Welcome to the
I am happy to say I'm now 70 per cent done writing my book, which is a guide to
help busy people tune into their gut instinct for greater
Although, my gut instinct is telling me I am still missing an
important story to include within this book. As such, I am calling out to you.
If you have ever felt that you listened to your gut instinct and it led you to
success or that you should have listened to it as you ended up in an unfortunate situation, I want to hear from you.
Please send your story
with as many details as possible to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 5,
2012. My team of test readers will review all submissions and the chosen story
will be featured in my book. The person whose story is chosen will also receive
a free coaching session with me as a special thank you for sharing your
experience to help others.
Enjoy the ride!
