Health & Wellness Book: Author, Who Me?
Have you considered how your business could grow if you were to author a health and wellness book?
How would your published health and wellness book change your life?
Imagine how many more people you could help, the confidence you would feel and how amazing it would be to be recognized as an authority with your very own health and wellness book.
What most people don’t realize is that writing a book changes you – empowers you…at least that’s what author of 44 books, Lynda Goldman from www.WellnessInk.com says.
I interviewed Lynda Goldman, author of “Write to Heal: 7 Steps to Write and Publish a Wellness Book that Heals More People, Makes You the Authority and Leaves Your Legacy.”
During our talk, she spilled the beans on powerful secrets about how to author a book. I’m sharing the interview with you, because she is amazing and makes it easy to capture your ideas and organize them.
If you knew me a little better you would know organizing a book is nearly an impossible feat for me.
Tons of ideas, stories…where do they go, how do I educate and not jump all over the place. Great in person, but writing a whole book – YIKES!
Can you relate?
PLUS: she’s giving us incredibly generous templates and roadmaps to quickly get your work out there! You can join her mission to heal more lives here: http://www.wellnessink.com/free-roadmap/.
Here’s the thing: I was struggling to organize my book for 8 years. Thirty minutes after reading her book, I had an outline that organized millions of ideas into a clear picture! Thanks to Lynda I have the structure to finally pull all the pieces so I can finally author my first book!
Should You Author a Book That Solves Everything?
Surprise, just like you I have more than one book in me – Lynda cautions wellness entrepreneurs not to try to write a be all end all book – whoops that’s exactly what had me hamstrung!

Wellness Coaches Work Hard to Find Clients
If you’re like the wellness coaches I work with, you work HARD.
In fact, sometimes you work harder than you need to…
But how’s a girl supposed to attract clients & create consistent paydays, right?
It can all feel so big and super stressful.
I remember working 12 + hours a day to try to find clients and serve them. Of course, the biggest time suck…drum roll please – marketing.
The truth is that it actually takes less work and more business strategy to create a dream business that supports you and your goals.
But doesn’t your mind just wobble with all the information out there?
It’s easy to lose your inner compass when you’re on overload.
That’s why I wanted to extend a helping hand to you.
How Wellness Coaches CAN Make More Money
While you’re thinking about what you want to achieve this year, think BIG.
You…with a life, clients and the money to go with it.
It’s a yummy way to live and you deserve it.
Here’s the thing…
The only way to have a NEW year is to be a new you.
Don’t worry – no overhaul – the opposite in fact.
I’m just talking about gathering up your scattered pieces and steeping yourself in wise women wisdom from wellness coaches who are already achieving their business goals.
I’ve collected these 15 powerful nuggets of wisdom from my clients this past year.
It’s a short guide, so you can laser focus on the keys to finding clients and making a much better income.
- Take stock and write down where your business is and where you said it would be.
- Be aware of where you made progress and congratulate yourself OFTEN (because your mind needs to learn to see and receive success energy as much as you need oxygen to live).
- Give thanks for your clients and the income you already have…no matter how far along you are.
- Ask God, the Universe for what you want & give thanks as if it’s already happened (energy and faith are the catalysts).
- Recognize you can’t do it alone. No one can. Not even the most amazing wellness entrepreneurs OR even Superwoman (if you saw her last movie, you know what I mean!)
- Laugh in the face of defeating patterns and kiss their butts goodbye…like marketing to “everyone.” That costs you too much and keeps you from showing up powerfully.
- Choose to take action that will grow your income and align with your spirit (hint: stop doing marketing methods that aren’t fun for YOU).
- Nurture your intuition and be the leader your business needs: Choose to ground your business in a profitable niche so you can serve the people you were born to.
- Clean up your workspace and clear your mind. Ahh that’s good medicine!
- Listen deeply to your ideal audience. Create what they want first…then give them what they need.
- Get the attention of LOTS of high-quality prospective clients, so you can earn well. Want to discover how to break the client attraction code once and for all?

It’s Free. It’s empowering!
- FOCUS on ONE group of people and solve ONE problem for them…yes I went there – “niche to get rich” works like a charm but those of us who are heart-centered entrepreneurs fight it as if our lives depended on it.
- I was stuck at this impasse for 4 years. It’s one of the BIGGEST money mindset areas I help my clients overcome, because this move led me to create consistent 5 figure months that set my mind at ease.
- Stop chasing millions of strategies and invest in REAL coaching so you can align all the pieces into a cohesive client attraction method that suits your soul.
- ACCELERATE your success by getting right with your money relationship so those limiting beliefs can stop short-changing your success.
Get consistent support to take clear and decisive actions based on the best revenue roadmap for YOUR business and ideal lifestyle.
