An entrepreneurial mindset will help you make more money and take control of your career. That's true whether you’re traditionally published or go indie.

In this workshop, I’ll share strategies for creating a revenue-generating business without stifling your creativity or spending all day on spreadsheets. You’ll also learn the habits of six- and seven-figure authors—and how to make them your own. 

Among other items, I'll cover:

  • The best business plan for authors.
  • How to prioritize non-writing tasks (like marketing and bookkeeping) in a way that leaves more room for writing and creativity.
  • Ideas for being your own benefactor while you're waiting for your fiction to bring in income.

You probably won’t be surprised to learn that I always wanted to be an author. But as the first member of my family to attend college, I felt immense pressure to make the most of my scholarship and do something “useful.” After all, I’d heard the stories about starving artists, and most of my relatives worked in the auto industry in Detroit.

Thankfully, several people in my life—including a physician I worked for as a student researcher and my book-loving aunt and uncle—pointed out that I was most likely to succeed by pursuing my passion. I ditched my plan of becoming a doctor and set out to create a career in publishing.

After graduating from the University of Michigan and Harvard’s Radcliffe Publishing Course, I became a magazine editor specializing in health and psychology, then transitioned to a career as an independent journalist. I’ve written more than 1,000 reported articles for outlets including Forbes, The New York Times, O: The Oprah Magazine, Time,, and Real Simple, where I served as health editor. For more than a decade, I also ghost wrote and doctored non-fiction books, working on everything from New York Times bestselling series to self-published titles that topped the USA Today list. 

Then, after a decade of wondering if I’d ever do it, I wrote my first novel at age 30, right after my daughter was born. To date, I’ve published ten books, which have been #1 Amazon Charts and Washington Post bestsellers; my second novel, Life and Other Near-Death Experiences, has been optioned for film by Jessica Chastain’s Freckle Films. I’ve sold nearly a million books and my work has been translated into twenty languages. I’m currently the Guiding Scribe for the Women’s Fiction Writers Association.

Like many creatives, I used to think I had little control over my career—and my schedule and royalties reflected that. Then, after a major setback several years ago, I hired a coach.

Coaching was a complete game-changer for my author career. To my surprise, it improved the rest of my life, too. I learned to work through uncertainty and indecision by asking better questions. I beat burnout by taking control of my calendar, so that I always have time for my writing (even when I had two kids at home in the middle of a pandemic), as well as everything else that’s important to me. I more than doubled my income and figured out how to promote my work in a way that feels authentic instead of salesy.

I loved the coaching experience so much that, although my writing career was thriving, I decided to get certified as a coach so I could help other authors succeed. Since then, I’ve helped hundreds of writers build even better businesses, brands, and book careers—and I’d love to help you, too.
