Are Book Coaches Expensive?

Tags : 

If you are predisposed to view money as something you don’t have, you’ll probably see the price tag for a book coach and run the other way. It’s not worth it, you might think.  I can’t afford it, you might say. You will see the cost to write and publish your book as a risk you can’t afford to take. What you are actually saying is I’m not worth it, and you will disqualify yourself without exploring the options.

Writing a Book is a Financial Investment in Your Future

When you make the decision to write a book you must change your mindset. If your focus is just on the dollar amount upfront and not as an overall investment in your financial future, you might miss taking the next right step to financial security.

Meet Joe Fingerhut, Author of Permission To Play How Teens Can Build a Life that is Fun, Fulfilling, and Promising

“I don’t have the money.”

If you’re like Joe, a man who has spent his life figuring out how to get what he wants, you’ll say the same thing he did, “I don’t have all the money — yet.”

Joe saw that writing a book was an investment in his business, that it would be an extension of himself that could help him get more speaking engagements. The expense wasn’t something that would deplete him, it would expand him.

Over the next year, Joe followed my process to a tee, and built the components of his book line by line, chapter by chapter. When he finished his manuscript, it was my pleasure to be his editor and publisher. Of course, he didn’t have the money for that part of the project at the beginning, but by the time he finished writing, it was all there.

About six months after Permission to Play: How Teens Can Build a Life that is Fun, Fulfilling, and Promising hit the market, I ran into Joe at a conference and we sat next to each other.

“How’s the book doing?” I asked him. “What’s it done for your business?”

“Oh my gosh, Nancy,” he said. “It’s unbelievable. Because of the book, I’ve been able to raise my speaking fees. The first time I raised my price I was really scared. But no one even blinked! So I raised them again and I’m still fully booked.”

Being a published author gives you credibility and shows that you are an expert or authority on a particular topic. As an author, you have already proven that you can communicate your message, so event organizers are more likely to take you seriously as a possible candidate for a public speaking gig. New York Times Best Selling Authors can earn anywhere from $25,000 to $50,000 for a single speaking engagement (Source) but you don’t have to be on the Best Sellers list to book an event. The standard starting rate for non-fiction authors is between $2,500 and $5,000, plus the cost of travel and accommodations. (Source) By publishing your own non-fiction book, you become eligible for a pretty good pay rate right out of the gate and immediately present yourself as an authority on that book’s topic. Not only can you give talks based off the title and general subject matter of your book; you can also break your book down by chapter and address its issues in more detail. You put a lot of hard work into crafting your book, and that work can continue to pay off if you can repurpose your content into speaking events.

I Can Help

I have spent more than 25 years developing my process for helping authors share what’s inside of them. I’ve found that everyone has different roadblocks in the writing process-and that each of us must take his or her own path in the creation of their book.

I have developed three tools for writers who are seeking help writing their book, all available online. All of my expertise gained in working as a writing and publishing coach has been distilled into these tools to teach you how to write a book online.

With my three options listed below– Self- Study online writing classes, Executive Group Coaching, and 1 on 1 Coaching Writing and Publishing help – you can choose the pace and the price that feels right for you.

A published book is an invaluable asset when it comes to proving your credibility, and will most certainly improve your reputation and notoriety-an investment in your future! All you have to do is make the decision to write. Let’s get started!

Work with a Book Coach Online to Write Your Nonfiction Book

Tags : 

There is still time to register for the Group Book Writing and Publishing Program session that begins in September! If you’re still on the fence about working with a book coach online, here’s why you should finally make the commitment to finish your book.

work with a book coach online
There are many reasons to write a nonfiction book:

  1. You might have survived a harrowing experience and want to give others the strength to fight through their issues.
  2. Your business expertise may have driven you to the top of your field and you’d like to help others succeed.
  3. Perhaps you’ve been blogging for years and building your brand and you’re ready to write a book.

There are so many reasons to write a nonfiction book, but people always seem to focus on the reasons why they can’t. They make excuses like, “I’m not a writer” and “I wouldn’t know where to start.”  Working with a book coach online can help you start and finish your book, and it will ensure that you put out a quality product.

Why work with a book coach online?

Life is busy and it can be difficult to not only sign up for classes, but it also take the time to commute to class. When you work with a book coach online, you can access instructional videos, lessons, and handouts at any time, day or night. Your study time is whenever you want it to be. My Group Writing & Publishing Program includes homework assignments that will ensure that you are making progress on your book, as well as one-on-one coaching sessions. Halfway through each of the 3 modules, you will have a 45-minute one-on-one coaching session where you can go over your work in greater detail, discuss any issues or challenges you are facing, and receive valuable feedback. At the end of each module, you will have another 45-minute one-on-one session to discuss your overall progress in depth.

Why work with a group?

The Group Writing & Publishing Program is perfect for people who want constant motivation and feedback. Without structure, it’s easy to put off writing your book. The Group classes force you to carve out time to work on your book. Each 16-week module includes weekly Group Coaching calls that allow you to discuss your progress and get feedback from other members. In short, it’s your own Book Mastermind! The lessons are available online all the time, and the weekly Group Coaching calls are scheduled on the same day and time each week. Flexibility for solo study is great, but the regular meetings with your fellow writers ensure that you receive your weekly dose of motivation. They give you the chance to share what you have been working on, receive feedback, and workshop with other authors, while providing accountability and guidance, every step of the way.
