About Peggy Lusk:
Peggy is a Business Consultant, Financial Coach and Instructor who broke away from Corporate America to create her Life of Abundance. Peggy’s ‘aha moment’ that impelled her to make this break came in 2007. Physically and mentally exhausted from weeks of relentless business travel that left little time for relaxation, joy, or connection with others, she left a high-paying corporate position to create a better life for herself and her family.
Peggy is committed to providing others the knowledge and skills they need to design a life of Financial Freedom. Helping clients fill the gaps between their current life and financial circumstances and guiding them to get where they want to go are always top of mind priorities. Men, women, and couples at mid-life are among her most appreciative and engaged clients.
What sets Peggy apart from other coaches who focus on money and life matters is that she is truly gifted at customizing workable action plans that clients really can apply to achieve the results they seek with ease and complete understanding. Peggy has the talent of translating and communicating complex and potentially confusing financial concepts in ways that bring about insight and understanding.
Peggy also believes that money is just one part of a much bigger life equation: How you spend your time to live an abundant life is just as important as how much money is left later. It won’t matter how wealthy you become; if you sacrifice your health and personal life to build financial wealth.
What inspires you to write?
I’m a reader myself, so I felt this was an important method of getting my important information out to others who find that reading is their best method of learning. I’m passionate about helping families to learn the important pieces of a solid financial planning process, so they can take control over their financial future.
Tell us about your writing process.
I am definitely an outliner type of writer. I find that brainstorming the topics I want to cover and putting the results in a mindmap help me to arrange my thoughts, and get the information more complete. I then do my writing with Scrivener, so the formatting is easier to perform. (I have an editor who works with Scrivener, so I don’t have to transfer my book in and out of Word for the editing process.)
What advice would you give other writers?
Allocate some time each day to work on your book, even when you don’t feel like it. The progress you make will add up and give you the encouragement you need to feel like creating a book is really possible.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I connected with a training program that broke down the writing process into a flow of activities and kept it from being overwhelming. This program also connected me with other authors who were going through the same process. We kept each other motivated and helped each other through the things we were struggling with. For a new writer, this significantly reduced the learning curve.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think the future is exciting!! Many people who aspired to be writers and were blocked by a publisher’s opinions of the value of the work are now able to self-publish and let the readers decide. I think that now that the tools are in place, more and more writers will choose self-publishing as a viable method of sharing their talents with a world audience.
