Not a lot of photos of us from Day 3 because it was filled with the click clack of keyboards and Salsa Guitar piped in the background, with the occasional sound of tears or excitement or questioning. Also fuzzy robes and slippers and no bras...
Here's what I discovered: that this required many sides of me to engage all at once...intuitive, coach, mentor, peer, editor, publisher, writer, strategist, visionary. There was never a moment in 3 long exquisite days where I wasn't using them all.
And I'm not tired but energized from opening up so much. I understand now how different the reality was from my vision and moving forward I will only invite 2 or 3 authors at a time. Because that level of love and attention is what I love giving, I've always been one to value personal and smaller groups...which also means that these first two got a smoking deal.
The two women who came brought incredible projects to the table and we have a plan and timeline in place to publish their books by September. For the next 6 months I get to continue to engage all parts of me to help shepherd these books into the world.
In other news, I also finished writing one of my books this weekend too, "Writing The Damn Book". I've got my team ready to dive in and publish that in the next few weeks!
So I'm back from the vines... Looking forward to doing it all over again, filled with gratitude and love and really good food and wine.
