PWH: Three words that define you and your brand?
EP: My brand can be described as Bold, Driven, and Inspirational!
PWH: Tell us about your New Release, “Their Validation, Your Success”?
EP: My latest release “Their Validation, Your Success Powered By Purpose” was inspired by the backlash I received upon releasing my first book “Not Easily Bothered”. In life we all have a purpose, and your purpose is derived from within you! We may struggle at determining our individual purposes, but we should never allow another to determine our purpose for us! We all hope for success, but our purpose will not be accepted by everyone, which should not hinder your purpose! You are not considered unsuccessful simply because your purpose is not validated by others. This book was written in hopes of inspiring others through their very own purpose! I share my insight of obtaining success, despite the odds that were against me! I hope that in return that other individuals will learn to differentiate between the validation of others and the measure of their success! We are not what people may think of us, but we are what we think of ourselves!
PWH: Your first book, “Not Easily Bothered: From A Vengeful Driven Divorce To A Much Happier Life” what inspired you to write this?
EP: While going through a terrible drawn-out divorce from my first marriage I found love in someone who was also going through similar events! Our exes linked up and became very vengeful, with efforts to make our divorces as difficult as possible, while attempting to get everything that they thought they deserved! After facing many battles, while still choosing love for each other, and persevering through the turmoil that was meant to break us, my new love and I discovered a method of our own and turned our negative circumstantial pain into gain! I chose to share our story by authoring my very first self published book, “Not Easily Bothered: From A Vengeful Driven Divorce To A Much Happier Life”. I wrote this book to inspire those who may be facing battles within their relationships! Whether you are experiencing a bad break up or separation, or those who may be contemplating divorce or currently divorcing, or even for those who are starting a new relationship, my book is meant to help and inspire you! Everyone deserves true love, peace, and happiness! I chose to not allow bothered individuals to rob me of my very own love, peace, and happiness!
PWH: What can readers expect from you next?
EP: I really enjoy helping others, if I can impact and make a difference in just one person’s life then I feel as if I am making a world of a difference! I look forward to writing more empowering reads that focus on real-life situations, even those situations that are not most often talked about! I want my brand to become known worldwide, simply for helping individuals focus on self-growth and self-worth! If you believe in yourself anything is possible!
PWH: What advice do you have for someone reading this who could be going through a divorce and need to share their story?
EP: For those of you that are facing a divorce, just know that you are not responsible for another individual’s actions or response, only your own. Never be ashamed of your past it is in place to make you stronger; we should always grow through what we go through! People will intentionally do things to steal your joy and your peace but once you realize that true happiness and peace starts from within you then no one can take it from you! Do not feel guilty for doing what is best for you, sometimes things happen that are outside of our control, but with prayer and perseverance you can overcome anything!
