More than just a book.
This is how your story changes the world.

This is for all those who have a story or book idea burning within.

The idea that’s begging to be released into the world, waiting for you to write every word, to bring it to life, to inspire and empower others, to get its message to those who need it the most.

Why do you keep it locked up? 

What’s holding you back from finishing it and setting it free? 

If you are…

  • Dreaming about writing a book, but doubting you have the time while prioritizing everything else in your day above it… or
  • Can’t shake a specific book idea, but you worry people won’t care about what you have to share… or
  • Scared to call yourself a writer, let alone an author, because of the attached expectations or worry that you’re not good enough… or
  • Caught in the web of perfectionism that keeps you from seeing how impactful your writing actually is… or
  • Committing (and re-committing) to completing your book at least three different times, but it’s still not finished…

…then you, my friend, are a Wavering Writer- one that is more focused on the 98% of the doing rather than the final 2% of the being. The 98% that is caught up in a repeating cycle of pains associated with writing your story (no time, no energy, it’s not perfect enough, not knowing what to do next, thinking no one cares about what you have to say, thinking too much about what someone thinks about what you have to say, worried people will view you differently after they read it, or scared to dive in deep and see what may be revealed once you pull back the veil).

If you’re spending all your energy focused on the doing (and never completing it), what you’re actually questioning is, “Is this worth it?”

Is this worth the energy? Is this worth the time invested? Is this worth putting other things on hold to complete? Is it worth investing in to get the help I need? Is it worth sharing to receive feedback? Is it worth putting it out into the world? Is it worth how my life may or may not change once others start to read it?

So instead, you carry around a boulder that equals the weight of the whole world. Sometimes, it’s suffocating. You get to the 98% of “almost” but never make it all the way.

That final 2%– the part you’re not focusing on— that’s the part that frees your words. That’s the part that’s focused on the impact of your incredible story. That’s the part that knows writing it is only a small part of the greater journey to come. That’s the part that can see the people whose lives you will change forever. The part that recognizes how important your story is and how it needs to be shared.

When you let go those fears and concerns that are blocking your truest words from flowing out, you can feel the tingles in your soul, the flutter in your stomach, the goosebumps lining your arms telling you that your story will change someone’s life. All you have to do is write from the heart.

There’s a deeper reason you’re on this page right now. There’s a part of you that knows doing things the way you have been doing them hasn’t gotten you very far.

Your soul is saying, “It’s time for a change.” And the world is saying, “We’re ready for your story.”

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”

― Maya Angelou, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

A book can change a life forever.

We believe that if an idea has come to you, it’s a privilege. There’s a reason for it, a reason why it chose you.

Now it’s your duty to bring it to life and position it so it reaches the people it was meant to help, inspire, and empower.

And we know how to help you do it.

So if writing feels more like a part of your soul than just a hobby, you’re in the right place. It’s all right in front of you, presenting you with an open door to finally leave the wavering writer behind and step into that confident, wave-making author.

SHARE YOUR STORY

With weekly writing sessions and monthly writing challenges, you’ll always have the accountability to writing your book. The Soul Writer Framework was designed on the exploration of your life journey and weaving the pinnacle moments and transformation to the book you write so that your message reflects that of your soul and reaches the people it was meant to reach. Your idea is brilliant and we don’t want it to miss the target. 

OFFER YOUR MESSAGE

Weekly live coaching sessions help you write, revise, market, publish, and launch your book so that you reach every goal in your author path. We also bring in guest speakers who are experts in their fields to further provide more insight to your learning. As believers in the power of people’s strengths, this program highlights your talents and passions so that your book is another part of your overall mission and purpose in this world. 

UPLIFT YOUR UNIQUENESS

No author path is the same, and that’s a belief we operate from in everything we teach. We want you to truly tap into your values and most authentic vision so that writing this book leaves a permanent mark on this world. The Soul Writer community will empower, motivate, and inspire you to do things your way and not the ways of others. Your authentic self will captivate the audience your book was meant for and your book will feel like a natural part of you- as it was intended to do. 

LEAD YOUR IMPACT

We want your readers to turn into your biggest fans, and if you’re on a mission to take your message to the next level, we’ll show you how to turn readers into lifelong clients. That’s why we put a great emphasis on the full author journey and not just writing a book—some of those other activities count more in the success of your reach and impact, but many people miss them. We’ll help you with the techniques and strategies that attract the right people to you, all by using your greatest values.

FAQs

Is publishing included in this?

No, we will walk you through the different publishing options and help you choose the one that best fits your goals and vision. If you choose to go with Burning Soul Press, it will be a seamless transaction since we already know your vision and goals from working with you as you write your book. If you think self-publishing may be in the cards for you, you can receive full self-publishing guidance in our Mentorship program.

What’s the difference between book coaching and ghostwriting?

Ghostwriting is essentially someone else writing your book for you. There are interviews so the writer can understand your voice, tone, stories, etc. and notes that you give the writer so they can compose your book.

A book coach gives you the tips and tricks to help you write your story. They’ll help you find the words and revise it as needed, but you ultimately write every single word, making it 100% your own.

What are the primary differences between the Soul Writer Journey and the Wave-Making Mentorship program?

With the Soul Writer Journey, it’s great support educating you on how to do things that will make you a successful author. In the Wave-Making Mentorship, we work alongside you, providing more guidance, support, and feedback through all stages of being an author (writing, revising, publishing, marketing, PR).
Lauren Eckhardt, the CEO of Burning Soul Press and a best-selling author and ghostwriter, is only coaching students in the Mentorship program. She uses the same methods she applies to her selective 1:1 Entrepreneurial Impact program just at a fraction of the cost since it’s done in a group environment within the Mentorship.

What if I don’t know which option is best for me?

Schedule a call with one of our Journey Coaches and they’ll help you through!
