Let's Join Forces and Make a Difference in the World!
I am a certified life coach and an author coach with more than ten years of experience in helping individuals and groups achieve their dreams and goals. I am also a non-fiction editor with 20 years of experience in book publishing, including eight years in a division of Random House. I love coaching people beyond their personal barriers to success as well as helping writers become successful published authors. When I’m not editing, writing, or coaching, I can be found somewhere in Colorado on my horse or mountain bike.

Growing up in Illinois, I became an avid reader as soon as I could read complete sentences. I soon learned the thrill of putting words together on a page and receiving praise from my teachers. I used to tell my mother I wanted to be a writer and live in Colorado when I grew up. I’ve been in Colorado most of my adult life. Before I got into book publishing, I co-owned several restaurants and homeschooled my four kids. I still love to cook, and now I use my teaching experience to coach and teach writers at writer’s conferences.

People often ask if I do much writing myself. Though I haven’t published a book of my own (yet!), I have published a few magazine articles, and I enjoy contributing ideas to some of the books I edit. I can be just as happy with a well-written paragraph as I can with a fully edited manuscript. I also love writing marketing copy. There’s something about concise, powerful writing that makes me happy!

I became interested in life coaching when I met an author who was also a coach. She was so warm and welcoming that I decided I wanted to be like her. I did a nine-month training program in 2008, then became a certified coach in 2015 after completing a three-month program and 100 hours of coaching.

If I haven’t met you in person yet, I hope our paths cross some day. I’d love to hear your story!
I started my company, Write Concepts, in 2011 as an umbrella for my coaching and publishing consulting. Today, I'm helping authors and writers build successful publishing careers through my Author Access Course while still enjoying my job as an editor at David C Cook. 
"Some people can guide your writing, others your inner journey. Alice can do both! I have worked with Alice on books and I’ve benefitted from her life coaching. After every appointment with Alice I walk away knowing myself better and understanding what positive choices I need to make to benefit my life and writing."
                       ~Tricia Goyer, best-selling author of more than 60 books
"I found Alice Crider to be a compassionate, supportive, and inspiring coach. She helped me looked at some issues I’d struggled with for years from a different angle and helped me move on and put those struggles behind me."
                             ~Vickie McDonough, best-selling author of 40+ books
In four months of having Alice as my coach I have had major breakthroughs in business, relationships, happiness, and other areas of life. She has truly been the difference in me taking control of my life. She is reliable, wise, and resourceful and has gone from being a coach to a mentor and friend for which I will be forever grateful."
                                                                                  ~Craig B, entrepreneur
"Sometimes our dreams are too small. Alice helped me to align my goals with God’s great plans for my life. Prayerfully she guided me to accomplish more than I ever thought possible. From hoping to build a women’s conference, to a sold-out venue! She’s more than a success coach, she’s my advocate."
                                                       ~Dawna Hetzler, author, speaker, and                                                           founder of Overwhelmed conference
"As a mental health therapist, I know how important it is to have accountability, seek direction, and allow others to assist in pointing out blind spots. Alice does so in the most encouraging, supportive, and honest way possible. I was blessed to have Alice as my life coach. I noticed lasting changes in my mindset, motivation, discipline, and passions in general. I was able to reprioritize my life, set and attain goals, and see myself go from surviving life to thriving with a purpose. Alice is a woman of great integrity, wisdom, and humor. She is the best life coach out there!"
                                                                 ~Tammy M. Ferguson, MA LMHC
"Alice’s coaching empowered me to realize my possibility of full self-expression, peace, and joy. She would hold the mirror steady so I could discover and see things for myself. I’ll always respect how I learned the most when I didn’t think I wanted to be coached and she would still get me out of my head and back on track. Alice sets the standards for true integrity, influence, and inspiration, not just for me, but for everyone who has the pleasure of knowing her."
                             ~Shawn Renee, mindfulness & meditation instructor                                       and human factors specialist for a major airline
"After coaching with Alice for several months, I have been able to create more of what I want in my life because of her insight. Consistently, Alice has coached me through stuck-points and offered acute observations I hadn’t thought of (that seem so simple to her!) and that change my understanding of a situation such that I have power to act. She is deeply intuitive and present in a way that seems magical, even though I know it isn’t magic–it’s real listening, life experience, and the ability to deeply empathize with clients! I have so much gratitude for Alice."
                                      ~Rachel Balkcom, teacher and program director
"I took a group coaching class led by Alice Crider. I was very impressed with her presentation, her knowledge, the questions she asked, and her ability to really listen and encourage all the participants to talk. She shared valuable information that helped each person dig deeper and evaluate where they were in their own life, as well as reevaluating what they hoped to attain in the future."
                                 ~Miralee Ferrell, publisher and best-selling author
