Five Question Friday: Publishing, Mentorships, Calling And Creative

Five Question Friday

Each month I answer five incredible questions from the listeners of our show. We cover everything from branding and blogging to family and finances. But today’s episode is focused on publishing, mentorship, calling, and creative.

Here are the five questions I answered:

1. From Joshua in Orange County, CA:
“You talk a lot about mentorships. But how do you find someone to take on this role in your life? Any tips?”

2. From Kristen in Sarasota, FL:
“Having successfully authored and published a couple of books now, I was wondering if you have any advice for new authors on how to decide between self-publishing or seeking a deal with a known publisher?”

3. From Alexandria in Chicago, IL:
“You stated in an article that “a journey without a destination is called lost.” Well, I’m halfway through you and Veronica’s books “Find Your Calling” and I have lots of ideas on what I could do, but I still can’t determine what I should do. What tools can someone use to determine the right path forward?”

4. From Nikki in Tustin, CA:
“I’m struggling with originality. Any tips on how to stay creative and not turn into a copycat?”

5. Jessica in Vail, CO:
“Being self-employed often means working from home—what are your tips to working effectively in the midst of family and distractions.”
