Do you see more and more people in your stream yet feel isolated?
Do you yearn to be a leader who leaves a positive legacy?
Are you seeking answers?
Do you need a shot of courage and inspiration to let go of the familiar?
If you answered “yes” to even one of these questions, read The Apple in the Orchard by Sonia Di Maulo, feedback and performance improvement consultant with Harvest Performance. I love metaphors and story-telling. Sonia’s message is poignant and oh-so-gently nudges you to seize that one moment of insane courage where you take the leap that changes your life.
This beautifully illustrated little gem of a book pulls you into the tale of Brave Apple. Like so many people, Brave Apple is uncertain, disconnected, searching…yet hopeful that more is out there.
Brave Apple shakes off her lethargy, seizes her moment of amazing audacity, and follows the pull of her heart.
What does she find?
The answers and fulfillment she knew were out there. Brave Apple feels the energy, sees what she hadn’t seen before, experiences the harmony…and believes.
“Brave Apple is ready. For whatever lies ahead of her, she is at last ready.”
