The secret to surviving and even thriving in a down economy is to push your self-starter button, according to author and corporate consultant Dr. Julie Miller. In her newest book, “Secrets of Self-Starters: 48 Amazing Stories to Ignite the Self-Starter in YOU!,” She shares the wisdom and lessons learned from real people who kick-started their dreams and skyrocketed to the top of their game. The book features men and women of all backgrounds that have impacted their own communities in extraordinary ways. And I am THRILLED to be one of the featured self-starters!
During her travels as a speaker and consultant, Dr. Miller was drawn to individuals with “that self-starter spark,” as she calls it. She coined the term, “traititudes,” defining which key traits and attitudes—combined with desire—are crucial. By using traititudes that capitalize on their strengths, her forty-eight self-starters propelled themselves to success, despite little-known but often huge obstacles and setbacks. (Yes, you can read all about my early years working at the convent – yup – you’ll have to get the book now!)
Readers will recognize several high profile names among the featured individuals, along with Northwest notables such as Jack Canfield of Chicken Soup for the Soul, Francia Russell and Kent Stowell, Directors of the Pacific Northwest Ballet, and Dr. Pepper Schwartz a relationship expert.
