9 Mindset Secrets to Writing AND Publishing a Book

Since my husband and I lead a free call on Writing and Publishing Your Book in 90 Days, it's clear to us that writing a book is a dream for many wellness pros… However, if you want to move dreaming about a book to holding a copy in your hands in a few months from now, there’s some things you need to do.

After the call, we’ve had the opportunity to connect with many self-employed wellness pros, coaches, consultants and other service based biz owners, and hear your thoughts and questions about our book writing program that begins in 15 days.

If you really want to become an author (and bring much more money into your business), then please read the rest of this post.

We’re going to address your questions (and fears!) and everything we’ve been hearing from you.

Many of which will create a mindset shift on what it takes to write a book AND get it published FAST.

Check it out…

(By the way, here’s the link to join us and access our free call recording: http://www.BookIn90Days.com/join/)

 

 1)    Am I really ready to write a book?

You’re as ready as you will ever be to write a book.

What if I put it to you this way?

Are you really ready to write that blog post? Think about it. While the notion of having to get super-prepared to write a blog post seems a bit silly, (of course you can write a blog post), that is essentially what you are doing when you write your book.

In either case, you’re just sharing an idea.

In the case of your book, you’re just going to go deep and expand on the one idea a bit more.

 

2)    I’m not sure I know enough.  

I’ve noticed that for lots of people who are in the business of helping others for a living, as much as they’d like to be seen (and paid!) like an expert, they are waiting around for someone or some big opportunity to come knocking on their door and anoint them.

Here’s the reality:

You are already an expert in something. You already have something valuable to share. No one is ever going to perceive you as an expert until you step into this role yourself.

The most powerful way we know to do this?

Write and publish a book!

http://www.BookIn90Days.com/join/

 

 

 

3)    I know TOO much. How can I possibly put it ALL into ONE book?

I hear you. However, I want you to know, the reason this feels overwhelming, that is, the idea of finally becoming an author (a real author with your OWN book) and getting your book done QUICKLY, is because you're thinking about book writing in the wrong way.

The wrong way (at least for biz owners) is to put everything you know, or try to, into a tome of a book that you can be proud of.

The downside of that is...

- no one reads big books any more (who has time!?)

- creating a book in that way takes FOREVER, if it ever gets done (keeping you as the best kept secret in town)

- and trying to share EVERYTHING you know in one book, is incredibly paralyzing

We want you to pick a topic, just a small chunk of what you know (the part that is wildly interesting to your tribe).

This will ensure that your book topic and title invites people to pick it up, read it and get a sense of accomplishment from easily finishing it.

And (this is the most important part) we want your book to inspire your readers to take a specific action. IE - call you to become a client, join your membership club, buy more stuff from you, whatever you want.

That's what happened to Drew just the other day.

A guy from across the country read his book, booked a coaching day (for several thousand dollars) and now is deciding between a 10K-20K coaching contract.

Cool, huh?

So relax, you don’t need to share everything you know. Whew!

We’re going to show you how to do this.

http://www.BookIn90Days.com/join/

 

4)    How do I know what topic to choose? What if I pick the wrong topic?

After the call, we got lots of messages from people thanking us, telling us that they we’re ready to write their books on their own without joining the program.

A few shared their book topic, title and ideas. While we applaud their enthusiasm, if we had to bet, if they indeed write these books they will end up feeling very disappointed because they were going to write on topics/titles that few people would be interested in.

In other words, while these folks have great ideas, understanding the best way to present your ideas is what determines a successful outcome from a disappointing one.

Please read that last sentence again. It can make or break your book’s success.

Again, you need to choose the RIGHT topic! (We will show you how!)

In fact, in order to ensure you DO pick the right topic, we decided to give EVERYONE in this program a private book coaching session with Drew.

In about 30 minutes or less, Drew will help you nail down your topic, title and/or outline.

Yep, he’s that good at it.

We’re clearing Drew’s schedule for November to make sure you’ve got this down BEFORE the Thanksgiving holiday.

In light of this we're limiting the program to 20 people.

5)    Who do I think I am? I’ve read the expert type books. I’m no Deepak, Wayne or other ENTER NAME OF GURU YOU ADMIRE.

Here are a few things to remember when this comes up…

Just because those experts have a book does not make them smarter than you. Or wiser than you.

