Writing & Self-Publishing
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.
Trusting My Vision
I’d been a journalist and I knew how to write. My articles and event reports had been published on Elephant Journal and Huffington Post. However, I didn’t know anything about creating a book, publishing one, or how it was all going to work. I just decided to trust that my path would reveal itself, and it did…
A Desire to Make a Difference
Eight years ago, I got the inspiration for a book called From Burned Out to Fired Up. I wanted to express that feng shui was really about cultivating life force energy and share how I used it to heal myself from burnout and depression. I wanted to ease suffering in the world. I also wanted to grow my business, reach a bigger audience, create something that was easily reproducible, and support myself with my newly discovered writing skills and talent for “channeling”.
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 2013, I self-published From Burned Out to Fired Up: Fabulous Feng Shui Secrets for Feeling Happy, Confident, Sassy and Radiant with CreateSpace, an Amazon.com company. This book is about my own personal experience of overcoming burnout and depression. I experimented on myself and underwent quite a transformation through the process. I also learned a TON!
