1. Ignite Your Business in 2022

Are you looking to ignite your business in 2022? Becoming a published author provides you with instant credibility, increases your visibility, enables you to attract more prospects, and get paid speaking engagements and media exposure.

But a lot of people struggle with writing a book.  It’s hard to find the time to write a book, know what topic to write on, and figure out how to get the expertise in your head down on paper in a coherent manner.  If you know you want to get a book done but you’re having trouble with it, we want to help you.  We have two holiday offerings that can save you big bucks.

First, we will provide you with a complimentary one hour Get Going On Your Book Strategy Session, worth $300, where we’ll work together to…

  • Create a crystal clear vision for the ultimate success you’d like to achieve from your book;
  • Uncover hidden challenges that may be sabotaging your ability to complete your book or attain the results you seek from it; and…
  • Develop a game plan to enable you to carve out the time to work on writing or promoting your book.

You’ll leave the session renewed, reenergized and inspired to finally complete your book or take action to attain your goals.

If you’d like to take advantage of this special, limited, and totally FREE 60 minute Get Going On Your Book Strategy Session, click here to answer some preliminary questions.   Make sure you include in the Comment section that you are seeking a Get Going On Your Book Strategy Session.  You must sign up by December 31, 2021.

Second, we are offering a HUGE discount off of our Book It:  Learn to Write a Profitable Non-Fiction Book virtual course.  This course consists of 4 modules and covers all the steps from building the foundation for your book through the writing stage, as well as an overview of the publishing process.  The modules can be viewed from the comfort of your own home or office, when it is convenient for you; and you can watch them over and over again.  You will also receive a workbook to use while you are going through the course, to keep all your information in one convenient place.

“I was really impressed with the SkillBites Book It! course.  I’ve been wanting to write a book for quite a while, but wasn’t sure how to go about it.  The course was very straightforward and gave me exactly the guidance I was looking for.  It definitely motivated me to get my book done.”

3. Book Writing Mastermind

For those of you who are struggling to get your book written, I’ve developed a program that will provide the support and accountability you need to write your book.  This is a beta program, so you have the opportunity to get in at a substantially reduced price.  I’ll be hosting a MasterMind for 3 months, meeting for an hour twice a month, starting the week of January 10.  The fee will be $750 for the 6 sessions, 50% of what it will be in the future.  The MasterMind is not intended for people who are thinking of writing a book and haven’t gotten started yet.  If you are interested, email me or call me so we can have a conversation and make sure you are a good fit.


4. New Author

SkillBites will soon be publishing Lori Borre’s first book The Harvest:  Service driven sales in a me driven world.  Lori is a Young Living Diamond, and her book is aimed at improving the sales capabilities of Young Living essential oils network marketers.  Here is Lori’s book description:

Hey Friend, there’s an elephant in the room, and it’s time to talk about it. You’re in sales. I know you don’t want to believe it because you don’t want to be “that” person. I know you’re afraid of being icky, pushy, and salesy, and of scaring away your friends. I’m here to tell you it doesn’t have to be that way.  When you change the focus, a whole new world opens up. In this book, you will discover how to do that.

You’re comfortable sharing oils. Why aren’t more people enrolling with you? What if I told you that when you embrace true sales and learn these simple, time-tested techniques, you will improve every area of your life, as well as begin to enroll more customers and brand partners in a genuine, authentic, service-driven way, with grace and ease?

I have been collecting, honing, practicing, and teaching these ideas for my entire life, and it’s time to share them with you. This is the quintessential non sales-sales book for the quintessential non network marketing-network marketing company. There’s room at the table, you know. Room for you.

The eBook is currently on pre-sale at dp/B09KZRKK16/.
