 Become an Author of Change...
and Create the Change You Want to See in the World?


You must be the change you wish to see in the world.~Mahatma Gandhi  


How do you become an author of change?

How do you turn your dream of being a change agent into a reality?

Each of us has an internal drive to change the things in this world we see as being wrong, unjust or standing in the way of our dreams. We will react with anger, exasperation or a sense of mission. We may even come up with ideas of how to create the world we wish to see. The problem is often inertia. If we do not know the steps to manifest our vision we are doomed to sit in the proverbial unlit room and curse the darkness.

We have created this course, Author of Change Transformational (ACT) Coaching Program, to provide you with the steps to really make a difference. Whether you are looking to change yourself or the world around you, the process offered in this program will give you the tools to do both. Together we bring many years as insiders in the writing and publishing industries coupled with being pioneers in spirituality and human potential. We share our gifts and knowledge to give you a step by step program to become Authors of Change. You can become the change you wish to see in the world, create books, blogs and products to support your goals and become prosperous doing it. All you need is to know where to begin and what steps will take you there.

"Writing Books that Inspire Change."

Change starts now. We can show you how to do it—and how to create it on a larger scale.

Change begins with you! Then you or someone like you shares his or her story and wisdom and a chain of inspiration is created. Then we join in each other’s journeys and causes and pretty soon we have created a community of Change Agents. This is all because you are willing to pick up the mantle to live to your potential and to learn the steps we will provide to you in this course.

Are you ready to become an author of change?

If you feel called to change on a personal level, to recreate yourself as you would like to be, this course is for you.
If you feel called to help others change themselves because of things you have learned along th way, this course is for you.
If you feel called to write about what you know and to create your own brand around your message, this course is for you.

If you are content with the world and who you are and have no further goals in this lifetime, this course is NOT for you. We do not judge you. But if you believe that is because you can’t do anything differently that is your inertia talking: And this course IS for you.

If you feel called to become an Author of Change, if you feel it is your purpose to inspire others to create change, let us know you are interested so we can notify you the next time the course is offered.

So, how do you know if you are ready to become an Author of Change? If you answer "yes" to any or all of these questions, it's time for you to become a change agent.

Do you feel a sense of purpose?

However, the ACT Coaching Program is not for the faint of heart. You will be asked to look at yourself on many levels. You will need to look at change before can inspire it.

how you need to change to become a successful published author
how you need to alter your message to make it effective
what you need to do to create the kind of message, movement, community, blog, or book that will inspire change in the world.

 If you want to write a book, you’ll be asked to evaluate your book’s:


In the process, you will transform into the type of person, writer and businessperson who can combine passion and purpose into inspiration—inspiration that inspires you and others to change. You will become an Author of Change. 

Are you ready to transform yourself, others, the planet, the world? Let us know...

The Three ACT Steps

3 Steps will transform you into an Author of Change, steps that help you prepare to become a a change agent and to inspire others to change as well. The ACT Coaching Program consists of these three steps--one for each month of the program. For each step you will end up with one or more ACT plans. 

I. Author of Change in Your Life

As Ghandi said, you must first be the change you want to see. Even if you have already experienced life altering change and you now want to inspire others to similar change, you likely have some steps to take before you are ready to become that type of leader or promoter of this work. You must transform yourself into a change agent.

In this module you will go through a self-assessment process to discover how you want or need to change so you can inspire others. You will evaluate yourself for success as an Author of Change. This module is also appropriate if you simply want to create personal change in your own life so you can more effectively help others do the same.

ACT Plan:

3 ways to better deal with change
3 ways to create personal change
3 ways to create professional change
3 ways to create spiritual change
4 ways to become a change agent.

II. Author of Change in the World

This module focuses on how you can take your message out into the world effectively. It asks you to think outside the box and consider creative modes of communicating and spreading your message, and to begin using social media to inspire change. You are asked to transform yourself into a leader, a community builder and a communicator in a variety of ways.

ACT Plan:

3 ways to communicate more effectively or comfortably
3 creative ways to communicate your message
3 ways to use social media to inspire change

III. Author of a Change-Inspiring Book  

This module focuses on authoring a life changing, world changing book. You will learn how to evaluate your book for success from idea to full content plan.

You will explore ways to get your book written quickly and effectively.
