Kathleen Gage
Contributing author – Align, Expand and Succeed

1.    This book is about conscious business and being a conscious entrepreneur. What does
being a conscious entrepreneur mean to you?

Being a conscious entrepreneur encompasses many aspects of a person’s makeup; integrity, honesty with oneself and others, higher consciousness, willingness to do the right thing regardless of the outward evidence and opinions of others, vision for a better tomorrow and a belief that we truly are a global community of connectedness rather than separation.

2.    What inspired you to be a contributing author in Align, Expand and Succeed?

I have considered myself to operate from the space of consciousness and awareness for years. When I first heard about the book and what the main purpose was, I knew this was something I not only wanted, but needed, to be a part of.

I know how essential it is for people to be willing to speak a truth that often we have been told is “not the way” business operates. Truth be told, there is a major shift going on in business. The status quo no longer applies.

3.    Why is the topic of Align, Expand and Succeed important to you?

In order to fully live one’s purpose it is essential to know what the primary values are. Based on this knowledge the greatest gift we can give to others is to be in complete alignment with these values. Do we hit the mark 100% of the time? Not likely, but it is something to strive for.

The more in alignment we are the more likely we are to expand into a level of success that reaches far beyond simply the outward evidence of success. It applies to virtually every area of our life.

4.    Why are you specially qualified to write about this topic?

As I wrote in my chapter, my life was not always one of being in alignment, nor one of success. Actually, just the opposite was the space I resided in for many years. Due to fear, uncertainty and inappropriate choices my life could not have been more out of alignment even if I had designed it to be such.

Through a series of events, mentors, teachings and the willingness to do things differently, my life went from one of lack, fear and failure to one of clarity and success beyond what I could have imagined.

It’s very important for someone to understand what success means to them and from this perspective determine what needs to be done to achieve success. Again, it goes beyond the material and more to a state of mind.

With the right state of mind we tend to have the right state of condition.

5.    Do you write to make money, for the love of writing or both?

Actually, both. Although I love to write, there is some of my writing that is specifically for business reasons. Yet, there is a strong love for this type of writing.

I make a great deal of my income from writing. So yes, making money is definitely a part of my motivation. Yet, I find that when I don’t focus simply on the money but the message I am being called to communicate, the money easily follows.

6.    What makes you proud about your involvement with Align, Expand and Succeed?

I am thrilled to be among the company of people like Christine Kloser and Lynne Klippel, the publishers of the book. As the marketing director for the book I have an amazing team of people who make my job very fulfilling. The co-authors are amazing men and women who know there is a higher purpose to running a business.

And finally, knowing the impact this book will have on those who are fortunate enough to read it is very much something I can be proud of.

7.    What does the future hold for you and your books?

I write. That is what I do. I hold no expectation on where that will take me. I learned a long time ago that when I do what I am here to do the rest takes care of itself.

I am constantly developing information products which is a huge part of my writing. I am also working on a book that is more of the philosophical genre. I love writing about my view of life and the insights I am blessed to be able to share.

But as far as something specific and a certain outcome, can’t really say at this point.

8.    What makes this a book that other people MUST read and WHY?

There are only a few things we MUST do in life. Reading this book isn’t necessarily a must. However, I can assure anyone who reads it, you will go through a shift in perception.

The chapters are amazing and each has a very important message for the reader.

9.    What sparks your creativity? Any tips to help others spark their own creativity?

Being out in nature is definitely a “creativity spark”. When I work in my flower gardens I tend to have lots of creative thoughts surface. And hanging out with creative people is another surefire way to spark my creativity.

10. What do you think motivates people to become authors? What motivated you to get into this industry?

Writing and being an author are two different things. I believe lots of people have the dream of writing but also have a fear of being judged. Those of us who write because we have to, simply write because we have to. There is something we want to share.

To keep that something inside can literally kill our spirit. To be willing to put it out there is the greatest gift we can give ourselves and others.

11. If a potential reader thinks that your book wouldn’t interest them, what would you say to convince them to buy?

If you are ready for a shift in perception on how businesses can be run, this book is for you. There is an emergence of men and women who are definitely willing to do things differently. The book is chock full of example after example of the obstacles many of us had to overcome to get to the place of “To thine own self be true”.

12. What is your final message to our readers?

When you get to the end of your life and all is said and done will you be one who says, “I wish I would have I wish I could have?” or will you be one who says, “I lived my truth and the world is a better place because of it?”

  9. “The more in alignment we are the more likely we are to expand into a level of success that reaches far beyond simply the outward evidence of success. It applies to virtually every area of our life.”

    I love this! It is so true. Alignment is the first step that allows everything else to flow and flourish. And our businesses are so intertwined with the rest of our lives, that when something is out of sync it effects all aspects of our lives.

    Align, expand, succeed!!

  19. Many persons do not ever put down to accomplish their ambitions, or never set their own goals to begin with, because they get a fear of disappointment or rejection. Sometimes they don’t seriously think that they are able to achieve this, or probably they erroneously believe that if they simply tell themselves what they want plenty of times, their goals will magically be achieved.
