ILM-InstaQuoteWell, it’s that time of year again; leaves are falling, nights are getting cooler, it’s time to break out the cozy sweaters, and the Fall Issue of Inspiring Lives Magazine is about to launch! The Inspiring Lives Magazine Team, myself included, have been working around the clock to make the Fall Issue our best one yet.

In case you missed it, Jackie Evancho is our cover starlet! Many of you remember her as a ten-year-old opera prodigy, but Jackie has grown into a true pop star. Dr. Shellie talked new music, growing up, true friendship, and balancing career and high school with Jackie in her family’s beautiful home. Jackie shared with us her love of seals and how she uses self-awareness to deal with haters. This was one of my very favorite photo shoots; the Evancho family was wonderful and they have some of the cutest dogs I’ve ever seen (see the adorable Maggie on the cover).

The team had a fantastic (and hectic) day of shooting TWO fashion spreads in one day. Be sure to check out the beautiful styles in “Dressing Through the Decades,” and “Lifting While Climbing.” As usual, this issue features expert advice on growing your business and advancing your professional aspirations, while staying grounded and balanced. Keeping with our focus on non-profits and charities, our team was able to spend time with amazingly inspirational survivors of breast cancer, and domestic abuse. Being a part of this project has been incredibly rewarding and we can’t wait to share it with you!

Now, there’s only one way to ensure that you have a copy of this amazing magazine, SUBSCRIBE! While it appears at 150 national drop sites, those copies fly off the shelves on a first-come-first-serve basis. If you get your subscription in the next two weeks, you’ll be guaranteed a copy of the highly sought after Fall Issue.
