Do you have a 'personal story' that may help others going through a similar experience?
I have been totally blown away by the lovely feedback that I have received since I shared my own personal story in 'Whoops, There It Goes Again'. So much so, that I have decided that I would love to help others share their own personal stories of how they got through the bottom dropping out of their worlds. I want to compile a series of small inspirational books that will help others who are going through the same journey.
What kind of personal stories are you looking for?
Anything from divorce, cheating spouses, domestic violence, abuse, bullying, cancer, disease, death of a child or loved one, losing your business, redundancy, bankruptcy, eating disorders and depression, (just to name a few!) It doesn't matter what the 'trauma \ bad or sad event' is, just that you have managed to get through it and are still smiling.
How will you collect the stories?
Firstly, I will send you a list of the questions that I would like to ask, so you have time to think about your responses. Then, I can either interview you via a video link, (so we can use it on YouTube or as a Podcast, as well as in the book) or via an audio link, (so we can either transcribe the interview for the book, or ideally, use it as a podcast as well.) Or, you just answer the questions in writing. Completely your choice!
What kind of questions will there be?
If you would like to help, and inspire, others by sharing your story, please submit your details below. I am looking forward to hearing about your journey!
I really loved this book! I could relate to Jo's story on so many levels and I really think it's a must-read for anyone, especially if you're ready to move forwards and make some real positive change in your life.
Jo Richings. What can I say. .... a well written account of lifes ups and downs written in an honest and easy read way. Everyone, should have a copy of this to remind us of what to do when we get thrown that darn curve-ball!. Or, should I say ... those curve-balls!
The self-help/positive thinking book category is a crowded one, but Jo Richings's offering stands head and shoulders above the rest. What I like is that it's not all fluff, like some self-help books. It is packed with practical advice, exercises and examples, all from someone who has faced many challenges and maintained a positive focus throughout. I highly recommend this book..
Whoops’ is a refreshingly honest take on the concept of self-help from a person who has clearly walked the path of experience. A mix of personal stories and easy-to-apply tools and techniques, this book is designed to guide you through change in a way that suits you best. Rather than a linear approach, you can pick and choose the sections that you need to create a plan that resonates with your individual situation. If you are feeling unsatisfied with life and are ready to put in the effort to bring about positive change, I can’t recommend this book more highly.
