    You dream about writing a book. 

    There’s just one little problem. 

    Your life is crazy busy. 

    Between working, family, running your household, and trying to be a wonderful friend / sibling / spouse / partner / activist / everything else, there’s just not much time left. 

    So, is it possible to write a book…when you have almost zero free time?


    Come to this free class and find out how it’s done!

    At this class, you'll learn:

    How to choose a book topic that fits the reality of your life. What kind of book could you realistically write in 3 hours? Or in 1 day? In 1 weekend? 

    • 5 types of tiny but significant books that don’t take forever to write—letter book, list book, question book, how-to book, journal—so you can experience the joy of writing a book without having to write tons of text.
    • Why you might want to write a tiny book (30-70 pages) instead of a standard length book (200-300 pages)
    • Why tiny books are really powerful. Big ideas in a small package. Just because it’s short, that doesn’t mean it’s “less awesome” or “dumbed down.” Tiny books are a big deal.
    • And a big encouraging pep talk to remind you that…you really can write a book.  Many have done this before. You can do this, too. And it might not be as daunting as you think.

    During class you'll get to hear about The Tiny Book Course and be invited to join the next session! (No pressure, of course!)

     Meet the speaker:

    Lindsey Smith is a Pittsburgh-based writer, literary agent, and the Founder of One Idea Press. She is obsessed with publishing and to date, she has helped over 1000 people write and self-publish their books.

    She's written eight books of her own including her award-winning book, Eat Your Feelings, which has been published in three languages and distributed in the United States, Canada, the UK, Australia, Brazil and Poland.  

    Lindsey also dabbles in stand-up comedy and resides in Pittsburgh, PA with her punk rock husband and their adorable pup, Winnie Cooper.

    Pittsburgh Professional Women Presents:

    Coffee with the Coach

    Thursday, October 2020 at 3pm ET

    With special guest Food Freedom Coach Bobbi DiClaudio

    3 reasons Why Busy Professional Women struggle with Emotional Eating 

    SPOILER ALERT: it has nothing to do with Diet or Exercise!!

    Join us live to discover:

    • Why strict diet protocols don’t work for most women and may actually backfire
    • That food is not the actual reason you struggle with weight 
    • How meditation  is more powerful that aerobics when it comes to emotional eating

    Our guest coach for October is Bobbi DiClaudio

    Bobbi helps professional women end emotional eating so they can emerge as their most confident, sexy and wildly accomplished selves. Her clients are those who have tried every diet in the book, view exercise as a form of punishment and are not a fan of restricting themselves or their joy.  Bobbi’s straightforward attitude, fierce commitment to never ending improvement and pure dedication to sharing what she has learned with others are the backbone for her work. Her food freedom approach takes her clients on a journey that ends with them loving, appreciating and nurturing themselves on all levels. 

    She has an extensive background in fitness and holds certifications from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, the Institute for Eating Psychology, Hungry for Happiness, as well as training in Breath Work, Reiki, Color Code Personality Assessment, Personal Development and Leadership.

    Most highly successful women are familiar with stress, exhaustion and burnout.

    What if you discovered that being burned out, depleted and exhausted is a choice?

    What if you decided that it is a choice you'll never make again?

    Is All That Worrying Making You SICK?

    Tips from a Naturopath on How to Stay WELL

    • Are you a chronic worrier?
    • Have the global pandemic, racial tensions and the upcoming election caused you to worry more than usual?
    • Do you have a child that is a worrier?
    • Are your worries keeping you from eating, sleeping or getting your work done?

    Worry and anxiety can be helpful in the right situations. If you are getting ready to speak on a big stage or studying for a certification, worry can get you focused and help you to do your best. 

    Today, though, children and adults are experiencing excessive worry while constantly wondering about "what might happen." 

    Join us on Friday, December 11th for this online chat with Tracie O'Neil, Traditional Naturopath and Medical Intuitive. She'll be letting us know just how dangerous chronic worry can be to your health and practical ways you can improve your thoughts and your health. Don't want to wait until December? Connect with Tracie here. 


    If you are feeling constantly worried, it's important to ask for help. YOU ARE NOT ALONE. Ask help from friends, family, doctor, therapist or employee assistance program. Pittsburgh Professional Women has a number of mental health professionals who can help with anxiety, worry, grief, trauma, PTSD, etc. Do a search for counseling, therapy, wellness, coaching, therapist, naturopath here.
