We start the year with a focus on your calling and keynote. Create and deliver a 40 minute talk adaptable for three different audiences. Polish and present a twenty minute version on camera and in front of a live audience. Create a micro Petcha Kucha (20 slides x 20 seconds) from the same material. KEY TAKE AWAY: DEMO REEL & SPEAKER PACKAGE


Write your book from first draft to publish ready (approx. 5 drafts). Using writing prompts, research assignments, one on one coaching and an ongoing author's writing group, your 50,000-90,000 word manuscript will get done. Writing Coaches TinaO and Meribeth Deen follow a three act structure, key turning points, and help you write into the voice of your calling and message. KEY TAKE AWAYS: PUBLISH READY WITH PROCESS & PITCH PACKAGE


The final three months of the program see you take your calling, keynote and book and bring them all together into a revenue generating suite of programs for three unique audiences. This is where you leverage all of your work into an offering that creates residual income for you. KEY TAKE AWAY: SUITE OF ONLINE PROGRAMS (or creative offering) for each demographic within your target audience.
