You always remember your first.

Nope, we’re not talking about sex AGAIN this week. Ha!

I’m talking about the first time you dive into something creative. When you take a big, bold risk. When you put your heart and mind on the line. When you say YES to your potential.

For me, when I launched the Book Proposal Blueprint group program two years ago–I honestly had zero expectations. It was a pandemic pivot to meet people where they were in that moment. It was also a way to give them (and me) community. 

This week on Bound + Determined, we’re talking about first books and first leaps. AND, speaking of firsts, this week’s guest was a member of my first Book Proposal Blueprint cohort, and she was also the first of the cohort to get a significant book deal. She holds a special place in my heart. 

And wouldn’t you know it, talking about potential is her jam!
