I've been spending money again and this time I have just bought the Simpleology Bestseller Blueprint.
Over the last few months I have become quite a fan of Mark Joyner and Simpleology so when this offer came into my inbox today I found myself compelled to take action.
You see last week I was talking to a prospective business coaching client and I was explaining that I was reducing my coaching and consultancy work so that I could have the time to a) develop my blog more extensively and b) write two books.
I know, most sensible people who have never written one book wouldn't commit themselves to writing two, one of The Eight Pillars of Business Prosperity and the other about Customer Focused Entrepreneurs.
But I've always been a little crazy and I've had these two projects running through my brain for years but I've just been too busy to do anything about it.
Then last September I was inspired to start my blog and I have discovered that I love writing, but you knew that didn't you.
So today in comes the email from Mark Joyner offering to teach me how to become a bestselling author. I found myself thinking that since I was giving up tens of thousands of pounds work of coaching and consultancy fees to create the space to write the books, I really should make sure that I take some training on how to do it.
After all I am planning to write the books to make some money and to break out of the hours for fees trap that at first seems nice to a business coach/consultant but then suddenly becomes very restrictive.
The hours for fees trap [ means that if you want to make more money you have to work more hours (not good - it can be very pressurised and my effectiveness definitely reduces when I get tired or stressed) or I have to charge more per hour.
I'm not against the idea of charging more per hour but I do recognise that it becomes difficult for small businesses to justify paying it. Jay Abraham has reputedly charged $5,000 per hour for years but in can be difficult to convince someone else to pay a small fortune unless you have a stellar reputation like Jay Abraham.
Much better value for the customer and truer to the spirit of the customer focused entrepreneur is the idea of delivering high benefits for lower costs.
A book backed up by online training/coaching programs seems to be the way that business development/business coaching industry is moving. While personal focused time is good, it is so expensive.
So there we have it. My reasons for buying into the Simpleology Bestseller Blueprint.
It does sound packed with information and I have to admire Mark Joyner's commitment to the cause (or is that course?) Four coaching calls where he promised to answer every question and which in total went on for about twenty hours.
If you are not certain why anyone would want to be a top author, Mark Joyner has written a special free report called "The Rise Of The Author"
