2015 was big. The book was published and launched, made it's debut at the Book Fair International Miami then released to major online retail outlets. While this would be mediocre to some people ( 'cause there is always someone ready to negate your efforts), this was major for me. It takes guts to pour from your heart, put your name on it and show it to the world while trying to maintain some kind of autonomy in a world where peoples lives and talents are dissected at the speed of light.
Someone asked me “Are you trying to get on Oprah?”, to be honest, I’m not looking for any of that to happen. If it’s God’s will and I get to be on a major platform, cool. If not, cool. My desire is that this book will encourage the discouraged and to help the helpless. I cover unrelenting single hood to job loss and unpredictable finances to name a few. If one person walks away with this book and tells me it helped them through a rough patch then I’ve accomplished my mission. And so far, hundreds of people are positively affected by this project. If you ask me what’s next, I will tell you that I desire for thousands of people to be affected and maybe even millions by this one little book.
If you bought a copy, tell a friend to buy one too. Spread the word. I don’t have a multi platform ministry replete with a staff of social media managers, promoters and a large congregation to create demand. I’m just a believer allowing God to work in and through me to help others ( while doing my own post boosting and other cool automated promotion stuff Facebook allows me to do).
I pray 2016 will be a great year for “Lessons”. From hundreds of people to thousands of people. From small platforms to large ones.
This is only the beginning!!
