  • About Face: How Airway Dentistry Can Open Your Path to Healing and Wellbeing with Sheryl Pomerance

    90% of the population reaches adulthood with underdeveloped midfaces and lower jaws. This causes lots of crowding—the teeth, tongue, tonsils, and adenoids are crowded. The nasal septum deviates to one side or the other, ears get congested. The airway is restricted, and the body responds by shifting into the Sympathetic Nervous System. Living in low-level sympathetic mode erodes health. This can contribute to anxiety, headaches, low thyroid, ADHD/ADD symptoms, Obstructive Sleep Apnea, and many other common mental or physical health conditions.

    Dr. Pomerance was part of that 90%. In About Face, she shares her Airway Dentistry expertise regarding face size and health outcomes stemming from years of continuing education, her personal health struggles, and decades of clinical experience.

  • Building a Dream: The Persimmon Ridge Story with Lawren Just

    What would it take for you to make your dreams a reality?

    Most people have a vision of what they would like to do in their life or what they would like to be. For many, the reality is that we become what our circumstances allow, whether because of upbringing, schooling, life situations, or needing to earn a living. Few get to pursue their “dream” life, and sometimes those same life circumstances dictate that pursuit.

    Building a Dream: The Persimmon Ridge Story shows you that a pursuit of a dream is often not the “easy road” to take. Ultimately, though, if it is what your heart desires, the pursuit becomes your life. This book tells the story of the pursuit of a dream. In reading it, you will learn:

    • Going after a dream takes full dedication to it
    • Family and friends provide critical support and must understand the pursuit
    • Finances can sometimes present an issue
    • Risk is probable and must be accepted
    • Faith in yourself and those working with you is paramount

    Building a Dream shares all of the above and helps you to understand the pursuit is only half the challenge—the reality is the prize. Pursue your dreams!

    Thank you so much for getting me to completion on this book!  It is a great feeling of relief to have this story documented to pass on to future generations, homeowners, and golfers.

Throughout our time together, Cathy provided valuable insights, guidance and feedback.  She helped spark new ideas while keeping me focused on what we had set out to accomplish.
    I worked with Cathy on my debut book, Out of the Gate:  What inspires you drives you forward.  During that time, she was instrumental in shaping my storytelling writing style and author voice. We were able to build on those fundamentals during the VIP experience.  Her continued encouragement and support has taken my writing to new heights I couldn’t have reached alone.
    I wholeheartedly recommend Cathy to any author seeking a transformative and inspiring journey towards creating their best work.

  • Turning Intuition Into Science: Harnessing The Power Of Organizational Network Analysis with Deborah Peck

    Do you have people issues within your organization that never seem to improve, no matter how you address them?

    Maybe you know or have a sense of who is involved, what is happening, and even have an idea of how to resolve it. Organizational Network Analysis (ONA) helps you identify what is really happening and offers effective strategies for overcoming it. The people within your organization are speaking to you through their behavior, how they work with others, and what they naturally offer to your organization.

    In Turning Intuition Into Science, Deborah Peck will demonstrate to you how ONA can:

    • Help you diagnose the right issues at the heart of your people issues.
    • Give you a visual understanding and supporting metrics that confirm the analysis.
    • “Turn your intuition into science” by confirming it or finding other information to determine how work is really getting done, what is happening in the workplace, and its impact on the organization’s goals, objectives, or overall effectiveness.

    Turning Intuition Into Science provides you with the tools and information needed to start tackling those seemingly perennial problems. Wouldn’t you like to increase retention, engagement, productivity, communication, collaboration, and customer satisfaction to improve overall organizational effectiveness using solutions that stick? Find out how ONA can transform how your organization solves issues for the better!

    I was so happy to have someone who understood what I do with my work and could guide me on a journey that initially seemed unsurmountable. It wasn’t impossible with Cathy’s guidance, support and of course, awesome coaching techniques and ability. She has written many books herself, so she shares information that she knows works. She got me through the tough times – and there were many! She helped me find a writing style that suited me and writing became easier. Thank you Cathy!

