Video Shoot for Cindy Clemens

There is no greater blessing than the gift of being able to work with people you truly love and admire.  That's why I was so excited when Life Coach Cindy Clemens invited me to shoot and edit a video for her website The video shoot was held on a beautiful Saturday morning at Red Mountain Spa. A number of women showed up to learn more about Cindy's Recipe for Joy. The Joy workshop is one of Cindy's newest classes from her Injoy Life program. Split into three sections, the program helps people to Return to Joy, Live from Joy and Launch with Joy.  To that end, Cindy had participants at the Saturday workshop craft their own pink Joy boxes in which to store their hopes, dreams and joys! To help people learn more about the Injoy Program, Cindy offers a number of complimentary tools:  In addition, Cindy offers a free newsletter loaded with great links to sites that promote joy and welln

My Review of The Survivors Club by Lisa Gardner

They say you get what you pay for, and in the case of The Survivors Club by Lisa Gardner, this is certainly true. I picked up this work as an audiobook from a garage sale. I only paid a couple of bucks for this, and that was all it was worth to me personally, though many would disagree. In all fairness, “slasher books” really aren't my thing. In doing some research on the author, Lisa Gardner, I discovered she is a New York Times Bestselling Author The Survivors Club is about three women who have lived through violent episodes with the so-called College Hill rapist. The subject matter was disturbing at best, but I definitely knew what I was in for in reading the synopsis on the back of the audiobook. That being said, Gardner did do a great job in throwing in some unexpe

Happy Chinese New Year!

If you were lax in beginning your 2016 New Year's Resolutions, you're getting another chance to make them happen as the Chinese New Year kicks off today. The Chinese New Year is characterized by one of 12 animals which appear in their zodiac. 2016 is the Year of the Monkey. The Monkey is the ninth animal in the Chinese zodiac. People born under this sign are described as being quick-witted, curious and mischievous. The lucky numbers for those born under the sign of the Monkey are 1, 7, and 8. The colors associated with this sign are white, gold and blue which should make for an interesting discussion for those still debating the colored dress which some see as white and gold and others see as blue and black. Famous people born under the Sign of the Monkey include Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus, Nick Jonas, Cuba Gooding Junior, Mick Jagger, Halle Berry and Owen Wilson. While the Sign of the Monkey is considered to be the most unlucky symbol in the Ch

A Review of The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles

The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles is a well known work recommended by many self-help and motivational writers I listened to this in audiobook format, narrated by Eliza Foss While I enjoyed Foss's narration on The Mermaid Chair by Sue Monk Kidd, her voice and style did not work for me in The Science of Getting Rich . In fact, not much worked for me at all with this project. As an audiobook writer and producer, I rarely ever write a bad review, choosing instead to stay silent on presentations that I don't care for. I'll make an exception here, with the caveat that I recognize both the writer and the narrator likely gave this work 100 percent of their effort. My reasons for writing a less than glowing review are due to the fact that this work is t
