I got to chat with a lovely lady named Doris yesterday. She lives in the apartment complex where I was working. We’ve talked before so she wanted to let me know that she’ll be moving in with her daughter in New Jersey. We chatted for a couple of minutes before I mentioned my new book that’ll be coming out titled Feed your Soul in 7 days.
Well, her face just lit up! “You’re writing this for me!” She said. “I need this book. I just can’t wait to read it!” she exclaimed. She was completely thrilled and asked me where she could get it. I told her that it’ll be out very soon, that I’m finishing up the edits and talking with my graphic designer the end of this week.
You should have seen her face! She was absolutely elated by the fact that I’m writing this book that will inspire her and others like her to feed her soul and defend her spirit against the horrible crap thrown around as ‘reality’ these days.
That did it. After seeing her face and feeling her excitement up-close and personal, I’ve realized that I need to get on the ball and FOCUS on getting my message out into the world. No more hiding my light under a bushel. No more worrying that some people just won’t understand what I’m trying to do.
Doris needs me. And YOU need me, my friendly blog reader!
So I need to get crystal clear on how I’m going to finish this book and launch it out into the world.
I’m on my way being an internationally known author, speaker and coach. Yeah, reading that sentence just scared me, but you know what, the fear doesn’t matter. I know in my heart that fear is natural, but it doesn’t serve me or the people who need my gift, my books, my energy.
I’m very fortunate in that I’ve found a mentor in Lisa Robbin Young. She’s a published author and a successful business coach. With her guidance, and my desire to put myself out into the world, my dreams will soon become a reality.
The people who don’t get what I write aren’t going to hold me back any longer because the people who need me are just going to love me. People like Doris. And it’s those people, and that energy, that I need to be laser focused on.
So watch out world! Here I come!!

p.s. Speaking of putting myself out there, this Saturday from 10am til 2pm, I’ll be at the Ace Hardware in Ortonville talking about my book You’re the Boat. I’m looking forward to being interviewed by America’s Master Handyman Glenn Haege on his radio show! Oh what fun!!
