Social Innovators and Changemakers: Do you have a book in you that needs to get out in the world?
Do you worry, "What if I die and never wrote my book?" or "What if I never get it done?" Or do you hear an inner voice constantly telling you, "WHO do you think you are?" or "YOU are not an author!"
Sometimes you may even feel afraid you really don't have anything to say, or that what you have to say is stupid, too out there, ornot valuable.
Maybe you feel totally overwhelmed by all the moving parts of creating and publishing a book and all the options and decisions to make.
You wonder how you can ever find the time in your busy life. Yet at a deeper level you know that's just an excuse.
This book so close to your heart... so deep, raw and vulnerable that you don't know what you would do if people didn't like it.
"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” ― Maya Angelou, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings
It's time to get your great work out into the world ...
Imagine what it would be like to FINALLY:
Experience a deep sense of relief at getting your book done
Make the big difference you KNOW you're here to make
Be recognized as a thought leader and expert in your field
Find opportunities opening up for you such as higher paying speaking gigs, amazing new clients interested in your services, or exciting possibilities to travel spreading your message
Have doors open to you for a life of greater creativity, contribution, and freedom to live your many passions
You and I would be a match made in heaven if you:
Have a deeply important book that you are ready to birth
Want to make a bigger impact and go to the next level of your work
March to your own drummer, and have your very special way of looking at things
Are bright, creative and optimistic and at the same time concerned about the future of the planet
Care deeply about your message and feel the knowledge you have can make a big difference in others lives
A little about me:
I'm Katie Curtin, a best-selling author, multi-disciplinary artist, activist and book coach.I believe that we need all the creativity and innovation we can muster to create a more just, sustainable and beautiful world.
I started book coaching as I felt that a book can be an outstanding vehicle for changemakers and social innovators to get their great work out to a broader audience. I know what it's like to have a book inside you and to have massive writer's block, or just never seem to have the time or resources to get it done. Over the years I figured out how to move through these challenges and write the books that I feel called to write.
Yes, the fears and doubts and stumbling blocks still show up, but I've learned how not to let them stop me. More importantly, I've learned how to help others get their deepest work out of their heads and onto the page.
How I can help you:
I can help you every step of the way to get your book created, published and promoted, whether you are still in the idea phase, or have partially written your book and are at a stalemate.
I can guide you with choices about how to create and publish a successful book in today's complex marketplace and have close contacts in the book writing and publishing industry who I draw on, depending on your needs.
My strengths include helping you reach crystal clarity about your book's message, create a clear structure for your book, and design accountability structures that work for you, as well as to clear any internal blocks to greater visibility and success.
I have an outside the box approach, which means all the work I do with you is uniquely tailored to who you are and what works best for you.
I would adore working with you if:
- you are creative and innovative, and have many talents, passions and interests - you like to do things "outside the box," and are not afraid to "rock the boat" - you are an action-taker who is deeply committed to making a difference - you love the arts, adventure, travel, farmers markets, sustainable living, bookstores and good conversations
