Sandy Gerber is a multiple award-winning author, communications and marketing strategist, and TEDx speaker. As CEO of NEXT Marketing Agency, she set a new standard for innovative communications, growing the company from her bedroom into one of the Top 100 Fastest Growing Companies in British Columbia. She’s been named 2022 Bronze Medalist Independent Publishers Book Award Winner (IPPYs), Businessperson of the Year, Mompreneur of the Year, and a YWCA’s Women of Distinction Finalist. This book is her passion project. She wrote pieces of this book during her evenings and weekends for almost 10 years.
Could you please tell us readers about your book and what inspired you to write your book?
This book took me almost 10 years to write (seriously). My journey discovering and creating the Emotional Magnetism communication technique spanned a decade and it was a rollercoaster ride! I’m amazed and grateful every day for the lessons this journey has taught me. My discovery began with a burning desire to evaluate my pattern of failed personal relationships. I had two failed marriages and was raising my two children as a single mompreneur. I knew in my heart, I needed to do work to understand my motivations and needs for a successful, loving relationship. My insatiable curiosity led me to a decade of study, the incredible results I received from the skills and techniques I learned, an extraordinary love story, and fueled my passion to teach others how to easily improve their communication in their relationships.
What would your advice be for aspiring writers?
If you have a story you are passionate about sharing, write it. Carve out time in your schedule to do it piece by piece, even if it is for just ten minutes a day after the kids are in bed or before you go to work. Keep reminding yourself why you are writing it and why people nee dot read it. This will motivate you on the tough days to keep writing. Once you have your story expressed, then get some help to edit it so it is the best version of your story possible.
In your opinion, what is the most important thing about your book?
The most important thing about the book is that it helps you to understand yourself (what you emotionally need to be happy), includes an easy quiz to find your primary emotional need (1 of 4 Emotional Magnets) and what exactly is blocking your current communication in your relationships.
When did you first decide to become an author?
Since I was a kid, I knew there was a book in me. I love words and the power of storytelling. I knew my book would be non-fiction and would help people, it just had to find me.
Is this the first book you’ve written?
Yes, this is the first “real” book I’ve written. Previously I wrote a little “booklet” called BRAND CHATTER, and contributed a chapter to a Mompreneurs collection book.
Do you read much and if so who are your favorite authors?
I love reading mostly non-fiction. I am an avid reader and find learning helps me to be more in awe of life and grateful.
I have many favourite authors and I share them on my reading list on my site – https://sandygerber.com/sandys-recommended-reading-list/
Lastly, when can we readers expect to read more wonderful books from you?
People who have read Emotional Magnetism have asked me to write a version to use in schools. I like this idea and think we should be taught communication skills at a young age.
I am also working on a version of Emotional Magnetism for the workplace.
