Description

Have you always wanted to write a book for your business, but can never find the time?

Does it feel like an uphill struggle that you just can’t commit to?

Writing a book is the best thing you can do for your business right now, to increase your credibility, get more clients and make more money. And, with the right support and advice, anyone can do it.

The Business Book Course will take you from a blank piece of paper to a 25,000-word book in just 16 weeks.

During the course, we work through the entire process of writing a book, from initial idea to market research, a detailed structure, full contents page, blurb, title and subtitle, editing and design ideas.

The One-Page-a-Day writing schedule is easy to follow and you will have the support of a bestselling business author and a professional editor and author mentor with 14 years’ experience in the publishing industry.

The course includes:

  • 4 group workshops with the course leaders, attended by other industry experts where relevant
  • Weekly emails with helpful tips and advice to help you through the writing process
  • The constant support and accountability of your fellow writers and the course leaders in our private Facebook group
  • Feedback on your work in progress at the start of each workshop
  • An informal evaluation session and celebration at the end of the course

Our promise

By the end of the course you will have a finished book that will not only provide you with a passive income stream, but will position you as an expert in your field and create more clients and customers for your business.

Your promise

To achieve your goal you will need to commit to attending the workshops and to stick to the writing schedule. The One-Page-a-Day schedule is an achievable system based on working 5 days each week for 16 weeks. So you get weekends off J This course does not include a personal copy-editing, design or proofreading service.

The Business Book Course costs £1299 for 4 months.
