Business Motivation | How Heart-Aching Change Ignited New Growth for My Business and Virtual Ministry
Welcome to another Empowering Post, where we teach you valuable lessons that will help you thrive as a self-published writerpreneur.
If, by chance, you happen to be new to The Foundation, let me introduce myself. I am Felecia Killings, the Founder and CEO of this great work. Since 2011, I've helped new and aspiring authors launch their business and ministry around their authorship.
Today, my clients have grown into amazing writerpreneurs, speakers, and spiritual leaders who are changing the world using their stories.
In 2016, I launched my signature course, LiyahAmore University, a 12-week training program that walks my clients from A-Z of Writerpreneurship. During this training, I worked with them to craft a book based on the vision and mission YahWeh delivered to them. Not only have my clients created and published their books, but they have become thriving podcast hosts, online coaches, and virtual ministers.
That was three years ago, and since then, I've continued to empower thousands of authors through the multiple lessons found on Our Empower Blog.
In 2019, a shift occurred within The Foundation.
On social media -- Facebook and Twitter, for example -- my platform grew exponentially within the conservative political sphere. This dramatic shift altered the way I envisioned this virtual ministry and placed my name before leaders in Washington D.C.
Such increase was followed by a number of business alterations, which I want to share with you in this post. And what I discovered was that YahWeh was taking this work (and our Beloveds) to a new level.
So, join me for 15 minutes as I share our 2019 year in review. By the end of the post, I will discuss the direction we're headed, the lessons learned from 2019, and why The Foundation is focused on this next decade (and not just the new year).
Welcome to a new Empowering Post.
Our mission is to deliver first-class educational resources that help you launch your online business or virtual ministry using your authorship.
If you are new to this platform, let me introduce myself.
I am Felecia Killings, the Founder and CEO of The Foundation. I've worked with new and aspiring Authors, Speakers, and Spiritual Leaders since 2011 as their writing coach and book editor. In 2016, I launched my signature online school, LiyahAmore University, which contains hundreds of lessons that dive deeply into Writerpreneurship.
One of our classes focuses exclusively on developing aggressive marketing campaigns that help you bring your message to the masses.
And this blog provides FREE lessons to help you get started on your journey.
For today's teaching, I want to share 7 ways you can aggressively market your message so you reach millions.
By working with what you have right now and leveraging your current connections, you can expand your platform, sell more books, and eventually scale your business or ministry so you become a full-time Writerpreneur.
If you apply the following strategies to your work, you will discover how simple it is to reach the masses with the message YahWeh has given you.
So, let's get straight into this teaching.
Welcome to another Empowering Post, where we share actionable tips and strategies that will help you launch the writing ministry or business of your dreams.
If you are new to this virtual work, let me introduce myself. I am Felecia Killings, the Founder and CEO of The Foundation. I first began this journey of empowering writerpreneurs back in 2011, serving as a writing coach and content editor to new authors.
Today, I am an award-winning coach who empowers thousands of followers; and my message has reached millions as a result of applying best business practices to my virtual ministry and online business.
Since that time, I have accomplished quite a bit:
Overall, we've accomplished a lot, especially over the last 18 months. And we continue growing because of one unique feature that has empowered the work: building an author's platform.
During today's Empowering Post, I want to inspire you to consider creating a thriving online presence that helps you reach your financial goals.
I want you to expect great things to happen for you and your work.
If you give the proper time, energy, and resources to your ministry, you will manifest all you desire.
Channeling that desire into its practical application will make the difference. And by building a solid, addictive Author's Platform, you will witness great rewards.
Now, if you haven't considered the benefits of an Author's Platform, then it's time to start taking it more seriously today.
This lesson will teach you why this is the best time to begin building your Author Platform. Yesterday is gone, and tomorrow will soon be here. But today is what will determine where you (and your writing ministry or business) will be in the near future.
So, grab your notepad and pen, and let's spend some time together.
Welcome to another Empowering Post, where we share powerful lessons that help you build a dynamic virtual ministry or online business using your authorship.
I am Felecia Killings, Founder and CEO of The Foundation. We are deeply committed to seeing new authors, speakers, and spiritual leaders thrive in this online space. And we do so by providing FREE lessons each week that get you started on your writerpreneur's journey.
Within the Empower Blog, I provide numerous teachings on the technical aspects of launching a virtual ministry or online business.
But for the sake of this lesson, I want to focus on the ways self-publishing authors can build a virtual ministry using their authorship.
Now, if you've never heard this phrase, allow me to briefly elaborate on what a virtual ministry is.
Think about your favorite author, writer, speaker, thought leader, or conservative influencer.
Now imagine yourself being one such individual who uses both the online and offline space to spread the message God called you to do.
This is the essence of a virtual ministry.
More specifically, a virtual ministry is a work that enables people to develop a strong relationship with God.
