Here’s How It Works When You Join…
We'll guide you along the path
Currently available: Stage 0 & 1
Stage 2+ coming soon
Follow The Framework
Whether you’re at the very beginning of your author journey or you've been in the game for a while, my signature framework will help you design an author business that is uniquely yours - from the ground up. You’ll get access to:
A clear, guided method of strategies to implement so you’re clear on your path.
Workbooks, tools, and resources to ensure you are building the author business of your dreams, and not a copy-and-paste version of someone else's.
Clear benchmarks to hit before you ”graduate” on to the next stage of authorpreneur success!
Guest experts to help you grow
Learn New Skills From Guest Expert Masterclasses
At least once quarterly (though monthly is more common) a new guest expert training drops that is meant to give you an actionable and easily implementable lesson to help you elevate your strategy. You can expect trainings on:
- marketing strategies
- platform building
- writing craft + self-publishing
- success mindset
- and more!
We’ll support you along the way
and help you implement
Implement Like a CEO
With quarterly planning sessions, we help you create your 90-day action plan, implement new strategies, and get motivated to complete projects.
Monthly goal-setting workshops provide the perfect opportunity to take stock of what you've done, what still needs complete, and realign your goals.
Weekly accountability checks inside the community where you can declare your intentions for the week ahead, cheer each other on, and check in once the week is through.
Get personalized feedback
and connect with other authors
Get Plugged In
Our members-only Facebook community where you can ask questions, get involved, collaborate and access news, updates, videos, tips, advice and so much more.
You’ll never fall behind on your author journey because you'll be surrounded by authors on all levels of the journey. Not to mention, you’ll access our own #CoffeeChats which are casual conversations on the more sticky author situations (and a peek at our wins and all of our failures here at Thriving Scribes too).
Earn + unlock special bonuses, opportunities, + surprises by participating and completing lessons.
This isn't like other memberships out there.
Where most membership sites fail is their lack of structure. You find yourself overwhelmed and overloaded with content that's all over the place.
Rather than moving forward with implementation and results, you are left with a library of content you never consume and no closer to your goals.
This is not that.
Each member starts at square one inside the Framework. Watch a lesson and implement the strategy in order to unlock the next. Follow the success cycle. Use the masterclasses to dive deeper and enrich your experience. Rely on the community to keep you supported and on track.
If an accountability pod, group program, and an Author-Business University had a baby and then slashed the price by thousands, this would be it.
TRAININGS AND resources AND coaching, oh-my!
The resource library houses workbooks, guides, tools, meditation + visualizations to help you along your author journey. Some examples are:
- Thriving Scribes Planner
- All About My Author Business Workbook
- Author Bookkeeping Spreadsheet
- The Daily Success Guided Visualization
- and more!
Hosted inside the Facebook group, these random videos (posted when Brit feels a tug of inspiration) are candid videos about all aspects of authorship and creating success on your terms.
1-2 times a month, Brit will host a thread with a theme inside of the group (mindset, strategy) and you will have the chance to ask your questions, share your struggles, and express any blocks you are having. At the end of the week, Brit will put together a video coaching you through and provide individualized homework, journal prompts, and other supplementary content to help you get through whatever it is.
Have your sales pages, book blurbs, social media posts, newsletters, and website copy reviewed by Brit for maximum impact.

Hi, I'm Brit Poe
AND I'M THE FOUNDER OF THRIVINGSCRIBES.COM AND WILL BE YOUR GUIDE INSIDE THE THRIVING AUTHORPRENEUR ACADEMY.
I have a love for all things marketing, building a business on your terms, caramel coffee, and a healthy dose of woo.
Growing up in a family of business owners, I've been a serial entrepreneur since 2011. Blogging, brick-and-mortar, creative services, coaching, you name it - I've done it (or assisted someone in doing it).
When I decided to follow my passion and pursue authorship, I entered the indie author scene and made connections only to be shocked by my findings. Unlike some of the other niches I've worked in, I noticed a measurable lack in proper support and resources for authors looking to build a business and not a creative hobby (while that's a valid path to take, that's not the one I was looking for).
NOW IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THE PART WHERE I TELL YOU ALL ABOUT HOW I'VE BUILT A 6-FIGURE BUSINESS SELF-PUBLISHING IN UNDER SIX MONTHS, YOU WON'T FIND IT.
That's not who I am and that's not what this is about. Authorship is a long-game. It takes time, effort, and energy to reach the ultimate destination. Those gaps I mentioned I noticed? The basic ingredients all businesses need to thrive.
-Developing a success mindset and the grit to keep going, even when things get hard.
-Putting in place strong business foundations that support you as you grow.
-Understanding your genre and really diving into the psychology behind marketing to create a system that works.
-Creating a solid brand and the platform that extends from it that attracts your ideal readers.
-Balancing family and business, getting out of your own way, and implementing smart strategies to run your business, so you can spend more time creating and being with the people that mean the most to you.
I have taken my background in business building, online marketing, and mindset strategy and developed the framework that you'll find inside of the Academy.
If you’re ready to approach authorship differently, you’ve found the right place.
I just wanted to say that I am absolutely blown away by the content you've put together here! Not only am I getting a really good grasp on the practical business side of it, but you've also provided SO MANY resources for building my platform on a creative level.
