Sound like you?
And if you do write, you don’t build author platform, create a website and blog, see your writing as a business, or invest in your dream.
The result? You don’t become an author, successfully launch books, or earn a living from your work.
Instead, you watch other writers publish and succeed . . . and talk about how lucky they are. And you . . . well . . . you're just not lucky.
No one really understand how how tough it is for you . . . the overabundance of responsibilities and priorities . . . the lack of time, money, sleep, understanding, knowledge. How can you write and publish when you feel so overwhelmed and stressed and have to figure out how to reach successful authorship all alone?
Can you relate?
If that's your outlook on your writing life (and your life in general), you’re doomed to go through life talking about writing, wishing you could write and publish your work but never doing what you say or seeing your dreams come true.
If you continue with your unsupportive habits and mindsets, you’ll end your life without a legacy in the form of written work that can make a difference for years . . . even centuries . . . after you are gone.
Think about the readers who will never read your articles, blog posts, or books . . . if you don’t publish your work, they’ll never get access to your knowledge or story. They’ll never get the answers, solutions, or strategies you have to offer. They’ll remain stuck.
And what about you? If you never write and publish your work . . . how will you feel at the end of your life? Will you have achieved your potential, fulfilled your purpose, and served at the level you know you could have served?
I doubt it. And I bet even now you can feel that disappointment in your bones.
But your writing career and life do not have to turn into disappointment and regret. Instead, they can become consistent sources of clarity, energy, courage, productivity, and even influence with your readers. You can move toward your goals with bold action, enthusiasm, and joy and reap the results - a life lived fully; a career that allows you to reach your potential, fulfill your purpose, and create a satisfying livelihood; and a body of work that leaves a legacy of positive and meaningful impact.
How will you accomplish all of that sooner rather than later?
Master your psychology, physiology, productivity, people skills, purpose, and presence. Take control of your training and education, and take actions that allow you to earn an income from your work. Also, develop positive and supportive habits, mindsets, and strategies that help you succeed.
Makes sense, right?
It's common sense that these things would help you achieve your writing and publishing goals. But it's not common practice. However, it can become your common practice if you make the decision to do something that helps you move to the next level in your writing career.
And you know you want to level up (if you didn't, you wouldn't have continued reading to this point.)

Read What Members Have to Say About NFWU-Masters
I never thought of myself as an author, much less a writer. I had resigned myself to looking for a ghost writer and essentially giving my methodology away to someone who would write my book for me. Enter Nina Amir. In one interaction, she listened carefully to me, and, perhaps trusting her intuition, said, "Jim - you need to write your own book. And you CAN." She was so sure of herself...more sure of me than I was!
So, I signed up for her Nonfiction Writers' University Masters program - and it is amazing. I have made more progress toward getting my book written than ever in my life. With just a few coaching sessions, and a huge wealth of instructional videos, I am steadily making progress toward my dreams. Nina is totally on my side, and steadfast when I am doubtful. I am so grateful for our coach/client relationship, and highly recommend her to anyone who wants to bring their nonfiction book into manifestation, especially if it is in the spiritual, consciousness, or new-age genre.
By being a part of this program, I have someone I can trust to provide the information I need to get me to the next step in marketing my books. I have someone I can rely on to help me steer clear of people who don’t have my best interest at heart in the publishing world. Nina is a treasure and a fountain of information. If you want to be successful, the Nonfiction Writers' University Masters program gives you a mentor you can count on.
After five months working with Nina Amir in the Nonfiction Writer’s University Master’s Program I am now clear about my creative purpose. I learned what I need to stay focused in my writing and changed a number of habits that held me back from pursuing my creative writing dreams. In this short period of time I launched an Etsy site as a fundraiser for a cause near to my heart, and I am midway in the construction of my first website, “The Reflective Writer” where my goal is to blog about life and explore several book ideas. One unexpected result—I discovered a latent poet in my soul who gets to create in new ways every day. I can’t imagine having accomplished any of these without the guidance of Nina Amir. Though some may see her as a life coach, I call her my dream coach. Nina is compassionate, knowledgeable, accessible and generous, with a passion that inspires confidence along the creative path.
As a Nonfiction Writers' University Masters member, I've gained far greater psychological benefit in my whole approach to my book and writing of it. I also feel more confident, certain of my target audience and have greater comprehension of what is involved in becoming an author...I would recommend your training to anyone who was serious about writing.

Working with Nina Amir as my coach has helped me get to where I want to be. Each week I learned more about my strengths and weaknesses. The sessions were focused on me and forming a brand. It is much more than learning about productivity, physiology, Psychology, and Persuasion. It is about being all that you can be. Nina focused on me and pointed out possible, business mistakes that were adding work to my day.
I have also, enjoyed Nina’s Nonfiction Writer’s University membership site. It has brought some challenges that have pushed me and motivated me. There are also, many recordings that have provided me with answers, to keep moving forward.
Many CEO’s have coaches or mastermind groups, Nina Amir is one of mine.

Since starting with the NFWU-M program about 9 months ago I have discovered I have a much bigger capacity for learning and change, which I thought might be too rigid in my ’senior’ years. I can attest that it is never too late to take on something new and run with it. The Nonfiction Writers' University Masters program has given me inspiration, momentum and a community of writers from whom I learn, with whom I laugh, and beside whom I journey into this land of creative writing.

