It comes as no surprise that Jane Carroll’s book, Bertha Size Your Life! hit the number one spot on Amazon Kindle this week. The book has become a sensation and inspiration for baby boomers that have hit a wall in their life and feel they can’t go on.

Carroll knew she had a hit on her hands when Bertha popped into her head on an otherwise uneventful day eight years ago, but once the book was published she struggled with the marketing side of the business. After burning through her savings while trying unsuccessfully to promote her book she realized she would have to go back to work and left her dream behind.

In the fall of 2011 Carroll decided she had wasted enough time and took action to create her dream of becoming a bestselling author. She entered The Extreme Author Makeover Contest sponsored by MasterKoda.com (a book and author promotional service) and won a promotional package. That is when things started to turn around for her.

“Winning that contest was like opening the flood gates of success,” Carroll states. “Even before the promotions started doors were flying open for me. It’s like Bertha says in the book, ‘When life hands you an ostrich—make a boa!’”

Those looking for humor, wisdom and motivation wrapped up in one book would do well to pick up a copy of Bertha Size your Life!

Standing Firm

I came across a quote by Abraham Lincoln today…

Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm.

Bertha had a bit of a field day with it… reminding me of all the times I have done the standing firm part… without making sure my feet were in the right place…

Thankfully… she says I don’t have to list them all… this could be a very long blog… I mean there are… relationships… houses… jobs… all of which I have argued for and held on to… even though they really weren’t right for me… or in my best interest…

But… she does want us to talk about… money… spending money on things… and how easily I can decide that all my problems would be solved… if I only had this latest gadget… or cashmere sweater… or new car… or whatever it is… as I stand firmly and hand over my debit card… only to find myself in the same life I was in before… just a little… or a lot… poorer…

What can I say… even as I am making it a habit to pare down… to release the excess in my life… it’s still so easy… to fall for the immediacy of buying something… without taking the time to fully consider the impact it will make on my life… thankfully… in addition to Bertha… I have very practical friends… who have no problem telling me that I don’t need a new car… or a second house… or so many other things that sound so necessary in the moment…

Hopefully… they don’t roll their eyes as much as Bertha does… but who knows… I guess I really don’t care as long as they help me put my feet in the right place… before I dig in… and have two houses… one for each cat…
