We each have a gift to share with the world in a way that only we can share it.
My gift is in the form of writing a book. And I believe the world is hungry and ready to receive this gift.
Many of us are familiar with working harder, doing more, and constantly improving. But what about being good with who we are?
There are millions of self-help books out there that teach us how to “fix” ourselves, how to be less this or more that, how to reach our potential by following a one-size-fits-all formula. I’ve read many of them, and most of them are missing a key truth.
While we may be a work-in-progress, we are already a masterpiece. We are already whole and complete just the way we are. And it is by revealing this to ourselves that the healing begins. This is what my book is all about.
The incredible news is that I have the opportunity to bring this book into the world by next spring! I have met an amazing publisher—Jane Ashley from Flower of Life Press—who believes in me and this book and is excited to help me bring it into the world through a hybrid publishing model.
Here's what Jane has to say in her own words:
"At Flower of Life Press, our mission is to support those 'voices of transformation' that may otherwise be drowned out by the Media Matrix—in particular, women and men who speak the language of the new paradigm—health and healing, love, spiritual development, and tools for elevating our lives to a place of passion, commitment, and authentic power.
Our authors are ready to step forward into the world to shine their light as a way of creating a vibration of love in the world. Amanda Johnson is one such woman, and I know in my heart that her mission to support women in remembering their inherent beauty and wholeness is so needed in the world during these fractious and uncertain times.
Amanda carries the energy of a very high level of servant leadership in the world. When I first met her, I knew that Amanda's voice mattered, and I felt compelled to support her in the journey of creating her book, to help her birth her creation and support getting her words out far and wide. Amanda's dedication and commitment to creating the resources needed to produce her book, her integrity, her open heart, and her willingness to walk her talk and lead are awe-inspiring!
This new paradigm of conscious evolution requires collaboration and community, and I am honored to be her publisher, and to usher forth her vision and power as a divinely feminine leader. The gifts of her words are like seeds that will travel far and wide to land, grow roots, and cultivate change for those who open their minds and their hearts to receive them.
Thank you for supporting Amanda and this important book."
Watch my video to learn more about me and my personal mission to serve and inspire many, many people to become enough with who they already are and to experience more peace, ease, and love in their lives.
As a writer, teacher, creator of Being Good with Being You, and host of the Being Inspired Radio Show, I have spent the past two and a half years writing and creating content to inspire others to be more of who they are in each and every moment. That’s more than 75 articles, over 8 hours’ worth of video content, and 12 hours’ (and counting) worth of podcasts.
All of this has been created and offered for free because I believe in the power of giving.
Now, I plan to take all that I have learned along the way and share my self-reflective journey to the already perfect self in my first full-length book. With already more than 12,000 words drafted and a publisher supporting me, I am confident that I am well-positioned to serve as the humble channel to bring this gift into the world.
But I can't do it alone.
I choose to create this gift in partnership with you. Should you desire to partner with me in this way, I invite you to consider how much you feel called to give. I am extremely grateful for any amount you choose.
Asking to receive support is a vulnerable thing to do. A lot of fear crops up when taking leaps of faith such as this. Yet, we live in an abundant world and I believe that when we partner together anything is possible.
I will gladly accept any amount (however large or small) you are willing to give. Even $5 will make a huge impact. (Of course, $250 will make an even bigger one!) ;-)
The minimum amount it will cost me to publish this book is $7500. Any pledges I receive above and beyond that will simply make it possible for me to get even more books into more hands—covering the price to print and purchase more books and do larger-scale promotion and marketing efforts.
My mission is to inspire anyone who, like me, thinks they are broken, constantly doing it wrong, and tired of never feeling good enough realize that all our “enough-ness” has been living inside us all along—we just need to reveal it. As I like to say, “It’s not about being more or being better; it’s about being good with being you.” This is where the healing begins.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting me and my dream becoming true to reach and inspire others.

Risks and challenges
My main challenge at this time is having access to the resources to get this book published. If I don’t reach my goal, I will not receive any amount of what is pledged and this gift risks not reaching and inspiring others to become enough with who they already are.
It is through your contribution and support that I will reach my goal and, in partnership with you, bring this book into the world.
Once the campaign is fully funded, the next challenge I can foresee is getting this book into the hands of those who need it most. Writing and publishing the book is the first step (and a BIG one at that!); marketing it and ensuring those who need it most hear about it is the next step.
I plan to face this challenge by working with my publisher to promote and market my book starting this year using social media, interviews, and other events (like a book tour and a conference I will be speaking at in May).
Equally, I plan to partner with you, my supporters, to help me spread the word and get more copies sold once the book is published. A book can only serve and inspire others if it is read.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
