TAKE PRIDE into 2018
When I gave up my day job in October 2015, to write a book, I didn’t know what I was letting myself in for. I got to Christmas 2016, and I really had given it my heart, and soul, and everything I had. 2017 was going to be all about finding a publisher. And so in March of this year, I fell upon Unbound, submitted my first draft and a few weeks later was taken into the fold. What a rollercoaster it’s been every since. I’ve spent six months of relentless crowdfunding amongst clients and colleagues, friends and family, and I’ve been talking about creating pride in work to hundreds of people in companies and at conferences in the UK, Europe, US and Asia.
I want to say a massive thank you to you, my supporters, for being so quick to put faith in the idea and help me get TAKE PRIDE into production. 2018 is going to be all about working with the Unbound editorial team to get TAKE PRIDE published, and I'll be doing my best to make it a really successful book through professional networking, promotion, PR and more speaker engagements.
I am now looking forward to a few days off with my family to celebrate Christmas. But I am also looking forward to an exciting new year. Let's TAKE PRIDE into 2018 and make it a good one for everyone!
Kind regards, Sheila
