    From the Bottom to the Top!

    Allison Maslan shares her personal story about how she hit the bottom of her life and got run over (literally) before she rebounded and became the successful master life coach and president of the Blast Off! Life Coaching Program that she is today. She's successfully launched nine businesses, but in her times of hardship, she acquired three qualities that pushed her through the darkest times: determination, passion, and hope. In her book, she shares how to put these qualities to work to help you build a life of passion and meaning.

    The part I like best about Blast Off! The Surefire Success Plan to Launch Your Dreams into Reality is that Allison didn't leave me feeling like I had just added another paperback to the collection of books in my home library. This self-help book is accompanied by a workbook and there is a goal-setting software (Blastation) to help the reader make practical application of the material. Plus, Allison is available as a coach to help you one on one. I`ve learned so much from working with her. Once you learn the basics, or if you need group support to makeover your life, you can form your own Blast Off group using the resources, forms, spreadsheets, vision board, mini feat calendar, and assessment log included in the book.

    If you are looking for a book that gives step-by-step instruction to help you reach a level of soulful and limitless living and enjoy financial freedom, this is the book for you. Learn how to blast off to the career of your dreams, find the love-of-your-life relationship, and launch your true self into a productive, organized, and prosperous person. I'm glad I found this book and Allison. I've never been happier with my life!

    In Blast Off! Allison shares the story of her personal journey from despair to triumph. It's an insightful and engaging book, filled with specific actions you can take right now. It will inspire you to transform your own life from so-so to supersonic, just like Allison did. What a great read!

    This book will surprise you!

    Allison Maslan happens to be a homeopath, and that is how I happened upon her in the first place. I'm not one to use a "life coach" (in fact, I admit years ago I made fun of a friend of a friend when he said he was a life coach!). So imagine my surprise when Allison's book "Blast Off: The Surefire Success Plan to Launch Your Dreams into Reality" became my go-to book of 2009. There are some particular sections of her book that I must have read 5 times by now. She is a great writer, but it's her personal story interwoven with CONCRETE tactics that really kicked me in the butt. She's not a feel-good type of life coach -- she demands that you start your new life path by taking responsibility for your life. Then she lays out extremely approachable exercises that will get you where you want to go. Before I met Allison, and specifically before I read this book, I felt like my life was running me. The needs of my husband's career, my own career/boss, my children, my home, my finances always came before moi. Now, if something doesn't fall into my "Big Picture Vision" it simply doesn't make the to-do list. My body is stronger, my mind is less cluttered, and my conscience is clearer since making this book a central part of my life. And frankly, I'm accomplishing more -- financially, personally, and physically -- than I ever have in my life. I don't know where I'd be if I hadn't found this book when I did.

    Brilliant, Insightful, and Empowering

    As a solo entrepreneur, I need to remain highly motivated and focused, and always to think strategically. Balancing work with leisure is one of my daily challenges, but it's one I am learning to take care of with the help of this book. Blast Off! has become a source of inspiration for me--and I have been able to take Allison Maslan's advice and run with it. I love the way she has readers break our big picture vision into mile steps and into mini steps. I love that she has readers look at our lives in 360-degree focus. She's a homeopath, so she entirely "gets" how we are individuals--and need to lead lives that suit us as we really are. I also related to her honest depiction of times in her life where things weren't perfect (how do you drive over yourself with your own car anyway?) and yet she launched from these lessons into considerable success helping others learn, grow, and lead. It's exciting! I am glad I read it.

    Well-Written and Cohesive Book

    I was pleasantly surprised at how well-written and cohesive this book is even though it focuses on all areas of life .Blast Off will be life altering for anybody seeking to create a more fulfilling personal and professional life. Even those readers that know they want more, but have no idea what that could be. The author cleverly weaves her inspirational story and other examples of creating one's dream life, while she teaches her tried and true formula for success. This book left me with many great tools I will use in my business right away, while adding more fun and adventure in my life as a whole. I cannot say enough great things about it.

    Motivating/Empowering

    As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I know the importance of harnessing your thoughts to improve your feelings, thus behavior. Allison has a way of talking about this process in a way that is easy to grasp and put into practice. Allison's book "Blast Off" is conversational, practical and motivational. She takes her reader from self-doubting to self-empowering through clear writing, wonderful vignettes (examples) and her own story. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to find their passion, pursue it and claim it.

    Finally: A Self-Help Book that Actually HELPS You Help Yourself

    These days, the market is flooded with self-help books. Unfortunately, all too many of them leave me feeling dull and lifeless, and they don't really "help" very much. Half of the books I come across hit you over the head with "power talk" that makes you feel guilty for not being rich or for getting the occasional cold (I won't mention names, but I have indeed tossed more than one self-help book across the room because of this!). The other half usually drown you in lofty "woo woo" language that never quite gets down to practical action. Frustrating!

    For a new self-help book to stand out from the crowd and become keeper in my library, it would need to be friendly, engaging, fun AND practical. In other words, it would actually have to HELP me help myself.

    In her new book Blast Off! The Surefire Success Plan to Launch Your Dreams into Reality, author, coach and registered homeopath Allison Maslan, has achieved exactly that. Her book is a step-by-step programme to achieving some of the most challenging and important goals in life: career, relationship, health, fun/adventure, and of course financial security. In my experience as a coach, I know that when people wish to make positive changes in their lives in any of these areas, they can frequently feel overwhelmed. I know that there are two keys to helping them get started: 1) make the challenge feel light and fun and 2) break the challenge into smaller, and not so daunting, chunks. Maslan uses both of these strategies in her book Blast Off! Her creative and colourful use of language (Daily Launch Tools, Weekly Flight Assessments, etc) and her easy break-downs of tasks and targets (Sun-up Scripts, Mini-Feats, etc) give Blast Off! a quality of lightness that helps readers believe they can and will achieve their goals and aspirations. But most importantly, Maslan keeps the reader focussed on the bigger picture: life purpose and the path of your whole life. Thus, unlike other books that might just focus on one aspect of life, like money, relationships or health, Blast Off! is a holistic handbook for creating the life you want to live.

    Written with a charm that immediately makes you feel at home, Maslan avoids the downfalls of so many other self-help authors (no condescending "power talk", no airy-fairy stuff). With Blast Off!, Allison Maslan has written an accessible, inviting and honest handbook, with a sweet, down-to-earth charm and practical action steps. The combination results in something that is both believable and useful. In other words, this is one self-help book that actually IS showing you how to help yourself. Blast Off!, along with the accompanying Workbook, is kind of like having a life coach in a book. Certainly worth checking out to enhance your New Year's resolutions in 2010.
