How Writing Your Heartfelt Book Will Spread Your Vision and Wisdom to a Wider Audience with Nikki Starcat Shields

Do you have a message to share and feel that writing a book would help get that message out to more people?

Are you ready to write a book, but don’t know how to get started or think you don’t have time?

Or perhaps you’ve considered writing a book, but feel like you aren’t the expert on the topic, so you shouldn’t do it.

If any of that rings true, this episode of  She Grows is for you.

Today’s guest, author and book midwife, Nikki Starcat Shields shares the #1 reason most people don’t get started writing their book (and the real reason that secretly hides beneath the surface). She offers practical tips on how to get started, and dives into her creative process for birthing two books.

We explore how to cultivate a writing habit and how to create a ritual around your writing practice. Nikki offers some some daily practices to help you move past your imposter syndrome, get started writing, and build momentum. Finally, she explains how publishing a book can help you spread your vision as a soul-guided entrepreneur to a wider audience so you can make a bigger impact.
