Have you ever wanted to write a book and get it published….but maybe fear was holding you back????
I know that fear – I have lived it (even as recently as THIS YEAR!)
That is EVEN after partnering with today’s guest and helping create a best selling/award winning international book together!

I feel like I missed you guys for a month, but it’s only been two weeks since my last podcast. I did take some time off for Thanksgiving and just kind of going in a hibernation mode. However, we’re back and we have an amazing interview today with Linda Sunshine West, and we have some really powerful, powerful, inspirational messages this month.

So, Linda, you’ve been here a few times. I know I’ve had you at least twice. You were part of my launch. You’ve been a part of my community. Everyone who knows you loves you. So I’m so excited to have you back because 2021 was kind of a big year for you.
And I’m excited that now I was a part of this that you launched this award winning international best selling The Fearless Entrepreneurs. And you’re the founder and CEO of Women Action Takers Publishing. So that’s new since we last talked. So you got to update us for those who don’t know you very well, maybe share a little bit about your background and just even what you’re up to these days.
Hi, Lois. Thanks for having me. I’m always blessed to be around you and your presence. I met Lois at a networking event, probably about two and a half years ago or so in person before COVID and just love your personality and love what you’re all about. The confidence that you exude rubs off on others. So if you get a chance to hang out with Lois, please do so because that will be a great time for you, for sure. And for Lois, too, of course. But what am I all about?
It’s been an interesting year. Like you said, 2021 has really been a great growth year for me. I started my entrepreneurial journey back in the end of 2014, like December 2014, and I’ve spent the last seven years just kind of like, flailing around and like, what am I going to do? How am I going to make any money? And it really took me a while to Hone in on that. And I don’t want to say it took a long time because for somebody else, it could be 1015 years.
So my seven years might be nothing compared to theirs. But it was definitely a journey of learning who I am, what I’m all about and how I serve others and the action takers publishing officially launched only two months ago, and I’ve been doing the publishing thing for about three and a half years now and love it, but never thought of it as a business because I had imposter syndrome, right? Like, well, there’s all these other companies out there, like, hey House and all these big names out there, and I could never compete with them and then realize that that’s my imposter syndrome getting in the way and that I need to just step back and say, you know what?
I don’t have as big as them, at least not to start. I just got to start to start.
I say this many times, I think, you know, that one of my favorite quotes from Zig Ziggler is, you don’t have to be great to start. However, you do have to start to become great. And you’ve done so much to be where you are in the two and a half years that I’ve known you. I’m just so proud of you and so honored to be a part of your universe. And what was it like to because you’ve had multiple best sellers, right?
The first one was I was in somebody else’s book, and that was a New York Times bestselling book. And it’s kind of funny, because when I joined that book, it’s called Footsteps of the Fearless. And the reason it’s called Footsteps of the Fearless is because you’re taking people through a journey of fear and stepping through it. And at that time, I was facing a fear every single day, which I wrote a book called The Year of Fears. We’re going to give away a free copy of that today.
But The Year of Fears was about me breaking through a fear every single day for a year in 2015. Well, one of those fears that I had that was tremendous was putting my words on paper. And so when this opportunity came for me to be part of a collaboration book, I said, yes, I’m in. I raised my hand, and I’m like, I’m in. And when we got that book published, I was scared to share it. So here I was talking about this in The Fearless, but I was scared to share because the first time my words were in a book, not just on Facebook, not just on LinkedIn, but in an actual book.
And it was really awesome, though. Great experience.
I think that’s so cool, because I think a lot of us have this creative something inside of us, and we get so busy going through the motions. I know my husband a great example. He just started painting this year, and he’s an engineer, used to working numbers and spreadsheets and all other things. And he finally just started painting. And, oh, my gosh, six months later, he’s just, like, Channeling Michelangelo. He’s doing it every day. He’s a completely different person. And I was so inspired by that I’m actually going to start writing again.
And maybe you can talk about how you hear this. They say Journal every day because it’s cathartic. It’s healing. But there’s a lot of people out there, Linda, that are scared to share their story. They’re scared to start because of what it might do to change them. However, what was your experience? How did it change you going through that process?
