Being a real man in the modern era is worth learning about and the dividends will pay off for a lifetime. Not only will you bring joy to all those around you, you’ll be happier, too. Once you master this, you’ll live the good life.

A fresh voice in style, attitude, manners and body confidence for men, Kelvin is a model and major Instagram influencer who has been featured in Glamour Magazine, Buzzfeed, Cosmopolitan and much more.

In his words, “You can choose to be great; clothing has sizes but style does not.” This book is a treasury of information covering all the bases from how to date (Hint, pulling up and waiting for her in your car is wrong, you’re not freaking Uber!) to social skills to etiquette for all occasions, even including counsel on improving your character.

11 SECONDS TO SUCCESS: LIVING YOUR DREAMS THROUGH SNAPCHAT ART

 

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN SOCIAL MEDIA SUCCESS STORIES?

Here's a living your dreams story that should inspire everyone ─ the living your dreams story of CyreneQ, a modern Cinderella fairy tale.

(See: "Here’s how a 26 year-old is making up to $30,000 per Snap on Snapchat", by Morgan Linton, co-founder of Fashion Metric, November 30, 2016)

 

CREATIVE SNAPCHATS & FUNNY SNAPCHAT DRAWINGS

The next time you are sitting in a long, boring meeting and your mind starts to wander might be the very moment you find your destiny. That is exactly what happened to Cyreneq who began doodling funny Snapchat drawings during a particularly snoozy conference room session. Soon after, she went on to rule that burgeoning social media platform with her Snapchat art and her funny Snapchat drawings. Cyrene Quiamco has become a prominent personality with her creative Snapchats on a social media platform that is designed to make content disappear. Since joining Snapchat, Quiamco (who goes by "CyreneQ" across most social media) has amassed a following for her whimsical Snapchat art ― from celebrity portraits to collages of Disney characters ― and interactive creative Snapchats. She engages her community with her highly imaginative and appealing art, quizzes, games and questions, transforming a series of short-lived snaps into a conversation. She's also the creator of The11thSecond.com, a blog and community for creators of Snapchat art to share their work off the platform. Award-winning CyreneqQ was recently  nominated for the Shorty Award which recognizes the best in social media.

 

LIVING YOUR DREAMS ─ DO WHAT YOU LOVE

This modern fairy tale story (complete with Disney Princess self-portraits of the artist) starts in the Philippines where her family comes from. Cyrene gets her moxie, drive, spirit of self-invention and incredible work ethic from her mom, whom she counts as a main inspiration to be fearless and go for living your dreams. As she puts it, “I've always been an artist ever since elementary school, but I didn't really know how to apply that to the real world.” How she applied her artistry and originality to the modern world of social media is one of the most fantastic social media success stories of the 21st century.

 

DO WHAT YOU LOVE THE MONEY WILL FOLLOW

Cyrene's Cinderella "living your dreams" story is one that will have you dusting off your dreams. Cyreneq reminds us all of the power of our own imagination. Unleash that and nothing can stop you!

 

What you’ll learn inside "11 Seconds to Success":

• How to harness your personal creativity and apply it to the real world

• What CyreneQ really means in her motto “No excuses for starving artists!”

• How to "do what you love the money will follow"

• Up your social media IQ and your earning quotient, too!

Goddess Power

By

At the dawn of religion, God was a Woman. The Divine Feminine is known by innumerable names and symbol-rich manifestations across the world's cultures. Throughout the ages the Goddess has been honored and worshiped as the Virgin Mary, Isis, Inanna, Asherah, Diana, Kuan Yin, Kali, Oshun, Athena, Pele, Sarasvati, Demeter, and White Buffalo Calf Woman, to mention just a few. Many conceptions of the Goddess are mysterious and seemingly paradoxical. Yet at its source the Divine Feminine is one. Goddess Power takes you on a fascinating and, at times, surprising journey into the enduring essence of the Divine Feminine.

Inside this book you will learn:

  • How the Goddess path offers an empowering message and inspiration 
  • The importance of re-establishing a healthy balance and integration of both the masculine and the feminine archetypes
  • That the notion of God as archetypal "Sky-Father" is fairly recent in Western culture
  • Why the wisdom of the Goddess/Sacred Feminine has been ignored, distorted, and oppressed for centuries
  • How archetypes, mythic narratives, and qualities of Goddesses are alive within you and how they reveal intimate truths about yourself and others
  • How Goddesses can serve as empowering guides in your personal and professional life
  • Why especially black Goddesses/dark-skinned Mothers (e.g., Kali or Black Madonna) are a powerful symbol and catalyst for change in our times, both individually and collectively
  • And much, much more!
