His Heart I Hold Book Excerpt:

In a Brothers Eyes: the Brant McLachlan Story (2005) introduced us to a small town in Mississippi and a family so relatable that they became part of our own. We were captivated by Brants charm, drive, personality and his relationship with his life-long love. His Heart I Hold is a unique love story that explores not only the strength of the human spirit and the fragility of the human heart, but the definition of love itself. Jennifer and Christians story is one of love born of tragedy. When Brants life was cut tragically short, Jennifer lost her husband, and Christian lost his brother. They never imagined falling in love, but, as they navigated their way through shared loss, a friendship caught fire, and while Jennifer struggled with the idea that she could ever love another, Christian battled deep feelings of betrayal. Together, they learned lessons of selflessness, loyalty, respect, empathy and understanding that helped them ultimately define love and the beauty of its complexities, while realizing one common truth its his heart they hold. Its been a decade since they told us Brants story, now Jennifer and Christian McLachlan share their story in their own words.

Set in the Deep South, In a Brother's Eyes: the Brant McLachlan Story takes place in a small Mississippi town where Friday night high school football is king, families stick together and true love is supposed to conquer all.

In a Brother's Eyes tells a story of triumph on the football field, but it is primarily a love story. It tells the story of a small, country town and their love affair with a high school quarterback whose outgoing personality and natural charm causes a town to fall in love with him, a family to adore him, and people to root for him even after he makes a decision that will threaten to destroy his relationship with his life-long girlfriend. In a Brother's Eyes is an emotional roller coaster ride full of laughter and tears. Throughout the course of the novel, Brant McLachlan's love for Jennifer Smith faces the ultimate test and leads to an emotional struggle that begs the question: does true love always prevail?

He decides to leave England for the only place where he can realize his dream of becoming an actor - America.We then follow the author on his numerous Hollywood adventures, watching as he glides smoothly from forgery to pornography to crashing the Academy Awards under the alias of a nominated screenwriter, and eventually stumbles into acting in the highest-grossing movie of all time, Titanic.

A Life s Journey Book Excerpt:

A Life’s Journey is a story about what led me to a spiritual level of enlightened comfort and joy. The components of the book discuss a variety of questions and thought-provoking ideas that can motivate a person to achieve the higher levels of Maslow’s theory of self-actualization. Throughout the text are stories and examples that demonstrate how some influences can hinder an individual’s positive upward movement. There are stories based on spiritual practices, research, and events that clarified the whys of my journey in life. Writing an autobiography with a twist reinforced how I traveled through life. Writing this book helped reinforce my understanding of what the benefits of spiritual development are, and it helped me learn how to appreciate a more holistic way of living. Individuals who have an interest in a spiritualistic way of believing in a higher power will benefit from this book. It discusses aspects of spiritual enlightenment with emphasis on character traits and ideas that can either influence life’s journey or hinder it. This work will give the reader life stories and issues that many folks deal with—sometimes with no success or comfort. There are references and stories about issues from early childhood to adolescence, to middle age, and to later life experiences that show how experiences can motivate a person to move forward or fear moving ahead. A Life’s Journey is designed to give the reader encouragement and reinforcement for life’s pathway that can be appreciated at any age.

Authentic Gravitas Book Excerpt:

Have a powerful impact—by being more like yourself rather than less, through this groundbreaking approach taught at the London School of Economics and companies worldwide. Organizational psychologist and executive coach Rebecca Newton has found that even her most successful clients still want more of one quality: gravitas. They want their words to carry weight, to have a positive, lasting impact on those around them. Gravitas can seem like an elusive, intangible quality, but it isn't about adopting the style of another or being someone you're not. Newton draws on extensive research and experience coaching business leaders to show what underpins authentic gravitas and how anyone can develop it. She presents the counterintuitive idea that in order to be valued, we shouldn't spend all our time and energy trying to stand out from the crowd; instead, we should focus on the crowd--connecting with others and understanding their needs in order to make a significant difference. Newton debunks the myths of gravitas and gives readers the practical tools to develop it by: * Minimizing the gaps between intention, action, and impact * Remaining true to yourself while adapting to work successfully with people who have different styles * Choosing to be courageous regardless of how confident you feel--as you engage in courageous behaviors, confidence naturally builds Authentic gravitas extends beyond commanding presence in the room during a key meeting; it's about the small things you can do beforehand, during, and in all the spaces in between--to be someone who genuinely adds substantive value in the workplace and beyond.

