#var:page_name# cover

This is a class co-sponsored by MI and San Francisco Writers Conference/San Francisco Writers Foundation.

It's one thing to write a book. It's another thing to turn it into a full or part-time career where you're earning a good living getting paid to do work you love. In this highly interactive workshop, you 'll learn exactly what to do to:

turn your book into a conference keynote, TEDx talk or online workshop
format your knowledge into a proprietary, replicable methodology people want to purchase
position and market yourself as a respected topic expert and media resource
create a following on social media by sharing an original body of work that helps you stand out
turn "for free" advice into "for fee" coaching/consulting

Imagine how rewarding it will be to leverage all the time and effort you've poured into your book(s) and create a career that scales your impact and income - for good. Sam shares best-practices from her own 30 year career as an AUTHORpreneur and from her 17 years as Emcee of the Maui Writers Conference. She illustrates each recommendation with inspiring success stories from her clients who have delivered TEDx talks, spoken at SXSW and Aspen Ideas Festival, worked with Fortune 500 clients, appeared on national TV shows, received six figure consulting retainers, and grown 7 figure online followings. Bring your questions - whether it's how to speak on cruise ships, how to host online book clubs, or what to say when people want to pick your brain - for free.
