2. The title story

2. Featured Quotation

1. My ebook is ready

I couldn't wait till the end of October, I just had to share these news with you. My ebook is ready and waiting. The covers are in and it's all systems go now.

2. The title story

Have you ever come up with something - a name, an idea - and thought that you were the first person to ever come up with something like that or to think in that way? Well, it happened to me a couple of times.

When I was registering this domain name, I could hardly contain my frustrations as all of the names on my list were either booked or simply existed. I stopped using the search tool and simply typed the names with a dot com extension in my internet browser and of course I would be taken to a website. How frustrating, I must say.

Now it happened again, this time with my ebook title. I came up with a title that best described the contents and the purpose of my ebook, only to find that there is a similar title in Amazon! Hmmm! But lucky for me, there are no copyright restrictions on book titles. I debated with myself on whether to keep it or change. I finally decided to keep my original title.

And the title of my ebook is...."Say It! With Confidence!" There I've said it --- with confidence! The other book I saw doesn't have the exclamations though. Just don't confuse one for the other.


3. Featured Quote

“The most difficult thing in the world is to reveal yourself, to express what you have to. As an artist, I feel that we must try many things - but above all, we must dare to fail. You must have the courage to be bad - to be willing to risk everything to really express it all.” ~ John Cassavetes ~

(This quote is one of the featured quotes in the ebook. You know how much I love them quotes. There is a good one to affirm every topic. Next time, I'll post a paragraph from the ebook-:)

If you have no idea what I'm talking about - please refer to the chapter below, from the previous ezine.


4. We are launching a brand new ebook! will be launching our long-awaited ebook in October.

The ebook addresses common public speaking concerns such as 'fear of public speaking, lack of confidence, shyness, and the dos & donts of public speaking.' It also has a section for kids and teaches parents how to motivate their kids without causing arrogance or destroying their self-esteem. The personal case-studies will be a great inspiration for kids and adults alike. This is not a book to be missed. Visit for more information and updates... Of course, I will keep you posted right here and I promise you'll be the first to learn about the launch and the speacial offer!

Our Vision

Here in, we believe in the power of words. We believe in the necessity of enhanced and effective delivery of speeches to create better understanding, empowerment and information. Talk should teach, guide, heal, empower and inspire. It should not destroy, demean, lie, gossip, cheat, swear, or destroy - that kind is cheap and useless. That is our vision and that is what we stand for.
