Imagine how you would feel if 6 months from now:

Your cookbook proposal is complete
You attracted an agent or publisher
You are writing your recipes and manuscript
You are closer to your dream of writing a cookbook

Imagine if you had a supportive group to help you accomplish your cookbook writing goals

You can have that supportive group!

Aspiring cookbook authors are tired of working alone. They want support, accountability, and answers.

That's why I started the...

WHAT IS A MASTERMIND GROUP?

Let's start with some basics first. A Mastermind Group is an exclusive group of 5 to 8 individuals with a common purpose. They meet on a regular basis to support each other in the fulfillment of their goals. Together they celebrate successes, brainstorm ideas, provide accountability, and use the power of their combined brain power to set, clarify, and accomplish goals.

WHAT IS THE HUNGRY FOR A COOKBOOK MASTERMIND GROUP?

The Hungry For A Cookbook Mastermind Group will be comprised of small group of cookbook authors and the group facilitator Maggie Green.

We will meet in a virtual conference room twice every month from March through August on Mondays at either 1:00 - 2:30 PM EST or 7:00 - 8:30 PM EST.

At every meeting members receive a short lesson on topics related to writing a cookbook such as finding an agent or publisher, and then there is time for each member to share successes, set goals, brainstorm ideas, and hold each other accountable to their goals and plans.

The structured agenda and timed format ensures that everyone talks and that one person can't dominate the conversation.

WHAT MEMBERS SAY

I always knew I wanted to develop a cookbook for women with PCOS but always figured it would be too labor intensive, time consuming, and expensive to do. That is until I worked with Maggie Green. Through our coaching sessions, I was able to see that writing a cookbook was very doable and fun! Not only did I come away with all the tools I needed to write a cookbook, but a comprehensive time line, budget, and plan. I'm happy to say I am now the author of  The PCOS Nutrition Center Cookbook: 100 Easy and Delicious Whole Food Recipes to Beat PCOS. Thanks Maggie!

Since working with Maggie, she has taught me the ins and outs of cookbook writing in a way that makes a cookbook project seem manageable and accomplishable. Maggie has helped me come up with a schedule for my project, encouraged me through the difficulties, and held me accountable to meet my goals. With her vast experience, Maggie has also opened my eyes to new opportunities to help me build my platform and boost my credibility. This has helped me find my audience and become more appealing to agents and publishers. Maggie's expert knowledge of the cookbook writing and publishing is invaluable, but the best part is that Maggie fun to talk to and a joy to work with. Our coaching calls are one of the highlights of my week!

The knowledge I gained in Maggie's cookbook writing classes, was invaluable. When I was approached by a publisher who asked if I'd be interested in writing a cookbook, they wanted to see a proposal in two weeks. Their idea for the cookbook wasn't an idea I'd considered so I had nothing prepared for a proposal. Because of Maggie's tips and information, I was able to start from scratch and fully develop a proposal within the two week time frame. The published was pleased and awarded me a contract right away.

Currently, I'm working on my second cookbook. Not only did Maggie's coaching help me develop a winning proposal, it helped me write a winning cookbook which led to a subsequent cookbook.
