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 wt_bobproctor14NOT 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!

Reflections on 2016: A Year of Building

Reflections on 2016: A Year of Building

Although I’ve been a student of the Law of Attraction for decades (since my oldest brother introduced me to Tony Robbins in the early 90s), over the past year I’ve had the opportunity to study and apply it continuously, thanks to Tasha Chen and the Science of Getting Rich Academy.

Putting these principles into practice takes focused effort and unwavering faith in the process — a daunting task for any human being, especially since most of us have been raised with negative messages about money. This unhelpful programming has been embedded in our subconscious minds, which in turn, constantly remind us that acquiring wealth requires slavish hard work and/or is nearly impossible (only the “lucky ones” do, after all); the love of money is evil; and being poor is somehow virtuous.

A typical Florida sight: an egret crosses my path during my walk.

A typical Florida sight: an egret crosses my path during my walk.

In my case, positive messages about success and wealth at home contrasted sharply with those received throughout my Catholic schooling. I didn’t fully appreciate the origins of these conflicts until I had the chance to work with Tasha, both one-on-one, and within the fabulous community of like-minded people she has created.

For the most part, I’ve spent this past year acknowledging and releasing old thought patterns, forgiving those who helped to instill them, and remaining firm in BE-ing and Living in the Certain Way.

Through these daily, minute-by-minute efforts, I met author and entrepreneur William Todd, whose book The Mentor in Me, will be published soon by Writestream Publishing.  I sought out an affiliation with the incredible book publicist Michelle Kulp for Writestream Publishing — which became a reality this past summer. These are just two of the inspired actions I took, thanks to Tasha’s guidance.

Last week, I attended my first Women’s Prosperity Network, where I met even more like-minded people and won a raffle prize.

She is known as the “Visionary with Guts” for her persistence in going for her goals and dreams despite apparent obstacles or challenges and works with individuals and organizations to support them in achieving stellar results. As co-founder of Women’s Prosperity Network (along with her two sisters), Nancy’s leadership creates the space for women (and men) to embrace and step into higher levels of self-mastery and professional development. Since 2008 Women’s Prosperity Network has served thousands of people, through workshops, conferences and mastermind events and the weekly “Wow Wednedsay” teleclass that features today’s thought leaders and experts. She is the author of The One Philosophy, Visionaries with Guts, the highly acclaimed Receiving Your Riches Course and the Best Selling Series, Journey to the Stage. Nancy has been featured on NBC, BraveheartWomenTV, The John Tesh Radio Network and has shared the stage with some of today’s leading experts such as Jack Canfield, Seth Godin, Sharon Lechter, Loral Langemeier, Kevin Harrington, John Maxwell and Bob Burg.

The Melbourne Causeway, one of my favorite sites in my own backyard.

If you haven’t read Nancy Matthews’ powerful book, I highly recommend it. It is filled with practical wisdom and simple exercises you can do right now to change your mindset and your life. One of them involves a daily practice of gratitude ~ something I’ve done for many years, but thanks to Tasha, much more consistently throughout 2016.

While my physical manifestations have not yet materialized, I know and trust they are on their way. And when the old thought patterns threaten my faith in the creative process, giving thanks for what is already here is one simple, effective way to stand firm on principle.

This past Saturday is an example. I spent several hours walking in nature to appreciate what’s already all around me and to keep my mind saturated in gratefulness, versus guilt. Countless people this year have been incredibly good to me. They know who they are and I hope they know how much I appreciate them. One in particular comes to mind because she has gone above and beyond what anyone could have reasonably expected under the circumstances (which I’ll not divulge here). I’ve expressed my gratitude to her verbally and I certainly hope she recognizes herself in this blog post.

Rather than wallowing in guilt, I am choosing to channel my genuine thankfulness into resolute adherence to the principles outlined in the Science of Getting Rich. It’s the best way to prove their validity and vindicate her trust in me as the co-creator of my healthy, wealthy, abundant-in-every-good-way life.

What are you grateful for in your life? Who do you thank God for?

