Did you have a vision in your mind for your life that you've made come true?
Did you decide to design your circumstances to be the GOAT? (Greatest Of All Time)
Do you have passion, determination, and a never-give-up attitude about living your best life no matter what obstacles you come up against?
This is going to be an incredible, inspirational collection of stories about intentionally creating an extraordinary life against all odds.
This will be book #2 in the “Absolute” series; the first collaboration was Absolute Will which became an international best-seller just in its first few weeks after we launched.
Everyone has a story, and everyone who wants to grow a following or network is wise to get published. It's great publicity. Becoming a published author increases your credibility practically overnight and is a very powerful marketing tool for your new or growing business/ brand/ professional designation.
And being in a collaboration is the easiest way to achieve that outcome.
Each of the Absolute Will co-author collaborators (our first collaboration, published in October 2021) can now call themselves an international best-selling author on their resume, their website, their business cards and in their networking circles. They are also now gaining new clients for their businesses, and are getting speaking engagements, podcast invites, selling courses they have created, and more.
What could this kind of publicity do for your business?
Have you done something REALLY BIG that was a direct result of applying action to your dreams and goals? Whether you believed you could do it at the time or not … you learned a great deal about yourself along the way, right?
"YOUR INTENTION" is a key component of this book and the stories we are looking for. No matter what was happening in your life, what did YOU choose to do about it?
Do people marvel at your self discipline and your focus on creating momentum and making incredible outcomes happen for your life?
Do you love using techniques like dream boards, vision casting, vision boards, meditation, and journaling your goals?
What other techniques do you use to make sure you are focused and committed enough to reach your goals?
Do you have a system figured out to be able to create whatever you desire for your life? And have you made it happen?
We are encouraging inexperienced and unpublished authors, as well as previously published authors, and yes, this time men can be in it too! And couples can co-write a chapter if they’d like to.
Any topic area is welcomed:
- turning your health around despite a major diagnosis,
- a financial “rags to riches” story,
- radically changing careers,
- taking on a tricky/risky project, or
- moving across the world… as just a few examples.
Whatever you did, it was because you had a vision for creating the life you want to live and you worked hard to take action and make it happen!
Do you also love being involved in altruistic projects?
Guess what? Just like with Absolute Will, as a bonus to you getting published, 100% of the profits from the author entry fees from Absolute Vision will be going towards the completion of the house we are building for a family in Nicaragua who doesn’t have a home of their own.
We were in Nicaragua over the winter and broke ground in early January 2022 - you can watch the progress of the build on our FB page Drifter’s Claim Corn Island.
This is NOT through a charity. This is the dream of two people (Mike & Jo) with a VISION to build this house, and with YOUR help, we are now making it become a reality!
Min. 1800 words to a max of 2500 words.
Jo will help you with your chapter to incorporate the plan you had for your life, what you desired to have happen, how you were against the odds (what were the risks, roadblocks, why was it a seemingly impossible situation or endeavour), what methods, mindset, techniques you utilized to achieve your big goals /dreams /project, and what insights you realized along the way.
The reader will be taken on a journey through what you encountered, and also be able to learn insights and helpful techniques they could incorporate to achieve their own BIG vision, too.
It'll be like memorable "story-time" meets "self-help:" and could be potentially life-changing for the readers. Don't worry if you're not sure how to accomplish this - you'll get to learn!
Author entry fee: $500 US.
The sooner you are in, the more time you’ll have to write your chapter.
Jo is an author coach, has written her own full book (a best-seller), wrote a chapter in a collaboration published by a friend (it also became a best-seller), as well as led the collaboration Absolute Will (which became an international best-seller in only a few weeks after we launched). She will help each author with their chapter to make it the best it can be and something you will be proud of forever.
EXTENDED deadline to join: June 30, 2022.
Once the final author is in, there will be a 45-day deadline to submit your first draft.
Jo provides specific writing prompts and will work with you every step of the way so that your final version is exactly what you want it to be — publish-ready, inspirational, and on-point with your personal brand and messaging.
CREDIBILITY: You get to become a published author, and most likely, a BEST-SELLING published author. The instant credibility this achievement provides is invaluable for anyone seeking to build/expand their personal brand or business.
FRAMEWORK: You'll be given writing prompts to help get your chapter outlined and started in a way that fits this book theme and yet gives you the freedom to tell the most compelling parts of your story. The personal growth our authors experienced by being in Absolute Will was inspirational and is one of our goals/intentions with Absolute Vision as well.
COACHING: Jo will coach you along the way to help guide your writing process and help you make the most of this opportunity to share your experience with the world. Yes, the world! We already have authors from FOUR countries and we will each be promoting the book to our networks!
CONNECTION/RELATIONSHIPS/COMMUNITY: There is a private FB group set up so all the authors can get to know each other and where Jo will answer questions and provide writing tips throughout this process. You'll get to know each of your co-authors through every step of this exciting journey together. We currently have writers in Absolute Vision from across Canada, across the United States (coast to coast, Rhode Island to California and Hawaii), as well as South Africa, and Bulgaria! You will also be building your OWN connections, relationships and community by promoting to your circle that you were selected to be in this incredible collaboration opportunity because of your own story and how you want to inspire others.
KNOWLEDGE OF THE PROCESS: You'll get a glimpse into the publishing process as Jo shares (in the group) what she's doing and why (in the context of this collaboration). You'll get to see behind the scenes which can be helpful if you're considering someday writing and publishing your own book.
MARKETING: We will provide marketing graphics and social media wording ideas once we start promoting.
EDITING & COVER: The book will be professionally formatted and edited, with a professionally designed cover by the same artist who designed Absolute Will, and all publishing costs will be covered to get the book published on the Amazon global marketplace.
Your only cost to become a published author is the initial author entry fee up front, and if you are doing this for business promo purposes, you can write off the fee as an advertising expense.
PUT THE BOOK ON YOUR WEBSITE: Each author will also be provided with an electronic copy of the final book to sell on their website, and authors may purchase copies of the paperback from Amazon at discounted “author pricing” (Amazon's printing cost) to do book signings or sell signed copies.
If you would like to apply to be in Absolute Vision send an email through the link below with a brief overview of your story.
Please include a few details about the obstacles you've faced, what you envisioned/created/decided for yourself instead, and what your extraordinary life looks like now!
