What Happens During my Coaching Calls?

Coaching calls are unique depending on what program you're in.

For students in the VIP program, your first Coaching Call is called a Clarity Call.

For students in Fundamentals of Fiction, your first Coaching Call is called a Plot Call.

Whatever program you are in, the purpose of the first Coaching Call is to talk about the "big picture idea" of your book with your coach.

For example, making sure your target audience is clear, the "problem" you're helping your reader solve is defined, and the structure of your book is progressing.

For students in the Sell More Books program, your first Coaching Call is called a Strategy Call.

Because the Sell More Books program is for authors who have already published their book, the Strategy Call focuses on what has been successful, and what has failed, with your book so far.

This way, as you go through the Sell More Books program, you and your coach can choose what strategy or blueprint is most appropriate for you.

Please know that all coaching calls take place on Zoom, so be sure to see the support article on how to Download and use Zoom.
