minds want to know?
What is this project and campaign?
This project is a
cooperative, volunteer effort of over 85 top North American Authors and
Business experts who believe in sharing their ideas and leveraging their
skills for a good cause. Helping Laura’s Hope create awareness and
funding research for a cure and treatment of Huntington’s disease
is a worthy cause. We are privileged to be able to use our words to help
in a positive way.
Is anyone making money from this project?
None of the contributing
authors, the publisher or any of the people doing background work on this
project is being paid. Nor will any of us receive any remuneration for
our involvement in this project. Any monies raised will go directly to
Laura’s Hope via the various Huntington’s Society offices
in several countries. Your help and contribution will go directly to help
fund research and testing.
How did you get so many authors and business experts to contribute
to this project?
I asked! ? Simply,
I started with people I knew in the Canadian Association of Professional
Speaker and the National Speakers Association. I then approached a few
top business authors with a request to be involved in our project. Their
generosity has both humbled and overwhelmed me. I am inspired by their
What is the connection with CAPS Halifax?
I was invited to be
the 4th speaker in a series of 4 full day Quantum Leap workshops hosted
by the CAPS Halifax Chapter at the end of November (2005). My session
was on taking your authorship to the next level. The idea was to demonstrate
that you did not have to be able to write a complete book to be able to
share your ideas.
Co-authoring or working with other speakers has been the launching pad
and path for quite a few ‘brand name’ speakers and authors.
My thought was asking for a few NSA and CAPS colleagues to join me in
assisting some of our attendees in creating an e-anthology. It continued
to grow from there to our current 3 volume series.
What is the connection with Laura’s Hope?
My friend, Warren
Evans lost a daughter to Huntington’s. Laura’s hope was that
a cure would be found before her younger sister became symptomatic and
succumbed to it. Many IFPS, NSA, and CAPS Speakers and Chapters have actively
been supporting this campaign. My thought was this would be a great way
to raise both awareness and funding for the cause.
Why did you include book covers in the articles?
Simple, I wanted you
to get a sense of the caliber and expertise brought to you by our authors
and I wanted you to be able to know which books to add to your success
Why is it an electronic vs. print publication?
One of the primary
reasons is to minimize the cost of production and to allow us to get this
information into the hands and on the computer screens of ten’s
of thousands. It also allowed the flexibility for a wide range of value-added
topics and chapter lengths. This allowed me to create a series of volumes
full of use-it-now information that can be applied to help our readers
