Your Whole Life Economy is a concept based upon seven key resources that we all have to offer the world: Time, Attention, Physicality, Money, Wisdom, Compassion, and Joy.
When you recognise the value of these precious resources, you will automatically become more discerning about how you distribute them and more conscious about how you consume. The result is a greater flow of positive energy, leading to a life of fulfilment.
There is nothing to add or achieve; this is a process of self-reflection based upon the principle that everything you need is already within you, right here and right now.
A book cover conveying the result of this work – positive flow of energy leading to a greater quality of life.
The theme is ‘self-reflective, everyday practical spirituality’. There is a strong link to nature and human interconnectivity that is apparent in the global economy.
I’m looking to produce a paperback book through Amazon CreateSpace. The format will be 8.5” x 5.5”. My book is around 24,000 words and I think this will result in 60-80 pages so it's going to have a thin spine of maybe 4-5mm.
I have attached some Word documents for inspiration, these include:
1) Some book covers that I like from my category and what I like about them.
2) Colour palette of my website and proposed homepage
3) Some images that I like which are copyright free and downloaded from Pixabay. Not attached to using them but if you felt they would work in your design then I could provide them.
On my website, I am using a theme of 'exploration and discovery'. I am using gemstones to indicate the ‘precious resources’ aspect of Your Whole Life Economy. NB: AFTER SEEING SOME DESIGNS WITH THIS CONCEPT, IT FEELS TOO ABSTRACT. I'D PREFER TO SEE DESIGNS MORE LINKED TO NATURE AND GLOBAL INTER-CONNECTIVITY.
Barcode/ISBN information will be provided at a later date, please use holding spaces for these.
I am looking for an ongoing relationship with a designer who will also format the inside of the book prior to publication. It would be ideal to work with a designer who connects with my message in order to create a long-term relationship.
Following this project, I would like to create graphics to represent each of the precious personal resources that I have identified so that I can use these in promotional material & presentations.
I have ideas for at least one other book and in the future would like to have my website professionally produced.