It just means they made a very smart decision to write a book.

And what you probably don’t know is that in almost ALL cases, they weren’t well known BEFORE they wrote the book. (Read that again!)

Also understand that every expert (who gets paid well) has a book.

Stop and think about this for a second.

Think about the person in your field that you most admire,  respect, and consider really successful.

Does this person have a book? Of course they do.

Guess what?

For you to get where you want to go, at some point, you’re going to need a book.

Start now.

We’re going to take you through this process and guide you every step of the way.

http://www.BookIn90Days.com/join/

 

 

 

6)    I’m not sure how writing my book will make me money, beyond selling copies of the book.

If you want to be wildly successful in your field, you need to understand the following point. (If you do not wish to be wildly successful , you can stop reading this now).

A book is really just the beginning…

When you write your book in the right way, it will require you to start thinking differently.

(This is what our program is REALLY about, by the way!)

Specifically, thinking like a successful entrepreneur. One who leverages their time, energy and makes money.

How?

First, your book, if you write it with us, will get you out of the trading “time for dollars” business model, by positioning you as the expert you are and give more people an opportunity to experience your great work.

Second, in our program, you’ll create a book that is designed to motivate people to invest in your services and products.

Don’t have any products to sell? No problem. The third idea of writing the book in our program,  is to inspire you to start creating information products by using the same design files and vendor relationships you’ll create in this program. Info-products sell for hundreds and thousands of dollars. It’s a game changer.

And lastly, we’ll be teaching you all the different, creative ways to make money with your book, no matter where you are in your business.

You won’t have to figure this out on your own.

http://www.BookIn90Days.com/join/

 

 7)    I’m not sure I can write a best-selling book. I’m not that great of a writer.

Most people write a book with hopes of hitting the bestseller list and becoming rich and famous. While that’s the hope, it also a major stumbling block. After all, you don’t know the first thing about writing a bestseller, do you?

For lots of people, this daunting notion that their book needs to be an all-time classic is what keeps them from writing anything.

THIS IS THE WRONG APPROACH TO WRITING A BOOK TO BENEFIT YOUR BUSINESS AND MAKE MONEY.

The RIGHT way to write your book means that you understand that when done correctly, the purpose of your book isn’t to try to get on the best-seller list. (Although that’s very cool if that happens!)

The purpose of a book, for business owners in particular, is to give people valuable information about a subject that you (and they) love. And by the time they finish your book, the logical conclusion in their mind is to invest more into your programs and services.

Consider this: I can make more money from one new client who’s read my book than 99% of the authors in the world who only make money from selling their books.

This is because I understood what the book is designed to do before I even wrote it, and as a result, I wrote the RIGHT book.

 

8)    Can’t I do this on my own?

Of course you can do this on your own. As we’ve been saying, there really is nothing especially difficult about this.

But consider this…

Right this minute, do you know how to get your book on a Kindle or an iPad? Do you know the best way to get your book printed and distributed without you having to buy hundreds of copies upfront? Do you know what it should cost to have your book formatted? Do you have a plan for how you will use your book to make more money?

We do.

We invested A LOT of time and money learning the answers to all these questions, many of which you have not begun to consider. And we can tell you from experience that making one mistake will likely cost you more than what we’re charging for the entire program.

For the serious business owner who values their time, this program is an investment, not an expense.

 9)    Why do I need the structure of this program?

We heard from some people that they we’re not sure they needed the structure of this program to write their book.

Shortly after the start of 2012, members of this program will get a box in the mail. They will rip it open and feel the thrill of holding their creation, their new book, in their hands for the first time. Later there will be a celebratory toast…

Going forward, their business will have a much clearer identity and focus and they will have many ways to make money from this creation.

And they will be published authors; experts in their fields.

Will you?

Here’s to becoming authors in 2012!

How to Write AND Publish Your Book

Guest post by my hubby, Drew Rozell, PhD of VeryCoolLife.com Are you ready to finally write (and publish!) that book that you've been threatening to write for years now?

If your answer is "yes" I encourage you to join me this Wednesday, October 12th, 2011. (Details below)

Writing my book, The Very Cool Life Code, has been one of the very best things I've ever done for my coaching business (the only thing that comes close would be creating my website in 1998).

