YOUR BOOK CAN STILL BE WRITTEN IN 2020!

I can imagine many things holding you back. Fear, lack, shortage of finances, mental blockage, anxiety; to name a few. I know how to feels to ‘think’ you don’t have enough, but I’ve come to realise that what you focus on, you magnify.

Think about it, when you are preparing for an exam, you will stay up during late hours to study and take in as much information and knowledge that you can to prepare in order to pass the test. This is the same about life; we need to be prepared for what is already ahead of us, whether we feel ready or not. If you wait for opportunities to find you, you’ll be waiting a very long time. Remember: YOU ARE THE OPPORTUNITY! So act like it and the right people will find you!

I’ve had great opportunities running quarterly workshops on how to write a book for aspiring authors, to building self-confidence and personal development, to helping and encouraging people to find their gifts and turn it into purpose. I remember in 2016 writing my first book It’s Time To Heal currently on my website; I had a vision to help young and mature women deal with internal conflict and to embrace their own journey to freedom and self-discovery.

At some point in your life, you will come to a place and analyse where currently are, whether you need to slow down or speed up. Regardless of what position you are in, life won’t give you a manual. God has given each of us the opportunity and freewill to choose how we desire to live.

Now, as for me, my purpose in life is to help and bring out the best in others through storytelling and book writing. It is such a shame that many of us, if not all have great and abundant talents, but it seems fear screams louder because of our environment, society, family pressure, peer pressure and many other external and internal voices that keep speaking negativity.

Now that we are halfway in 2020, I want to ask you, how do you want to end this year? What will you look back on and say “I am so happy I did this”. So far, I’ve been able to turn my third book From Glory to Glory into an audiobook, I’m nearly in the finishing stages of publishing my fourth book (during Covid-19!), I’ve seen growth in my business Authentic Worth, I’ve had great opportunities meeting many people during lockdown! And now I am still working smart and expecting the remaining six months to be better, but more importantly; do you know what I REALLY look forward to? Helping aspiring authors publish their book by the end of 2020. It is possible!

If you have not yet watched our authors of our generation event on YouTube, I suggest you watch it to take a sneak peak to what Authentic Worth has in store! We are dedicated, determined and passionate to see the best in every author in sharing their story in boldness. Nothing or no-one should hold you back, and this is why Authentic Worth is has created an online masterclass on how to write a book during Covid-19 on Saturday 25th July 2020 at 14.00pm. We want you to know how important your story is, and don’t want you to be put off by fear or any form of self-limiting belief. We have over 3.5k views on Facebook in less than a week through our flyer below which is amazing! Details to register here

HOW TO WRITE A BOOK DURING COVID-19

Join our masterclass exploring the fundamental steps in writing a book during Covid-19 and the basic skills you need in book publishing.

The Authentic Worth masterclass is aimed at aspiring authors from all backgrounds and suitable for anyone looking to write and publish their first book during Covid-19. We want to reassure that YOU have what it takes to write your book – it’s already in you. Life is like a book – some chapters are sad, some are happy, and some are exciting. However, if you never turn the page, you will never know what the next chapter has in store for you.

We will be covering the following from a theoretical, interactive and practical perspective:
– Introduction
– Why I started my writing career
– The process of book-writing
– How to start writing to avoid writers block
– How to write your book during Covid-19
– Why self-publishing is the way forward
– The difference between self-publishing and traditional publishing
– How to turn your book into an online course
– Interactive session – your book matters
– Prize give-a-ways
– Special treats and offers
– Networking and connecting

Remember, your book has what it takes to:

  • Establish authority and trust with readers
  • Impact the world with your story
  • Boost your confidence in storytelling

Every Author has a different writing style; how you write a book may not be the same as another person. As an author of three books, I desire to see those who have published with Authentic Worth and who are due to have a platform in sharing their story. When you’ve written a book, it’s for the purpose of others. I encourage those who have a desire to write a book not to delay. Start with workshops, online courses, and being surrounded with existing authors who are willing to help in your writing journey.

If you’ve been to our previous book launches, events, social sessions and workshops you would know how useful they’ve been to many people whose first time is in writing a book. We want you to have full confidence in your writing skills and be effective in building your book. Your book is your brand which makes you stand out. Highlighted feedback from attendees from our previous events and workshops are below and also on our website:

“I attended Esther’s workshop in March 2020. I must say that I was so glad I attended. The workshop was very useful. It was full of relevant information from finances to having a career in book writing. Having known her for quite a while, I’m happy that Esther’s character reflects her books and other people can see that. Her willingness to help other young people especially ladies grow in publishing is amazing. Esther is very knowledgeable in every topic. Honestly, I’m so grateful that I met an incredible leader like you, Esther. Thank you for all your three books and can’t wait for the next one.” – Meshach, May 2020.

“Authentic Worth has helped me in many ways spiritually and mentally. The company is passionate about helping and motivating others towards where they need to be but also by focusing on yourself and what you need to improve on. Esther hosts very professional workshops which suit all different types of people and backgrounds and her books are amazing too. Thank you for all that you’ve done and continuing to do!” – Olivia, May 2020.

“I met Esther for the first time when I attended her event that took place on the 14th of March 2020. The workshop helped me and installed valuable qualities in myself that I will need when pursuing my writing career. I have gained confidence, insight and knowledge of others experiences that will help me fulfil my experience in a positive way. Esther was a brilliant host, very helpful and it was nice to meet so many different people that share similar interest. It was great networking and learning from others too. I will definitely recommend anyone interested in writing to attend to Esther’s future events that she will hold.” – Charmelle, March 2020.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday 25th July 2020 at 14.00pm prompt via Zoom.

