Why is our compilation book for you?

We are writing a three-book All Things Wellness series with 30 authors. Our first book launched in September 2022 called The Four-Fold Formula for All Things Wellness. You can purchase a personally signed book on my website. We also bring together a team of seven Media Partners and a fantastic publishing team. Our All Things Wellness Family is bar none.

We provide editing, publishing, marketing, and media opportunities at no extra investment. You also receive more benefits which are covered below.

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

Submitting a 2,000-word Story, and letting us do the rest, allows you to test the process if you have never been an author before.

We create a sense of community, cultivate relationships, and develop collaborations by bringing together our storytellers’ brilliant hearts and minds. 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. In addition, you will be offered interview opportunities to shine a 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 four-quadrant, 24-spoke wellness wheel – the ATW WheelTM. Book 1, The Four-Fold Formula for All Things Wellness released in September 2022. Winning the Wellness War is projected to launch by Spring 2023 and Wellness G.P.S. (Get Prepared for Success) is targeted for Winter 2023. In addition to over 40 true and personal stories, you receive The Coach & The Doc health and wellness content and tips.

What is Book 2 All About?

As we said, the framework for the ATW series will consist of four sections/chapters just like the ATW WheelTM – heart, spirit, mind, and body. Each story finds a home in one of the chapters. As an example, if your story is based heavily on the trials and triumphs of a relationship, it will most likely be in the Heart section. 

Heart: Emotions, Relationships (human, animal, spirit), Stress, Self-Care/Self-Love, Coping Skills, Value & Integrity

Spirit: Purpose (goals and dreams), Beliefs & Faith, Talents & Gifts, Rituals, Creativity, Harmony (Work, Life, Play balance)

Mind: Mindset (thinking/attitude), Learning, Personal Growth & Awareness, Home Environment (routines), Habits (organization, planning), Work Environment (time management, job satisfaction, finances)

Body: Exercise, Nutrition/Diet, Medical Care (mental and physical health, diagnoses of all sorts: cancer, diabetes, thyroid, Eating disorders, etc., medication/medical mishaps, treatments, and more), Sleep (conditions, struggles, dream/nightmare states), Lifestyle.

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? So 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 well-being 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 by gaining strength, knowledge, and control.

When setting and accomplishing your goals, we help you prepare for battles, assess obstacles before they happen, conquer challenges, and keep the peace avoiding a full-on Wellness War. Do not surrender. Our authors sure haven’t.

Again, we are seeking 30 people to share their personal stories. People connect with stories. 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 extraordinary experiences about your wellness, well-being, spiritual awakening, relationship, and more.
