How The Excuse Of Not Feeling Like It Can Distract You From Living The Life You Want
by Cassandra Deanna Freeman
Can you share a bit about your back story with us.
I started writing at an early age. I always love reading, English, languages, and writing. As a child I most wrote songs, studied English and other languages. In middle school I even wrote my first skit.
How and when did you know that you wanted to write a book?
I knew I wanted to write a book after I had my 4th child. I was really driven and I had a big vision despite having 4 kids under the ages of 5 years old. So I started working on my vision. When I started succeeding in business and graduated valedictorian of both my master degree programs, women started wanting to know how I did it. That is when I got the inspiration to write my first book Study Skills for Parents: How to Study with Kids Around. After that, whenever I knew that a topic really resonated with my audience I wrote a book about it.
Tell us about your book.
My latest book is called The Little White Lie: How the Phrase I don’t Feel Like it Can Keep You From Living the Life You Crave. It is my 4th book. It is about gaining back the discipline, drive, and desire to take action on the things you want in life. So many times people can psyche themselves out of taking action on something they really want to achieve because in the moment they don’t feel like it. The key here is that feelings come and go. Act based on your vision not your feelings.
What were the hardest things you faced whilst you were writing it?
The hard things I faced while writing adding others to the process. The writing wasn’t hard it was working with the editor to keep the intended meaning of what I was writing.
What were the best things you experienced during the process?
The best thing I experienced during this process was receiving an endorsement quote from Brian Tracy. I was blown away! Still in belief.
What’s next for you?
What’s next for me are two new books this year.
