Report on Bellows/Nelson Book Party

Champion Your Career CoverSunday, April 3, Subud members and guests from the general public were treated in the Subud House chapel to a Book Release party with Subud members Halimah Bellows and Paul Nelson. Halimah read from her new book: Champion Your Career – Winning in the World of Work, which she describes as “a blueprint for those seeking career guidance at any age.” Nelson read short poems from the book American Sentences which were “translated into the universal language of music” by Subud Greater Seattle Local Helper Jim O’Halloran on flute.

After enjoying snacks with the gathered, Nelson and O’Halloran performed poems written in April from Nelson’s daily practice between 2001 and 2014. O’Halloran deftly displayed wit in translating the sentences into music. Some sentence examples:

DraftCoverAmericanSentences14.05.07 – They want a stool sample, what a load of crap! No Pop, it’s just a smidge.

4.18.07 – Each from our respective cars watching her tennis game, the ex- & I.

4.1.08 – Do my new sunglasses make me look like a fly? she says: Superfly!

And Halimah Bellows talked about aligning your career search with your values and your knowledge of your self. She said if you were a pacifist, you’d not be happy at a job where drones were being manufactured. She answered questions from the audience and both authors signed books for those interested in purchasing them.

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, March 14, 2016 – College Instructor, Counselor, Career Coach and author Halimah Bellows will hold a book launch, signing and discussion of her new book Champion Your Career-Winning in the World of Work on Sunday April 3 from 1:00 to 3:00 at Spring Street Center, 1101 15th Ave in Seattle. Joining her will be author Paul Nelson, who will read from his new book American Sentences and will be accompanied by Jim O’Halloran on flute. Snacks will be provided.

Champion Your Career – Winning in the World of Work is a blueprint for those seeking career guidance at any age. The author gives the reader permission to dream and play and envision a passionate career path, while offering industry standard exercises for self-assessments. With college costs at an all- time high, this book takes the guess work out of “what’s next” for college bound students, returning students and those making mid-life career changes or seeking a new career in retirement.

“I felt that a comprehensive career development book for the 21st century was needed to address the critical concerns of our time—the workers who are victims of downsizing and outsourcing, the boomers who are at retirement age but cannot afford to retire and the recent college graduates who are faced with an avalanche of confusing information and are clueless about how to pursue an appropriate career path,” says Halimah Bellows. Print copies of Champion Your Career – Winning in the World of Work are now available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble websites for pre-order. The ebook is also available through Amazon and Bookbaby.

The author has also developed “Career Quest Cards, Career Coaching in a Box.” The boxed set is a perfect gift for young and old and can be ordered at Amazon. These cards are portable, practical, thought provoking and combine the best of current career search information. The boxed set contains 24 colorful cards with over 30 exercises and is chock full of ways to open creativity, think outside the box, and make best possible career choices.

A Career Quest App is available now at Amazon and from google and ibooks book stores.  More information is available and print copies can also be pre-ordered at the author’s website: http://www.ChampionYourCareer.com . For media inquiries contact Diane at info@inspiredmc.com
