Editor/Publisher … Are You Searching For A Line of Books Written For Diverse Target Audiences?

The dozen written books-to-date share an idea in different ways from adult non-fiction in story format, self-help, manifesto, and thesis formats to an adult short fiction, plus a series of children’s books. In the works, is a poetry collection and the play for schools that will be filmed and sold as a DVD too.

Initially, I chose to publish the books myself through my company, Connecting The Dots With The Respect Principle, but I have reconsidered my choice in order to free more of my time to write, which is one of the two things I love most; the other is helping people, which I use my books to do.

As a result, there are many more books waiting inside to be brought to life on paper and in other ways, including a TED Talk I am currently preparing for in order to be ready when the time arrives.

You are invited to check out my list on this blog; however, please visit the ebook distributor and retailer, www.smashwords.com, to read my interview, see my current books offered in ebook format, read the samples, or the books themselves.

While visiting my blog, discover I am not just an author, but an entrepreneur driven by the passion to create a positive global change, transforming respect from a discretionary value to the global principle … because I believe every life matters … and we can make our world a better place for everyone with just one shift in consciousness and choice.

If this idea does not excite you, then I thank you for your curiosity and wish you well.

But if you are thinking and feeling WOW! I get this and see the opportunity to do something great while making good money to do even more great things, then I expect to hear from you.

Send me a message through here, LinkedIn or Facebook, and let’s connect!

Sincerely and Respectfully,

Kaitlin Ann Trepanier

Why “Connecting The Dots With The Respect Principle” Can Change the Mindsets That Break People and Invoke Them to Harm Themselves or Others

My condolences to all 😥

BUT PLEASE NOTE … These school shootings are preventable … not by tighter security or even gun control, but by a mindset shift.

Just blaming those who harm is fruitless because those who harm are severely broken … so what is needed is a new way of thinking about and treating each other … in our homes, communities, and schools.

My anger is generated by my frustration level with people unwilling to listen and change the mindsets that break people to the point they lash out with violence, not just against themselves, but against anyone they can reach. If you really want to curtail this insanity, help me implement the changes in schools and communities with the “Connecting The Dots With The Respect Principle” books, products, and services that have the power to change what is so severely broken.

I don’t allow myself to hate anymore, but to forgive and pray for those inflicting harm.

Instead, I use my anger as fuel to engage to create the needed positive changes … because moments of outrage followed by apathy or a sense of helplessness aren’t cutting it … as the violent deaths of more youth and teachers continue.

Do what you can … introduce your school and community to “Connecting The Dots With The Respect Principle,” suggest they bring me into present the concept and discuss the benefits, encourage them to add the books to their school curriculum, secure a copy of the play to introduce the concept to their school and community … not just for me and my company, but for what my company can do to help minimize and even eliminate potential threats.

Know this … I do what I do so every child, regardless of what they might have or are experiencing, will learn they are valuable … to be respected … simply for being a life.

WHY? Because everyone who feels valued … respected will not have the desire to harm his or her self nor anyone else.

This is not a theory, but a logical, practical, and compassionate solution I developed because of what I have learned from my own experience, research, and studies and what has worked for me.

Watch the following video for why and how …

The Dark Side of Philanthropy

The ‘Black Hole’ That Sucks Up Silicon Valley’s Money

A fast-growing type of charitable account gets big tax breaks but little oversight

by Alana Semuels is a staff writer at The Atlantic. She was previously a national correspondent for the Los Angeles Times.

Extracted quotes …

The amount of money going from the Silicon Valley Community Foundation to the nine-county Bay Area actually dropped in 2017 by 46 percent, even as the amount of money under management grew by 64 percent, to $13.5 billion.

Though donors receive a big tax break for donating to donor-advised funds, the funds have no payout requirements, unlike private foundations, which are required to disperse 5 percent of their assets each year.

Cantor, the nonprofit consultant, told me that he had met wealthy individuals who said they were setting up donor-advised funds so that their children could disperse the funds and learn about philanthropy—they had no intent to spend the money in their own lifetimes.

“Right now, too many tax-subsidized contributions are being set aside indefinitely—subject to no obligation for them ever to be put to active charitable use,” Madoff and Roger Colinvaux, a professor at Columbus School of Law, wrote in a letter to the Senate Committee on Finance in July.

Amanda Litman, “Never forget that activism and politics combined have brought us …”

“Never forget that activism and politics combined have brought us suffrage, the civil rights movement, marriage equality, the Affordable Care Act, and hundreds of thousands of seemingly small ordinances and laws that together make up the fabric of our civil society. Some days it seems like pushing a boulder uphill-victories will feel small and you won’t see immediate progress. But over the course of generations, the little wins will add up, changing your neighborhood, your town, your state, our country, our world. You can be a part of that.”

Amanda Litman, author of “Run for Something: A Real-Talk Guide to Fixing the System Yourself”

Grateful for all the ways people are “Connecting The Dots With The Respect Principle” too without knowing about the global initiative to transform respect from the discretionary value it is to the global principle it can be.

Thank you Amanda. And thank you Oprah for the April 2018 Oprah Magazine with its focus, “What Would You Stand Up For?” that shared Amanda’s insights and wisdom.
