Creating YOUR Calling® will be a revelation to anyone grappling with the huge questions of purpose and calling.

Play full out with the exercises. Dive deep, write it all down, and be prepared to welcome magic into your life.”

Jennifer Lynch, Adventure Blogger and Authorof Fuck Cancer!:A Tale of Love Pouring in From Every Angle

Creating YOUR Calling®is quite simply an invitation to your authentic self, to live your life with more meaning and joy. Lani writes elegantly as she shares many personal stories designed to give you insights and light your way. She acts as your guide as you journey deep within the tapestry of your life to find what makes you truly come alive. This is your life, and Lani’s work will help you to build a life that really resonates.”
Jayne Warrilow, Bestselling Author of The 10-Day Coaches MBA

“In my thirty years as a coach, I have learned that embracing the power of satisfaction, gratitude and the act of serving others are essential aspects in living a good life. You can never truly be yourself without the joy of serving others. You can never be satisfied without connecting with otherness and living with gratitude. In spite of the powerful cultural forces that predicate dissatisfaction as an economic engine, there is a deep part of your soul that knows differently. That part of you knows the essence of gratitude and the magic of living a meaningful life. We must recover the sacredness in our daily lives. We must recover our sense of connectivity with one another and nature. Read Lani’s book. There you will find a sweet invitation.

Julio Olalla, Founder of Newfield Network