First, I wanted to address your husband going through this change. And what’s interesting is I believe that sometimes at a young young age, we’re stuck in a box. Right. So he was stuck in the engineering box, in the spreadsheet box. Right. And he didn’t explore outside of that box because that was the box he was told he belonged in. I’m just making this up because I don’t know the story. But oftentimes we’re put in that box. I was a legal Secretary for 20 years, and I was stuck in that box of perfection and all of these different things and never did I color outside of the lines.
I was not a color outside of the line kind of person. At age 51, I ended up hiring a life coach, and she helped me to see that I have creativity inside of me because I always said my whole life, Lois, I said, I am not creative. I am not creative. And people who look at me now they’re like, yes, you are. But I never explored it because that wasn’t who I was. That wasn’t who I was supposed to be. And that was what I believe.
And so it’s interesting. Once I started this journey of writing stories, writing my own story, putting it on paper and putting it out there. When I wrote The Year of Fears, which was in 2016, and I published that book out there, I didn’t publicize it much because, again, it was my story and who wants to read my story? And this woman, I was attending an event. There are about 300 people there, and this woman comes running across from the other side of the room, yelling out my name Linda.
She’s like, I got your book. I read the first 14 pages, and I already broke through five fears. It was in that moment that I realized the power of our story that I didn’t think would have any value wouldn’t impact anybody who would read my story did have an impact. I’ve only impacted that one person’s life. Definitely the ripple effect from her to her children. And that will help other people. And so our stories have a lot of power, and it’s time for us to start sharing them and putting them on paper and pushing it out there.
Yeah, we’ll get to the publishing company a second because I want to talk about that and all the exciting stuff you have coming up. But the pandemic shocked me, just broke me. I was so devastated and having to start all over. And it was where do you begin? I just began at the beginning. I shared my story. I was authentic with people with my podcast. And sometimes people might think, Well, you’re over sharing. But what I discovered was the more I shared, the more people connected to me because of my vulnerability, because of me being authentic.
And I think a book in your experience, what you talked about, I really want to edify this and make sure people understand you took a day every day. You took a fear every day, and you did something that scared you again. Eleanor Roosevelt, quote, do one thing every day that scares you, and it transformed you. At 51, some people might say midlife crisis, my life is over. I’ve heard it, but you went for it and you took action. Women action takers publishing. So many people, they see fear, they see change, and it’s too scary.
So that’s why they also stay in that box. Would you agree?
Definitely. Fear is debilitating, and it will stop us from living our lives. And that was one thing. By facing a fear every single day, breaking through it, I got accustomed to fear and breaking through it. And what’s cool is that? Now I do things because I’m scared because I realized after a whole year of doing it every single day, the results I got on the other side of fear were always something good, whether it was a failure or not. I learned from it. I grew from it, and I became a stronger person from it.
So if that’s the result, I’m going to get every time I break through fear, why am I not breaking through fears? So I break through fears because I’m scared. And there was something you mentioned about sharing your story oversharing. People have their own opinions about what over sharing is. But if our over sharing can help somebody to change their lives, then if we’re willing to do it, I really think we have to do it. It’s our job and duty to do it. But I came up with the saying again in 2015 is when I faced that fear every single day, a different fear every day.
And I came up with this saying because I realized that it was in my vulnerability, me sharing myself with the world from these very vulnerable States. It was through my vulnerabilities, where I made my greatest connections with people like you mentioned. And I came up with a saying, and that is to be brave and share your weaknesses in your weaknesses. Others see your strengths because it’s through your vulnerable moments that can seem or feel weak. Yet other people on the other side, when they see you share those weak times in your life, they’re like, Whoa, you’re so brave to share that.
So really, it’s brave to be vulnerable. And it’s really awesome and life changing for others as well as yourself, because you will grow through that. You will grow. And I believe that when we share our stories, especially from a deep place, that that’s when we make our greatest healing.
