E077: Put on a Buddha Smile with Ben Gioia

In this episode, you’ll learn about how to show up as the best version of yourself AND get tips on how you can write a transformational book in just five weeks.

Our guest is Ben Gioia, a three-time, best-selling author who makes it easy to write high-quality, #1 best-selling books. With 35 years of print and digital publishing, Ben is the creator of The Influence With A Heart® Method. 

We have 6 “fun nuggets” about how you can show up as the best version of yourself in this world:

#1: Suffering is optional;  it comes from your mind.

#2: The way out of suffering is to be present.

#3: Soften, relax, and smile.

#4: Give yourself permission to make the best choices – as the best version of yourself.

#5: Smile and share.

#6: Develop a somatic practice so that you can “know” things at a deeper, more integrated level.

We also have 6 “fun nuggets” related to writing your book:

#1: Lay the foundation ( Ben discusses this in the first 3 weeks of the course which actually precedes the five weeks of writing).

#2: Get rid of the noise so you can focus.

#3: Pay attention to what you want, because what you put your attention on grows.

#4: Know your audience and how you can help them.

#5: You don’t have to come up with a completely new idea to write a fantastic book.

#6: Embrace and leverage your own special sauce.
