Get Paid to Write Your Book
I won’t ask you if you want to write a book – the answer to that is easy. Either you do or you don’t. What I will ask is this: If you knew that you could get paid to write a book and that you would be supported throughout the entire process by a team of experts who knew exactly what to do and when, WOULD YOU WRITE A BOOK?

Our current economy is like a modern-day gold rush. Everyone is putting their art, their work, their service, out into the market. How do you stand out from the rest? What will give you that edge you need to be appealing to potential clients? You want your potential clients to be emotionally moved. You want them to realize, in a very real way, that you have the answer to a burning question they may not even know they had. You want to make value tangible.
For as many women who have become successful entrepreneurs, there are also women who have found themselves seemingly buried in the muck. You know the feeling: Over-analyzing, over-thinking, overwhelmed. You’re stuck! Fortunately, my guest for today’s podcast has a formula for getting you out of that mess and back on track to success.

Finding Clients is Hard
Are clients truly hard to find? Or is that a “scapegoat” thought tailored to get us out of doing the work we’re a little bit unsure of? What if neither statement is wholly true? Many people hold the belief, “Clients are hard to find.” Newsflash! You’re not alone! Even better: It just means your brain is functioning properly!
In this episode, I’ll ask you some questions to consider and walk you through identifying other limiting thoughts, the emotions that accompany them, and how they might manifest.