Yes, because we’re born to be connected and we’re born to have community. And that’s what brings us together is understanding that we’re not alone. We’re not alone in this sometimes seemingly big, bad world. Hey, I want to give a shout out to Elizabeth. She’s in Southern California desert. She’s my jewelry, amazing jewelry maker. I just want to give a shout out. And she actually said, Where is it? Oh, she’s currently writing a book. So I want to share that she’s writing a book. And Linda, I don’t think I told you this this month.
I’m going to take a bunch of time off so that I can create space and time to start writing my next book. Awesome. So tell us, how does someone go about maybe if you have any quick tips, because we only have so much time about starting to write a book, and then how do they get to that publishing point? So take it away.
Okay, well, first about writing the book, what do you want to write about? And why is really to think about why? What do you want to get out of it? Louis and I are really big on setting an intention right before you go into any project, like, set an intention, what you want to get out of it. And if it’s that you want to sell it and make a lot of money, then you got to find somebody who’s going to be able to help you to get to that point.
And I know Lois helps people set up systems and these things that can help you to get to that point. But you got to know what you want out of it. If you’re doing it just because you want to share your story. Awesome. Go do it. Awesome. Go do it right. If you’re doing it for a business reason again, know what it is that you want out of that. There’s so many different things I couldn’t even possibly cover any of them right now because there’s so many different reasons why people write a book.
But I will share this that a book is the absolute best business card you could ever have. Why? Because if you think about, first of all, exchanging business cards today, we don’t really get out much in person. But even if you do and you get out in person, you exchange business cards. Or let’s say you put somebody into your contacts in your phone. That’s it. You forget about them because, well, the business cards. I don’t know about you, but I had a bag of, like, I counted them.
They were, like 1500 business cards in my bag, not even in my contact database, not even there. But a book. When somebody has your book, they will read it. First of all. So they’re tactileing contacting you because they’re reading through your book. And then either they’ll put it on their shelf or they will put it on a desk. Maybe they’ll put it on a desk or a bench or whatever. I don’t know. I don’t know why I said bench, or they may give it to somebody else.
So now your book is traveling around. It’s not being thrown in a garbage can. It’s not being put in a little bag, but it’s out there, and your story will change people’s lives. It really will as long as you share it out there with the world. So getting to the publishing part, you got to write your story again, know why you’re doing it? What process are you going to go through? I’m in the process right now of writing a book called how to Write and Publish Your Book In 28 Days or less, and super excited to get that one done.
Now I have to block out my 28 days. So that’s the first thing like Lois is doing. She’s blocking out time not to block out time. I haven’t even blocked out my 28 days yet to write my 28 day book. I got to do that. I have the idea in my head, right? But to get it onto paper means I need to structure my days in a way that I can actually write. Otherwise it’s never going to get written. So really creating that process. And then when you’re ready to get to the publishing part, you got to think about, I need to put cover designed.
Where am I going to get it designed? Is it going to look good? You want to make sure you use good quality people when they see it, they’re like, Whoa, I got to look further. I got to look further and then getting the formatting of the book done and making sure you get the right people to help you format that book. You can go on Fiverr and find people, but you never know. You might be stabbing in the dark and finding the wrong people. There’s formatting formats that must be followed.
And I would recommend going to I’ll give you a website. Ingramspark it’s I-N-G-R-A-M-S. Com and go to IngramSpark. Check it out. It talks about all of this stuff and you can find out how to do it there. Instead of publishing on Amazon. Com, I recommend going through Ingram Spark to publish if you’re going to self publish because it will go out to 40,000 retailers, whereas Amazon it goes out to Amazon. If you do the Ingram Spark, it goes to Amazon and 40,000 retailers and it’s only $45.
It’s really well worth it. You need to make sure you get that ISBN number on your book so that you can sell it and then having the barcode on the back of the book so you can sell it. So there’s a lot of little things that you need to make sure that you follow. But we’re here to help people. If they want to publish their book, we will publish solo books. We also do collaboration books like the book Lois mentioned earlier, the Fearless Entrepreneurs. That is a collaboration book with 28 authors in it.
So we do collaboration books. And if you want to put together your own collaboration book, we will do that work for you as well. So that’s how we help other people.
