I've been working with authors for a couple of years now and what they most enjoy is the structure that I bring to their lives, while respecting their creative endeavors. I help them understand that they can turn their creative work into a business that can provide an income.
I show them how an idea can be turned into a book, a blog, or a course, among many other options. Each of those, then, becomes an income stream, thus turning authors into entrepreneurs. This business model is ideal for those who want to create and generate income while still enjoying a flexible lifestyle that allows them to take on creative endeavors, travel, spend time with family, or any other activity that requires being away from the "office." Said "office" can be within four walls, a virtual office, an online business, or a home office.
My success is based on my ability to respect creativity and yet provide structure in the form of deadlines, action plans, and results. Oftentimes, I have compared myself to a child flying a kite. While the child is having fun, she is also providing direction to that kite and ensuring a safe landing instead of allowing the kite to get lost in the wind. I am that child. And the author is the kite. With grounded feet, I allow the kite/author to fly, have fun, be creative, but I also ensure a safe landing. That "safe landing" is the business end of creative work. Meaning, that after authors have created beautiful texts in the midst of the blowing wind, they must land their work safely in the form of some sort of product to sell, for example, a book or a course, so that they will have an income that will allow them to continue flying, traveling, creating, and living.
Therefore, I can help with that. If you want to devote your time to your creativity and have someone else help you develop the business side of it, email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll be more than happy to help!
