There are seven “fun nuggets” for you to take away from this interview:
Fun nugget #1: Write that permission slip to yourself that you are good enough to put a book out into the world (or see Elizabeth Gilbert’s Big Magic for a permission slip).
Fun nugget #2: Your mess is your message, and trust in the benevolence of the universe to turn traumatic experiences into transformational experiences (for yourself and others).
Fun nugget #3: Books can save lives.
Fun nugget #4: There are optimal brain states for creativity
(and it is not high-beta!).
Fun nugget #5: When it comes to media appearances, aim high (even if you just declare it in your own living room).
Fun nugget #6: Align your entire team with your mission.
Fun nugget #7: Go for the no, then go with the flow!
Sara tells the story of getting on to Good Morning America. Take-away: Aim high.