It brings the successful teachings of a private coaching program to a broader audience by guiding the reader through relatable examples and thought-provoking discussions and questions.

    ● Are you ready to stop reacting to life and take control?
    ● Do you find yourself in the same loop over and over?
    ● Are you afraid of failing, or that you are trying to reach standards that are not your own?
    ● Do you feel like who you really are and what you do just don’t align?
    ● Are you all-in in one area of life, but faltering in other areas?

    If you said “yes” to any of those, “Feeling Stuck?” will guide you through the 10 Tenets of Mindset Transformation necessary for personal empowerment so you can create the life you love.

    Cathy did an excellent job of hearing my vision, then helping me mold it into a comprehensive book and downloadable companion workbook. She guided me and held me accountable while also making quality suggestions about book length readability. Cathy’s suggestion that I pull out many of the interactive questions from my book to become a downloadable companion workbook made the main book a reasonable length, and created a draw to my website to grow my list.

    I appreciate that Cathy helped me to see the larger picture.

  • The Color of Emotional Intelligence with Farah Harris

    It takes strength not to curse someone out when they’re being rude, or not to lose it when your child is being disobedient. It is also emotionally taxing to keep it all together when you are on the receiving end of a microaggression.

    Each of these instances requires us to use our emotional intelligence (or EQ). And, while it is a basic skill, there are more shades to emotional intelligence than you might think. Emotional intelligence can also be used to break barriers to equity.

    In The Color of Emotional Intelligence, psychotherapist and well-being expert Farah Harris uses personal stories, anecdotes, and insight to discuss:

    • The fundamentals of emotional intelligence and barriers to practicing EQ effectively
    • How emotional intelligence is used as a survival skill by marginalized people
    • Different types of stressors, including microaggressions, and resulting unhealthy defensive tactics, such as code-switching and masking
    • Self-care strategies for handling systemic stressors that affect people from marginalized groups
    • Tools everyone can use to elevate their emotional intelligence to address inequities and become better stewards of humanity

    Don’t go through life seeing things in black and white. It’s time to see the world in color.

    Working with Cathy was like having a coach, mom, and cheerleader all in one! She provided great insight, encouragement, direction, and space. And I needed the space, LOL. It was clear throughout my writing journey that Cathy is determined to get all her authors to the finish line, no matter what. And an author (especially a new one) needs that.

    Also, Cathy provides such a beautiful and supportive community of fellow authors! These weekly meetings offered so much! New relationships, tips, and a dedicated time to writing if you happened to have fallen short during the week. There’s so much to glean from these sessions with her and Allie.

    Lastly, I appreciate the resources that Cathy provides her authors. Whether it’s a writer’s retreat, webinars, referrals to publishers, or her blogs, there’s always something that helps to elevate one’s writing and helps you to have a successful book launch and marketing. I recommend working with Cathy if you need that needed push toward greatness.

  • The Author vs. Editor Dilemma: The Leadership Secret to Unlocking Your Team, Your Time, and Your Impact with Brandon Smith

    Do you feel overwhelmed by the constant demands on your time? Are you exhausted from handling the never-ending crises of your team? Are you drained by the ceaseless list of changing priorities that come from your leader? If “understaffed and overworked” describes you perfectly and you fear there may be no end in sight, this book is for you.

    Despite what you may have been told, you don’t have a time management or “prioritization” problem – you have a seat problem. The solution to reclaiming control of your life and winning back hours in your week is to overcome and master “The Author vs. Editor Dilemma.” Through this book, you will be equipped with the tools to:

    • Lead your team to take ownership, show initiative and display critical thinking to solve challenges without you;
    • Reclaim your time so you spend more time working “on” the business rather than “in” the business; and
    • Maximize your impact by learning the art of “clienteling” as you guide your supervisor’s decisions and influence your organization’s direction.

