Living a life that inspires others can often be daunting but it can also be one of the most rewarding things to do. Imagine being responsible for changing someone else’s life for the better. For giving someone else hope that there is light at the end of the very dark tunnel.
Sometimes all it takes is to read about someone else’s journey through life, to put your life into perspective and to give you a new outlook and rejuvenate a lagging spirit. When you see that others have triumphed through tragedy and heartache you realise that you can overcome even the greatest obstacles.
An inspiring group of 38 female entrepreneurs, including International Best Selling Author Dr Madisen Harper, have recently come together to produce an eBook that gives you a look into their lives.
They share their stories of love, loss and life and give hope for a brighter future. These amazing women are all contributing authors in the newest release book, “SHINE…it’s like glitter for your soul”. The book was compiled by Kathie Holmes of Creative Ability Network and is the first book in the SHINE BRIGHT series of books. Click here to download your Kindle copy of SHINE.

When I was at school I wanted to be a writer, I imagined myself as a combination of Jo from Little Women and Jane Eyre, writing every day while sitting under an apple tree.
As sometimes happens life got in the way and I did various things including nursing, having some wonderful jobs in the corporate world and then after becoming a mother I moved into the community and disability world.
Of course I wrote reports and funding submissions, however something inside me yearned to write so I finally did it.
In 2009 I wrote a short book on relationship tips entitled "How To Have A Great Relationship: 96 Tips For Turning A Healthy Relationship Into The Perfect Relationship" and had it published on Amazon both as a soft cover "real" book and an e-book.
I was so excited and pleased with myself but I only told my husband and son and a couple of close friends. Looking back I think it was about not feeling comfortable "blowing my own trumpet".
In another way it was a delicious secret I carried around with me.
Eventually I told a few more people, meanwhile without any promotion whatsoever I was selling a few copies of both the soft cover book and the e-book each month.
The excitement of having people that had never heard of me buying my book was thrilling.
I am looking forward to contributing to Michelle's latest project "Love Alters" - my journey as a writer continues.
