Lost Tapes: Zach Obront - Book In A Box

July 18, 2017

If you have a great book in you, but don’t have the time to write it, we can help. Our process takes you from idea to professionally published book, in only about 12 hours of your time. And all you have to do is talk.

Here’s a quick rundown of how it works:

➨ We Turn Your Idea Into An Outline: Our professional outliners spend about 2–3 hours on the phone with you, clarify your goals, refine your book idea and get crystal clear on precisely what your book will say. They’ll use that information to craft a detailed outline that contains all of your book ideas in a simple, clear format.

➨ We Interview You And Get Your Wisdom Out: One of our world-class editors—who range in experience from professional journalists to bestselling authors—will go through your outline, interviewing you and getting the knowledge and wisdom you want in your book out of your head and into an audio recording. Think of it like recording the rough draft of your audiobook, before you write the book.

➨ We Turn Your Transcript Into Book Manuscript: The same editor will work from the written transcript of the interviews to create a book manuscript that expresses your ideas, in your voice. This is not ghostwriting; the content is completely yours, both the ideas expressed and the words used to express them are from you.

➨ We Publish It: The biggest thing that separates ‘real’ books from those that feel amateur is the design. Your book will look and feel exactly like the ones published by major authors. Your book will be available to purchase from all the major online retailers in ebook, paperback, and in bookstores in hardcover.

➨You're The Author, And You Own Everything: Since the ideas and words in the book are yours and not ours, you're the sole author. And since you pay us for this service, you own all rights and royalties.

Lost Tapes: Pat Mussieux - Taking Out The Trash

June 20, 2017

Queen of Compromise

I know you’re wondering about the trash bag. But before we go there we should talk about what got me to that point.

I know you’ve compromised in your life. We all do. But all those compromises add up, moment by moment, taking us further and further from our dreams and even our simplest expectations.

I was the Queen of Compromise.

In my marriage, his dreams came before mine. With my stepchildren, their wishes ruled the day. In my business, I filled my time with less-than-ideal clients. With my finances, I accepted less than I was worth.

As I grew more and more distant from my true self, drama in my life reached almost tragic proportions.

When I had a decade of experience in my career and began growing in leaps and bounds through independent work in mindset training and facilitation for The Pacific Institute, I made the ultimate compromise.

I traded that amazing work environment and experiences for a local JOB (with a capital J) in an effort to save my marriage by being home every night and focusing on marriage counseling.

EPIC fail. Enough said.


Embrace Your Fear. Evolve. Learn to Fly.
Don’t compromise by waiting.

Breaking Free

So that’s when I found myself, walking out of my 22-year marriage with the equivalent of my life in a trash bag.

I made a decision to take responsibility. I made a decision to take responsibility for my personal happiness. I made a decision to take responsibility for my financial situation. I made a decision to take responsibility for my life.

These were tough decisions involving loss. I left behind my dream home and 2 precious little dogs for a furnished basement apartment. I was quite close to my dying father-in-law, and over the next few years I lost both my in-laws, my best friend to cancer, a premature grandson, and supported my stepson and daughter-in-law throughout the long-term hospitalization of my other infant (twin) grandson.

I wasn’t compromising anymore. I began taking the steps towards a new life – a transformation and re-invention – and started with a Vision Board that included, among other things, LOTS of travel destinations that I never would have experienced in my old life (with my ex-husband).

Around the Globe

At the end of this painful and most difficult period – during which my life, my relationships and that J.O.B. were falling away – I decided to leave the West coast and move across the country – to a city where I knew no one, had no contacts, no clients, no business. I had a dream. I had a vision. I would step back into the work I believe I am here to do – Speaking and Coaching.

Before he passed away, my father-in-law generously helped me to buy a condo so that I would have a proper roof over my head. In the process of selling that condo, I saw a sign. A real sign – a flyer, fact! – that advertised a great deal for a trip around the world via private jet. Here was my ideal opportunity to visit ten amazing countries in just one month!

So off I went. It was a HUGE step. I knew that when I returned from the trip I’d be returning to a new city and begin the road to new friends, new clients and a new business.


Walking away from my ex-husband was a lesson in learning to stop compromising. At age 55, when I made the move, it was a lesson in embracing fear!

By moving to the East Coast, one of the blessings was to reconnect with my mother, from whom I had been estranged for over 10 years. The estrangement happened in a time when I made a conscious decision to improve the quality of my life – and remove toxic people from my ‘circle’. My mother was one of those people. That was the right decision at that time. But when I made the decision to leave my marriage and my husband, my mother was one of the first people to phone me and offer support. I knew then that when I made the big move to my new life that my mother, who then (at age 82) lived just 4 hours north of where I was located, I was as open to reconciling as I was going to be. There was no fear – no tension – no stress – no barriers. I stepped into this renewed relationship with as much energy and enthusiasm as I had for my new life. We connected in a way that had not ever existed between us and that strong bond existed to the day she died two years ago. What a blessing for me!

The first year of my new life was extremely lonely and difficult since I had no friends, no clients, and no contacts.

But I was EVOLVING all the while.

