A year ago almost to this day, I signed a contract with Self Counsel Press to write a book on home staging for their Start & Run a Business series. Today I handed over the final galley proofs and now it is in their hands. It is due for publication February 2011. It was a dream on my ‘Bucket List’ and now that I have achieved it, I already have another book in mind!
My intention with the book is that existing home stagers, newbies and want-to-be stagers will find some business strategies or ideas in the book that will propel them forward on their road to success. If they are off track, I hope the book gets them back on track!
Over 10 years ago I took a big leap of faith and left a ‘secure’ corporate job and started out part time decorating, doing redesign and staging. I have truly loved doing the work. Being an entrepreneur is not for the faint of heart. It takes persistence, focus, action and a strong positive belief system that you can be successful. It can be a rocky road, with detours along the way and even speed bumps to stop the idea avalanche. Yet everything that has happened in my business – the good and the challenges has all made me stronger and I have immense faith in who I am.
For those of you who are going to buy my book I THANK YOU in advance. If you find yourself in a position where you know you can fast track with me as your coach and mentor, I look forward to serving you in that capacity. You can find me at www.EmpoweredWomenInBusiness.com.
