Do you feel like you have too much to do?
- What do you want to achieve?
What is your definition of success?
What do you want to be known as in the next 10 years?
What do you need to give up to make that happen? Sometimes you need to give up ‘good’ in exchange for ‘better.'
So I am giving up speaking as Joanna Penn. I will serve the author community through my podcast, blog, YouTube channel and through online courses. I’ll focus on fiction for the next 18 months. I have 10 non-fiction books and that’s enough of those for now.
I’m going to stop screenwriting, as that is another whole career that is distracting me. I’m also giving up Penny Appleton, the sweet romances that I have been co-writing with my Mum, and we'll be doing a podcast interview soon about that.
