Are You an Activist? Start Building an Email List TODAY!

You may be wondering: “Why do I need an email list? I’m just an activist. I'm already on social media; I’m constantly interacting with my followers. I don’t want to be doing email newsletters and stuff!” I hear you. I don’t like email marketing that much either. But here is the thing. All these social pages you’ve spent so much time setting up and updating? They are not yours. They may disappear from the face of the Internet any time – and you won’t be able to do anything about it – not even...

The World Needs YOU!

The world needs YOU. You have ideas that the world needs to hear about. You know things that others are ignorant about. You notice things that others are unaware of. You care about things that others think are unimportant, or simply they are too lazy or too busy or too … whatever to take the time to explore. You see things the way no one else sees them – understanding things the way only you can understand them, feeling them the way only you can, with your unique combination of strengths, and...

On Becoming a Changemaker: Why Being a Change Is Not Enough

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead Changemaker (n) – A term coined by the social entrepreneurship organization, Ashoka, meaning one who desires change in the world and by gathering knowledge and resources, makes that change happen. ---Being a Change versus Leading the Change Do you want to see a change in the world? Probably, yes, as most of us do; but if so, are you working...

Where do writers get their inspiration?

9 Things to that Inspired Eat, Love, Vegan, Recipes for Love and Life. Where do writers get their inspiration? I don’t know, as I can’t speak for all the writers. But I can tell you that mine usually comes from my own life, as well as from my desire to make the world a better place. It is my deep belief that by changing the stories we tell ourselves, we can start changing our thoughts, beliefs and ultimately our actions, and the books I write reflect that. Some may accuse me of being preachy...

The Silent Cry

"The Silent Cry” by Joanna Slodownik, inspired by “The Great Silence” by Ted Chiang Christmas has its share of outlandish legends and traditions, such as gravity-defying reindeer, Santa Claus sneaking through chimneys to deliver presents to those who were good, or the belief that at midnight on Christmas Eve, animals gain the power of speech. That last legend — common in Eastern and Central Europe where I come from — refers to farm animals and household pets alike and stems from the belief...

Why Publish a Book: 17 Reasons Why Every Vegan Should Write and Publish a Book

Vegan eBooks Take Over the Internet and Amazon Kindle
Lots of people feel that they have a message they want to share with the world by publishing a book, but never do anything about it.

As vegans, we are doing ourselves, our audience, the world, and of course, the animals, a disservice if we are not getting the message of ethical vegan lifestyle out in the world in a big way.

One of the best ways to do that is by writing and publishing a book.

In the past, it used to be really hard to get published. Today, opportunities are practically endless. There is really no excuse not to do it.

Now, I won’t be talking about going the traditional route: finding a publisher, getting your book printed, and sold in local bookstores—although that would certainly be wonderful, and who knows—it may happen, too, if that’s your goal.

However, right now, I’ll be talking about simply publishing your book on Amazon Kindle and other e-publishing websites.

This is super easy (or, at least, not as difficult as you probably think ;-))

Especially if you are a blogger and already have a website filled with insightful blog posts, delightful recipes, photographs and other content.

And even if you don’t, it’s not as difficult as it may seem to create it—you just have to decide that you are going to do it and go for it. Find out how….

5 Reasons Each Vegan Blogger Should Write & Publish an eBook

I have a dream that one day, vegan recipe books will be the only books sold in online stores and brick-and-mortar bookstores. Crazy? Maybe. Never gonna happen? Probably, unless we take publishing in our own hands. How? If you’ve been thinking about writing an eBook but aren’t sure where to start,...

It’s Time for The World To Take Notice: Why I Created Vegan Success Mastery

Coming back from an amazing vacation trip (Nicaragua-Costa Rica) last night, my family (my husband, son and I) stopped at Juke Joint, an airport restaurant in Atlanta to grab a quick bite before a connecting flight to Newark, New Jersey.

As I was finishing my veggie soup and munching on my husband’s french fries, I heard the guy at the next table (only about 1/2 foot away – as the restaurant was really crowded and the tables really closely spaced by) inquire about the Juke Joint Wings dish, specifically how big it is. The waitress explained that there were 8 wings.

Which to me immediately brings to mind that 4 animals had to be killed to create this one meal.

Just heartbreaking.
