Kim Brittingham's Summary

You’re the inspiration. I’m the wordsmith. Together, we can set minds on fire.

You’ve got a message and you’re just about to burst.

Maybe you’re an aspiring professional speaker with a gift for transforming stagnant perceptions.

Maybe you’re a coach or trainer whose teachings are growing — and blowing — people’s minds.

Maybe you’re so passionate about your area of expertise that your insights go beyond anything we know today.

Meanwhile, you know the world has its leaders, gurus, and go-to experts who are so in-demand, they have to fight for time out of the limelight. And that’s exactly where you want to be.

So what do they have that you don’t?

Chances are, your favorite speakers and gurus have branded content out in the world, helping them build and nurture a strong platform. They’ve probably authored multiple books. Maybe they publish fresh blog posts every week, issue a monthly newsletter, and offer free special reports for download from their website. You might even listen to their podcast, or watch their video series. And they’ve always got something of value to offer on Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn. They’re even writing guest posts on other influencers’ blogs.

Where do they find time to create all this stuff?

Maybe they’re working with me.

You can, too.

Let’s partner up and create your unique brand of:

- Books and ebooks

- Blog posts

- Newsletters

- Special reports, white papers

- Podcast scripts

- Video scripts

- Workbooks, teaching materials and seminar hand-outs

- Speeches, and much more.

Oh, I almost forgot -- I'm also the author of two commercially published books: Read My Hips (2011, Random House) and Write That Memoir Right Now (2013, AudioGo).
