• Overnight success is a myth.
    I’m guessing YOU know that and I just want to make sure…
    Often we’re enticed by a number of things like:
    • Winning the lottery (remember the odds and if you’re still interested, remember to buy a ticket)
    • Promises of instant gratification (which you know in  your heart isn’t true but you want to believe it anyway — I know, I’ve been there, too)
    • The desire to have what others have (when really, we should be grateful for what we already have in order to allow for more)
    • Promises of quick cash online (have I mentioned lately that passive income is a lie?)
    • The next bright shiny object (you’ll know what this is for you and deep down you likely know success takes time, focus and dedication)
    I believe that overnight success takes about 12 years (I often joke about this and it’s getting more real as we celebrate the 12 year birthday of Write On Creative — here are 11 tips  for success that I shared last year on LinkedIn).
    We’ve all had great successes in our lives (I also believe that we determine our own success and when we fully embrace that, the real magic starts).
    So, let me ask YOU a few questions
    1. What is your greatest success? 
    2. What do you still want to achieve?
    3. What is your top TIP for success? 
    I’d like to explore how I can help you achieve what’s next for YOU. Leave your answers to the questions here and let’s explore the possibilities? I’d also like to hear if any of the “distractions” I mentioned have impacted your business? And  how long you’ve been in business?

      Seriously ask anyone who has achieved beyond their wildest dreams and expectations and they will admit as everyone says that they are definitely an overnight success! Of course it is normally after ten, twenty or thirty years of hard work!

      What is your greatest success? The question changes every year because as my priorities change my view on “greatest” success changes. I’m very proud of the tv shows I produced and how they changed peoples’ lives, I’m proud of the books and screenplays I’ve written. I’m proud of the courses I created to coach people live and digitally. And at this point in time my greatest success was making the decision to move to a new state to be near family.
      What do you still want to achieve? I’d love to see at least one of my romantic comedy screenplays on the big screen.
      What is your top TIP for success? Live in alignment with your values!
