My (updated) Challenge

julie andrews sound of musicLet’s start at the very beginning, as Julie Andrews sang…. here is where I start my challenge:

I have written the first draft of a book about self hypnosis .

  • I have limited technical mastery.  And by “limited” I mean, I really don’t know what I am doing, ok!
  • I am determined that, while the world of self publishing is daunting, my will and determination will lead me on.
  • I think that everything is figure-outable – so I will figure it out.
  • I will probably make mistakes but I can learn from these.
  • I am willing to do what it takes to make my book into a seller online
  • I am terminally impatient but willing to do it one step at a time.
  • I want to share this journey with others who are navigating this terrain.
  • I have decided to publish online.  I blog about this decision here….

So here is the challenge:

My mission … which I do choose to accept…. is to self publish my book (SUCCESSFULLY) online by May 19th 2013. Update: done.   ish!

By that date, I will have created a strategic online marketing campaign, edited my masterpiece and formatted the book for online sellers.  On top of that amazing feat, I will also (drum roll please…) blog about my experiences and share any resources and tips that I pick up with my loyal blog readers who will number in the 100s 1000s as they literally hang onto my every post, willing me to succeed…. update … mmm, not so much

This mission will self destruct on May 19th 2013 in a flurry of tears and caffeine induced paranoia.   Or….. perhaps with a glass of champagne and a weekend at a swanky hotel in Queenstown, New Zealand.   Either/Or….. update… as of 2015, I am back….

ps.  I am a hypnotherapist and coach whose online office is at  Come and visit, you are more than welcome.  Tell you what, I will stick the kettle on….
