When I started my coaching practice, I felt extremely awkward when I talked with prospective clients. Asking for a sale felt like torture. And I was so excited about anyone at all hiring me for my services that I didn’t really consider whether they were a good fit or not.
Thankfully, seven years ago I found Book Yourself Solid by Michael Port, which gave me an extremely clear framework and tools for selling my services.
One of the reasons why I liked the book so much is that Michael operates out of a personal value set of service and integrity. When I got to know him personally a couple of years after reading his book, this was totally reinforced. He has been a friend, mentor and ally for many years.
So I was so excited when he told me that he just released a brand new version of Book Yourself Solid which is fully illustrated.
As a visual learner, this made me very happy.
Here are some examples from the book:
Easy to understand module overviews
Complex topics made clear
Worksheets that you can print out and use immediately to close more business
A well-written book can open your mind and give you ideas.
A well-illustrated book can help you remember these ideas and take action.

Thanks for everything you have taught me, Michael, I look forward to hearing the stories from my readers who get value from your book!

What a gift this post is, thank you!!
Great article and resource, I will be sure to pass it on to our clients who are coaches. Who doesn’t want to be booked solid?
I have been wanting to read this for a long time, Pam, because of your recommendation and respect for Michael Port and because of what I learned from you in Power Boost Marketing. I’m so happy that there is now an illustrated version. I have just ordered it. (Immediately upon reading your post.) Thank you.
Thanks for the article Pam. As a stay-at-home mom who has ventured out to starting my own business, this will be very helpful. Thanks agan!
I have too many types of “favorite clients” in my EFT Tapping practice. I love books with specific action steps, and especially like the idea of worksheets to get you started. I’m going to buy this book!
Thanks for the tip Pam.
I have been diving into some coaching books just lately and Michael’s looks like a welcome addition to the reading list!
I just read his book last month. I thought it was extremely helpful in getting me to fine tune my focus. I have a clearer vision of the people who I’d like to be my clients. I just need to find them.
I’ve read and had the hardback for years and as a visual person I jumped on Michael’s new offering. Thanks Pam for sharing. I wasn’t aware it was available. Thanks Michael for creating it!
This seems to be an amazing book, thanks for the tip Pam.
Couldn’t of had better timing Pamela,
This is perfect for the spring upswing that’s happening right now.
Thanks for sharing.
