Episode 29: Writing Challenge: How to Create Your Own

When you are a business owner, it’s sometimes difficult to come up with content day after day, email after email, post after post. The same is true when you are a business owner trying to write a book–it can feel like you are starting from ground zero.

That is why I want to talk about creating your own writing challenge. In this episode, I share:

  • why personal writing challenges are so helpful
  • key set up and elements of a writing challenge
  • how to create your own in just 3 simple steps

And, if you are ready to create your challenge while also receiving some loving accountability from myself and my team, then you can head over to to get started as soon as today!
