Feeling overwhelmed, trying to wear all the hats and juggle too many balls?
Running any business, an authorpreneur one included, can be overwhelming. Balancing writing with entrepreneurship can feel like juggling multiple responsibilities, leaving you wanting to throw in the towel. But don’t give up! Invest in your business just as you did with your book. By doing so, you’ll realize that your business can and should support you, not the other way around.
Here are some of hats authorpreneurs wear and how we help you wear each proudly.
Tell the world about your business.
Don’t shy away from the solutions you have to problems your target clients are facing. Through message and offering clarity, you’ll be able to not just speak your target clients’ language, but you’ll attract them too.
Gain confidence to stop hiding.
When your brand is clearly articulated, you can and should shout from the rooftops about your business. Gather marketing assets and business models/frameworks to help you do so with ease and confidence.
Get smart about your business moves.
Plan for success from the start with our “look back to move forward” approach. Every business move should be strategic, and having your business goals in mind will ensure that you build a thriving business.
Prepare for droughts and downpours alike.
The backend of your business is more important than the front end, and yet, it’s frequently overlooked. Ensure that your business systems, processes and structures are designed to help you grow while stabilizing in the process.
People buy from and invest in people.
In addition to your offerings, you are your key differentiator. Ensure your personality shines in your messaging, marketing assets and content strategy. Photos, videos, marketing tools and visibility strategy should highlight you.
It’s time to work smarter, not harder.
You don’t have to figure it out alone. Leverage processes, workflows, SOPs and other templates from an authorpreneur who knows what you need and what works so that you can focus on your unique offerings instead.

To build or grow an authorpreneur business, you need a plan.
Many times we are in the grind of daily work, and we don’t prioritize ourselves or our businesses. Reflection time is critical to assess what is working and what isn’t, what success looks like and how to track it, and where you want to go and the steps you are going to take to accomplish your goals.
Authors who want to build thriving and sustainable businesses that align with their book’s message need a plan, clarity on their offerings and systems to make that happen. We are poised to support you in developing those during the Author emPact Summit.
During the Summit, benefit from group and one-on-one strategy sessions which will help you…
- Deepen your understanding of your target reader/client and identify their needs.
- Clarify your business messaging, core offerings and identify your unique differentiator.
- Utilized our “working backward to move forward” approach to ensure you have a sustainable business and capacity to grow accordingly.
- Take advantage of templated processes, systems and tools to help your business run smoothly.
Your visual story should complement your business story.
Every authorpreneur is navigating several stories! The written one (obviously) is shared through books. The spoken one is gifted from stages. The visual one, however, is a story that some authors overlook. A single photo can be game-changing for an author; imagine what multiple branded photos can do for you!
Photos will be taken during the event, and you can expect to receive…
- 2 digital author headshots
- A 30-minute mini brand photo session which includes 5 digital brand photos
- 4 digital photos of you interacting with “clients” or presenting
These photos make great assets to utilize in building your author platform, specifically when it comes to websites, social media and marketing materials to support your authorpreneur efforts.
Show them you mean business … an authorpreneur business.
It’s one thing to write your message; it’s another thing to share it. When readers and clients look to invest in your offerings, they want to see you and hear from you directly. People buy from people! That’s where a video business card comes in!
During the Summit, we will capture footage needed to create your video business card which includes an author interview, footage of you interacting with “clients” and conducting a presentation if applicable. A 2-3 minute video business card is a meaningful outcome of this event and will position you to build or grow your business.
Here’s what you can expect during the event…
- You will have a 30-minute video interview to help package your message and share your story.
- Footage captured of you with attendees to serve as client interactions.
- If presentations are a part of your suite of offerings, you can get footage of you conducting a presentation for inclusion.
If you want to build or grow a business, your target audience needs (and wants) to see you in action!
