Overview

In the deepest recesses of our fear lies at least one nightmare that we pray will never see daylight. Some of those dreams are unthinkable, some are life-altering. And a select few simply don’t like to travel solo. In the summer of 2009, Adrianna Larkin woke to a July morning that could no longer hold the nightmares back. They stood next to her as she locked the doors of the family retail business that for years had successfully supported her, her husband, and her son.

She was fifty years old—and when she looked in the mirror she was face to face with a sudden and complete loss of income, dual unemployment, personal bankruptcy, and foreclosure. She was staring at a stranger, and she was terrified. It was tempting to pull the covers over her head indefinitely, but instead she put her feet on the floor and took on what many would only dream of—and what she dared not to dream of as a woman in her twenties—a reinvention born of her one true passion: music.

Her story is a journey, one told in real time with heart and humor as she stumbles in believing doubt, and doubting belief, until she reaches a number of destinations where those ill-fit puzzle pieces find a truer match.

Ms. Larkin beautifully demonstrates that nothing is an accident. All can be overcome by recognizing and welcoming true purpose, and unlimited potential exists in each of us if we heed the voice of our soul and ignite our Sacred Fire. She invites you to join her on the journey—but more importantly she invites you to book passage on your own.

Meet the Author

Best known under her professional pseudonym of Adrianna Larkin, Nancy Herold is an internationally known radio host, author, keynote speaker, life coach and motivational performer, offering her unique blend of original music for personal empowerment and life transformation.
“I believe things happen for a reason”, Nancy offers. “What I was able to observe in more than two decades as a nurse, is that there is a bulletproof formula for good health: It’s called ‘being happy’”.

As the author of “Igniting the Sacred Fire, Reinventing Yourself at Any Age” she shares her personal story of “reinvention”—and return to happiness—as a full-time motivational performer at the tender age of 50, in the midst of extremely challenging circumstances.
Whether in song, speech or radio broadcast, her message is designed to be uplifting, delivered with heart and humor. Serving as both host and producer of an online radio program entitled Sacred Fire Living: Creating the Life You Really Want, Using the Gifts You Already Own, (www.blogtalkradio.com) she features guests from a variety of disciplines to inspire, inform and teach others how to live their lives more authentically through the vehicles of group and individual coaching
Since releasing her first book "Igniting the Sacred Fire, Reinventing Yourself at Any Age", Nancy has been increasingly called upon to speak to a large number of groups regarding career and life transition. Nancy offers, “So many of us—myself included—received messages when we were young from well intentioned parents, & teachers, telling us that we could not have what we wanted; that we needed to reach for a less lofty goal or seek a career other than the one we would choose for ourselves. Yet, it has been shown time and again that what we are drawn toward and inspired by, are the very things for which we have some skill or natural ability that we can leverage for our greatest success.”
“My experience is not unique. Research supports my observation linking happiness to physical well being, as well as our relationships and longevity. Still we have a tendency to overlook the two options for creating that happiness: a reframing of our present circumstances or using the power we own to create new ones.”

Nancy adds,“I encourage people to do both--and offer them tools to assist the process."
