AME 085 How I published my first book and manifested my dream



Manifesting Your Ultimate Goal: AME 085

Do you have a dream that you’ve been working towards? The goal that when accomplished, will fill your bucket list and give you permission to say, I did it?

What if, after working tirelessly for years on this one dream, you decide to abandon it…give up.

What would that say about you?

Are you a quitter?

In this episode of Art Made Easy, I’m sharing my book publishing journey…how it started, what I learned and ultimately, how different my dream looked in the end.

This episode is for anyone who wants to pursue writing a book and how the process looked for me.


– How a childhood passion became the catalyst to my ultimate dream

– Why learning all you can about your chosen path leads you success

– How it feels to let a dream go and allow the universe take over

– How to know if your hard work will pay off

– When to know if you are trying too hard

– Alternative ways to view “giving up”

    Hi Patty
    I so enjoyed your podcast about your childhood and how u created these characters in your Greenwood School. As I listened to u I envisioned color forms with all the images of each girl and all their parfinalia that goes with them. With each new character having pamphlets that talks about their life, surroundings and personalities. Or they could be like Barbie doll type dolls but more athletic looking. I think your idea should be a toy for girls. Ever think of that.?. I don’t think Greenwood is dead. -Best Carmela
