JANUARY 20 – 24, 2020

The book-coaching industry isn’t necessarily new, but it might as well be. Just like the writers you work with, you may feel like you do this work in isolation, unconnected from the other coaches who might be out there facing the same challenges and questions that you are. That’s why we’re so excited to be hosting the first-ever free online Business of Book Coaching Summit. We’re putting together an incredible lineup of business and coaching leaders who will show you how to run a successful, sustainable, soulful business. Join us for 5 days of in-depth classes and workshops with advice you need to see your business thrive and connect with coaches just like you.
