That moment right before you send your sweet baby manuscript to your publisher.

I'm celebrating a big milestone today, and I'm asking for your help!

First, a milestone...

I just hit send on the second draft of my manuscript for my editor. 

October 5th, 2021 is the street date for my new book:

((((( GLOW )))))

4 Paths to Lead with Soul, Connect Deeply, and Light Up the Darkness

About the book. I partnered with Page Two books— who designed and published one of my favorite books, The Coaching Habit (a juggernaut success written by my friend & coaching superhero Michael Bungay Stanier.)  

I’m so impressed with Page Two's talent and passion. They have been incredible to work with.

Permission to Glow has been a dream long-in-the-making. It’s a meditation on timeless yoga teachings, through the lens of modern organizational leadership and entrepreneurship. 

The book’s goal is to create daily practices that drive meaning and fulfillment. There are plenty of robots, unicorns, lightning bolts, and pop culture references to get the medicine down. ;)

Modern leadership has benefitted beautifully from Buddhist teachings around mindfulness and MBSR.

And now, there's room for 
more yoga in the mix.

From the intro:

"The leaders I coach don’t need permission to do or accomplish more. Their next horizons live inside themselves and extend outward in every direction. 

We stand in awe together, discovering that life and business are infinitely expansive to the degree we’re willing to give ourselves 4 Permissions."


This project stretches me in all the beautiful, necessary ways. As an author and entrepreneur, a soon to be book marketer, and (my long overdue) breakthrough in RECEIVING

Can you relate?

Books are such a massive undertaking. 

So, I'm inviting you into the kitchen!


What is the
Circuit Board?

I’m assembling a group of book insiders, advisors and ambassadors. 

This is to build community around the book, connect you with other leaders, and to gather your valuable insights— on Permission to Glow’s development and marketing strategy.

  • We’ll Zoom every 6 weeks or so, starting in January.

  • Learn from members of my editing and design team and fellow authors.

  • Members of The Circuit Board (who have consistently participated) will be thanked in the book’s acknowledgments, have priority access to all sorts of fun bonuses around The 4 Permissions™, and will also receive other Magic and ephemera by mail.

Your fingerprints are the most exciting piece of the book.
 I want you to read it and see your buttery paw prints all over it. 

Fun fact
: My son Leon and I are banned from touching all remote controls because POPCORN. 

The Circuit Board will be win-win. 
It’s an opportunity to collaborate and offer input on something that will impact many leaders. For this author, it’s the perfect structure to show up prepared for

I am so geeked to share what we’ve been working on, both in my writing, the learning experiences we’re designing around the book, and with my clients.
