Every moment of your life you are changing, to a degree, the life of the whole world. Every man and woman has an ‘atmosphere’ which is affecting others. So silently and invisibly does this atmosphere work, we may forget at times it exists. Yet all the great forces of nature—light, heat, electricity, gravitation—are silent and invisible. In all nature, the wonders of the ‘seen’ are dwarfed to insignificance when compared to the majesty and glory of the ‘unseen.’
Empress and the Prairie Girl is a thoughtful little story perfect for our time.

Author and composer, Cameron Austin, has created a beautiful relationship between Empress and the Prairie Girl, and with each turn of a page invites us to travel along their path in life with great sensitivity.

You might think you’d like to hire a ghostwriter to write your book for you, however, there’s wisdom in considering what your actual needs are first. This way, whether you decide to write your book yourself or have someone else do it for you, you’ll make a better decision overall.

Over and over again, the value of one-to-one coaching and consulting has been proven indispensable in most of our careers, especially when we’ve aligned ourselves with the right person . . . for us. Although many coaching and consulting models for business owners and authors have changed to try and reach the masses, I still believe that having a meaningful conversation with an authentic expert one-to-one can pay significant dividends over group sessions. Both can be very beneficial, of course . . .

So, what’s your story? Have you always dreamed of writing a book? Are you a business owner with a particular area of expertise? If so, where do you start?
To write a new story is a great metaphor for many things in our lives. Sometimes it’s about creating healthier habits.

As we know, the outcomes that develop are stronger decision-making skills, more confidence, courage, personal happiness, and fulfillment of purpose.
