"Judy McNutt, here, what's goin' on?" I used to ask that every day on the radio, where it was all about connecting with "The Listener."
Your Inner-Author has become a "listener" for the last few years. She is more than ready to get this book done, dusted, and ready to publish!
Interview with a McNutt
Q. How did you get from radio management and marketing to mentoring women's course creators to write a book?
A. In my book the WooWoo answer is the honest answer. The soul-calling and desire of these women to write a book that makes a difference in the lives of others" called me in to help, because we both want the same thing, a better life experience in a better world!
Q. Why are you working exclusively with alternative health practitioners, intuitive coaches, and women's online course creators?
A. I grok* this specific family of womenpreneurs because I've been in business at least part-time for many years. When you're a public school teacher (my second 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. Based on all of my life experiences and awakenings, I started Masterminding a proprietary way of building a publishing package, and writing books ready to go to the publisher.
Q. Then came the quantum leap?
A. Yes. I noticed in my business-minded women's relief-writing groups that with the idea that one of them could and should write a book she was filled with doubt. I felt two things.
Q. Which were?
A. Compassion and a fire in the belly! It's interesting that a woman's soul urges her to share her gifts, and at the same time, she fears she 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.
This concludes my interview with Judy McNutt. Judy is a mentor working with coaches, by her own description, woo woo practitioners, course creators, and women who see a book as a beautiful way to make a difference in the lives of others:
- Masterminds; wisdom keepers, Goddess Ministers, Feminine Masters. What do you call yourself? A" Woo woo" coach?
- Are you a practitioner, intuitive expert, healer/ reader/ guide/ herb gardener/ tincture maker? Yes, you want to help people have a better life-experience, too!
- Finally, you might be a women's course creator. A worldwide change expert or artisan!
- BTW-Off-mic I asked Ms. McNutt whether she thought she was gender-biased. "No." she said with a self-confident gaze, "It's just that wise women working chiefly with other 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)."

"I loved the experience of taking your quiz. I never thought of who I am as being a gift."
Nadia Shana Krauss, Bestselling Author
"You were the one who expressed my most precious gift for the very first time when I took your writer's gift quiz...I took your quiz and got the answer True Heart Writer, and you went on and 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 your quiz, and I really love calling myself a True-Heart writer now."
Nadia shares her life-changing experience with the quiz and her results session so you can see what it might be like to work with me on your heart-centered book:
