Hi, I'm Becky Norwood. Welcome to "The Woman I Love!" As an author, publisher, and business owner, I have not only told my own story of survival from childhood sexual, emotional and physical abuse, I also help others tell their stories as well. We do not owe our past a place in our future, and the key to finding our joy comes from loving and forgiving ourselves. Do you have a story to tell? Let me help you accomplish it!
Are You Ready to Tell Your Story?
Becky is available for speaking engagements and events, to share her story and offer helpful tips for moving from merely survival to THRIVING!

Becky Norwood: Turning Striving Authors Into Bonafide Bestsellers
Becky Norwood has provided a one-stop shop for would-be authors; a place where they can learn how to do it themselves, as well as get help in doing it.
“My ideal client is a business owner who wants to take their business way further than just working hard,” Norwood says. “They know there are things they can do to expand their reach and message, but they don’t know how to get there. They are, however, willing to learn and apply their knowledge into a work of heart.” This stepping stone to authorship starts with telling their signature story, the “why” behind the passion that led them to take part in their business. It becomes the showcase and launchpad to more books, products and, therefore, extra streams of revenue.
Her business, Spotlight on Your Business, breaks down into two main parts:
But how does one become an author in the first place? That’s where her training program, Journey to Authorship, comes into place. “Journey to Authorship is a sixteen-week-long live, interactive group training that helps people who know that they want to write a book, but have no clue where to start,” as Norwood explains it.
Very early on in the process, Becky gets her participants focused on marketing. “From the moment they make the commitment to write a book, they are encouraged to start blogging, building their social media, creating videos, learning how to podcast and building their list, well before their book is ready for publishing.”
This accomplishes two goals:
This is what sets the Norwood method apart — she not only teaches the importance of marketing, but has assembled the tools needed to make it happen.
“Your book is your calling card, and as a business owner, it’s really important to use that calling card in the right way,” Norwood says. Or perhaps you’re looking to create a lasting legacy. To those people, Norwood asks, “What do Norman Vincent Peale, Napoleon Hill, and Wayne Dyer have in common? They’re not here with us today, but their words will still impact people for many years to come.”
“In order to use your book as either a calling card or to leave a legacy, start now,” she urges. “With Journey to Authorship, we’ve got the tools and the resources to make this become a reality, and to empower you to do it for yourself. Spotlight on Your Business is full of all the resources and services that you’ll need to know for your journey, so you’re not going to be spending lots of time searching and trying to find out how to get this done. You’ll either be empowered to know how to do it yourself, or find high quality people who know how to do it for you.”
Becky’s desire to help others stems from her own journey as a business owner. “I have been self-employed all my life … I started working when I was eight.” But when the economy went under, so did her business. “To lose a business was unbelievable,” she remembers.
Right around that same time, social media was really becoming a big deal. Through this new lens, she saw two things: despair and opportunity. She saw many people just like her losing their businesses left and right. She felt their pain. But what she also saw was a way to not only help herself, but those other down-and-out business owners as well.
“The [tools] of the digital world we live in that are now available to either promote a book or business were amazing,” she says. “But I realized that a lot of business owners need to learn how to use them, and that’s what started it for me.”
