It’s incredibly surreal. Then all of these creative juices just started to flow out of me as soon as I finished revealing to my husband all of the different ideas that I’ve had and the ones I’ve been working on –yada yada yada — it doesn’t matter. It’s just that I’ve lifted this huge weight off of my shoulders and now I’m free to think. I couldn’t get to my computer fast enough guys.
To be￼ fair–he totally agreed￼￼ that he would have given me ‘the look’ had I told him about this idea at inception. The one that I knew would shut me down- “another Amanda-kick that will die an early and expensive death”. But I’ve come a really long way these months. And with the proof so far, he’s now as excited as I am after showing him. I’m only weeks away from my first publishing.
I did have to talk him down from the reality ledge for a minute though-this is not a “get rich quick” thing babe – it’s a real business model that, if done right, could generate enough to pay off debt sooner. Steady, passive income. Pretty much the only side hustle I have in the books (ha!) to be a possibility for me to sustain.
It has taken a lot of time, sleepless nights-mornings-and will continue for a good bit. But the dividends will pay off. I am so excited guys! I’m an official publisher.
