Course Description

In this course you’ll learn that ideas are everywhere. And I teach you how to capture them!

Those ideas are often worth money. You may not recognized a good idea when you see one, but I explain how to become aware of them and how to take action when you do.

I explain how ideas are formed in your mind... there’s brain science that will help you produce your ideas when you discover how they are formed.

There are many rich areas of ideas in your life and I discuss how to tap into them.

  • Your life experience
  • Your formal training
  • Your work
  • Your hobbies
  • People you know

There are even so-called “Evergreen ideas” that you can tap into, and I explain what they are and how you can use them to your benefit.

This course is not limited to nonfiction authors. All the concepts apply to both fiction and nonfiction idea-generation... but I do have a complete lesson for fiction writers.

I discuss how you can shape the ideas the idea ideas you get... that’s essential to getting a solid book idea.
Importantly, you’ll learn how to test your ideas for profit potential.

This course also offers something you won’t often find... a strategy about what to do if a good idea goes bad.
Invest your time in this course. You’ll be glad you did.
