Q & A With Felena Hanson

There are many books out there about….What makes yours different?
Yes, there are many “how to launch a business” books on the market but mine is unique for several reasons
  1. It has relatable stories of women who have come through challenging situations to make their dreams a reality
  2. It gives the reader a step-by-step action plan to bring business to life.  It’s inspiration, tools, and education all rolled into one.

What are some of the signs that someone may be ready to become and entrepreneur?
1. You feel stuck. You've hit a wall and are no longer fulfilled by your job.
2. The light bulb came on and stayed on. One day you're in your kitchen, or more likely the shower, and you conjure up an unmet need. You keep working it over in your mind and even start obsessing about it. You can't let it go!
3. You’re passionate. It's not just a good idea; it's what you feel you were put on this earth to do! You start to tell everyone you know—even your mother-in-law! You want to build your dream!
4. You’re independent. You would rather blaze your own trail rather than following the herd. You've always been the girl that zigged when others zagged.
5. You’re motivated. You're willing to work nights and weekends on your idea.
6. You're disciplined. You're the one who follows through with your New Year’s resolutions through 12/31.
7. You’re organized. You color code your calendar - every color has meaning!


What’s the most courageous thing you’ve ever done?
License my business model internationally - www.HeraHub.com/Expansion
I wanted to build something that was bigger than myself.  In my prior business (doing marketing strategy consulting for small businesses) I was trading time for dollars.  It’s the classic “eMyth” scenario (book by Michael Gerber).  My goal is to support over 20,000 women in the launch and growth of their business. We’re doing this by connecting with amazing women throughout the world who want to use our model to build their own business and a strong platform for female entrepreneurship in their city.

Any hobbies? or Name a quirky thing you like to do.
Other than running my business I love drinking strong black coffee, running with my two dogs, and sipping a good Malbec (typically in that order).  I also LOVE to travel.  Thus far I’ve been to 23 countries and have another 50 on my bucket list.

What was the process of writing your book?
The book has three distinctive sections
  1. My story and journey to entrepreneurship
  2. Advice from six women and short stories of the “lean out moment” for an additional dozen women
  3. A practical step by step process to launch a business

For section one I started with filming my life story via eight hours of video.  I then had that transcribed and worked with a book coach to help me turn the timeline into a story.  This process took almost a year because I only had a few days per month to write.

The second part of the book was mostly coordination and interviews, which I had my book coach assist me with.  I wanted to be sure to bring in other perspectives and tangible examples.

The final part of the book is backed up by an online platform, which is a 17 step process to launch a business.  This I also back up with video content and significant online resources.  This was also took me about a year to compile and build.  Again, I had help.

I couldn’t have completed the book without significant support from the Hera Hub community… it takes a village to raise a book!

GDEALER Solar Rope Lights 49ft 150 LED IP65 Waterproof Copper Wire




Super nice light set. I love that these rope lights are not real thick like a lot of rope lights. They are not heavy either. Most rope lights are thick and heavy and really kind of hard to use if you want to hang them. You have to put screws or hooks and either tight them up or hook them up. Either way those are lightweight and hang easily. These also have the copper strand inside of them so they bend and twist easily in whatever direction you want them. These are great for outdoor. They are solar. They are 49 feet long. They have 150 warm white lights inside. I love solar. No extension cords, no remembering to turn them off and on either. These do come with a ground mounting stake. The head on the stake is adjustable so you can point the solar box in the direction that will get the most sunlight during the day. These will run about 8 to 12 hours during the evening on a full charge. These do have 2 modes steady on and flashing. I love these lights and they will great as part of my Christmas decorations as well as every day use.

Infinilla 4-Outlet Surge Protector Power Strip with 4-port Smart USB Charging Station 6ft Cord




Finally a Surge protector with enough room for all of my electronics. There are 4 outlets and 4 USB plugs on this surge protector. There is a separate power supply for both types of plug ins and you can turn them off an on with a small switch on the top. There is no reason to have power running to the USB ports if nothing is plugged in, so I can just flip the switch. This is rather small and very lightweight, perfect for taking on the go. It will be going on all my vacations and weekend getaways. Motel rooms never have enough plug in, you are usually lucky to find one or 2 plug ins in a room with out a lamp or something plugged in. Now I can carry a total of 8 plugs with me and only need a single outlet. Also not knowing how good the electricity is in a motel room I can protect my devices with this surge protector. Infinilla even tosses in a 3.3 foot USB  cord. This has a dual lightening Micro USB end on it so you charge whatever where ever.

Hydracentials Neoprene Bottle Holder With Adjustable, Detachable Strap





My husband and I do a lot of walking. We walk every evening after dinner. We take weekend trips to walk around historical locations, and stuff like that. We live in Florida and it is pretty much always hot. Staying hydrated is very important. I personally do not like drinks once they are warm and I always have a drink with me. With this awesome bottle holder from Hydracentials I can carry my water bottles with me and the neoprene holder helps to keep the drinks cold longer . Neoprene has a smell to it when you first receive it, it is just the way it is. Usually you can tell what it in the package before you open it from the smell. This water bottle holder all though it did have a smell to it, it was not over powering like other neoprene items I have received. I did run this through the wash machine before I used it and it pretty much took all of the smell away. This comes with a long adjustable shoulder/neck strap. The strap is long enough to carry on your shoulder, wear around your neck and even wear cross body style. The strap is also removable. The bottle holder itself is waterproof so when my water bottles starts to drip it all stays inside of the holder instead of dripping all over me. There really is nothing I don't like about this water bottle holder. The best part, I have my water and I am hands free.

Book Description:

Rejected by heaven, twisted by hell, what’s a damned dead man to do when he stumbles upon a life and love worth fighting for?

