Out of My Comfort Zone: Becoming a Published Author

2019-07-22T22:11:07+00:00 By |Parenting, Speaking, Success|

I sometimes find that when I tell people I’m a writer, they ask “Oh that’s cool, what’s the name of your book?”

Until now, I had to say that I hadn’t published a book before and that I do a “different” kind of writing.

Now, I’m excited to announce that my first co-authored book, Out of My Comfort Zone is being released on August 12, 2019!

In it, myself and 9 other women share stories and lessons learned from stepping outside of our comfort zone in our life or business. Mine is a little of both.

What’s my story?

Did you know that I once resolved myself to the fact that I would be a stay-at-home-mom forever? Yep! After having my second child, I didn’t want the challenge of trying to juggle the demands of a 9-5 job and the even bigger demands of rising 2 toddlers on next to no sleep.

So I chose what I thought was the easier path: to become a stay-at-home mom!

“I had bought into the “Stay-at-Home-Mom” Kool-Aid…and I chugged!!! For eight months, I did everything for my family and kids, often on three hours of broken sleep (at best). I never went out with friends. I never went to the spa. I never exercised. I never left the house…I needed to take control of my life again, to rediscover my spark and seize opportunities that would make my uncomfortable life comfortable again.”

My contribution to the book is my story about how I made my uncomfortable life, comfortable again!

Do you want a copy?

We’re pre-selling the kindle version of the book on Amazon right now. I will be posting links on my website and on my social media for how you can purchase physical books when it’s released on August 12.

I can tell you that anyone who purchases the kindle book in pre-sale will get a discount on the Physical copy!  Stay tuned for details on that!

(Wanna know a secret: I’m being published in another co-authored book about “Success” that comes out later this year… AND I’m working on my own book too. My book will be sharing my signature marketing system which I’m working on. In it I will share my tried and tested steps and tips to making content marketing easy, sustainable, profitable, and fun. Stay tuned for more on that soon!)
