Coaching for Authors and Illustrators





Helping creative people make a living doing what they love

Award winning author and Director of Share Your Story, Michelle Worthington has developed a coaching program that focuses on strategies for success for aspiring authors and illustrators. The Five part program consists of up to 6 strategy sessions tailored to meet the specific needs of each participant. Strategy is the making of an integrated set of choices that collectively position your brand in the your industry. At our publishing strategy sessions, you make decisions on how you will create wealth doing what you love by following each step of the Share Your Story framework. For every publishing strategy session we host, at the cost of $50 AUD per session, Share Your Story will provide one day of education for a disadvantaged girl in Cambodia to attend a local trade college, thanks to the support of B1G1.

Our Difference

Unlike most other mentor programs, Share Your Story has a six month personalised process that is individually tailored to your needs:

1. Story Development

What are your big dreams? What is your purpose, your motivation? This first step is about your ideal future, and it frames all other decisions.

2. Professional Development

Where you position your brand and how you can become a leader are tightly connected and are the heart of your strategy session. This is where we begin to narrow our focus.

3. Building Community

You’ll decide what will enable you to create unique value and sustainably deliver content that adds value to the world.
