A CUPPA WITH...... Bev Ryan

Bev Ryan believes “smart women publish” and that “self-publishing is a powerful tool for women to position themselves as leaders in their field”. She has seen first-hand how writing your own non-fiction book can result in not only an amazing self-discovery journey but also the road to great things… and increased profits! Join us for an exciting edition of A Cuppa WithTM with publishing manager and book mentor, Bev Ryan.

Bev says that when she talks with clients and others who have successfully published a quality book, they all agree that they have enjoyed most, if not all, of the following results. They have:

  • Gained authority and exposure as an expert in their field – the writing process added enormously to their knowledge.
  • Attracted more clients and professional contacts – their credibility is assured with a well-written book.
  • Opened doors to more opportunities and alliances – their success has attracted successful people.
  • Added exciting elements such as speaking, seminars, e-courses etc. around their book topic.
  • Developed further income streams and business potential – creativity fosters bigger and better ideas.

I believe the greatest reason of all to publish is that it leads to a huge personal high! Your self-confidence blooms, and it truly is a notable achievement you can be so very proud of, and one that impacts people near and dear to you as well.


I see and hear many would-be authors struggle with some or all of the following thoughts:

  • I can’t do that – only writers write books.
  • My peers will be very critical if I write a book and position myself as an expert in my field.
  • People will find out I am an imposter and don’t actually know as much as they seem to think I do.
  • Everyone else in my industry knows what I know – I have nothing original to say.
  • I am struggling to get clients – I should lower my prices instead of investing in a book.
  • I am getting too old for this – everyone wants to work with younger people, so why bother with a book now.

Bev guarantees that through the process of collating, researching, writing and publishing your own book you will experience an amazingly effective professional and personal development program all rolled into one.

It is truly a transformational experience!
