I can barely contain my excitement about the launch of "You Deserve Happiness Workbook: Achieving the Clarity You Need to Have the Relationship You Want." I thought it would feel good to launch something, but I had no idea it would feel this good.
When I printed my worksheets to proof them, I realized just how far I had come. I went from a 1-sentence description of what I wanted to create to an 18-page workbook designed and created by me. The time frame was tight. The learning curve was steep. But, I did it. I sold three copies through pre-order and launched on time!
I signed up for the Small Product Lab challenge not knowing what I would create and I didn't have any experience launching a product. The challenge guides you along with daily emails describing what you should focus on to launch your product in 11 days. To determine what product you should create, you think of a topic that you know something about. This could be a topic that you have a lot of experience with or something that others frequently ask you about. Based on this, I decided to create a dating workbook. Friends have asked me for dating advice and a number of times they suggested I start a blog about it. I usually shied away from the subject on my blog and social media but for this challenge the idea of creating a tool that focuses on that topic resonated with me.
I created this workbook for women who feel like they won't find the right relationship. I want to encourage women to be more intentional about what they want in their romantic relationships. I thought that I wouldn't find the right relationship and became discouraged. Being intentional and knowing exactly the type of person I wanted to date empowered me to seek out that person. I created the workbook I wished I had when I was going through the dating process. Everything mentioned in the workbook, I incorporated into my life. It helped me tremendously and I think it can help others too.
These past 11 days have been an exciting and challenging experience. I would recommend this to anyone that has a desire to create something but thinks they might not be ready yet. You will be surprised by how much you can accomplish in such a short span of time.