I love it. And of course, guys, if you stay till the end, Linda has a free gift for you, and then you’ll also know how to contact her. Since we’re just over halfway. I want to remind you guys, this is the time to ask our guest questions. This is why I do this show live. Not many podcasts are live because they just want to have one way communication. I’m kind of weird. I like a two way conversation and not just with my guests, but also with you, my tribe, my community here in healthy and wealthy and wise.
So comment below with your questions and hit the share button. There’s a lot of people who are starting to reflect on 2021 and thinking, okay, what do I want to do, be, do or have different in 2022? That’s how Linda full disclosure. I’ve started slowing down. I’ve been writing my sales and marketing plan for 2022 and thinking of my new lead generation tools. Right. And you already said a book is the best business card. Right. And so now I’m finally, after doing a podcast email list, all of the things I’m ready.
I’m ready to do this thing called Create a Book and put it out there to the world. So if people are thinking, how long will it take you? Well, you already answered that question, right? 28 days. When you say 28 days, how much time are you allotting per day to write this book?
It depends on what your book is and what your purpose is. So when I wrote The Year of Fears, I wrote it in seven days using a system that I created. I heard about it, but I modified it for me. So that system is something that helped me to write that book in seven days. And then I published it seven days later. I actually wrote and published in 14 days, and I thought I’ll give people double that’s really what I’m doing. And so those seven days, my writing time, that book is a little less than 100 pages.
That’s an important piece. So if you think you break down how many pages you want your book to have, I will share that in order for you to have the spine on your book with some words on it, you have to have 100 pages or more. So that’s an important piece, right. For example, if you know you want to have that spine, you need to have 100 pages. You say 100 pages divided by seven days equals this many pages a day. And then how long does it take me to write that many pages a day?
You just have to do the math to figure out how much time you need to spend on that. And then after I wrote it, then I hired a proofreader editor to go through it. It took them two days to edit my book, get that back to me. And then again, I published it by seven days. Like I had to get the cover designed and stuff. So really, it’s just knowing the system and I’ll share that with your viewers or your listeners lowest, if you’d like, I think we have time.
We have time for that.
Yeah. If you want. I don’t see any questions yet again. Guys, this is your best time to ask Linda questions because we’re wrapping up here in ten minutes. So yeah. Feel free. Take notes, guys.
Okay. So let’s say your topic is healthy, wealthy and Wise, because that’s where we are today. Right. So we’ve got three categories. You can maybe write a book called I’ll just use that as an example. A book called Healthy and Wealthy and Wise. And then that would have, like, three sections. Right. A healthy section, the wealthy section, the wise section. Then you can break each of those sections down or let’s call them parts the three different parts to this book. Now you break those three different parts down into chapters based on that.
So let’s say you’re like, okay, in the healthy area, I want to have three chapters in the wealthy, three chapters in the wise, three chapters. Now you’ve got nine chapters. What does this mean? 100 pages divided by nine chapters. I need to have eleven pages per chapter. So again, we’re doing some math here. Right. So now we say I’m going to have three chapters. And in each of those three chapters, I’m going to have three sub chapters as an example. So now each part healthy has nine.
Right? Wealthy nine and Wise nine. So each of them has nine. Now you’ve titled all of these sub chapters. So what I do is here’s the thing that’s challenging for people when they’re writing. Coming up with the inspiration to start writing now that you’ve titled your sub chapters, your subtitles you can go through in any given day. Like, let’s say tomorrow, you’re like, man, I really feel like talking about wisdom because I met somebody really amazing today, and they really inspired me to write about wisdom.
So go under your wisdom. Part of nine sub chapters. Pick one of those sub chapters and just write. And if you think about that, you got nine sub chapters. That means like a page and a half or sub chapter in order to get the book done. So it’s just a mathematical way to get started. And what I did is I use Google Docs and I use the Google dictate. So I actually dictated my book and it translated right there on the page. So it was using my voice in order to become the book instead of me.
I don’t know about you, but when I type, I type like a legal Secretary. I was a legal Secretary for 20 years, but I don’t talk like a legal Secretary. So I just dictated my book. And there it was.
