Product Description


Buoyed by the success of her first book, "Get It Done, " Sam Bennett offered various online courses and seminars, and, by far, the most sought after and successful was a 12-week course titled Start Right Where You Are. Based on the course that she taught, and the feedback she received, she proposed a book based on that course, pulling together short, pithy chapters that help readers focus on the things holding them back from their dreams and goals along with success stories, lively and enlightening exercises, guided meditations, simple prayers and affirmations, and basic pep talks to encourage people to take the small steps and make the small changes and course adjustments that will lead to their goal. The small changes include things such as: asking better questions; asking questions to yourself in a kinder, gentler tone; finding a tribe that will support your efforts; clearing clutter from even one small area of your computer or desk or car; framing difficult conversations with a simple device to build allies, not enemies; picking the right project. Sam Bennett has coached all sorts of people working in all sorts of creative endeavors, and in all situations she calls on her talents as a comedian, actor, and insightful person to guide them toward success. It may be that her experience in improvisational comedy will help her break through to a person experiencing career fatigue, as they try on different professions and see where they go. Or, she ll take on the role of recalcitrant teenager to help a parent solve an ongoing behavior problem. The point is that Sam knows how to solve problems creatively and she knows what sorts of challenges creative people struggle with: self-esteem; procrastination; inability to ask for the pay they deserve; no time for their work; clutter; people who demand attention and suck your energy. She writes the way she works, with humor, improv, and always with a gentle, guiding nudge toward discovering what s most important and taking the risk to get it. Her new book is designed to meet those people where they are and get them to start right there toward the better, richer life they crave.
