If you have been wondering how long it takes to become an author, let me share with you what is an ideal timeline.

Now, before I tell you the exact timeline, let me give you a disclaimer. 

There is actually no such thing as an exact timeline. Based on my experience working with hundreds of authors, I kind of arrived at an average time period that I believe one should allocate for their book project.

Firstly, it depends on where you are at right now. Have you already finished writing your book? Are you still in the early stages? It obviously depends on that.

It also depends on how much of your attention you can give to this book project. If you can channel your focus mainly on your book project, then the time period will be much lesser.

Having a book does not guarantee clients for your business but having an author funnel does guarantee that! 

Let’s look at the 4-Step Author Funnel system that I teach my students in the Author Success Academy.

Most writers worry if their book can convert readers into their clients. This could mainly be because they might have missed one or two important steps from the Author Funnel. 

Now, let me first explain what these steps are and how you can start building them one after the other.

​ Would you like to learn the daily habits of successful authors?

Let us take a look at what are some of the daily habits that most successful authors follow.

I am a huge believer in daily rituals and habits and I believe that what we do on a daily basis is the sum total which reflects the quality of our overall life.

Daily Rituals also apply to book writing since the overall quality of your book will be determined by the quality of your daily rituals.

Today, I will be sharing with you 5 daily habits of successful authors.

Why your book will never bring you clients?

If you think you’re going to magically convert all your readers into your clients for your business, then I’m sorry, you’re mistaken.

That is never going to happen unless you follow the two methods that I’m going to be sharing with you today.

I see a lot of authors complain that although they’ve written the book, published it, and marketed it well, and even went on to become a best-seller, it’s just not generating leads for their business!

Now, who do you think is to blame for this? Definitely not your readers!

Have you been aspiring to write your book for a very long time?

Do you want to turn on your “Author Switch” that will move you from an aspiring author to a serial author?

In my academy, there is this one principle I teach which I call “Turning On your Author Switch”, and it has produced fantastic results for my students.

Today I will share this concept with you so that you can also turn on your Author Switch and get into Action Mode.

Are you a coach who’s thinking of giving away all the good stuff you teach in your book?

Why establish your purpose for writing a book?

Welcome to Author Success Stories!

Today's very special guest is Kelsey Smith!

We helped Kelsey publish her book in 2018 and it's so amazing to reconnect with her after a couple of years!

Kelsey was born and raised in Colorado. She is incredibly grateful to call the beautiful state of Colorado her home.

Outside of teaching, Kelsey has a passion for the nonprofit world and serves on the Board of Directors for two amazing organizations within Colorado.

In September 2018, Kelsey published her first book titled, This is Me! My Journey with Turner Syndrome. Her book shares the journey she has been on since learning about her diagnosis of Mosaic Turner syndrome at the age of 16. Events that took place in her life starting in December 2017 inspired the book.

She is thrilled to be sharing her Turner syndrome story through writing.

In this episode, Kelsey talks about Turner syndrome, her turning point in sharing her story, and how establishing her purpose for writing helped her finish her book!

Let us explore a little bit about this concept of leaving behind a legacy.

Have you ever thought of what your legacy is going to be like?

I know that at some point in your life, you had.

In fact, most human beings have this inherent urge to leave something behind mainly because we understand that human life is not permanent.

Nothing is permanent!

Once we understand the very temporary nature of human life and realize that we are not going to be on this planet for long, it creates the urge to be wanted to be remembered when we pass away.

Because of this understanding, we want to leave behind some trace of our life that can be relevant to the generations that will come after us.

I believe this is where our need to leave a legacy stems from.

Now, let's talk about some of the common ways some people do in order to leave a legacy.
