Using humor, a strong intuition, and a lifetime of experience, published author and writing coach MJ Schwader guides coaches, speakers, healers, and conscious entrepreneurs to craft and promote their writing, from concept to the marketplace.
MJ holds a degree from Oregon State University in Technical Journalism with an emphasis in Business Management. After working for several years as a technical writer contracting to high tech companies in the United States and Pacific Rim countries, MJ created and operated a restaurant for five years before becoming a Life and Business Coach to other coaches and speakers.
When clients learned of MJ’s experience in writing and publishing, they asked MJ to help them publish their books. As a result, MJ founded the collaborative 10-book series, A Guide to Getting It, with each book filled with chapters written by Life and Business Coaches to highlight principles and ideas supported in the coaching process.
Following the Guide series, MJ partnered with Equine Facilitated Learning and Coaching trainer Kathy Pike to publish two collaborative books in the Horse as Teacher book series. Equine Facilitated Learning and Coaching is a method of using horses as guides to personal and business development work.
Between the collaborative books and working with individual authors, MJ has worked with over 200 published authors.
In 2013, MJ partnered with Michelle Hutchinson to create mobile apps for coaches, speakers, healers, conscious entrepreneurs, and authors to brand and market their books, ebooks, information products, and businesses. Bringing all of the pieces together, Inspired Life Publications was born.
MJ uses a unique blend of 30+ years of experience in technology, e-commerce, and writing, combined with a life-time of study in human potential and consciousness, to inspire clients to create and market their transformational books, ebooks, mobile apps, and other informational products. MJ helps clients create a visionary and focused strategy to create books and mobile apps that inform, inspire, and transform while sharing their message with the world.
Michelle Hutchinson spent 15 years reinventing herself within the same multi-million dollar international automotive company, creating and stepping into numerous new positions from Internal Software Trainer to Software Application Developer. She created business systems, improved processes, and was the sole developer of software applications for the company’s five international locations, who all looked to her for leadership.
A defining moment left Michelle questioning her life’s purpose and whether she was truly living her passion. After years of searching for an answer she realized that she was meant to do more with her life and decided to take the leap to do something new. Before leaving her position, she spent several months transitioning her replacement and was recognized as a key player in creating and developing more efficient global systems that will be in place for many years.
After leaving her job she co-founded Inspired Life Publications, creating books, ebooks, information products, and mobile apps for speakers, authors, healers, and conscious entrepreneurs to inform, inspire and transform their audiences.
