Author Expresses The Beauty Of Being Unique

HOLLYWOOD, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, August 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — “Never underestimate the power of a person who knows what she wants” – an aphorism that pretty much describes Jennifer Monroy’s passion. In her book entitled I Am Somebody Special, she expresses how her soul belongs to the children of all ages and backgrounds.

Jenn Monroy, also known as “Jenny Foor” lives in Florida. She graduated from Florida Atlantic University with a degree in Sociology and Psychology. Being someone who is able to see the struggles of many children, she has written the book to encourage the younger crowd to learn to see the beauty from within. The unique physical characteristic as portrayed by the story’s character, Penelope the Polar Bear, should not become a limitation to gain friends. She also emphasizes how God made each one unique.

The author invites the readers to read I Am Somebody Special and become inspired and proud of the uniqueness that God made everyone to be

About the Author:
Jenn Monroy a.k.a. "Jenny Foor" is a Florida native who graduated from Florida Atlantic University with a Bachelor's degree in Sociology and Psychology. My heart and soul belongs to children of all ages and backgrounds. My greatest wish is for children to be liked and loved by their peers and those who care for them for who they are on the inside and for what they bring to this world. Physical traits should not matter and children should be encouraged by the community to be proud of where they come from and be proud of any "special" traits they have. All children deserve the opportunity to shine and rise to the top of their class and be friends with whomever they wish. If in the end that person chooses not to be their friend then that is their loss, but each child in this world needs to be proud of the "special" person they are! God made each of us just the way we are for a specific reason! May God bless each and every one of you… young and old and always remember … I Am Somebody Special!

Author Pens An Extraordinary Love Story

The Diamond Maker: An Extraordinary Love Story

Author Pens An Extraordinary Love Story

GLOUCESTER, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, August 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Every love story is beautiful, but there are those that make a heart beat a little faster as each hand is held and there are those that grow stronger as every soul is touched – thus the birth of The Diamond Maker: An Extraordinary Love Story by Joseph M. Orlando.

The Diamond Maker: An Extraordinary Love Story introduces the main characters; Bart and Angela, both victims of the societal norms. As teenagers, they have struggled and suffered from emotional abuse by their peers and everyone else around them. Bart has a severe stutter condition which led the bullies to name him “Stutter Boy”, while Angela on another note had struggled to learn the English language since her family moved to the U.S. from Sicily. Her difficulty to defend herself verbally made people to name her the “Ugly Angela”. Both Bart and Angela felt that they were not worthy of love until fate had brought them together. Angela found her way to Bart during the lowest point in his life. She supported him in all ways and he did the same. A day came when they both realized that they were stronger when they are together. Will Bart and Angela’s love story last?

The author offers a source that represents love not through the outward appearance of people, but their inward significance. When two people find their way to each other and feel inseparable, they are on their way to creating an extraordinary love. The love story authored by Joseph M. Orlando is definitely one for the books!

Author Introduces Ella S. Pluck To The Younger Audience!

The Christmas Spryte Encounter: Picture with Santa

Author Introduces Ella S. Pluck To The Younger Audience!

WILLARD, MISSOURI, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, August 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Do you recall the children’s books that changed your kid’s life? What about the Christmas stories that your family enjoyed? Author Nanette Crighton writes another story, a new favorite that would pour into the hearts of the children and give a lesson about conquering fear – The Christmas Spryte Encounter: Picture with Santa.

The Christmas Spryte Encounter: Picture with Santa introduces the character of a young boy who encounters a dilemma each year, as he must get his picture taken with Santa. The growing uneasiness of the boy triggers a tiny elf to pay him a visit. Ella S. Pluck comes to rescue the boy and helps him conquer his fear. She extends help by giving the boy a list of things that he can do to divert his attention to reduce his anxiety. In return, the boy gets a valuable present from Ella if he focuses and thinks of her. The name “Pluck” suits Ella as she shows how she can effectively take away the boy’s fear.

Dr. Crighton’s new book teaches the younger audience that fear has no hold over anyone and that parents need to understand that they play Ella S. Pluck’s part in the lives of their children. Everyone is invited to a magical reading, a sensible journey of having enough courage to overcome fear. Another must-read source by Dr. Crighton!

About the Author:
Dr. M. Nanette Crighton often ends up in charge without intentionally seeking a position of leadership. Her big-picture thinking, endearing qualities and willingness to set an example simply compel others to follow.

