Hi there! My name is Dey Dos and I'm a freelancer in the whole sense of the word. I freely choose to engage in a diverse set of very exciting projects, and when my part is done I always move on to the next big thing that will keep me creating and most importantly: HAPPY! - You can find more about me in my website.
I will define my current life style as eternal and awesome holidays, of the type worth remembering! I do what I love to do (from facilitating and public speaking to coaching and brand design), I constantly travel to exciting destinations and, in each one of these places, I meet new people with whom I share my discoveries and from whom I learn new perspectives about life. And that's exactly what I want to bring to you with this book: a simple - yet powerful - way to design a life style that makes you happy and keeps you excited!
More than a book, I want it to be a guide; not with instructions, but full of exercises. A book not only to read but to write in, like a journal! I envision the book with spaces for you to write your discoveries, to track your progress and to map your new path! A guide for you to experiment a set of different proposals I'm drafting based on my experiences; a lot of stories that I have compiled from my trips to 76 countries and my 10 years of experience as a Life Coach. All in all, I want the book to be a companion for you in your quest to design the life style that matches that of your dreams!
The book is written in 10 simple chapters, each of them making reference to a key learning point of my journey:
- Big Changes Start From Within
- Stop Asking “Who Am I?”
- Choose To Believe
- Don’t Give A Damn!
- Company Matters, A Lot!
- There Is No Other Moment
- Just Say “YES” To Something
- Do What You Say You’re Going To Do
- Happy Endings Are Real
- Trust That Life Is Wise
I just want to have the freedom to fully dedicate my next two months to finish the book without having to worry financially and then defocusing by engaging in other revenue generating activities. I also want my travels within the next two months to be fully dedicated to gather more stories to make the book better without having to worry about anything else.
I've been working on this book for quite a while and have the complete draft ready. Now I want to dedicate myself to compile the exercises within the different chapters and add the stories that give personality to each one of them. The idea is to have the book ready for self-publishing by the end of September; so, if you support me with any of the perks that includes a signed book, you'll receive your copies by the end of October 2012!
Your support to this campaign will give me the freedom I need to enter into my "popcorn creation mood" and get the book finished. And I have to say that this is all I dream about for the past month or so!
If you can't contribute money, I understand (believe me!) Or if you prefer to wait for the release of the book to buy it, I understand that as well!
The book will be available to be purchased online only, and the shipping costs plus my hand written personalized dedication truly make it a better deal to pre-buy it here - I had to say it!
Please notice that no matter what you contribution is, your name will be listed in a special acknowledgments page of the book! Also notice that all perks that involve copies of the book include shipping from Portugal to anywhere in the world using express not trackable shipment. I'll start shipping the books in October, so depending on where you are you will be receiving yours latest by the end of November 2012.
So, why should YOU support this campaign? Simple: Because - as I mention it earlier - it will be cheaper for you; because your book will arrive with a personal dedication handwritten from me; and because in that way you will make sure that I can completely focus the next two months to finish something totally awesome for YOU!
There are other ways in which you can also help me out:
- Like the page of the book in Facebook and contribute as much as you can in the co-creation of the content by answering the questions I will be posting and by sharing your stories.
- If you have any type of questions, please post them in the comments section of this campaign in the top tabs or in the timeline of the Facebook page of the book. I'll answer them as fast as I can, my promise!
- Let your friends and colleagues know about this campaign so that they contribute as well. You can use the share tools in this page to help me spread the word, I'll appreciate that a lot!
As I said before, this book is also part of my journey and your support means a lot to me! And that’s all there is to it.
Thanks zillions for your support!
