November 30th

Two people who made a big impression on me celebrated their birthdays today.  British Prime Minister Winston Churchill was born 144 years ago on November 30th, 1874.  The author of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain, was born on the same day in 1835, 183...
I can’t believe the day has finally come. I am a published author!
I decided in the year 2000 to write a book and I made a goal of 100 rejection letters because Dr. Seuss got 43 for his first story. To date I am at 32 rejections for various manuscripts. Then on January 1, 2016 I started a weekly blog which led to my becoming a blog contributor for The Huffington Post. I decided to turn the first year of my blog into a book and here we are.
The Treasure You Seek is about following your heart, believing in yourself beyond reason, embracing failure and knowing that you are enough. It includes inspirational stories about famous failures, cultural icons, world leaders and regular folks like you and me. The goal is to remind us that we have all we need to be the change we wish to see. A perfect read for graduates from elementary school through university, people starting their career, changing jobs or retiring, friends going through a medical crisis, new parents, empty nesters and anyone who wants to be inspired.
I would be so thrilled if you would consider buying a copy for yourself and your friends and sharing it in your networks. Each mini-story is like a sip of coffee to perk up your day. I would love to know the date of your favourite entry. Post about it on Facebook or Instagram tagging #TheTreasureYouSeek and #SiobhanKukolic
