Premier Summits Live Event: July 20-26, 2010
Remember, all live events are updated at 9am Eastern Time (2 PM Greenwich Mean Time) every day. The events of the day will only be available starting at that time, for the next 24 hours.
I listened to Diana Fletcher “Stress Reducing Strategies for a Busy & Hectic Lifestyle”
Top points I gained from Diana:
- Make time to breathe deeply – put one hand on belly; inhale through the nose & exhale through the mouth
- Drink water – to hydrate the body; to correct false-cravings for food
- Create buffer time – after turning off electronic gadgets (including TV or computer), give myself quiet time before going to sleep.
I listened to Elizabeth Diamond “How to Create the Life of Your Dreams Using the Intentional Scrapbooking MethodTM”
Top points I gained from Elizabeth:
- Identity the picture of what success looks like and create the scrapbook page/vision board (or “collage” as Mary E. Knippel of Open Up To Your Creativity would say); find material for the platform (paper, cardboard, T-shirt . . . )
- Feel the joy when I use “I statement” to see my dream in my mind’s eye (Teresa’s example: “I am the female business owner who has given millions of dollars to thousands of charities worldwide.” This is my dream–to help people on the planet by being a creator of prosperity–like philanthropist Paul Newman and Newman’s Own Foundation.)
- Take a photo of myself while I am looking at my scrapbook page/vision board/collage and feeling the sensations of success; use the photo as inspiration. (Teresa’s example: “Before I found my agent and before my publisher found me through my agent, I did create ‘This is what I would look like as a published author’ pictures for myself. I’m happy to say that I celebrated my novel’s seventh anniversary in October)
Thank you to my sister who told me about Premier Summits – free online audio events!

Writing Career Coach Teresa here, waking up at 7:30am on Feb. 15, 2010 (day after the 3-day ultra motivating San Francisco Writers Conference). I invite everyone I talked to at SFWC to comment on this post and let the world know that you were there this weekend. Click on the title of this post to get the comment box.
Talking Tagline Coach Elisa Southard & I presented on the first day at 9:00am. “Build Your Fan Base Before & After Publication” What fun we had! We coached everyone to craft a purposeful talking-tagline to hook attention; this simple yet powerful tool helps writers communicate with agents, acquisition editors, booksellers, endorsers, media, prospective fans…with ease.
When the talking-tagline is used to link your name, I call this union the mission statement. So, when you comment on this post, be sure to show your full name, your website/blog address (the URL), and your mission statement.
Thank you, Michael Larsen & Elizabeth Pomada, a.k.a. publishing- community angels, for inviting Elisa and me to present at SFWC, seven straight years. Every year, we get to catch up with colleagues and receive inspiration from each other. High energy. High professionalism. Graciousness.
What woke me this morning was a high-concept for a book that would be perfect for colleagues Elisa Southard, Deborah Grossman, Barbara Santos, me, and my agent Stacey Glick. Top secret for now.
I’ll be writing more posts about SFWC. For the time being . . .
