"When I heard about the Pursuit 365 book being developed, I was in awe. 365 diverse women of all ages, walks of life, and nationalities, all in a book by their choice and at a cost that was affordable. I jumped at the chance to be a part. The book was a revolutionary idea that created a tsunami of excitement. The cost was so affordable, and yet I received so much - a whole page of my own in the coffee table size book, another with more content on the Fresh Magazine website, a media blast that sent my numbers soaring, and the chance to connect with 364 other amazing women. As an author who interviews and shares the stories of others, the year of isolation brought me to a stagnant place. Being a part of Pursuit 365 was the perfect way to launch out into the world with a bang, as well as reach a new audience. Thanks to the Pursuit 365 team for this opportunity and for all the hard work you did to promote all of us."
"It’s a very satisfying and beautiful experience - to be part of a creative endeavour that lifts up and shines a light on women from every walk of life. Important stories- testaments to what it is to be here and to be human."
"Pursuit 365" allowed me to look back on my own life through a lens of curiosity. Finding that one time that gave me grit, passion, skills and vision, and to put it into 365 words, was brilliant. This is such a revolutionary idea of bringing Canadian women's stories to life in one beautifully bound book. Creatively inspiring "Pursuit 365" 2021 is just the beginning of healing, joy, insight, love and motivation for all who venture into her pages. Congratulations Shelly Lynn Hughes for making such a difference to so many! Love and gratitude,
Everyone has a story to tell. Yet I didn’t think mine would be of interest and certainly not one to be in a book and later in Fresh Magazine that entailed a focus on women and their accomplishments, successes and happiness. Yet there was something in me that reached out to Shelly Lynn Hughes, the publisher, even though I questioned my story’s worthiness, it’s appropriateness. Shelly assured me I had an important story to tell! And so there it was, my daunting experience was going to be public. Becoming a co-author gave me a voice in the hope it would bring light into this mostly unknown world and help others. Writing became part of my healing. The feeling of empowerment and connection especially with my co-authors was beyond measure. I am grateful!
"I was inspired to be a co-author in Pursuit 365 when I heard the mission. What I hadn’t realized was the reach and impact being connected to so many women would have on me AND my business. As an entrepreneur who just launched a business, I had the opportunity to collaborate with several coauthors because of the exposure the book brought. This went a long way to help raise our business brand and definitely translated into sales. The Pursuit 365 teams passion for elevating and empowering the co-authors, with opportunities, long after the book has launched has been awesome! I look forward to growing and nurturing these life long relationships….we don’t have to do this alone!"
"When I heard about the opportunity to be a co-author in a new book featuring female Canadian entrepreneurs, I knew this book would be magical and wanted to be a part of it. Being featured alongside so many inspiring women and having the opportunity to inspire others with our stories is a way of giving back. The whole experience has been delightful, the Pursuit team is super organized and wonderful to work with. The print books were way better quality than I could have imagined; they are beautiful! My family members were so excited to receive a copy from me and they absolutely love it. Co-authoring a book is a gift you wouldn’t want to miss; you will have the book forever.”
