I’m Jane Hardjono. I’m a lot of things. But in this space I am a Book Coach.
I help coaches and consultants write the non-fiction book that positions them as an authority in their field.
I developed a framework to shift you from ‘aspiring author of the
non-fiction book you’ve been wanting to write for a really long time’,
to the actual author of said book.
I help you morph Your Impossible Book into A Possible Book.
You get to share your story.
You get to transform people.
You get to make the impact you’ve always wished to make.
Seeing ourselves as we really are is tricky to do on our own. It’s like describing the taste of our own mouth or imitating our own walk. How do you describe your style when you write or communicate? Most of us need another person or a mirror to see these things clearly. That’s why a book coach is so valuable.
A first-time book writer will ask friends and family to review their work – these individuals are well meaning and generous but not necessarily story makers or book craftspeople.
Whether you are at the beginning of your process, and just have an idea, have done a tonne of research and a drawer full of notes or even have a manuscript that’s ready for a developmental edit … an editor will dissect your ideas, writing or notes and leave you with the pieces to put back together. Alone!
A coach will explain to you how to build this thing, give you feedback and help you out with what to do next.
Are you ready to create an orderly sequence of thoughts that will get you to publication, within a set time period? (Rather than the alternative, a jumble of words that could take a year or more, and not be publishing-ready.)
Oh and yes – I do ‘regular’ coaching, where we talk and I ask you questions and give you assignments and then check your pages and mark them up and explain the feedback and we work on how you process all that, emotionally and practically.
But if you like we can try other things, such as explore embodied practices, to help integrate the thinking and the feeling and the sensing and the doing. Reflecting in a movement-based way can be helpful when you want to do more than ‘just’ think your way out of your writing quandaries.
Take 20+ years’ experience in communication, marketing and advertising.
Then get an editor and writer. Plus an embodiment coach and facilitator.
Roll them all into one person, shake it out – and you get me:
Jane Hardjono, book coach.
