Individual coaching by phone:
We would love to help you one-on-one so you can capture your story yourself. This is perfect if you have the spark to write, but would like to collaborate on getting organized, storyboarding your tale, or handling technology. We sometimes help a client with just one session, or your can purchase a package at a discounted rate. In some cases cases, we act as collaborators through the whole process of writing and publishing a book. Let’s face it, writing a book is hard work, and you may need some help to keep you on track throughout the process, while still maintaining control.
