The really cool thing about September is I got a great idea for my . . . → Read More: September Results

I believe that failures aren’t a bad thing if you don’t let them get you down . . . → Read More: June Plans

Writing a disclaimer has been the most worrisome aspect of writing my eBook. I am totally paranoid about being sued! I scrapped together bits and pieces of other peoples’ disclaimers and then had an intellectual property lawyer review it. It turns out the lawyer was not worth the time and money.