Still wondering if Nonfiction Writers' University Masters is for you? It is if…
No! Let’s say you pay the current NFWU monthly membership fee of $37 per month, and you join the NFWU-M level program as an Early Adopter, which is an investment of $97 per month. You will pay $97 per month going forward. You will NOT pay $134 per month ($37 + $97). We will upgrade your account to NFWU-M, and you will pay ONLY for NFWU-M.
No! You retain all access to everything in the NFWU. That doesn’t change in any way.
As a NFWU-M level program member, you ALSO gain access to the new content, bonuses, and program offered in the NFWU-M. That includes additional group coaching (office hours), Certified High Performance Coaching (the High-Performance Writer and Charged Writer programs), Author Training, and Authorpreneur Training. And you receive additional bonuses with your membership.
No. This is a no risk proposition! If you level up to NFWU-M and for some reason decide to go back to the NFWU, you will pay whatever you paid previously. I will honor the grandfathered payment.
Initially, you will need to login to the NFWU and NFWU-M programs separately. In the not-too-distant future, that content will be moved to the new platform used but the NFWU-M level program. You will then be able to access all the NFWU and NFWU-M content in one place.
We will refund the remaining amount (prorated), and place you on a monthly automatic payment cycle. Going forward, you will pay $97 monthly as an Early Adopter of the NFWU-M.
As a Founding Member, you receive a quarterly check-in session with me. You can ask me anything and get my feedback and support--just you and me for 20-30 minutes every three months.
You also have the opportunity to provide me with feedback—on session schedules, content, and more. In other words, you will be able to influence the early development of the program.
Plus, you join at the lowest price available - $97 per month. There are only 20 Founding Member spots available. Once they fill, the investment will increase. You will be grandfathered in at the Early Adopter price for as long as you are a member of the NFWU-M level program.
The official start was May 3, which is when the first Certified High Performance Coaching session took place. But all the May and June sessions, including Certified High Performance Coaching, Author Training, and office hours have been recorded, and you get access to the replays immediately! The Authorpreneur sessions—6 modules on creating your career plan—are also archived for you. Every month, all sessions are recorded; you can start learning and training as soon as you join by watching or listened to archived sessions.
No! Certified High Performance coaching is identical to these two programs. Previously, I renamed the first two sets of Certified High Performance Coaching sessions to market them to writers; I called them High-Performance Writer and Charged Writer. But these two programs are no different than the sessions I deliver to non-writers.
Certified High Performance Coaching is a training and coaching program used to help you have more clarity, energy, courage, productivity, and influence both personally and professionally. As you go through the curriculum, you master your psychology, physiology, focus and effectiveness, and people skills.
Certified High Performance Coaching consists of three sets of 12 high-performance coaching sessions: a core set, the Charge sessions, and the Declaration sessions. (In 2019, another set of 12 sessions will be released.) These same 36 sessions that I use with writers have been used successfully with Olympic athletes, Fortune 50 CEOs, celebrities (Usher and Oprah and their teams), housewives, authors, musicians, dancers, coaches, healers, and more.
Certified High Performance Coaching is a science-based, results-oriented, proven coaching curriculum administered by only about 300 coaches around the world. As you complete the sessions, you gain more presence and a stronger sense of purpose. You level up every area of your life. As a result, you succeed beyond your standard norms consistently over the long term and enjoy the ongoing feeling of full engagement, joy, and confidence that comes from consistently living from your best self. Your writing and career as an author benefit as a result of working on yourself—focusing on personal development.
Author Training is a curriculum of eight coaching sessions based on my book The Author Training Manual. These sessions help you learn how to produce a marketable book idea by producing a business plan for your book. In the process, you discover how you need to change to become a successful author and to improve your idea to ensure it sells. Plus, you learn how to promote your book and build an author platform.
An authorpreneur is a writer or author who approaches writing as a business and seeks out and employs additional-but-related strategies (besides publishing books) to earn a living. If you would like to create a career and a livelihood from your writing, you need to do more than write and publish. Authorpreneur Training provides you with the foundational strategies and knowledge necessary to create a variety of products and services related to your books so you can earn the income you want and need from your expertise, experience, advice, and content.
The NFWU has always focused on all the different areas or tasks related to becoming a successful nonfiction writer and author, including platform and promotion, monetization, and publishing. However, it did not focus on personal development for writers. Additionally, it lacked a mechanism for in-depth teaching on entrepreneurship or authorship. The NFWU-M program offers the most comprehensive approach to becoming an author or writer available. No other program delves into so many aspects of nonfiction writing and publishing or provides the ongoing personal-development support necessary to succeed as a writer and in life.
Plus, the NFWU-M provides the best programs I have to offer in every area of nonfiction writing and publishing and personal development. It contains proprietary training and ongoing coaching at a fraction of the investment you would need to make for any one of them alone.
If you don’t fit into these criteria, or you don’t feel ready to jump in at this advanced mastery level, no worries . . . join the Nonfiction Writers' University at the basic level. Get all the benefits of that membership until you feel ready for the mastery level.
Whatever you decide, know that there’s no reason you have to struggle alone . . . especially when you can have a supportive and inspiring teacher who has been there and done that - me - and is willing to share that journey with you. Why try to learn it all from a book or a blog when you can get your questions answered by someone with the knowledge you need and be part of a community - the Nonfiction Writers' University - of tenacious, committed, and enthusiastic like-minded writers?
There is no reason for you to seek out three, four, five teachers or websites to get what you need. You only need one - the Nonfiction Writers' University.
And when you need more, the Nonfiction Writers' University Masters program gives you the tools, strategies, mindsets, habits, and education to master yourself and your life so you can master writing and publishing. It’s a unique combination of personal development and authorship training.
