This beautiful story drew me in from the moment I began reading. Written in the first person, its tone is at once hopeful, joyful, inquisitive, and thoughtful. Blessed with a supernatural ability to communicate with angels, the main character Anita Lyn Riley struggles to reconcile the mundane aspects of her life — from high school bullies to adolescent crushes — with the knowledge that evil exists everywhere, not just in some far away places.
On a personal level, she knows what it feels like to be misunderstood and feared for being different. When we first meet Anita, she is adapting to her new public high school, having upset the religious sensibilities of the priests and nuns at her former Catholic institution with her tales of reincarnation and otherworldly visions. As the book unfolds, her journey becomes progressively more difficult as circumstances force her to take courageous stands for justice, spurred on by righteous anger.
Filled with endearing characters and thought-provoking insights, Soul Mates & Angels celebrates the unbreakable bond that exists between all humans as children of God, the power of good to overcome evil, and the unseen realm where angels and loved ones are always there to help us.
From humble beginnings to celebrated entrepreneur and successful business coach, William Todd is one of the few to be personally mentored by one of the masters of personal and business development, Bob Proctor. The Mentor in Me chronicles a journey many of us can relate to — been given the tools and guidance to achieve success and then only sometimes following through on the wisdom offered. The book documents the time when William used The Seven Levels of Awareness to unlock doors and change paradigms and the times when, to his detriment, he failed to make the most of opportunities presented. Until he understood why he was not achieving long-lasting success, he was doomed to failure. The Mentor in Me offers a rare opportunity to watch as Bob Proctor mentors William through the peaks and valleys (ditches) of entrepreneurship towards a life of seemingly effortless abundance. The Mentor in Me is not just for entrepreneurs, however. It is for corporate professionals, students, parents and grandparents, educators, and budding entrepreneurs alike.
“The Mentor in Me is not a book you pick up and read. It’s a book you form a relationship with and you will want to study it daily for the rest of your life.” — Bob Proctor
William Todd is a self-made entrepreneur with over twenty years of expertise in the direct selling and personal development industries and a lifetime of experience in business startups. William is a protégé of Bob Proctor who was featured in the global phenomenon movie The Secret and is widely regarded as one of the pioneer masters and teachers of The Law of Attraction.
Change is inevitable. Those three words are under, in, and around everything my mentor has believed in and taught for over fifty years. Bob Proctor is the ‘last man standing’ in many ways. He is a teacher, a motivator, a speaker, and an author. He is a Master.
Bob’s hero and mentor, Earl Nightingale, was one of the giants in the self-improvement movement. Beginning with the teachings of Thomas Troward, Emerson, and the genius of William James, these mentor/guides made the change that is inevitable into something we could manage — something that could catapult us into a much more meaningful and successful reality. They held onto the truth until it became their character, their life’s work as a mentor. These giants brought about a vast shift in the way we think, the way we see the world, ourselves, and others. We (you and I) are the custodians of the lessons and the legacies these mentors laid down. Their lessons are the source of this book.
After twenty years of being mentored by a legend, and after a lifetime of wild successes often followed by dismal failures, William has discovered the key to that formula. William continues his mission of inspiring people to discover a new way of life through recognizing and sustaining the Five Key Areas of Health and Wealth — Healthy Mind, Body, Family, Community, and Finances.
William has personally mentored thousands of entrepreneurs, corporate leaders, and individuals from every walk of life in over twenty countries around the world. He is the author of the The Mentor In Me, WHAT TO DO, WHAT NOT TO DO. The book contains lessons offered from his mentor, Bob Proctor and lessons learned from William’s entrepreneurial and personal experiences. It highlights a story that is familiar to most people—being given incredible insight and guidance, but not always choosing to listen to it. The Mentor In Me follows the roller-coaster ride of what happens when you accept counsel from a mentor and the consequences for not. The book offers a solution for getting off the roller- coaster.
After discovering that mentors could help him achieve his goals in less time than it would take him to figure it all on his own, William created a 21-Day Coaching Program to help people of all ages and demographics (young adults, corporate executives, stay-at-home parents, retirees, and budding entrepreneurs alike) gain a higher level of awareness and improve their results in every area of their life.
William takes a unique and efficient approach to coaching by helping individuals unlock their potential through a process of eliminating old paradigms and habits. Reaching our true potential requires a formula of disciplined repetitive learning just as a gym membership requires self- discipline and repetitive workouts for optimal physical health.
Received this wonderful feedback via email yesterday from a reader after returning from my interview with John Ricciutti of Radnor Studio 21. No matter how many times someone reaches out with positive things to say about Water Signs: A Story of Love and Renewal, I still get the same feeling of exhilaration and accomplishment. Once upon a time, publishing a novel seemed like an unattainable dream. Then the internet and advanced technology came along and made it all possible. I’m grateful for the many doors this novel has opened for me, including becoming the co-founder of Writestream Publishing and Writestream Radio Network. Thank you to all who have supported me in my endeavors!
I bought your book (Water Signs) and I am half way done. I cannot believe all of the similarities to my life in Pennsylvania.
-I previously worked in Wayne, PA on Swedesboro Road and Devon
-I used to rent houses in Sea Isle City and my kids go down to
Ocean City every year with their families.
-My husband used to work at the Power Plant in Eddystone for
-My sister’s name is Monica and I call her Moni.
-Two of my sons live in Media – one on one side of Linvilla
Orchards and the other on the other side.
-We are still Phillies and Eagle fans.
-I bowled at the Showboat Casino many moons ago.
-I love Wawa and wish they had them here in Arizona. If you live near a Wawa you are going there at least once a day.
-Three of my kids graduated from Cardinal O’Hara High School.
The lists just goes on and on. I can’t wait to finish the book. You are a wonderful author. You keep me wanting more!
I spent a fabulous day with my good friend and business partner Lisa Tarves and our lovely client Cynthia Dougherty yesterday. Since we usually work and live in different parts of the country, it was a blessing to have this time together in person — especially with the exciting events happening at Writestream Publishing. Our boutique independent publishing company is growing steadily and surely, with ten titles published over the past year and many more to come before 2016 is over.
Proud of this second edition!
Among other things, we filled in for vacationing host Donna Lyons on Love Liberty & Lip Gloss. Even though we didn’t figure out Facebook Live, it turned out to be an excellent broadcast. If you missed it, click below to meet our new Monday host Cynthia Dougherty, learn about our revised publishing packages and partnerships, and discover all of the wonderful things taking place at Writestream Publishing and Writestream Radio:
From the time I could talk, I’d tell everyone who’d ask “What are you going to do when you grow up?” that I was going to be a novelist, a journalist, and a writer. It feels amazing to finally achieve those early goals, but I could never have known back then that the internet and 21st Century technology would enable me to become a publisher too. The fact that I get to do this with a woman who is an amazing friend and someone I can trust implicitly is the icing on the cake. For several years, I did all of the things I do for Writestream on my own…and I’ve discovered it’s much more rewarding and fulfilling as a partnership with Lisa.
