    The Simple Life: Shiny Objects Not Required with Author Kita Szpak

    in Self Help

     “The SIMPLE Life: Shiny Objects Not Required” was released in March by Motivational Press.  The book focuses on the process of moving from a busy, distracting life to a simple life of purposeful living where once-present shiny objects are no longer necessary or desirable. Not overwhelmingly academic and appealingly short (for those with little time to read, and who likely are the best candidates for this book), The SIMPLE Lifeis an excellent choice for those who know their overly-scheduled, distracted lives are at breaking point but don’t know how they got to this point or how to go about making a change for the better. 


    Kita Szpak cares a lot about people. With her straight, thoughtful talk, she not only makes people feel good about themselves but empowers them to lead lives with purpose.


    Kita Szpak is a Canadian author, happiness expert, speaker and publicist. With two honors degrees in Education and German (Queen’s University, Kingston, Canada), along with an initial speaker’s certification from Fred Pryor Seminars, and business management certification from Queen’s University School of Business, Kita has combined her entrepreneurial expertise, media relations savvy, outstanding people skills, and writing creativity to position others for personal and professional excellence.
    Kita provides valuable advice and guidance for those who are asking, "Is that all there is?" For the past few years, she has combined personal experience and spiritual growth, professional work in the areas of publicity and public relations, research, and study to understand and help people remove their life blinders and discover the "jewels in their garden".

    SpokenHeard with Kita Shantrisand Susan Dobbe Chase

    in Poetry

    Slyly sexual, intense and funny, in What Snakes Want Kita Shantiris strips secrets of their power by telling them. Running away and returning, burying and unearthing, she—and a cast that includes abused siblings, desperate spinsters, and an army medic—struggle to escape their shadows. Throughout, startling metaphors and evocative images bring them to life.


    A psychologist who runs a non-profit mental health center, Shantiris faces trauma, yearning, love and loss head on. What Snakes Want traverses a menacing, bleak landscape as its characters shed their ghosts. Full of word play and mischief, sensuous love poems follow; never have oranges, or the word "dictum," been racier. The haunting elegies in the final section breathe life into the dead.


    Fearless and compassionate, in What Snakes Want Kita shines light in our dark places. You will return to these haunting poems again and again.

    In recent years, researchers have come to see that happiness is more than just a feeling. The state of being happy or content has a profound effect on how we work and how we affect those around us.


    When you run a business, whether you have a team or you're a solopreneur, your attitude has a strong affect on how productive you are.

Keeping the workplace positive, upbeat and a fun place to be is a crucial component to growing your company.
