Profit Boss® Radio - THE Podcast for Women and Money

Welcome to episode 171 of Profit Boss® Radio! In this episode, we’re talking to you business owners about how you can reap the rewards of your blood, sweat, and tears.  I see so many entrepreneurs attempt to successfully manage their money in business to the detriment of their personal net worth and financial future. It’s very easy to have millions of dollars in revenue slip through your fingers when you fail to capture it, make it yours, and put it in your name.  So, are you ready to make a plan to get what you want, take back your power when it comes to money, and figure out...

Profit Boss® Radio - THE Podcast for Women and Money

In this episode, we’re talking about investing in what is probably the freakiest time period we’ve ever lived through. The markets are just as wild as life right now, and you need to be educated and have a solid investment philosophy you will abide by to avoid getting off-track. The market has been massively positive for owners of US large stocks. The market has not only recovered the 35% lost in March, but gained another 10 to 15%, and has become massively volatile. It’s easy to get emotional, to be ruled by hindsight bias, and to overthink bad decisions. So, are you ready to create a...

167: Hidden Barriers to Your Financial Success show art 167: Hidden Barriers to Your Financial Success

Profit Boss® Radio - THE Podcast for Women and Money

In this episode, we’re talking about overcoming inner barriers. If you “get in our own way” or self-sabotage, it’s not always on you. For centuries, women have been put into positions that force us to play it small and fail to get in touch with our true desires. When it comes to money, having our own income or a life of financial independence was out of the question until just decades ago. We’ve made huge strides, but we still have so much to work through. Today, I’m joined by Dr. Valerie Rein. Valerie has worked with hundreds of high-achieving women and discovered that the issues...

In this episode, we’re talking about how to deal with dementia in our families and in our lives. Dementia is an unfortunate topic that touches many of our lives. When a parent starts to show symptoms of memory loss or erratic behavior, you need to have plans in place, to be able to have difficult conversations, and to be able to take action without getting overwhelmed. However, with the right preparation, you can take a compassionate approach to your parents’ care without straining your relationship or becoming exhausted - and you can take actionable steps right now to know the red flags,...

Profit Boss® Radio - THE Podcast for Women and Money

In this episode, we’re exploring the unexpected ways that aging affects our happiness. If you do a Google search for the word “midlife,” you’ll instantly be greeted by the autofilled word “crisis.” It’s a time when almost everyone asks themselves, “Is this all there is?” and finds themselves facing new challenges, both internally and externally. However, as you’ll hear from my guest today, midlife is also an extraordinary time. It’s a time of lasting friendships, of greater confidence, and of having the wisdom to do remarkable things. With a deeper understanding of where...

In this episode, we’re talking about writing and publishing books.

Almost everyone has a book inside of them waiting to be written. You don’t have to be an entrepreneur who wants to spread your message and grow your empire to write a book, either. You could be a doctor looking to share nutritious recipes you’ve crafted for your patients. You could even have a full-time job and a great career, but want to write the Great American Novel to express your creative energy.

No matter what you write about, you’ll ultimately have to choose how you’re going to share your book with the world. At that point, you’ll have to decide between self-publishing or working with an imprint of a publishing house.

I’ve personally been thinking about writing a book for a very long time. I’ve attended a number of conferences, learned what it’s like to self-publish, and taken a $5,000 course on how to publish traditionally. After doing all of this research, I decided not to write a book at the time, but as my business has grown, I’m actually reconsidering.

What I learned from my experience was this: there’s no 100% right way to go. There’s a lot to learn about both methods, and there’s no clear evidence that one is more profitable than the other. What you can clearly understand, however, is how to plan for what writing your book is going to cost you in terms of money and time.

For today’s episode of Profit Boss® Radio, I’m speaking to two experts on this subject.

First, I’m joined by Julie Broad. Julie is an Amazon Overall #1 bestselling author, an International Book Award Winner, and recipient of the Beverly Hills Book Award for Best Sales Book. Through her company, Book Launchers, she helps entrepreneurs and professionals write, publish, and sell business and brand boosting books without giving up their rights or royalties.

After my conversation with Julie, I’m speaking with Joelle Hann. Joelle is the founder of Brooklyn Book Doctor. She’s ghostwritten, collaborated, edited and developed books with top CEOs and humanitarian activists, coaches and journalists, scholars and entrepreneurs, and many others. Joelle also actively writes and publishes her own work, so she knows what it means to be coached and edited. Her signature program, Book Proposal Academy, helps authors write winning book proposals that help them land agents and get attention from traditional publishing houses.

Both Julie and Joelle are also currently available for consulting, and you’re going to hear an exclusive offer from each of them if you’re ready to bring your book into the world.

So, are you ready to hear all about what it’s really like to publish a book, learn from the experts’ big wins, and find out about the mistakes you need to avoid? Then you don’t want to miss this episode. Tune in to Profit Boss® Radio today!

Here’s what you’ll find out in this week’s episode of Profit Boss® Radio:

  • How to approximate the costs of writing a book - and why not to assume it will ever pay for itself.
  • Why authors need to be thinking like marketers regardless of whether or not they partner with a publisher.
  • Why writers who have had success with traditional publishers are now choosing to self-publish.
  • The difference between self-publishing and hybrid self-publishing - and why Julie isn’t a fan of hybrid.
  • How much you can expect to pay for a highly experienced ghost writer.
  • The difference between a developmental editor, a copy editor, and a proofreader - and why you need all three.
  • How the most successful self-published authors are achieving massive sales numbers - and how Julie’s book, after being rejected by a major publisher, generated six figures in revenue and attracted serious interest from future business partners.
  • The biggest mistakes that self-publishers make and how to avoid them.
  • What expenses to budget for in order to meaningfully launch a self-published book.
  • When you should consider working with a traditional publisher.
  • What traditional publishers are looking for - and why you don’t need to be a celebrity to get a book deal, but you do need to have an extra oomph to get readers excited.
  • The step by step process of getting a literary agent - and what to do if it doesn’t go anywhere.
  • Why the era of the six-figure book deal is over - and the hidden costs that can lead you to spending more than your advance when working with traditional publishers.
  • The main reason that books fall apart - and why brainstorming and outlining your book before you write can save you hours, if not months, of frustration.
  • How one of Joelle’s first-time authors ended up in a five-way bidding war for her book.
