Writing a book is like giving birth. Think about it…you consider writing it for a while going back and forth wondering if you do or you don’t or if you’re actually ready for it. You think about all the things you need to do to prepare for it. You do research, you talk with friends about it, you think about the stories you want to tell, the message you want to share and you pray really hard that everything will turn out well.
Then you finally get started. It takes months to create and all the while you wonder if what you have to say will be loved and accepted by the world at large. Will they be ready to receive what you have to share? Will they understand why you are doing it? You share your fears with friends and family and they assure you that because it’s from your heart the world will have to love it.
Then the real labor begins. Your book goes to the editor and you wait. It comes back from the editor and the excitement builds. Then it goes to the printer and you wait. Then you get the proof in your hands and the excitement builds. Then you approve the proof and you wait. Then this wonderful box shows up and it is an exciting bundle of joy that gives you this elated giddy feeling and you can’t wait to share it.
Then the day comes for you to launch your book and present it to the world. You’re protective and loving all the while wondering what others will think of the amazing creation you’ve brought into the world. You are sharing a piece of yourself with the world and no matter how hard you try to say it won’t change you, your life will never be the same. You’ve given a piece of your heart to the world in hopes that everyone will love it and be kind to it, caring for it as much as you do.
Wednesday, October 5, 2016 I launched my very first book Connecting in 30 Seconds or Less, Crafting Your 30 Second Pitch. It was truly like giving birth! I went through all the wonder, all the worry, all the pain (the emotional pain, that is), and all of the excitement one would expect with giving birth to something that carries around a piece of your soul.
And now it’s time to raise it, to love on it, to share it with the world and help it grow. Just like giving birth, it doesn’t end there.
Connecting in 30 Seconds or Less, Creating Your 30 Second Pitch is a workbook designed to accompany the online class that will help people create their 30 second pitch and help you answer the question “So what do you do?” with clarity and confidence. We’ll work together online to help you identify your authentic message that will make a deeper connection with your audience and attract more attention to your business. You’ll learn a simple formula that I use with clients to help them become proficiently creative in changing up their message from time to time and some networking tips that will help you make better use of your time and effort. Get your copy of the workbook free with the purchase of the online course for the introductory price of $49.00 (regularly $199.00.)
