This is Book Three in My Life Adventures Series. Isn’t it exciting?

When I wrote my first book, “fiftysomething: The Unknown, Dreams, and Paths,” I had no idea what my life adventures would be or how many books I’d write about them, but that is the beauty and power of the written word and getting it out there into the world!!


This particular book was written two years ago. I offered it as a free PDF download to anyone who registered for it. Nearly 100 people did. Now, that may not seem like many to you, but almost 100 people have read it—and that means the world to me!

Before the end of last year, a friend and I decided to make a list of SMART goals for 2014. You may have heard of these: Specific; Measurable; Attainable; Realistic; and Timely. We would be accountable to each other and share our progress each week.

Well, as our individual businesses began to grow, the weekly accountability went out the window; however, we do check in at least every two weeks — seems we have more successes to report.

Also, as my business began to grow, I put off a personal goal — getting this book published on Kindle. I knew in the back of my mind that May 31 had been the deadline; and although I worked on getting the book Kindle-ready, I came upon a technical block to that final step — where I wanted the book to open to, or the “start” of it, would not set correctly.

Yesterday, June 1 I was bound and determined to figure out that technical difficulty. And I did!

So, even though I am two days late in achieving my goal of getting this book on Amazon’s Kindle,


Without writing The Acceptance Factor, I don’t think I could have. Why? Because I had to accept the fact that I was behind schedule, hadn’t achieved my goal on time, and was a disappointment to myself! Writing and following my own process proves that it works!

  1. Set a goal.
  2. Establish the SMART details.
  3. Find an accountability partner.
  4. Accept where you are.
  5. Keep going.
  6. Celebrate your accomplishment — even if you missed your deadline.

The Acceptance Factor is finding that serenity within and beyond to achieve any goal or dream you may have. It’s releasing what once was and had been so you can find true joy and happiness.

Don’t take my word for it. Go to Amazon right now and get your copy — and your free gift. And when you’re done reading the book, I’d be honored to have you submit a review on Amazon.

Thank you so much!

To your writing success,
