Top 5 Things I Learned While Writing My Book (#215)

Update: 2021-11-26


I believe there is a book in each and every one of us. We have a unique voice and an incredible story to tell—a story filled with experiences and lessons that the world should read. However, the task of book writing is daunting that most people don’t even take the first step. This is why I decided to record this episode because I wanted to share my top 5 learnings while I was writing my book. It was indeed a long journey, but truth be told, it was a fulfilling experience.

You Too Can Get Unstuck

My new book, “OWNER SHIFT – How Getting Selfish Got Me Unstuck“ is a philosophical memoir that reveals the secret to why so many entrepreneurs get stuck and how they can SHIFT to get free once again.

It tells the story of how I found myself in the Valley of Uncertainty, a place where many entrepreneurs end up stuck, confused and feeling sorry for themselves, like I did.

It was a place I hated but didn’t know how to climb out of.

Until a messenger that I barely knew and wasn’t looking for showed up and put me on the path that eventually led me out of that Valley and into a future that I owned and made my property.
