"AUTHOR ACCOUNTABILITY PACKAGE"
For clients of: Michael Hanrahan Publishing, Publish Central and Andrew Griffiths.

DURATION - Three one-on-one sessions*.
FREQUENCY - You choose, depending on publishing schedule
COST - $899* incl. GST

This unique offer is only available for authors who have engaged: Michael Hanrahan Publishing, Publish Central and Andrew Griffiths.

As an author of three bestselling award-winning books myself who has worked closely with both Michael Hanrahan and Andrew Griffiths over a number of years, I know how hard it is to complete the manuscript and submit on time.

To make it easier for you, the three-wise men (Michael, Andrew and I) put our collective heads together and have created this ‘Author Accountability Package’ which targets:

  1. Authors that would like to have full-accountability so they can complete their final manuscript on time.
  2. The author who is grappling to complete their final manuscript for lodgement on/before the publishing deadline.
  3. Struggling authors who have not yet meet any of the deadlines and just haven’t been able to finish… and they are finally ready to do something about it.

Each session is up to 60-minutes using either Zoom or Skype and you will have three-sessions* to finish your specific writing project to meet your publishing schedule. *Alternatively, we can easily modify the standard program by adding additional sessions to suit your needs and schedule. Naturally, the session cost will be adjusted.

My team and I will be on your case to regularly check in on your progress and we will drive you hard for completion. Each session you’ll know what needs to be done, your progress to date and how you’ll do it, so I will hold you to account to make sure you’re on target.

Because my usual Unboxing Session (see below) is not applicable to this package, we’ve created a free ‘planning session’ especially for you and we will do it over Zoom or Skype. Online for ‘planning’ will be either Michael or Andrew and me. Together, well will set deadlines and confirm our road ahead.

In the end, your final manuscript will be finished and ready for publishing, soon you will truly be a published author. Congratulations, that is quite an achievement. What’s your next book title, you know you can’t stop now?

Visit our Shop if you’d like to buy this package as a Gift Card (the gift of action) for someone special. It makes a great and unique gift idea for; Christmas, Birthday, Anniversary, Mothers Day, Fathers Day, Valentines Day or just because it’s a lovely thing to do, and who needs an occasion.

IT STARTS HERE...

UNBOXING SESSION
- Free and without obligation -

This session is a FREE and takes between 60-90 minutes. This will be conducted over Zoom or Skype. If you’ve got a lousy internet connection then we’ll talk over the mobile phone, I’ll call you.

In preparation, all you need is to have ready is your ‘To-Do List’ or at least, a list of what is on your business ‘wish list’ and be willing to openly and honestly, discuss it’s contents.

I’m always happy to travel to you if you’re in Melbourne metro, otherwise you’ll need to pick up my travel costs, which is pretty standard. Everything is doable, my travel policy and the way I operate is outlined within my Rules of Engagement (Service Agreement) see below.

You’ll get four important outcomes from my Unboxing Session:

  1. 60-90 minute obligation free discussion about your business; your goals, promises and commitments.
  2. We’ll examine your priorities
  3. Review your ‘To-Do List’. We’ll dig-in deep to discuss the most effective ways to implement & execute
  4. Together, we will create a plan and set realistic and achievable timelines

There is NO downside for you whatsoever, and so much to gain.

Doing nothing; sticking your head in the sand, procrastinating and hoping all will improve is NOT going to occur on its own (you knew that). Maintaining your current status quo only means you’ll miss important opportunities to grow, you’ll let those people around you down and that always costs you money.

Our Unboxing Session is also an opportunity to decide whether or not, I’m the right fit for you and whether you’d like to engage me for you and your business. You’ll get to better understand my skill set and experience, you’ll get a clear feeling for my energy levels and drive. Ensuring we connect is vital, our chemistry is important.

Let’s get into this, there’s a lot to do and there’s NO better time to take action than RIGHT NOW.

"The Best Accountability
Coach in the Game!"

-Andrew Griffiths, Best Selling Author & Speaker

Tracy-Sheen-768

I'm fantastic at generating the 'big picture' but when it comes to breaking that down into manageable steps that will see it come to life, well, not my strong point, And so, all these 'nice to haves' (like writing my book) go on the back burner for another time. Life happens, clients need attention... all the things we tell ourselves that prevent us from delivering on the things we know will actually promote us forward. Working with Darren over the last few months has allowed me to 'tick those boxes' on the seemingly small steps that are moving me closer every week to the outcomes I've said I want. No BS, no excuses, just honest talk and accountability. Realistic time frames and someone to act as a sounding board who 'gets it'. If you're sick of saying you want to achieve (insert random project) and your actually to step up and deliver on what you tell yourself then Darren is your guy.

I had my first accountability session with Darren last week. He first explored my business and my goals, and then we worked out what the most important things were for me to do next. Darren really helped me work out my priorities and make some important decisions about my business. I left the session feeling inspired and motivated, and most importantly with a plan for what to do next. I highly recommend Darren.
