"Judy McNutt, here..."
I used to say that every day on the radio.
Now my days are filled with intuitive mentors and coaches like you working on their soul-story business book to inspire clients and grow their audience.
Turn your head; I'm removing my cork for a moment. What got me started mentoring "leaderful teachers" to get out their notes and start writing their books? It's that I grok women-preneurs because I've been in business at least part-time for many years. When you're a public school teacher, you have to do something to make ends meet.
Back to what I saw in my business mastermind group- just the idea that centered, gifted, and sovereign women could and should write a book filled them with doubt and me with compassion. Interesting, don't you think, that the soul urges us to share our gifts, and at the same time, we fear we will be attacked or killed for it. Marvelous and Magical as it is, the human brain wreaks havoc in the lives of creative humans.
"Your brain is not the boss of your soul, and the brain is only a small percentage of your body, so why do we let the brain imprison what the soul came here to do?" –Judy McNutt-Mentor.
One problem stuck in my brain is that I'm not a fan of the catch-all term Coach; I don't use it for myself. I'm a mentor, not a coach, but apparently, I work with coaches:
- Masterminds; wisdom keepers, Goddess Ministers, Feminine Masters. what do you call them? "Woo woo" coaches?
- Then there are the practitioners, intuitive experts who do healing/ reading/ guiding/ herb gardening/ tincture diluting, etc., more woo stuff, right? Yes, they want to bring their soul books into the world, too!
- Finally, the women's course creators are the world change artisans.
- Someone asked me whether I am gender-biased. No. It's just that wise women working chiefly with women are my wheelhouse. I can read them, guide them, open their souls, so their gifts will pour out into a book that I know the world needs (before they even know for sure).
If you're looking for someone who goes from pen to published, that's not me. Traditional Publishing is too dense for my sensitive being. Anyway, self-publishing makes infinitely more sense; you maintain your sovereignty, ownership, and a more significant percentage of book sales, but I digress.
That said, I can (and love to) help an author prep, write and produce their publishing "package" and book proposal, which is far more than the vast majority of writers and writing coaches take to the publisher.
I laid out all of this "About" stuff without even mentioning I am a published author and contributor to an Amazon Bestseller.
YOUR ROAD SO FAR?
You start writing. 4 chapters in, you stop.
18 months later, you feel inspired and buy some supplies. (I love pens and journals, too!) Write a bit, and then your business calls you back to solve a crisis or level up. You stop writing.
2 years later- you're convinced a book will be good for business, so you spend tons more money on courses, classes, and coaches to the tune of "No Book Today," and it bothers you.
You make a fast start. You're a model student, but it's hard to do business and keep up; you fall behind, learn some good stuff, practice some of it, use some new methods, and write a bit more. And then, You. Stop. Writing.
"I give up. I'm wasting my time with another vanity project." (Strangely enough, no writing happens here, but you are quite prolific with self-sabotage-talk!)
CHOOSE A DIFFERENT ROAD:
There are Five Things you must know before you even start writing that will get your book into the hands of more readers! TAKE THE QUIZ AND SAY "YES" TO GET RESULTS.
So, if you're all finished with your work for the day, marketing, and social media done and dusted, you're cozied up in bed chillin', and you'd care to have a go at writing the book you've been searching for all of your life, I say you're ready to JUICE!
You're invited to take The Writer's Gift Quiz, which is all about revealing your gifts so you can write your book with ease and when we celebrate the completion of your manuscript and book package, and you move on to publishing, you'll already be ahead of the game!
PS- Ask me what JUICE means and what's up with the creatures at the top of the page when we meet. Write that down! xx Judy
"Thank you for the quiz consultation and recording. I found it so interesting and inspiring. I put my Amethyst necklace on this morning, and because it’s cold here today, I’m wearing my gold pashmina around my shoulders. So I’m drinking in all that violet and Queen Bee, Conscious-Creator energy before I write today." –Jan in the UK.
"I found it so surprising and right on. Magical!" Yvonne in Ukiah, California
"Surprisingly accurate!" Lauren in New York
"This was great, and it let me know I'm on the right track plus inspiration to grow as a writer." Suzanne, mentor to at-risk women and published author.
