Zen Bender Book Event

Stephanie Krikorian spent her forties trying all of the dating hacks to find love and respect, all of the diets to build self-esteem in a new body, and all of the spiritual guidance to become centered through self-care. On the brink of turning fifty she realized that being better wasn't what she craved; it was something else altogether.

Zen Bender is the story of one woman's journey to radical acceptance, with some questionable advice along the way. A witty, moving, insightful story, the woman behind bestselling celebrity self-help books shares her story of being hooked on the self-help fix for a decade before learning that all the self-help in the world won't help you trust gut.

Join Stephanie for an inspiring evening at the Margerum Tasting Room - laughs guaranteed!

The High Achiever's Guide Book Event

The High Achiever's Guide Book Event

Are you trapped in a gilded cage of your own making? Successful, but not necessarily fulfilled? Stuck, but not sure why or how to get unstuck? Your life looks fantastic on paper. You’re making money, have a career, family, lifestyle, etc. that you thought you always wanted. But now you’re there and it’s not all you expected it to be. If this sounds familiar, you’re not alone. But where do you begin? You want life to be better, but you don’t know *how* to make it better. The High Achievers Guide: Embrace the Uncomfortable, Do the Deep Work, and Create the Life You Are Here to Live provides the reader with the tools, mindset and process to do the deep emotional work, get clarity, and create the life that is truly aligned to them. A dismal 1 out of 3 people reports feeling happy with their lives. And what does happiness mean anyway? Is it fulfillment? What does fulfillment mean? Is your definition the same as the person next to you? To have something you’ve never had, you have to be willing to do something you’ve never done. You need the tools and process to determine what fulfillment means to you.

Maki Moussavi grew up in midwestern small-town America, a first-generation citizen born to immigrants. Her early life was filled with messages of hard work, chasing the dream, getting the degrees, and making the money. After creating the “success” that she’d been taught to value, she found herself questioning how the hell she ended up feeling stuck, restless and unfulfilled. An avid consumer of self-help, she found that the literature available, while helpful in the pursuit of personal betterment, didn’t quite get her to where she needed to be. She discovered the key to deep and rapid transformation is a willingness to do the uncomfortable self-examination and commit to raising the bar of expectation in pursuit of thriving rather than surviving.

Please join Maki Moussavi, author of The High Achiever's Guide, for a very special afternoon at Our Daily Nada in Kansas City, Missouri. Maki will be sharing her powerful tips to transform your life and find true fulfillment; additionally, she will be reading from her new book, answering questions and signing books.
