“You were born with wings, why prefer to crawl through life?”
The Single Series combines what I know from my research about emotions and choice, with my life experience as a single mother with a broken heart. Single & Rich is about money and Single & Fearless is about courage. The aim isn’t to make money or conquer fear. The aim is to find our dreams and make them come true, right now, with our children and family and friends. Dreams are not for tomorrow, they are for today.
I wrote the series when I took six months off work. I wanted to reconnect with a core that had become silent. To find my voice. What was important? Career? Success? Money? Keeping up appearances? Say I died tomorrow, looking back, had I lived my life the way I really wanted?
I packed my car and Stella, and we hit the road for three months. We lived a month in the mountains in northern Norway, alone and contemplating that awesome sea. We hiked into valleys where Stella and I were the only beings and there was no phone coverage. After Norway we traveled to Russia, Latvia, Poland, Ukraine, Romania, and Montenegro. We visited Count Dracula’s fortress, but met no vampires. Probably because it was in the day and they slept.
Single & Rich: How You Can be a Divorced Mom and Live in Abundance
The Single Series, Book 1
The first Singles book is about money, because although money isn’t everything, you can’t get far without it. A divorce was my chance to get the life I really wanted. A life of happiness and abundance where I found my core values and my dreams and learnt how I could afford what I wanted. Vacations overseas, a dog, to take my children to the cinema, and do tons of stuff.
This required a new mindset. Single & Rich will teach you how to make what you have – your salary, your belongings, and, most important of all, your thinking – into a mindset where you:
- become a “satisficer” instead of a “maximizer”
- put together a Money Team and learn how money works
- balance your budget
- play with money as an open game
- find your core values
- find your dreams and make them come true
The book combines research in neuroscience about how we make choices with research in play and a frame of mindfulness. It teaches you to play with money. In your game, you design the game, you decide the rules, and you win. You will uncover your core values and your dreams, and you will stop wasting time and money on things you don’t want.
Single & Fearless: How to Play with Fear and Write Your Own Life Script
The Single Series, Book 2
Have you been hit by a divorce? Then use it to learn to face fear and create the life you want. You are not a victim. You are the sum of your choices and today is the first day of a new life.
Single & Fearless will show you to
- find your core values and dreams
- stop procrastinating, lying, or cheating
- endure pain
- face your fear
- play life as an open game
- have fun and live life according to your values
My divorce was a tsunami that took everything. All I could do was hold on to my children. I decided that for the rest of my life, I would face fear and be aware of what choices I made. I decided to be true to my values, go after my dreams, be all I could for my children. When my lover asked if I regretted meeting him, I said no. Leaving him broke my heart but it also opened the door to freedom.
It is said fear is our strongest emotion. Once a road of fear is laid in the mind, its tracks cannot be removed. But you can make new tracks that will take you into a life of your choice. This book will show you how.
It’s time to be single and fearless.
