Overview

Are you looking for a ghostwriter? Perhaps you are an expert in your field and would love to write a book. Only, you can’t find the time or don’t have the inclination to translate your ideas onto paper. Maybe you’ve tried before and find yourself drowning in content, unable to find a suitable structure to do justice to your thoughts. Have you discovered that you hate writing or writing hates you?

Perhaps it’s time to hire an award winning ghostwriter with a proven track record.

I have collaborated with business leaders, entrepreneurs, coaches and consultants, health practitioners and speakers on topics as diverse as personality profiling, leadership, neuroscience, analytics and big data or personal development and wealth creation. To me ghostwriting is a true collaboration. As the subject expert you bring your knowledge and experience and I convert that into a well written content rich book - the ultimate business card.

According to one well known study 96% of non-fiction authors surveyed reported that writing a book positively influenced their business. In addition authors also reported that their book:

* Improved their brand (94%)

* Led to more speaking engagements (95%)

* Resulted in more clients (96%)

* Generated more leads (94%)

* Allowed them to charge higher fees (87%)

* Facilitated a more desirable client base (87%)

* Helped to close more deals (76%)



"Writing a book is a tremendous experience. It pays off intellectually, clarifies your thinking and builds credibility. It is a living engine of marketing and idea spreading, working every day to deliver your message with authority. You should write one.

- Seth Godin



If you don't feel you can, let's talk and let me help you to write one.
