Inspired Leadership is brought to you by Power HR, Multiply Your Leaders to Grow Your Business.  Check out our new Live Video Group Mastermind Coaching Programs starting in September, 2019. Our guest on this episode is Author, Speaker, Teacher, Healer, & Guide, and Founder of the Good Deeds Project, Laura Louise Persichetti.  The Good Deeds Project is a global movement to inspire, empower and ignite great change, bringing all people together in oneness and in peace. We begin with one good deed at a time. When we ask the question, “what good deed can I do right now?” we immediately move out of our own head and into an awareness of others through our heart. When we take part in helping someone else, we not only potentially become a hero for that moment, we also physically, mentally and emotionally feel good afterwards. We never know what challenges or struggles a person may be having at a time they are in need of a helping hand. Offering a good deed can potentially save a life. The ripples are unspoken. Laura Louise is an Amazon Best-Selling author of her book: Discover You Discovering the World: Confessions of a Travelling Monkette. This book was dedicated to those contemplating suicide and designed to bring readers through a series of life lessons and adventures of world travels.  Laura wrote a children's book: Free to Be Me, which she uses in children & family workshops.  Laura loves participating in events and experiences that provide the opportunity to speak to large groups of people to share her stories, vision, and take-home tools.  Through the power of her heart and passion, Laura often leaves audiences feeling inspired and lit up.  You can book Laura as a guest speaker for your events, school, church or community organizations.  Her upcoming book, The Tired Nurse will be available soon.