TWO YEARS AGO…

 

Two years ago, on Friday 11th May 2018 was the day my eyes opened. I remember getting ready for work, when the phone rang. I heard my sister crying downstairs and knew something was up. Whilst doing my make-up, I remained calm and rushed downstairs. Then I heard the words: Glory’s gone! I had a very strong feeling that was the case because there’s a type of cry one cries when it’s death-related. I remember heading to the train station and arriving to work. I didn’t even eat breakfast at home because I was trying to understand whole situation. A woman like me going to work the same day my big sister passed away…woah!

Moving on, here I am today. Two years later. I can’t say the journey has been easy or I’ll be lying to you. The journey, the risks, the silent tears have been demeaning, but the strength, joy, and wisdom that these past two years has brought to my heart are key lessons I’ll forever cherish. I decided to leave my full-time job to pursue my career in writing and public speaking. At the time my sister passed, I already had two books. The vision I had was to continue writing more books and run quarterly workshops. This vision became a reality. Without no financial backup or another source of income or job, I took the leap of faith and left what was extremely comfortable with a very good pay, to remember what my purpose is and why I exist. I couldn’t put a price tag on my sister; no amount of money is worth a loved one.

I did not want to keep doing the same routine; I wanted to impact lives. My vision to set up Authentic Worth is to help, support and bring worth back into people through storytelling and book-writing. Since then, I’ve managed to host several book workshops, social events, annual book launches, and most importantly, publishing four Authors books in 2019. I’ve also been invited from several TV presenters and companies to talk about Authentic Worth and my book-writing career which has been humbling, as well as promoting my books in WHSmith.

The vision is growing and many people are inspired to write books. I wrote my third book titled From Glory to Glory – a book dedicated to my late sister. Her name is Glory and I decided to name the book after her as a way for her legacy to live on. I decided to turn the book into an audiobook because of its impact and life-changing transformation. I knew there was so much in me that wanted to give out to people. Was I nervous? Of course. Did I have a plan? Indeed, I did and I still do! However, I didn’t allow my fears to entangle me; rather I trapped them by keeping it moving and not remaining complacent.

I refused to look at what I didn’t have…support or no support…income or no income, none of that stopped me. If it did, I would have quit, but I didn’t. Authentic Worth is still running and will be two years in October 2020. Don’t allow financial burdens, low self-esteem or lack of support to stop you from doing what you’ve been called to do. If the world hasn’t stopped, then why have you?

Authentic Worth is passionate and intentional about bringing worth and investing in aspiring authors to share their story with confidence and turn their pain into purpose. Many people are sitting on their gifts for fear that nobody will notice them, so they feel inclined to stay in the same position. I don’t want anyone to feel trapped; there has to come a point where you know what you want and go for it. I never knew the impact of not having a consistent income would do to me, but it didn’t take me off course. The results may not show forth as I intend for them to be, but step-by-step, I’ll endeavour to stand with those who are willing to share their story with boldness. Your story is your story and no one can take it away from you.

This is my story…I have been on a journey, and it has been a hard one. The decisions I’ve made to be the woman I am today is only by the Grace of God. I can’t do this on my own. I know what is ahead of me is greater than what I originally had in mind. I am not saying you have to copy what I did, you must apply wisdom first! Not everyone is called to do a 9-5 and not everyone is called to be an entrepreneur. They both have their advantages and disadvantages, regardless, it carries a lot of triumphs and a lot of pain, but it will be worth it! There is no position that is better than the other. Your purpose, however, should be more than money or position. It should transform the lives of others around you and bring change in a broken society.

Don’t sit on your gifts; you don’t have to wait until something drastic happens before you make a change. Look around you. There are many people wanting to hear your story and utilise your talents. I am glad and excited for all our 2020 Authors and looking forward to helping you publish your book and get it out to the world.

Remember: If you don’t believe in yourself or your vision, how will others believe in it? Don’t sit on your gifts.

PERAZIM MAGAZINE INTERVIEW

“The pain you go through isn’t for you to keep it in; it is an opportunity to bring hope and restoration to the broken”

I am humbled to partner with Perazim Magazine. I’ve been able to selflessly share my story of how 2018 changed the trajectory of my life, what I’m currently doing and the impact God has given me in the lives of others to inspire and encourage through storytelling and book-writing through my business Authentic Worth.

When there is a vision, God will make the provision. I’m still on my way to greatness and I know that what God has started, He will surely complete it in my life. It doesn’t end here. This is just the beginning and I look forward to every promise being fulfilled – the future is looking bright!

My name is Queen – born for such a time as this (Esther 4:14🌹). I’m not ashamed of my story; it makes me who I am. @perazimmagazine Spring edition Issue XI is out now. To get your copy in print and digital and read many other inspirational stories, grab yours here!

STOP HIDING YOUR GIFTS! WAKE UP WITH ESTHER

After reading a lady’s testimony on Easter weekend, I was inspired, yet challenged to look deep within myself and analyse the gifts that I have within. It prompted me to do this video to remind someone out there that their gifts will make room for them if they use it wisely. 

Stop sitting on your gifts. You don’t know how many people are being encouraged by what you do. Not everyone will be your audience. Find your target market and work with what you have. Stop thinking so low of yourself. Jesus did not create you to stay low. Know who you are and never compromise. Take your time in building a legacy; it’s not about quantity of fans, but the quality of people you invest and inspire. What are you hiding?