    Brandon Smith draws on his extensive experience as an executive coach to share illustrative examples of leaders who have transformed their chaotic and frenzied schedules into focused and streamlined strategies by utilizing the practical tools set forth in this book.

    Bursting with innovative ideas, practical examples and easily implementable approaches, “The Author vs. Editor Dilemma” will transform how you think about the structure and organization of your daily interactions. It will help you maximize any vertical relationship, from leading your team to influencing your manager.

    This is the second writing project that I have enlisted Cathy for her guidance and expertise. With Cathy’s help, I’ve published two books that I am proud of and that my clients have found applicable and practical to their everyday leadership. I am grateful to Cathy for her time and thoughtful attention to my work. She showed up to every checkpoint meeting with thorough feedback, helpful suggestions, and the right amount of encouragement and accountability. Cathy’s positive approach and wise coaching led me through the often painful and sometimes lonely process of writing and helped me feel empowered and capable to complete the daunting task of finishing a book.

  • Count Me In with Susan Allen

    One woman’s story of career, leadership, and family

    Discover what is holding you back from the career you were meant to have, the promotion you didn’t receive, and the risk you were afraid to accept.

    Count Me In is the memoir of the trailblazer Susan Allen, one of Canada’s Top 100 Most Powerful Women. She shares her deeply personal and professional leadership journey (including all her wrong turns) as she answers the question she hears most from young women: “How did you do it?”

    If you feel stuck in the talent pipeline at your company, suffer from imposter syndrome or perfectionism, or wish to achieve better work-life balance, Count Me In is for you.

    Susan’s journey to the top gives professional women the opportunity to learn strategies to:

    • Ask for a promotion and accept you have earned it,
    • Avoid risk averse behaviours that limit your growth and potential,
    • Acknowledge and kick mom guilt to the curb, and
    • Overcome life’s inevitable setbacks.

    I am grateful to have found Cathy Fyock in the early stages of my three year writing journey. I attended her writing workshops two summers ago, not only to help tame my negative inner voice, but to simply set aside the time to sit down and write, write, write (as opposed to write, edit, edit and more edit.) I was fortunate to make the acquaintance of a fellow writer in this workshop, who became my writing accountability buddy, all while learning a ton of useful tips and value in Cathy’s approach to the business of writing. I felt Cathy’s warm support and encouragement always, and soaked up her sage advice as a knowledgeable business book strategist. I continue to benefit from Cathy’s tribe of subject matter experts in the book and publishing areas who are regular guests on Cathy’s free master classes. Cathy’s books, ‘On Your Mark’ and ‘The Speaker Author’ helped me learn the nuts and bolts of writing, and how to use my book as a promotional tool for speaking engagements.

  • Singlehandedly. Learning to Unhide and Embrace Connection with Ruth Rathblott

    What are you hiding?

    Chances are there is something about you that makes you different, that makes you feel you don’t belong. Many of us hide—our ethnicity, sexuality, mental health, disability, religion…the list goes on. The diversity and inclusion movement has emboldened some to come out of the shadows. But too often, disability is not included in that conversation.

    Ruth Rathblott was born with a limb difference. In her compelling and intimate memoir, she recounts the exhausting and often lonely years she spent overachieving and trying to hide her disability before she learned to unhide. She takes us on a journey of self-discovery: discovering her difference, being taught to hide it, and ultimately finding self-acceptance and connection with others. This book will show you how to build a world of true acceptance, inclusion, and belonging.

    By the end, you will understand the need to:

    • Own your difference—it’s your greatest gift!
    • Find connection and community by allowing others in to support you
    • Create inclusive conversations that allow for curiosity and empathy
    • Recognize why representation is essential to creating an inclusive environment
    • Realize the power of sharing your story

    Singlehandedly is a book for all of us who have been hiding our differences and want to find freedom, for leaders who want to build more inclusive teams, and for diversity and inclusion directors committed to expanding the diversity conversation to include everyone.

