Turning Pain Into Passion

I want to achieve extraordinary goals — not just ho-hum, common, run-of-the-mill ones.   I want to have a seismic impact on how our world views violence against women and change how sexual assault victims recover…so no woman has to endure what I experienced after my sexual assault….fear, shame, trauma, hurt, despair, post traumatic stress, anxiety, depression.
     So, how do I go about it?  I’ve been reading Chris Brogan’s book, “The Freaks Shall Inherit theWorld,” and I proudly admit I am a freak by Chris’s definition because I want to turn my entrepreneurial vision into a reality…all the while making an impact and a profit.  (The profit part hasn’t come yet and I’ve been at it 3 years).
     Let’s face it…there aren’t that many middle-aged, petite women from rural Georgia going around the country talking about rape, speaking about this taboo subject matter, convinced her message can save lives.
But I can’t help it.  That’s what makes me a freak.   
To achieve these extraordinary goals, Chris Brogan tells me I have to define what success means to me.
    This is what success looks like:
Jenny Lynn speaks to thousands upon thousands of sexual assault victims who are connected through sexual assault coalitions in the United States.  Jenny Lynn also speaks to college campus organizations.  These women, in turn, purchase my book or I partner with organizations to purchase my book at a discount so they give victims my book.  They tell others about “Room 939” and Jenny Lynn.  They go to my website and become a friend on Facebook, Twitter.  They sign up for my free blog and know they are not alone.  They find support and a friend in Jenny Lynn.  They break their silence also.  They write a review on Amazon, Goodreads, etc.  More people find Jenny Lynn’s book.  JENNY LYNN HELPS OTHERS.
It’s as simple as that.
Will you share this blog with a friend who needs my book?  Will you write an Amazon review about my book?  Will you support me in my dreams?  If you do, message me below and let me know what success looks like in your life.
