Book coaching from a business journalist of 25 years.
I help experts with an idea that’s like an itch they must scratch. Together, we shape that idea and, following my proven framework, my clients write a book that puts the author in authority.
As a professional business writer, I’ve written something like 1.3 million words over the last 25 years. As a business journalist, my writing reached 40,000 readers a week for 14 years. My byline is familiar to readers of the Australian Financial Review, Smart Company, BRW, Business Spectator, Women’s Agenda, ANZ Bluenotes and Company Director.
What that means to you is that I already know your readers. I know what they want. I know what they expect. And I have been giving them what they want and expect for more than two decades.
I had this idea for a book that I couldn’t get out of my head. Kath was able to extract the knowledge out of my head and drive momentum over a 12-week process that ultimately resulted in 55,000 words published by Wiley Business Books.
Soft Is The New Hard
I am a journalist. I know I can write. But Kath helped me determine the best book for my ideal audience. Even before the book was published, it added to my credibility and increased enquiries for training.
I just can’t thank Kath enough for her help with the book, the structure is fabulous. The service is fabulous. I recommend it highly.
Kath’s methodology tapped perfectly into how I work to get the ideas flowing freely. Her questions got me thinking more deeply, and I would never have found the structure without her. She’s so supportive and easy to work with.
Retail’s Last Mile
Kath was with me every step of the way — keeping me motivated and drawing on her experience to provide great advice and insights.
The amount of work we covered, and quality added by Kath in a short timeframe was incredible. Kath added so much value to my book. She simplified the process with professional yet down-to-earth advice.
Stop Doubting, Start Leading
I came to Kath after a couple of false starts because I didn’t know how to get it done. The book kept going back into the too-hard basket. Kath gave me momentum and asked smart questions, and her process really helped me get it out of my head. She was brilliant at drawing out areas where the book needed more clarity. She held me accountable and she knows what’s needed to make a successful business book.

Build Live Give
Kath’s structure is fantastic. If I’d been left to my own devices, it wouldn’t have been so tight. She also played a great devil’s advocate, so the book is much higher quality than it would be if I hadn’t had that. Also, having times in the diary and tasks to do drove me to finish the book. Without that, a three-month process would have taken me easily nine months.
Eat The Elephant
Every author needs a coach, and I chose Kath because of her experience as a business journalist with the AFR and BRW. From her, I learned how to write a business book that engages an audience following a very simple structured approach that gave me discipline.