    Working with Cathy is why I was able to get my book done! From building the space and structure for my ideas, to helping me create my commitment and intention for writing, to inviting me into her weekly community of writers, her supportive coaching was critical to my accomplishment! I tell everyone who has a book in them to work with a coach, and Cathy is the best one!

  • The Ancient Aviators of South Alabama with Faye Makarsky

    Imagine sitting in a room with a 102-year-old man who could still describe every nut and bolt on a T-34, a man who flew “The Hump,” a man who had to bail out of a C-46 over the mountains of Korea, an Imperial Iranian Air Force Colonel who barely got out of the country with his life, an Air Traffic Controller who spent his career helping pilots get out of dangerous situations, a man who flew an experimental helicopter into North Vietnam to install wiretapping equipment. These men are members of the Ancient Aviators Club of South Alabama, and this book records their memories.

    I thought writing down the stories of folks who loved aviation as much as I did would be easy. It wasn’t. After two or three, it was a jumbled-up mess. Cathy helped me straighten out the mess and organize my thoughts and methods. I think she should add pom poms to her logo! What a cheerleader! And we all need that. Through all my whining and crying, she remained calm and upbeat and when all was said and done, she led me to Amy Waninger (A Page Beyond). If Cathy can add my book to her shelf, she can make yours happen.

  • Change Your Circle, Change Your Life with Jamar Jones

    Change Your Circle, Change Your Life is a direct lifestyle that needs to be applied continuously for any human being to be successful. Through these chapters, you will go through so many mental and physical shifts that will challenge you as a human being. The purpose of this philosophy is to enhance your lifestyle and promote your growth. The more circles you touch, the more lives you can change. Following the methods in the book transform your excuses into results. I would not be where I am at today if it wasn’t for this mindset and the actions I took to constantly change my circles and meet new people. It manipulated my framework of thought, direction, purpose, connection and faith. Your circle affects more decisions than you know and this book is a guide to help you navigate through life.

    Once you take these principles and make them real in your life, you’re then going to make it real in others’. That means you’re going to give someone else a fighting chance. This book is important because it is a raw, actionable thing that anyone could do. This book in particular comes from a place of 50% mindset and 50% action from someone who is just like you. A lot of other books don’t dive into an actionable, step-by-step, a realistic program that you can start today with results that are big enough to impact your current situation at the highest level. It will change your life because it changed mine. I had nothing special, no handouts, no sail with wind to carry me to where I had to go. Through different circles was the key to unlock my mindset and then opportunities. If you follow the ideas in this book, that is going to increase the chances of opportunities to change your life.

    Thank you Cathy for your inspiring, relieving, insightful and energizing book sessions! Really appreciate your time in pushing me and believing in me when I thought I could not get the book out in time! Means so much to me.

  • Six Paths to Leadership: Lessons from Successful Executives, Politicians, Entrepreneurs and More with Meredith Persily Lamel & Mark Clark

    The paths that leaders walk significantly influence their success, offering differential opportunities and challenges. While conventional wisdom suggests that leadership styles and approaches may be equally effective across all situations, more recent research demonstrates the importance of employing strategies more specifically aligned with the context.

    This book offers critical insights and strategies, currently missing from the repertoire of leaders and their supporters, for managing across six distinct paths into leadership positions: promoted, hired, elected, appointed, founded, and family legacy. It illustrates lessons drawn from within and across paths, presented through themes, quotes, and stories drawn from interviews with over 60 successful leaders (executives, politicians, entrepreneurs, and more). While it is evident that these paths differ, those who study, hire, mentor, and coach leaders rarely consider the distinctions, nor suggest what may be learned across the paths.

    The emerging leaders, HR professionals, researchers, and coaches among the book’s readers will learn not only from those who have walked one particular path, but also from the experiences of those trekking in other directions. Most leaders will cross from one path to another over the course of their career. Some executives interviewed for the book worked their way up the ladder in one company, only to be recruited to fill a C-suite position in another company. Others were appointed to high-level government positions after stints as elected officials. The authors identify major distinctions when moving across the six paths.

