Did you know most people dream of writing a book yet, shockingly, very few actually bring that dream to life? 

It’s a surprising reality that begs the question: what's holding back those who don’t take the leap?

The truth is, they're trapped in a web of excuses:

1. Limited Time - "I don't have the bandwidth to write.

2. Overwhelmed - "I don’t know where to start."

3. Uncertainty - "Once I do start, I don’t have a clue on what’s next."

4. Competition - "There are already so many books on my topic!"

5. Self-doubt - "I’m not an expert, so no one will want to read what I write."

If you feel a burning desire to share your story with the world and can relate to these excuses, it's time to break free from the myths that have kept you from unleashing your true potential. YOU CAN DO THIS!

I can say this with confidence because I've been exactly where you are. I also dreamed about writing a book since the early 2000s, but I allowed these very myths to hold me back for over a decade.

The timing never seemed right. Whether I was engrossed in my studies, pursuing not one but four degrees, or working at esteemed legal and public accounting companies like Bowmans, Arthur Andersen, EY, Deloitte, and investment bank, Deutsche Bank, I always found a reason to delay my writing aspirations. I definitely struggled to convince myself it was the perfect time when I had the incredible opportunity to work at Amazon’s headquarters in Seattle.

But one day, during my nearly eight-year tenure there, something inside me clicked. I realized the perfect time would never come unless I made it happen. I took a leap of faith and dove headfirst into the process, fully aware that the only way to uncover the path ahead was to start walking it.

I also discovered that despite the countless books already written on my chosen topic, I had a unique story to tell simply because I am an individual with my own experiences and perspectives. I realized that my voice mattered, and no matter how many books existed on a subject, there was always room for my unique perspective to be heard.

As time constraints made it challenging for me to write my own story, I sought help in bringing my story to life. It wasn’t easy, given the demands of my super hectic work and personal life, but I persevered. Finally, in 2019, I achieved my dream and officially became an author!

Following that milestone, I started writing articles on topics that sparked my interest. One of these articles, which proposed reforms to the criminal justice system for greater equity in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death, gained visibility online when it was shared by a former colleague and friend. It was ultimately featured on Amazon's global websites, shared by tax leadership with all my colleagues, and featured in the Financial Mail, leading to increased exposure and sales of my first book. And guess what? I’m not even a criminal law expert – I said this right in the article! But this goes to show that passion and a fresh perspective can make a real impact, no matter your formal expertise.

In 2022, I published my second book, a novel that delves into the captivating world of the gaming tech industry (Rookie (

If I could overcome these excuses and turn my aspirations into reality, so can you. It’s time to believe in yourself and take that leap of faith.

Imagine the sheer joy of holding your own published book in your hands, sharing your wisdom and experiences with the world, and becoming a respected author in your field. Take it from me, the feeling is truly indescribable!

So, what’s stopping you from reaching that goal? Are you afraid of the challenges that lie ahead? Do you feel lost and unsure of the necessary steps to take? Are you doubting your qualifications and expertise?

No matter what it is, it’s time to cast aside those excuses and embrace your dreams. It’s time to write your own story, in your own unique way. The world is waiting to hear what you have to say. It's time to transform your aspirations into reality and join the ranks of successful authors who dared to believe in their dreams.
