When did I become Aware of creating an ebook?
Four years ago I learned how simple it was to create a pdf from a document and call it an ebook! Its possible I could transform many blogs, workshops, and ideas into ebooks, how about you?
When did I Discover that it was doable and worth doing?
There is so much noise on social media, many ideas, plus plenty of mindfulness courses, so why another? I wanted to practise creating something simple and also beneficial for others, to:
- stay more present and less caught up in negative emotions,
- deepen their awareness and respond more skillfully to events in their lives
- develop a loving-kindness towards others
- nudge their creativity
How did I decide on my next steps (Direction)?
I wrote the text in google docs and originally transferred to Powerpoint and created a pdf. Recently I had a play and created the ebook in Canva. My mate Jackie put it on Designrr to have another play, however, this isn’t something I find easy to work with at the moment, so have published it via Canva again and then uploaded it to sell on Gumroad.
What did I do to make it work (Integration)?
I have been using Canva for a while now and have got quicker at creating with it.
How am I doing (Transformation)?
As a result of becoming more skilled at using Canva I am also delivering sessions to help people “Enhance Their Social Media & Marketing”.
The ‘Magic in Mindfulness’ ebook is also offered as a free download when people book a 10-minute mindfulness session online with me for £10. It is a good way to get a feel for each other! To date copies have sold from 60p to £15!
How did I share our learning with others/Who do I talk to about my project? (Together)?