    By reading this book, leaders and those who support them will develop greater self-awareness about each path so they can better leverage and manage their new challenges and opportunities from the first day in their new leadership position.

  • Live the Impossible: How a Wheelchair Has Taken Me Places I Never Dared to Imagine with Jenny Smith

    Jenny Smith was a typical teenager—a gymnast and athlete who loved hair and makeup, played in a band, and was active in her church youth group.
    Then one bright summer morning, a spinal cord injury left her paralyzed from the chest down and dependent on others for her most basic needs. Privacy and independence seemed like things of the past.

    But Jenny refused to give up or give in to her disability, and over time she discovered that a wheelchair could take her places she’d never dared to imagine. She’s traveled multiple times to Afghanistan and Mexico for wheelchair distributions and sports camps, and even rolled the New York City runway as a model during Fashion Week.

    Today, Jenny Smith is a spokesperson for independent and vibrant living with a disability. Her speeches, articles, and social media presence have touched thousands of lives.

    In Live the Impossible, Smith shares what it looks like to live with paralysis, from the everyday details most people never think about, to the countless people who have impacted her life along the way. With honesty and humor, faith and fortitude, Jenny shows us how we can all live the impossible, even when life doesn’t go as planned.

  • Healing from the Heart: Restoring Alignment to Revitalize Your Body, Soul and Spirit with Dana Grindal

    Life Can Hurt. We have all been wounded. The pain can hit deep and settle into our bodies and souls. In reaction to our pain, beliefs and patterns emerge that hinder the way we see ourselves, relate to others, and move through life. Pain slows us down and drains our mental and emotional energy. Pain holds us back.

    Modern society provides many opportunities to numb, hide or escape symptoms of pain without addressing the root cause. However, until the source of our pain is identified and remedied, it will stay alive in us, manifesting as physical and emotional pain, toxic thoughts, anxiety, depression, and more.

    Everyone is unique in his or her response to life’s hurts, but as explained in Healing from the Heart: • We can recognize our pain and respond in a way that puts us on the path to healing—and keeps us there. • Healing happens in layers; each chapter guides us through these layers simply and concisely. • Soul Connection questions provide valuable tools to connect us to our own heart at a deeper level while Spirit Connection exercises offer the opportunity to release the pain in prayer. • Practical applications empower us to heal from the heart level (the soul), which not only relieves pain but provides the freedom needed to live the abundant life for which we are designed!

    The principles and processes found in Dana’s authentic telling of her own journey from pain to wellness have helped hundreds experience the life-changing power of inner healing. Furthermore, Healing from the Heart features a refreshing combination of story, instruction and journaling prompts that lead to the peace and revitalization for which we’ve been searching. Healing from the Heart is ideal for group study as well as individual discovery.

    Cathy was an answer to prayer! When my friend recommended Cathy to me, I was working on a book but did not know what my next steps should be. Writing a personal story of healing is a very vulnerable journey. As a first time author, Cathy was so encouraging from day one. She drew out the gold within me I didn’t even know was there . She pushed me to expand the vision of the book and empowered me with the tools to accomplish that vision. Cathy is excellent at getting to the heart of the matter, and connecting with the author’s heart for the project. I highly recommend working with Cathy to see your book become a reality.

  • Door To Renewal: Spiritual Growth Through the Mind of St. Paul with Robin Jennings

    You Are Invited on a Journey to Renewal

    A clergyman in the Episcopal Church for over 40 years, Jennings has encouraged churches and parishioners to develop their spiritual growth and embark on a journey of renewal which became the catalyst for his book series and the cornerstone for this book. A trip to St. Paul’s Cathedral in London inspired him to embark on a deeper quest for spiritual renewal; one that he now invites you join him on as you dive into lessons, reflections and meaningful inspiration.

    Are You Ready?

