What is your book about?

“Your Goal Guide” starts with that crucial first step in any goal journey: figuring out what it is you actually want. You can’t get what you want unless you know what that is! “Your Goal Guide” takes readers through my brainstorming and task-based system – The D*E*B Method – in order to set achievable goals and make a plan. DEB stands for Determine Your Mission, Explore Your Options, Brainstorm Your Path.

The second part of “Your Goal Guide” helps readers set themselves and their goals up for success, whether they want to start or build a business, change jobs or careers, become a known expert or achieve work-life balance. “Your Goal Guide” is an easy read, with a fun road trip theme. It includes worksheets, resources and even a Facebook group where you can share your journey and get additional support.

Learn how to:

  1. Figure out what you want.
  2. Make plans to turn goals into reality.
  3. Set yourself up for success.

Why should people read it? Who is the book for?

One of the biggest reasons goals fail is that people tend to overthink or under-think their goals. They don’t pay enough attention to their own wants, needs and passions. The book is designed to help those who are facing change, whether it’s by choice or circumstance, to embrace it and thrive. Through a combination of writing exercises and systems, “Your Goal Guide” takes readers with a process for setting, planning and achieving goals that is stress-free, easy-to-manage and even fun!

Single most important takeaway:

You have the power to change your life. When you choose yourself and take the time to figure out what you want, you are in a much better position to turn those dreams into reality!

Your motto is a short, snappy version of your mission statement. It’s your title, tagline, or theme. As you embark on your goal journey, your motto will help you stay on track. Use it as a compass, to assess and navigate the opportunities that come your way.
