Women’s Business Club Author Hub: Karen Williams

I launched my business in 2006, and in 2009, I accidentally wrote my first book. I never set out to become an author. I wrote the book to help others who were starting out in business, so they wouldn’t go through some of the difficulties I faced. I realised that I had an important message to share and a book was a great way to do this. Although I said never again, my fifth book, Book Marketing Made Simple, launches this spring!

Writing a book is a great business building tool, although there are certainly challenges in doing it. It’s easy to doubt yourself, wonder if your writing is good enough, and many people get stuck with the process. You also need to be willing to be vulnerable and authentic; as you can’t shy away from the limelight once you’ve published a book.

Over the last eight years, I’ve moved from being a business coach to a book mentor. A couple of years ago, some of my clients asked for my support to write and publish their books, and I made the transition. I now work with business owners (predominantly coaches, therapists and consultants) to help them to turn their idea to a published book that helps them to build their business. Earlier this year, I set up Librotas Books to support them with the design, distribution and publication of their books.

My passion is to help my clients to turn their knowledge into a focused and well planned book that helps them to attract more clients and develop their business, so that they can do more of what they love!

I Did It In My Pyjamas
Angela De Souza

 Angela De Souza says there are few rules when it comes to setting up and growing a successful business, and even some of those can be broken if they stifle your creativity or approach to working. In this book she shares her journey of how she built the Women’s Business Club from nothing to the huge national success it is today, nuts, bolts and all. Angela has written a book that is quite unlike other books about starting and growing a business – though packed with tips and advice it is not so much of a ‘how to do it’ book but rather a ‘how I did it’. In a style that is both accessible and refreshing, she covers topics such as facing opposition, raising children, tackling fear and managing depression while building a business. The book is candid, honest and packed with tips on how she did it in her pyjamas!
