How many times have you been told
you should write a book?

With each passing day does the urge to tell 
your story get stronger and stronger?

Are you worried that you can't possibly find the time to actually sit down and write your book?

Well, guess what?

You can do this!

We work with authors who have purpose driven stories that they need to share with the world.

It takes a system, a process, and putting
one foot in front of the other. 
We invite you to participate in the
Getting Started for Authors program.
Let us help you Get Started! 
In our experience we know the top challenges
to writing and publishing a book. 

The top concerns we hear are—

I don't have enough time.

I am not a good writer.

I am not organized enough.

It is going to cost too much.

The learning curve is too steep.

I am not qualified to write a book.

I don't know how to get published.

I am afraid to fail.

I am afraid to succeed.
(Confronting stuff!)

I don't have enough emotional energy for this.

A "real" book has at least 250 pages -
I don't have that much to say.

Frequently Asked Questions
What do you mean by Publish Your Purpose and Purpose Driven?

Purpose Driven, by our definition, is a person who is passionate about their topic and desires to create change. A Purpose Driven author is someone who is looking to build their author platform, to spread a message about their respective expertise, and as a result, their efforts will impact the world for the better. The end result is having published your purpose, which will grow your audience, reach and impact.

What if I don't know my purpose?

You are more than welcome to participate in this program. We attract change makers who are looking to inspire. You may have the strong urge to write, inspire and tell your story, but aren't exactly where to begin or fully know what your 'purpose is' yet. That's okay! This program helps you figure that out. 

The program is ideal for those working on non-fiction books or memoirs, however, the writing process is similar if you are working on a fiction book—the examples used may not feel as relevant to you, if you are working on fiction. We do invite you to join us though!

What if I have an idea but haven't written anything yet, am I the right fit?

This is why we created this program. To help you take the idea in your head and put it on paper. If you are just now trying to wrap your head around your idea, we cover specifics of narrowing in on your idea and how to form a solid outline to work from. Even if you haven't written a single word, this program is exactly what you'll need to get started! 

What happens when I am done? Or if I am looking for more?

While this program covers the fundamentals of setting your goals and beginning to write your book, there is much more to the publishing process. For those looking to go further and figure out how to publish and then market your book, you are able to move on to the Author's Academy Intensive. The Author's Academy Intensive is a 14-week program that guides you through the process of writing, marketing and publishing your book. We help you access the tools and confidence you need to get your book published and turn your story into a powerful and profitable personal brand. You will learn a lot of information that you can then begin to tactically execute. If you work at a faster pace it means you can publish your book faster. If you work at a slower rate it means it'll take you a little more time. Writing a book is a big job—for some it may take 10 years to write a book, for others it can take 3 months. Regardless of where you fall on the spectrum the Author's Academy Intensive is designed to help push you to the next level needed to get the job done. For more information please visit

Is there a money-back guarantee? 

Yes. We are fully committed to helping you get your book written and published. We'll happily refund your money, but in order to be eligible for a refund, we require your completed exercises from all sessions at the time of your request. This means you must take action in this program. If you are not taking action, then you won't see results. If you do the work and don't get value, then we don't deserve your money and we'll happily refund your money. But we hope that's not the case. We do this because we are a looking for serious authors only. We take our learning environment seriously and maintain high standards that we expect all to adhere to.

Future Opportunities
Is there additional support after this program concludes?

Yes. We have found our authors have aspirations of getting everything done themselves, but this isn't always possible. Life gets in the way sometimes, but that doesn't mean your book should suffer. We offer a range of programs to fit your needs. From individual coaching (writing, marketing, business or accountability), to small group masterminds, to the full publishing process, we are here to help you. We would love to have a further conversation with you about how your book may potentially be published through our parent company, Publish Your Purpose Press.

Who is Publish Your Purpose Press?

Publish Your Purpose Press is a full service publishing company designed to get your book published and in the hands of your readers. Publish Your Purpose Press only publishes a limited amount of authors per year, so being a graduate of the Academy can give you better odds, although being a graduate is not a requirement.
