After about a 20 minute conversation with Herb today, I’ve got a bit more clarity on my next moves. Even with a list and some sort of idea about what’s needed, I’ve been having some challenges with my next moves. That’s when a mentor is vital.

The value of experience is difficult to quantify. For a couple of days, I’ve thought that I was more slothful than productive but upon review, I needed some assistance with prioritization and implementation. I was looking to move in directions I hadn’t travelled(I’ve never had three books ready for publication at once) and I’ve been stymied.

Herb usually writes 3–5 titles at a time and has traversed my path before. I laid out the challenges I was facing and he offered some guidance. I’m grateful for those willing to share their experience.

Today, Thursday, May 14, I am grateful that:

Even though it’s late and I’m ready for bed, I’m completing my list. It’s important for me to write something everyday. I’ve done a bit of writing, sales copy and website content but not this list. I’ll be happy when it’s time to start publishing these on my site but for now, this will suffice.

Gary reached out and we had a chance to talk. He’s like a “big brother” and a true champion. I value his friendship and sage counsel. We were on the phone for well over an hour and it was refreshing.

My efforts, my work is nearing a phase of completion. I’ve been working and writing for months on end with no new releases. Now I’m at a point that in less than a month I can have at least two and possibly four titles published. It’s been a challenging road and I’ve not yielded, but it’s something that has tested my resolve. I’m happy I’ve not strayed far off course.

Who’s counsel do you trust?

When was the last time you’ve spoken?

In what specific ways did their advice accelerate your progress?

Be Great. Be Grateful!!!
