Write a Book to Grow Your Business in 2023

Join this 9 day free training and walk step by step through everything you need to know to write

your book.


Starts December 1st!


It's your year...and your book is waiting to be written.

But where do you start?

How do you create a first page that immediately captures your reader's attention? How do you write a book with a strong enough message or story line?  How do you structure a nonfiction story?


How do you make your book successful?


These are questions I had too. 

So I got to work soaking up as much knowledge as I could from every industry expert I could find. I consumed blogs, podcasts, free & paid content and gained even more tips & tricks through my own experiences.

Now I'm ready to share it all with you so that you can finally write the book that's been sitting inside of you all along.


Write a Book to Grow
Your Business

In this free 8 day training, you'll learn how to avoid writer's block, complete a polished final draft manuscript and have the confidence to pitch to publishers.

The Schedule

This training will take place over Zoom for the course of nine days. Each day, you'll be able to participate in a 30 minute webinar & training covering varying topics relevant to writing your story and becoming an author. See below for the content we'll cover.

Sessions Daily at 12 PM CST from 12/1-12/8


Getting In The Writer's Mindset


Writers dream of becoming an author, but don't succeed. Why? The fundamental reason is they do not have the right Mindset.

In this session, I'm going to tackle challenges we face as first-time writers.


You'll learn:

  • What gives you the power to become an author

  • 7 Different Strategies to get in the right MINDSET

  • How to move forward without burning out. 


Goal Setting Your Story


Writers often quit before they start because of lack of time. We all have priorities in our life, so how do we add a big project into our schedule?

In this session, you'll learn:

  • How long it takes to write your story

  • How to set realistic goals in a busy schedule

  • How to see results without getting burned out in the process


Starting Your Story


Writers often get stuck on how to start a story.  I'm going to take you through an easy way to get your book started.

In this session, you'll learn:

  • What stories MUST have to be successful

  • Strategies to start your story and construct your main message

  • How to write a story that readers can get hooked into and convert them to clients


Hooking the Reader


Writers often tell me "I don't know if anyone will want to read what I write." It's a common "lack of confidence" challenge that people face. This session will focus on making your story compelling to the reader.

In this session, you'll learn:

  • How to hook the readers into your story from the first line

  • Strategies that first-time authors MUST know to keep the reader engaged

  • Tools to ensure your book has reader buy-in


From the Author Perspective


Authors that have worked with Dream To Author have seen the challenges and had their own "Aha" moments. Learn what they did to publish their first book successfully.

In this session, you'll discover:

  • What authors have been challenged with in their own project

  • How they became successful and what you can do to achieve this goal

  • The secrets that authors wish they would have known writing their first book


Making Successful Authors

If you're ready to become an author, get someone in your corner. Every first-time writer faces challenges they don't know or understand. Dream to Author has been helping writers through this for years.

In this session, you'll discover:

  • How to write a book and publish with confidence.

  • How successful authors use a book to grow their business.

  • What the Author Creation Project is all about and get a special BONUS.



What Holds Writers Back

Writers often experience hesitation about writing a book and getting help. We'll address apprehension and talk about accountability that produces results.

In this session, you'll hear:

  • Directly from experts that break down the barriers of doubt

  • How to be a committed writer

  • Hear how to determine your return on investment



What Publishers Look For

Writers often get tripped up on the publishing process, especially because it's changed so much the last few years. Hear from publishers the trends they are seeing and what their expectations are for first-time writers.

In this session, you'll learn:

  • What first-time authors MUST know when submitting to publishers

  • What publishers look for in their authors

  • How to determine your path to publishing your book
