LATEST: Course is updated for Winter 2016-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Do you know how I've found the time to write 30 books, hundreds of magazine articles, develop 11 online courses, create more than a half-dozen commercial webinars, and consistently increase my income? By finding small chunks of free time that I sandwich between real-life "have-to's".
"Nancy is a wealth of ideas about how to get more out of the small bits of time that can be easily wasted. I can see now how I will be able to progress towards some very large goals. Thanks!" Bruce Myron
If you have a real life - and I hope you do - your days are probably filled with
What you DON'T have is four to six hours of free time every day to just sit down and quietly write . . . even though you want to write a book, make more money with your writing or start a freelance business.
If this sounds like you, The 15-Minute Writer is exactly the right course for you. In this course you'll discover just how much you can get written in 15 minutes. And you'll be shocked at how those 15 minutes can add up over a week, month or a year. (Hint:Yes, you can write a novel using this technique). The reality is: the more you write the more your income can increase.
Don't spin your wheels if you don't have hours of free writing time because you really can accomplish more than you imagine in just 15 minutes of writing daily.
Before your begin this course, take 10 minutes and write a list of your big goals, i.e. write 10 books.
