The Ultimate Manual: Decide Now To Live With Intention
Elkhart, IN. One of the biggest regrets people have in life is that they didn’t do what they wanted to do and instead did what everyone else told them to do. But it’s possible to break the cycle by simply deciding now to live a life of intention.
Craig C. Sroda, founder and former CEO of Pinnacle of Indiana, provides actionable, step-by-step instructions for living a more purpose-driven life in The Ultimate Manual — a personal life coach in a book.
With 232 pages of clear, customizable exercises, The Ultimate Manual guides readers on a journey of discovery that will provide insight into the following areas:
• Emotional Intelligence
• Love Languages
• Turning Points
• Life Wheel Evaluation
• Time Usage
• Core Values
• Legacy Thinking, and more
Additionally, Sroda teaches readers how to take everything they’ve uncovered and synthesize it into a unique, one-page life plan — a dashboard of sorts to keep front and center that will help readers stay on track and accomplish their goals.
Anyone of virtually any age who is seeking purpose and looking for affirmation for their life direction will find valuable information between the covers of The Ultimate Manual that will help them live their lives on purpose — with purpose — and minimize regrets.
Author Craig Sroda’s mission is to guide people toward ways that work for them to live their lives intentionally. His goal is to influence 100,000 people to create a life plan by 2022. With the ripple effect, those 100,000 people will influence one million through their five domains of life: personal, family, vocation, community and faith.
Sroda co-founded and served as CEO of Pinnacle of Indiana — one of Indiana’s largest Microsoft partners — for 18 years. His passion is helping individuals operate in their “sweet spot”— a place where their passion and strengths intersect so they can maximize their potential. Sroda’s previous books include You in the Sweet Spot and Intentional Living and Leadership. After completing his first life plan and exposing priorities of his faith, his wife, three daughters and wanting to help others live on purpose, he sold his company. He is committed to helping others recognize their natural strengths and know their “why.”
Learn How To Stop The Interaction Of Elements That Produce Cancer
Hampton, VA. No one wants to hear from their doctor that they have cancer, and only six months to live. But these are the words that Dr. Carl O. Helvie heard 44 years ago. While his doctor encouraged him to begin traditional treatment right away, Helvie knew there had to be another way to treat his cancer without the negative side effects of radiation and chemotherapy, or the invasiveness of surgery. After a lot of praying and a good amount of soul-searching, he opted to look for an alternative way to beat his cancer.
Today, Dr. Helvie is the longest-living lung cancer survivor in the world and he credits this with his decision to take a holistic approach in his treatment. His treatment proved so successful, Dr. Helvie used it to develop a simple plan that he shares in his new book, Reducing Your Cancer Risk: A Holistic Approach (Booklocker Inc.). It’s not complicated—it’s not rocket science—but it is based on years of proven research. The book explores the environment that brings cancer and the human body together, and offers steps to take before these three elements interact to cause the disease.
Listed in ‘50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading in 2014,’ Helvie recommends anyone receiving a cancer diagnosis to take the time to really think about what they want to do for their treatment plan. Adding, “People shouldn’t jump into chemotherapy or surgery if they don’t have all of the information and have a chance to think about it.”
In 2014, Dr. Helvie founded the Carl O. Helvie Holistic Cancer Foundation—a foundation different from other cancer foundations in that they focus on the holistic approach and multiple aspects of education, research and patient care for many types of cancer. For each area of content in the book there is a review of current research studies, and steps we can take to avoid carcinogens and strengthen the body. Also included are interviews with over 40 national leaders, discussing vastly different areas ranging from GMOs and EMTs to gratitude and forgiveness. There is also a how-to section that covers everything from meditation, gratitude and faith, to minor changes in diet, drinking water and reducing stress.
A prolific author, Helvie has written 10 books, more than 55 articles, and has presented 57 research papers throughout the US and Europe. In retirement, he focuses his research on natural interventions for health issues, which led him to develop a nursing theory that has helped him establish a nursing center and improve primary care for homeless and low-income families. Since retiring, he has written two more books and served as the host of a holistic health radio show. In 1999, he was presented the Distinguished Career Award in Public Health from the American Public Health Association. He has been interviewed on more than 150 radio and television shows about his two most recent books.
I was referred to Trish Stevens for marketing my first book, Fighting Parkinson’s…and Winning. Trish immediately was responsive to my needs. Within a few days of getting started with Ascot Media Group, my first press release went out. It was a professionally drafted press release that expressed the core of my book. I received 14 media leads the first day, including requests for radio interviews and people who wanted to read my book for review.
Throughout the media campaign, I received over 50 media leads, had many radio interviews, and have received professional reviews of my book. Some of the media outlet leads have included ABC radio, a couple of world-wide radio stations, and journal editors from publications at a few large universities.
Trish and Ascot Media Group exceeded my exceptions by delivering very solid results on my PR campaign. Ascot Media Group has my highest recommendation. They know their business well, are easy to work with, and they are extremely responsive to their clients.
“Being a new published author, I wasn’t sure what to expect from a PR/media firm. When Trish Stevens reached out and immediately set up an introductory call, I knew I was in great hands. She took the time to walk me through the entire process and then immediately followed up with a number of invaluable resources. I have been so pleased with the quality and number of leads from the initial press-release. Trish and her team are truly a delight to work with-so much so- I’ve renewed my contract with Ascot media”
Ascot has been terrific to work with, and they do get results.
I have used a few different PR firms. Many are a rabbit hole of promises and false hopes. Ascot is the real deal. They did a great job with my first book. They secured numerous high-end endorsements, over 50 reviews, 4 TV interviews and multiple radio and pod-cast interviews. At one point, I had too many interviews! Trish is sincere and they all work hard. I just signed up with two more books with them, and the results are even better. I am happy with their results, and I do recommend them.

Just a short endorsement of Ascot which did a great job of getting two books of mine, Work and Wealth in Scripture and Cleared for Landing: On Leading a Christian Life, some excellent exposure among book reviewers, some television and radio spots, and, in sum, they really do deliver what they promise. I enjoyed the professional and personal exchanges with the staff at Ascot and recommend them as people who indeed do what they say they can and will do.
