Over the coming week I want to share with you some of the amazing stories of people who are leveraging a book and Amazon to boost their business, brand and bank balance.
Sometimes you know you want to write a book, but are not quite sure what topic to choose or how to maximise that book for the biggest impact. My wish for you is that by sharing these stories, it may be the catalyst to help you launch your own book and success story this year too.

Maria Pau’s Story.
Maria joined my book course late 2013 with a mission to help more people overcome addiction. She wanted to create a bigger coaching program that could touch more people’s lives. Little did I realise how much she would touch my life with her amazing story.
Having come from a colourful life herself, from a very young age, and finally turning her life around, she realised that a book may just be what she needed to help more people cure their addiction and live a better life just like she had been able to do.
Maria has a coaching business called Coaching With Substance and for the last 3 years she had been trying to sell her $3,000 coaching program with little success. Not because it wasn’t great, but because people did not realise her area of expertise or that she was there to help them.
After listening to us on stage, she realised that she needed to reposition her knowledge and expertise with a book to allow her to stand out and have better credibility in her coaching business. Even though she had all the degrees and qualifications, it was not helping her get the message out to the people who needed her help as fast as she’d planned.
Maria bought the Best Seller Program and decided that very night, to absorb the entire course. [Most people take about 8 wks]. She was a woman on a mission and I for one was impressed. Within 8 weeks she had not only written and edited her book, but launched it to Best Seller status as well.
During her book writing process Naria gained the confidence to run another seminar where she spoke about her up and coming Best Selling book. That’s right failure was never an option for Maria. Heck if she could beat addiction and bipolar she could achieve anything.
It was at this seminar that she was able to sell $47,000 worth of coaching in one day. Why? Because she positioned herself and her coaching as a leader and gained their trust and instant credibility for her expertise. Something that is so important these days in business.
Not only that, she went on to win Best Not for Profit award at the 2014 Asia Pacific Business Excellence Awards. As well as a story on Channel 9. To say I was proud was an understatement!
Never let your beginning or your past be the last chapter in your book.
Maria Pau is living proof that anything is possible when you believe in your AWESOMENESS!
Since then she has gone on to write four #1 Best Sellers and her business is growing rapidly.
At the age of 11 this woman was pretty much on the streets living a pretty unsavoury lifestyle. Now she is changing lives.
What message, experience or expertise is sitting inside of you that could impact the lives of many?
