Hi Lovies! There's a reason that I haven't blogged in a while....I finally finished my eBook and formatted it for the Kindle! My new eBook "The Ultimate A-Z Guide to Running a Lucrative Virtual Assistant Business" is now available on Amazon!! If you are a member of Kindle Unlimited, you can read it for FREE ($9.99 to purchase)!! Get your copy here!
This week was extremely emotional for me, I have so much weight on my shoulders with running a business, writing a book, client work and trying to work on our house daily that I had a couple of mini-breakdowns before all of this happened. Of course, I prayed through it asking God for his guidance. On Wednesday, I decided to take most of the day off of work and I was talking to my Mom about my business and my book and while I was talking out loud, I had a moment of clarity- I am meant to be a writer! How could I have not seen this all of my life? Once I had this moment of clarity, God reminded me of two dreams that he had given me about 9 months ago. The first dream was that I was in my home office and I was so happy because my new career was writing and I was getting paid for it! The second dream was that I was to become wealthy off of royalties- when I think royalties, I think about books, cds, etc. On my goals list at home, I have two goals- one is to become wealthy and the second is to help the less fortunate. I want to use my money to help others who have had a hard time in life - I know what that's like and I want to help others in their time of need.
Having God show me exactly where I need to focus in my career is a MAJOR breakthrough for me!! I had been struggling in my business because of being overwhelmed with so many people wanting me to work with them and I didn't want to stretch myself so thin that I had no time for God, my husband or even myself. It was causing me to have anxiety, so I started praying and God answered! (Like he always does!)
I can't even begin to tell you how exciting all o f this is for me! For those who don't know me, I've been writing since I was a little girl, mostly in my journals. All of those years being a nerd, getting the award for reading the most books in book clubs, being in spelling bees- all of it is paying off! I have also already written 1/8 of my new book- this one will be more of a chick lit inspirational type book based loosely on my life. I'm so excited to start my career as a writer!
Also, If you do read my new eBook, whether you purchase it or download it through Kindle Unlimited, I would love it if you would spread the word and also leave a review on Amazon. This would really help since I am a first time Publisher on Amazon.
I hope this post helps you to follow your dreams, don't give up! There were so many times that I had break-downs and just cried and prayed, but I never gave up. I just kept working even when I just wanted to lay in bed. Success is not for the lazy, working hard and praying is what got me to where I am now!
What are some of your hopes & dreams and what are you doing to work towards making them happen?
