Featured Quotes

“Maybe you set yourself up to say, “This year I’m going to make $1,000 a month as an author”. That is a very reasonable goal to go after. Maybe you want to just do $500, whatever that is. If you are not focused entirely on that goal and get distracted by other things, you’ll never meet or exceed that goal because you’re trying one thing, then the next, then the next, then the next. As an antidote for that, focus. Focus your attention for periods of time. In this case these next 30 days. What can you do in order to remove the distractions so that you’re focusing so that you’re going to, your chief goal is to hit that goal? Don’t allow anything else to distract you from that.”

“I want to reiterate for you as an author, you may be doing this solo. I want to encourage you to stay encouraged with fellow authors and others who are along the same line with you that you’re like, “Oh man, I don’t know if I’m staying on track”. “
