Book to Brand® is an intensive two-day event designed for a small group of experts and entrepreneurs ready to write a powerful book that will take their careers to the highest level. Bestselling author and media personality Farnoosh Torabi leads the workshop, bringing together the top brass in publishing and media to share the best practices for writing, marketing and leveraging a winning book in today's market.
It’s just a couple years down the track. You’ve made quite the name for yourself. You’ve become a highly respected authority in your market. You’re constantly in demand for speaking engagements and sponsorships.
Companies and organizations will gladly pay top dollar to invite you to their events.
Television producers and magazine editors call upon you regularly for your advice and expertise. You may even have your own TV show, a syndicated column and a top-ranking podcast (or all three).
Put simply, you’re living a richer, fuller life… all on your own terms.
Sounds like a dream? It was for me…I was stuck between where my life actually was…and where I knew I could go.
But then the clouds parted...
AND I LEARNED WHAT IT TOOK TO STRIKE GOLD IN MY INDUSTRY:
Write a top-notch book that earns the attention of the media and top influencers
and leverage that book’s success to build your brand as the go-to expert in your field.
THE TOP QUESTION I GET ASKED FROM FRIENDS, COLLEAGUES, AND FANS IS –
“Farnoosh, how did you become YOU?”
In other words, how did you develop and grow your business and brand? How did you become a leading authority in your market?
For experts across all industries, there’s an insatiable appetite and desire to achieve more, better, greater. You want to help people – and as many people as possible. You know you have the skills, education and know-how to become trusted and influential thought leaders, coaches, speakers and consultants. You know you deserve a bigger paycheck.
You’re on the verge of greatness.
But you’re not sure how to get to the other side – the side where bigger and better opportunities are abundant. You become frustrated when you witness others with less credibility, less creativity, less passion, excel in those ways. You hear about industry peers landing high-paying speaking gigs. You flip on the Today Show and watch them share their perspectives and advice – and know you could have delivered better. You read their quotes in national press. You witness them land lucrative business opportunities.
And all the while you think, “Why not me?”
You know that you’re beyond capable of building a thriving business and personal brand.
But how, exactly?
How do you grow your platform, enhance your credibility, expand your network, and implement the right strategies to successfully elevate your professional life?
How do you finally, once and for all,
reach the very top?
I’ve totally asked myself all of the above and more. I’ve been there. I know what it’s like to know you have a higher purpose in life. To want to help and connect with people on a bigger scale, on a more significant platform.
As a TV producer in my 20s covering the financial world, I was desperate to end my stressful work cycle that had me working 70, 80 hours per week for a company that was unapologetically demanding and greedy. And rude. And impatient. I was new on the job (and, admittedly, had my fare share of screw ups) but the tension, stress and belittling had gotten out of hand.
To top it off, I had been to the doctor four times in six months to discuss my severe stomach twists and turns, my light-headedness and constant fatigue…all side-effects of being sleep-deprived, malnourished and anxiety-ridden. “Oh you work in news,” the docs kept telling me. “It’s par for the course.”
I knew I had to pay my dues, but this wasn’t exactly what I had in mind. I wanted out.
My ultimate dream was to teach everyday people how to transform their financial lives. Not reading earnings reports and writing stories about inflation and gross domestic product. But by becoming a trusted financial expert who could show Americans how to live their richest, happiest lives. I wanted to travel around the country and share my advice, be in front of large crowds and speak from the heart. I wanted to make an impact. Big time.
After all, others were doing it. Why not me?
What did these people have that I didn’t? I had a great education, a strong reporting grip on all things business and money. I was passionate and extremely hard-working. What was missing? And how long was I going to have to wait to get my break?
The answer was literally flying in my face every day.
As a producer in New York City, I interviewed successful authors all the time as part of my job. These authors always had so much going on and were deeply respected within their fields. They almost always worked for themselves and had diverse careers as speakers, coaches, TV personalities and more.
I wondered, “Should I write a book?”
Two years after that epiphany, my first book finally hit bookshelves. So Money: Live Rich Even When You’re Not debuted in the spring of 2008 and, as I dreamed, took on a life of its own in the very best way possible. It was featured in Glamour, Marie Claire, The Today Show, CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, USA Today and more.
The book provided me an elevated platform from which I could reach new audiences and strike a diverse mix of high-profile work. It led to two more bestselling books, starring in makeover shows including Real Simple, Real Life on TLC and The Bank of Mom and Dad on soapNET, a Webby-nominated video series on Yahoo!, lucrative branding partnerships, speaking engagements across the country and a license to work from virtually anywhere (though, I still happily reside in New York!)
I went from being an overworked financial journalist earning $18 per hour (before taxes) to becoming a bestselling author and:
• A leading financial expert who’s made over 100 guest appearances on the NBC Today Show, as well as ABC's Good Morning America, The Early Show on CBS, Fox News, CNN and every major network and news program.
• The host of my own TV series on CNBC, Follow the Leader.
• A multi-platform financial expert whose advice and work spans TV, print, digital, radio and podcasts.
• A best selling author whose written multiple books endorsed by Tony Robbins, Jim Cramer and Barbara Corcoran.
• A highly-sought after speaker who gets paid up to $35,000 for a one-hour talk.
• An in-demand brand partner who’s landed multiple six-figure deals with a wide variety of Fortune 500 brands and hot, startup ventures.
• A well-paid contributor at leading publications including Money, Redbook, Glamour & Marie Claire.
• And recently, I received the highest invitation to contribute to O, The Oprah Magazine as its resident financial columnist.
In short, I went from sitting at a desk, isolated, writing boring news articles until midnight, living in a small studio, and eating canned tuna to make ends meet… to earning millions of dollars over the years performing work that not only excites me, but that truly helps make a difference in others’ lives.
In one week, I may go from being a guest on Good Morning America, to giving a live talk in front of thousands, to interviewing Tony Robbins and Arianna Huffington for my podcast. Other days, I get to work from home…in my PJs.
And now, when people wonder how I got my start, I don’t want to just share my story.
I want to teach them.
I want to guide and mentor them.
I want to say…
You can do this, too. Here’s how.
For a limited time only, I’m inviting you to be a part of my exclusive, live 2-day intensive workshop in New York City happening Jan 27-28, 2020.
Stemming from the lessons shared in my 6-month coaching program and previous workshops, I’m designing a high-impact two-day event for a very small group of select individuals.
Attendees will have demonstrated they’re ready to take their careers to the highest of heights. They are on their way to writing an important book (or may have just published one) with a vital message that’s meant to help people. They are on their way to establishing a solid brand and a thriving business.
They just need to make inroads in a highly competitive market and be seen as the go-to experts in their fields. They need key relationships with the right influencers who will gladly help them spread the word about their message.
As an exclusive guest at my Book to Brand® intensive I will to teach you everything I’ve learned about publishing a book, marketing it successfully to gain publicity and recognition and leveraging that book to elevate your career and generate more money, more influence and more fulfillment in your work.