“I can delegate tasks making people feel empowered rather than imposed upon,” says Crighton, the medical director and owner of Crighton Aesthetic Studio. “I make a point to recognize contributions by others in a genuine way, and I make certain that I do my share of the least favorable job.”

Author Shares The Highlights Of His Life Being An Artist

Best of Ken Jackson

Author Shares The Highlights Of His Life Being An Artist

MADISON, WISCONSIN, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, August 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Being an artist means healing ones injury and at the same time endlessly exposing them. Thus, musician and writer Ken Jackson brings his best creation to the readers – Best of Ken Jackson.

His book entitled Best of Ken Jackson discloses his triumphs, failures and everything in between in all those years. He shares his experiences when he started playing guitar and bass in high school and writing poems that flourished in his English class. Jackson’s write-up, “let’s blow up the rotten school and build ourselves a swimming pool” ignited a commotion as everyone thought of it as a threat – like a bomb threat at present, so to say.

In 1985, Kenneth Jackson recorded with a famous producer, the same person who produced Nirvana’s Neverworld. His timeline included a twenty-year sentence for a crime, but this did not hinder him from pursuing his passion. His poetry writing was honed by enrolling a course in creative writing, which at the same time served as his therapy while he was in the institution. When released in 1999, he put out a bunch of rock and roll albums and started recording his life through writing his own book titles.

The author shares his life experiences in detailed. Each section of his writing highlights events that people and artists like him can relate themselves. The author invites everyone to read his book as he shares positivity amidst the struggles that life gave him. Truly, the life of Jackson is an art and art is his life.

About the Author:
I started off as a musician in high school, playing guitar and bass. Coming out of high school, I knew some of my own songs as well as those of other artists. I didn't start writing poems for a while though-except in high school for English class, when I wrote a poem that said, "Let's blow up the rotten school and build ourselves a swimming pool," which raised an issue at school similar to bomb threats in this day and age. Then there was this dirty poem I wrote in my early twenties. But I was still writing songs then. I took some college courses in jazz, piano, songwriting, and creative writing. Back in 1985, I recorded with a famous producer. Butch Vig produced Nevermind by Nirvana, a number-one album of the year in the early nineties. Then, in 1986, I started a twenty-year sentence for a crime. That's when I started writing poetry. I took a course in creative writing from UW–Extension. I wrote a few poems and people liked them, so I wrote more. There came a time when I used poetry as therapy. I would write two poems for every two weeks. And that beats writer's block. A lot of that stuff is in the book Best of Ken Jackson. I was released in '99 and put out a bunch of rock 'n' roll albums. I was also participating in a monthly poetry group for a while. I wrote one section of this book using a variety of student researchers.

Alyson Franz of Paradigm Shift to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

JOHNSTON, RHODE ISLAND, UNITED STATES, August 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — While traditional talk therapy is considered the standard in mental healthcare, rarely does it lead to people completely letting go of their problems. In fact, people will often rehearse their problems instead of letting them go if all they do is talk about them.

Alyson Franz is a bilingual licensed independent clinical social worker and the founder of Paradigm Shift, where she offers transformational healing programs, coaching and therapy, as well as personal growth workshops and programs.

“Paradigm Shift is about transformation,” says Alyson. “It's about being able to let go of whatever is holding you back and stepping into the best version of yourself.”

Alyson specializes in synergetic therapy, a combination of traditional therapies and modern therapy modalities, which includes energy psychology, mindfulness and spirituality.

“We integrate a lot of energy psychology into the traditional healing model because energy psychology actually gets to the root of the problem,” says Alyson. “Everything is energy at its core, including emotions, whatever block or fear or issue that we're having is energetic at its core. We identify what it is, that's affecting the person, whether it be a trauma, a belief, an identity, or fear. There's lots of possibilities of energetically what could be holding people back. We're good at figuring out what that block is and helping them release it.”

According to Alyson, the whole premise of energy psychology is that a disruption in our energy system is the root cause of whatever symptoms we're experiencing: sadness, depression, anxiety and nightmares are just some examples. That energetic charge is what we need to clear.

“I don't just want to be a good therapist, I want to help people tap into their unlimited potential, because we all have this potential, but very few of us use it. Once you start letting go of your blocks life can become amazing. I’ve seen people make unbelievable changes in their lives.”

