A NOTE FROM FABI & MORE ABOUT SPARK PUBLICATIONS:
" My favorite quote: 'And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.' –Anaïs Nin
Publishing a book with Purpose with SPARK Publications is not a fit for everyone. Being a deep introvert filled with fear, I’ve needed to push beyond so many of my boundaries. In doing so, I’ve built quite a journey, have learned so much from the journey of others. WMy passion is based on a personal quest to adjust a legacy of family business failures and to professionally help other’s share their voice and knowledge to provide value to other's lives!
I’m in the process of writing my second book. And will be relaunching b2bTRIBE magazine early 2019 as a national digital magazine for business owners, so please connect with us!"
