April 3rd – Accountability: A Critical Component for Success in Writing

We know that accountability is a critical component for success in anything we undertake, especially as business leaders, professionals and entrepreneurs.  That accountability extends into writing as well.  One of the best ways to increase the likelihood of having a powerful, effective book is to engage in peer review as you write your manuscript – that means sending out chapters to colleagues and peers to review and critique and comment upon before you tackle your final draft.  When you engage in peer review, you become vulnerable: your book is your “baby.” You also open yourself to attaining a higher quality end product.  Today’s guests share their insights and experiences in opening themselves and their work and writing to “peer review” and the advantages they have gained from peer review.

Belinda Mays describes herself as a summa cum laude graduate from the school of Hard Knocks. Her book is  The Success Project, The Making of a Worthy Ideal.  Ms. Mays is the owner and founder of The Success Project, LLC.  She specializes in helping time-challenged business owners and entrepreneurs get the results they seek by providing coaching, tools, resources and accountability check-ins.  Jim Villwock, a former Fortune 500 global executive, is the founder of Job Doctors International and the creator of Integrated Success – the new model for Organizational and Individual Success.  Jim has written several books.  His current book is in peer review with at least 30 colleagues and peers commenting on Jim’s draft.

March 6th – The Power of Story to Enhance Our Writing and Our Bottom Line

We constantly hear the power of story:  in a job interview share a story of how you tackled a challenge at work and resolved it; when meeting with potential clients, tell a story of how your work or product had a positive impact on the bottom line of other clients; when writing an article or a book, fill it with personal stories.  Today’s guests have highly successful businesses, speak often to challenge others to success and are authors.  Stories are key to their presentations.  Donna Satchell is a Professional Speaker, Success Skills Trainer, Author, and President of STARR Consulting & Training, an organization dedicated to motivating, training, and helping individuals and businesses achieve greater success.   Jim Dawson is a nationally recognized, award-winning expert in the area of human functioning in the workplace. His company is ADI Marketing. As a presenter/speaker Jim has addressed and impacted thousands of people and achieved impressive results for his clients. Listen in as Donna and Jim provide insights on identifying the stories in our lives which we can use in our writing, speaking and especially in growing our businesses.