Wow. Because I didn’t even think about that. I don’t even know what it means by typing like a legal Secretary. Can you explain what does that mean?
Oh, you make. I love that. Thank you for clarifying that, because I thought maybe it just means she’s really slow. I don’t know, because I type really fast, but that’s awesome. I love that. I love what you did. It’s exactly what I do. Even with my sales and marketing plans and my podcast, I reverse engineered what was my end goal, and then you break it down. And thanks, Linda. You just gave me an idea for a second book with what you just shared. So I love you for that.
So I’ll have to talk to you about that one, too. So we have some questions coming in now. Do you want to continue sharing your system, though? Did I interrupt you?
That is the system for getting your book down on paper.
Okay. I love the dictation idea. I think that’s a great skill. Youtube does it for you, too. And I’ve used different things and tools to even transcribe my podcast. So you guys should be able to find that my friend Ismail Macho from Puerto Rico, we can’t see his face on here, unfortunately, because of the whole StreamYard thing. But he says he has an old magazine and newspaper that is from the 80s. He would like to republish. I don’t know exactly what that means, but can you maybe talk about magazine and newspaper publishing?
Is that in your wheelhouse?
I don’t do magazine and newspaper publishing, just books, but he can turn those into a book. So depending on if they’re the same theme. So what I would do is I would recommend, like, going through the newspaper articles and the magazine articles and figuring out what kind of theme are these running through? And maybe not all of them would fit would be republishable. But then go and see if there’s a way that you can thread them together to create a book out of it. So that way you have a book to sell.
That’s what I would recommend.
Awesome. Well, I will say, I know even starting out with a compilation project with you is very affordable. So if even they wanted to do that, that’s something to keep in the back of your mind. I do want to talk about budget, but let’s go to the questions first. So Elizabeth asked, does this apply to graphic books with Oracle cards? Is that an available option? Her book is an oracular style with a set format per chapter and will feature her artwork with an Oracle deck.
That’s an interesting question, because I don’t really know. Like when you’re referring to with Oracle cards, I don’t really understand the question fully.
So I have Oracle cards right here. So just as an example, I’m going to assume thanks, Elizabeth. So here’s an Oracle card deck. So that goes with a book. So each card and Elizabeth, please let me know if I’m way off base. So I’m just intuiting this. Okay. So each card has a reading or a meeting. And inside of the book, you’ve got to read it in order to connect the dots with why did you pull this card? This is what the sign is for you today.
Okay. Let’s see. So when you’re asking the question is, does this also apply to graphic books with Oracle cards? I’m not sure if you mean, does the writing of the book apply to that or exactly what the question is.
Yeah. Elizabeth, maybe if you can clarify, I hope you’re still here. Okay. She says that what I just showed you. Linda, the Oracle card deck comes with a mini book. It’s like a little booklet, right. And they usually are over 100 pages. By the way, they’re just more like handheld size. But she says her book is more complex. I would say Elizabeth, talk to Linda separately, reach out to her as well. I think that would be probably good. Any other thoughts on that, Linda?
Yeah, definitely. Because I don’t want to answer a question. That’s not the question because I don’t really know exactly what the question is and how that will apply. So let’s hop on a call and just, you know, I don’t do like sales calls. I’m not going to get on a call and sell at you. I want to hear what you’re doing and how I might be able to help you. And if so, then I’ll let you know how I can help for sure or guide you in the right direction of somebody else that can help.
Here’s the other question she’s asking. Will it be possible to publish on a regular size book with Oracle cards. Can Oracle cards be printed via this website? I’m not sure which website if she’s talking about Ingram or again, that might be a really good thing to just connect with Linda. She’s inside my healthy and wealthy and wise group, and this is just a little PSA public service announcement. Most of you who are on this line are inside of my healthy and wealthy and wise community. So is Linda.
So are my next three guest speakers this month. So come in. The water is warm. A lot of like minded health experts, wealth experts and wisdom experts. Just go to Healthyandwealthyandwise. Com or lewiscopy. Com and you’ll be able to find how to find this group on Facebook and join. We also have a shout out. She did clarify it was Ingram. So I think again.
