A Free 5 Day Challenge To Complete A Project Is Scheduled for August 2017

I’m creating a FREE 5 day challenge to complete a project. The formula will be useful for future endeavors as well.

Those of you who have to deal with time passing while a project still sits on your shoulders, this challenge is designed for you.

I have the hands-on days’ trainings ready to go. Now I’m learning how to set the challenge up in an exclusive Facebook group. Tamara Monosoff’s BeLive video challenge coming up next week will give me practice for the five videos that I’m including in my Complete a Project Challenge.

I’d appreciate more comments about what problems you want to solve. It’s not too late for me to add possible applications.

See you soon. . .LIVE!

#1 Amazon Bestseller Update for Captivate Audiences to Create Loyal Fans

Thank you all who ordered the paperback copy of Captivate Audiences to Create Loyal Fans on launch day.  Although it didn’t reach #1 Amazon bestseller, the book ranked very well, thanks to all of you.

I chose three categories which you can see in detail if you go to my book on Amazon click here.

When you are on the book’s Amazon page, scroll down to Product Details at the bottom where you can view the rankings. Bright and early yesterday morning, I checked and I saw three digit numbers for each of the three categories.  I started to take screen shots and recorded the numbers at noon because they surprised me: #123, #133, and #177. . .a several hundred difference.

An hour and a half later, I read #35, #39, and #65. I did a happy dance. Then at 5:30, they were #19, #28, #42, another happy dance. At 6:45, better and better, #14, #21, and #38.

At 9:30 and 10:44 p.m. the numbers remained at #11, #16, and #30. I knew that would be the highest they would go. This morning, I double-checked and they were #20, #25, and #44.

I think #11, #16, and #44 are great rankings considering the competition. So I thank you all again for going on this exciting numbers adventure with me, and let me know how you like the book.

There’s a “high” one gets when a book is published (I felt the same way with Written Across the Genres). So I’m thinking of creating a companion book, which is what workbooks are called now. It will be filled with exercises to help writers and speakers hone their own life experiences based on the 20 examples and tips in this book. I’m developing an on-line course on a similar topic and these books will be reference material.

I want to thank Tamara Monosoff who taught me how to frequently encourage people to buy on the launch day, how to watch the ranking, and how to pick categories in the first place. Categories are key. With her guidance the eBook version of Captivate Audiences to Create Loyal Fans became a #1 Amazon Bestseller.

Let me know if you want to learn more on that topic and I’ll pass along her wisdom.  She and I have a passion to help people be successful.

By the way, I’m keeping the paperback at the launch price for another day. It is still $9.97 but will go up to $14.97.  If you didn’t order yesterday or want an extra copy at the discount price click here to get it directly.

I’d love feedback in the comments section on the idea of creating a companion book with exercises to hone one’s own life experiences. 

Have a happy day,

Tips to Reach Amazon #1 Bestseller Rank


One of the important keys to reach #1 Amazon bestselling status for non-fiction eBooks is picking the right categories for listing your book. The fewer books in a category, the better chance of reaching #1. And, of course, promoting the book’s launch with an offer for free on that day only is important.

  • Promotion involves emails and/or posts several days before the launch (and the day immediately before) to all your social media links and everyone you know if you don’t have a client list yet. Announce that the eBook will be free for only one day, the launch day. Those people who order it get a free book while helping you to reach #1. It’s a win-win.
  • Be sure to research categories on Amazon Kindle to determine what categories other authors used for books similar to your topic. Pick at least 2 or 3 to categorize your book. On the day of the launch, keep checking your book’s ranking all day and take a screen shot when it shows #1 so you have proof.

Captivate Audiences to Create Loyal Fans reached #1 at 6:30 a.m. in one category and continued to be #1 for three days. In the second category, it became #1 later in the afternoon and stayed at that level for two days.

Fiction books are in broader categories, making higher ranking more difficult. My advice to you is to write a non-fiction book so you can become a #1 Amazon bestseller, which will add expertise to your branding and interest in your fiction.

I prefer to write fiction, but I enjoy being a #1 Amazon bestseller. To continue visibility, I will write more non-fiction books as well as publishing the two novels I’m polishing: Hada’s Fog and Norman in the Painting. I just need more hours in the day.

Thanks to Stacey Gustafson and Tamara Monosoff for their advice and encouragement to be a #1 Amazon Bestseller.

If you have questions, write them in the comments. I usually answer in a day or two.

Get-It-Done Mastermind Group by Tamara Monosoff

Tamara Monosoff’s new mastermind starts in three days!  One opening left. She won’t be offering it again for a while. Here is her invitation.

The Get-it-Done Mastermind Group starts this Wednesday, April 19th.
I can’t wait!

There is still ONE SPOT LEFT. The first person to sign up, gets the spot.

If you are one of the extraordinary Authors, Experts and Coaches that have already signed up, you have taken the first step to achieving your income goals with your business.

Here’s YOUR Action Assignment for Wednesday’s first meeting:
If you’re in the program, I’d like you to think about the amount of money you would like to make with your business. Don’t be shy. Be honest. This is the first step in making your income a reality. No more spinning wheels, vague intentions, roadblocks… We are going to put a stake in the ground and FOCUS on what you want to create and earn and then… we are going to GET IT DONE!

If you haven’t signed up yet, ask yourself this…

> Are you tired of walking in endless circles not knowing the right actions to take to market your books, products, programs and services and generate the income you desire? You know, the income that would allow you to take a deep breath and smile knowing that all is well.

> Have you completed (or attempted to complete) yet another online course or left an event full of inspiration only to sit down in your home office and say, “What do I do now?”

> Do you have knowledge but have not been able to translate that into an actual system with a support group that works?

If this describes you… than the Get-it-Done Mastermind Group is perfect for you.

We are going to get clear about what we will accomplish together in the next 12 months. Yes! A big picture plan with the steps and support you need to see it through to actual success.

What will you celebrate in our Mastermind group?

> the launch of your book
> the creation of your online course and how to package and sell it
> landing speaking gigs that lead to more visibility, credibility and income
> setting up a Membership site (recurring monthly income)
> designing events and getting your venue for free!
> getting featured in the Media Spotlight
> learning how to magnify your message on Social Media (Facebook Live, BeLive.TV, 22 Social…)
> understanding and setting up your sales funnels (the right way!)

If you’re thinking about ways to open new doors of possibility, in a safe and supportive environment, filled with relevant training, clear strategies, tools and accountability — then you’ve come to the right place.

We already have amazing, smart people signed up who may be that perfect partner or friend that you’ve been hoping to meet along your journey.
