A sincere “thank you” and lots of good news inside, including FREE events. It’s a long one, but worth the read!

Friends — THANK YOU for all the support you gave to the Twenty Won book launch! We (all 21 contributing authors) are so grateful. We managed to reach #1 in THREE Amazon categories, and we landed at #10 in the Women & Business category — all of which makes the book an Amazon Best Seller, and in turn makes all of us Best Selling Authors!

If you haven’t downloaded your copy, or purchased the paperback, you can do so here.

And read my blog post about my chapter, From Imposter to Inspiration, here.

LIVE, IN-PERSON EVENT: We are in the planning stages of the Twenty Won in-person Book Signing Event where you can meet the authors, get your copy signed, network with business professionals, and more! Stay tuned for information VERY soon!

Are you a Brave Woman? Do you have a tribe of other Brave Women and a space for you to move into Brave Action?

The Brave Women Project (BWP) is that place!

Join me on Saturday, June 5 as I discuss “Creating Your Village”.

For Kelli Komondor, a BWP founding member and curator of Twenty Won, it included starting a business and building her own village of strong women to bravely tell their stories. Contributors include our founder, Holly McIlwain, as well. Join us for Brave Women Brunch on June 5 and learn about the process of building a village, asking for what you need, and giving honest feedback to friends and colleagues. What does your village look like? What do you need it to look like?

This virtual brunch is open to nonmembers and is a fantastic place to experience unparalleled encouragement and to be your true, Brave self! It’s free — give BWP a try!

🟢 September 18 — LIVE and virtual! 🟢

Join K2 Crushers, LIVE at Kennywood park (or virtually in your own neighborhood) for the 2021 Walk the Talk for Liver Health with the Community Liver Alliance.

Why I Walk: I walk to raise awareness about liver disease and about organ donation. My dad, a Vietnam Veteran, suffered from Agent Orange exposure and had multiple health issues that ended his life at an early age. He received a kidney before he passed at 58 years young in 2005 and that gift of organ donation gave us extra time with him.

Organ donation is so vital for so many people!

Join me and my team and let’s get some fresh air (and Potato Patch Fries!) on September 18! Sign up today!

My sister Jaime, our Dad, and Me — 1976.

I LOVE hearing from you. Please share your thoughts or questions with me!

Until next time!
