Ready to Write Your First Book?





I'm offering a limited number of FREE Write Your First Book 1-hour Writing Strategy sessions. 😊

This is for you Lady Bosses and Mompreneurs struggling to make that jump from “wish-I-could-be-an-author” to actual Book Writer.📚

Maybe you've got an idea for a story, but you have spent way too many hours thinking about writing a book, hoping and praying for inspiration to strike, or for time to free up in your schedule.

Or maybe you know what you're meant to do, but you are struggling with how to turn that story into an actual book people are begging you to read.

Either way, you need some clarity, and fast.

If you're so ready to:

* Finally have a step-by-step action plan to get that story inside of you out to the world, instead of spending your time doing everything for everyone else in your life

* Get clarity on how to create a time to write in your schedule so quickly, the words start flying out of your head and onto the screen

* Be confident that you've GOT what it takes to become an author (and a good one at that!)

Then let's talk! 🙋🏾

How I created my family from scratch: Mahlena's Dream Board story

What is the ONE thing you would put on a Dream Board, 
if you knew it would DEFINITELY come true in 2 years?


This is not a story about how to find a husband.

I want to make that clear, because

1. Not everybody needs a husband. Most people don't.

2. This story is about much more than that.

3. I don't want to write a story telling you how to find a husband! There are already plenty of relationship coaches and matchmakers and weird old men out there telling women (and men) how to find a husband. That's not what this is about.

Steve Harvey, I'm looking at you. 
bt-dubs, Asian men are just as delightful as men from any other continent.


Back to my story.

In January of 2010, I was broken up with. Okay, calling it a break up would be generous. I was swiftly rejected by someone whom I thought I was going to have a relationship with. I was devastated. And I still had to get through my final semester of business school, an experience that also did not live up to my expectations.
