It’s Pick My Brain Day during Birthday Week


Well, this was a fun exercise: I loved the email I got about finding my rap name … all you do is put “Lil’” in front of the first thing you ate in the morning. On Saturday, my client Dale Lidicker came to my once a month AuthorYOU Circles where I do free author/publishing coaching in my home bearing delicious cupcakes.  I saved mine for my birthday… and a fun breakfast (OK—I get it, not healthy—but it’s just one day). So, I’m now Lil’ Cupcake … ha! My John is Lil’ Burrito!
On Monday’s Author Mentoring Mondays, one of the callers asked how could she come in and work with me. So glad she asked … and I told her to wait until Wednesday … when she can book my time at a deep discounted consulting rate to celebrate the week … and so can you—if you play today.
So, here’s to all of you … your stories, your journeys, your sharing have all become part of my Career #6, the current love of my working life: Book Publishing Expert.
My gift to you today for being in my world is MY TIME:
