Here’s what just a few people are saying about these workshops…(see more here.)

Lois is a natural facilitator, with a positive energy that is infectious. While her workshops are organized with a logical flow of topics, she addresses all participant questions tactfully and encourages group discussion. Having attended two of her workshops to date (Write a Book, Grow Your Business & Blogging for Business), I appreciate the sheer quantity of information and advice provided. Both sessions included activities that allowed for application to our own individual projects, goals, and businesses. After only 90 minutes, I left with a clear plan of action, renewed enthusiasm, and actual completed steps that I could implement immediately. I look forward to attending more of Lois’s insightful workshops! ~ Julia Willson, Owner, Edits by Julia

In Lois’s 2-hour workshop I received more clear information than I did searching for days online. She was upbeat, knowledgeable and encouraging. I would definitely recommend to seek her out for advice on all things self-publishing. ~ Adria

Lois’s introductory workshop is phenomenal. It is full of great content, strategies, resources. Powerful! A must attend for anyone who wants to be or has ever thought about being an author. ~ Bob “Bobby G” Biss

I particularly appreciated the active question and answer sessions and the detailed subject matter covered. ~ Lynette Adair, Author of The Sea Sprite Inn

A book is a versatile and powerful tool for growing your business. We will explore what to write, how to write it and, most importantly, the impact writing a book will have on your business. The time has never been better to tell your story.
