Overview

Elegance is the natural expression of prosperity.  It is who you are before you think about it and decide otherwise. 

You were meant to live an elegant life!
In a 10-year span, I experienced a painful divorce as well as the deaths of 15 friends and family members.  I reached a point where I was left asking myself:  Where do I go from here?  Where is the hope in fighting a battle that never seems to end?  

That's when I gave up the fight and looked within for direction.

The rebuilding process began with one basic step...becoming friends with the one person who, no matter how high I climbed, or how far I ran, was always with me.  That person was me!  

Through the words of the part of me that I call my Constant Traveler, the most honorable, compassionate, and elegant part of me that I can possibly imagine, I found the answers that allowed me to rest, recover, and heal.

An invitation...
The 52 statements in An Elegant Mind's Handbook are the threshold to an open dialogue with your own Constant Traveler.  Allow the most honorable, compassionate, and elegant part of you to be revealed...

Then learn how to love what you see...

In this book, you will discover the benefits of:
  • Living in the gap
  • Cultivating a friendship with your Constant Traveler
  • Embracing an Everything Gently mindset
  • Living with Fearless Faith, Focus, and Fortitude
  • Creating a personal Standard of Excellence
and so much more!

Through simple, effective practices, your Constant Traveler will remind you that elegance is pure living!
