Join us on October 27 at 10am at the Oley Valley Comm unity Library to discuss next month’s book, “Go for No” by Richard Fenton and Andrea Waltz.
Taken from Amazon.com:
“In a world inundated with sales books on getting to yes, this book recommends just the opposite, focusing on how increasing your failure rate can greatly accelerate your movement toward ultimate success. Go for No! chronicles four days in the life of fictional character Eric Bratton, a call reluctant copier salesman who wakes up one morning to find himself in a strange house with no idea of how he got there. But this house doesn t belong to just anyone! It belongs to him… a wildly successful, ten years in the future version of the person he could become if he learns to overcome his self-limiting beliefs and overcome his fear of failure. Through the dialogue of the two main characters the authors have fashioned an entertaining story to present the key concepts essential to sales success. Readers learn… …What it takes to outperform 92% of the world s salespeople …That failing and failure are two very different things … Why it s important to celebrate success and failure … How to get past failures quickly and move on …That the most empowering word in the world is not yes… it s NO! Written to be intentionally short and to the point, Go for No! is a quick, fun read with valuable lessons that can change the way you think, sell, and live!”

Melissa holds a Degree in Early Childhood Education, and maintains current State Police, Childline Child Abuse, and FBI Clearances. Additionally, holding current CPR, and First Aid certifications. She currently works for a local school district in a Special Education setting. She has actively volunteered for a number of years with her communities Wellness Committee Events, and has taught the School Districts Junior High and High School Yoga Program. She has practiced yoga for over twelve years. Her love of yoga first blossomed when she practiced Mommy and Me yoga with her daughter Zoey which was offered at a local Park during her infancy. Since that time Melissa has embarked on wonderful a yoga journey. In 2015 she achieved certification through Child Light Yoga, 2016 brought her certification in the Hatha Philosophy of Yoga from Moyo Yoga & Most recently she studied with Janet Stone in San Francisco during a family trip to California. She is a wife, and the mother of eight wonderful children who love to do yoga with her.
Her goal is to introduce yoga to children at an early age to better enable them with techniques to deal with the stresses of daily life. Melissa is a firm believer that yoga is an essential part of a healthy life – “The Yoga philosophy brings ones mind, body, and soul into complete balance. I have seen first hand through my classroom work, and in my own children how Yoga, Ayurveda, and Meditation when taught to children at an early age can be a foundation, and lifelong tool that can assist with nutrition, focus, coordination, and a healthy way to self regulate emotion and stress. Like a lotus travels through mud to blossom, our children are on a journey where they will blossom into adults.”
She also describes Yoga as a universal language that can assist parents, teachers and caregivers when working with patients, the elderly, special needs children and individuals (especially those that are non-verbal) to bring comfort.
When Melissa’s not on her mat she enjoys gardening, cooking, repurposing furniture, arts, crafts, travel, hiking and photography. She also loves volunteering as an ambassador with the LBBC’s Raise and Reach Day for Breast Cancer held at the Philadelphia Museum of Art annually in May. She looks forward sharing The Yoga Philosophy with you and your Little Lotuses!
