If you want to write a book that makes a difference in the world, then listen to today’s podcast with guest Dr. Angela Lauria of The Author Incubator. She has helped dozens of coaches write and publish their first books and shares some juicy tips with us in this episode.
During this episode we talk about the what it means to write a book that makes a difference — that it needs to go beyond containing transformational content and get into readers’ hands and be read!
“About 80% of your marketing opportunities
are gone once the book is finished and published.”
~ Angela Lauria
The biggest mistake authors make when writing a book, is starting with the writing. in fact, many spend even more time trying to answer the question, “Is my writing good enough?” They buy books, go to workshops, take seminars … all in an effort to improve their writing. However, if you can get past those mindset obstacles, your book will be birthed very quickly.
“On some level, this book is already done
and your only job is to remove the obstacles
between yourself and world receiving this work.”
~ Angela Lauria
Angela shares one tool she uses with her clients to help them get into “flow” — and write their books more quickly — more often. She also explains why you might consider going with a small boutique publisher over self-publishing the first times you publish.

Mentioned in this podcast:
The quote I was thinking of was actually two quotes from Michelangelo, “Every block of stone has a stature inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it,” and “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” Angela was referring to Auguste Rodin’s quote, “I choose a block of marble and chop off whatever I don’t need.”
