My name is: Elizabeth Hamilton-Guarino.
My book is called: The Change Guidebook: How to Align Your Heart, Truths, and Energy to Find Success in All Areas of Life (April 2022).
My background before becoming an author was:
Before entering the world of self-improvement, my entire career was in the financial services industry. In 2008, I quit a job in that world and founded The Best Ever You Network. In 2010, I become a certified professional coach focused on the topic of helping people change. Soon after, I became a master coach, who trains people to become coaches.
I help individuals and organizations around the world be their best and achieve world-class excellence with gratitude-based behavior and belief systems, specializing in mindset, gratitude, facilitating change and taking action.
In 2012, I signed with Hay House to write my first book PERCOLATE: Let Your Best Self Filter Through. In 2021, I signed with HCI and am very proud that my latest book, The Change Guidebook, was released.
I was inspired to write it when:
I was inspired to write The Change Guidebook by looking around at what is going on in the world with COVID and otherwise and feeling like a book on how to best navigate change was needed. Change is constant and I feel strongly about helping us all learn as much as we can on the topic. My book is great for your best life toolbox to keep with you as a resource. I am also very inspired by my dad’s journey as a stroke survivor from 2004 to 2018. He was an ICU warrior who never gave up!
The Change Guidebook is about helping you learn about change.
Many of us know we need a change, an overhaul of the way we “do” life. We feel the need to move forward, but we aren’t sure where to place our feet to take those first steps. There are countless manuals for bettering our lives, but we crave something that will truly help us to change for the better once and for all.
The Change Guidebook ends the search for self-help that works, serving as a life-long companion guide and resource. It offers ten points for making a change or adapting to unforeseen circumstances and allows you to become a change master by using the provided solutions to change, grow and become your bravest and boldest self. These points are a process that you can engage in and turn to in times of need, crisis or to alter your life’s course.
In it, you can expect to find:
The book is divided into ten chapters and each is a point of change. Within each chapter, there is information about the point from me, two exercises and two stories from contributors who share how they have navigated change.
The most unexpected takeaway is:
The entire book is also a master class. You can do each of the exercises in the book as well as the final test and receive your certification for the cost of the book. The certification and process are free. More information is here.
It’s a game changer because:
It meets you in the moments where you know you need to make a change, but maybe you don’t know exactly what that is. It also meets you in the moment of adjusting to a change you didn’t ask for and guides you forward. My book is not just another self-help book that doesn’t really help you. The Change Guidebook will guide you. You can trust this book. It will show you how to align your heart, truths and energy to find success in all areas of your life.
My hope is that readers will:
Be inspired to confidently navigate change in their lives. I also hope that they feel so inspired that they tell someone else about the book to help another person facilitate change in their life, as well.
This book can help guide you because:
There are real examples and also real exercises to complete, so that you learn more about change. By using the tools provided within this book, you will experience the joy of living life as someone firmly grounded in values, anchored by a consistent moment-to-moment practice of gratitude.
A coach who has really mentored me personally is:
Gary Kobat. We’ve known each other since 2010 and he’s helped me learn, grow and change over the years and is a great friend and mentor to me.
