I am preparing for the release of my first book entitled “Success on Your Own Terms: 6 Promises to Fire Up Your Passion, Ignite Your Career, and Create an Amazing Life,” hitting the shelves of stores on June 23, 2014. The book is being published by CareerPress and is already available for pre-order on Amazon.com.
The premise behind the book is simple. Years ago as I mentored people, I found that a common question, particularly for those in early stages of their career was ‘How do I attain success as you have?’ I didn’t have an answer…nor did I find one as I sought counsel from my mentors. I began to write about my journey and the lessons I learned along the way and as I wrote, I discovered that my successes were fueled by 6 key promises that I now keep to myself. This book goes through each of those promises, beginning with your passion (which often is tied to your gifts and talents) and carrying through to philanthropy (or giving back).
While the book is not available until June 23, 2014, I am quickly becoming a student of the game 🙂 and appreciating that in the publishing business pre-orders are valuable and this I encourage your early support to help begin driving momentum. Stay tuned as launch plans take shape along with an online support network in conjunction with the book.
