Book a VIP Day: Get That Fall Magic Working for Your Book

Working on Teri’s book concept during her VIP Day.

Years ago, Teri Cavanagh drove from Cape Cod to Wakefield, Rhode Island for a workshop I was giving on Writing in the Zone (or was it Jump Start Your Book). She left with the promise she’d be back one day to write her book.

Just when she thought the time had come, an incredible job opportunity came her way and she had to put the book aside.
This fall, though, the time for her book truly had arrived. She’d cleared her plate and ordered a “she shed” to create a special place to write her book. And she signed up for a VIP day to get clear on the book concept, structure, title and…well…I’ll let her tell it. Suffice it to say, I think I enjoyed our VIP Day as much as Teri.

What Teri Said About Her Book Writing VIP Day

 “I knew I needed my VIP meeting DAY with Lisa when I realized I was just going in circles not getting my dream of writing my book started. I discovered being my own coach was not a winning formula at all.

“I wanted to find a title for my book as well as have Lisa provide me with structure for content, edit my writing a bit and provide advice on the marketing ideas.

“We accomplished so much on my special VIP day.  I overcame challenges and concerns about finding the right title. Our brainstorming session was so much fun exploring creative avenues. We landed on exactly the right title and subtitle to capture the promise and intention of why I wanted to write this book.
“Lisa’s ‘meet my muse’ exercise, brought new and exciting insight for how I might develop each chapter, allowing for more spontaneity  for my  stories. Lisa’s keen editing has definitely brought  my sample chapters to life for my readers, as well as tightened up my writing for greater impact.

“My next round of writing will definitely yield better results now that I know  how to bring it to life for my readers, how to tighten the writing and much more.

“I can’t say enough about my day:the return on my investment in myself, the value I received from my expert coach, Lisa.  The special extras of a brainstorming walk in nature, a wholesome lunch and sitting on her lovely deck while working together made my day a WOW!!”

This time of year can also be a wonderful time to work on your book. When it gets colder (at least here in the Northeast), we often turn inward and plant the seeds for our creative projects.

Lissa Wheeler’s VIP Day Was Instrumental In Completing and Publishing Her Book

Here’s an example of another VIP day from a few years ago with Lissa Wheeler, whose book, Engaging Resilience, became an Amazon Bestseller with all five star reviews (15 of them so far!). In just one day, Lissa and I:

– Polished her manuscript

– Planned her strategy for platform building

– Created a break through on a particular challenge

– Reconnected Lissa with her confidence and passion

– Helped Lissa commit to her next steps in a way that felt do-able,  enjoyable and sustainable, rather than pushing herself.

We paced ourselves with a walk around Saunderstown enjoying the gardens, the beach and Narragansett Bay while we brainstormed about a couple of a challenges and helped her get unstuck about a particular issue, coming up with a plan that created ease and calm where there had been fear.

She left refreshed, reignited, with very clear plans, including the revisions to make to her manuscript.

What Lissa Says About Her VIP Day

“My VIP Day with Lisa Tener addressed my biggest challenges, created breakthroughs with several issues that had been blocking my path and helped me get a huge chunk of work done in one day.

“As a complete novice in writing. Lisa’s Bring Your Book to Life® Program gave me confidence that I could write a book.

“As my next step, I brought my first draft to my VIP Day, where Lisa helped me understand the big picture, the changes needed to make my book easy—and a pleasure—for the reader.

“In our VIP Day, Lisa also introduced me to the marketing process and educated me to build my website and reach potential readers.

“I left with  a much clearer idea of editing and how to make the information accessible, effortless to read.

“I love how Lisa paced the day. We started with editing. After, we took a walk— which was such a pleasure—and explored my personal issues with writing—where I lacked confidence, fear of being seen and fear of success.

“Our conversation helped me feel less intimidated and made the next steps feel do-able.

“After a delicious lunch we looked at the marketing aspects. Lisa educated me about my website, as well as social media, which always intimidated me. She showed me how it can be a useful and friendly tool.

“Lisa helped me honor my own pacing.

“It was a lot of fun. I left with a clear plan of my next steps and dates and a feeling that ‘this is going to happen for me.’

“And it did! My book, Engaging Resilience, became an Amazon Bestseller and is now making a difference in people’s lives.

“Publishing my book has brought in new clients from unexpected sources, which is fun. My dream is to educate the larger bodywork community about the trauma work described in my book. Becoming a published author has started to open those doors as I connect with people in my field who can help me make that happen.”
