Book Excellence Awards Program
How author & life coach gained well deserved recognition for her book
Linda F. Williams is a Certified Executive Life Coach and relationship expert. She is the founder of Whose Apple Dynamic Coaching and Consulting, a practice that empowers leaders to turn their pain into power so they can discover their destiny and achieve the happiness they deserve.
As a dynamic change agent, Linda has overcome enormous personal barriers to become a nationally recognized motivational speaker and expert whose impact falls nothing short of powerful, engaging and transformative.
Linda’s book, Whose Apple is it, Anyway: Empowering Purpose to Achieve Your God-Ordained Destiny, received a Book Excellence Award in the Body, Mind, Spirit category. The book teaches readers how to rewire their thoughts to reduce stress, improve relationships and easily achieve their goals.
Linda’s journey in publishing her first book began as an uphill battle.
“It took seven blood, sweat, and tear-stained years to complete the book and another year or so to complete two professional edits. So, it was a 9-year journey that ended with self-publishing.”
After releasing her book, she found it difficult to gain traction and support. As an independent author with no prior publishing experience, she learned the dream would not happen overnight.
“I wasted so much money on a barrage of marketing offers that resulted in no return on investment.”
Marketing and publicity programs can cost thousands of dollars and can be difficult to justify when a return on investment can’t be clearly seen. Finding readers and standing out among the millions of books on the shelf became a clear barrier.
“Readers had no clue the book existed or why they should even care.”
It was important for Linda to reach the masses so she could impact as many people as she could with her life-changing, inspirational story. She wanted to become a best-seller and position herself as a respected, credible professional.
Becoming a Book Excellence Award Finalist
Learning about her Book Excellence Award win was an exhilarating experience for Linda.
“My jaw dropped as I tried to reign in my excitement long enough to read and re-read the message. I thought I must have been mistaken. It was an honor to win. I couldn’t believe it!”
The award gave Linda instant credibility as an author and the well-deserved recognition for all of her hard work.
“I could participate alongside the best in the business.”
Linda is a genuine example of someone who lives and breathes her message. From a traumatic past as a survivor of domestic violence, rape and homelessness, Linda has proven that with courage and healing, nothing is impossible.
Her motivational speeches and coaching practice have been heralded by podcast host in the UK, David Ralph as:
“Powerful for the rest of time.”
In addition, as a testament to Linda’s entrepreneurial excellence, she was named one of the 99 Limit Breaking Female Founders of 2018 in the Huffington Post.