Many people have experienced trauma or other life events that led them to feeling stuck, unhappy and unfulfilled. Alyson was that person. She knew that life was meant to be happy and there was a way she could completely heal, but she had no idea what it would take.

“Synergetic therapy was a big part of my healing process,” says Alyson. “I feel like I've been very thorough on the work on myself, so it's very easy for me to help people get insight into what's going on for them. And after we identify the block we clear it from their system. And we all have a lot more blocks than we think we do. People are frequently surprised by how many blocks they actually have.!”

As for the future, Alyson plans to expand Paradigm Shift’s model and serve as a light for the community and help clients awaken to their full potential.

CUTV News Radio will feature Alyson Franz in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on August 22nd at 12pm EDT and with Jim Masters on August 29th at 12pm EDT.

Psychologist Dr. Valerie Kendall to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA, August 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Psychologist Valerie Kendall, or Dr. Val as she is familiarly known, is an MA, PhD, Registered Therapist with numerous other credentials in her arsenal. She also practices a full complement of modalities, and for clients of all ages. As a certified Play Therapist in both Canada and the U.S.A., she works a lot with children through the medium of play. With many adults she counsels in the field of ADD or addictive behaviors, which include sex addiction, gambling, and The Internet. Regarded as a Substance Abuse Expert, she assesses and counsels people on the abuse of alcohol and drugs. With other adults, she functions as a couples’ counselor. Above all, she is someone who cares, who builds a true relationship with clients and offers the kind of unconditional love that lets them know that even when they feel they are at the most unlovable point in their lives, they still have value.

Dr. Val practices out of two localities 1) The Healing Space, Calgary, and 2) McRae St. Okotoks. She is affiliated with many professional associations in Canada including: CPA, PAA, CCPA, CFCH, (AB.), ACEP. She’s registered and certified with the American Board of Hypnotherapy and the Alberta Hypnotherapy Association. Dr. Val attends workshops and conferences offered by the Rocky Mountain Play Therapy Institute, where she did most of her child therapy training. This led to an invitation to write a chapter in the forthcoming book Turning Points in Play Therapy and The Emergence of Self. Her section recounts one case history that professionals and families will learn from, about when a child in play therapy reveals that first glimmer of hope and progress.

While some of Dr. Val’s therapies correlate to energy and that might seem edgy, she felt that if so many PhDs were involved in an organization like ACEP (Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology), it must be worth investigating. Depending on the client, their interest and mindset, she might use a newer technique like EFT or a more conventional approach like cognitive behavioral therapy When she does apply Emotional Freedom Technique, she’ll introduce the concept of energy flow and tell clients energy is something that exists, but we don’t see it travelling across the air – like the key fob that opens a car door or a cell phone text message. This energy is inside us too, and Dr. Val might tap on acupressure points in the body to release it and rebalance the body.

Dr. Val has lived in England and Canada and was in the education field before she became a therapist, as a resource room teacher and sports coach. She believes the one-to-one rapport she used with students is what helps her reach children today, and to create a sense of respect for people of any age. Being genuine, having positive regard, establishing trust, and empathy for the client are some elements of Carl Rogers’ person-centered approach that inspire congruence with patients. This Carl’s emphasis on the relationship revolutionized the American Psychological approach, which at the time emphasized psychodynamic and behaviorist method. It makes him one of Dr. Val’s idols. Another Carl that influenced her was Carl Jung. She embraces many of his concepts, such as archetypes (inborn tendencies resonating and driving basic human behavior), and his sense of connectedness across our big world– like when a butterfly flaps its wings in Japan and it is felt elsewhere.

Dr. Val says some techniques that work with children can also break through to adults. Someone might be nervous about opening up to a therapist, but when you toss them a ball, or hand them a musical instrument, it’s not formal or intimidating anymore. Still, she has to tell clients things they don’t want to hear, like own up to the consequences of an impulsive choice or negative behavior, or it’s to go off to rehab. She may have to be tough at times, but for the most part she likes to have fun, and loves bringing about change.

