Private VIP (Very Impactful Person) Book Coaching
One-on-one coaching is designed for leaders who are READY to step up onto a bigger stage to be more visible and share their message in a bigger way as authors. Are you ready to face your fears and share your story?
Writing a book is like any other project, right? Well, it is and it isn’t.
Writing your book is nothing short of a personal and professional transformation.
Support with that transformation helps you make it happen
All the guidance in the Unleash Your Inner Author Coaching Program gives you the information you need and your coach guides you through every step. Your book coach is there to help you talk it out, share knowledge and experience, hold you accountable, and to see the gaps that you might not see.
For example, I was working with Doreen, a first-time author, who was struggling with completing even one chapter. She would get part of it down and then stop, frustrated. I asked her to just tell me the story right then. So she started. She got partway into it and said, “See? I just don’t know where to go with it after that!” So I asked a question. And she told me more. I asked her to dig deeper and tell me the next part and how she felt about it, how she experienced it. And the next part, the transformation that happened. She wove together a story that filled my heart and taught me something I would never have known. That’s the transformation her readers desire.
Then I asked her what was keeping her stuck, why she couldn’t write the story before. She said, “Every time I tell a story with my family, someone cuts me off and tells their own story.” Her fear of being interrupted kept her from telling a story all the way through and made her believe her stories were boring. In reality, Doreen is a powerful storyteller with dozens of compelling adventures to share. It turned out that with some support she could tell her story and get to the other side of her own “story” that she just couldn’t do this. The pain point Doreen overcame was believing that she wasn’t a good storyteller.
That is the power of the coaching relationship. It’s why I do what I do. That kind of breakthrough and the success and feeling of accomplishment that comes with it.
Sometimes in coaching, there are tears, breaking through barriers and fears. Most times there is laughter and celebrating the power of sharing a positive message. Every time there is growth and confidence and curiosity about what’s next.
First-time authors don’t know what they don’t know. That’s why I created the step-by-step Unleash Your Inner Author System to make sure authors deeply understand their mission, their readers, themselves as authors. Then these passion-driven writers develop a roadmap to effectively tell their stories, become stronger writers, and empower their readers to make their own transformations.

Here’s some information about the “twisty path” I took to become a coach for authors. (Skip to 1:12 in the video to save some time. Please watch the video so you see I don’t always have this goofy expression!)
Before you enroll in the coaching program, I like to get to know you and understand your book dreams. So let’s talk!
“I cannot begin to tell you how much I enjoy our sessions! All the information has left me with a desire to dive deeper into the questions you gave as I learn more about storytelling and myself.” -Lisa, Colorado
