Navigating the Narrow Bridge , How to Move Forward Freely and Courageously Even When Life Seems Most Precarious
Rebbe Nachman of Breslov said, “A person walks in life on a narrow bridge. The most important thing is not to be afraid.”
This lecture will discuss how fear prevents us from achieving our highest potential and immobilizes us on the path to our dreams. No matter how much or how little fear we experience, to some extent that fear stops us from living our lives fully and creating the life we desire.
The Six Pillars of High Performance
Learn how high performance can help you live more fully and achieve your potential. Discover the six pillars of high performance: psychology, physiology, productivity, persuasion, presence, and purpose. In the process, level up your clarity, courage, energy, productivity, and influence personally and/or professionally.
How to Craft a Book that Sells
The average book today sells only about 250 copies per year and 3,000 in its lifetime. Improve your odds of becoming a successful author by producing a business plan for your book before you write a word. As you do, you develop an Author Attitude, craft a marketable book idea, and evaluate your idea and yourself through an acquisitions editor’s lens. You also develop a career plan to help you reach your goal: successful authorship.
Learn how to determine if your book is not only a great creative idea but also marketable product—a viable business venture. Go through the Author Training Process, the foundation for creating books that sell—to publishers and to readers! This nine-step evaluation tool helps you determine if your book is ready to go to market—to be shopped to agents, publishers or readers—and if you are ready to become an author.
This session is appropriate for fiction writers and for nonfiction writers and for writers planning to self-publish or traditionally publish.
Blog Your Way to a Book Deal
Some say the blog-to-book craze reached its height in 2009, but bloggers continue to land deals and have their books released—possibly more per month now than at that time. Agents and acquisition editors troll the Internet looking for blogs to turn into books because they want to find ideas that are as close to a "sure thing" as possible. A blog with an established readership and a blogger with a built-in platform represents a successfully test marketed book idea.
Rather than just blogging and then repurposing your posts into a book—called booking a blog, learn how to purposefully write, publish, and promote a book on the Internet using blog technology. Blogging a book is the easiest and quickest—and most efficient—way to write a book and promote it at the same time. If you can write, you can blog. That means you can blog your way to creating a successful book—one that attracts readers and publishers.
How to Become an Author of Change
It’s possible that your personal story, life experience or wisdom could form the foundation of a book that inspires change in people’s lives, in organizations or in the world. In this session you will explore the three steps necessary to become an Author of Change: (1) author of change in your life, (2) author of change in the world and (3) author of a change-inspiring book. This session is for you if you feel your writing (or life) has a purpose or mission and you want to find out if you are an Author of Change.
