Your Author Business Plan
Are you ready to take your author career to the next level?
A business plan is a roadmap that will take you from where you are to where you want to be.
I'm Joanna Penn and in 2008, I created a business plan that led to the multi-six-figure creative business I run today. Of course, things have changed over time and there have been many updates and iterations to the plan, but it has guided me over more than a decade in the writing and publishing industry.
In this mini-course, you will discover:
- Why you need a business plan if you want to turn your writing into a long-term career
- The elements of an effective business plan — for both fiction and non-fiction writers
- The questions you need to answer to discover what lies behind the plan
- How to turn that plan into action so you can move forward in your author career
Includes a template business plan for you to fill in, a consolidated question list, and a template Asset Master List for keeping track of your books.
[Don't worry! This is not a spreadsheet-tastic course! This is a creative business plan process and you can work through the material using any medium you like. No need to create a linear plan.]

""It has been such a good course! I have done many business plans before but never specifically for my author business. As I am working on my 3rd book now, it’s time to think of it as a business and so this course is really helpful! The course has just the right amount of information, not overwhelming and yet cover a good ground of all the things need to be considered. Thank you Joanna!” Sze Wing Vetault
