I’ve been a tad MIA lately and I apologize!  If you haven’t been following me personally on Facebook, you may not be aware that I wrote & published my first children’s book, “It’s Just Me…Brooklyn” (http://www.itsjustmebrooklyn.com ).  The book is about my daughter, Brooklyn, and her two cats as she navigates life on her own and full of pride.  Wow!  What a whirlwind adventure it’s been.  I attended BEA and BookCon in NYC at the end of May where the book came out right after that which has taken me on a whirlwind tour with the book.  During that time I decided what my next series of books will be (yes, I’m officially an author!) and with being a Holistic Health Coach, health is going to be the focus.  In the eyes of my 4 year old, Brooklyn.  Of course the cats will also be a part of the books too ;-).

Most women I’ve worked with who have children ask me “How can I get my family to eat this way?”  My beliefs, values, and focus when it comes to health can apply to children, spouses, parents, the whole family.  It’s not a rocket science formula or complicated diet.  So after a while I thought “I need to do something about this” and started another journey in May.  I obtained another health coaching certification from the Dr. Sears Wellness Institute to work with Families & Children.  Where my next series will focus on holistic health for your child and family- with Brooklyn’s fun, independent and vibrant sense of style.  These books will be a fabulous tool for your family.  We need all the help we can get at times.  Even I do!

With this shift, I was also honored to be a featured panelist at BEA and BookCon with the fabulous Susan Verde who wrote “I am Yoga”, “I am Peace”, “You and Me”, “My Kicks”, “The Water Princess”, and “The Museum”.  We discussed what health means to us for the mind, body, and soul.  Susan and I learned a lot from one another and I consider her a new friend.  I was so honored to sit right next to her and meet such a generous, kind, and healthy soul.  She ignited my passion for these new books even more.

So when do the books come out?  2018 my friend!  I have already started writing them and am just so excited to get them into your hands.  There will be 4 books focusing on all areas of health where you can buy the books as a set or individually.  Stay tuned for more!

Am I still working with women’s health?  I am still passionate about it and will be doing my 8-Week Powering Through Perimenopause course starting September 13th at Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove.  You can register with the hospital starting August 28th.  Other than the course, my focus is going to be the books and speaking where I’m simply hitting “pause” on one-on-one coaching.  But know you can always reach out to me with questions you have or if you need a referral.

XO and I look forward to sharing all my books with you and your family!  Follow me on Instagram (itsjustme_brooklyn) or Facebook (It’s Just Me, Brooklyn) to stay up to date on what’s going on and events I’m hosting.  Or simply go on my book website (http://www.itsjustmebrooklyn.com) to sign up to be Brooklyn’s penpal to receive all information directly to your inbox.  Thank you for your support, understanding, and I wish you all the best.  I will still be blogging on here btw ;-).

Sincerely,

Michelle
