is creating Value—a manual for creating deep self-regard in your life.
I learned something after chasing my dream for over thirty years and finally realizing it—it’s not my successes that are going to make me feel satisfied, whole, valuable, or rich. Writing the book of my dreams, You Don’t Look Adopted, did not get me the love I craved or the money I needed to pay my bills or the peace of mind to sleep easily at night. What happened was that I wrote a book about being broke/broken and I ended up, well, in many ways more broke. Broker.
I am on a quest to find out how to live the best life possible, and I am learning that getting value is an inside job. I am also learning that many of us have experienced some form of trauma in our childhood that left us feeling barely worth a handful of change, and I have observed that when you feel this way inside, your outside world often ends up looking very much the same. This is small change living, and this is not how we are meant to live. We are meant to shine so we can have adventures and fun and better serve those around us.
My superpower is that I can see the value in others. I can see how rich people truly are despite the feelings of lack they carry in their guts. I can see the repressed stories, the blocked talents, the beliefs that keep a magnificent person feeling like a pipsqueak. As a result, I developed a series of writing exercises I call Write or Die to help people see who they are. The point of Write or Die is to get people to see their own value.
What you can’t do, you teach.
I am writing this book, this manual, this call to love, to see what happens when I expose value as an inside job, to see what happens when I apply Write or Die to my own life. Can I get to the point where I can finally afford a place of my own? Can I finally have not only a savings account but health insurance? Can I speak to myself inside my head with kind support? What happens when I stop telling the world I am broke?
I believe of course I can do all these things. I just have no idea how.

And that’s the story of Value.
