My Journey with a Bestseller

Two weeks away from writing (among other things) are now enough. I am back to you…

I am getting into the podcast listening world and I am really mad at myself. How in the world was I late to the party? There are powerful podcasts out there, and on various subjects. It is like an all-you- can- eat buffet (you know my well-established relationship with food).  Just last week, I was into productivity podcasts and what I learned was so valuable that I now feel I want to turn my life upside down and start everything from scratch (maybe it would be unproductive but it is worth the try).


I am here to talk about something different. I can now brag and say that I have a bestseller friend. You don’t believe me? Here is the proof:

Bonjour Patrick,
J'ai écrit le livre "Introverts: Leverage Your Strengths for an Effective Job Search".
Il est devenu #1 sur Amazon pendant le premiers 10 heures et a reçu le statut de Bestseller le 1er Juillet

That is an extract of an email sent to me by Gabriela Casineanu, a former co-worker of mine letting me know that her book has just hit the bestseller list on Amazon

I was so happy for Gabriela you can’t imagine. If there is one person who really deserves success, it is Gabriela. She is a Certified Coach, trained in Co-Active Coaching and Organisation & Relationship Systems Coaching. Over the years, she has been able to help thousands of people (including me) improve their lives.

Why do I say that she deserves the success she is getting? You may ask. It is simply because she had paid the price. Gabriela has overcome a number of challenges (abusive behaviour, divorce, single mom, settling in a new country, career changes, financial issues,  … to name a few) but she never gave up on her dreams. Long ago, she decided to quit the corporate world and an Engineering position to embark on the path of heart! It was her personal choice. She never turned back.

In 2008, I took a trip with Gabriela to Las Vegas (what happened there stayed there) for a conference and she shared with me some incredible stories about herself. What I have to tell you is that when she really wants something, she goes after it with faith no matter what. I really respect Gabriela, especially her work ethic. She is very professional and she speaks her mind. What you see is what you get with Gabriela

Way to go my friend.

Here is a link to her book:


As for me, I will see you next week for another entry blog. Now I have to rush and do some stuff if I want to stay productive

Moral of the story? Do you want to stay productive? Go to Vegas and you will meet a bestseller

Always a pleasure

The Journeyman
