Inspiration Contagion! Discover How You Can Spread Inspiration and Healing Like Wildfire

It all started with a small idea I discovered from my meditation cushion. That tiny seed of an idea. That small spark of inspiration…

Why not focus on inspiration instead of pain and challenge? Why not share stories of struggle and pain but in a way that ignites hope, healing and connection?

From there I launched my podcast, Inspiration Contagion. I wanted to start collecting stories of inspiration from others. To refine our definition for inspiration, success and legacy. And to remain inspired but surrounding myself with others who had BIG dreams and goals. People who weren’t afraid to take action. Who aren’t afraid to stumble, fall but get back up again.

When I wanted to start writing, I got stuck. Until I found my publisher who coached me through my excuses. She told me I had three books in me. And of course, it would be overwhelming to put it all into one book. So why not break it into three?

That’s exactly what I did. The result… a mere 7 months later I published my first book!

Inspiration Contagion, Health Secrets for Raving Success is a success! It hit 1 new release in two categories on Amazon. And I was able to snag bestseller status in three categories.

It has been a whirlwind. A roller coaster with ups and downs. But I wouldn’t change a thing. I continue to learn and grow. Because if you read the book, you’ll learn that healing is an inside job and it’s lifelong…

What’s the Book About?

The book at its core is about inspiration. Igniting that tiny spark of excitement, passion and energy that urges us to do more, seek more, be more.

In the book, I share my personal stories…stories of chronic pain, divorce, health challenges, struggles and layoffs. In facing and overcoming my challenges, I have discovered tools that work. Strategies that help us live a fulfilled and thriving life.

My goal in this book is to show you how I personally struggled with and ultimately overcame HUGE challenges. And if I can do it, so can you!

Better yet, you don’t have to stumble and fall as much as I did. Because you have the trail map, the toolkit and someone who believes in you.

I know our world is hurting. I know you are hurting.

We have never been more isolated than we are now. Between the pandemic, technology and social media, we are being challenged at the very core of who we are as humans.

What we need is to slow down…step back and reconnect. Reconnect to who we are and to those around us. Get back to simpler ways of being.

If you feel alone, hopeless or scared, you’re not alone. And the tools in this book provide a step by step action guide to help you get back to a happy, healthy life. The steps aren’t overwhelming. They are simple, baby steps that will help you gain huge momentum.

If you want to step up your health, boost your energy, get more done and be a beacon of light in the world, this book is for you.

No one is perfect at this. Healing is a lifelong journey. It never stops. Once we fix one thing, we are faced with something new. The only constant in life is change. The sooner we accept that, the better off we are.

As soon as you stop growing, you begin slowly digging your grave. Instead, let’s choose the trail to growth, health, inspiration and living the life of your dreams.

You’ve got this!

What’s with the Campfire?

As I wrote this book, I wrote it with YOU in mind.

I wrote it with the visual of us sitting around a campfire, sharing our stories. Our struggles. Our challenges. Our solutions, ideas and support.

I could see you sitting across from me, your face aglow with light and hope. Snuggled up in our coziest of outfits. Sipping some hot java or cocoa. And sharing. Connecting. Laughing. Crying. Growing. Cheering each other on…side by side.

Throughout the book, I share very vulnerable and intimate stories with you. I share these because the biggest breakthroughs I’ve experienced were always in a circle.

Through sharing in Celebrate Recovery I learned I wasn’t alone in my struggles. In sharing stories with friends around the campfire backpacking in Lassen National park I discovered the power of relationships, community and connection. In sharing my step study journey, I had a humbling experience…one full of support, love and judgment-free.

We grow and heal in circles. Because we have blindspots. We need others to point out perspectives we aren’t able to see or hear. We need others to share new ideas we can’t come up with on our own.

The road forward is never black and white. There’s never just one or two choices...but rather unlimited possibilities. We just can’t see them without a community.

When you read the book, it starts off with a story that involves a campfire and a bear!

Want to learn more? Go grab your copy on Amazon…I promise you won’t be disappointed. And you won’t be bored.

Warning…his is not for the faint of heart. It’s for the bold. For those who are ready to take action. For those who want to change. For those who want to take ownership of their healing journey and life.
