Survival Guide for Dreamers

Survival Guide calendar, day 1If you’ve got a dream (or wish you had one) it’s time to stop being stuck. Let me send you 365 days of help with procrastination and Resistance. This new program is designed to give you exactly what you need to finally get moving. Here’s how it works: One day at a time for a full year I’ll be with you via a brief email, helping you get past the procrastination and resistance that have kept you from achieving your dreams. That’s it. No exercises to do. No discussions to keep up with. Just an email a day to encourage you and teach you how to deal with whatever prevents you from going after your dreams. Begin your Survival Guide year at any time.

Barbara Sher Book Clubs

Our next book club begins in October 2018, reading Refuse to Choose. Members of ongoing book clubs should contact for assistance. Even after our official reading period has ended, members are still welcome to add comments for the full year. You won’t be alone in finishing the exercises.

Registration for Hanging Out Opens January 5, 2019

If you have not yet experienced the jewel in the crown of Barbara’s Club, please check out Hanging Out with Barbara Sher. Enjoy a full year of treats every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. (There’s even a second year available if you too become addicted to them.) To make sure everyone gets to know plenty of other people in addition to me, we now open registration only twice a year. Registration is expected to open again on or about January 5 and close about two weeks later.

WriteSpeak Online: Write Your Own Success Story

WriteSpeak Online registration opens again on February 9, 2019, during our Dare to Soar Telesummit.

This is my entire WriteSpeak program, the one I’ve been teaching since 2007 — the 6-hour, highly interactive teleworkshop with me plus a new 48-week online version of the material that was in my WriteSpeak retreat and telecourse, all for a fraction of the earlier price. And now I also offer optional monthly group coaching with one of my WriteSpeak coaches.

For more information, read or listen to my February 2018 talk, How to Become a Writer and Speaker by Next February.

More courses are coming soon!

Be sure you are on the mailing list or a member of Hanging Out to hear about them the moment they are available. The mailing list sign-up is under my photo at the bottom of this page.

  1. I am posting this comment on the Barbara’s Club Courses page and WriteSpeak page to let everyone interested know. We’re postponing the start of the next WriteSpeak year until March of 2018, so Barbara and I can visit our grandkids this fall. Registration will open on February 10, 2018. If you join us, we’ll be celebrating the launch of your book and your speaking career on February 9, 2019.

  2. Hello,
    I am SO excited to read about the WriteSpeak program. Could you please confirm that I have to wait until September 9th to register? I can’t wait!! Or can I be put on a waiting list before that?
    I am sure I know the answer, but I’m so excited I thought I’d ask!
    Thank you so much

    • Carol, we all go through the program in a group, supporting each other, for a full year, so you cannot join now, but I’m thrilled you’re looking forward to it. If you’re interested in becoming a WriteSpeaker, I urge you to join us for the Telesummit ( on September 9th, where you can hear from many of the wonderful writers and speakers just finishing up the year. On that page I just linked to, you can hear last year’s grads. Very soon, we’ll be featuring on that same page the grads launching their careers as authors and speakers this year. Be sure you’re on Barbara’s mailing list (sign up right below her photo on almost any page), and we’ll keep you updated on the Telesummit and WriteSpeak.

  3. Your name came into my mind as I was meditating.I read your books years ago and so glad to connect again.

      • It says it will “begin” registration on June 1, how am I late? The scene in the Wizard of Oz when they’re trying to get past the guard at the gate of the Emerald City just came to me…..please, I must get in to see the Wonderful Wizard of Oz so I can get home! 🙂 no really, open the door a smidge.

        • Registration began then and ended on June 14th with a very full house. We are not able to admit any more. Our next book club will be taking registrations from Sept 21 – October 4. I hope you’ll join us then, Dee — or for Hanging Out, which will be taking new registrations from July 8 – 23.

  4. Hi Barbara, I love your teamworks idea & just ordered the book used. I’m thinking I might like to start a teamworks group sometime. I tried to login & create a password on this site, but got the message that I needed to buy something. Where do I go to buy something?
    Thank you & Happy New Year!

    • Hi, Marilyn. The only time you’ll need to log in is if you’re part of Hanging Out (which should begin registration again around March 11th), one of our book clubs (the next one, reading I Could Do Anything, should begin registration in February), WriteSpeak (which will begin registration during the Telesummit on September 9th) or one of the new programs and courses due to begin this year. To learn about them all, sign up for Barbara’s mailing list at the bottom of the page or on

      And do take a look at the Sher Success Teams website, because Teamworks is a do-it-yourself text, while the Success Teams Leader Kit is Barbara’s own workbook and audio recordings for running teams.

  5. Dear Barbara I wonder if your course 8-Week Success Teams Workshop is still available.
    Looking forward to your reply.
    All the best.


  6. I just finished watching Barbara’s YouTube video on the Refuse to Choose book club on my phone. I don’t see anything on the video relayed to the year, so I’m assuming it’s for November 2016? Actually I’m hoping!
    For some reason I have not received updates in my email about Barbara’s upcoming events – most likely because of my own doing! I have several emails for various projects! Such a scanner thing! Thank you!

    • Look for Barbara’s photo on this page ( and enter your email address right below the photo to add your favorite email address to her mailing list. Not sure which event you’re asking for a date on, but WriteSpeak registration is open right now through Oct 20, 2016, our next book club registration will open on or about Oct 13, 2016, and Hanging Out registration will open on or about Oct 30, 2016.

  7. Signing up for the telesummit but wonder if my signing up for the *club* newsletter is different from being on the mailing list.
    Also, wonder if there is any scholarship assistance for WriteSpeak? Thanks.
