Featuring Niki Elliott, Ph.D., Author of “The Intuitive Mother”
If you’ve ever dreamed of writing a book and sharing your message through the power of the written word, this story is for you.
If you’ve started and stopped writing over and over again, and have files sitting in your computer that you know could help others, this story is for you.
If you let fears or excuses stop you from being the great author and messenger that you are, this story is for you.
I’m so grateful I had the foresight to attend a Lisa Nichols “Speak and Write” event in San Diego, CA in April 2012. I love Lisa and knew it would be a great event, but wasn’t sure why the call was so strong that I had to be there. I simply knew I needed to go.
It was there that I met a powerful, passionate woman named Niki Elliott, Ph.D. who recently wrote the following letter to me. I’m sharing it here with you so you can learn and be inspired by her.
Niki had her completed manuscript finished and sitting in her computer for YEARS… until we met. Here’s her powerful story…
“On December 31, 2008 at 5:30pm, I completed the final draft of my first book, “The Intuitive Mother: A 21 Day Spiritual Journey That Will Change Your Family Forever.” I felt so proud to accomplish my lifelong goal just in time to honor my 2008 New Year’s resolution.
“The Intuitive Mother” then sat on my computer for the next three years, patiently waiting for me to overcome my fear of exposing my personal challenges with motherhood to the world. I knew the book had the potential to bless millions of women, yet I allowed my internal critic to hold me back with countless excuses.
In April 2012, I had the pleasure of meeting Christine Kloser at a seminar for speakers and authors. I shared my story of fear and paralysis with the group. The crowd showered me with an unbelievable outpouring of encouragement and support. It was there that Christine approached me and said she wanted to help. In that instant, all of my excuses for playing small were stripped away.
For the next seven months, Christine shepherded my project through the editing and design process with exceptional attention to detail. Her team honored every request and produced a finished product that makes me tingle each time I hold a copy in my hands. I cannot say enough about Christine’s level of professionalism and talent as a transformational book coach and publisher. I have taken all of her teachings to heart and have profited tremendously from her advice.
On November 15, 2012, I received the first copy of “The Intuitive Mother” in the mail. I will never forget the day I came to recognize and honor myself as a published author. Two days after my first book signing, I received an email from a mother struggling with maternal depression.
She told me how grateful she was that I was willing to share my story to inspire mothers who suffer in silence. My book moved her to tears and offered specific action steps she could take to find her way out of her pain. No feeling can match the joy of knowing that a life has been transformed because I answered the call to serve others through sharing my story and publishing my book!
If you have a transformational story in your heart, yet you find yourself drowning in excuses, I highly recommend that you work with Christine Kloser. She definitely is a woman of integrity and action. Your dreams will be fulfilled under her compassionate guidance. Mine certainly have!”
So, now that you’ve heard Niki’s powerful story of overcoming fears and excuses, and saw how she then experienced the great gift of impacting lives with her book… I hope you’re feeling inspired to say YES to your publishing goals and dreams in 2013.
If you have that book sitting in your computer, or a plethora of ideas rolling around in your head, or an inspired idea that keeps you up at night… you owe it to yourself – as well as those you’ll serve with your message – to make THIS the year you see your words in print.
You can do it… I know you can.