I call because yours is very specific, Elizabeth. For me to be able to talk about more general is easier. But since yours is very specific and complex, I want to make sure that I can help you the best that I can. So we’ll definitely see this inside of the healthy, wealthy and wise group. And I’ll go ahead and just send you a private message with a link to my calendar. Let’s get on a calendar. Let’s get on a call and see how I can help you.
Awesome. And just want to give a shout out. I’m not going to read your whole message. Joanne Wylin would love to connect with you as well, and she’s my friend inside of the space, and I believe she’s tuning in on my fan page. You can also watch this from my fan page. I know we’re running out of time and this just flies by fast. You said you had a gift for everyone. Can you share with us what it is again and how they can redeem that gift?
Definitely. Thanks, Louis, for having me. It’s been awesome, as always before. I share my free gift. I just want to share with you that we have a goal. The Action Takers publishing just officially launched two months ago and we’re already getting ready to publish our first book. So that’s exciting. But we have a goal of publishing 25 books in 2022. That means two books a month, at least. Right. And so I’m really looking forward to seeing what 2022 holds for us. We have a lot of people who are interested in working with us, so I’m Super excited about that.
What I have to share today is a free copy, free download of my book, The Year of Fears. It’s the seven most important lessons that I learned that will save you time and money. And that book is endorsed by Mr. Les Brown, Mr. Motivational Speaker Les Brown himself. So if you would like a copy of that, just go to thegyearoffeares dot com and download a copy of it today. It’s available for you.
Yeah, I’ll write that down I’ll put that in the show notes.

My last event of the year that isn’t podcast related is a free online networking event December 16 at 03:00 P.m.. Pacific. Actually, Linda kicked off the year with my online AGC networking events, so I’m going to be the guest speaker. I’m going to be talking about how to get more done in 2022 than the average human with the twelve week Gear concepts. Again, it’s free, and then you get to network with a bunch of other like minded people. So I will be live streaming that inside of this group.
But if you want to be a part of the networking component, you got to register. So shoot me a message if you want that information. I’ll also put that information in the show notes. So you know how to register so you can meet people from all over the world and possibly find a business partner, find a client, find a referral partner, find a new friend and grow your network. Because I know that’s how Linda and I met in person back in the day. And here we are, still two and a half years later, helping each other with quality referrals introductions and of course, just good old fashioned fun.
So as we close this out, my last question, all my guests and I don’t know if you remember this question, Linda, maybe you’re a different person now, right? Because this is how many months later. But I always close with the same question when you hear the phrase healthy and wealthy and wise. Linda, what does it mean for you?
Well, I really look more right now, especially at the wise part, because I’m not the healthiest I’ve been ever. And then the wealthy part. What I love about that is that wealth comes in many different ways and everybody has their own definition of wealth. And for me, I am one of the most wealthy people on the planet because I finally learned who I am and then stepping up as myself and you talked about the authenticity. And so you’re living my life authentically is very important to me.
And that’s what I think about when I think about helping wealthy and wise.
I love it. I love it. Well, thank you so much. And just to encourage you and everyone, it’s not about arriving at your best health and your best wealth and your best wisdom and being perfect, right? We are all on a journey in this together and supporting one another through this thing called life. So please invite your friends and connections and family and colleagues and clients to join this community, healthy and wealthy and wise so that they can not only hear this episode, but future episodes next week.
I’m actually really excited. We have my newfound friend. I call them my new found pandemic friend, Mary Jenkins. She’s a two time cancer survivor, and she’s got an amazing passion for helping women live their best life. So tune in next Friday, same time, same channel. Invite all your friends who are looking for encouragement. There’s a lot of people struggling with health challenges right now. And so when you never hear a story about overcoming cancer and she’s got a very, very vulnerable, powerful message to share with us, you could really change someone’s life just with that one message.
That one story like Linda was talking about today. So thank you, guys, for tuning in. Tuning out, hit the share button. And again until next time. Here’s to your best health, your best wealth and your best wisdom. Bye bye for now. Thanks, Linda.