Virtual ministers use the spoken and written word to "tear down, take apart, and demolish" ideologies that rise against the knowledge of God (Jeremiah 1:9-10); and then we use our messages to help build and plant again so that lives are changed for the better.
A virtual minister does more than publish books. One's work embodies a movement that tackles areas such as abortion, domestic violence, family, finances, relationships, politics, and more.
When implemented effectively, virtual ministers can create works that generate sustainable income. More than that, they can create ministries that revolutionize the culture, one person at a time.
To give you an idea of a virtual ministry, consider The Felecia Killings Foundation.
As of today, we have:
But building a powerful virtual ministry requires one to understand the business and technical aspects of the work. Even if you choose not to operate your future virtual ministry on your own, it's important that you have the knowledge and understanding so you won't be deceived in this world of publishing and ministry.
When you don't know much about this industry and the virtual space, it can be easy for other people to take advantage of you. I don't want that to happen to you, and this is why I deliver such education.
When you are armed with knowledge, you experience great success.
And for today's lesson, I want to teach you 13 best business practices for launching your virtual ministry.
So, grab your notepad and pen, and let's spend some time together.
Welcome to another Empowering Post. I am Felecia Killings, the Founder of The Foundation. Our mission is to help Beloveds like you use the online space to create businesses or ministries around your authorship.
Each week, we share FREE lessons with rising leaders, writers, and speakers to help them get started on their journey. And we deliver advanced training to those who need direct assistance with constructing their books.
At The Felecia Killings Foundation, we spend extensive time discussing the systems that are used to build a thriving business or ministry.
But we don't often talk about the "elephant in the room" when it comes to this work: How much money can self-published authors make?
In my experience, several new authors shrink from the idea of making a sizable income with their authorship. In fact, some critics chastised me for teaching writerpreneurs how to generate wealth using their gifts.
I wrote an e-book on this subject, Wealth and the Believer, which teaches my readers that to not make any money with their work is foolish. So, if you're of the fold who despises wealth, this lesson won't benefit you.
But if you're a forward-thinking writerpreneur, generating wealth is absolutely attainable. In fact, you can't have a sustainable business without revenue.
And the way you make this possible is by creating multiple streams of income and pricing your services or products appropriately. These products and services must correlate with your author's brand and message. And the more creative you are in developing new offerings, the more income you can generate.
When beginning this journey, quite often new writerpreneurs fear over-charging their services. Most of them undercut their fees or book prices instead of considering how best to position themselves in the market.
So, for today's Empowering Post, I want to share with you how I developed several income streams and how our pricing system reflects our business's long-term financial goals.
I will teach you why value is the important factor when it comes to pricing. In addition, you must also understand your ideal market and what they are willing to sacrifice for your offer.
By the end of this teaching, I hope you're inspired to think largely about your authorship. The only limits you have in terms of making money as an author is that which you establish in your mind.
So, without delay, let's get straight into this teaching.
Why Brand Partnerships are One of the Best, Creative Book Marketing Ideas for Self-Published Authors
Welcome to another Empowering Post. I am Felecia Killings, the Founder and CEO of The Foundation. Our mission is to help Beloveds like you create online businesses and virtual ministries around your authorship.
Since 2011, I have worked as a writing coach and ministry strategist to new, aspiring, and seasoned authors and speakers, sharing with them advanced lessons on constructing books that bring healing to others.
And each week, I share FREE lessons on the main blog that help you get started on your self-publishing journey.
I want to begin today's empowering post with this question: What do you feel is the biggest challenge to your authorship in terms of marketing?
We both know the need to create an effective marketing plan, one that will enable us to sell our books and products with our audience. But for many self-publishing authors, generating ongoing sales is one of the biggest obstacles.
In today's post, I want to spend some time on this topic, and by the end of the lesson, you will have some strategies to help you create a more effective marketing plan.
Just recently, I started re-organizing a portion of my marketing plan. Not only have I added content marketing to it, but also another strategy that I believe will be the key to propelling my business and widening my audience.
I’m talking about establishing brand partnerships, ones that will allow me to connect with influencers from across the nation. I first discovered this as a powerful marketing tool when I came across Navid Moazzez, a virtual summit expert, who uses his skills to help entrepreneurs generate larger audiences.
Recognizing that we all have the power to help each other prosper, he and other virtual summit leaders work towards creating empowering events that transform lives.
I share this same desire, mostly to empower authors like you, and have made the choice to use brand partnerships to enhance your learning experience while expanding my brand and business. As I typically do with all my posts, I will use my own story to show you how you can employ this same strategy as a new author.
And if you're willing to make partnerships integral to your platform, you will see it grow exponentially.
So, let's dive into this teaching.
Welcome to another Empowering Post where we share powerful lessons that help you build a business or ministry around your authorship.
