Your Next Big Thing

By Matthew Mockridge

It Takes Small Steps to Bank a Big Idea

Debunking the “eureka” moment and other guru myths: We all want to know the secret to success. Matthew Mockridge is here to shed light on what really lies along the path to victory. There is no such thing as a eureka moment, where everything suddenly falls into place; instead, commitment, preparation, and hard work are the keys to pursuing a passion and making dreams a reality.

Inspiration comes from preparation: Mockridge, creator of one of the biggest electronic dance music touring giants in Europe, began as many young entrepreneurs do—in his dorm room. Everyone wants to find that million-dollar startup idea, and Mockridge reveals what he learned after years of research into creative processes. Vision, design, and construction are among the core aspects that go into making a “next big thing” game plan.

A holistic approach to entrepreneurship and relationships: While Mockridge’s advice comes primarily from his experience as a young, successful entrepreneur, the lessons he shares are applicable not only to starting a business but to social lives as well. This self-help book connects thinkers and disciplines in search of true patterns of greatness and is both instructional and conversational.

Matthew Mockridge’s Your Next Big Thing is your guide to discovering ideas that inspire. Open it up and find:

  • An entrepreneurial rough-guide and “real world” paint-by-numbers approach to creating and running big ideas
  • Advice on time management, business acumen, financial management, and building healthy relationships
  • Practical chapters such as “Matthew’s 10 Favorite Idea-Testing Tools” and “Matthew’s 10 Tips for Mega-Mindsets that Produce Ideas and Get Them Done”

If you’ve enjoyed titles such as The 4-Hour WorkweekZero to One, and Think and Grow Rich, then you’ll find more of the motivation you need in Your Next Big Thing: Creating Successful Business Ideas from Scratch.

Achieve Your Goal in 66 Days

Create new habits—and stick with them: Routines can be hard to establish. Often, our goals require us to make difficult changes in our daily lives. This daily journal by cutting-edge speaker and bestselling author Matthew Mockridge serves as a “training partner” to help us create and firmly integrate healthy routines into everyday life.

Find passion through practice: We don’t need to find our true passion before we commit to a consistent routine. As readers of the 66 Day Journal will learn, it is only through maintaining regular habits that true passion emerges. When we work hard to become good at something, such as healthy eating, maintaining a regular sleep schedule, or exercising regularly, we’ll find that our passion for the topic grows.

Ask quality questions, have a quality life: If we aren’t asking ourselves the important questions—“What am I proud of? What could I have done better?”—then maintaining healthy habits is harder than ever. This guided journal walks us through the difficult questions we should be asking ourselves every day. The carefully constructed questions combine mindfulness, positive psychology, and proven strategies for increased productivity to help you stay on track.

Dive into Matthew Mockridge’s 66 Day Journal and learn how to:

  • Break down overwhelming “marathon” goals into 66 achievable mini goals
  • Set a goal using the SMART theory (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Time-bound)
  • Visualize where you want to be and work to get there

If you’ve enjoyed titles such as The High Performance PlannerMy 66-Day Challenge Habit Tracker and Goal Planner, and Hello New Me, then you’ll love Matthew Mockridge’s 66 Day Journal: A Guided Journal for Creating New Habits.

Mindfulness For Warriors

By

Coping with the Stress of First Responder Life

A traumatic way of life: First responders have the incredibly difficult job of running toward danger while the rest of us run away. No training can prepare them for what they will see and endure. Kim Colegrove understands what it’s like to watch someone go through that. After 30 years in law enforcement, her husband took his own life. This agonizing experience opened Kim’s eyes to the desperate need for an effective form of stress-relief and support for first responders.

The power of meditation: No matter our profession, taking care of our mental health needs to be a priority. For first responders like cops and EMTs, ensuring that their heads are in a healthy place is crucial because each day can bring them face-to-face with another trauma. With 40 years of experience, Kim Colegrove is here to share with readers that there is a viable and practical resource for first responders found in meditation.

A source of hope: In 2017, Kim founded The PauseFirst Project, Mindfulness for First Responders. Kim offers the PauseFirst block of training to organizations across the country. She teaches techniques that help reduce stress, regulate emotion, and improve overall health and well-being. Colegrove’s work to bring awareness is a tribute to both her husband and the countless other first responders who struggle with the realities of their jobs.

Readers of Kim Colegrove’s Mindfulness for Warriors will find…

  • Evidence-based practices to help first responders and their families deal with stress
  • Interviews with first responders who share their stories of overcoming, surviving, and thriving
  • Colegrove’s own raw and intimate story of her husband’s troubles and how she continues each day fighting in his memory

Readers who have looked for encouragement messages and aid in books like Bulletproof Spirit, Bullets in the Washing Machine, and I Love a Cop (Third Edition) will find a further source of healing in Mindfulness for Warriors.

Prayers for Calm

By

Prayers for Calm is a collection of quotes, meditations, prayers, and affirmations from a variety of sources to provide a sense of calm in tough times. In today’s world, anxiety and its causes are all around us. According to Medical News Today (2018), over 6.8 million people in the United States suffer from Generalized Anxiety Disorder, or GAD. They also note that anxiety disorders are now the most common mental illness in the United States, affecting roughly 1 in 4 people. Whether anxiety disorders are on the rise or if we are just more aware of what they are is up for debate, but the undeniable truth is that many people either suffer from or closely know someone who suffers from an anxiety disorder. So what do we do? In the face of something so overwhelming and frightening that lives within our own minds, how do we fight to regain our calm and control? There are a variety of ways in which people cope with anxiety, but no one cure that works the same way for everyone. A well-proven and helpful course of action is drawing information and tranquility from the wisdom of others, be it from prayers, meditations, affirmations, music, or otherwise. As humans, we like to know that we are supported, and what better way to do this than to reassure ourselves that others have been where we stand and have survived? Prayers for Calm is a collection of small quips to help the reader feel a sense of reassurance and support from all around the world within the comfort of their own home. Ideally, readers can open the book anywhere, flip to a page, and find some words that speak to their situation. This book will help carry readers through a time where chaos reigns, and give them the clarity they need to find their way back to calm.

Animal Kind

By

This book will be a selection of short, non-fiction stories which demonstrate the remarkable ways in which animals help people with their mental and physical health. The book will be uplifting and inspirational in tone, and will be structured much like the ‘Chicken Soup’ books. In between each tale there will be educational snippets of information about the species of animal featured in the story. Each of the short stories will be written following a phone interview with the person who the story belongs to. Some examples of uplifting short stories could include visually impaired individuals who have gained some independence in their lives by teaming up with seeing-eye dogs, as well as how one woman who lost her arm learned to ride horses and eventually became a competitive rider. The stories will feature an array of different animals, including more surprising creatures which most people wouldn’t regard as therapeutic or beneficial to keep as pets, such as snakes or raccoons. Towards the end of the book, I will also share a never before told story how animals have personally helped me in my life which will be a key selling point of the book as I have a very loyal and engaged audience who not only love my animals, but also enjoy my journey as human who lives and works with animals too. This book aims to warm and inspire the reader with uplifting and emotion provoking stories of how animals and humans benefit and save each other through their unexpected relationships. In between each chapter will be a small compilation of facts about the animal featured in the story to add to the readers learning experience.
