Follow Your Vision, and Focus!

When you go into business for yourself, you are now responsible for holding yourself accountable. What this means is that you must now organize your goals, structure your work days, and ensure everything gets done efficiently and on time. A lot of people find it difficult to discipline themselves. After all, if you’re working out of your home, there’s no one to get you moving except yourself.

This is why it is so important to know your mission. Why are you doing what you’re doing? Follow your vision, the dream that got you started. Working to make money is important. But doing it for only that reason will surely lead you to an inevitable burnout. Stay passionate about what you do, constantly reassess your goals and motivation, and always make sure your business days are organized so that you’re making enough time to take care of yourself, too.

Working constantly and not taking a break to eat or even breathe is not how you want to operate. That being said, I would like to share one of my methods for keeping myself focused.

My vision book.

My vision book.

The Vision Book

My vision book is similar to a vision board; I put the intent behind my business into this book, fill it with journal entries, goals, successes, and even failures. I used a regular sketchbook. I don’t focus on failures. Instead, I focus on what I have learned from my mistakes and how I can improve things in the future.

We aren’t perfect, so we’re going to make mistakes. But my vision book helps me assess these mistakes and make plans on how to avoid making the same mistakes in the future. My vision book keeps me organized, and I also like to record inspirational things, such as notes from happy clients.

The most important thing my vision book does is:

It reminds me of why I am doing what I am doing.


If you find yourself panicking, and ready to give up, journaling about it, thinking positively, and focusing on your goals in a vision book can help you boost your morale.

Why do you write? Why are you in business for yourself? What’s important to you?

These are essential questions to ask yourself, and certainly, the power of mulling over it in a similarly creative fashion can help you answer those questions.

Coming Soon: Men of Mayhem

I am proud to have worked with Limitless Publishing as editor of this anthology. Check it out on Amazon.

men of mayhem

Sometimes the line between good and bad simply depends which side you’re on…

Good guys can have unsavory secrets, while so-called criminals can live by a code of ethics rivaling that of any law enforcement agency. Bending the law for money, power, or revenge is one thing, but what if you’re bending it for your family—for love?

Who would choose to become involved with a man who walks on the dark side…

Some men will go to any lengths, legal or not, and make no apologies to protect their way of life and all they hold dear. But you don’t always choose who you love, and sometimes you just have to decide if you’re bold enough to risk it all and go along for the ride.

Thirteen masterful authors come together to present Men of Mayhem.

Compelling stories of loyalty and passion, love and lust, in which the moral and ethical lines are blurred, and call into question the notions of right and wrong.

What could be more exciting than taking a leap of faith…and landing in the arms of the last man you’d expect—but the only one who truly makes you feel alive?

What if your road to happiness leads to…

Men of Mayhem

New Release: Author Identity

Author Identity: Build Your Brand. Sell More Books. Change The World. By Angie Mroczka. Now available on Amazon.


Are you a published author who dreams of escaping your ‘day job,’ but feel discouraged by royalty payments that won’t even cover a cup of coffee?

How do you get readers to buy your books, day after day, after the excitement of the launch has waned?

And how do you attract new readers who aren’t in your current circle of influence?

This concise and action-oriented guide was created as a roadmap to help authors tackle the daunting process of zeroing in on their Ideal Readers, as well as directing and growing their brands.

As an author, the concept of being seen is both delightful and terrifying. There is comfort in anonymity, slipping into the background and letting the words on the page speak for us.

Branding yourself as an author requires you to step out from behind your book to fully engage your audience and develop relationships. This can be a daunting proposition, especially if you are an introvert.

Through featured brands (including Michael Hyatt, Jeff Goins, Anne Rice, and more) and her own experience coaching writers to become better marketers, Mroczka will show you how branding allows you to set yourself apart from the crowd, positioning yourself as an authority and trendsetter.

This book equips you to begin building your author brand through:

  • Four shocking truths behind commonly held branding myths
  • The simple, but often-overlooked equation to selling books
  • Practical tips for defining your brand through your books, website, marketing, and on social media
  • Actionable advice at the end of each chapter, along with a workbook and bonus checklist to walk you step-by-step through the entire process

Follow the advice in this book and not only will you become three times clearer on the needs of your audience, but you will also begin to attract the kind of readers who will stick with you through your writing career.

What’s stopping you from having a tribe of loyal readers, eager to consume your next book?

Quit trying to herd cats and stop being a wallflower! Finally be seen by your ideal audience.

From the back cover:

Adventures of John Wooten World’s Strongest Man, Master of Masters is a collection of ten short stories including my autobiography, which introduces the reader to my career and adventures. The collection begins with young John’s introduction to Kung Fu; each story is a different adventure.

In my stories, the World’s Strongest Man is presented as a superhero figure who does whatever he can to help all of humankind, to prevent evil and promote good works.

I would like to share my experiences and life lessons with children, teens, and adults everywhere, to show them that they can accomplish anything with perseverance and fortitude. I hope to entertain as well as show that the possibilities are endless.

As the Worlds Strongest Man, I am the holder of 143 strength records. See my feats of strength on YouTube, under Strongman John Wooten.
