In this episode, you’ll learn how contributing to an anthology, coordinating an anthology, writing children’s workbooks, Brainspotting, Imago Therapy, and more, all come together to create a story of helping others in the community.
Our guest is Brooke Randolph, founder, and director of Counseling at The Green House and a bestselling author of several books. She is a certified Imago Relationship Therapist and a certified Brainspotting therapist & Consultant.
The four “fun nuggets” from this interview are:
#1: Understand that there might be a difference in how others view your primary legacy and how you view your own (and that’s okay!).
#2: Recognize that organizing an anthology can be potentially more work than writing one’s own book! (Click here for more information about the anthology that I just contributed to and discussed during this interview).
#3: Collect stories over time to create your own “story bank” (a creative gold mine!).
#4: Get to know your “faces of resistance” (to having a bigger voice and reaching more people on a larger platform) so that you can move beyond these obstacles.
