“Become the Fire” Is Now an Audiobook: Grab Your Headphones & Be Inspired

Looking for inspiration? I’m a huge fan of audiobooks because they make it so easy to be inspired. You just grab your headphones and start listening!

I just learned that the audio version of Become the Fire has been released on Audible by my audio publisher, Ascent Audio. That means if you haven’t had the time or opportunity to read the book yet, you can sit back and hear me read it to you! Whether you’re driving, cooking, ideating or just in need of some “me time,” I hope you’ll take a listen.

I’m so excited to share the audio version of Become the Fire with you. Clocking in at a listening time of 9 hours and 38 minutes, the audiobook is free if you give Audible a try, or you can download it with one click on Amazon for around $18.

My husband said I’ve got my “TV broadcaster” voice on for this recording, but I think it’s just me being me, LOL. Can’t wait to hear what you think. Let me know, and Happy New Year! Let’s make 2023 the year you become the fire!!

This photo was taken in the recording studio, narrating the audiobook. To keep it real, here’s some fun behind-the-scenes info:

I had to submit an audio sample of me reading a 5-minute excerpt of the book, almost like an audition, to secure my role as narrator. Yep, voice actors and professional narrators are a thing, and they’re really good at what they do. So I was thrilled to “get the part!”

In the studio, I had to wear “quiet” clothing and jewelry while recording, because the mic picks up everything.

Because the mic picks up everything, the amazing sound engineer I worked with could hear every single thing that happened in my private recording booth. That means after taking a sip of water and my stomach gurgled, we’d giggle (I could hear her through my headphones).

About eating: “I’ll know you’re hungry before you do!” she said right before my tummy rumbled. After lunch, she had the kindness to say, “Well that was a dainty burp!” I was embarrassed, but she said she’s heard so much worse!

Aren’t you glad I keep it real for ya? Being the authentic you is part of becoming the fire, so you get the authentic me (lucky you, LOL)!

Become the Fire: Transform Life’s Chaos into Business and Personal Success makes a great gift, too.