Buddha Bowls Book Excerpt:

Beautiful and inspiring one-dish meals in a bowl! Buddha bowls, occasionally called “bliss bowls,” “nourish bowls,” or “power bowls,” are the ultimate in one-dish meals. You start with a base of whole grains, rice, noodles, or legumes. Then you layer on a generous assortment of cooked or raw vegetables. Finally, you top the veggies with a boost of protein and then a dressing, sauce, or broth. Buddha bowls are an easy, healthy meal that can be ready in minutes and that you can have for breakfast, lunch, or dinner—or, if you like, all three! The Buddha bowl concept is loosely based on guidance from Chinese medicine: a meal should have vegetables, protein, and grain. Typically, in a Buddha bowl there is a high ratio of ingredients to broth or sauce and the ingredients are left whole or in large pieces, and not blended, minced, or pureed. Although it is Asian in inspiration, a Buddha bowl can be made with a variety of ingredients from just about anywhere on the planet. Kelli Foster, who writes about food for the popular website The Kitchn, serves up in these pages an amazing variety of Buddha bowl ideas, each one vibrant with color, alive with flavor, and oh-so-comforting to eat. Can you think of a heartier way to start the day than with a Blackberry Millet Breakfast Bowl, a Coconut Quinoa Breakfast Bowl, or a Chai-Spiced Multigrain Porridge Bowl, just three among many breakfast bowl ideas? Later in the day, for cozy meals with loved ones, how about Warm Autumn Chicken and Wild Rice Bowls, Sesame Tuna Bowls, or Lamb Kebab Bowls? For company, Lentil and Smoked Salmon Nicoise Bowls or Miso Noodle Bowls with Stir-Fried Beef will delight your guests. There are many vegan recipes, too, from Cauliflower Falafel Power Bowls to Spicy Sesame Tofu and Rice Bowls and beyond. A special chapter on fruit bowls has ideas for power-snacking, as well as for meals. Buddha bowls are elegant in appearance and flavor, but surprisingly easy to make—a perfect marriage of convenience and good taste. If you haven't tried them yet, now you have a great reason!

On the Road Not Taken Book Excerpt:

On the Road Not Taken is a memoir about the transformational power of music. It begins with a boy growing up in a small town on the Kent coast in the 1970s, who learns to play the guitar and dreams of heading out on the open road with a head full of songs. But when the moment comes to make the choice he is not brave enough to try and do it for a living. Time passes but the desire to explain the world through music never goes away. And as the years go by it gets harder and harder to risk looking like a fool, of doing the very thing he would most like to do, of actually being himself. Eventually, thirty-five years later, when it feels like time is running out, he walks out onto a stage in front of 500 people and begins to sing again. What follows is an extraordinary period of self-discovery as he plays pubs, clubs, theatres and festivals, overcoming anxiety to experience the joy of performance.

Accelerating Automatic Book Excerpt:

I believe that any competent team can achieve high-performance. With this book I have attempted to map a simple model which I’ve used to help accelerate team-journeys to automatic excellence. I am convinced that any average leader can command respect and champion a cause if they understand how to elevate their influence. This book outlines a “3M” formula which distils the lessons I’ve learned working with elite teams in a dozen countries, numerous industries, and over several decades! For a leader or team to transform from Average to Automatic, a shift is needed in 3 areas: Mindset, Method, and Mood [3M]. Find out what “3M” Means and Master a new reality by applying some of the ideas contained within. Winning sports teams and elite organisations exemplify the 3M formula. Several of these examples are referenced in this book. The connection between each M as it relates to leadership, teamwork, and discipline is also unpacked. Accelerate from where you are today, to where 3M-excellence is Automatic.

Nspired Book Excerpt:

One of my goals for 2016 was to publish a LinkedIn post every week of the year. My original intent was to promote to the oil-and-gas industry how performance coaching helps project teams, while providing nuggets of information about accelerated improvement, inspiring leadership, and innovative collaboration to my LinkedIn network in general. The reality is that I discovered my calling. I found that as the year progressed, I had more ideas, not fewer, about what subject matter to explore next. I found that the words just flowed onto the pages and that I looked forward to publishing something new each week. It was not a chore; it was an indulgence! More importantly, my articles seemed to generate discussion and attract a positive response. This made me realize that there was a demand for what I enjoy offering the communityperformance coaching insights from the front line. This book is the first installment of fifty-two insights, but I intend to publish again and again. My weekly inspiration is unlikely to wane any time soon.
