Overview

     Do you feel like a hamster on a continuous wheel, running on empty in the endless pursuit of success? Are you trapped in an office, buried under work, or otherwise so busy that you never see your family and friends? Do you fantasize about a real soul connection, a relationship in which you can have time together without your BlackBerry interrupting every five seconds? In other words, do you crave a life that matters, one in which you’re tapped into your creativity and living with purpose each and every day?

     Heather Wilson knows exactly how you feel. For years she was caught in the “success spiral,” until she finally broke free by simply planting a garden. In the process, she rediscovered what gave her enthusiasm for life—and this ultimately led her to quit her job as a corporate executive at a Fortune 50 company and help others find their own paths to authenticity, joy, and true freedom.

     In this insightful book, Heather illuminates how what she learned in her garden can work for you, too . . . and you won’t get any dirt under your fingernails. You’ll discover greater self-awareness and the ability to live a life of creative expression and endless possibilities with the nine Seeds of Freedom. As a result, you’ll learn how to “own” your life on and off the clock; connect with your true self, as well as be present for deep and meaningful relationships with others; and explore your full potential. Before you know it, all aspects of your life will be vibrantly in bloom!
