In this episode of The Profitable Practice Podcast, I talk about the first steps in how to write a self-published book.


Writing a book is on the bucket-list for many health and wellness practitioners I talk to. For most, they talk about it wistfully/dreamily without any real commitment.

For YOU though – it’s different. You have an idea forming in your mind about what you want to write AND it’s exciting! If that’s you, then you are ready to start exploring and mapping out the process of making it happen.

This is the first in a series of 4 episodes on my experience writing a self-published book – the whole process mapped out for you and my advice on how to avoid some common pitfalls.

If the desire to write a book sparks in your heart at all, it’s time to tune in below!