CUTV News will feature Dr. Valerie Kendall in an interview with Jim Masters on Wed, Aug 22 at 4:00pm EDT

The Coach For Lawyers John Allison to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

SAN RAFAEL, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, August 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The law attracts a certain type of person–driven, ambitious, competitive–but several studies have shown that more than 25 percent of practicing lawyers are stressed out and disillusioned. They are unable to find much personal satisfaction from their work, to say nothing of achieving the elusive work-life balance. They are not happy. In fact, according to a Johns Hopkins University study of more than 100 occupations, researchers found lawyers suffer dramatically elevated levels of clinical depression compared with the general population.

John Allison was fortunate to be one of the exceptions. After a successful and rewarding professional career as a trial lawyer and litigation manager, both in private practice and in-house with a Fortune 100 company, Allison has resolved to share what he’s learned as The Coach for Lawyers, so lawyers can experience the rewards and satisfaction the practice of law can offer.

“It’s easy for lawyers to work themselves to the point where they get totally burned out,” says Allison. “I had other interests outside of the law. If I was in trial, I would work long hours, but generally I would try to avoid working on weekends. I set boundaries around my professional time. I took vacations.”

Allison’s clients often seek guidance when navigating a transition. They might be unhappy in their current role and thinking about changing jobs or they might be wanting to shift from one practice area to another. Allison also helps lawyers deal with difficult people, whether they be colleagues, clients or adversaries. Allison coaches his clients through their process, giving them tools to deal more effectively with the situation they find themselves in.

“I especially enjoy seeing lawyers that I work with as a coach go from an unhappy place to a place where they are enthusiastic about what they’re doing and optimistic about their future,” says Allison.

Allison has also written three books about lawyers, the legal profession and the practice of law: Choosing Your Lawyer: An Insider's Practical Guide to Making a Really Good Choice; Transforming the Practice of Law: Reclaiming the Soul of the Legal Profession; and his most recent book The Art of Practicing Law: A Practical Guide for Lawyers.

“To satisfy your clients you have to understand what the client’s objectives are, how to develop a plan that is consistent with the client’s objectives, not what you want to have happen,” says Allison. “It’s about letting them know that you have their best interests at heart, you’re on their side, and you’re not letting your financial goals or other agenda get in the way. You’re really focusing on the client, I think that’s the key.”

A recent Pew Research Center study showed that 35 percent of the people in the United States believe that lawyers add little or nothing to the value of society. Allison is hoping to change that perception.

“I just really enjoy helping people be the best that they can be,” says Allison. “I can help lawyers enjoy the type of success and rewards that I did. And I’m not just talking about money. I’m talking about personal satisfaction. Practicing law can be a profoundly rewarding experience.”

CUTV News Radio will feature John Allison in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on August 22nd at 2pm EDT.

ORM (= Online Reputation Management) has become a crucial issue for sole attorney practitioners and small law firms.

Terik Hashmi Business Consultant (N/A:N/A)

Online Reputation Management is an issue that attorneys cannot disregard … The problems result from law schools cranking out too many lawyers and the internet developing alternatives to lawyer[s]”

— Terik Hashmi, Business Consultant and Lawyer

MIAMI BEACH, FL, UNITED STATES, August 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Attorney and Business Consultant Terik Hashmi taught a one-day seminar in Washington DC on July 8 at a convention hotel, specifically for lawyers on how to manage their Online Reputation.

Online Reputation Management (ORM) has become a major issue, especially for sole practitioners and small law firms. With today’s internet, it has become very easy for anybody, not just actual clients, to post negative information about lawyers. In fact, the overall impression is that most comments and reviews are at least in part negative. Combined with economic pressures, this has created an issue of utmost importance to legal practitioners.

“Online Reputation Management is an issue that attorneys cannot disregard,” explains Mr. Hashmi. “I have been in the profession long enough to have seen what has happened since the early 1990s. The problems for the profession result in large part from law schools cranking out too many lawyers, and the internet developing and creating free or low-cost alternatives to lawyer services such as free websites with all kinds of legal information.”

The about 30 participants had many questions and concerns, including:

-“What to do about negative comments on review sites such as Yelp.” Mr. Hashmi in general recommends not to voluntarily engage with such sites because there are always the so-called “vandals” who post negative information just for the sake of posting negative information (cyber vandalism). Previously, vandals spray-painted subway trains. Today they post negative comments on the internet.

-“I do not have time to keep up with the internet.” Mr. Hashmi responded that this attitude carries great risks as life on the internet goes on regardless. One may not even notice what information is being posted on the internet, and only wonder why income is going down. In many cases, the answer can be found by googling one’s name.