    Renewal is an inward movement of the spirit, yet it forms and shapes all aspects of life. For Christians seeking a personal journey of renewal, this book will encourage you to learn from St. Paul’s witness and use it as a framework to help you:
    • Learn from his conversion. Paul becomes a changed man after his encounter with the resurrected Jesus and you too, have the opportunity to seek new life in Christ.
    • Learn from his conversation. Conversion opens the door to a conversation, often times beginning with God planting an eternal question within.
    • Learn from his conviction. Transformation of the mind leads to renewal and setting our minds on things that are above as we listen to the heartbeat of our journey.

    Cathy was a big help encouraging me with my first book on the importance of vision. She then helped me cast a vision for the second book which is on the renewal of the mind. As a result, Cathy encouraged me to write a third book and wrap them together as a “Spiritual Growth” program for churches. My mind is renewed thanks to the coaching from Cathy and helping my books get legs with podcasts and speaking engagements and social media even in the midst of a pandemic! I now am writing a third book which is under contract for publication this summer and it is amazing how far I have travelled with the ongoing guidance and direction from Cathy Fyock.

It contains the lessons he wishes he had known when he was starting his chamber career.

    Linking up with Cathy was absolutely pivotal to my book becoming a reality and becoming an Amazon Bestseller. From Day One, she gave solid advice, built discipline into my writing process with her on-line writing workshops and at a critical point, connected me to different options for choosing a publisher.

  • The Road to Purpose with Greg Pestinger

    Is Your Life Over as You Know It…Or Simply Just Beginning?

    The Road to Purpose provides a road map to help guide you through the fear and uncertainty that often comes with life transition. Whether you are a young adult moving from school to your first career, a business owner getting ready to exit the business you have put your heart and soul into, or a seasoned executive recently downsized and figuring out what to do next, you will see yourself in the stories of one man’s journey and the lessons learned that resulted in living a life of meaning and purpose.

    In The Road to Purpose: The Roadmap for Overcoming Life’s Major Transitions Greg Pestinger charts the five major growth areas that are often the result of major life changing events and eloquently delivers signposts along the way to get you past the disappointment, fear, and sometimes, hopelessness. He uses his own stories as a metaphor to help you through your struggles for meaning and purpose, specifically:

    • How to grieve and accept the transition
      How to get to know yourself all over again, the real you who has often been buried by a busy life
      How to find the courage to be your authentic self
      How to resolve to love yourself for who you are
      How to make the commitment to living a life of awe and wonder

    The Road to Purpose acknowledges the pain and disappointment of transition and uses that pain to help you live the life you were meant to lead, a life of meaning and purpose. A life full of wealth, happiness, and intention in service to others.

    Cathy has been an amazing coach. Without her guidance, persistence and good old fashion accountability, The Road to Purpose would never have seen the light of day. In her own firm but fair way she insured that what I said I wanted to do was done. She uses a unique mix of firm accountability and reassuring affirmations to inspire my best work. To bring the story to life that we both knew needed shared with the world. Cathy was there for this book and will be a part of many more to come.

  • The Apple Report: Diary of a Public School Board Member with Dr. Karen Hiltz

    The Apple Report is a must read for people seeking to make change in an education system that needs to be relevant, applicable, and provide quality for children in the 21st century. This first-hand sharing of experiences, challenges, and attempting to function in an environment where change is not welcome is eye opening. These accounts bring to the forefront that it’s vital for parents, grandparents, and family members to stand up and ensure the system deals with real, fundamental change that provides a quality education.

    If those within the system aren’t able to or won’t stand up to the bureaucracy and unions, then those outside the system must. The future of our republic depends on having an educated, informed, and skilled populace. We need entrepreneurs who have the audacity to think, create, and deal with failure in a productive manner. We are not all winners. We must experience defeat in order to enjoy victory. Reality isn’t always pretty, but it’s always helpful in shaping character. Embrace opportunity; step out in faith; visualize your significance. Become the person you want to be, not the person someone else tells you to be.

    I am so grateful to have found Cathy. As a floundering wanna-be author, Cathy came along at the right time to help me get from frustrated writer to a full-fledged published author. Her ability to communicate and help her clients get through the process is priceless. Also – her positive attitude is infectious and provided me with the confidence I needed to publish, not one, but two books in 2020.

