Have you suffered anxiety and depression, but later discovered joy and connection? You want to write a book, but you wonder if anyone will want to hear your story. Will anyone relate?
You aren’t the only one.
One of our authors, Kimberly Pope-Robinson, experienced the same. Kim was a successful woman veterinarian. The little-known secret about the veterinarian industry is it has one of the highest suicide rates of all professions.
At one point, Kim herself was about to become a statistic.
After years of success, she found herself depressed and disconnected. One day, she reached for a bottle of pills, ready to take her own life.
But something stopped her, and she put the pills down.
From there, Kim went on a healing journey of recovery to reclaim her life. She discovered a path to joy, inspiration and connection.
We assisted in turning her wisdom into her book, The Unspoken Life: Recognize Your Passion, Embrace Imperfection, and Stay Connected.
In the months after the book’s publication, Kim got texts and emails nearly daily from veterinarians saying they, too, wanted to take their life. But after reading her book, they wouldn’t.
Veterinarian offices are buying her book by the dozens, and she gets invited to speak all around the world.
We assisted Kim to write, design and publish her book.
This woman veterinarian is an inspiration for all authors who have suffered anxiety and depression, but now have a healing journey of recovery to share.
Whatever your message is, it comes from your truth and that is what makes your book worthy.
Are you ready to write your book, and share it with the world?
