The Heroine's Journey Book Launch

Donation protected
Hi Friends and Family,

As many of you know, I have been working on this book for 10 years in the making. What many of you may not know is at one point I paid a publishing company to assist with its launch. After investing $25k in my book, that publisher went bankrupt and all the money previously invested was lost.

Fast forward, I've had tremendous help from gifted editors in my life recently and it's time to explore publishing my book once again, this time through the avenue of landing a book deal and TEDx stages to begin to develop my career as a keynote speaker and author on cultivating mature leadership through feminine consciousness.

I have many irons cast in the fire and feel very confident that my investment in this process will pay off, however, there are still some upfront costs to navigate.

I've put my heart and soul into the foundation of my business and am ready to take it to the next level. Bigger audiences = bigger impact!

Will you help me?

This step is less about personal gain and more about making an impact on the collective through empowering women and shifting leadership paradigms in a big way. I always said I would never go back to corporate unless it was to shift corporate culture and nows the time to act on my word more than ever.

But I need your help.

With your investment, I will be able to make a big impact on my mission in a big way: publishing my books, setting up my nonprofit for teenage mothers, and creating systems that will give back by furthering my career as a keynote speaker on sustainable leadership.

My calling has found me and if you believe in my purpose, any donation helps. Your money goes directly to implementing the systems to find the stages that will impact great change not only in my life but like a great ripple, in the lives of many others as well.

Together, let's get this book published, stages booked, and the nonprofit for teenage mothers started!
