My STORY

WHO IS TAMELA?

Bank Your Story

Several years ago, I wrote and finished a full-length book.  It took my years and involved hours, days, and months pouring over research, finding great examples, and honing my writing skills.  And then…when it was finally finished, I chose not to publish it. What?  Had I lost my mind…well, yes, there’s that possibility for sure….smile…but seriously, I chose to refocus my energies (and Yes, I will publish it).

Why am I telling you this?  Because in the process of writing the book, I came to one realization:  “This is a lot of work and not everyone has the time and opportunity to write a full-length book!” At that moment, I had the idea to help people publish their real-life stories.  I thought of all of the friends and acquaintances with whom I’d sat over lunch and heard about a pivotal time that effected the rest of their life.  I was always inspired.  I wanted them to share their story.  Many of them have and they are in this blog.

Some have had Pivotal Career Changes, like Cathy, the attorney and Susan, the doctor.

Some had Transformational Moments like Edgar when he confronted his nemesis or Christina Martinez, when she confronted her failures.

Some, like Michael Graham, struggled to win back his integrity.  Others, like Quintin Guinn found his integrity cost him his job.

Some had incredible challenges that led to victories like Angela Gabel’s, who overcame with the most amazing Can Do spirit, in spite of no functional arms or legs.  Or my own time of challenge with Alex, with whom I worked so diligently, hoping to inspire.

Some had unexpected breakthroughs when the time they spent developing their skills finally paid off.  People like Jamie Hingtgen, who became a decision-making tycoon; Dale and Tony, whose skills won them a business; or Pelham, who started blogging at 72.

When I get enough stories to compile them into a book, I will publish it.  This is a labor of love and any profit will be plowed back into the next book or donated primarily to charity.  My purpose is to inspire and uplift the writer and the reader.

As a writer, you get to be “published” and see your name in print.  I will gladly include a reference to your business if that will help, so you will gain some visibility from it.  If you want to remain anonymous, that is okay too (just let me know).

Our joint purpose is to inspire, instruct, and give people real-life examples so they are on fire with a Can-Do Spirit!  If you would like to join me in this endeavor, please download the Guidelines and Requirements and read all the Legalese stuff that my Mr. Lawyer told me I needed.  😉

Stories inspire, transform, and change lives.  There is no greater power than a great example, especially one that we can identify with.

Here’s to a mutual endeavor to inspire the world!  Let’s do it together and Make it Happen!
