We are constantly talking about being more creative, being more productive, planning and managing our time. But do we know how important it is to relax and take a break from work? In this episode, I am talking about the importance of relaxation and how to take a break from the daily routine and leave your body and brain to recover. The continuous exposure to stress may lead to problems such as headache, stomach problems, high blood pressure and even more serious problems such as heart disease and stroke. So taking a break to relax and have some fun is a crucial part of your life. Going out with friends or walking in the park are just some of the ways you can relax and refill with energy.

E06: When to start market yourself as a writer
Marketing is a very hard work. Especially for someone who is afraid even to call her/himself "a writer". So in today's episode I am talking about when you have to start market yourself as a writer. Of course, it all depends on your goals. It's not the same whether you want to write just for fun or you plan to sell your books. If the latter is the case then maybe you have to start thinking about marketing yourself as a writer sooner than you have expected. It takes a lot of time to gather the visibility you will need to market your books. It takes a lot of time to gather followers and subscribers. That's why I am sharing with you my understanding of when you should start market yourself as a writer and to call yourself a writer. To learn more, listen to the episode.

E01: Why start thinking as an authorpreneur
In today's episode I am sharing with you some of my thoughts about why it's important to start thinking as an authorpreneur if you want to succeed as a writer. Being a writer nowadays is a lot different from what it was a few years ago. Now all writers have access to different self-publishing platforms. Social media and technology also changed the face of the writing and publishing industry. Now, if you want to be a successful writer, you have to think about marketing strategies and campaigns, creating author platforms and being social. But is it worth the effort? Why to do all these stuff instead of just writing? The truth is that there are millions of books published every year. And if you want to succeed as a writer you have to start thinking as an entrepreneur. Listen to this episode to learn what are the exact reasons that made me decide to be an authorpreneur. *** If you share my vision and my reasons for becoming an authorpreneur leave me a comment, like the episode and subscribe.
