The average book today sells 250-500 copies per year and 3,000 copies in its lifetime. With those types of sales, it's hard to have an impact, influence people, create a movement, or instigate change on any level--personal, organizational, global.
Yet, some authors manage to have a huge impact. They build large communities around themselves, their work, their causes, and, therefore, inspire change in many people. And they sell more than the average number of books.
We call these writers Authors of Change. You can become an Author of Change, too.
You signed up for this list, so we assume you have an interest in doing just that--authoring change on some level--personal, organizational or global. But it takes more than just having a great idea or being a good writer to author change. To become an Author of Change, you also must be willing to be:
If you lack any of these qualities, you must either create a team to help you or you must embark on a path of change yourself first; you must author change in your own life so you embody the qualities of an Author of Change. Then you can author change in the lives of others.
The world, indeed, needs change. And everyone has something of value to offer--including you. Even if you author a short booklet or ebook--or a blog--your passionate, authentic, inspiring message that moves people to action can make a difference. If you feel it is your purpose or your mission to make a difference in the world, and if you want to do so with your written words, we encourage you to consider getting your message out now.
And if you are really serious and want to be one of those people who has true impact, who can author change on a wide scale, consider authoring a book about change.
Don't wait. Do it now. The world needs Authors of Change.

The program consists of the Three ACT Steps. These 3 Steps transform you into an Author of Change by helping you prepare to become a a change agent and to inspire others to change as well. Each step corresponds with one of the three months of the program. For each step you will end up with one or more ACT plans.
I. Author of Change in Your Life
As Ghandi said, you must first be the change you want to see. Even if you have already experienced life altering change and you now want to inspire others to similar change, you likely have some steps to take before you are ready to become that type of leader or promoter of this work. You must transform yourself into a change agent.
In this module you will go through a self-assessment process to discover how you want or need to change so you can inspire others. You will evaluate yourself for success as an Author of Change. This module is also appropriate if you simply want to create personal change in your own life so you can more effectively help others do the same.
II. Author of Change in the World
This module focuses on how you can take your message out into the world effectively. It asks you to think outside the box and consider creative modes of communicating and spreading your message and to begin using social media to inspire change. You are asked to transform yourself into a leader, a community builder and a communicator in a variety of ways.
III. Author of a Change-Inspiring Book
This module focuses on authoring a life changing, world changing book. You will learn how to evaluate your book for success from idea to full content plan. You will put together a business plan for your book that can be used for self-publishing or for a book proposal, if you want to pursue traditional publishing. You will explore ways to get your book written quickly and effectively.
