It took me eight years to finish
and publish my third book in
2008, three years to finish and
publish my fourth in 2011.
In 2012 I published three
books in one year, and the
exponential upward trend continues.

Profit from the Positive:
Proven Leadership Strategies to

In the early stages of bringing my book to life, Gina helped me find my authentic voice. “Write what you want to write, not what you think someone else wants to read,” she advised.
When the book started to take shape, Gina encouraged me to send it out for reader feedback. She walked me through a set of criteria for choosing my readers and reminded me that I didn’t have to accept everyone’s feedback. However, if several people are saying the same thing, then I had better listen.
As my co-author and I were polishing the final manuscript, we heeded Gina’s advice and read our manuscript aloud. We caught typos, inconsistent tense and other irregularities we missed when reading the manuscript solely inside our heads. Our editor actually said our first draft was “elegant,” due in part to this process.

I struggled for more than a decade to organize my thoughts and experience into a usable manuscript. When Gina listened to me explain my vision she persisted for weeks until the work was fully sculpted the way I envisioned it. When I became blocked, she ran me through exercises until the words flowed again.

85 Years Under the Sun
(Create Space, July 2012)
Two years ago, I picked up one of Gina’s books and decided, mainly for my children, to write about growing up during the Depression and WWII. Through the act of writing I also discovered that I wanted to share my ideas about life and business resulting from those experiences.
depending on where you are in your process:
You’ve got a book “in you” and you need a jump start and guidance getting it out of you and written down.
You’ve started a book but it has stalled and you want to jump start it and…keep going…
You’ve completed your book and now that ePublishing is easy, with no barriers to entry, you’d like help publishing it electronically.
An organic yet deliberate practice of play, metaphor and rhythm as the way in to the sweet spot: joyful productivity.
• First month is assimilating and practicing a new approach
• Second month is entering a rhythm of practice
• Third month is continuing that rhythm while stage setting for continued productivity
once the coaching engagement concludes.
*Three months; minimum engagement: one month
We chat twice a month (30-minute phone sessions) and work via email throughout the month.
Let’s get started!
We can talk about it, dream about it and dissect the fine print. In the end, only action satisfies our longing.
