Book Description: You’ll love this book about success and achievement; a book about outrunning ordinary and achieving extraordinary. It’s a book for those who want to change a few habits, as well as those who want to change the world. In these pages, I’ll share not only my stories, but also the stories of many remarkable people. In some cases, you’ll be introduced to ordinary individuals who have achieved extraordinary goals (like my friend who is passionate about bringing fresh drinking water to third-world countries). In other cases, you’ll meet people who excel in their areas of expertise but have faced and rebounded from seemingly insurmountable challenges (like the college track star who fell in a critical race at the Big Ten Championships yet still won her race). In all cases, the people you read about have the same overarching aspiration – to survive the middle miles in order to go somewhere special and attain worthwhile goals. Will you have ever have to survive the middle miles? Of course! Anything worth having, doing or accomplishing forces you to spend some time in the middle miles. If you’ve ever set a goal and had to work hard to achieve it, then you know the feeling. Maybe it’s wooing a new customer or spearheading your company’s new initiative. Perhaps it’s opening a new business, starting a new job, or working on an important project. To be successful with such endeavors, you have to get through the lean times. You might be pursuing a different type of goal, such a running a marathon or losing a few pounds. It doesn’t matter, because what all these examples have in common is that the middle miles await you. In the beginning of your endeavor, everybody is cheering. It’s exciting. It’s new. It might even be fun. As you work your way forward in time, though, the fun slowly dissipates. Interest and encouragement from the early supporters begin to wane. The problem in the middle miles is that it’s too early to see the results that will occur with perseverance and patience. Many get disillusioned. Many get lonely, frustrated and aggravated. Some stop trying, or quit altogether – like I did in those 3 marathons. Congratulations. By reading this far, you’ve shown the courage to start the race. Keep going, and the pages of this book will demonstrate what it takes to get where you’re going in life. You’ll learn how to get back up when you fall, how to own your result and how to train your thoughts, so that you have the best chance to outrun ordinary and achieve extraordinary results. Those are just a few examples. It’s going to be a great journey and you’re going to make it to the finish line.



Project Info: Darryl found us using social media. He posted in a shared group that he was looking for someone to help him with his manuscript. After taking a look at Tara’s recommendations on LinkedIn, he decided he wanted to work with her.

He had a preferred cover designer, Tonic Vision, who had created the covers for his earlier books, so his cover was all set. The designer had also created a series of line drawing illustrations to be scattered throughout the book to enhance the copy.

We worked with Darryl to create the book he wanted in the short timeline he had to work with. (He needed the book ready in time for an upcoming speaking engagement.) We’re glad to say that he had it on time!

I self-published 5 books before asking Tara to help with the 6th one. The result was a professional manuscript that looks far better than anything I produced! Tara worked quickly, in an organized fashion and seemed to treat my work like it was her own. I highly recommend!