Though damned for his earthly sins, Darsorin Incarri likes being an incubus. Prowling women’s dreams to siphon off their sexual energy for Satan's consumption has its perks: an array of infernal power and a modicum of freedom. Sure, Ole Scratch holds Dar’s soul in thrall, and Dar has to spend a few hours recharging in Hell every day, but it could be much worse. All he has to do is hold up his end of his damnation contract – five women seduced, satisfied and siphoned per night for eternity. So when he encounters gorgeous, bright, and funny Fiona Renee, it’s business as usual. Deploy the infernal charm and rack up another score. Except it doesn’t work. She’s immune. He has to find out what’s gone wrong or face Lucifer's wrath.

Fiona Renee has the life she’d always wanted: a career, a home, a cat with a bad attitude, and peace. Fiona’s dated. Had boyfriends. And hated every minute of it. She’s reconciled to being lonely. So when a man shows up in her bedroom in the middle of the night demanding to know why her dreams turn to nightmares every time he tries to seduce her from within them, Fiona winds up negotiating a contract with a demon that allows him access to her life. She never anticipated that it would also give him access to her heart. If she's going to fall in love at all, something she never thought would happen, shouldn’t it be with someone who’s alive? If Fiona wants to hang on to Darsorin, she has to find his true name—the one he’d been given at his birth over a thousand years ago. But Satan, himself, stands in her way. Even if Fiona can dodge Lucifer, she and Darsorin have to face the question neither of them can answer: What happens to a dead man if you manage to wrest his soul from the Devil?

Excerpt:

The problem with being damned was that no one would meet your eye.
Darsorin Incarri squared his shoulders and glanced into the faces of the people passing him on the sidewalk. They'd look one another in the eye. Smile. Say, 'good morning.' But for someone whose soul had been claimed by the Devil? Nothing.
People would try. There’d be a split second of eye contact, then, as if the varied torments of Hell were somehow reflected in his eyes, their gazes would run away. Every time.
Shivering in the May sunshine, he shoved his clenched fists into the pockets of his black leather jacket. A single crumb of human warmth that wasn't infernally compelled, surely that shouldn’t be too much to ask. Even for a damned soul.
He pushed through the door of a tiny drug store around the corner from his office and trudged to the pharmacy in the back.
“May I help you?” The pharmacist wore her strawberry blonde hair pulled into a swinging ponytail. Her name tag said ‘Fiona.’ Glasses, thick jade frames and barely-there lenses, heightened the olive of her eyes and magnified the smoky eyeliner and shadow she wore. Lush, full lips, painted clear pink smiled at him.
She met his gaze firmly.
No flinching.
No hint of nervous energy.
He pulled in a slow breath. The woman of his dreams–dreams he didn’t know he had, because Hell has a way of grinding those right out of a damned soul–and here he was picking up itch cream for his boss.
“Prescription for Louis Sieffer.”
She turned away to leaf through the white prescription bags before turning back armed with one of them. “Here we go. Have you used this medication before?”
Her white coat washed out her pale complexion, but the lavender silk collar of her blouse, peeking from beneath the coat, caught his imagination. The silk must be worshipping the curves her abomination of a coat all but eradicated.
He sucked a breath in between clenched teeth as his body hardened. Game on. Another soul to seduce for Ole Scratch.
Without conscious thought, he hit her with sex magic. Marking her. Warning off rivals, and maybe, tipping her off, too, so they could both revel in the anticipation. Lust spiked all around him in the cramped, back corner of the drug store where three other women and one man, thin enough to blow away in a breeze, perched on hard plastic chairs, waiting for their prescriptions. He breathed it in, tasting, confused. None of it seemed to emanate from the young woman he held in his predatory crosshairs. She radiated friendly warmth, not insatiable desire like the rest of the females within ten feet of him–like she should.
He latched onto the desire surging around him. Three women. Three separate threads of want. All for the taking. Their want fed him, spilling into the empty space where his forfeited soul should have been. While he wanted the pharmacist, he’d been presented with a buffet of feminine sexual drive, he sampled the offerings. Longing was heady, addicting stuff. The unfulfilled yearning plunked into the dark well of him, tantalizing him with the sensation that he could be filled up, that he could feel almost human again. Briefly.
He smiled and sucked harder on the women’s dissatisfaction and burgeoning appetite.
“Mr. Sieffer? Sir, have you used this medication before?” the pharmacist repeated, her voice clear and alluring as a shot of the smoothest whiskey.
“For eternity,” he said. Why wasn’t she inarticulate with need?
Her smile fell and she leaned closer, lowering her voice. Captivated, he mirrored her until he could have pretended to lose his balance and have their lips meet over the middle of the counter. He caught the faintest hint of perfume. Rose and jasmine. Hunger he hadn’t experienced in centuries spiked his blood–different from his soul-bound compulsion to service as many women as possible in the name of Hell. This delectable morsel kindled the lecherous nature that had damned him in the first place. He could consume her. His mouth watered. He would.
Drunk with wanting her, he downed another shot of the unrequited desire he’d tapped from the other women.
“Certain STDs can be difficult to control, but this ointment should give you some relief from the pain and itch . . .”
Sympathy, cool, blessed sympathy, smacked him in the face like a dead fish. What she’d said–what she thought–registered. He jerked upright.
“It’s not for me!” he said. “I’m picking this up for a–friend.”
Her pink lips twitched.
Adorable. Kissable. Bitable.
“Believe me,” he said, vitally aware that his voice had dropped just like every ounce of blood in his body had. “This is better than the snake oil and wormwood he’s been using for the past thousand years.”
Oh, that didn’t sound weird. Or like he had a gay lover. He closed his eyes. Smooth, Incubus. Real smooth. What the hell had happened to his ironclad contract that assured he’d always be supernaturally sexy? Every woman’s dream?
