Cher was first inspired to write a book when she noticed gaps in various fields she had worked in. This led her to want to create something that offered foundational skills in social and emotional intelligence. It's important to recognize where there may be a need for your expertise or unique perspective.
Having a structured schedule, along with setting a deadline for a book signing event, provided Cher with the motivation and accountability needed to complete her book. Setting specific goals and deadlines can be a powerful way to make progress on a creative project.
Cher acknowledges that her book isn't perfect and even encourages readers to point out typos. This serves as a reminder that it's okay for creative works to have imperfections, and the pursuit of perfection should not be a barrier to sharing valuable content. Self-publishing allows authors to make tweaks and refine their original works without stress.
