In an effort to make January 2021 as magical as possible, I decided to follow oracle card guidance for a week. I was hoping to invite more synchronicities, more ease and more flow. I wanted my life to feel super FUN again.

Writing Your Book

You learn to write by writing. And by reading a ton of books. You can also take a writing course. How to Write Your Ebook in 7 Days by James Edwards has lots of great reviews.

Publishing Your Book

So far I’ve self-published all of my ebooks and paperbacks using Kindle Direct Publishing, also called “Amazon KDP” by most authors. You can publish kids books, coloring books, novels, and even coloring books and more using KDP. …


Small

This haunting memoir by Terry Iacuzzo vividly shows the reader what it’s like to grow up in a family of Psychics. From synchronized nose bleeds to get out of school, seances in the basement, to reading Tarot cards for thousands of celebrities in New York, Iacuzzo spills it all.

Terry’s family is an odd bunch. Her sister, Rosemary is a natural born medium who also has the gift of Psychometry (reading objects). Terry’s petulant brother, Frank (her “real mother”) is a gifted psychic who introduces her to Tarot Cards, which she uses to gain popularity with her classmates.

BOUNDARIES

Without boundaries, you won’t last in any business, job or relationship, let alone thrive. Boundaries are for you, about what you will and won’t do or accept from others. “These people will destroy you if you don’t have boundaries.”- …


“We’re almost there”, my Dad said as the car hugged the steep, winding road without guardrails. My stomach did a flip. You could see straight down the cliff next to the road. My mom’s stress was palpable. Of course you could also hear it because she yelled at my Dad to “slow down!” the entire way.

We were going to Dad’s new friend John’s house. The house was located on the far side of the big Island of Hawaii. My family lived in Kona, Hawaii at the time. I was 7 or 8 years old.

Usually when Hawaii comes to mind, you might think of tropical beaches, crystal blue water and palm trees. But John’s place was remote. It reminded me of the Stephen King horror movies I had seen on TV. …


Two years ago, I wrote a book under a pen name as an experiment. I told 2 people: my husband and my best friend.

You won’t find the book or the pen name here, because I’ll never tell. You see, that would wreck the experiment. But “her” books, despite having ZERO marketing, no website and absolutely no social media presence always outsell mine. She gets loads of reviews without asking. Ask any indie author and they will tell you, getting reviews from strangers takes a loooong time.

I don’t mind…I don’t write for likes…I do it because it’s fun and to make money. Without further ado, here’s what I learned from my pen name’s success. …

7 Things I Learned About Selling and Persuasion From The Girl Scouts

I had an interesting talk with a Girl Scout the other day. She was quite the hustler!

You see, I’ve never really given Girl Scout cookie sales tactics much thought before.

I just assumed that because the cookies are only available once a year — like the McRib — that people wait for them. And when they see a Girl Scout who has their favorite cookie, they buy a box.

But then I got to thinking, is there more to it than that?

That same day, I heard about a Girl Scout who sold over 20,000 boxes of cookies in one month! …

There, I said it. Jordan Peterson’s 12 Rules ruined my life…and I am so grateful.

You see, a few months ago my daily life felt like utter chaos. No, I wasn’t a homeless drug addict. But aside from my stable marriage tethering me to the earth, I allowed my “entrepreneurial lifestyle” mean that I had no order or structure in my day to day life.