Most coaches and entrepreneurs try to “get there” but “there” never comes. You have to reverse engineer your business to support your ideal lifestyle from step one! Sounds crazy, but Steven Covey had it right: “Begin With The End in Mind,” then reverse engineer it.
Energy before action is the key.

Could a Nurse Health Coach Get Psyched About THIS?
“Did you passionately set out to create an email list or did you passionately set out to change lives and create a nice life for yourself as a nurse health coach?
Yep, I’m with you.
When I transitioned from therapist/business manager to my own online business, I was dead set on helping wellness pros have happier, healthier and wealthier lives.
I had spent the last 15 years coaching, training and leading talented coaches, therapists, nurses and they were seriously struggling financially in their side coaching businesses.
Lots of websites but not many clients.
I went through the same thing, but thankfully a huge breakthrough turned my business and life around after I thought all was lost. So here’s what my colleagues and I know about why you don’t need an email list to generate fast income as a nurse health coach.
Reason #1: A Nurse Health Coach Can Get Paid Faster
What’s the thinking behind email lists?
Build relationships with people. And an email list works over time IF you have your marketing messages, programs and website targeted to your ultimate niche market.
But you also need cash now, right?
…as it turned out I discovered I could get faster client sign-ups while my email list was growing by doing outbound relationship building.
I still get goosebumps when I think back to the first month I generated
$10,800 WITHOUT an email list.
Believe me, if you’re in shock, I get it. So was I! Jaw to floor stunned into silence.
If you could use even half that a month in your business, read the full post to find out how I did it.
Reason #2: Building an Email List Can Be Costly For a Heart-Centered Nurse Health Coach
What happened early in my online business is that I spent thousands of dollars and years chasing the ELUSIVE email list and getting my website and the free gift right…
I spent tons of time on blogging for my website. I knew it would bring site visitors if I did all the SEO stuff right and the goal was for them to get my free gift and sign up for my email list.
One problem though…It was SLOW. Excuse me – slower than a turtle with his brakes on.
Like most of the clients who come to me, I spent all my money on my website and on multiple marketing programs thinking I would SAVE money and figure out how to put the pieces together on my own without mentoring.
After all, I had already designed and implemented a couple of 200K and 500K businesses, how hard could the online stuff be?
OMG – I was in for a super rude awakening. It was 2005 and I didn’t know the backend of a website, professional copywriting or email marketing funnels from a hole in the ground. I didn’t have a fighting chance at email list marketing.
So, if this is where you’re at…I get it wholeheartedly.
The cost of doing web-based marketing is financial and emotional as you’re a skilled nurse, not a niche marketing expert, professional copywriter, landing page pro or traffic specialist.
It took me years of advanced training to learn these skills, but the market has changed and people want more LIVE and video marketing action to make real life relationships instead of flat words on a page to engage them.
Do you feel like you’re losing your mind marketing your business? Check out this blog post: Is Marketing Your “Holistic Healing” Business Driving You Crazy?
Reason #3: Are You a Nurse Health Coach Eager to Have Fun Creating Instant Relationships?
Yep. You better believe it!
Finally, you can create more income by having fun interacting with real people instead of relying only on passive emails do your relationship building for you.
By joining targeted Facebook Groups where your ultimate clients are already hanging out and looking for help.
Most people think Facebook Likes are important.
Likes don’t engage people. If you spend your marketing dollars building a following of “likes” you’ll miss the real beauty of social media – creating and nurturing long-term relationships with people who want what you have and people who are great referral sources for you.
As a busy nurse health coach, you don’t have time to do all the marketing monkey business and divide your time between your business and professional position…
After all, your REAL goal is to exit the bureaucracy once and for all, right?
When you spend time interacting with real people in practically real time and delivering real value, you build credibility and become attractive to group members looking for a direction.
Plus it’s really rewarding and great fun to interact with people instead of waiting passively for people to sign up for your email list. Don’t get me wrong an email list is fantastic, but when you need income in your health coach business now, you’ve got to flow with the energy!
As a Nurse Health Coach you can create instant rapport and take the conversation into private messages where you can pace and stage a beautiful new relationship based on mutual trust and commonality.
So, by all means, stop spending all your time tweaking your site, free gift, and email funnel. That’s not where the real people hang out. It will cost you dearly to stay glued to that approach.
But it’s tempting because it keeps you busy and behind the scenes.
Time to stop hiding and let your light out in a big way.
If you’re a “nurse health coach” or wellness entrepreneur, you can generate 3-5 enrollment sessions by the end of this week with this highly effective approach.

Health Coaching Business: Evolving Like the Seasons
Each Spring my business & I go through a rebirth and so do the health coaching businesses I serve.
