Driving to Success E-book Launch Event

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

I can't believe that there are only 15 more days until my book is released. Since I've been writing it off and on for the past 10 years, it almost seems surreal to be at this point.

Check the Spirit Driving Institute site for details about the e-book launch of Driving to Success: Let Your Spirit Take the Wheel on May 20th. I've included details on the special offers from me and my partners if you purchase on that day. Also, you'll be able to take a look at the soon-to-be-launched Spirit Driving Network membership site.

I have so many great things planned - for May 20th and beyond. Hope that you'll come along for the ride and Let your Spirit Take a Spin in 2010!


When You Achieve Your Mission, is Your Business on Earth Finished?

While putting the finishing touches on my book layout this weekend, I began to think about this question. I do explore destiny vs. free will, but don't specifically explore the afterlife as it relates to your Mission.

We all have some type of Mission to fulfill. This leaves me with a question that can be asked in two ways:

  1. Does everyone get to achieve their Mission?
  2. When you achieve your Mission, is your business on Earth finished?

If we think about people we know personally that have passed on, I'm sure you can answer those questions quickly. There are people that pass on much earlier than we think they should have. Those folks may have made a mark on the world, but may not have achieved their Mission. On the flip-side, there are folks that have lived long lives, but also may not have achieved their Mission for a variety of reasons.

So, if someone lives their life and doesn't figure out how to express their Mission, does that mean their life didn't have any meaning? I doubt that it is that cut-and-dried. Even in the process of figuring out what to do, you come across some life lessons that can make a difference (for yourself and the Universe).

I don't have any brilliant answers for this one, but am curious about what others think of these questions.


Interview on LadyPreneur International

I had a wonderful time talking with Monique Hunt (Dr. Nique), founder of Ladypreneur International last week. She was gracious enough to do a profile about me and my book, Driving to Success: Let Your Spirit Take the Wheel.

In my Next Top Spiritual Author book pitch, I mention a colleague who said that my book concept could take off like the Chicken Soup for the Soul series. Dr. Nique is that colleague. She and I talked for a little over an hour. It went so quickly since the discussion was lively, on point, and in Spirit.

I encourage my readers to check out the Ladypreneur International Web site. You can join the site for free and network with other like-minded female entrepreneurs.

NOTE: I am not being compensated for this. I just support Dr. Nique's mission and her passion for bringing spiritually-conscious, female entrepreneurs together.

E-book Launch on May 20, 2010

My book, Driving to Success: Let Your Spirit Take the Wheel will be published as an e-book on May 20, 2010 to coincide with Albuquerque's Car Care Month! To celebrate the launch, we have a lot of fun things going on.

  1. Every day from April 5, 2010 to May 20, 2010, I will be posting short quotes from my book or my other writings called SpiriTweets on both Twitter and Facebook. Feel free to Retweet or re-post.
  2. I am participating in the Next Top Spiritual Author Competition. You can read about and watch a video on me and my book. Of course you can also VOTE FOR ME!
  3. I want to hear from others who consider themselves Spirit Drivers. After reading about Driving to Success and watching my author video on the Next Top Spiritual Author site, come back to this post to declare yourself a Spirit Driver. All you have to do is post a comment below that answers the question: How did I let my Spirit drive today?
  4. I'll select 3 people that post the best responses to be interviewed for the e-book launch on May 20, 2010. (Psst, you'll even have the chance to promote yourself and your business, if you wish.)
  5. At 5:30p PDT / 8:30p EDT, we will be holding our monthly "Is Your Spirit Driving Your Business or Career?" Webinar and having a celebration of the book launch.

Sound like fun? Let's get started!

The Search for a Cover Designer

Since I'm close to finishing my manuscript, I've decided to start the search for a book designer for Driving to Success: Let Your Spirit Take the Wheel. I've received referrals from other authors and have performed my own research. So far the response is good. I'm always impressed by those who have an artistic flair.

Once I have a close-to-final concept, I'll use the cover and a sample chapter to continue drumming up interest in carrying my book.

If you are a cover or interior designer who is interested in submitting a quote, feel free to contact me.

Also, if any other authors have suggestions for a stellar cover or interior designer, you can post them in the comments.

We just launched our new Spirit Driving Institute Web site. You'll find information on upcoming books and joining or facilitating a coaching group. You'll be able to register online for our upcoming introductory and series Webinars on Driving to Success: Let Your Spirit Take the Wheel.

In the coming months, we plan to expand the Web site to build more of a community around the Spirit Driving concept. Stay tuned.
