The Power of Sharing Your Story
Are you a pioneer, warrior, teacher or healer? Do you have something that you feel called to share with the world? Do you dream of writing a transformational book, from your own experience? The battles you fought, the lessons you learned, the silver linings that you discovered…those are all things that may be valuable to your tribe. You can make a positive difference in the world by sharing your story.
My Writing Journey
I know what it’s like to struggle with writing. Believe it, or not, I nearly flunked my college writing class! Years later, I met Waylon Lewis and Ariana Huffington at an event in Los Angeles. Waylon asked me to write an article, based on a comment I’d made on Facebook, and I decided to try it out. I found a way of tuning into the divine and sinking into the process. Where writing had once been very hard for me, suddenly, it flowed and I was off-and-running. I cut my teeth writing about green business events, spiritual movies, health and wellness, and many other subjects that I’m passionate about.
After attending a business seminar, for healers, I got an inspiration to write a transformational book about my own journey of healing from burnout and depression, with a unique feng shui approach. I taught myself the ins and outs of writing and creating a polished, professionally done book, so that I could teach others how to produce theirs, as well. In February of 2014, I self-published From Burned Out to Fired Up with CreateSpace. It’s gotten great reviews and people have been pleasantly surprised by it’s substance and quality, especially since many self-published “books” are more like glorified pamphlets. With 63 mini chapters and nearly 300 pages, mine is definitely a book. And I know that it’s helped many people, which was the whole point of birthing it!
How I Can Help
Anyone can write a book, but it can be a daunting task to organize and compose one, especially if it’s your first time going through the process. There are times when we need a second pair of eyes and ears to make sure that our ideas are grounded in reality, our words flow, and our grammar and punctuation are spot-on.
Sometimes, with self-published books, people have this idea that they’re going to be of lower quality, but that doesn’t have to be true. My book has gotten great reviews and customers have remarked on how much they like the formatting and substance of it.
So, if you have a desire to write your own transformational book, and want it to be professional-quality and composed in a way that really speaks to your audience, I’d love to support you in that process!
Do you have a book, in your heart, that’s just begging to be created? You can use your story of struggle and triumph to help others overcome similar challenges.
Writing a book is an intimidating process, especially if you’ve never done it, before. I can make it much easier, though. Let me be your guide in determining the best way to structure, compose & self-publish your transformational book.
At this time, I am focusing more on the process of writing, than self-publishing. I am also looking to gain experience and build my clientelle, so I am willing to be flexible with my fees.
It’s a great time to connect, if you’re ready to write your story and help others triumph over trauma.
