We are writing a three-book All Things Wellness series with 30 authors. Our first book launches Summer of 2022 called The Four-Fold Formula for All Things Wellness. We also bring together a team of seven Media Partners and a fantastic publishing team. Our All Things Wellness Family is strong.

You do not have to be a professional writer. We work with you personally to help put your story on paper and maintain your voice. We all have stories to tell, and we help you the whole way.

If you have never been a published author, this is a great way to get your feet wet . Submitting a 2,000 word story, and letting us do the rest, allows you to test the process.

We create a sense of community, cultivate relationships, and develop collaborations by bringing together the brilliant hearts and minds of our storytellers. Real people who share their true and personal stories that change the world. Participating in a project with us allows you to connect personally and professionally with over 30 other people and multiple Media Partners with international platforms. You will be offered interview opportunities to shine the light on your message, business or other published books if you are already an author.

Co-Authors Peggy Willms and Markus Wettstein, M.D. have over 60 years in the health, wellness and medical industries. The three-book series is based on Peggy’s trademarked, ATW Wheel. Book 1, The Four-Fold Formula for All Things Wellness is being published Summer of 2022. Winning the Wellness War is projected to launch by mid-December 2022. Wellness GPS is targeted for Summer 2023. Each book, in addition to the Coach & Doc content, you will read true and personal stories from Real People.

What is Book 2 All About?

Win the Wellness W.A.R. (We Are Responsible) ~True stories of the heart, spirit, mind, and body.

Being healthy and happy doesn’t just happen. It takes awareness, education, strategy, consistency, emotional resiliency, and more. It sounds just like planning for a battle or a war, doesn’t it? We need to be tactical. And we are here to help you win it – every time.

Emotional, physical, mental, spiritual, organizational, and financial growth are the framework of any military training unit. Why do the troops form and prepare for duty? They have a unified goal for improvement – they seek a win. Your health, wellness and wellbeing are no different. Based on the concept of the  ATW WheelTM, you learn strategies to Win the Wellness War. Learn how to assess your current skill level in 24 areas of your life, and how to level up gaining strength, knowledge, and control.

When it comes to setting and accomplishing your goals, we help you get prepared for battles, assess obstacles before they happen, accomplish challenges, and keep the peace avoiding a full-on Wellness War. Let’s not surrender. Our authors sure haven’t.

Again, we are seeking 30 people to share their personal stories. People connect with stories, and they have been a part of our lives since we were little. Surely, someone read you a few fables in your early years. Change your life and someone else’s just by sharing one of your special experiences about your own wellness, wellbeing, spiritual awakening, relationship, and more.
