Birth of ‘the baby’


Ahhhh.

That’s the sound of relief from the ‘birthing’ my new ebook, “YOU Can Become a Freelance Writer in 60 Days,” which was loaded onto Smashwords’ website just yesterday.

It was a grueling task but, like any birth, well worth it.

I’m thrilled with my ebook! I know there are several other books and ebooks on the topic but none of them have my particular story, my wit, my past – and that makes mine unique. It’s one of the things I talk about in the ebook: We all have our own story to tell, our own way of telling it – so in essence that qualified us to become writers in our own right.

I’ve had people ask me how I did it, how I broke through and became a writer (as if it’s some magic bullet). And I tell them the same thing I’m going to tell you: I made up my mind to write. I don’t mean to minimize it, but that’s pretty much how it began.

Sure, there are other things I had to implement: a structured plan, tenacity, determination¬† and (I think this is the most important part) humility to realize that I didn’t have all the answers (or none at all quite frankly).

To put it simply: it took some doing..but not much more of ‘a doing’ than working for someone else and making their dreams and goals a reality.

So there you have it: how I became a freelance writer – and it took FAR longer than 60 days – and that’s why I was determined to write this ebook…so that others (like you) can dodge the missteps that I took and propel to writing success much quicker than it took me.

If you’d like a glimpse of what my ebook has to offer, just download it here and read how YOU Can Become a Freelance Writer in 60 Days and start making your life over.

I did…and it was well worth it.

All the best,

Livin’ the Dream! with internet marketer Paul Godines.

Smile…and then start talking…


It happened suddenly.

I was coming out of a meeting with a client, when a most charming and friendly gentleman walked pass.

“Hey, how have you been?” he asked.

“I’m fine, how are you?” I responded, not knowing whether I really knew him, or whether it was that his face was familiar. It must have shown on my face because his next statement was, “I know you. Where do I know you from?”

“Well, you look familiar to me, but you might be getting me confused with my twin sister [I actually HAVE a twin sister].”

“Hmmm. Where have you worked?”

“The House of Representatives,” I responded. He answered quickly: “That could be it,” to which I said, “Okay, that’s my sister. I never worked for The House.” (Frankly, he just SEEMED like a House of Rep type of guy…whatever that means.)

And that’s how my latest endeavor went into full throttle. Turns out “Bill” is an internet marketing guru. Having learned of my new eBook, he wanted to know whether it’d been published.

“Not yet. Still looking for someone to help me load it online.”

“Well, I can do that for you. Have you also…”and Bill began unleashing a series of inquiries the likes I’d never heard.

…and that’s when realized I had absolutely NO CLUE about internet marketing. But the good news was that I now had a real professional to help steer me in the right direction. Since that encounter just two weeks ago, I’ve totally revamped my eBook, hashed out a marketing strategy and feel as if I have a new life just over a most reachable horizon.

And to think it all started with a smile and lite conversation.
