Overview

Motivational Business Allegory Encourages Readers to Believe in Their Dreams and Offers Practical Insights for Doing Just That

“She [vivacious grocery store cashier Tammy Conley] concluded that she had been suffering the ‘Second Banana Syndrome.’ That is where one feels more comfortable being second-in-command rather than taking the helm and guiding the ship out to sea.” ~ Excerpt from Everything Is Subject to Change

Check-out clerk Tammy Conley was good at her job, and beloved too. Regular patrons would deliberately wait in her line at Erickson’s grocery store just to be on the receiving end of her dependable parting phrase, “Keep smiling!”, which was always accompanied by Tammy’s own ever-present and very genuine smile.

Friendly, curious, energetic, yet unfulfilled in her life’s work, Tammy takes a chance one day and asks a regular patron, Emma Walsh, a hugely successful retired entrepreneur, exactly how she achieved her life’s success.

Emma sees in Tammy the spark of a born go-getter, in spite of Tammy’s current circumstances: 31 years old, divorced with two young kids, and still working as a cashier. When Tammy confesses, “Quite honestly, I often feel like a complete failure,” Emma warmly responds, “Well then, it sounds to me that you are the perfect candidate to help. Let me share something with you. Truth be told…All my heroes are failures.”

Thus is born a mentoring relationship between Tammy and Emma that changes Tammy’s life in every conceivable way. Emma shares her formula of success with Tammy, which begins with reading great books and meeting new people who inspire her to embrace challenges and problem-solve rather than accept complacency. Emma’s sage advice resonates with Tammy, and the young single mom works earnestly to incorporate it into her actions and her attitude.

The result is a fast-paced tale that motivates readers as much as the main character. Tellingly, Everything Is Subject to Change features expert commentary and co-authorship from a variety of great mentors, including Alex Szinegh, Barb Pitcock, Ben Garnica, Bill Frase, Bridget Bonheyo, Desiree Doubrox, Gavin Keilly, Glenda Lane, Holly Eburne, Iris Hirsch, Joe Barbieri, LeAnne Williamson, Maile Andrus-Price, Mike Corradini, Roger Bishop, Ron Freeman, Roxane Marie Schwabe, Sam Khorramian, Savannah Ross, Shelley Radziminski, Steve Rodgers, Tina Marie, and Valerie Sheppard.

The result is empowering: as Tammy Conley’s deepest-held dreams successfully unfold, even in the face of life’s unavoidable curve balls, readers are inspired to want more from their own lives. Just as important, like Tammy, they now have a practical game plan for actively pursuing their own most fervently cherished ambitions.
