Many of my readers in my newspaper column ‘Pointers on Publishing’ have been reaching out to me to get tips and advice on book marketing among other things. It is a challenge to offer advice when I really don’t have an idea what they are writing about, target audience etc but more than that, it seems that while they may have good intentions, they would like me to offer what I know for free. I have said time and time again, if you are serious about your success, then you need to invest in yourself. If you don’t, I can’t convince you otherwise. Just let the results speak for itself and don’t complain.
I offer lots of free resources and tips via my articles in the newspaper, my blogs, my online radio show and my newsletter. I don’t think it is fair for me to keep giving away my intellectual property that I invested thousand of US$ so if you really respect what I do and what I can offer you, then respect that it will come at a cost. It’s up to you.
While you may make the investment, there is no guarantee of the results unless you take action. Collecting and harnessing knowledge means absolutely nothing if it is not put into practise on a consistent basis. In other words, you can’t blame anyone else except you for the lack of results you may receive. Also keep in mind that patience is key in obtaining results. Many people who you see having success now have been at it for over 10-15 years just being consistent with the necessary activities. I am not saying it will take you that long but you have to be patient and consistent because just when you are about to give up, that’s when the corner may turn for you.
Don’t watch the results of others. It cannot be used as a reference for you either. What is for you is for you. Just keep focused and do what you have to so. As someone close to me said, “if you just keep doing what you need to do; when it meets God’s timing, a spark happens and there is nothing you can do to control it!”
Now after saying all that, I came up with the idea to start a ‘Pick My Brain’ group coaching series. To keep things simple and manageable, there will be two sessions per month. Each session will focus on two distinct areas: Publishing/Marketing and Online Business/Entrepreneurship. These are the two with greatest demand.
I have set up two registration forms for each area plus a third form just in case you want to take advantage of both areas. It just means you will benefit from picking my brain twice per month (smile)
The times when we do not meet will be for you to implement what you learned and of course come back to the session to share your success stories or challenges so help can be offered.
Each session is at a cost of US$25 per person per month. Should you happen to miss a session, which you shouldn’t, but just in case you do, you will get access to the recordings in a secure environment. Details will be shared on that when you get started.
Ok so let’s see how serious you are about your book and entrepreneurial success . Here are the links to get started:
See you on the inside!
