Market Mondays: Trust and Strategize

Untitled design copy

Greetings my amazing writing creatives!  It is such a joy and pleasure to have you here today so you can get your book into the right hands.  Your success is important to me because your dream realized is what feeds my happiness.  It’s a win-win!

The main theme of today is for you to trust yourself, the universe, and key players in your life.  Now is the time to focus on that trust so you can create a rock solid strategy plan for yourself.  Some people look outside themselves for validation, and wonder why certain events in their life is not working the way they envisioned.

Ask your spirit for the direction you need to take.  Ask your spirit for validation that you’re on the right track though the appearance of signs in your life.  For example: if you want to know that you’re on the right path with your virtual program, ask your guides to show you signs as events unfold.  Be sure to define the sign (i.e. butterflies, a number, an animal, or whatever is unique to you) so you know it is the spirit showing up in your life to keep you on your correct path.

Everything you need to succeed is all around you.  All you need is a strategy on how to get where you are going. – Melissa Halstead

The Art of Trusting and Strategizing

Writing a book or creating a virtual product that people will buy can be tricky for some and easy for others.  The key focus to knowing what to write for your book or virtual product, where to submit your book, when to launch your book or virtual product, and whether to know if you have a viable idea or not — comes down to trusting your gut/oracles and strategy.
