Episode Info:

This week I’m talking to Dr. Holly Sawyer, a psychotherapist, teacher, and author in Philadelphia. She shares the process of writing and releasing her new book It's Time To Talk About Trauma.

As I talked to Dr. Holly, I noticed her commitment to taking steps, doing the important stuff and never giving up. You'll hear the steps she took to clarify the book she needed to write, write, edit, publish and promote it. If you're thinking of writing a book, this conversation will probably make you feel more ready to get started.

You'll also hear behind the scenes stuff about her support system, daily rituals, how she manages her time, and how she stays organized.

  • Helping professional women of color in her therapy practice.
  • Why she wrote her book about trauma and how she choose the workbook format.
  • Creating a "Personal Bill Of Rights" in the book.
  • The myth we all hear about how a book gets written and Dr. Holly's very different truth.
