Get Ready to Write!
The 5 Things You NEED to Know Before You Start Writing
So, you want to write a book?
You have a great idea, and you’re excited to dive in. You know this book will be amazing for your brand, your business, and your expert status. You know that it will open doors that you can’t even conceive of right now ...
But you don’t know where or how to begin.
It’s okay. Big ideas (and big dreams) are like that. They’re BIG. But every dream that comes true starts the same way: with a solid plan.
That’s why, before you put a single word on paper, you need to
Did you know that 97% of people who start writing a book never finish it?
Yup, you read that right, only 3% of people who start writing a book actually finish.
That's a pretty sobering statistic. But why does it happen? Why don't more authors finish what they start?
One of the biggest reasons why most authors give up halfway through is that they’re writing without a plan.
I’ve seen it over and over again. Authors who don’t know …
- What to write
- Who they’re writing for
- Why they’re writing
- How to write
- and What to include (and When)
… often throw in the towel before they finish so much as a first draft. They get overwhelmed, confused, or veer off-track. They lose touch with the reasons why they wanted to write a book in the first place. They meander through a few chapters while their ideas are fresh, and then let the big dream slowly slip away.
Don’t let this happen to you.
The world NEEDS your big ideas, your dreams, and your knowledge. People need to hear your story, learn your methods, and create the positive changes only you can teach them how to achieve.
And YOU need a book that will help you shine as an expert in your field, and open doors to new levels of visibility and influence. You can’t afford to waste time writing in circles.

I have four words for you:
Get Ready to Write!

In this course, I’ll show you exactly how to get in touch with the 5 things you NEED to know about your book before you start writing―What, Who, Why, How, and When―and put them to use creating an actionable, easy-to-follow plan for writing your book.
