Improve your life through the power of gratitude

Power of GratitudeUse the power of gratitude to change your entire life.

When you are grateful, you raise your vibration and thus attract other things that are on the same vibration.  Want a better job, great relationships and a happy life?  The solution is right here!

Use gratitude!

You need to get on gratitude’s frequency and stay there.  How do you do it?  You play games and use daily strategies to remind you to be thankful and appreciative.

There is a fantastic book called Thank & Grow Rich by Pam Grout that shows you how.  This book is full of strategies on how to live with gratitude.

When I read the book however, I was a bit overwhelmed by all the different gratitude practices she lists.  So I created a course and a workbook to help others sort through all these great ideas.

The author isn’t a fan of creating step-by-step instructions or action guides.  While that works for her style, it certainly doesn’t for me.

Learn more about the course I created and the workbook that makes sense of Thank & Grow Rich.  I think you will find it helpful.

Don’t worry if you haven’t read the book.  This workbook provides an overview of Grout’s book and then provides an action guide so you can implement her great ideas.

Learn more below.  Plus as a reader thank you, I am offering a special discount on the course.  Look below the video for more information.

Special Reader Discount

I appreciate you taking the time to visit the blog and as a thank you, here is a special reader discount for the course above.  You will need a free Udemy account to access the course.  (Watch out, Udemy is addictive 🙂  )

Thank & Grow Rich WorkbookWorkbook

If video isn’t your thing, you can also read the workbook in e-book and paperback versions.

This workbook reviews the full Thank & Grow Rich book plus gives you an action guide so that you can put what you learn into action.  Unleash the power of gratitude into your life.

You can find both on Amazon.

This world needs more Trustworthy Thought Leaders

Imagine IfAre you a Thought Leader?

Do you feel that you have the pulse of a community?  Do you have a sense of what people want and need before they even tell you?

If you are that type of person, then you are also the type of person that people listen to.  You may not even notice that people rely on your opinion.  You aren’t aware of the important role you play in their lives because you are busy “doing” and not sitting on the sidelines watching.

The Unsung Thought Leaders

Thought leaders often don’t recognize the skill that have to lead others and guide good decisions.  This type of leader isn’t serving his or her ego, they are serving the community or the world at large by just doing what feels right.

We are in dire need of more leaders like you!  In a world full of corrupt politics, honest thought leaders are needed to bring us all to a better way of living with one another.

However, leading a movement or an activist group may feel overwhelming.  It may be more than you want to take on.  Did you know that the “big” thought leaders started out on a much smaller scale and their following grew in relation to the value they provided?

Simple Ways You Can Make an Impact as a Thought Leader

There are other ways that thought leaders can help their community and perhaps one of these ways will appeal to you.


Your participation in a community project can raise the level of the entire volunteer group without ever putting the focus on you.  You lead by just being true to who you are.

Look for volunteer projects that speak to your passion.  If you see a need in your community – consider pulling together your own volunteer team.  Remember you are a natural leader and people will respond to your sincerity and enthusiasm.


Think about submitting thoughtful articles to your community paper.  Most communities have a small local publication and typically these publications don’t have full-time writers.  Your voluntary contributions would be appreciated.

You will be amazed at how quickly you will build a following of like-minded folks in your area.  Communities are starving for a trustworthy and honest voice.  The fabric of communities started to unravel as we become globalized but now there is a strong desire to be community-based once more.

Its more important than ever to know your neighbor and to support your community.  You could be a catalyst in strengthening the bonds in your area.

Forum Contributor

There are hundreds of topic specific forums on the internet.  Often these online communities are divided into two camps – those that truly want to offer their expertise and those that want to sell you something.  Keep the level of the forum high by adding to the ranks of true helpful experts.  Share what you know and help others address frustrations and problems.

This is also a good way to expand a side-interest.  Thought leaders are always hungry to learn more.  As you see where the needs of the forum are, you can focus your learning in those specific areas and become even more of an asset.


The internet has ushered in a new era of social validation.  We tend to patronize establishments and use products based on the reviews they get.  If you aren’t in the habit of leaving reviews, give thought to how your experience and your honesty can help others have a good experience.

Thought leaders have learned to see through marketing ploys and form their own opinions.  Consumers tend to trust the review of these thought-leaders more than the corporate sales jargon.  Add your voice to the marketplace.  You are needed!

If you are open to the idea of giving an honest account of your experience, I am in need of book reviewers.  Please visit here to learn about my Thought Leader Book Review Team.

Thought Leader Book Reviewer Team

Honest Book Reviewers Needed

Are you a thought leader?  Do people listen when you speak or turn to you for advice?

I am looking for thought leaders to provide honest reviews of Amazon of my books.  Would you consider joining the book reviewer team?

My Mission

My mission in life is to help women live happier and healthier lives.  I create journals and workbooks that are focused on taking action or implementing concepts.  I put a lot of thought and care into the words I type.  These books reflect my soul.

I need to get my books into the hands of as many people as possible so that I can help these readers increase their health and happiness.

Book Reviewers Help My Mission

Finding FreedomIt is hard for a book to be found on Amazon when there are thousands of new titles being published every week.

Book reviewers help books rise in the search results.  By leaving honest reviews, you can help a book’s ranking.  The more reviews a book has, the more it will appear in related search results.

Also book reviewers help potential readers decide if the book is right for them.  As a thought leader, you have your own unique perspective on what you read.  You may capture the essence of the book better than I did.

You may be able to share a nugget that resonates with the community.

I am interested in HONEST book reviews.  You don’t need to say you liked a book if it didn’t strike a chord with you.

Thought Leader Book Reviewer Team

If you would be interested in sharing your thoughts and helping the reading community find books that meet their needs, then please join my Thought Leader Book Reviewer Team.

How it works:

The Walking ChallengeEach month you will get a newsletter with the new titles that are available for review.  You can review as many or as few books as you would like.

Specific instructions are detailed in the newsletter but here is an overview.

  1. You let me know what title you are interested in via email.
  2. I will send you a PDF version of the book.
  3. After you have read the book, you leave a review on Amazon.
  4. You let me know that you have completed a review.
  5. You are then eligible to review another book if you would like.

I hope you will help me to spread health and happiness through my books.  Please join the team below.

I promise to respect your email and not spam you!
