Since my platform is all about self publishing… the freedom of the press and the ability to have free speech is something I’m watching these days. I thought this to be a very apropos subject for discussion on today’s podcast given the state of our lockdown and messy political system we are all wrapped up in.
I’m tired of being censored and shut down on social media and I’m tired of the biased propaganda in the mainstream media! How about you?

I’ve been wanting to talk about this for awhile. Given that politics is so dividing currently, let’s talk about the division in self publishing vs traditional publishing as well…

Literary agents are calling it “a risk” that Trump choses to self publish and they are claiming he hired researchers to comb through Mr. Biden’s record and wrote the book in about three months during lock down.
The article discusses the high-level differences between traditional...
Hey Guys Nicole Gabriel here!
Today’s show is my 60th episode and I decided for these little milestones to step outside of my typical podcast material and touch on a topic related to one of the books I’ve written. Today I’m going to step a bit outside of what is written but into the energy behind the making of my first book Finding Your Inner Truth.
So, what some of you don’t know is that I am also a practitioner of shamanism and kundalini yoga. I’ve studied many metaphysical and spiritual practices over many years.
