For more than 20 years, my communication company represented businesses, artists, theatre companies, and non-profit organizations and helped them gain attention from various media in order to promote their businesses, product launches, theatre productions, and gala events. In my role as publicist, I invested in personal relationships with the members of the media (necessary), and these media professionals shared their frustration with me time and time again, about the quality of the information they receive in the form of poorly organized presentation, poor grammar, lacking coherence and clarity.
Much of my consulting in those years was to advise on simple and common (not so common) sense ways to avoid what is a major setback before you even begin. It is a stumbling block that can be easily avoided.
Back then, social media was in its infancy, whereas now it is second-by-second commonplac

Meet Joey Chandler. He's a purpose coach, video producer, photographer and soon to be author. His forthcoming book Not In My Lifetime, outlines his process for identifying one's purpose in just two questions and then how you can use your life purpose life to address various important areas of life.
He believes that by identifying one's purpose and expanding their ability to share and experience that purpose, one can accomplish whatever goals they decide to achieve; including those that are often accompanied by the caveat, "but that can't happen in my lifetime."
Identifying His Goal in This Lifetime
His book, Not In My Lifetime is based on his Know Your Purpose Program and the reason he's putting almost the entire program in a book is to satisfy his goal to end racism in his lifetime.
He figures racism (along with sexism, homophobia and other biases) simply gets in...
There’s NEVER been a better time to be an entrepreneur ~ or for aspiring and emerging authors, an "authorpreneur".
The opportunity and ability to go from random idea to a profitable business is easier and quicker than ever before.
And even more so for those of us who have Knowledge Commerce businesses, because we don’t need expensive inventory or additional real estate, but instead leverage our ability to serve clients around the world and sell course content, expertise, digital products and information.
According to a report released by REUTERS in June of last year, the already booming "E-Learning" industry is expected to reach a $275-Billion-dollar valuation within the next 4 years!
So if there ever was a time to launch your brand and online business teaching others what you know and love, that time is now. Seriously.
So what does a picture of a beach and a business have in common? They are both achievable by becoming an author, building your...

"I was blindsided. That’s probably the best way to describe how it felt, as a perfect storm of forces was brewing, never before experienced by any of us, and descended it’s wrath that day…and changed everything." - Linda Green, September 12, 2015.
Meet Linda Green, the forthcoming author of Solving the Post Traumatic Stress Brain Injury Puzzle: A First Responders' Discovery & Recovery Roadmap of Curiosity, Courage and Growth
Linda was the Incident Commander on the devastating Valley Fire, which destroyed almost 2000 structures as it burned across 76,000 acres in the CAL FIRE Sonoma-Lake-Napa Unit, and the heartbreak of lives lost. But in the months that followed this life-altering traumatic event she refers to as “her fire”, she knew something was very wrong, even though life seemed to be marching on as always...until it wasn’t....
"To be, or not to be, that is the question.." is the opening phrase of a soliloquy in the "Nunnery Scene" of William Shakespeare's play, Hamlet. This world famous quote asks a question, and I believe this question has a distinct answer, and it lies within you.
TO BE is a positive life force statement that allows us to complete it with our own “brand” of being, offering the world a glimpse into who we are, what we stand for (or against), the standards by which we guide ourselves and how we view the world.
Because...it really is...all about you.
You ARE your brand
Truth: You only get one chance to make a great first impression.
As a PR and promotional strategist for much of two decades of my business, the expression really is noteworthy. As a forthcoming author, you want to be incorporating these principles now, not when you publish your book. Here's a great article by Jennifer Maloney from Entrepreneur, 4 PR Strategies You Should Be Using...
Popularized by Napoleon Hill in his famous book Think and Grow Rich, a mastermind is a group of individuals who come together regularly (either in person or virtually) in order to discuss important personal or business issues and get new perspectives to help you get the results you want in your personal and professional life.
"The coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose, in the spirit of harmony." ~ Napoleon Hill

The Power of the Mastermind
Napoleon Hill said, “No mind is complete by itself. It needs contact and association with other minds to grow and expand.”
The proper use of a mastermind group is the cornerstone to all great achievement. On our own, we can only ever have a limited amount of experience. A mastermind group allows us to draw freely from the experience, training, skills, and knowledge of others who align with our...
Begin with the end in mind.
“You must imagine yourself right into the state of your fulfilled desire...the world which we describe from observation must be as we describe it relative to ourselves. Our imagination connects us with the state desired. But we must use imagination masterfully, not as an onlooker thinking of the end, but as a partaker thinking from the end. We must actually be there in imagination. If we do this, our subjective experience will be realized objectively. This is not mere fancy, but a truth you can prove by experience...the secret is thinking from the end. Every state is already there as “mere possibility” as long as you think of it, but is overpoweringly real when you think from it.” ~ Neville Goddard

Meet Shari Reinhart, author, manuscript consultant, ghostwriter and editor.
When Oprah chose her to read from her personal journals on a post-911 November 2001 Oprah Winfrey show about gratitude, that was all the validation Shari needed to start her freelance writing career.
Reading, writing, journaling and imagining outside the box of her traditional upbringing, Shari was born to work her way to higher states of being and connection with like-minded people.
Today, Shari works with aspiring and accomplished authors to put their experience, expertise and excellence out into the world. She does so by infusing all their knowledge with the heart, soul and sometimes vulnerability that people are eager to read these days.
Her pet peeve? When people say, “Hey, I need an editor, anyone know someone?” No! No! No! – never just hire an editor without understanding what editors do.
Editing is a broad a...
Happy Sunday everyone. I hope you enjoyed a SOUL-FULL day.
Sunday evening is a great time to tap into the feeling of living each day with a little more soul-full intention for the week ahead. It is said that when we know better, we do better, and by taking a few moments at the end (or beginning) of each week to review, reflect and refocus, we are using our thoughts mindfully to ensure we remain the captain of our own personal navigation system.
This week I was fortunate to meet an aspiring author who believes very much in his story. During our call, he expressed regret about the "time it has taken him" to get to this stage of development of his manuscript. This is such a common feeling to have when we have an expectation based on our own sense of time. We interpret a pressure from within, and give ourselves permission to believe the lie that somehow we've in some way procrastinated, or taken "too long" to write. I believe there is no such thing as...
