Tips for Writing Great Coaching E-Books

Never understimate the power of a well-written word. Tens of thousands of readers of coaching ebooks have had their lives changed for the better by a well written ebook.

It’s a remarkable medium that you can tap into to coach others day or night, in the city or country, all across the planet. 

Is writing an ebook for you? 

Do you have the answers to a specific problem? Can you research the answers?  Do you have a personal story to tell about overcoming the problem in your own life?

Is there a group of people for whom this problem is universal?  A group of people who wake up in the night in a sweat, wishing, praying and wracking their brains for an answer?

The more they are in need of help, the more likely your ebook can change their lives.

If you think writing an ebook is for you, this is what you need to know:

1. A great ebook is not long.

In fact, the very best ebooks are 10-35 pages long, and no longer.

Why is this? 

The ebook that is short and sweet answers in a laser-like fashion the problem that the reader wants to solve.

It’s the most valuable ebook a client can buy because you have filtered the exact information they most need, and cut out the rest.

Don’t make the mistake of thinking you need 100 pages to call yourself an ebook publisher.  Cut to the chase. 

2. A marketable ebook is very specific.

This goes hand in hand with #1. 

Don’t write ebooks that are general.  They just aren’t marketable and you’ll be in for a heartache.  

The key to marketability is communicating to specific people that your answer is the precise one they need.

3. A great coaching ebook uses a coaching approach.

Take some time as you prepare to write your ebook, and do two things:

Read great ebooks AND transfer what you know works as a coach, and transfer that to your ebook.

As a coach, do you harness the power of the provocative question in your one on one coaching calls? 

Perhaps you have a special ability to see the greater truth in a client’s life? 

Take special note of what makes your coaching exceptional in one mode of delivery and deliberately set out to translate that to the writing you do for your ebook.…

Saving Money Doesn’t Mean Giving Up Quality

America’s mindset today is “the bigger the better.” “The more it costs the more its worth.” “Get it now and pay later.” These ideas are just not smart. Our government is a prime example with our national debt at all-time record high which no one can pay for.

Frugal living doesn’t mean choosing poverty and it certainly doesn’t mean giving up quality. Many millionaires are millionaires not because they became famous or because they inherited money. They are self-made millionaires who worked hard, made sacrifices and chose to spend their money wisely. I am not saying that all of us that work hard, make sacrifices and spend our money wisely will become millionaires but we can certainly live much more comfortable and carefree out from under the stress of owing someone else our paycheck.

Here are somethings you can do to stretch that paycheck:

1. Pay cash. If you can’t pay cash don’t buy it. Stop using those credit cards. Credit cards are a trap. The only way you should use a credit card is if you pay it off in full every month. Otherwise cut it up! Charging something on a credit card and then paying it out over time ends up costing you double sometimes even triple the original cost of the item. You would be better off saving up a couple of months and paying cash then charging it and them trying to pay the credit card off. The interest eats you up.

2. Eat at home. Pack your lunch and take it to work. Eating lunch out everyday cost anywhere from $10-$15 a day. If you pack your lunch, you cut that cost down to about $2-$3 per lunch or even less if you are throwing left overs away at home. That’s a savings of $160-$240 a month. Not to mention, if you cut down the eating out during dinner time and eat at home as a family. That’s additional savings on top of the $200 a month.

3. Compose a budget. Budget your income at the beginning of the each month. Assign a set portion of your income to your major expenses ahead of time. This will help ensure that you don’t waste money. (Major expenses being: Rent/Mortgage, utilities, food, car payment, gas, insurance, savings, misc.) This helps you know what goes where and how much you have left after all is paid so you don’t overspend.

4. Buy used or discounted new. You can get just about anything you need either used or discounted new. You just have to know where to look. Don’t pay full price for anything. Big Lot’s, Ross Dress for Less, Nike Outlet, The Dump, etc. are just examples of stores that you can get discounted new items. These stores have sales and coupons on discounted new items as well. Garage Sales, furniture rent-a-centers, thrift stores and in this day and time the internet is a wonderful resource. eBay is an excellent tool for new and used items. You will …

Personal Growth, The Lotto You Always Win

If my memory serves me correctly I have bought only one Lotto ticket in my entire life and that was for my mother in-law. Even though I have only bought one lotto ticket it does not mean that I have not won the lottery.

I am a student of self help and personal growth and in fact I have won the lottery of life. I for one do not understand why anyone would buy a ticket to win a million dollars when you only have less than a one in one million chance to win the big jackpot.

When you are a life long student of learning in self help and personal growth you are naturally guaranteed to win the lottery of life. When you feed your mind with good information and thoughts you will win any one of, if not all of the following.

1. Better Relationships. The more you bring up your knowledge level and communication skills the better your relationships will be.

2. Better Health. Good health is not just physical but also very much a state of mind. Doctors are treating their patients more and more about how a healthy attitude will make a more healthy body.

3. Make More Money. If you spend even 30 minutes a day on studying ways to improve your financial situation you will within one year have changed your financial situation drastically for the better.

Buying a lotto ticket is nothing more than paying an extra tax because you are stupid. I mean think about it. Who would invest into something with a return on investment with a one in a million chance on any return? Only stupid people do that.

You have no control over the income when you buy a lottery ticket. When you train your mental health through self help and personal development you have a 100{4917788a0bd7aa7369c2a945027b4fe6c9853cda4150a24fe1255b18ce3083dc} assurance that your life will improve in some way.

Think about it if you water and fertilize a garden does not it always grow better 100{4917788a0bd7aa7369c2a945027b4fe6c9853cda4150a24fe1255b18ce3083dc} of the time? It is the same with your mind. Do not be stupid it's just plain and simple too costly for you, your family and society.

Do not be a victim of stupidity but rather be the creator of your destiny. 'What You Focus On Grows'
