As your coach, I will be your point person from start to finish when you entrust Selah Press with your work. You need a coach who has played the game of business and publishing successfully. You need someone on your team who continues to have hands on experience as an author, business owner and publisher. I’ve published my own books at the pace of the energizer bunny and will continue long into the future. I’ve also had more than 15 years of profitable experience as an author-preneur. You can read more about how I’ve incorporated my love of writing into my business and life adventures here.
In 1998, I co-founded Essential Wholesale which was listed as an INC Magazine 5000 Fastest Growing Companies in America three years in a row. I started Essential Wholesale in my kitchen with a $50 investment. My husband and I sold the company for millions in 2011. Through Essential Wholesale, private consultations, publications and public speaking, I have literally been involved in thousands of businesses. The root of Essential Wholesale’s success was its involvement in helping other small business owners succeed. Through Selah Press and Selah Press Coaching, I look forward to replicating this model in which my success is fully dependent on your success as authors and business owners.
I haven’t held a traditional job since 1997. Not every business idea has been a success, but every one of them taught me several worthwhile lessons. My coaching experience comes from what I learned in my own business failures and successes—not from a textbook.
I started writing at the age of twelve, and was first published at sixteen. Since then—for more than 25 years, I have incorporated my love for writing into my business adventures. I have used the power of the written word, education, and the Internet to help build successful businesses from the ground up since 1998. I have been a faithful and regular blogger since 2005. Since 2011, I have written and published nine books.
Wherever you are in the process of writing and publishing a book, I have been there and done that. Wherever you are in your writing journey, I can guide you to the finish line. If you need a cheerleader, nag, task-master or coach, I have you covered. My experience can help navigate you through the process including setting up an author platform, writing your book, setting yourself up in business and more.
Writing and publishing a book is very doable. It isn’t easy, but it is possible. If you can commit to doing the work it takes to do the writing, I will commit to pushing you over the finish line. I will work with you as a book coach, business coach and development editor. When we reach the next step together, a hand-picked team of copyeditors, proofreaders and designers will help turn your dream into a reality. I can either help you self-publish, or if you don’t want to take the hands-on approach to self-publishing, my publishing company, Selah Press, can take care of all of the nitty gritty work for you.
