Have you ever asked yourself: 'With all my training, knowledge, skills, background, attributes and brilliance ...why am I still broke?' Countless people find themselves in this same position, feeling broke both financially and physically, both spiritually and in their relationships. When you feel you've hit rock bottom, how do you get back up again? From Brilliant & Broke to Inspired & Abundant features moving personal stories of courage and persistence to help you do just that. It's about how to take your unquestionable brilliance and turn it into inspired abundance. The answer is no secret: find your purpose, identify your values and live your life aligned to those values on the path that leads to your purpose. Most of the contributors in the book are everyday people whom you won't have heard of, yet they all shared a strong desire to change their situation. From a man who went from losing his eighteen-year-old daughter in a car accident to becoming an author and global speaker on road safety, to Allan Pease, author of eighteen bestsellers, who rebuilt his life after being millions of dollars in debt and then overcoming terminal cancer. All were able to go from brilliant and broke to inspired and abundant. Are you ready to change your circumstances? Are you open to a better life? If so, this book is for you.
