Recommended Reading: The Mentor In Me

Due to Amazon’s strict review policy and the fact that I’m a co-founder of Writestream Publishing, the company that published William Todd’s book, I cannot post a review there. However, there’s nothing standing in the way of sharing my impressions on my own website.

First, a little background. I met William last year when I filled in for Love Liberty & Lip Gloss host Donna Lyons, who told me she’d scheduled an important guest and preferred not to inconvenience him by changing the date of their interview. Without even asking the name of the person in question, I agreed to substitute for her. I love hosting on the air and meeting new people; besides, whenever I can help out one of our hosts (especially Donna, whom I adore), it’s my pleasure.

That led to the interview posted here:

From there, I extended an invitation to William to host his own show the first Tuesday of every month, and to my delight, he accepted. Listen to his debut with Writestream Publishing author, Major General Linda L. Singh:

Our affiliation led to William selecting Writestream Publishing to release his excellent book, The Mentor In Me, on January 1, 2017. It may sound crazy, but when you read a book as an editor (focused on flow, grammar, typos, etc.) it’s quite different from reading it for education and enjoyment. So once the book was published and I had a paperback copy in my hands, I sat down to fully absorb its message.

William’s honesty in sharing his journey in such an engaging way makes you feel as if he’s a good friend. It also brings him down to earth: in spite of his amazing success as an entrepreneur, he still struggled with his own fears, negative thoughts, and embedded paradigms. Becoming Bob Proctor’s protege is a humbling experience, yet one he embraces fully — at least in the beginning. As suggested by the subtitle, What To Do & What Not To Do, William describes his resistance to taking his mentor’s advice, “the times when, to his detriment, he failed to make the most of opportunities presented.”

The book’s chapters are organized according to the Seven Levels of Awareness – the process we all undergo as life unfolds. William explains each level, supporting its premise with real life examples of how he demonstrated a particular behavior, for good or ill. Each chapter closes with his Mentor’s Message, What To Do / What Not To Do (questions to consider), and Words of Wisdom.

It’s organization and ease of reading, combined with the author’s genuine tone makes The Mentor In Me a practical guide for improving every aspect of your life and becoming the person you were meant to be. No wonder why Bob Proctor calls it “a book you form a relationship with.” It’s overall 5-star rating on Amazon is well-deserved.

Aside from this wonderful book, William has created an excellent, affordable 21 Day Coaching Series. Visit his website, www.TheMentorInMe.com for more information.

Four Years of Writestream Radio

Four Years of Writestream Radio

Thanks to LinkedIn, I received a reminder that Writestream Radio is now  four years old. Between out-of-state visitors and Writestream Publishing projects, I’d forgotten all about it. It’s hard to believe, but at the time I was freelancing as a ghostwriter, copywriter, content writer and blogger. I thought an internet radio network would help my clients (and other authors) become more comfortable with discussing their books.

After publishing the first edition of Water Signs in 2008, I soon discovered that people were as interested in me as they were in my novel — which surprised me a little. That’s when I realized how critical it was for indie authors to put themselves out there in cyberspace and real life. Having spent the previous four years co-hosting a political show, I saw firsthand the power of internet radio to connect authors with their audience. And since many authors I knew had an aversion to public speaking, it also provided a non-threatening forum to discuss their work since it’s off-camera. (Ah, the days before Facebook Live 😉 ).

With that in mind, I contacted Lisa Tarves and John Gresham to ask if they wanted their own shows on the network. After they happily accepted, we began airing the Sunday of the first week of March 2013 with Just Believe with Lisa Tarves.

Sadly, our friend John Gresham passed away in July of 2016, but his memory and voice live on in the form of multiple excellent Military Monday broadcasts, which can be accessed on our Blog Talk Radio Show Page.

Today, our network broadcasts a variety of unique, uplifting, and informative programming:

Just Believe with Ilene Gottlieb ~ The Heart Healer

The Mentor In Me on Writestream Radio

Create Your Life with Tasha Chen

Partners in Crime with Sue Coletta and Kimberly McGath

The Formula with Jefferson Keith Langley

Love Liberty & Lip Gloss with Donna Lyons

Speculative Fiction Cantina with S. Evan Townsend

Get Fit Feel Fabulous with Britt

 

After a several month hiatus, I’ll be back to weekly hosting on Wednesdays at 11 AM Eastern, beginning on April 5 with The Writestream with Daria Anne. Write. Publish. Succeed. And soon, Kris Kees will be hosting a weekly money/finance program, Kees to Invest. I’ll post more details as we get closer to his debut.

Thank you to all of our exceptional hosts and listeners. We appreciate you and look forward to many more years of top-notch broadcasting!

Happy New Year! The Mentor In Me Is Live on Amazon

Happy New Year! The Mentor In Me Is Live on Amazon

Just in time for 2017, The Mentor In Me by author William Todd is now live on Amazon. If you’re ready to make permanent, positive changes in your life, click on The Mentor In Me’s Amazon page to order your copy today:

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

About William Todd:

wt_mentorinme3William 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.

Lisa and I are thrilled to begin 2017 with the release of this exceptional book from Writestream Publishing!
