I am a family lawyer and a mum of three small humans – two jobs that add to the busy-ness of life. For years, I had been wanting to write my first book. Without a book, I felt my business was being hampered unnecessarily, and this in turn was impacting on my family life. I had the ideas, I just didn’t know how to bring them together.
In 2016, I was fortunate to discover Dyan Burgess and her Bake a Business Book platform. Based around her book of the same name, I was able to follow a step-by-step programme and achieve publication of my first book.
The positive impact on my business has been significant and immediate and has lead me to pull the ingredients together to continue baking more books in the not-to-distant future.
More importantly, it has given me such clarity and focus across all aspects of my life. I cannot thank Dyan enough. – Megan, Adelaide
