It’s gone pretty quiet here on UnPickled Blog and The Bubble Hour podcast as I’ve been busy behind the scenes preparing Season 10 of the podcast and finishing my latest book. The new book is out now and I’m so excited to share it with all of you.

A few years back I wrote a post about the stages of change: precontemplation, contemplation, preparation, action, and maintenence. Most of us spend a looooong time thinking about quitting before we take the leap and quit for good. What if that time frame was used to plant seeds for future success?
