to live, and we need to make the most of the dreams we have. Those dreams ebb and flow with time, and our needs and abilities change, but for me personally, I always need to be in pursuit of something–even if that something is as simple as being the best that I can possibly be. Just like a marathon begins with a single step, my book begins with just a single word. It doesn’t matter how slow I’m going, as long as I continue moving forward, one step at a time. I know I will cross the finish line.

The Gift of Following Your Dreams from Author Joe Fingerhut

Tags : 

 

The Gift of Following Your Dreams from The Book Professor Nonfiction Author Joe FingerhutPart speaker, part entertainer, part crazy dad, and always fully engaged, author Joe Fingerhut has written a high-impact book that will change lives, save lives, and transform society for teens. He already knew he had special gifts to share with others and took it to a new level when he published his first book!

About New Author Joe Fingerhut:

In Permission to Play: How Teens Can Build a Life That is Fun, Fulfilling, and Promising, Joe shares his story about his transition from high school to college to a working man in light of his strong desire to do something different and have fun!

Joe did not want to spend his life behind a desk, and during his formative years, he explored all kinds of unusual employment options from working at Six Flags, to selling Cutco knives, to being his University’s school mascot, to being an  entertainer who both juggles and rides a unicycle, to being a wedding DJ. He was even a counselor at a kids’ Circus Camp.

Most of all, Joe wanted to travel, but when his parents looked at the education they’d provided him at a private high school and at Loyola University Chicago, they were not supportive of their son’s desire to gallivant around the world. It was time for Joe to buckle down and get serious. Or so they thought.

In this carefully woven narrative, Joe shares how he worked with his parents to understand what their hopes and dreams for his life were, while he also communicated his own passions about what he wanted to do. It could have been a time of extreme conflict between parent and child, but their testy times were few because Joe and his dad approached their differences with mutual respect. Joe took the good advice his father offered, and his dad listened to Joe’s input, learned what Joe wanted in life, and flexed on his demands.

The result was that Joe visited thirty countries on six continents in eight years—and built one dream life.

 

He met his wife while teaching English in Japan, and Joe is now an entertainer and International Youth Conference Speaker, who is in the midst of planning an Asian tour for his release of Permission to Play.

This book is required reading for any teen who feels uncertain about their future and is about to embark on “the rest of their life.” Joe shows you how your next steps can launch you on the path to build an adult life that is far better than you can imagine, while respecting your parents and their points of view.

A study guide is included, which is a perfect resource for small groups, Youth Groups, and study groups for parents.

Through his book and the study guide Joe not only provides a blueprint for following your dreams, he also injects you with powerful fuel, so you can blast through the excuses that hold you back and build a life that is fun, fulfilling, and promising.

Like Joe, we each have meaningful gifts inside us that allow us to create beauty in the world and to change the lives of those around us for the better. This holiday season, I encourage you to consider how you can foster the talents and ambitions within yourself or those of your family and friends with the presents you give them.

This year, for a limited time, I’m offering gift certificates for a short coaching session for prospective authors who need guidance from an international book writing and publishing coach. My consultation services are available at a discounted rate to help those who are ready to move their non-fiction book forward.

Helen Gennari is this month's Featured Author that recently celebrated with her book launch party for From The Heart of an Abandoned Daughter

Gennari’s autobiography launch party benefitted shelter for battered women

At the end of October my sweet friend and client, Helen Gennari, had a fabulous book launch party for her first book, From the Heart of an Abandoned Daughter: My Personal Journey Through Family Violence and Beyond, which benefitted Woman’s Place in St. Louis, a shelter for battered women. It has been wonderful to see her share her story about growing up with and surviving family violence and her desire to help others that struggle with similar situations.

Helen and I met after she had already completed much of her autobiography, but she needed some help to pull it all together and get it ready for publication. I asked Helen a few questions about her experience and what is next for her. Take a look at what he had to say.

Featured Author: Helen Gennari

How was working with Nancy? What was great about it? What was difficult?

“Nancy has been wonderful to work with. She is a person of integrity and compassion. She is supportive, knowledgeable, and available. The most difficult thing for me has been the fact that all of this is so new to me and I don’t always know the questions to ask. However, I’ve always felt that my questions were addressed with respect and understanding.”

How is your life now that you have completed your book? How do you feel? What have you experienced?

“My life is still very busy, the process of getting the book to print and all that goes with preparing to promote and sell is mind boggling. The best part of what I have experienced is the positive effect it is having on my family who are very supportive–and the many friends and colleagues who seem eager to read my book.”

What is coming next for you?

“I have dreams of a long vacation, time for some R & R. After that, get started on my next book, to be followed by a third. At 74 I hope to be able to keep up with my dreams.”

Any final thoughts you would like to share?

“I now consider Nancy a dear friend whom I hope to continue working with. She deserves the very best. I could not have done this without her and the resources to which she directed me.”

I simply adore Helen and am so thankful there are people like her in the world that will share their time and their hearts with me. Do you need help to get your nonfiction book ready to publish? Contact me today!

Here are a few photos from Helen’s Book Launch:
