Two New Blog Posts From Debra Eckerling

Your Goal Guide author, Debra Eckerling, has created two new blog entries- one about a #GoalChats recap on the topic of persistence and the other on a recap of the most recent Heart Wisdom Author’s Panel.

#GoalChats on Persistence with author Diana Giovinazzo

Persistence

This week on #GoalChatLive, I was joined by historical fiction author Diana Giovinazzo, The Woman in Red, to talk about Persistence. Diana is also the Women’s National Book Association – Los Angeles chapter president and co-host of the Wine, Women, and Words podcast.

Like many of us, Diana had her share of setbacks on her journey to #GoalTopia. During our conversation, Diana explained how she remained persistent in pursuit of an agent … She also revealed the #fail that lead her to take a break from writing, as well as what brought her back to her passion for words.

Sunday’s Twitter conversation was also filled with plenty of thoughts on the value of persistence, as well as advice for remaining persistent – from #GoalChat community.

As a professional writer, communications specialist, and project catalyst with more than 20 years of experience, Eckerling is prepared to help you achieve success.
