Let's Get You Started

The PUBLISH Program

PHASE ONE

Delivers your CORE STORY

PHASE TWO

Creates your PRE-PUBLISH Package

PHASE THREE

DELIVERS your manuscript

Phase One - CORE STORY

AS A WRITER

This where you start to sharpen your expert positioning. This is the most intensive phase of the program, that’s why it’s short. It’s four weeks, and we get to it. This phase is deep, it’s honest, and it delivers a framework for you to build on.

AS A WRITER

You will, use your unique voice and perspective to help establish you as an expert. You will articulate the Core Story that drives your industry, your business, or you. Accessing the vulnerability and uniqueness of your story will harness the power of it, and allow you to connect with a broad audience, stand out, and be remembered.

AS A WRITER

You will deliver, a 5,000-10,000-word DRAFT which will start to position you as an expert, on your topic, even if your topic is you, and your story. Whatever your reason for writing your book is, your Core Story can only be told by you, your way, for your reasons. A complete, polished, multi-purpose one-pager tells your story and operates as your pitch to potential new fans, markets, industries, and press-releases to enhance your public profile.

AS A WRITER

If you want to finally articulate your story, this is your opportunity to do so and reach a wider audience. If you want to enhance your business by establishing yourself as an expert, this is your chance to build a bulletproof calling card!
