It’s not often you’ll read an announcement of this kind from me, so I’ll get straight to the point.
There is a person from behind the scenes of Thought Partners International, formerly Multiple Streams of Coaching income, who has been largely unsung,yet steadfast as an advocate of my work. I daresay without her, you very well might never have heard of me or be reading this!
Among many things, she walked my team through the then-labyrinth of self-publishing countless books and products, organized workshops, exhibit booths, even put out fires when it came to shipping of books, and more.
This very special person is Lynne Klippel, and today she is cresting an Everest of her own with a new book called ‘Overcomers, Inc. – True Stories of Hope, Courage and Inspiration.’
‘Overcomers, Inc.’ is coming out with great verve and fanfare, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed watching her team at work, cheerleading vociferously if virtually…”Wow, wouldja look at this field of flowers blossom in a feast for all the senses!”
It is with deep joy and gratitude that I get to return a little good karma to Lynne by introducing you to her achievement.
If you are…
– interested in a genuinely moving set of stories (not fluff, hastily cobbled together and called a book)
- hope for those most difficult of times (not pablum that your eyes slip over, these examples are sticky – gripping, really – in the best sense of the word)
…you might very much like to add this book to your collection.
In my library, it will take pride of place next to my Pema Chodron ‘Comfortable with Uncertainty’ which I regularly prescribe to coaching clients, family, friends AND MYSELF when times are hard ‘Take two chapters of Pema and call me in the morning…or not, if you don’t need to anymore.’
While a very high calibre of extra goodies are available as part of this special birthday, all that remains for me to say is – I don’t much care. Sorry! Not to be rude to the gracious and great folk who’re participating. The point is, Overcomers, Inc., the book itself, the actual pages with the words written on them, immortalizing these 37 individuals, is a treasure and worth every red cent spent on copies.
As the world turns, ordering a copy today, Thursday October 22, 2009, makes a BIG difference to Lynne and her team, and so I ask you to do so instead of waiting for another day.
Simple instructions are here:
I’m looking forward to sending these out as gifts at the end of the year for the whole gang, including friends and colleagues overseas. Overcoming adversity with grace is not a pie-in-the-sky concept – so much pap concocted by the self-help world. With this book, we now have incontrovertible proof that we can access by turning to our bookshelf.
Thank you, Lynne and team. I am proud to know you and be associated with your launch!
Off to Amazon I go…
To comment and congratulate Lynne, do so below – I’ll make sure she sees it … I know you may know her from her contributions and activity in the coaching and writing communities…
