Kristen Ulmer The Art of Fear

Kristen Ulmer The Art of Fear

Melanie and Jenn interview Kristen Ulmer the author of The Art of Fear. Kristen is thought leader, master facilitator and fear specialist who radically challenges existing norms around the subject of this deeply misunderstood emotion. Starting out as a mogul specialist on the US Ski team, Kristen more notoriously became recognized as being the best female big mountain extreme skier in the world, a status she kept for 12 years. Known for enormous cliff jumps and you-fall-you die descents, she became sponsored by the likes of Red Bull, Ralph Lauren, and Nikon. Her mastery of other danger sports including paragliding, ice and rock climbing, kiteboarding, adventure mountain biking, and flying trapeze also gained her the outdoor industry vote as most extreme woman athlete in North America, beating all danger-sports stars, not just skiers.

We all feel fear. Yet we are often taught to ignore it, overcome it, push past it. But to what benefit? This is the essential question that guides Kristen Ulmer’s remarkable exploration of our most misunderstood emotion in The Art of Fear.

Once recognized as the best extreme skier in the world (an honor she held for twelve years), Ulmer knows fear well. In this conversation-changing book, she argues that fear is not here to cause us problems—and that in fact, the only true issue we face with fear is our misguided reaction to it (not the fear itself)…..

Excerpt from CalliopeWritingCoach.com

I’ve signed with many prestigious literary agencies and top deal making agents.  Within days of conceiving the idea to write my first book I signed with my first agent who then sold my story to Bantam Books for six figures within the week.  My first book went from a 5-page synopsis to plastering windows and lining shelves in bookstores around the world in four months.

Navigating past the slush-pile and through the door to publication is my super-power.  If you live by the notion that securing an agent and a publishing contract is a mystery, subject to dumb luck, then that will be your likely result.

Landing an agent and seeing your work published is a predictable, do-able feat.  What writers experience as the critical nature of the publishing industry, laced with rejection letters, with impossible odds of being published lies not so much in level of writing talent, but in the quality of coaching they’ve received.  Learning to get your work published is very much like learning to swing a bat so that you make contact with the ball.  With Calliope Writing Courses you elevate your performance such that you make PREDICTABLE, EFFECTIVE contact with the ball.  Success in writing becomes probable with effective coaching.

Book Sales Data Breakdown

Book Sales Data Breakdown

Book Sales Data Breakdown – Days and Hours

I’ve been looking forward to this post for a while, so I’m excited to release it as a New Year’s gift for 2010. I’m going to provide a quick breakdown with charts of book sales data with consideration to three criteria:

The following data encompasses information collected from June ’09 through Dec ’09. There was no consideration for newly added books (daily occurrence) as over a long enough period this should provide some balance. There also is no consideration for books with sales ranks < 1000, even though these rankings have their book sales data estimated with less accuracy. In other words, the data is not completely flawless, though flaws are shared equally in all categories and thus are unlikely to effect the overall trends, which is the focus of this study.

Finally, this only includes Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk as these domains have the most activity as well as the longest history within NovelRank. Now, without further adieu…

Book Sales Data by Days of the Month

I love graphs. I don’t think there is much to say for this category, so let’s start with the charts:
Sales Per Day of the Month - Amazon.com
Sales Per Day of the Month - Amazon.co.uk

This data was collected near the end of December and to ensure it was not too heavily skewed, it was limited to June through November ’09. What I think is completely shocking is that nobody likes the 6th of the month. In the UK, the middle of the month is hot, but overall both charts show a trend towards the end of the month for shopping for books.

Book Sales Data by Days of the Week

Sales Per Day of the Week - Amazon.com & Amazon.co.uk

This chart was altered slightly as the numbers were almost 4 times higher for sales on Amazon.com over Amazon.co.uk, but only to allow a closer comparison between both of the line graphs. While the UK line is smoother due to the lower volume, the overall trending is the same. Monday is the largest shopping day for books, followed by another spike on Thursday. Completely surprising to me is that Saturday’s are not a day to go shopping for books!

Book Sales Data by Hours of the Day

One quick note about the times. The times are in PST for both Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk. Thus, there is an -8 hour shift for UK times. Thus, 00 for Amazon.com is 16 for Amazon.co.uk (midnight in both locations) while 12 for Amazon.com is 04 for Amazon.co.uk (noon in both locations). This is a poor oversight on my part to not correct for this in the graphing directly.
Book Sales Data per Hour - Amazon.com
Book Sales Data per Hour - Amazon.co.uk

The buying cycle is very different for both sites/location. Granted, there maybe some error based upon Amazon’s failure to update sales rank data every single hour sometimes, notably for Amazon.com. This is a limitation of being dependent on Amazon’s updates to actually accumulate the data. However, I have not compiled (because I’m not collecting it in a way that is easy to analyze, yet) an outage log for each domain. I will begin tracking that information in 2010 and come back with more results in Q3 of 2010.

