About The World Needs Your Book

The World Needs Your Book has a simple mission: to help more people with big stories, messages, and ideas finally get their thoughts into books that can be shared with others. Everyone has a book that has changed their life, so what better way to change the world than through books?

We are all works-in-progress, and I love when people’s strengths, skills, and passion align in both work and life. This is why I founded The World Needs Your Book program to help coaches, entrepreneurs, memoirists, writers, and novelists get their own messages and stories into the world through books.

All of our content, from our free resources to our paid training programs, begin with the impact you want to make on the world. I then help you to build a sustainable business around your idea, message, or story so that you can reach and help more people.
