October 2014 - In This Issue:
Oak Communications logo

Since January 2008, I have written a monthly story (approximately 80 so far) to go along with each issue of the Oak Communications e-newsletter. 


Cultivating a Mindful Life book cover

Cultivating a Mindful Life is a collection of 35 of those stories which I have edited and compiled into an e-book. This e-book is now available for Free (until November 15, 2014; after that the price will be $2.99) from Smashwords for reading on your iPad, Kindle, Nook, computer, or other e-reading device.


Check the Smashwords FAQ for assistance on how to download the book to your device. 


Feel free to forward this offer to a friend. Please share your thoughts about the book on the Smashwords website or other e-book sites.  


As always, I welcome your comments via email and phone as well.  


The beautiful book cover was designed by Megan Barra.

On the memo line of checks recently written to me, one of my clients wrote "wisdom" last month and "grounding" this month. Would you like some wisdom or grounding?

Or perhaps you want to feel more satisfaction from your work but are not sure how to make that happen?

Are you feeling overwhelmed with everything on your plate? or

Would you like to kick it up a notch in your role as a leader or as a creative person?

Contact me for a complimentary coaching consultation to learn how we might work together for your success and happiness.
