2020 marks ten years as a coach, and ten years since I first had the idea of writing a book one day. To see it come to fruition is a special moment, and one I whole-heartedly know wouldn’t have been possible without the incredible support team I have around me. This book, Transform Your Body Transform Your Life, is not only my creation.
In this two-part series, I want to dive into why and how I wrote this book, which I’ve also recorded as a combined podcast you can listen to here:
My Personal Why
“All I can think about right now is writing this book.”
So I set my challenge for the final quarter to write the first draft of the book. I was well into my goal of #12in12 countries to visit in 2019, and thought it was a good idea to tie writing the book with another trip. I had my sights set on some obscure location in Vietnam to lock myself away and write. But then the shoot happened, I’d travelled around the US for 2 weeks, and the appeal of travelling beyond 10 trips in the years fizzled out. I just wanted to write.

Why The Book Is Part Of Our Mission
Finding The Intersection
In part two, I’m going to discuss the journey of writing Transform Your Body Transform Your Life. What a journey it’s been!
