Author Business Planning

I offer a number of creative business planning tools for indie authors, tools that bring authors through a proven sequence of success.

Creative business planning is not just business as usual. So much business advice is mechanical and one-dimensional and purely profit-driven. Your business is also (perhaps primarily) driven by your passion as an author, your sense of mission and purpose, as much as a profit motive.

  • You are motivated by money and meaning. Your business planning must allow for that.
  • And every working creative knows that rest and play are not breaks from the process, they are the process. A creative business plan must account for creative rest and creative play as well as work.
  • Your plan must also be flexible enough to allow for intuition, spontaneous insights, inspired deviations, and taking the road less traveled.

Creative Business Planning for Authors: Monthly Membership

My premium option is a planning membership that includes downloadable resources and planners, a mid-month motivator and a Facebook group for accountability and support and a small-group monthly live workshop.

The workshops run on zoom but these are not large-scale webinars. Places are limited so personal attention is assured.

Sign up to this monthly membership on my Patreon page — you can unsubscribe after a single workshop or any time you want.
