How to Become a Best-Selling Author and Be Seen as a Go-to Expert Quickly

I’ve attended many trainings & conferences over the years and sometimes I sit in a room where everyone’s asked “who wants to write a book?” or “who has a book in you?”  Each time, I check in with my own desire and think—-nope, not my desire.  And it still isn’t. But as a mentor of 3 days/wk, 6-figure holistic practitioners, it’s my job to share with you the best ways to grow your practices.  And many of you have told me how you really want to write a book.

This, in particular, caught my attention: I started hearing about a guy in a mastermind I’m a part of.  He is a best-selling author himself and has a way of getting authors to the #1 Best-Selling author spot on Amazon, and does it over and over again with other authors. I thought to myself, that’s nice, but I don’t see it as being a priority strategy for many holistic practitioners. If you’re a naturopath, chiropractor, acupuncturist, massage therapist, energy/spiritual healer or health coach, in order to make money from a book, you have to have your act together with the strategy AFTER someone reads your book.

Publishing a book doesn’t always mean your business will automatically boom after that. There are many poor authors and even poor best-selling authors out there. Then I heard him speak.  He talked about how many people have a desire to write books, yet few people either do it or make money from it.  80% want to which is 4 out of 5 people in North America and yet less than 1 in 10,000 ever even get started writing because they just don’t know how. He said it’s true that there are many popular authors who are poor, but that he also had a way of helping people make money from their book quickly.  He had the strategy of the before AND after of writing a book: getting best-selling expert status, and making good money from it.

      • So when is the right time to write a book? 
      • Should you publish your own book? 
      • How do you get to #1 Best-selling author status?
      • How do you make money from your book? 
      • What’s the easiest way to get your book written? (instead of letting it be on your “to-do” list forever) 
      • How long does it realistically take to get a book published & making you money?
