A published author

Yesterday I was standing in a Grade 10 classroom talking to students about my journey to become a published author.  Sharing my message about grit, resilience, embracing failure, finding your gift and never giving up.   It reminded me of a short time ago when I was...

Cheated or blessed?

When we wake up in the morning, do we feel cheated or blessed?  Do our thoughts land on the fact that we didn’t get enough sleep or we didn’t make good choices with what we ate yesterday or we didn’t finish what we started?  Or do we feel lucky that...

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
