Are you thinking about writing your first book? Do you want to switch your teaching and writing focus? Do you wonder how you can turn your passion into profit? This podcast is for you.

From compilation books to cookbooks, with titles ranging from Kill the Elevator Speech to Daily Business Meeting with God, Felicia Slattery’s writing experience is widely diversified. As an educator and public speaker, she has a gift for sharing what she’s learned. This podcast is a virtual mini-course in how to write that first book and how to turn life experiences, hobbies, and even chance remarks into books.

If one phrase characterizes Felicia’s approach, it’s her ability to seize opportunities. When a publisher asked her to act as an advance reader for a new book, she agreed and asked the publisher if he’d be interested in hearing about an idea she had for a book. He responded positively, and before long; she had a book contract.

Initially, the pandemic flattened Felicia’s business, which was largely based on public speaking and teaching and coaching others to do the same. She switched gears and began teaching online. Seeing that the platform from which she was teaching also featured cooking classes, she used her love of cooking to break out into a new area of teaching, writing, and publishing. To promote her new passion, she also launched a successful YouTube channel.

If you have a question, Felicia has an answer. You’ll want to experience this Writing to get Business podcast more than once
