Cheryl, tell us about your book?
It’s way too common; the woman who simply exists instead of living a life that fulfills her. She is laden with guilt whenever she thinks about giving to herself, so she does what she knows best – takes care of others and neglects her own needs and desires. Those dreams she had before “life happened” are buried deep in her mind and soul. She’s living her life all over the place, but nowhere at the same time. “Have Your Cake & Eat it Too” is a sassy, easy-to-read guide will help you to be happy, successful, and satisfied. It will change the way you look at your relationships, and your career, and it will connect you to your power to change your life.
How did you come up with the idea for this book?
The topic of the book began as a seminar talk for my Permission Granted annual women’s empowerment seminar. Over the years, the topic became popular and the most requested so I decided to turn the message into a book so that I can empower more women who are tired of the status quo!
What was the most difficult aspect of writing this book?
The difficult part of the writing the book is dedicating the time to do it. As a graphic & web designer, business coach and empowerment speaker my schedule is always tight. So, time was the toughest part. I had to set a date and plan an event around so that I could make it happen.
Why do you write?
I don’t consider myself a writer per se but a woman on assignment to empower women around the world and writing is a part of it.
What valuable lessons do you want readers to learn from your book?
I want readers to understand that they have the power to change their own lives and not be conformed to mediocrity. Every dream that you have is possible and doable if you just activate the right ingredients and don’t give up during the process.
