The new year is coming. We all have goals, plans, and dreams. Some of us have lots of checklists too! To wrap up this month’s series on how to build your writing career, Kathi is joined today by Roger Lipp and Tonya Kubo as they talk about the ONE thing in 2022 that authors and speakers can do to serve their audience better. 

  • Tonya has a “people first” approach to serving online communities. She encourages us to push forward with relationships, especially with peers who can be “power partners” and help us serve our audience better.
  • Roger wants us to have systems in place to help us get our work done. He is all about using helpful tools to take those big plans and turn them into doable tasks.

Kathi and her team are so excited about the lives that have been changed (and the books that have been written!) this year in the Red House Writer’s Collective, and they are looking forward to an even more productive 2022. The Collective is where you can find daily accountability and community for serving your audience and building your business.
