I am a total bibliophile, and nothing makes me happier than getting a sneak peek inside a book that I’ve been wanting to read! So I thought that I should make it easy for people just like you to sneak a peek inside ‘Unleash Your Awesome’. I’m in the process of organising the third print-run,

I couldn’t tell you how long I’ve dreamed of writing and publishing a book. It’s finally about to happen! You see, on 1st February 2022, I started writing a book about strengths. Since then, I’ve written four full drafts. That’s around 200,000 words that stayed on the (electronic) page. Not to mention the countless tens
