I do a lot of one-on-one Writing Adventure Discovery Sessions where I’m working with people to discover their best next move – that one thing that is not just a next step but the best next step.
And no, it isn’t always working with me!
But when I feel I can offer support: VIP coaching, a product, book publishing, copywriting, etc., I do share what that would look like. As well as the investment.
And that’s where the rubber really meets the road. Is your dream of writing and publishing your book really worth it? Or not?
I’m not talking price. I’m not talking sacrifice. Because price and sacrifice, frankly, don’t get the job done. You don’t sacrifice to get your dreams but you do invest in them.
Let me tell you about investment:
Beyond my degree in Creative Writing I’ve also invested in writing workshops all over the world. Time away from my family, airfare, tuition, and in the case of four weeks in Russia, FIERCE culture shock.
I published my first FIVE books while still working a full-time job. When I say “full-time” it was 35 hours a week from May – December and 60+ hours a week January – April. (I worked in my family’s tax practice.)
I haven’t watched TV in 8 years. I only recently picked up Netflix.
And classes, workshops, and trainings beyond my degree? It adds up quickly – and is well-over twice what I paid for my degree. Because my degree ONLY taught me how to write – not about business, marketing, or all the other things I need.
I look at all of this as an investment. It’s not price, cost, or sacrifice – it’s an investment that pays me dividends: financially, lifestyle, and dream-fulfillment.
Like the famous MasterCard commercials – fulfilling dreams really is priceless.
What are you doing to invest in your dream? What steps are you taking to meet it half-way?
See, the 19 published books, the international sales, the awesome clients, the best-selling books… It wasn’t an “overnight success” story. I wasn’t ‘discovered’ – I invested in my dreams.
If you’re not making a regular deposit in your Dream Account and investing time, energy, resources, and money, then it might be time to figure out the cost. Because there is a cost…
The cost of not doing it and living a life unfulfilled.The cost of not investing in your #dream is the cost of a dream unfulfilled. Click To Tweet
Let’s talk, you and I. I don’t charge to have a Discovery Session so it’s a non-dollar way to start investing in your dreams. I’m willing to invest in them. Are you?
