Dorothy Thompson: Can you tell us about your publishing experience?
Gabrielle Pelicci: I have been published in magazines, newspapers, journals and digital publications. You can find me on Elephant Journal, MSNBC, SheKnows.com and more. I decided to self-publish my book Blissful Business: A Gorgeous Guide to Creating Your Dream Career in Health and Wellness because I wanted total creative freedom and I want to produce it quickly and efficiently. I came up with the title “Blissful Business” because I am blissful when my business is running smoothly and I believe that everyone should have the same experience with their work – joyful, happy, satisfying pleasure of doing work that you love and having a positive impact on the world. I designed this book so that it would be super easy to understand and super effective in helping others to have more success no matter what stage of business that they are in.
I wrote this book because I really wanted to share everything that I’ve learned about how to build a purposeful and profitable holistic business and I wanted the information to be affordable and accessible to new practitioners like yoga teachers, massage therapists, acupuncturists, naturopaths, nurses, homeopaths, energy healers and other light-workers.
There is so much information out there and it can be really overwhelming. This book is a simple, easy guidebook that covers all the critical things that you need to know to be prosperous. It is both creative and practical – a combination of both left and right brain thinking – a truly holistic approach.
