For Heneka, eating right, exercising, meditating, praying, and being centered are all necessary parts of her entrepreneurial journey forward. She does all of this, pays attention to all of it, because she had a serious health scare not that long ago.
There I was, this frightened and fearful teenage, sitting at my dining room table with pencil and paper, pouring her soul into stories with happy endings, where the heroine always got rescued, knowing there was no rescue for me, in my home. But the very act of writing gave me the courage and determination to get through an other day, and another day, until ... I didn't quite know what the 'until' was, but I knew there had to be something. Something else.
I'm working on The HOW TO WRITE A BOOK Book, Part II. To be completed, probably in the Fall, also. This is the second in a series of books planned for our How To Write A Book series of educational books on writing. Our focus is on non-fiction as those are the authors we work with.
Mary didn't write this book because of one bad boss. She wrote the book to impress upon leaders today, and those who would be leaders, that the command and control method is over. Today, you need to be "transformative and visionary." If you need help, get the book. If you know someone else who could use that training, get the book.
Dorothéa Bozicolona-Volpe was born in New York City to French and Italian parents. Her Father’s passing caused her family to move to Europe where she became somewhat of a nomad.
Of course, we didn't limit ourselves. The avatar was merely to get us comfortable with how the company was going to grow a community of fans, eager to buy and share and support us. And we had to start somewhere, right? Starting with a detailed, well-thought-out description of our ideal customer got us into the station wagon and ready for our journey.
I learned it's good to look pretty. No, I don't mean run out to the beauty parlor. Or rush out to get a haircut. Or, put on your party duds. I mean, take a shower. Comb your hair. If you wear make-up, put it on. If you have a button down shirt, wear it.
You've heard all the platitudes, think and grow rich, you are what you eat, think and believe, etc, etc. They're great quotes to hang on a wall, but I want you to reach deep, deep, deep down, into your soul and see yourself as you truly are - worthy of success. Just as worthy as any other woman, many of whom you've helped succeed.
I like to think, perhaps, there were girls who were also not pregnant, but were out of control, according to some rule in their households. Girls who wanted to read and write and be heard, when they spoke. Girls who wanted to challenge the status quo and make something of themselves - girls whose only goal in life was to NOT be Mrs. Somebody or other, because they knew if that happened, they were lost, forever.
When you write to save your life, the flow of the story may seem sequential, because you’re composing it from day one of memory, to present time, but when you edit, you will uncover memories that conflict with what is on paper; memories that go deeper, so much so, you wonder if you can share them in this book you are creating. Memories you have hidden, even from yourself.
I 'met' Sarah Jordan via a Facebook Live done by another SWC guest, Image Consultant,Carol Hanson. Sarah presented herself as exactly the kind of woman I am passionate about supporting and sharing. She's smart, talented, and brings years of tech experience to the important work she is doing now. Important work that supports women and girls everywhere. the world over, with something so necessary but so overlooked by those of us in our comfy homes and big bathrooms, you will be astonished.
