Now if you don’t know, I have been providing coaching services for aspiring authors for about a year now. My coaching service teaches new authors how to self-publish, where to self-publish based on their unique needs, and how to reach their target market using social media.

I envy folks that have the level of confidence to be lone wolves. Being alone but never lonely comes with a sense of confidence that you can be in any situation and thrive.

I recently received EMDR for a traumatic childhood experience. I wanted something that was evidence-based that didn’t require me to talk through the gruesome details of the trauma (although I did anyway).
