Cherilyn Vonn, author of Weekly Wisdom: 52 Ways to Live a More Fulfilled Life
(Aminia Books and Publishing)
Weekly Wisdom acts as a mirror reflecting those images that we often avoid looking at because it reveals the truth about ourselves that we often try to disguise or avoid all together. As women we are taught to be strong and never reveal our insecurities are fears and yet in trying to be everything to everyone we often loose ourselves in the process. This book serves as the foundational platform that allows you to be stress free, drama free and debt free in order for you to live your life to the fullest by:
- Drawing you desire
- Getting unplugged
- Releasing your past
Joey Pinkney: Where did you get the idea and inspiration to write Weekly Wisdom: 52 Ways to Live a More Fulfilled Life?
Cherilyn Vonn: Pain was the guiding force that paved way for the conception of Weekly Wisdom. I finally got to a point in my life where I was “sick and tired of being sick and tired!” I knew GOD had a larger vision of me than I had for myself. I found myself on an emotional merry-go-round of complacency, failed relationships and negativity. It was honestly draining the life out of me.
I believe we all come to a point in our lives in which we question our existence. For me I knew there had to be more to life than merely working a j.o.b. that I hated, living paycheck to paycheck and spiritually exhausted! I started a journey of understanding and forgiveness that allowed me the opportunity to find myself and embrace the essence of who I am and not the illusion of others perception of who I was or should be.
I released self-loathing for self-love, self-sabotage for self-acceptance and self-criticism for self-knowledge and forgiveness. I wanted to help others. Weekly Wisdom is a life-enrichment tool that has information and insight for everyone who are ready to release the shackles and be free!
JP: What sets Weekly Wisdom apart from other motivational books?
CV: Motivation, ugh! I always cringe when I hear that word. Weekly Wisdom is not a motivational book. Let me explain my reasoning; to me motivation is based off your feelings and emotions. We’ve all been to a seminar or read a book that motivated us to change. Just as quickly as the motivation came, it quickly left. Nine times out of 10, the urge to change did too.
Weekly Wisdom: 52 Ways to Live a More Fulfilled Life is a blueprint for making the necessary changes to be stress free, debt free and drama free. It’s an owner’s manual that never loses its value or importance. The wisdom embedded throughout this book is what I have used to transform my life as well as others who have used these very principles and are now reaping the benefits of living authentically and purposefully!
Many “motivational” books out today offer a sugar rush without giving you the “meat and potatoes” that will sustain the readers. It’s like eating dessert without the main course. This book is the dinner that gives you the valuable nutrients needed to live a healthy life.
JP: As an author, what are the keys to your success that lead to Weekly Wisdom getting out to the public?
CV: Commitment, faith, discipline and obedience!
JP: As an author, what is your writing process? How long did it take for you to start and finish Weekly Wisdom?
CV: Writing the book didn’t take very long at all. The real work, or shall I say process, started after I wrote the book. There’s more to writing a book of any genre than merely putting pen to paper. There is a lot of behind the scene work that is involved. My writing process was simply making a commitment to write no less than a chapter a day!
There were a few days the chapters sort of spilled forth effortlessly, and there where other times that a chapter was all I could do. My commitment was no less than a chapter a day. Within a month’s time, I had completed my first draft of Weekly Wisdom!
JP: What’s next for Cherilyn Vonn?
CV: I am currently working on my second book entitled Unveiling the Mask as well as a few other projects in which I am contributing too. Weekly Wisdom has become a movement which includes workshops and tele-seminars as well as coaching process! I’m thankful for the favorable responses since it’s release!