The thing is, I struggled to write a book for about a decade. I wrote thousands and thousands and thousands of words with nothing to show for my efforts.

I also wrote about 10 versions of book proposals, and spent a lot of time and energy trying to convince agents and publishers to believe in what I had to offer.

Looking back and knowing what I know now, I can see how misguided I was with my old approach.

The fact is that when I finally got coached on the RIGHT way to think about my book and HOW to write it easily, I wrote everything in less than 60 days. And it was easy.

What's more, I ended up with a product that I love, and my book has become the most powerful tool for attracting new people (and the RIGHT people) into my network. It's been a game-changer for me.

I had been thinking about teaching everything I've learned about writing and publishing a book into a program for a while. At my recent Very Cool Life live event, I asked the folks there if they'd be interested in learning this stuff and every hand went in the air. That told me I was on to something…

So, here it is…

My wife Karin (the marketing wiz) and I will be hosting a free call, Wednesday October 12th to go over everything you need to know about the easiest, most effective ways to write and publish your book in 90 days.

If this is something that you've dreamed of, join us. It will be fun and worth your time.

Writing my book has upgraded my life is so many ways. If you're interested, I'd like to share with you everything I've learned…

 

Weekend Sale! New Home Study Course

Okay, okay, I'm sorry! I've been getting emails asking why I only released my home study course yesterday to a select group of people.

Let me explain...

I only meant to treat my close clients and their friends a little extra special.

But I guess it kinda back fired.

Now I have a bunch of wellness pros breathing down my neck, sending me notes on facebook and writing my assistant.

Even one from the Ukraine!

So to make up for any misunderstanding, not only am I opening the doors right NOW, I'm also giving you the client and friends coupons to save BIG.

Below is the pre-sale invitation I sent to my clients yesterday, including the $100 off coupon that ends this Sunday, August 7th, at Midnight.

Check it out... (and now you can stop emailing me already.) :)

---

I feel so neked. ;)

If you read my email from earlier this week, then

you know what I’m referring to. (I hope the ninja

mindset secrets were helpful. I received quite a

few funny emails from that!)

Now I’m finally ready to pull back the curtains.

Introducing my new home study course…

The Fast Start to Clients Program:

8 Weeks to Jumpstart Your Practice Success in

Holistic Health and Wellness

I created it to help you re-design and re-launch

your business around what really works in the

wellness field (or show you the ropes if you’re a

newbie) WITHOUT a fancy pants website, WITHOUT a

brand and WITHOUT needing an amazing social media

presence.

Things like how to charge, creating programs that

sell, what to say in your first session to have

people say YES, how to invite people to that first

session in a variety of different and effective

ways and lots of mindset stuff to help your inner

game too.

It’s my “keep it simple and get your practice off

the ground” program.

You can go here now to check it out:

http://www.FastStartToClients.com

And because you’re one of my special “advance

notice” friends, I want to give you first dibs on

a few bonuses…

1)       The Weekend Sale - Only for you and your friends!

If you want a copy for yourself or perhaps you

would like to share your “in the know” good

fortune with a friend, I’m offering $100 off the

program for this weekend only Aug 5-7 (full-pay option

only).

This weekend sale will expire this Sunday, August 7th at

Midnight.

You can use it yourself and/or share with a friend

or two or three or more.

When you check out, just enter the word “friend”

in the coupon box -and the online shopping cart

will calculate your savings.

Please note, this is for the full-pay option only.

2)       Free Shipping!

Until this Sunday, August 7th, Midnight I’m

offering free shipping on the full pay AND 3-pay

option.

That’s an additional savings of $16 - $32,

depending where you live.

Enter the coupon code: "shipfree" when you check out

(I love free shipping, don’t you?)

3)       The First 30 People…

The first 30 people who take action and grab a

copy will be invited to a small group coaching

call in September to ask me ANYTHING about their

business and this program.

I love these intimate coaching calls with plenty

of time for in-depth Q&A.

I think they’re fun and my clients find them very

rich in practical step-by-step support and biz

wisdom from my 10+ years of self-employment and 5+

years as a wellness pro.

My assistant Heidi will notify you next week if

you’re one of the first 30.

I wanted to give you a head start before I open

this up to my entire email list next week.

4)       And just for fun…

When you grab your copy, you’ll start receiving a

few of my “get the most out of this program” email

tips to keep you focused on results while you wait

for the mail carrier to hand deliver your materials.

