What is a collaborative book?

A collaborative book is created when multiple authors work together to share their stories (in this case, each of the 30 authors will write a chapter) and share the expenses related to creating and publishing their multiple-authored book.

How do you benefit from being part of this?

There are many ways you can benefit from being part of this collaborative book:

*Being part of this book will give you the opportunity to share your story in your own dedicated chapter.

*Sharing your story will help your speaking prospects and get you invited to more stages.

*Prospective clients want to hear your story as people do business with people they like and trust.

*You WILL be an Amazon Bestselling Author.

*The process of writing your story will be cathartic – especially if you are like me and have been waiting to share it for years.

*You will be part of an amazing group of women who like you have the courage to share their journey and their inspiration.

As a collaborative book, all authors will share in the production costs and marketing; therefore, maximizing it’s reach to inspire and impact more people.

Please be advised: This opportunity is limited to 29 authors who want to join me in sharing their stories and making a difference in people’s lives.
