A Q&A with Mal Duane. Interviewed by D’Vorah Lansky, Best Selling Author and founder of Authors Marketing Circle.
D’Vorah: I would love to ask you about your book. I think our listeners would be quite interested in your journey, and the topic of your book.
Mal: D’vorah, the book is to teach women how to move away from the pain of the past, connect with their present, their authentic voice, and then create the life that they’re looking for in the future. I wrote this book and shared my own personal experience of transformation for women to read so that they know that I walk the walk and talk the talk, that it can be done. I’m just the girl next door, and I was able to do it, and I think through this message of the book, other women will be able to do it as well.
D’vorah: This is important work because so many women have to hide in fear, and they don’t know how to find their way through the maze to be able to find the power within them.
Mal: You’re absolutely right. In the past 23 years, I have met so many women in my journey that started to express that they were recognizing how unhappy they were in their lives. There’s a shift going on that women are just beginning to identify what’s missing, what’s not quite right with their lives. They are starting to see they’re really suffering. It may be for various reasons of addiction, a failed relationship, a lost job, a loss of a family member, but they’re starting to identify their suffering. The only thing is, they don’t know that they have a way out, a way to transform from that pain and tap into their power.
D’vorah: This opens a lot of questions for me. One of them is: “How can women access this information, and is that partly why you wrote this book?”
Mal: Yes. I discovered, in doing my own work and my own transformational process, my own recovery process – it became apparent to me that I was doing certain things over and over again. When I really started to look at the process that I had been using that was so successful in changing my life, I identified that there were – originally I thought there were seven steps – and then I realized there were truly five steps in this process of personal transformation. These five steps, interestingly enough, spell FAITH.
