Wow!!! So close and yet so far!!! I swear, it's been all the stuff AFTER the actual writing that has been a huge leap forth for me professionally!!! Managing the back and forth and small details of the edits, cover, promotion, etc has been so exciting... and also a bit anxiety producing!!!!! I'm super pumped to be this close to seeing the final final final book product!!!
I have to admit... it's been the behind the scenes work of publishing a book that was a million times harder than writing it!!!
I wrote this puppy pretty quickly. It was based on work I had done with my clients, one in particular who was really having amazing release from journaling her thoughts about food. I turned that into a facebook challenge, and from there it was basically packaging it up into a book. (I do realize that is the hard part for some people, for me, this was the cake.)
However... the editing (multiple rounds) was difficult. I found it tedious. And even just the paperwork to get the copyrights and ISBN in order were difficult for me to complete!! They're not even that complicated!!! Haha!
I'm so excited about my book to be released in just a few more weeks (21 days until my 21 day journal is released!). I love that I have been able to transform my work with clients, one in particular where we used a lot of journaling exercises to help her release the guilt that was making losing weight difficult for her, into a beautiful and practical journal that any woman can now use.
So, I'm super grateful for the support of my branding and business coach Sacred Branding and also my book publishing coach Leila Summers - this project would not be coming to fruition with so much grace if it weren't for you both!
I help busy, ambitious leaders to step off the emotional eating roller coaster, so they can lose weight and keep it off, still eat all the foods they love, and finally find the work life balance they crave.
