I’m thrilled to say my book How to Get Anything You Want – Just Like That ! is a winner in the Reader Views 2011 Literary Awards:
2nd in the International Award Self-Help category – overall
1st in the Regional Award – Australia, New Zealand, Australasia
1st in a Specialized Award for Self-Improvement
The Specialized Award is sponsored by Jim Bouchard author of the book “Think Like a Black Belt”. The criteria for this award is as follows:
Self-published or published by small independent publisher – awarded to a non-fiction personal development/self-help book that is motivational, inspirational or functional presenting a story or system that encourages the cultivation of any or all of the following: self-confidence, discipline, focus, courage and respect.
The prize involves two $450 mentoring packages (one for the author and one as a giveaway for one of my fabulous readers – keep a look out here for that notification coming soon). Mentoring is an asset because it gives us (you and me) welcome feedback about ourselves and an opportunity for support in our endeavors. My prize also includes a featured review and segment on Jim Bouchard’s Think Like a Black Belt show.
How to Get Anything You Want – Just Like That ! teaches people how to reach their full potential, live life on their own terms and to have fun on their journey.

While some of us may need to read the same stuff over and over again, I have to admit that it is incredibly refreshing to get my hands on a book that I truly feel might be the only self help book that anyone could ever possibly need.” Paige Lovitt – Reader Views

Testimonials – What People are Saying
Janet Poole’s book took me on a journey I wasn’t expecting. It was a journey that enabled me to discover parts of myself I didn’t know existed. Her book gave me the courage to make a decision that has plagued me since 1985. And that is do I or don’t I take the plunge and publish my own children’s writing. Following her guidance in chapter five about challenges and the powerful opportunities they open up for you, I feel confident that I can achieve my goal of publishing my own work.
…Janet Poole’s book is not one that can be read once and put away. It is a reference for life that each additional reading will enhance the understanding of oneself and the world one exists in.”
