Please introduce yourself and tell me about your book.
Arlene Karian—My name is Arlene Karian, and I live in Miramar Beach, Florida. My book (Mentoring Your Child to Win) chronicles my journey as a former divorced welfare Mom who discovered an original process enabling me to mentor my young son to eventually rise up to become a multi-millionaire before the age of 30, in an enterprise that also contributes to others.

In a parallel journey, I also was able to change my mindset and create an entirely different kind of life experience. This book, and the process I created will hopefully help others to live the best version of themselves, in a world that needs our contribution more than ever, to heal a serious spiritual deficit.

What inspired you to become a writer?
Arlene Karian—As a child, I was attracted to poetry, it that was my first love. As I grew and developed more abilities, I wanted to share them through the writing process. Now, as a Mentor and Transformational Life Coach, being able to articulate my messages through writing has been a true gift for me, as a pathway to share my message.

What has been the biggest challenge of your career?
Arlene Karian—Realizing and making the following transition: Though my book highlights my son’s success, it has been an enlightening process to write about my emergence from being a victim to becoming a Victor. And having this knowledge, and personally representing it in my life, the emergence through life-obstacles has been the healing message I want to bring to others.

What has been your biggest triumph?
Arlene Karian—To see the life my son and his family are enjoying as the result of the foundation he was given – in spite of my struggles. We have inside of us, all we need to become what we must. Sometimes it just takes a guide to unlock that treasure. I truly believe that I can provide that healing guidance to bring out the best in others. Also, to live the process I created, and present myself as a representation of it.

What do you hope to achieve with the Author Meet, Greet & Eat?
Arlene Karian—I hope to gain exposure that this work deserves and to offer my free talk to those venues that want to host it.

What is your advice to new writers?
Arlene Karian—Hang on. Record your thoughts, messages, ‘voice’, in whatever way you can – whenever, and there will come a time when you are ready to compile it and take the next step. When you have the clarity, the space to create it will open up in unforeseen ways.

Please include links to your social media and blogs so we can find you. / Arlene Karian @lifepath12 / Arlene Karian