-“What to do if an attorney as been sanctioned by the bar or a court (reprimand/suspension).” Today, in the age of the internet, the attorney disciplinary system has become a serious problem especially for sole practitioners and small firms, as disciplinary sanctions such as reprimands or suspensions are published widely on the internet and never go away. Consumers “research” on the internet, meaning they run a Google search. Hundreds of attorneys are sanctioned every month by the disciplinary systems, and many bar associations publish these sanctions on their websites and in press releases. The result is that they appear at the very top of any Google search. This situation is aggravated by the fact that most attorneys are focused on running their law practice and have no positive information published to counterbalance the negative posts.

Mr. Hashmi has researched these issues for many months, and has interviewed many experts in online reputation management, reputation management companies, and practicing attorneys. He is preparing a book based on his research, which will be published in the coming weeks.

… what the internet has done to the entire profession … the internet took flight, creating lawyer-substitutes …”

— Terik Hashmi, Business Consultant & Attorney

MIAMI BEACH, FL, UNITED STATES, August 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — During the pre-publication reception at an art Galleria in the chic Garment District of Miami, Mr. Terik Hashmi announced that his newest book will be available soon on Amazon and other outlets.

“I noticed a particular need for more information about Online Reputation Management for Lawyers,” explained Mr. Hashmi at the event. “Being an attorney by training myself, I have seen first-hand what the internet has done to the entire profession. First of all, even while the economy was under pressure to cut costs in the 1990s, law schools continued to mint new lawyers. Then the internet took flight, creating lawyer-substitutes such as Legalzoom that increase the pressure on the profession. And as if that was not enough, now everybody can post negative opinions about attorneys anywhere on the internet, from Yelp to setting up a hate blog about lawyers. If you are a lawyer, how do you deal with that?”

Mr. Hashmi has spent months researching this book and conducting countless interviews with practicing attorneys and professionals in the area of Online Reputation Management (ORM). Among his findings were, as to Online Reputation Management, that most attorneys focus on comments posted about them rather than positive information in general. The result is that an attorney about whom a negative comment has been published attempts to rectify the situation, rather than publicizing positive information that will have a tendency to supersede any negative comment. The conclusion is that it is difficult to improve one’s reputation with online comments. There as to be substance that is recognized by search engines such as Google as "valuable" to other users. “Content is more important than Comment,” quipped Mr. Hashmi.

Another conclusion is that no practicing attorney can neglect his or her online reputation. Explains Mr. Hashmi: “Just one look at job ads on Craigslist shows you the economic pressure on the legal profession. You’ll see attorney jobs advertised at $22 or $25 per hour. It is hard to make a living at such rates with a $100,000 in student loans. If you add bad online reputation to the mix, the result is that you cannot make money in law. Thus, you must address your online reputation unless you chose to wear a scarlet letter in public and be broke.”

Mr. Hashmi thanked in particular his editor, Timeless Words. The book is expected to be available on www.amazon.com shortly.

“After reading about the 23rd school shooting in the first 5 months of 2018, I began to think about how much emotional and mental health are still not talked about, and how it affects our actions.” ”

— Retreat Founder, Liz Galloway

The winner will have have access to experts on site that focus on physical and emotional boundary breaking to create life changes. That includes a licensed therapist, yoga and wellness coaches, outdoor experts and guides, meditation, healthy food, relaxation, presentations,
culture, tours, and a world of experience.

Submissions are being taken through the website at WildAdventures.Life, and allows people to share their critical voice and personal story by submitting a 300 word essay or video about why they should attend the Wild Adventure retreat, and what they want to get out of it. This is open to anyone over the age of 18 online at under the scholarship application.

“Sometimes I have bigger dreams than I have resources.” states Galloway “But making an impact and giving back are part of our business model, and I believe the collective impact of people can make a difference. If only 475 people gave $10 we would cover a scholarship for someone who needs it.” People can donate to the scholarship online or get involved on the website giving page.

Wild Adventure Retreats believes by harnessing the collective power of individuals, more communities and organizations can make a difference. They measure this impact starting with one person at a time. The retreat is designed to help people make real changes in emotional, mental and physical health, and partners with key influencers to make that difference. Scholarship submissions and donations are open now for the 2019 retreat. Apply at
