Unleash Your Inner Author Coaching Programs

Make an Impact – Fulfill Your Dream of being an author

Your book helps you unleash the power of your unique story to build your business, grow your tribe, and expand your impact. Being a published author establishes your credibility and gives you a bigger platform to spread your message and make a difference.

Writing can be a solitary endeavor, so working with us is a gift you give yourself.  You get the knowledge, support and accountability you need with an experienced mentor who helps you navigate the path. One author recently summed it up: "Writing my book has become a journey of self-discovery." This journey includes finding your voice, your courage, and the power to inspire your readers. The result is a professional-quality book that you are so proud of, you want everyone to have a copy!

Coaching you on every step of the journey

Our discussions include discovering where you are and what your goals are, what challenges you face, working through fears, celebrating successes, and exchanging ideas to complete and successfully launch your book.

In between meetings, feel free to contact your coach for questions. We want to make sure that you never get stuck or wait until the next session to reach out for help. Your success is the goal! (For more information, see UYIA FAQs.)