It never fails, because that’s how my spirit rolls. Like a caterpillar emerging from a cocoon, there’s a quickening that bubbles up from the deep and we feel called to rise higher than we have before…and it pushes our edges and comfort zones in a big way.
What about you?
Are you ready to rise up and break out of your “health coaching business” cocoon and don new wings?
If so, you’re right where you need to be, because we all need help transitioning from slow to grow. In fact, I wrote a Spring Rebirth poem back in March 2011 and it just resurfaced.
You know, emergence is just as tough for us as it is for the Daffodil peeking out to see if it’s safe to go full bloom in the early Spring season.
Becoming highly visible in your health coaching business feels risky, because it stirs up all of the inner barriers and voices that say:
“You’ll never amount to anything. Who are you to charge money for these services? Who are you to offering coaching and healing services? What if they judge me? No one wants to pay for these kind of services.”
What Will Be Born In Your Health Coaching Business This Spring?
I get it. When I started my initial coaching business it was pretty scary and I was flooded with self-doubt and fears that were so overpowering.
But new gifts emerge in the midst of struggle. Back in the Winter of 2010/2011 when I almost gave up on my dream, this poem flowed through me and onto the paper.
I hope it inspires you to honor your journey and to “listen” and “watch” for what’s being born in your healing & coaching business.
“Beneath heavy fall leaves
Accumulating layers of winter’s piercing cold snow
I slipped into a deep state of mourning
While winds swept across me
Racing their way to the ends of the earth.
For a long time I braced myself against them
They threatened my familiar landscape
Then slowly but not easily,
Parts of me started to give way and surrender
It was a deep, deep descent
The Hand of Life flowed over me like a great river
and it made me “own” my limiting beliefs
As if I swallowed them whole
Before freezing into a solid river of ice.
Until at last the leaves, snow, ice and winds became me.
As I lay still and quiet
Below the level of conscious awareness
Pieces of me began shifting and forming
Into mysterious colorful collages and shapes
While tiny melting trickles flitted across my frozen wings…
Water crystal possibilities
Glimmered beneath my surface in the pre-dawn of Spring.
Yet again, I pushed against it.
How I now longed to just lie still beneath the safe blankets
And not be pulled back into the busy dance again
Still dreaming and dozing in the Netherland folds between worlds
I resisted the process of Life carving and widening my parameters into the unknown.
Yet my ears could not help but hear whispers…
A crackling in the inner sanctuary of my soul,
A charging of each cell with fresh new baby green
Foretelling a gathering of all my discordant pieces into a solid whole.
Slowly my eyes started to open absorbing flickering sunlight
And my chest rose higher with each breath
While my body swirled as if in a primal vortex
Transfusing dark, rich nourishing blood from the tips of my deepened roots.
Like a great ancient stalk of maize
I witnessed that I was silently growing roots downward first
Before winding, reaching and emerging new from the dark rich soil of earth
Dripping with unfamiliarity and intrigue.
What would I become this time?
What new senses would reveal themselves
After looking through brand new eyes
Having been reclaimed, ignited and resurrected?
Would there be nuances that showed up in my mirror or that only others could see and report back to me?
Would I hear myself speaking things that
Had not ever occurred to me before?
Would the trees, ocean and stars whisper through my heart
Beating with love and reverence for all people and events no matter what their appearance?
What would the Hand of Life
Paint across my canvas this time around?
As I wondered, I knelt in my heart
Seeds had long ago been planted
In the “garden of my soul”
Waiting for the courage to say YES!
Show me my life
Broaden my reach
Extend my wings
I am willing and ready
To be reborn once again this Spring.”
If You’ve Been on The Brink of Giving Up on Your Health Coaching Business…
…Because of lack of clients, money, time you’re right on the brink of a healing health coaching business breakthrough.
I want to encourage you to stay the course and OPEN to what’s emerging, so you don’t miss what you’re being asked to reconcile during this powerful right of passage.
As for me, back in Spring of 2011 I was walking between 2 worlds…
- One foot in the world of “meant to be” that encouraged me to accept the struggles as final until a “sign” showed up to release me
- The other foot in the world of “I’m a collaborator with Life” that encouraged me to recognize my struggles were based on my own fears and limits and had nothing to do with what God/Spirit had planned for me
For those of us who are spiritually passionate, categorizing business obstacles as “meant to be” can keep us from creating our lives and upgrading our healing & “health coaching business” skills.
My breakthrough came after I channeled this poem and started partnering with solid heart-based mentors to help me cultivate new skills instead of trying to do everything on my own.
It turns out that trying to grow a business alone or from a program isn’t the best method for those of us who learn and grow through relationships.
Get the support you need to grow your skills, so you don’t mistake a solvable problem for “meant to be.”
