Turn Your Book into Gold

Tayna Miller, speaker and author

Episode #63

Guest Speaker ~ Tanya Miller

“​When it comes to a title, in addition to the cover of your book, they are the first things that people see and read. I want a title that not only tells you what you’re going to be reading about, but helps you to feel what you’re going to read.”
– Tanya Miller

Our conversation begins while she is in a medical exam room and ends with her in the passenger seat of a vehicle. It is clear Tanya does not allow too much to stop her from doing what she loves – motivating people to live life with purpose.

Pour a mug of lemon ginger tea for yourself and enjoy this motivational conversation with Tanya Miller.

A personal note: I learned another lesson on never assume last week. When Tanya Miller said something like, “Cindy, can you speak up. I’m having a difficult time hearing you,” I should have explored the WHY. Instead, I assumed she couldn’t hear me because she was in a medical exam room. I assumed wrong… so very wrong.

Before you listen to this episode, I have to let you know one of my worst fears happened. I was devastated when I uploaded the audio file and found the sound waves so far off balance; it caused my heart to pause. I held my breath and hit the play button while begging, “Oh God, please, please, please let me hear my voice.” My vocals barely created a ripple on that daunting line. And then, my techie-I-can-fix-this mindset when to work. The end result of edit is okay (kinda sorta). It’s not perfect. But there is no way Tanya and I could replicate what we unpacked. The flow was natural, sincere, and powerful!

Tanya is a brilliant young woman and deserves your time. She shared a tremendous amount of information on how to turn our books into gold and motivated me to take action. Tanya is a powerful motivator. Again, she deserves time on stage.
