Are you allowing other people’s opinions to hold you back?


I am working with my mentor to get my book published this year. I have to confess I was working on this last year. However I was distracted from this goal by one persons comment. I can’t even remember who said it. They said there is no money in books.

 Yeah right why did I allow that to stop me. The value in the book is so much more than the money it may or may not make. The value comes from the learning you get as your write it. The value is what you get when your clients read it and the credibility it gives you.

Well I am very proud to say that I have been inspired by Karen Williams who shared with me a passion to write a book in January 201o and she has made it a reality her book launches on the 22nd March Secrets of Successful Coaches please check this out. The interviews that are coming through already are so useful.

Anyway I digress I want to produce a leaflet, then an Ebook and the real thing. The book will be part of a series of “That’s like what” The first one is going to be about  “Being a sole trader in a recession that’s like what?” with tops how to perform at your best.

Other ideas are Networking at your best that’s like what?

Teaching at your best that’s like what?

What needs to happen for you to unravel what is holding you back and take your business to the next level?


Ps.Please check out tomorrows blog with an article about Penny Gregory and her brief account of what its like being a sole trader in a recession with the support of Step by Step Listening.

Kind regards
