In January I took a step of faith, put money where my mouth was literally and figuratively, and joined the first Hope*writers Mastermind (HWM) group. A “Mastermind” is a group of people that gather together to learn from each other, have similar goals, and work hard to accomplish them. In our HWM group, we also receive one on one coaching and group coaching from Emily P. Freeman, Gary Moreland, and Brian Dixon. All have written books, one is a business coach, and Emily is a very successful author and podcast host. The three of them lead hope*writers, which is its own online community of writers and speakers. I joined that group in October.
I have been writing, journaling, blogging, and speaking for several years, but I had not really shared it with the world. I have been convicted to write a book, but also to share God’s faithfulness through our journey with Toby over the last 13+ years.
Writing a book has always been a dream of mine, but I did not realize until this year, that there’s so much more to being published than just writing a book. You need an audience, and you need to meet a need for that audience, which is hopefully why you are here!