     

  • Untie Every kNOT – Discover what kNOT is causing you to Miss Out, Chicken Out or Be Counted Out with Tammy Tiller Hewitt

    This book is about kNOTS – little k, big NOTS.  It’s about the kNOTs we tie around ourselves, around our dreams, our purpose and even around our God-given destiny.  It’s about the kNOTs we subscribe to or blame others for binding.   We can get so tangled up in our own kNOTS that it’s nearly impossible to recognize their paralyzing, life-limiting, dream-smashing grip.

    Knots unlike kNOTS, can serve an important purpose.  The problem is their purpose becomes so blurred, that instead of serving as a temporary safety handle, they become a permanent death-gripping stronghold.

    I wrote this book so together we can learn to identify and forever untie the Gordian-sized kNOTS holding us back.  This book is for anyone who has allowed a kNOT to miss out, chicken out or been counted out.

    Think of this book as a conversation between two friends. We may laugh, cry and perhaps debate – but in the end we’re friends.

     

    Cathy Fyock made writing a book easy. Get her on your team as early as possible. She was my secret weapon!

     

  • Leading hArtfully: The Art of Leading Through Your Heart to Discover the Best in Others with Diane Rogers

    Most leadership development books teach readers “how to lead,” but for acclaimed leadership coach and consultant Diane Rogers, that’s not enough. In her debut book, Leading hArtfully: The Art of Leading Through Your Heart to Discover the Best in Others, she shines a light on what’s missing from a leadership strategy that draws upon a conventional authoritarian “leader-as-expert” focus and offers the distinct opportunity to leverage the strengths and magnificence within your employees and colleagues. Diane shows you how to BE your best leader self to bring out and discover the best in them.

    Leading hArtfully is a book about the art and the heart (aka “hArt”) of leadership. It’s an invitation to bring your best self forward in transformative ways to discover and leverage the best in others — in your work and in your everyday life. Diane explains that, “Getting to the heart and art of leading, finding your flow, elevating the eloquence and grace within you, and connecting — at the heart level — with each individual is an experience not to be missed. It holds the possibility of a most magnificent journey of leading others.”

    Cathy facilitates making the impossible possible! For as long as I can remember I wanted to write a book. And while I believed there ‘was a book in me’, this notion of being an author and sharing my impassioned messages brought with it insecurity, a lack of confidence and stifling inability to get started … until I met Cathy. Not only did I start to write a book, I finished one! The process, coaching and encouragement that Cathy brings to each conversation is expert, supportive and motivating. Her ‘accountability’ nudges were key in helping me to cross that finish line and experiencing the delight in BEING an author !

  • Addicted to Perfect with Vitale Buford

    Author Vitale Buford spent nearly three decades of her life in the web of perfection. The roots of her perfection were born in her childhood – she had a dysfunctional home-life fraught with alcoholism, workaholism and shame. This combination created an environment of neglect, where the only way Vitale got attention was to be perfect. She was praised for being an “easy child,” “pretty,” and “self-motivated,” so that’s what she tried to be. Her need for perfection and outside success was coupled with her body image obsession. It was also a distraction from the pain of abandonment and loneliness she experienced in her childhood. It was the perfect storm – she tied her self-worth to her external success and her appearance, and hence, her addiction to perfection was born.

    Cathy was beyond incredible to work with – I wouldn’t have been able to complete my book without her! Her guidance, knowledge, and accountability are what helped me to the finish line. She is a person of character and she really cares about her clients and believes in them. It was an honor working with her – she’s amazing!

  • Welcome to My Life: A Personal Parenting Journey Through Autism with Laurie Hellmann

    Welcome to My Life shares the 14-year journey of a true warrior mom advocating for her non-verbal, severely autistic son from diagnosis through his teenage years. This brutally honest and heartwarming account details the daily struggles and often lack of social understanding that families face when raising a child who relies on parental assistance for every need. Experience the laughter and love, unspoken bonds and unflagging devotion of one very special family. And be changed forever by the knowledge that a mother’s love knows no bounds, and that autism — though it presents various challenges — does not define who a person is nor does it devalue or diminish their contributions to this world.

