    The Four Dimensions of Energy

    The Four Dimensions of Energy

    Our performance barriers are often related to energy. Understanding the four dimensions of energy - physical (quantity), emotional (quality), mental (focus) and spiritual (force) - can help us identify and overcome what holds us back.

    I Wrote a Book! (plus, a bonus excerpt from The Fail-Safe Solopreneur)

    I Wrote a Book! (plus, a bonus excerpt from The Fail-Safe Solopreneur)

    On April 15, 2021, I accomplished a life dream by becoming a published author.

    In this episode, I share the four-year, behind-the-scenes journey of how an idea to write down my own rules for success (for my eyes only) became a #1 New Release book on Amazon, and what I've learned so far.

    One lesson, that I'm still processing, is that life dreams are necessary, but the journey of becoming - the doing - is the real reward. There will always be the next thing to chase. We never really arrive. So, why not let ourselves be more happy while chasing the dream too?

    I then share a 6-minute excerpt from The Fail Safe Solopreneur: 6 Essential Practices to Manage Your Well-Being Working for Yourself. The audiobook is narrated by me. You can get the book on Amazon (in Kindle and Paperback) and the audiobook on Amazon, Audible and iTunes.
