In this episode of Chasing the Insights, I talk to the super talented author and coach Mila Johansen.

Mila talks to us about her journey and breaks the myth that becoming a published order is hard.

Mila Johansen is a public speaker, writing coach, teacher, and writer. She is the author of twenty-two plays and musicals that circle the globe along with five books.

Mila teaches social media, screenwriting, creative writing, herbology, and public speaking. She is also a writing coach and has a new book coming out—21 Surprising Tips to Promote Your Book. She loves giving people permission to write their Short Book and teaches them how to do it. The Short Book can be used by entrepreneurs to become the expert in their field, to be a calling card or the outline for a longer book. Her new 6-week program From Pen to Published provides the nuts and bolts of writing and publishing for entrepreneurs and writers.

Mila has just finished a book, From Cowgirl to Congress, available on Amazon and in bookstores, about her famous suffragette grandmother, Jessie Haver Butler, for the 100th anniversary of women getting the right to vote in August 2020. Jessie was on the front lines of the suffrage movement in Washington D.C. with Carrie Chapman Catt and Alice Paul as the first woman lobbyist. Before that, in 1912, she helped organize the Pulitzer School of Journalism at Columbia University. She later spoke alongside Bernard Shaw, Eleanor Roosevelt, Gloria Steinem and Marlo Thomas.

Mila lives on her organic citrus ranch in Northern California with her husband, four dogs and a cat.
