Simone's fourth children's book is called I Am Beautiful: When I Look at Me, I See...is set to launch on February 28, 2015 at the Toronto Urban Book Expo.  This inspirational book, created for middle school aged Black girls, aims to empower and liberate them to believe that they are beautiful, despite society's notion of what "beauty" is.


    In an era where the popular idealistic images of beauty are based on the western world's realism of beauty, it illustrates that beauty begins with knowing who you are, believing it, and accepting yourself as you are.

    in Entrepreneur

    In a previous episode, Deb talked about how to increase your level of wealth with your freelance writing career using a variety of strategies involving choosing your clientele, the type of jobs you take on, and so forth. Listen to this second installment about how to build wealth with writing as we delve deeper into the methods you can use to increase your writing income through a career in freelance content writing.


    Deb makes around $40,000/year with her freelance writing career on average, due to the fact that she divides her time between her freelance writing business and her technology/media production business.

    Check out these resources when you have time, from successful freelance writer, Kelly James-Enger, who turned a $40,000/year income into a $100,000 one using a variety of techniques:

Abigail's particular talent lies in the colouring of alloys, for seeing the beauty in a plain piece of metal and being able to draw it out. Her study leads her to discover a connection between her own craft and that of her favourite childhood myth: changing lead into gold. Moving to Venice, Abigail continues to uncover more about the history of her trade while making friends, and a lover, whose lives become inextricably linked with her own. But her abilities soon peak the interests of a powerful group, determined to guard the secret that she may unwittingly expose. Delving into the deepest secrets of ancient Italy, Abigail's story will take everything you think you know about alchemy and turn it on its head.
