Read Books All Day and Get Paid For It: The Business of Book Coaching
There's a new player in the gig economy that's perfect for people who love books. It's called book coaching, and you really do get to read books all day and get paid for it. A book coach is a strategic professional who guides a writer through the creative process of developing a book -- helping them define the project, design the best narrative structure to tell their tale, and build both their confidence and their editorial skills as they write forward. Part project manager, part editor, part cheerleader, being a book coach is intellectually stimulating, soulful, satisfying work that you can do on your own time from the comfort of your own home. In Read Books All Day and Get Paid For It: The Business of Being a Book Coach, Jennie Nash, a multiple six-figure book coach and the founder and CEO of Author Accelerator, shares the nuts and bolts of the book coaching business -- touching on everything from pricing and processes to marketing and mindset. Jennie has trained more than 50 book coaches in how to coach fiction and nonfiction writers, and now she is sharing her secrets about how to run a successful side hustle or full-time book coaching business.

For years, Jennie Nash and I have had weekly private business strategy meetings where she shares the exact details of her business. Revenue, salaries, strategies, processes, all the secrets of how she grows and manages a multi-six figure business. To my surprise, she is now sharing these same things in a book that just anyone can buy. Read Books All Day and Get Paid For It isn't some vague pitch for how to be a book coach: it is an MBA for writers who want to understand how start a business from scratch. Honestly, I'm shocked at the level of details she shares in here on the process of book coaching, marketing, pricing, packaging services and so much more. What's more, she doesn't present it as one-size fits all, but instead allows the reader to personalize her advice in a Choose Your Own Adventure manner. It took me years and thousands of hours in conversation to learn from her total editorial and business genius. But you? You just have to spend a few hours reading the book, and then implementing her advice." -- Dan Blank, author of Be the Gateway: A Practical Guide to Sharing Your Creative Work and Engaging an Audience, founder of wegrowmedia.com