If you are new to The Felecia Killings Foundation, let me briefly introduce myself.
I am Felecia Killings, the Founder and CEO. Our mission is to help Beloveds like you engage in this end-time revival and national reformation using the written and spoken word.
Since 2011, I have worked as a writing coach and ministry strategist to new, aspiring, and seasoned authors and speakers, sharing with them advanced lessons on building a powerful virtual work that will change the world.
Such endeavors include publishing books, launching online courses, starting online churches, and more. By leveraging the virtual space, authors can reach millions with their message.
In today's post, I want to discuss what I feel is an often-neglected strategy among self-publishing authors. But before I do that, I want to create a couple of scenarios for you.
After reading each one, I want you to answer this question: Of the two authors, from which one would you be more willing to purchase, and why?
Here's the story.
Two authors were scheduled to release their books on the same day. They had a similar message to share with readers, focusing on a topic that would help their ideal audience master a skill.
For six months, both writers spent quality time constructing their masterpiece, and each one hired the best editor for their work. Everything about both writers was nearly the same, except for this one thing.
At the start of constructing her book, the first writer, Lynn, began telling people about her project. She created several blog posts while working on her manuscript. She held webinar sessions to share her content with her ideal reader. She visited local libraries to see about hosting her launch event, in which she hoped to meet 25 of her loyal fans.
Lynn took great care to build momentum before launching her book.
The second writer, Joyce, however, found Lynn’s efforts to be a waste of time, and certainly not something worth doing because her book needed to be finished. Plus, Joyce felt that anything extra would cost her more money, of which she was unwilling to invest.
Lynn, on the other hand, realizing that while she would have to invest more time and money into promoting her work before it was finished, felt that it was crucial for her book’s success.
After six months of spending countless hours on their books, both authors finally released it for mass publication.
Welcome to another Empowering Post, where I teach you valuable, actionable lessons that will help you launch your career.
I'm Felecia Killings, and I've worked with new self-publishing authors since 2011.
I'm deeply committed to helping you discover your purpose for your virtual ministry or online business, and I provide the training solutions that enable you to make your vision a reality.
With every FREE lesson I publish, I want to give you different strategies that you can implement immediately.
Building a thriving authorship, as new as it may be, is much more complex than what many people realize.
Therefore, it's my mission to make your journey easier to understand and manage.
In today's post, I want to teach you how to properly invest in your authorship.
There are many entrepreneurs, vying for your attention and money, which may be overwhelming to you.
Many "gurus" promise to deliver powerful results if you hire them; and some of them can actually deliver.
But when there are so many experts from which to choose, it can be daunting and outright frustrating, especially because you don't want your resources (time and money) to be wasted.
So, what I want to do today is give you the five, must-have investment tips for your new self-publishing career. I'll also share with you why these elements are important, and how I have used them to help me move forward in my work.
More specifically, this lesson will teach you about:
So, grab your notepad and pen, and let's get started.
Welcome to another Empowering Post where we share powerful lessons that help you get started as a new self-publishing author.
I am Felecia Killings, Founder and CEO of The Foundation, and our mission is to equip you for your new writing career or ministry using advanced lessons based on effective writerpreneurship.
Over the last few years, I've helped new authors (and now upcoming speakers and Conservative leaders) craft powerful books that bring healing and deliverance to others.
I've taught my clients and students the power of using their stories as a method of empowering other people who have gone through similar experiences.
Not only do I provide assistance in helping them construct their own books, but I also equip them to launch their own ministries or businesses using the virtual or online space.
This includes providing teachings on best practices for marketing their works as self-published authors; setting up their social media platforms for building a fan base; creating multiple streams of income for their venture, and much more.
This is the essence of writerpreneurship: taking online entrepreneurial strategies and applying them to one's authorship.
In all, building a virtual business or ministry extends beyond simply writing a book or securing a couple of speaking gigs.
It's about creating a structure that brings immense value to the market; and you, my Beloved, have the power to do the same thing if you are willing to learn the spiritual and technical skills required to succeed as a writerpreneur.
That, in essence, is where my virtual ministry and online business come in.
Now, for today's teaching, I want to help you develop a strategy for building your virtual ministry while still working for another company.
Not every person is able to commit to their ministry or business full-time at the beginning, but it doesn't mean that one's work has to sit on the sidelines.
So, I want to share some tips with you today, because the only way your work will grow is when you are ready to sacrifice some things to make it happen.
Welcome to this Empowering Post.
For today's teaching, I want to share with you simple steps that will help you develop your inspirational book that will crush it in the market.
There are many writers today who have a message of hope and inspiration for others. While some works are phenomenal, there are others, especially in the self-publishing industry, that are sub-par simply because of the poor writing and lack of editing.
While to some people, these technical issues may not matter, I want to highlight some useful tips to those who are looking to create successful, inspirational works. As you grow in your writing ministry, you'll discover how important it is to present a professional, empowering product so your audience becomes addicted to your work.
