A Book Is The New Business Card: How To Write & Publish Your New Business Card

In this session the participants will learn how to write and publish their book which is the new business card and elevate themselves to expert status by becoming a published author. A major pain point for most small business owners and entrepreneurs is that they don’t understand the process of publishing a book and what it takes to begin their writing and publishing journey. I am going to teach the participants how to get their book written and published by giving them the proper resources that they need to accomplish this task successfully. This is my BIG promise to all participants who sign up for my session. He/she will learn the difference between publishing and self-publishing, the tools that will assist them with accomplishing this task, how to outline their chapters, and they will gain a better understanding of how to select the most appropriate topic for their business as well as all the essentials needed to get a book published such as copyright, barcode, ISBN etc.

Who Should Attend This Session:

This session is geared towards the small business owner or entrepreneur who is seeking to build their brand by publishing a book. A published book is going to strengthen a business owner’s brand because once an individual becomes a published author people instantly elevate them to expert status and people want to work with experts which leads to more exposure. There are many benefits to this and the most important is that experts are paid more and haggled less when it comes to compensation.

The thing that makes time so tricky and hard to manage is that it’s elusive. You can’t see it or touch it, and you’re certainly having a hard time managing it.

Get Them To Take Action! How To Organize Your Presentation

Developing the skill to confidently and professionally deliver a speech or presentation is powerful in business! However, the delivery is only one component of a memorable presentation. The structure of the content is crucial in ensuring you effectively and clearly communicate in a manner that helps your audience understand your message. The presenter needs more than great content. You need to present in a way that grabs the audience’s attention, walks them through your message and ultimately gets them to take action. If your presentation is not organized, your audience will have to search for the message. That requires effort that most audiences will not give. If they are unclear about your message and they are not engaged, you will lose their attention. Organizing your presentation will keep them right there with you.

This workshop will provide the roadmap to help you organize your presentation using a format that can be used over and over to achieve maximum results.

Who should attend this session?

This workshop is designed for ANYONE interested in improving their presentation skills and becoming a more confident communicator – including sales professionals, business owners, engineering and technical professionals, government employees, banking executives, medical professionals, pharmaceutical industry personnel, educators, accountants and many more.

In this session you will learn about greening your product or service, your workspace and your brand. Those who attend this session will be able to implement these strategies immediately to cut overhead, attract more clients and become more relevant in a changing marketplace.

So You Think You Want to Start a Non Profit?

Do you feel a burden within you to help a certain group of people, or the environment, or erecting or maintaining a building? Are you wondering how you can lift that burden by doing what you have a burning desire to do? Well, starting a non-profit may be the way.

So what should you consider when thinking about starting a non-profit? Ask yourself, “Is a nonprofit right for me? What are my choices? What do I want to do and why? What does it mean to start a nonprofit? What are nonprofits, legally? What does tax-exempt really mean? Will I get compensated for my hard work? Will I need a business plan? What would stop me from getting tax-exempt status?”

Get the answers to these questions and more during the “So You Think You Want to Start a Non-Profit” workshop and move from asking questions to fulfilling your quest!

Show Me The Money… to Finance the Next New York Times Best Seller

Most of us are familiar with that famous scene when Jerry Maguire and Rod Tidwell have the shouting match of the century with “Show Me the Money” as the chorus. If you are writing a book, then you too will be shouting “Show me the money!”

If you are self-publishing, in order to write, edit, publish, market, and distribute your book, you will need some moolah, currency, cheddar, or in plain English terms: money. If you are traditionally publishing then your investment will be much smaller, but you will still have to invest in editing before submitting your work to an agent or publishing house for review. In this workshop we will identify some cost effective methods for financing your book project so that you can enjoy the journey to getting your book published by:

  • Identifying what are the standard publishing costs,
  • Evaluating your non-monetary literary resources, assets and liabilities,
  • and looking at potential in-house and outside streams of revenue for your project.

Who should attend this session?

If you are an Aspiring Author, Freelance Writer, Entrepreneurs or Speaker than this is the workshop for you! If you have a little money or lots of money and want to use wisdom in preparing monetarily for your book publishing project than this is the workshop for you.
