"The Get It Done team is so delightfully human and approachable."

“The Get It Done team is so delightfully human and approachable, and these qualities inform their curriculum and approach to the book creation process. They encourage you to create your book on your own terms and timeline and to not feel discouraged if your process takes longer, which mine did. As a recovering perfectionist, I benefited significantly from the reminders that my book could be imperfect and still change people's lives.”

- Danielle Shontae Smith, author of A Map You Cannot Refold

"I have a book that I'm so proud of!"

"So grateful for the amazing program you've created. The level of 1:1 attention, support, and guidance was phenomenal. I have no doubt that I would have gotten stuck and stalled out if left to my own devices. Instead, I have a book that I'm so proud to have launched into the world."


- Lori L. Cangilla, author of Wander and Delve: A Journal for Bright, Creative, Highly Sensitive People Forging Their Way
