DESCRIPTION:

Growing up is hard in 1972, especially if you’re 12-year-old Katherine Rose “Mosie” Bitmen. While praying her best friend’s dead aunt out of purgatory and keeping that old witch, Mary Worth, from appearing in the bathroom mirror, Mosie is sentenced to yet another month of rosary, three times a day. The reason: fighting “The Perfects,” St. Anne’s all-girl gang. Then, just when she thinks life couldn’t get any worse, it does.

When her father moves the family to her Native American mother’s hometown in the Wisconsin Northwoods, Mosie forges a friendship with a dog that’s gone wild in the swamps. To save the dog’s life and that of her soon to be born wolf-pups, Mosie has to make a decision of a lifetime.

Will she embrace her quest and seek out the legendary Dog Island located next to the Apostle Islands, somewhere out in the cold deep waters of Lake Superior? Or will she come to her senses before it’s too late?

THE SECRET TO MAGNETIC SPEAKING

What’s the “secret” to becoming a magnetic speaker?

What techniques do world-class speakers use to keep their audiences on the edge of their seats?

What tools can you use to give powerful presentations that win people over to your way of thinking?

I’ve spent the last five years of my life answering these questions.

As an introvert, I used to be envious of speakers who were able to keep their audiences electrified.

I used to think that these speakers were naturally gifted communicators; that they had won the genetic lottery when it came to persuasive speaking skills.

However, being a personal development junkie, I began interviewing these great speakers.

I studied hundreds of books on public speaking, watched countless videos of great speakers and invested thousands of dollars on public speaking seminars and coaching programs.

What I learned was that public speaking is a skill, and like any skill it can be developed if you have access to the right techniques.

OVER THIRTY TOOLS TO HELP YOU MASTER THE ART OF PUBLIC SPEAKING
