The most consequential teacher

What a year it’s been. Graduations, milestones, new jobs and fresh starts. As with every year that came before it, change was the only guarantee. It was the most consequential teacher. The strongest stimulus for growth. And it happened in tiny increments –...

Imaginary tales

For as long as I can remember, I loved the library. In elementary school, my mom, peeking out from behind the book stacks, would watch me follow the librarian around from section to section, asking for one more story for this week’s haul. I would leave with a...

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
