FAQs

Will you be offering this course again soon?

The next course will start in November 2017.

To what extent will my book be promoted?

This varies for each course. Currently, you will be eligible to have your book featured in our Amazon store if you publish it by the end of the course.

Additional opportunities for publicity and exposure are not guaranteed but may include the chance to be featured in the IIN Blog, on the Launch Your Dream Book website, on a live webinar, or at a live conference.

Are there any prerequisites for enrolling?

The only requirement is that you are a graduate or student of the IIN Health Coach Training Program.

How much time will I need to dedicate to this course?

The more you put into this course, the more you will get out of it! While the content is organized into manageable segments that are easy to digest, you can anticipate to dedicate anywhere from 3-10 hours a week to the steps involved in writing, publishing, and promoting your book.

In addition, we recommend that you connect with our staff and classmates in the course Facebook group and on our bi-weekly live support calls.

Some other factors that may adjust your time commitment:

  • How much of your book you’ve already written (if any)
  • How much background you have in business, marketing, PR, and branding
  • How much you want to interact with the moderators and our community forum throughout the course

What if I don’t like the course? Is it refundable?

Yes. You’ll have 2 weeks after the start of the course to determine if the program is right for you or not.

Note: To be eligible for the refund, you must show that you took action through course participation. You must participate in the live calls and course assignments since action in this program is what gets results.

My friends and I want to write a book together. Can we join together, share the materials, and split the cost of tuition?

Unfortunately, we cannot offer a shared tuition at this time.

What if I don’t have a book idea yet? Will the course help me develop an idea?

Yes. While most of our students have a concept in mind when they enroll, the first portion of the course focuses on helping you to refine your topic, envision your ideal reader, and get clear on your “beyond the book” goals.

Additionally, the coaching you’ll receive throughout the program will help you to flesh out your ideas every step of the way.

What costs can I anticipate beyond tuition?

This course is a self-publishing course. We provide you with all the tools, resources, and accountability to get your book published.

However, you will be responsible for covering your own editing, design, and other service costs associated with taking your book to fruition. The amount you invest in these services will vary depending on your budget and the scope of your book.

Are there teachers other than Joshua?

Joshua is the primary teacher of the course.

Additionally, the course contains lectures from guest experts in the writing and publishing industry, including Lorraine Miller, Andrea Beaman, Leigh Newman, and many others.

Is this course strictly for books about health or nutrition?

No. This course is for anyone that wants to write a book, period. In previous classes, we’ve guided students to publish cookbooks, self-help books, children’s books, novels, and more.

No matter what your topic, we will teach to write, publish, and market the book of your dreams.

Do I need to have experience with writing to take this course?

This course is meant to help you publish a book to give you credibility and enhance your career. Writing experience is a plus, but it is not required. We will teach you how to work with an editor and refine as you go. You can also choose to work with a ghostwriter, or someone who will write your book for you.

This is a great way to get your message out there in writing if writing is not your forte. No matter what path you choose, we’ll support you in getting your book done and published.

I’m almost done with / have finished my book. Will this course be worth it for me?

While most of our students are at the beginning stages of writing their books when they enroll, we have had success helping other students refine and market books they already created.

The course is setup to not only help you write and publish your book, but also market your book in a way that aligns with your “beyond the book” goals. We will help you build a platform for your book and a media presence. View the curriculum here.

What if I can’t make the live calls? Are they recorded?

Yes. We know you’re busy. That’s why we’ve set up the course to be flexible so that you don’t have to worry about missing a single bit of information.

All live coaching calls will be recorded and uploaded the very same night. If you can’t attend, send in your questions before. You’ll get full access to all the recordings.

What technology do I need in order to take this course?

The course is set up in the Learning Center which you are already familiar with if you enrolled in the Health Coach Training Program later than May 2014.

If you are not already familiar with the Learning Center, it is an online platform similar to the OEF where modules are released on a weekly basis.

You can take this course on most devices (computer, iPad, tablet, etc.), as long as they support GoToWebinar and Facebook.

How much is tuition? Is there a payment plan option?

Tuition is $995 for students who pay the full amount upfront. We do offer 2 payments plan for those who would prefer to pay their tuition in installments. You can choose from 2 payments of $550 or 3 payments of $375. Your first payment will be due upon registration, and subsequent payments will be processed two months after the last payment.

OK, my questions are answered, and I’m ready to sign up. What do I do next?

Awesome. We’re excited to have you joining us. Your next step would be to enroll now or join the waitlist.
