Motivational Monday; Getting the Help you Need

Hello Readers!!

Welcome to another Motivational Monday. Let’s talk motivation!

Don’t be afraid to ask for help, hire help. As we advance in this business, some things will become overwhelming. Sometimes we need the assistance of another professional or an assistant. I realize that it’s not easy to get the help you need in this business and I do realize that some people just aren’t cut out for helping. But don’t allow this to discourage you. Reach out. Ask anyway.

Google who or what you need. Find out who offers what and request their services. We can’t always do it all. Sometimes we have to take a step back and allow others to help us.

Use today to rearrange some things and humble yourself enough to know when you need assistance!

Motivational Monday; Don’t be Afraid to Research!

Hello Readers!!

Welcome to another Motivational Monday. Let’s talk Motivation!

Today I want to encourage you to make Google your best friend. Research is the cheapest and easiest way to learn and advance in your career. It’s okay to hire other people to find or do things for you. But the best way to learn is to do it yourself.

We all have room to grow in this business and there’s so much we can learn. Many authors branch off from writing and do editing or publishing or marketing.  Even if you plan to stay right at writing for the rest of your career, still take time to learn new things and new ways to do things in this business.

I like to tell my clients to learn every area of the business. Even if you don’t plan to do the work yourself, you should still know how it’s done.

Make researching a part of your career. If you are researching, find time to read at least one book a month about the business you are in. It helps!

Motivational Monday; Engage with your Readers!

Hello Readers!

It’s motivational Monday. Let’s talk motivation!

Today I want to encourage your to engage with your readers. I am a huge fan of James Patterson and Joy Deja King. I’ve talked to Joy numerous times. I have yet to have a conversation with James Patterson. Not that it won’t happen. 🙂 I dream big.

But when I was able to talk with Joy so many times, I was overjoyed that she would talk to me or respond to my messages. I felt so good. Readers really enjoy this. So don’t get too “big headed” that you can’t talk back to your readers. Engage with them. Create a way that you can have a conversation with them. Try doing this individually. If they post something about you or your book, comment back. Let them know you see it and acknowledge them!

The next workshop is coming up on March 6th. Help me Create a Page Turning Novel. It’s four weeks of fun you don’t want to miss! Sign up today!

Motivational Monday; Changing your Thought Process

Hello Readers!!

Welcome to another Motivational Monday. Let’s talk Motivation!

Changing your thought process can be a little difficult if you are stuck in your ways. This isn’t really a bad thing. Some of us have years of experience and we only know things to be one way. But if you are going to be mentally strong, you have to learn to change your thought process.

This business is cut throat. It’s hard and it’s challenging. But if you have the mindset of feeling like a failure, never being able to do the right things, constantly struggling, you will sink yourself further into that hole. You’ve got to learn to speak positivity into your literary life so that you can see the goodness in it. One month of bad book sales doesn’t determine your career. One bad book review doesn’t determine your book. Learn to take the good with the bad and move on. I want to challenge you today to try to speak positivity into your literary career. Do this everyday, with everything you face. And remember why you started writing int the first place!

Motivational Monday; Keeping a Journal

Hello Readers!!!

Welcome to another Monday! Let’s talk Motivation!

So I am a journaling lover! I love to journal and blog. But the fun thing about journaling and blogging is that it keeps you writing and can keep you motivated. If you like to write, just in general, this hobby can keep you motivated on a continuous basis.

Today I am encouraging you to journal. Keep yourself motivated by writing everyday. Different topics, your thoughts, anything to keep the creative writing juices flowing and to keep you motivated. If you can’t motivate yourself, who can!

Start journaling!!

Motivational Monday; New Month, New Goals!

Hello Readers!!!

Welcome to another Motivational Monday! Let’s talk motivation.

I read somewhere that January 2017 was just a trial month. That February was actually the first month of the year. 🙂 I can believe it!

I’m a strong believer in Monday being a great day to start something new. I can also understand why most people have the Monday funk. Being productive everyday is hard work. I get it. But Monday is the best day to start over and start something new. I recently started a new workout challenge for the month of February. I was thinking, it doesn’t hurt to have a writing or business challenge this month as well. Like I said it’s hard to be productive everyday, but today is the first Monday of the month. Why not start being productive today?

Use today to start a challenge for your business. What could you do better in February? What more does your business need? I encourage you today to get a little more hands on with your brand and business and challenge yourself to get to the next level. 2018 will be here before you know it. Don’t waste time!!
