Beyond the Bottle, The Resilient Woman’s Guide to Creating a Sober & Balanced Life
By Simply Speaks
All work and no play. This cliché sums up the lives of most entrepreneurs and mainstream businesswomen. The juggling act that most women play––from taking care of their children to their spouse and the family’s elders––is not an easy feat. Add to all that the responsibility of the career most women have worked hard to achieve.
However, the most astute career woman can fall prey to the habits of taking on too much and neglecting the things that are most important in her life. More importantly, many women have not learned the art of effectively managing work-life balance.
In her book, Beyond the Bottle, The Resilient Woman’s Guide to Creating a Sober & Balanced Life, Simply Speaks offers tools to create a sober and balanced way of living. This guide will help eliminate the habits that can easily turn into long-term patterns that could prevent one from thriving in today’s hectic society.
Simply Speaks is a non-binary entrepreneur, transformational speaker, and author who works with organizations focused on women’s business growth and healing from past traumatic events. Simply provides a glimpse of the trials and tribulations that led her not only to move beyond the bottle but also to create a life that offers the freedom to experience peace, clarity, and a sober way of life. Why not learn to take a peaceful sip at life without feeling the pressure to escape your reality?

Uplevel Your Life
By Toni Moore Esq
There is something deep within the belly of your soul that you’re responsible for manifesting on this side of heaven. Whether you call it your brilliance, id, purpose, or gift, you’re responsible for using what you have to manifest pieces of Heaven on earth. Whether you grew up from a wealthy family or in poverty, God planned and purposed for you to manifest greater things. Now the question is, will you allow more to come through you than what was given to you?
From bruised and broken pieces to blessed and bankable, Women’s Empowerment Speaker, Toni Moore, shares her unapologetic guide to pushing through the shadows of hurt, shame, and poverty to manifest her version of ‘happily ever after.’ True to her brand of being real, raw, and relatable, Toni shares a story of how someone who comes from nothing can unapologetically manifest greater no matter what.
If you’re ready to break free of the status quo, make change possible, and manifest greater on this side of Heaven, then now is the time to Uplevel.