I’ll share my nerdy little secrets that I turn to,

time and time again, to ensure I get results from

the many home study courses I invest in each year.

My clients love it when I share this stuff.

Alright, get to it!

Here’s the link again:

http://www.FastStartToClients.com

And don’t forget the coupon codes above!

(You'll need to type them in, one at a time)

They expire this Sunday night.

Got questions? Email my assistant Heidi at

Members@WellProNet.com and she’ll help you out.

To your success,

Karin

P.S. Make sure you check out the quirky video I

did from my observation deck on our property.

It’s here: http://faststarttoclients.com

You’ll see where I live! :)

The Big Lie and the Problem with Passion

When I went to wellness school in 1999, half way through the program I quit my full-time job and started seeing clients. My class mates clapped and cheered me on. I was following my dreams! I was going for it! I was finally going to make a living from my passion! No more boring corporate job! Waa hoo!

I attracted a surge of first clients, enough to make me think I knew what I was doing. But since I didn’t know anything about running a business or attracting clients in any systematic way, I wasn’t able to replicate it when those clients finished my program.  

 Darn it.

 And so I started to feel a wee bit down on myself.

 Solution? Get re-inspired! Work harder! See what everyone else is doing and try that!

 So I started to invest in more books, classes and pretty much anything that would get me feeling passionate again.

 Things like…

Spending time with  colleagues talking about my passion –  usually very long lunches under the guise of helping each other with our practice.

Spending even more time learning more about my passion – investing in books, classes, conferences and other continuing education in my modality to make me feel like a professional.

Spending countless hours reading up on the web, fussing with my website and checking out what my colleagues were doing.

To my surprise and increasing debt load, none of it helped me attract clients and actually help people.  

But I was passionate!

Looking back, I was engaged in busy work that felt productive but did nothing to move my practice closer to what I had envisioned for myself, my work and my quality of life.  

Hook, line and sinker, I had bought the big lie.

And here it is: If you’re passionate enough you will succeed.

Can I save you about three years of frustration, overwhelm and expensive trial & error?

Passion is a given. No one starts anything, let alone a private practice, without passion.

But passion alone is not enough to succeed. (Shocking, I know!)

The thing that connects you to your clients and the tribe that you were meant to serve, isn’t learning more about your modality or feeling passionate. (While it's important, it's not the bridge to the people you want to help.)

It is learning a few business skills and becoming good enough at marketing.

That is the only difference between the vast majority of passionate wellness pros who wish they were more successful and those who are passionate AND successful.

On Wednesday, January 19th at 3pm eastern I'll be talking more about this topic on a free teleclass about How to Transform a So-So Practice into Rock Star Status.

Wishing you continued health and success in 2011,

WellProNet Tele-Training: How to Talk About What You Do, Nov 4

Do you really have to create the PERFECT 30-second one-liner to explain your wellness services? Maybe, if you spend most of your time going to professional networking events and cocktail parties as a marketing strategy.

For those of you who cringe at that idea, I have a better approach.

I would like to show you how to HAVE A MEANINGFUL CONVERSATION about your work, that will naturally guide the person you're connecting with to decide if continuing a professional relationship with you makes sense for them.

I have found that these types of authentic conversations between two people (be it at a party, in a one-on-one networking situation, telephone chat, coffee date or meeting) follow a series of questions that if you know how to answer, in a relaxed and confident manner, will be infinitely more client attractive than some elevator speech.

In this month's WellProNet training I'm going to share with you what these questions are and how to answer them effectively and authentically.

In fact, once you start using this approach to talking about what you do, you'll be amazed how often these conversations flow using THE EXACT SAME QUESTIONS. So in no time you'll become really good at answering them.

I'll also show you how to elegantly end this conversation when you sense someone is just trying to pick your brain for free info (and never plans on doing anything with it) or when someone wants to debate you on the merits of your modality. (Both have happened to me countless times as a wellness pro until I learned a few empowering tricks!)

It's all happening in the next Wellness Professional Network tele-training...

WellProNet Tele-Training: Creating a Very Cool Life in Private Practice, Sept 9

What's the point of running your own wellness biz and changing lives for a living if it's going to be no fun for you. After all, you can be so-so happy working for someone else, right?