Keep a journal. Write it all down, every single day. Take nothing for granted, but give thanks for every good thing, no matter what else appears to be going wrong. By keeping your mind focused on the good that already exists, you will open the channels for even better events, circumstances and people to enter your life. Focusing on gratitude puts you in a high vibration, which in turn, attracts greater abundance and more reasons for you to feel thankful – a wonderful, scientific fact and self-fulfilling prophecy.

As for me, I am grateful for the countless opportunities I attracted in 2016 and look forward to the miracles and blessings sure to come in 2017. I am grateful for the people who have supported me in various ways in this past year and cannot wait to vindicate their faith in me in the New Year.

To all of them and to God, I say with unbridled enthusiasm and joy: thank you, thank you, thank you!

Writestream Tuesday: William Todd Interviews Julie Tara

It’s the first Tuesday of the month, so entrepreneur and author of the forthcoming book, The Mentor In Me, William Todd, is hosting Writestream on September 6 at 1 PM Eastern. Tune in to listen to his interview with highly accomplished guest Julie Tara, a former ballerina, energy practitioner, entrepreneur with Nikken International, and author of the poetry book, Songs of Gaia:

Entrepreneur and author Julie Tara.

Entrepreneur and author Julie Tara.

Julie has an eclectic, creative background in the Performing Arts, Energy Medicine, Entrepreneurship and Creative Writing. She started training for Ballet at three-years-old, performing in England by the age of seven. She left home to live and study to become a ballerina at the highly prestigious Royal Ballet School from 10 to 15; continuing her training at the Royal Ballet Upper School for three more years. While she was a student, Julie danced with the Royal Ballet Company and the Royal Opera. She then joined Dutch National Ballet in Holland.

A few years later, Julie expanded her range in the performing arts through joining a traveling circus, as a dancer, in Mexico. This famous circus, “Cirque D’Italia”, was somewhat similar in style to a smaller version of Cirque de Soleil. Then Julie changed her career course to follow an inner calling to heal, beginning her training in Energy Medicine and Nutrition with Macrobiotics at 23. Over subsequent years, she has trained in Hands on Healing, Shiatsu, Crystals, Therapeutic Touch, Polarity, Shamanism, Creative Visualization, Magnetic Therapy, Psyche-K, and other modalities.

She has been a passionate advocate of Natural Healing for over 36 years at this point, first with her private healing practice, and then teaching and training thousands how to empower themselves with preventative measures. She brought up her 3 children with Macrobiotic and other Asian principles, teaching them how to live in concert with the Laws of the Universe, in order to not only maintain health, but to truly thrive on all levels.

She was one of four founders who owned and ran a 15-acre Healing Center in Estes Park, “Nova Institute,” that included Healing Retreat Programs, a 5-Star Organic Food Restaurant, Conference Centre and many Cabins. She taught Yoga and 5 Rhythms Dance and was the Director of the Arts and Healing Program. People attended the programs from all over the world.

Julie started her global work as an Entrepreneur with the Japanese Health and Wellness company Nikken in 1995. She was the fastest woman to reach the top rank of Royal Diamond in just under four years, and loves building a team of passionate individuals who are on a mission to help others transform their lives with the 5 Pillars of Health philosophy: Healthy Mind, Body, Family, Society and Finances. Her greatest joy is creating a healing ministry with others throughout the world.

WT_Julie Tara Book CoverJulie lives in Boulder, Colorado and has been a writer for many years. Her first book of poetry: Songs of Gaia ~ Devotional Poems to Nourish the Heart was published in 2015. She is now working on her second book about Spirituality and Money, called “Mystic in the Marketplace” which will be published in 2017. She is an avid Yogini and Pilates student, and continues dancing through life to the music of her heart song.

Spiritual awakening has been Julie Tara’s lifelong passion, both for herself and others. She has sought the divine spark through creativity – in her professional ballet career, in music, holistic healing, and in the transformative beauty of our natural world.

As a spiritual entrepreneur she is trusted and revered by thousands around the world for her inspirational presentations on reestablishing harmony with the laws of the universe. She dedicates her life to opening portals of consciousness, empowering us to achieve vibrant health and wholeness.

Her mystical poetry in Songs of Gaia celebrates the natural beauty, love and light that exists within each of us, pointing the way to our deep inter-connectedness. Her words open a new lens on the magic that lies at the center of all things.
