A little over 7 years ago, I woke up from a dream that detailed the exact topic for a book I had been wanting to write. A book that would tell my story of how I took the leap into entrepreneurship and help women entrepreneurs at the very beginning of their journey. Not a book that covered branding, marketing, or creating a new offer, but a book that would help them push past the fears, doubts, and other mental barriers that were holding them back.
A little over a year after I woke up from that dream, my book “Living Over Existing” was introduced to the world.
As you can imagine, a lot of life happens over the course of 7 years. I’ve made plenty of huge pivots in my business, I’ve gotten married and had a child. And let’s just say, life has kicked my ass in the process. I’ve battled anxiety and depression, struggled with imposter syndrome, and felt like I was constantly battling my fears.
Even though Living Over Existing was released over 6 years ago, I quickly realized there was so much more I needed to learn before that story could be complete.
After a year of re-writing the book, hiring a new editor, and honestly, procrastinating, I am really excited to announce that my “new” book, Living Over Existing: Push past fear, defeat self-doubt, and unleash your God-given Gift, is available for pre-order!
Throughout the past year of working on this book, I’ve gone back through and edited the original chapters to add more clarity and examples. And I’ve also added five new chapters to discuss topics like anxiety and imposter syndrome.
One huge lesson that I’ve learned since originally writing this book is that doing the work doesn’t stop! After I released the book, I thought that I had FINALLY defeated fear, but as soon as I let my guard down, all of those fears and doubts started to pop back up.
This is the book that teaches you not only how to push past some of these mental barriers but also how to make the process a part of your daily routine.
Living Over Existing is officially available on September 1, 2023, BUT you can pre-order the book now!
All pre-orders will come with 3-month access to my paid newsletter where I’ll be sharing my marketing plan for the book and more exclusive updates!
This is the book that I wish I had at the beginning of my entrepreneurial journey. Whether you are just getting started, looking to pivot, or growing your existing business, my prayer is that this book gives you the mental clarity that you need to continue going after what you want!
Cheers to a restful week!
