Dreaming of writing a book but don’t know where you to start? A book is an excellent method to share your message, showcase your expertise and sell your products or services. You can write your own book, even if you’re not a writer. I teach you how to find your voice and share it with the world. You can do it alone or you can do it with support and guidance. Which sounds like more fun to you?
Is an Author Coach Right For You?
It can be very challenging to find a coach that works well for you, your style and your dreams. Some of it is budget, but also it needs to suit both your personality styles.
Questions to Ask Before Hiring Someone
Do you like the personality of the coach? Does it match with your style?
Ensure your personalities are a good match. It’s a very personal experience; it’s important to feel safe and comfortable with your coach.
Can I interview the prospective coach first?
Yes, always set up an interview with your prospective coach. Do not pay for this session. But, do not expect free advice. You’re interviewing them to make sure you’re going to work well together. Book your free coaching interview with Michelle here.
What is their coaching style?
Ask how they will work with you, what is their style? Are they straight-forward, yet still make you feel safe and comfortable?
What can you expect from each session?
Ask how long the sessions will be and how the conversations typically go. Also, ask how often you will meet and if there will be any contact between sessions.
What kind of tasks will you be asked to do?
Typically, each coach has methods already established to get you where you need to go. Find out if they will give you homework and what that usually looks like for a coaching session.
How will they hold you accountable?
What expectations do you have as a client and for your coach to stay accountable for your on-going work with the coach.

I just want to tell you what a great thing has happened to me with the mentoring with Michelle. I have had many, many ideas, many things I’ve wanted to do, but lack the focus to do that. And by having a weekly session with Michelle Forsyth, it has brought me into focus, keeping track of what I’m doing, being accountable to her and to myself really. But isn’t it funny that reporting to somebody else makes us more accountable? I’ve made some good progress in the four weeks that we’ve been doing and I’m really looking forward to moving on with this, continuing to have our sessions until I complete the first project that we have we are working on. She asked me what was the most important and I chose working on my book. So we are focusing on that. I am working towards it every day. Well, almost every day. It’s very interesting to me that discipline is easier. self-discipline is easier when you’ve got a partner or an accountability person. And to find somebody that is as interested in what you’re doing as you are, is nearly impossible in just friendships and associations in that way. So it has been money well spent to address this with Michelle, to have her input and her workbook worksheets and work things that say, okay, where are you going and how are you getting there on paper? So I highly recommend Michelle Forsyth in her mentoring program.
