Nurturing Your BIG Ideas - Your Developmental Editor and Book Coach
ready to help you write and publish your book this year.
I'm a passionate writer and former book publisher. Today I'm a business coach and a developmental editor for those smart folks writing books who need a helping hand. I became "me" when I discovered so many women who 'wanted to write a book' but didn't think they could. Or, thought they could start a business, but were confused about how to start.
Here's the truth - whoever you are, you CAN write that BOOK or START that BUSINESS. I truly think You SHOULD -write your BOOK. Start your BUSINESS. To that end, I am offering to be your GUIDE and NURTURE you every step of the way - personally and PROFESSIONALLY.
And I have a talented, professional team behind me - for those little parts I don't do on my own.
Are you ready?
Look, you won't find anyone more passionate and committed to helping you create a business and a product you can be proud of. I know what it's like to have that big book/business idea, and wonder, "Who am I to think I can write a book or start a business?"
I was there, not so long ago. Yes, I am a consummate writer, have been since grade school. But writing a book that will help other professionals be successful - who the heck am I to think I can do that? Helping women write a book? Create and successfully build a business? Why me? Because I believe in you. I can help you build what you desire. I can teach you to become successful.
Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine, or believe, I would be Woman of the Year for anything, anywhere, at any time! And then I was.
Woman of the Year, 2015
The picture from 2015 is from the night I was honored - awarded - the title Woman of the Year in the Pet Industry Network.
I cherish that night like no other. I may have to write a book about it, someday.
I didn't plan on being woman of the year. But, I was. I didn't have a speech ready. I looked around the room when they called my name, and finally, my daughter gave me a nudge and said, "That's you. They're calling your name."
Me!?! Really? Me? I didn't believe it! And that proved, later on, to be silly of me. Because I deserved it. I had built something wonderful in the pet space (BlogPaws, a pet influencer community that was acquired by a Fortune 500 company), and I had become a person to know, in that space. I was just too lost in the past, where unkind people criticized me and made me believe I would/could never succeed.
Walking up to that podium to receive my award was harder than almost anything else I've ever had to do. My feet were like heavy stones that struggled to drag me down as I climbed the three steps to the stage. But I made it. All the way. I did. And, I accepted that award with a smile as big as the entire universe! It will forever be the most valuable thing to talk about on my resume, in public speaking, or anywhere else I share my story.
Because it taught me to believe in myself and in my leadership skills. It helped move me from inaction to action. Understand, I had already written a successful book, and been the founder of a successful publishing business, but this - an award announcing I was Woman of the Year - it opened my eyes to realizing I had the talent, the magic, and the know-how to be whatever I chose to be, from that moment forward.
You don't need an award to finally believe in yourself. You have me. I believe in you. I know there is talent and magic in you. I know there is a story to tell. I can nurture you gently and purposefully, to get that story out. It's a process. Simple and sincere, but still a process.
The best way to build it, is to get started right now.
Email me and we'll have a quick call together. A Zoom.
Or just a call, whatever you prefer.
We'll get acquainted and figure out how to take your book or business idea from dream to reality.
Nurturing Big Ideas is here to mentor you, to guide you, to teach you how to get from big idea to published book to becoming "the author of".
Becoming is more than putting words to paper, until a book forms. It's fully embracing the believe and build process, until you become that person - the person who wrote the book that changed the world.
Confidence and Joy
My exclusive process is individually designed for you.
Each client is unique. Each process is unique. Yes, I am all about helping
you believe, and build, to finally become a winner all the way around. But more than that, I'm all about helping you tell your story, so other women, just like you are now, can learn from you, and be inspired to use their talent and magic for whatever their hearts desire.
It comes from many years of working with smart, talented women
who are women of the year and just don't know it yet. Women who need that guidance and mentoring, to smooth out their journey into business success.
