Short cut your business success journey with Judy Cullins as your business partner!
Was I going to be “green and growing” or ‘ripe and rotting?” I asked myself.
A college and adult teacher In the early 1980's, I didn’t see myself staying in that bureaucracy for long. The staff called me a “Xerox abuser.” They were right. I wrote one early book, “Beyond Speedreading” and printed it on the school’s machine. The school then hired me to teach speedreading and supereading in a class called “Personal Growth” - my first inkling of my entrepreneurial journey to come. I went on to create 4 more seminars to include “The One-Minute Nurse” and “How to Create your Own Job.”
I finally left the school bureaucracy to create my own business. I just didn’t fit in with all the rules and often got called to the Dean’s office. I read somewhere that I’d need business skills of speedreading, speaking, marketing, sales, communication, and record keeping and writing! I had the reading and writing down, but needed more marketing, speaking and sales skills.
I opened “Skills Unlimited” seminars in the mid 80’s and presented “How to Become an Entrepreneur” “Marketing is a Philosophy, Not a Department “and “Beyond Speedreading.” Each year, I added new seminar titles, then wrote the required books to sell with the seminars. This led to many more seminars in the personal growth and holistic health field - and from a passion coach I evolved to a “How to Write your Book” seminar with a book I wrote that my attendees could take home and keep learning from. For all the skills I needed, I wrote books and gave seminars. And that’s so true today with authors. We write the books we need to read.
Still going strong in 2012, my mission and passion in my present day full-service book coaching is to help unknown authors create the income they deserve, build their confidence, writing skills, and marketing tactics to get their unique, useful story out to their audience who wants an outstanding life and work.
Five San Diego based seminar companies hired me to teach my “skills unlimited.” All giving my skills polish and income that was way beyond my wildest dreams - just what I wanted. No more teaching English!
I kept taking business seminars and learning from business networking groups. All this said to me, “Time to focus on my favorite skill.”
Hence, I landed on “How to Write a Book - Fast" seminars and my still best-selling book of the same name in the 1990’s, enjoying them then and still today. To fill the seats, and sell the books, I gladly wrote 10 press releases each month and gave free talks at the libraries.
After 25 local authors published with me, I knew a need was there. Time to expand to new audiences online - mostly non-fiction authors, many of whom were business people who wanted to brand themselves with a book.
Yes. In one local publishing group, I ran into a few nay sayers with loud voices. They questioned me, "who was I to share these book skills?” A complete unknown! I didn't listen to the negatives. I steered clear of the negative people. I joined a woman's networking group who focused on business growing with love called GROW (Giving and Receiving Organization for Women) and got the support I needed.
Yes. Before I published my first business book, "The Annotated San Diego Networking Directory," my computer broke down and I had to type the manuscript on a typewriter! - what a blow. But I made the deadline (live line) and sold 500 copies in the first two months. With little budget, savvy friends set up the graphics and format to get this book into print. My name got to be known by the all business shakers, because I interviewed them. They helped build my business with word of mouth, and became good friends too.
Yes. I left a smothering marriage and a hard divorce. It did lead to one of my early books, "Joy Ride," a memoir. You can bet the joy came after the divorce! This action opened up the doors to new adventures including all these new positive friends and building my coaching business. I love my fun in personal relationships as well as I love the fun in my coaching relationships. I believe, if it ain't fun and easy, don't do it.
I changed who I hung out with and joined another publishing group, whose leader I am still good friends with, where my job was to book speakers for the monthly programs.
A great opportunity for me. After booking a program with self-publishing giant, Dan Poynter, I got to know him. He encouraged me and even endorsed my #1 best-selling book, "Write your eBook or Other Short Book - Fast!"
I knew there was a better way for authors to write books fast and make sure they would sell well. I was determined to share these gems with a much bigger audience - the online audience of millions! Our relationship was great giving and receiving. I first gave Dan helpful book writing and marketing tips for his newsletter, then asked him to partner with me in a teleseminar, " Promoting your Book for Introverts and Reluctant Marketers." Dan was the introvert, and I, the extrovert. What fun we had. It was a financial success too. From these helping hands and gentle people, and my years of experience teaching book writing, I launched my book coaching business, and have been online since 2000.
I discovered new positive friends and a support group in San Diego. I joined "Giving and Receiving for Women." in 1981 and was active quite a few years. It focused on business, writing, communicating, and marketing, through weekly speakers. Here, I gave talks on the benefits of speed reading, mind mapping, and marketing. Many of us were teachers and today we are on LinkedIn and other social media venues. I still connect with some of these powerful, passionate women with a mission.
I've never looked back to the traditional book marketing paths. And from these beginnings I got the confidence to investigate and use the internet to market my books and show my clients how to do that too. Thank you early mentors and coaches who made my journey easier and faster. And fun. Thank you social media for all you've done for us! It seems natural that my book coaching writing sessions now include book marketing, social media marketing, web copy writing and business building.
That's why I authored 13 more books, including, "Advanced Article Marketing," “10 Non-Techie Ways to Market your Book Online," "Building your Business with Twitter," and my latest, "LinkedIn Marketing: 8 Best Tactics to Build your Book and Business Sales." That's why I've published 500+ articles and blogs over the past 12 years, and delivered 100's of programs via teleseminars with skills, how to's, and compassion for my audiences.
It’s still strong today, with a seasoned wisdom I got along the way. I’m happy to have helped 85 clients publish their books, and many more to build their business with social media, blogs, and sharing their branding story to upload onto their websites in the “About You” pages.
My motto to this day is, "It's always easier, cheaper, and faster with a partner."
