October 2020 Anthology

"Bright Spots: Motivation and Inspiration to Light Your Path in a Changing World"

 

“ . . . in a dark night, the eye begins to see” — e.e. cummings

 

The future holds the promise of a new beginning. As a force for good, you are here to make a positive impact as we begin to mold a new earth. You are the one who holds the magic — the magic-fairy sparkle-dust — that is so desperately needed right now to move out of transition into transformation.

You are here. Right now. On purpose. For a reason.

You are the one who sees the invisible soul, extends a hand, and knows how to reach into their heart to lift their spirit. You are the one we need NOW — to not only offer compassion, comfort, and consolation, but to also initiate dialogue, direction, and determination.

You are the light, the one who shines and lights the way for others. Yours is the light so desperately needed NOW — to reconnect communities, rebuild confidence, and repair broken dreams.

It is time for you to shine so that others may draw hope, strength, and courage from YOUR light, and learn to let their own light shine.

It is you. You have chosen to accept this mission . . . at this time . . . on this planet.

You are the Bright Spot.

Maximize Your Impact & Reduce Expenses Through Collaboration

TAKE A TIP-TOE INTO THE PUBLISHING POND.

An anthology is simply a collection of essays with a common theme, providing you the chance to be a published author — without the financial expense or time involved in writing an entire book on your own. Through the process of collaboration, more people learn about you and your unique offerings, at a greatly reduced price.

“Writing my chapter gave me the confidence to finish writing my own book!”

Attract More Clients, Help More People, and Monetize Your Passion

POSITION YOURSELF AS THE EXPERT. 

As a contributing author to the anthology, you’ll spread your message and share your unique offerings through your own individualized chapter, while you expand your “tribe” and inspire others.

“Promoting my book with the other authors gave me the opportunity to be introduced to all of THEIR contacts!”

Your business involves helping others and you are at the forefront of making things happen for the greater good.

PERFECT FOR EXPERTS, THOUGHT-LEADERS, AND INFLUENCERS — ESPECIALLY THE “HELPERS AND HEALERS”
