News, Authors, Race Car Drivers, and More…

Last week was so busy I haven’t time to check in here and I see I now have new followers! hooray! welcome! since we’re so small now, I can do that, yes? : )
We just got our first press coverage! The First30Days.com did a profile and then sent out a newsletter about Epiphany yesterday. I was interviewed for the profile but had no idea she was going to feature us in a newsletter that she sends out every day. I received mine at 11:11am – the 11:11 phenomenon has been something that I have experienced over the past several years…I’m sure some of you know what I’m talking about and have experienced it, too…but anyway, that is a story for another day…if you’ve never checked out the First30Days.com site — RUN! (to it, that is…) It’s wonderful and has SO much great information…her daily newletters are perfect in execution I have to say – short, sweet, to the point and full of great information…here are the links to the Epiphany stuff and you can explore the site – signing up for the newsletter is super easy, too…

I also did 3 new interviews last week with people with amazing epiphanies…Mark Thornton, who left his job of COO of JP Morgan Europe to become a meditation teacher and expert and wrote the best-selling book, Meditation in a New York Minute: Super Calm for the Super Busy, after his greatest epiphany; Ali Afshar a renowned, world-record holding race-car driver; and Andrea Buchanan, a director/producer/writer and author of the wonderful book, Note to Self.
I filmed all of them so their videos hopefully will be going up on the site in the next month or so…I wish they could go up sooner but I am leaving for Texas and New Orleans tomorrow to do interviews and see my family and friends and experience some Texas heat! (Everyone thinks I’m crazy but I miss hot summers – LA gets hot but not like Texas or New York and somehow it hasn’t even felt like it’s been summer to me this year and now it’s almost over – so I’m heading south to try to claim some summer magic before we enter fall…) BUT I think some of my other videos that we’ve been working on will be able to be posted in the next week or so, so I’ll keep you posted! Hope you are having a magical summer and enjoy these last lazy (yeah, right) days of August…
