People often say that they don’t know what a book coach is or what we do – but ironically, these are sometimes the exact people who are already doing the work, but not getting paid for their time and talent.

How to tell if this is you?

Book coaching is a new gig in the gig economy that’s perfect for people who love books. We work with writers throughout the creative process, shepherding them through, cheering them on, guiding them to find their voice, and helping them to keep their project on track. If you’re looking for a side hustle or a whole new career, you may want to check it out.

Have you ever considered book coaching? What, if anything, has held you back? Have you ever used a book coach? How did you find the experience? The floor is yours.
