You know the signature line by now: Everyone has a story.
That’s why this is YOUR book because the stories are all about you! I’m writing this blog today because I’m proud to announce the paperback release of The Sunday Series with Mark Brodinsky: Real Stories of Courage, Hope & Inspiration, Volume I. (http://amzn.to/2tmmdPo)
Interviewing people, sharing their stories, their struggles, their triumphs, their journey, has become a true labor of love in my life. It’s something I’ve tried to do nearly every Sunday for more than 3-1/2 years now. It all wouldn’t be possible without Marci Scher contacting me with a request to share her family’s story – as they lived the challenge of caring for their son Ian and his terminal illness, a rare motor neuron disease.
Ian lost his courageous battle against the disease in September of last year. In fact, the family is facing the very difficult time of his unveiling this weekend. The Sunday Series Volume I, is dedicated to Ian’s memory. The superhero inspiration Ian provided, and that of the Scher family, will long be remembered. I am honored to have been given the opportunity to be part of the Scher’s journey through my words. 20% of all Sunday Series book proceeds are being donated to Care About Rare, (https://globalgenes.org/), a nonprofit dedicated to assisting the families of those dealing with rare diseases.
The Sunday Series Volume I features many of the first 50 stories shared on the blog. As of the writing of this piece, we stand at 152 Sunday Series stories and counting…so you can be sure many more book volumes in the series are yet to come.
Just a few of the stories included in this first volume: Traci Kodeck and her dedication and drive to become a single mother in Soul Purpose. Penny Kinkade moving her family forward the best she can after the sudden loss of her husband Grant in Never Be Alone. Jen Drucker and her desire to openly speak about her daughter Cassie and the challenges of autism, in Unconditional. Debbie Fink and her courageous battle against a rare cancer, in All In for Life. Ivelisse Page spearheading a clinical trial which could change the world, in Believe Big. Tim Kenney and his journey back from a near-fatal collision, The Rain, The Pain, The…Gain. Richard Mosca dedicating his life to help those dealing with mesothelioma, in A Man of Good Hope. Tami Bensky keeping her husband’s legacy alive, through Larry’s Ride. Lesley Bogash changing lives and changing bodies, including her own, in Wealth is Health and even my own struggle with a speech impediment which defined more than two decades of my life, in Speechless.
The reality of life is that if you are truly living, you have a story to tell, one from which we can all learn and become more, by reading and feeling your journey. When you speak from the heart, anyone who has one will buy in. I am honored beyond belief for the trust each and every person I interview bestows upon me, as they reveal themselves and allow me to take their story and weave into one which helps to display the tapestry of their life here on this earth.
Understand that from the time we are born, you and I are doing one thing in life exactly the same – we are making our way to our final destination. But the path you take to that final destination is yours and yours alone. Regardless of what you might think, your journey is so special, you need to share it with all of us because your words and my words can impact the world. The world needs to know you came this way. It is just one reason I hold fast to my own mission: to positively impact the lives of a billion people. #OneBillion
So today I give to you a piece of my life’s mission. I am proud to serve – to give – by helping others to share their stories with the world. Today I share with you, The Sunday Series with Mark Brodinsky: Real Stories of Courage, Hope & Inspiration, Volume I.
Everyone has a story.