    The writing process can be overwhelming and scary, but working with a knowledgeable and supportive book coach like Cathy made for a smooth and exciting journey. Cathy helped me connect the dots with the many ideas and thoughts swirling around in my head and encouraged me to effectively put them in written form for a remarkable end product. In addition, her expertise on the various publishing strategies provided me with the confidence I needed to select the best publisher for my memoir.

  • Buckle Up, Buttercup! How to Drive Success by Embracing the Power of Change with Michelle Wyatt

    Amid a truly disruptive and disorienting moment in history, one thing is clear: everything has changed … the way we work, shop, hire, lead, educate our children, socialize with friends, manage our health, and so much more. Our expectations regarding “normal” activities or status quo interactions, in the workplaces and socially, have changed forever. And the very concept of change – for most of us – feels unsettling and scary. But change agent and change “survivor” Michelle Wyatt assures us that we can not only navigate change successfully but embrace and leverage it to put ourselves back in the driver’s seats of our lives and careers.

    Change is the perhaps the only constant and, yet, we fear it, avoid it, resist it, and even grieve in the wake of it. It makes us anxious and hyper-vigilant. But what if we could see change as an opportunity? An asset? A leg up? A silver lining? What if we could plan for and manage change in a way that helped us live our best lives?

    Join Michelle Wyatt on an emotional and intellectual road trip through the nuances of personal and professional change, exploring how changes – of any size, at work or at home – can impact so very much, and why they require our honest and focused attention. Michelle offers stories from her own childhood and from her own major (and wildly successful!) career change from elementary school teacher to corporate trainer. Today, as a workplace trainer for business professionals in every area of functional expertise (from IT and marketing, to accounting and operations) in industries as diverse as financial services, hospitality, retail and personal services, Michelle sees – every day – how corporate change trickles down to impact us all. She has discovered that different approaches, attitudes and circumstances surrounding change can make a vital difference in the personal and professional results we experience. And she’s developed fresh ways for you to turn those insights into a kind of modern-day competitive edge.

    I had a story to share but had no clue how to make that happen before meeting Cathy. While working with Cathy I was able to get a solid outline and begin drafting my full manuscript. Probably the most valuable part of working with Cathy came via her connections to the publishing world. Through Cathy I was able to begin building a relationship with Silver Tree Publishing who ultimately chose to publish my book. Through the connection with Silver Tree my final product was better than I could have imagined and outperformed what I had anticipated.

  • May You Live in Christ: Spiritual Growth Through the Vision of St. Peter with Robin T. Jennings

    CAST A VISION FOR A NEW YOU. If ever there was a model for us and for living in this fast-paced world of ours, it has to be the life of St. Peter.

  • Heart to Heart: Spiritual Care through Deep Listening with Clare Biedenharn, DMin, BCC

    “What would you do if this were your family?”

    As a nurse, you’ve heard this question dozens of times. For many, the natural inclination is to “fix” the problem by offering suggestions, but that approach is limited by our own experiences and personal biases.

    There is a more effective way to provide spiritual care. It begins with a question, an invitation to connect.

    In Heart to Heart, Dr. Biedenharn explores an ancient, proven and effective model of listening which she field-tested with critical care nurses. Through her work, she found that deep listening can lead to deep connection in healthcare. The spiritual connection doesn’t just improve patient outcomes, it also helps nurses reconnect with their call to service.
    And it all begins with a question

    I always thought I had a book in me but I wasn’t sure about the who, what, why, when and where part of it. Cathy’s diligent, supportive presence helped me first find it and then pull it out. I wasn’t an easy customer. I fought it every step of the way but like the good shepherd she is, Cathy reigned me in and kept me going in the right direction.

  • Leadership Tough Love with Tim Lupfer
