I MAY BE A NUT, BUT I KNOW MY SHIT!
I excel at fostering, guiding, and caring for multi-passionate women like you. My heart goes out to you when you ask:
"How will I know what to write?"
"How should I start?"
"How will I find time to write while running a business?"
"This is what I have written so far; seems so ordinary, is it even any good?"
"That is brilliant," I say. You've been stifled by doubt. I can't wait for the day you see that the possibilities are unlimited once you decide to "just start writing something, anything!"

"Judy was the one who expressed my most precious gift for the very first time when I took her writer's gift quiz...I took the quiz and got the Author-style True Heart Writer. And she went on to described me, and that was the first time that someone described me in that way and described it as a gift! I loved the experience of taking the quiz, and I really love calling myself a True-Heart Writer now."
FAQ Interview with Judy McNutt,
The Holistic Book Coach, and Writing Mentor
Q. I'm just curious, you come from a radio background, how did you get from radio performance, management, and marketing to mentoring entrepreneurial women with a book on their bucket list?
A. That's just what the One Sheet says. Radio. The real question is how did I corral my multi-passionate universe to focus on book coaching? The real answer is the soul-calling and desire of women change-makers to write their books that called me in to help. We both want the same thing, a better life experience in a better world!
Q. OK, so why do you work exclusively with multi-passionate entrepreneurs and online practitioners.
A. I grok* this specific family of womenpreneurs because I've been in business online at least part-time for many years. When you're a public school teacher (my second wave career), you have to do something to make ends meet!
* to grok is to understand (something) intuitively or by empathy.
Q. Woah! When did "public school teaching" get in the mix?
A. After radio burnout, before Covid. I retired from formal teaching and published a book of poetry and art. That gave me the first-hand preparation for participating in an Amazon Bestseller which got me interviews, which brought women wanting help with their books to my gate.
Q. But how did that get you to where you are now?
A. Well, based on all of my life experiences and awakenings, I started sorting to find a better way to help these women write their books and get them ready to go to the publisher.
Q. Then came the quantum leap to working with busy women to write a book on top of everything else they're doing?
A. Yes. Besides "lunatic time management" and "where do I start?" a surprising disconnect for vibrant, successful women is fear and doubt that they could ever be a "WRITER writer."
Q. I've heard that 97% of the people who started writing never finished their book. What can writers do differently, and how do you help differently?
A: Yes. The majority of people who start a book don't finish it. Emotions kick in when you overtax your brain, and your infant manuscript slips silently into a drawer next to a dusty vibrator. [Terry laughs]
Listen, it's obvious they have gifts to share, so we wake up all senses, connections, energies, as well as the dark and hidden gifts, to write bite-sized stories for a segment to save for the book.
Finally, they start using these and other holistic writing techniques to complete the book that brings their heart and soul into contact with readers already searching for precisely what they offer.
This concludes my interview with Holistic Writing Coach and Mentor Judy McNutt. Judy may be a nut but she works with multi-passionate entrepreneurs and practitioners who see a book as another way to make a difference in the world.
