New video series by Brendon Burchard

I have been enjoying the informative and inspiring teachings of Brendon Burchard for a couple of years.

He is offering these new videos for his Experts Academy program: “If you wanted to share your life’s story and knowledge with the world (and get paid for it), how would you begin? How are all these authors, speakers, coaches, marketers, and online thought leaders monetizing their advice and content?”

“Writing is so difficult, that if it doesn’t heal you in the doing of it it isn’t worth the trouble.”That is a quote by massage therapist, author, artist and teacher Cynthia Waring.

In her book and one-woman play, both titled “Bodies Unbound”, she relates the story of her life and growth as a therapist and artist, her journey of self-discovery and healing from childhood trauma and abuse.
