The specific audience identified in this piece feels small because I sense that my message is for many types of people … including, but not limited to, smart capable women. I understand that ‘current wisdom’ suggests identifying a ‘narrowly defined target market’ wanting to ‘accomplish a specific goal’ is the way to create success and make money quickly within a clearly defined ‘niche’ … but I’m not at all sure it’s what I’m on earth to do.

It took me a while, but I’ve expanded and clarified my focus and shared four labyrinth pieces in the next post in answer to four questions posed by Christine Kloser in the Transformational Authors Experience series. After working with the Soundbite Shaman, Isabel Parlett over the past couple of weeks. I’m learning to think ‘stragetically’ to balance my ‘expressive’ writing and will have new offerings here very soon … so check this link for more specifics, let me know what you think, and stay tuned for more here and at Giraffe Journal.
