The Power of Shoes virtual retreat, September 16, 2021

I just hosted and spoke at The Power of Shoes speakers/writers virtual retreat on September 16-17, 2021. It was amazing and the speakers were anointed by God!

I’ve held these speakers/writers retreats in person twice before here in Butler, Missouri, where I live, and taught part of it at my friend Missy Hoffman’s live event in Hutchinson, Kansas. My business coach Diane Cunningham Ellis encouraged me to “pivot” when Covid-19 hit the USA and so many speaking venues were closed; she said to bring my speaking online.

So that is what I did. This is the first virtual retreat that I’ve done and it was fun! I hope to do more in the future. What an honor and a blessing that these gifted speakers said yes to God and to me.

One attendee said, “Thank you so much, Beth. This was a wonderful event!”

Another said, “Great retreat, Beth!”

If you wanted to attend this virtual retreat but weren’t able to sign up yet, I’m now offering the recording replay videos and the bonuses with this event at half off the event price — just $50!

3 tips for book/eBook covers to draw more readers. And revealing my new fiction book’s cover!

On today’s Facebook Live video, I accidentally cut it off at the end. So I re-recorded the video, 3 Tips for book/eBook covers to draw more readers. And I revealed the cover of my new fiction book and its title that I’m working on right now!

You can watch the video which I recorded on Zoom and uploaded to YouTube here at the link below:

How the idea for the book came about

One day in my business coach Diane Cunningham Ellis’ Inspired Business Academy (IBA) training class, she mentioned the video game Tetris. Believe it or not, I’d never heard of it before or played it. It is a video game created by Russian software engineer Alexey Pajitnov in 1984 for the Electronika 60 computer.

When Diane explained its concept, I immediately thought, “That is a new book idea!”

Conquer the 3 P’s mini-training (procrastination, perfectionism, and other pitfalls)

I’m not a procrastinator, but I have family members who are. Drives me crazy! 

However, I do struggle with perfectionism. I call perfectionism “procrastination dressed up in high heels.” Both are usually rooted in fear. Fear of being “good enough” or “perfect enough.” No one is perfect but Jesus!

There’s another “P” word. Pitfalls. What are these? Things like scrolling on social media too much, busyness, laziness, cleaning the house, organizing, errands to run, or anything that serves as a distraction to stop you from doing what God has called and anointed you to do and to be.

There’s nothing wrong or sinful about these things. But they can sabotage your success and mine.
