    This is awesome Valerie. It’s so great you are documenting the experience and sharing this with others so they too can take on the book writing journey. I also love your celebration of the milestones. Don’t have to be big, just set some goals and start kicking them!

      That’s right Emma. They don’t have to be big goals at all. And when I was writing the book, I would reward myself for every 1000 words written! Milestones help with motivation too.

    Great energy makes great efforts look easy. Although, I can see great hard work is behind this book! Well done.

    Congratulations on your book’s successful launch! It definitely deserves to be ranked at the top. I’ll be recommending your book as terrific resource for my trainees for the development of their own businesses!

    I had hoped to meet you at the ProBlogger Event but I had a prior work commitment on Saturday and there wasn’t enough time to track you down on Friday. Fortunately I’ve been able to attend your sessions “virtually” but missed out on connecting with you personally. I look forward to meeting you when our paths cross again!

    Thanks for all of your good work!