Isn't a big reason you started your own thing to enjoy a good quality of life too?

So what is the secret to making a great living while also enjoying a rich and rewarding lifestyle?

Is it achieving 6-figures or a million dollar business? Well, that may help, but it's not at all necessary.

Is it being so busy with clients that your bank account is full but your lifestyle is seriously out of whack? Nope.

It's all about understanding WHY you're in business for yourself and designing a profitable practice that honors your big 'why" AND the lifestyle you want to live.

I learned this directly from my husband and phenomenal coach, Drew Rozell, PhD.

We've been together for about 5 years and he was the first person to model NOT being a slave to your business.

And I'm proud to say that a peaceful, uncomplicated, high-quality lifestyle is at the center of all of our successful business decisions.

I invited Drew to speak to WellProNet members on what he's learned in his 13+ years in coaching practice.

As our guest teacher for the Sept 9, 2010 WellProNet tele-training, Drew will discuss and offer coaching on...

- why it's important to know WHY you're in business for yourself (beyond your desire to help others and do something meaningful with your time)

- why modeling a very cool life, however you choose to define that, is one of the most client attractive things you can do (and how over-working, over-giving and care-taking your clients is NOT client attractive)

- and simple, practical ways you can begin to create your version of a very cool life while making a difference for a living

Bring your questions and be prepared to interact with Drew to make the most of this one-time opportunity for coaching from one the best veterans in the coaching field. No, I'm not at all biased! ;)

WellProNet Tele-Training: Avoiding Networking Turnoffs, Jul 8

As wellness pros, we all have to network.  Some people attend a weekly networking meeting and others prefer a more intimate, one-on-one setting meeting with potential referral partners for tea. Knowing how to do this right can bring momentum to your practice. And when you do things the wrong way, you'll get very little results. Who has time for that?

In July's WellProNet tele-training I'll be sharing my best practical tips and mindset insights for making your networking profitable, enjoyable and completely authentic.

We'll cover:

- What are the turn offs you want to avoid when networking in groups or one-on-one (I've been on the receiving end of some bad networking, and been in some seriously awkward situations and I'll share the behind the scenes of what works and what doesn't)

- The secrets to inspiring someone to help your business grow (No, it's not asking people "can I pick your brain?" HINT: That's a turn off.)

- What to do when you're at a networking function that doesn't involve shaking everyone's hands and forcing your business card upon others (whether you're a networking natural or really nervous about it)

- Some very practical strategies that cost practically nothing and make you look like a total pro

- And some bonus resources for those of you who really want to super charge your networking an essential part of your practice success 

This class is like giving you my Cliff Notes to 10 years of networking experience ,  and all the books I read and trainings I took ( I even won an "notable networker" award once). And believe me, I'm NOT one of the natural types who loves to chit chat with anyone and everyone. If I can do this, so can you.

This tele-training is for current members of WellPronet.org only.

Free Teleclass: Branding and Launching Your Wellness Biz

I'm hosting a free tele-class this Friday on "Branding and Re-Launching Your Wellness Biz the RIGHT Way". It's totally free and I'll be covering what wellness pros need to put in place to launch (or re-launch) your wellness biz without all the costly mistakes, frustrations and time-consuming guess-work I went through in the first three years of my wellness biz.

This call is especially designed for wellness pros who are in one of these two positions...

1) You're in the first 3 years of your practice and you have yet to put your brand, message, and marketing into a cohesive, compelling message that makes you stand out from a sea of similar professionals. You know you're here to make a difference, you've taken risks to transition into a wellness career but you haven't put all the business pieces together yet. And you know you need to, or else you'll have to go back to your corporate life. You've got a lot at stake and you're ready to take passion for wellness seriously.

2) You've been doing your modality for a long time now, maybe 10+ years, and doing well enough, but your marketing and business systems pretty much stink. You've been surviving on referrals and word-of-mouth. And since the recesssion hit, your biz may have taken a hit too because of this. You know you're good at what you do, now you just need to build the business engine to fuel your vision.

In addition to sharing some branding and marketing wisdom you on the call, I'll also be making two very special, very big, and very personal announcements about me and my own biz and how I can help wellness pros like you, blow past their branding and marketing barriers and re-launch your biz RIGHT.

I hope you can make it.