I built the new business I’d dreamed of, without compromise. I’ve been nominated, for the past 3 years, for the Canadian Woman Entrepreneur of the Year award and have won 4 STEVIE Awards for Women in Business (Gold in the Category of Female Entrepreneur of the Year in Canada for 2012, Bronze for Female Entrepreneur of the Year in Canada for 2013, GOLD for Female Executive of the Year in Canada for 2014, and Bronze for Female Entrepreneur of the Year in Canada for 2015). I’ve hosted my own local radio show for 4 years and now host a live talk show on local TV interviewing successful women entrepreneurs and sharing their stories. I’ve written 3 books – the latest of which is ‘Stop Compromising and Make All the Money You Want! A Do-It-Yourself Guide for Starting Up and Starting Over.’


Evolution has been painful.
It’s been beautiful. It’s been necessary.
I grew and changed, and I broke free.

Embrace Your Fear. Evolve. Learn to Fly. Don’t compromise by waiting.

Lost Tapes: Mikal Nielsen - The Quick Fix To Any Problem

June 13, 2017

If we ask his three children who Mikal is, the answer is simple: Dad's weird!

If we ask his wife, you can find her answer in their co-authored book Intimately Entwined.

Most importantly he sits outside of the box. He himself would say, "If anyone ever accuses me of being normal, I'm going to get very offended".

So who is he - really?

In short, he's a guy who is passionate about two things:

  1. Growth - his own and facilitating it for others
  2. Figuring out how things work - with a main focus on life and human beings

He tried a number of jobs, explored a couple of careers (banking and computers), but for the last 20+ years he has followed his calling as a life coach, helping people to get more life out of life, more business out of business and more love out of relationships.

He was born in Denmark but considers himself an earth citizen, not belonging to any country, culture, religion or political orientation. He has travelled to well over 50 countries, through which time he met his New Zealand wife to be (this is also covered in their book Intimately Entwined).

Mikal has written two books and continues to write. Check out his Author page for the latest updates.

He has created his own meditation system for busy people in the modern world called Modern Meditation.

He hosts his own WebTV Show 'Awareness - The Key to the Driver Seat'. You can watch past episodes here.

He does individual coaching through Skype, offering both his Living on Purpose 3 week program and individually tailored coaching programs. 

And then his favourite: Face to face coaching and presenting:

  • Individuals
  • Business owners, managers & teams
  • Couples
  • Events/Workshops
  • Public Speaking and Key Note Speaking

Other than this, Mikal is a husband, dad, meditator and cafe goer. And, he quite enjoys spending hours in the kitchen experimenting with food, to the delight or dismay of the family depending on what way the experiments go. Oh, by the way, he is also a barefoot runner, just to add to the weirdness.

If you want to know more, get in touch with the man himself. He'll happily answer questions by phone, Skype or face to face.

Stories told through poetry, film, theatre, advertising, art, dance and even food and wine never cease to enchant me. To me, stories make life worth living as they provoke, inspire – and just plain delight the pants off a captivated audience!”

Lost Tapes: Mara Glazer - Cut The Crap

May 16, 2017


I used to be a miserable employee to a corporate job in the NYC fashion industry (I say “miserable” because making $35k a year in the BIG APPLE should be illegal!). I had no money. I lived in a strange city with no friends, and to top it off, my boss was a b*tch (more like a MEGA B*TCH! to be exact!) Luckily, I don’t have to worry about that anymore. Now, I own a business that allows for me to spend time with my amazing friends and family when I WANT to, travel the world as I please, and work through my bucket list on the regular. (You can learn more about my bucket list at the bottom of this page.)

Now, I don’t say this to brag. Not at all. I say this to let you know what’s possible because if a 30-something year old girl like me can learn to do it, a girl who struggled through school so much that some of my teachers straight out gave up on me (true story! – Actually I’ll share it below on this page), then you can learn to do it, too.

In 2003 I had my spine fused with two titanium rods, and then in 2009, because of all of the pressure and tension in my back from the rods, and also from the crazy stress of my job, I actually tore my spine. I couldn’t walk. The furthest I could go was from my bedroom to my bathroom, and then from my bathroom back to my bedroom. I couldn’t drive. I certainly couldn’t work. And there was really not that much I could do. It was in that moment that I knew that I couldn’t have a 9-5 job anymore, and I couldn’t work for someone else anymore, because I needed the freedom to take care of myself when I needed to.



Somehow in 2009, after 6 months of convincing, I talked my dad, Bill Glazer, into allowing me to work for him at the company he founded, Glazer-Kennedy Insider’s Circle (now known as GKIC), a company he built into the largest provider of marketing and money-making information to small business owners around the globe. Some say he’s a legend. (To me, he’s just my Pops!) Some say I’m part of the lucky sperm club! (But if you know me, you know I worked damn hard to be where I am today! No handouts. No hall passes. I had to earn my spot!) He gave me one job: figure out how to make money with social media, OR I was out! (At the time, I didn’t even know what social media was.)

So I spent the next months inhaling all of the information I could get my hands on about making money using social media…

implementing that information…
testing that information…
and tracking that information…

The Result – an additional 7 figures in less than 278 days using social and alternative media! (Yep! That’s a million bucks!)
You may be thinking, Holy Cow! (I know I was!)

Soon after, he got an offer from a venture capital firm to buy his business, which he sold, and I was quickly reminded that I wasn’t the employee type, so I ventured out on my own and started my own business, at the age of 26.
