Be part of our new book!


Sometimes, the idea is right and the timing is wrong. In 2009, I started a book about people who have climbed the ladder of life and succeeded despite some of the most challenging circumstances. The response I got was amazing. The response that still hangs in my mind is John Paul DeJoria. You would be stunned by the environment he rose out of to become not only one of the most well-known names in hair products, but also the co-founder of The Patron Spirits Company.

Now, the time is right and I have started putting the word out. This book will happen.

Here’s what I’m looking for:

  • Celebrities
  • Business Owners
  • Every Day People

These people have risen out of stunning situations and have beat extraordinary odds to reach the top of their game (whatever that game may be).

If that sounds like you, please, email me personally. Tell me your story. This will be the first in a series of inspirational, functionally useful, books based on real life stories. Your story will be told and a What Works Coaching practice will be applied to it. I’ll also be creating a supplemental workbook to go along with it.

Here’s my production timeline:

  • Gather and sort stories: June/July 2014
  • Notify and gain permission/releases from participants: August 2014
  • Write the book: September/October 2014
  • Gain page approvals from participants: October/November 2014
  • Finalize and release the book: December 2014

Its a tight schedule, but I’m excited to make it happen. The workbook will be released either in conjunction with the book or a few months later.

Again, if you want to be part of this or are a publicist with a client you feel would be a great fit, please, email me personally.

To your ongoing success,
