Be Inspired to ‘Bring Out the Gutsy in You’
Are you ready to take the next gutsy step in your life? I’m hosting an event in Orange County on Sept. 26 that will inspire you to act on that dream you’ve been holding inside.
I’m thrilled that author and intrepid traveler Marybeth Bond has agreed to be my keynote speaker for this launch party, which will introduce the My Gutsy Story® Anthology – the first book in the “Gutsy Anthology” series.
Marybeth Bond is a National Geographic author, contributor to LA Times, USA Today, PBS, CNN and guest on Oprah.
When: September 26, 2013.
Where: Regency South Coast Village 3, 1561 W. Sunflower Avenue, Santa Ana, Calif. (MAP)
Time: 6 to 9 p.m. (Photos of where we shall be here.)
There is no charge for the event, whose theme is “Bring Out the Gutsy in You.” I hope attendees will be inspired to step out of their comfort zone, take risks and follow their passion.
Marybeth, known as “The Gutsy Traveler,” is the author of 12 National Geographic travel books, including two Gutsy Women books. She’s traveled to more than 100 countries. Two summers ago, she biked 3,115 miles across the United States with her 22-year-old daughter and raised $52,000 for women’s osteoporosis research. Marybeth’s goal is to encourage women to step out of their comfort zones and travel beyond the group tour.
You’ll also hear from a panel of authors featured in the My Gutsy Story® Anthology.
Moderator: Marla Miller, Author and founder of The Marketing Muse workshops
- Sonia Marsh: Award-winning author and founder of the My Gutsy Story® series.
- Linda Joy Myers: President of the National Association of Memoir Writers and co-president of the Women’s National Book Association, SF.
- Jason Matthews: Hosts a weekly Indie Authors Google+ Hangout, and is an e-publishing expert.
Marla Miller, will serve as moderator, asking questions about how to make “gutsy” happen. I’ll be one of the panelists, along with Linda Joy Myers, and Jason Matthews.
A percentage of the proceeds from book sales will go to WomanSage, which provides opportunities, experience and education to enhance and empower all women.