This is a lesson I teach to all my scholars inside LiyahAmore University, and I know this will help you as well.
So, let’s begin!

Government Orders Churches to Close After COVID Deaths
Recently, in North Carolina, the government forced another large church to close temporarily after 120+ cases of COVID were traced back to it. Three people affiliated with the church have already died from the plague.
Ironically, this church intended to hold a revival meeting, no doubt to replicate the old-time healing meetings that once spanned our American churches.
After all, the healing revivals were one of the reasons the churches grew in numbers during that time.
Much has changed since then, no doubt. Within the last 100+ years, America's spiritual leaders have become apathetic to the culture. They barely speak about the Holy Spirit, even though He is present in the world. Our churches have become entertainment centers, where people congregate for 1-2 hours a week to hear "a good word."
But the American Church has not been the "True Church" in over a century. It's no wonder the Holy Spirit told William Seymour, "100 years from now, I will pour out my Spirit again," referencing the American churches.
Back in 2016, our Founder, Felecia Killings, asked the Holy Spirit about this "end-time revival."
She said, "I don't see this revival you promised Apostle Seymour. I see the same thing every Sunday, but absolutely no revival." For months, she held these conversations with the Holy Spirit. And in the midst of them, He revealed why this end-time revival would not look like what we witnessed 100+ years ago.
Instead, revival would happen in the virtual space where billions of minds congregate daily. He said, "This revival will deal with the hearts and minds of the people." While the old-time services focused on external healing, the Holy Spirit would pour out on us in a greater measure to deal with our hearts and minds.
In April 2016, the Holy Spirit asked Felecia to launch a "virtual Bible study," a story she chronicles in her newest e-book, The Power of Virtual Ministries in 2020 and Beyond. Since that time, her work has reached millions and counting.
After experiencing massive growth in her virtual ministry, she watched as other preachers had their ministries destroyed because of the plague. This situation inspired her to teach fellow ministers how to enter the virtual space where their local ministries could still thrive; and she packaged this teaching in this new work.
In this 20-page, Empowering E-Book, ministry leaders will learn why the next wave of revival and reformation is happening in the virtual space.
By setting up their online churches, leaders can expect to see exponential growth, both in numbers and finances. But it will require advanced training from someone who knows how to build the system of operations so their virtual ministries thrive. And that's what Felecia delivers in this Empowering E-Book.
Lessons in this work include:
This e-book also includes 4 worksheets that help you organize your ideas for launching a virtual ministry today.
Your $10 investment in this empowering resource will yield unlimited results, both financially and spiritually, if you're bold enough to implement the strategies.
Felecia's virtual ministry is a living testament to what can be done when we take the Kingdom message to the virtual space. People are showing up daily to read or hear a powerful message. And folks are eager to financially support a work if they believe you are contributing to the overall good of the nation.

"Felecia has always been an award-winning coach. She taught me to stand up in my truth and to be okay with it. She didn't judge me. I will never forget the love and nurture that she extended to me over the years. All that she taught me is what I do in my business/ministry, sharing the same love to others to seek all that God has intended for them, according to His purpose."
- Tschanna Taylor, Best-Selling Author, Speaker & Life Coach
"Felecia does an absolutely amazing job of maintaining your vision and making it come to life. If you need help getting your vision on paper, editing of your book, or even need coaching on writing your book, she is AWESOME!"
- Bessie Scoggins
"Felecia is very talented and has several qualities that a new writer can benefit from. She has excellent communication skills and a very sensitive and supportive approach to her training. What I love most about her teaching style is her ability to listen to what you want; then she immediately develops alternative approaches to improve your manuscript. I must say, the six-month journey of creating my manuscript went smoothly because of her support and assistance. I recommend Felecia without reservation."
- Mulu Afework
"I've worked with Felecia on two projects; she helped me with writing and editing my book. As an author, finding the right editor is very important. I had my book edited by someone who didn't do my book justice. But once Felecia performed the edits, the story flowed better than I'd image. I had found the right editor. Her skills are remarkable and I highly recommend her for any project you may have, big or small. As a writing coach, I wanted to take my business to the next level. Seeking out Coach Felecia was the best decision I made. She encouraged me to develop an online school, which I'm in the process of doing. She helped me create the curriculum, identify my audience, and provided me with the tools to succeed. If you need a coach to push you to the next level, Felecia is the person. She knows her stuff."
- Paulette Harper
"I want to thank my writing coach, editor, and publisher, Felecia Killings, for her coaching style and writing skills. Felecia stayed with me throughout the entire project. She heard and understood my heart in every word written. Her encouragement was priceless but not free. Every dollar spent was well worth it! Thank you for the skills that I learned in writing this project and the projects to come."
- Betty Short-Sams
