I mentioned Lilou in this blog, whereafter she contacted me and asked me to help her with her latest project. Believing in the “Law of Attraction”, Lilou, who had just been fired, had the idea of using the Law to find her dream job. Never doubting that she would succeed, she also wanted to record every step of the journey – every thought and adventure – to prove the efficacy of the Law of Attraction, and to help others find their dream jobs in this time of economic crisis.
Her audio and video journal was then transcribed. My job was to help Lilou turn these transcriptions, recorded over little more than a month, into a book. It all had to be done quickly, as Lilou wanted the book out in April. The draft back cover tells you more about the book’s nature and purpose:
Because the book is essentially a diary, it details how Lilou came across me and the brilliant young photographer, Jack Latimer, who took the cover shots. Here are the two pictures on their own, so that you can see a bit more detail:
Why the avocado? Ah ha! You’ll have to read the book to find out, but avocados are quite important in Lilou’s life!
I must confess that I have never worked harder on a writing project, sometimes typing through the night. It was an honour to help this unique young woman, however, and I believe that it will all be worthwhile. That is, of course, up to you to judge, when you read the book, but I think few people will be left unmoved. Lilou is not afraid to talk about her doubts and fears, which makes the overall message so much more credible and powerful.
I LOST MY JOB AND I LIKED IT: 30-Day Law-of-Attraction Diary of a Dream Job Seeker is now available for pre-ordering on Amazon.com, and will soon be available on Amazon.co.uk (possibly under a different ISBN) and on Lilou Mace’s createspace page. If you search “Lilou Mace” on Amazon.com, you’ll also find a range of meditation mp3s.
If you’ve just lost a job, or you’re looking for a better one, this is the book for you. If you are open to trying a completely different approach to life, this is the book for you. Whether you believe in the underlying philosophy or not, I am convinced that if you are willing to give Lilou’s approach a try you can only make your life “juicier”, as she would say. Happy reading!
P.S. I’m not the only one who recognises the merit of Lilou’s ideas. As you can see (above) Lewis Gordon Pugh (environmentalist, explorer and swimmer) and Jerome Touze (Co-CEO of WAYN), who both feature in the book (along with Oprah Winfrey and other luminaries!), have given Lilou quotes for the book jacket!