Final Thoughts

I’d like to approach this data again with a bit more scrutiny in 2010 and include the graphs I mentioned previously. I would definitely appreciate feedback in the comments below regarding the data itself and considerations for making the data more useful or accurate (I’m not a statistician). However, I can say that your book marketing efforts are best spent Sunday night or Monday morning near the end of the month to maximize book sales potential. Without the numbers to back it up (just an observation), if you sell less than 24 books a month, you will notice that a sale grants greater weight and exposure to your book (thanks to category rankings on Amazon) and typically lead to more sales in clusters. I hope to gather some data regarding number of sales after X number of days without a sale to back this up, but that requires a lot of data analysis which will have to wait till Q3 2010.

Thanks in advance, and I hope this proves at the very least interesting! Consider supporting NovelRank by tracking your book and sharing it with your friends!

PUBLISH AND PROSPER: HOW WRITING A BOOK CAN BOOST BUSINESS

PUBLISH AND PROSPER: HOW WRITING A BOOK CAN BOOST BUSINESS

 

by Julie Bawden Davis

Writer/Author/Publisher/Speaker, Garden Guides Press

If you get published in your field, you can cement your status as an expert, increase customer respect and, ultimately, grow your business. Here’s how to turn this page.

soon found himself with almost more business and media attention than he could handle.SEPTEMBER 27, 2013 When his book on a groundbreaking way to look at ADD/HD was released in 2000, Dr. Kevin Ross Emery soon found himself with almost more business and media attention than he could handle.

“People began contacting me to see about working with them and their children,” says Ross, author of Managing The Gift: Alternative Approaches for Attention Deficit Disorder

7 Reasons You Should Write A Book For Your Business

7 Reasons You Should Write A Book For Your Business

Let’s face it, there are a lot of small businesses out there and you need a way to stand out. Writing a professional business book can give you instant credibility and it’s surprisingly achievable with digital technology to reach a global audience with your words. Attention is the first step in the sales funnel and a book is a great way to get you and your business noticed.

Here are 7 more reasons you should write a book for your business.

1. Demonstrate your expertise

You’ve spent years gathering your knowledge in a specific niche. You have notes and seminars, training programs and articles as well as a lot of know-how in your head but how do you quickly and easily prove your ability? A book with your name on front establishes you as the expert and provides an easily consumable version of your knowledge.

2. Increase your credibility and status

Authors are respected because they have achieved the concrete goal of publishing their work. People look at you differently when you say you’re an author. This increases your credibility in the market and will also give you more confidence in promoting your business.

3. Solidify and articulate your knowledge

You may have perfected your one-line elevator pitch but writing a book gives you the opportunity to expand and fully express your story. Business books are no longer dry and boring. They contain plenty of personal stories and anecdotes so you can share the unique aspects you bring to your niche. This also gives people a chance to know, like and trust you which is a key component in whether they will hire you or recommend you to others.

4. Expand opportunities for media and speaking

If you have a physical book it can act as a business card, demonstrating your ability to speak coherently on your topic. This is useful for media as there is existing credibility and a focused topic they can interview you about. A book is also recommended if you want to create or expand your own speaking business. The most highly paid speakers have multiple books associated with the topics they speak on and speaking is a great way to bring new people into your business.

5. Create multiple streams of income

You can sell your book online or at your live speaking events. You can also use the book as the basis of a larger product line to expand income streams. The book is your entry level information but you can also have an online multi-media course that expands the material, plus a full day workshop and 1:1 coaching around the topic. People might not be willing to go straight for the higher priced product but they will likely part with a smaller amount to read your book.

6. Grow your business internationally

If you market your books to a wider audience, you can attract new people to your business. They may read your book and then want to investigate your professional services further. You can easily and cheaply publish print books as well as ebooks on Amazon.com. With print on demand technology, you can sell books to the huge US market as well as other countries.

7. The book you write will change your life

Many people have a dream of writing a book, but that dream can now become a concrete goal. You probably started your business because you are passionate about something and want to change people’s lives. You have a story that needs to be told. Well, your voice is important and your words can be heard if you get them out there.  In these days of digital printing, you can achieve your goal of writing a book even with a small budget. So state your goal, and get writing!

Make 2017 the year your business stands out from the crowd.
