Below is my interview with Judi —
Lis – What made you want to write this book?
Judi – I am a motivational speaker/trainer and as I traveled the world speaking with groups of 30 to 3,000 people, I kept hearing people say they wanted to be more, do more, have more. These people were disappointed and discouraged with where they are or where they seem to be headed and they didn’t seem to know how to change it. After the seminars/programs, people would write and say they used the techniques I shared with them and their lives were better….so I thought the way to share the information with more people would be to write a book…thus “You Are More Than Enough” was born. My goal is to get it into the hands of 100,000 women this year.
Lis – What are the most common fears that keep people from finding their purpose?
Judi – The most common fears that hold people back are the fear of failure and the fear of rejection. These fears go hand in hand. If I fail, people will laugh at me or reject me. So we give up or don’t try, rather than appear stupid or incapable.
Lis – What fear did you have to overcome to get to where you are today?
Judi – I had to give up many fears to become who I am today… the fear of failure, the fear of what other people would think, the fear of povery, the fear of being wrong. I had to learn to take risks and not pay attention to other people’s criticism. I had to learn to trust God and myself.
Lis – What’s the one piece of advice you hope readers of your book take away with them?
Judi – Readers will have to be ready to read this book. “You Are More Than Enough” is not a “feel good” book. It’s a “be excellent” book. They will probably go through a whole range of emotions…from crying to laughter…to anger. To get the most out of this book, the reader will need to be open, willing and prepared to think about what they read and put into practice those technique and skills they believe will work for them. They may even need to try a few things they have doubts about. I know my advice works if you give it a chance. It’s worked for me and for the people I have written about in the book. So my advice is “Read it and give it a chance.”

Excellent interview, Lis. Thanks for sharing.
Totally off topic, but you’re my go to buddy for hockey…what happened with Gator?! I can’t believe he’s gone. Any guesstimates for captain? I’m thinking Steve or Ethan?
Its a great book :o)
I still can’t believe they dealt gator myself. A lot of the guys were upset, I know there was a good quote from Ethan the next day saying he didn’t care who they got in return, he couldn’t believe they’d deal Jason.
I can see the C going to Steve, Ethan or maybe even Horcoff if he’s still around. Its going to be one heck of an odd team this year
