3 Steps to Master your Non-fiction Writing to Increase your Coaching Business
I will be teaching you my top tips on how to write a fabulous non-fiction book so that you can upsell your coaching services. 

In order to write a great book you need to master:-

Step 1 – Master your Mind

This step will consistently hold you back and you will be always saying “some day I will write my book”. By mastering this step you will:-

·        Help you with your motivation to keep going

·        Stay out of writer’s block 

·        Manage your self-talk and ego about not being good enough

·        Eradicate your beliefs around writing

·        Be confident in your own voice

Step 2 – Master your Reader

This is a step that most writers do not consider until the editing stage. This is the most common error I see from manuscripts. Although it is your story, it is not about you, it is all about the reader. By mastering this step you will:-

·        Stop you writing irrelevant material and save you time

·        Keep you out of overwhelm and writer’s block

·        Keep you from saying “I don’t know what to write”

·        Helps with your motivation to keep writing

·        The reader will feel that you know them and will gain trust immediately

Step 3 – Master your Structure

Another common mistake that I see is that writers have a great story to tell and share but they haven’t been structured enough and is all over the place. By mastering this step it will:-

·        Help you to remain focused on your writing

·        Help you to have a plan 

·        Stops yours confusion in what comes next and what to write

·        Keep you on track

·        Give you confidence that you will be able to upsell your services

These 3 steps are very important and most writers do not know they exist. This will give you the edge over all the self-development books out there and makes you have a stronger and more powerful book. Also by mastering these 3 steps you will also know how to market your book and what audience you need to be in front in selling your book and services before you even start writing.
